Traffic marshals will be out in parts of Norwich tomorrow as the city gears up for one of the busiest days of the Christmas period.
The mix of Norwich playing Brentford at home and just three more weekends until Christmas Day is expected to leave the city packed.
Roads in the centre have already been gridlocked this week, with queues building down Ber Street and past Finkelgate yesterday.
But, tomorrow, traffic marshals will be on hand to guide traffic at both The Forum and John Lewis shopping centres.
Variable messaging signs (VMS), which let drivers know whether the city centre is at its peak so they can use Park and Ride, will also be in place.
A Christmas journey planning website for the city - www.norfolk.gov.uk/tfn - has been set up by a partnership including the city and county councils, local business representatives and transport providers
