Latitude organiser and UK music promoter, Festival Republic, has announced new traffic plans for the 2016 edition of the award-winning festival.

The changes will include three different routes to the Henham Park site to ensure traffic is balanced more appropriately in the wider area, improving traffic flow in the vicinity of the site.

Signage will be redesigned and extended to match the new plans and ensure more clarity.

There will be a specific route for family ticket holders, the routes will be advertised in advance.

A new post has been created of Offsite Traffic Co-ordinator and an ex Traffic Police Officer have been appointed to deliver the traffic plan; liaising with Police, Highways and public transport operators, to provide regular updates via media and social media.

New exits and entrances will also be created and car parks inside the site will be altered to accommodate the new plan; with the car park located on other side of the A12 no longer being used, there will be no delays from pedestrian crossing in that area.

All plans stated above have been agreed with the relevant agencies.
