The other side, the Ellerslie Road Stand, is single tiered, with a television gantry suspended below its roof. On one of these, the School End (where the away fans are located) there is a large video screen located on the centre of its roof.
Below this and situated between the lower and upper tier is a small electric scoreboard.
Andreas Iona adds; ' South Africa Road running past the stadium, closes to traffic ninety minutes before kick-off on all matchdays.
The Police enforce the road closure which remains in place until approximately 15 minutes after kick-off.
There are no pubs for away fans in the immediate vicinity around the stadium.
In nearby Shepherds Bush Green there are a number of bars, however, most do not welcome visiting fans and employ doormen to enforce this, checking match tickets on entry.
Another plus point is that the food served within the ground is quite good and the service prompt.
However, on the plus side, I have never experienced any problems at Loftus Road.
At the point where the A40 becomes the A40(M), turn off onto the A40 towards White City/Shepherds Bush and turn right into Wood Lane, turn right into South Africa Road for the Loftus Road ground.
There is not much in the way of parking near to the ground.
Matt Garside from Southampton suggests; ' It's probably easiest to just park on the road in this area as it costs £6.60 for three hours parking'. However, there are a number of restricted parking zones around the stadium so be careful where you park.
Eddie a visiting Aston Villa fan informs me; ' You can also park at the Westfield Shopping Centre in Shepherds Bush. If you sign up in advance to their Smart Parking Scheme, then you can park there for £6.' There is also the option of renting a private driveway near the Loftus Road Stadium via Your Parking uk.
