Up to 90,000 people are expected to descend on the showground today and tomorrow for the annual two-day showpiece event.

Congestion has been fairlyminimal in recent years but due to the sheer volume of traffic heading towards the show site, it does lead to hold-ups, particularly around Seven Hills.

Police are asking people going to the show and those who aren’t to make sure they leave extra time to travel.

Drivers approaching along the A12 from Woodbridge will be directed along the Bucklesham village route, while those approaching from the west along the A14 are asked to come off at the Seven Hills roundabout, use both lanes on the slip road off the A14 and then utilise two lanes around the roundabout itself towards the showground.

Vehicles travelling eastbound on the A14 attending the Suffolk Show are also asked to use lane one after junction 57, with other traffic travelling to Felixstowe urged to use lane two to avoid unnecessary disruption.

Traffic from Ipswich should make use of arrangements along Bucklesham Road to access Gate 4, while those approaching from Felixstowe should follow signing off the A14 prior to the Seven Hills junction. Drivers are being asked to follow these routes in reverse when leaving the showground, with two lanes of traffic flowing from Gate 10 back to the Seven Hills interchange.

If you spot anything on the roads, contact the newsroom by calling 01473 324788.
