Police and Latitude Festival organisers have announced plans to ease traffic congestion around the site ahead of the event later this week.

The A12 and the A145 around Henham Park, near Southwold, will be particularly busy on Thursday, Friday and Monday as tens of thousands of festival-goers head to and from the event to watch acts such as Bloc Party, Kraftwerk and The Foals.

The festival will be clearly signposted and information has already been given out with the festival tickets.

Temporary traffic diversions and orders will be in place with speed limits of 30mph and no stopping orders in force along the A145 and A12 in the vicinity of the gates onto the site, which will be in place from Thursday to Monday.

Temporary traffic lights will be in operation on the junction of the A145 and the A12, and the junction of Middle Barn Lane and the A12 all day on Monday. People should allow additional time for journeys in the area.

A one-way system will be in place westbound from the entrance to Henham Quarry along Middle Barn Lane and Craven Manor Lane to the junction with the A145 from Thursday to Sunday night.

Also, eastbound, a one-way system will be in place from the A145 along Middle Barn Lane past Henham Quarry to the A12 on Sunday night and Monday daytime.
