Traffic latest: Royal Norfolk Show organisers happy with traffic flow following early meeting
After an early meeting about the traffic management at the Royal Norfolk Show, vehicles are moving as planned and organisers are satisfied that they are controlling the traffic flow well this morning.
Event organisers personally surveyed the situation on the roads around the showground, near Costessey, at 8am this morning.
Sarah de Chair, show manager, said: 'Traffic is flowing well. We are utilising the traffic lights on the Longwater roundabout in order to cope with the both the show traffic and the early morning commuter traffic. We have seen the whole thing in operation and it is working as it should.
'There will inevitably be queues, but we have tweaked the management plan this morning to make it run as smoothly as possible, and everyone arriving will be marshalled.'
Chief executive John Purling said: 'The system is absolutely necessary to allow traffic flow in both directions, and we have seen that the traffic is moving efficiently.'
