Police officers are urging motorists to leave extra time for their journey as the Suffolk Show opens its gates tomorrow.

Queues are expected as thousands of people flock to the event at Trinity Park over the next two days.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said: “The sheer volume of traffic heading to the site inevitably means there will be some delays, particularly near the A12/A14 Seven Hills junction.

“Thousands of visitors are expected to attend the two-day event and, as there may be some disruption, police are asking drivers to think ahead and either leave more time for their journey at peak times or, if appropriate, to find an alternative route.

“Regardless of whether you’re heading to the Show or not officers are urging you to follow signing and directions from traffic management staff and police to ensure things run as smoothly as possible.”

Drivers heading along the A12 from Woodbridge will be directed along the Bucklesham village route, while those approaching from the A14 will be diverted off at the Seven Hills roundabout.

The spokeswoman said traffic heading to Trinity Park from Ipswich should use the Bucklesham Road access, Gate 4.
