AVOID PETERBOROUGH THIS WEEK
The Annual mega traffic snarl up on the A605 Eastbound and surrounding roads into Peterborough as the huge LAMMA 15 farmers midweek show builds up at the Peterborough Showground, in addition to being billed as the UK 's largest farm machinery, equipment and agricultural services outdoor show, it year on year creates traffic management problems.
Expect dozens of slow moving transporters and combine harvesters clogging the rush hour feeder routes. They are expecting some 10,000 cars daily during the show.
To make matters worse, the misguided Bourges Boulevard works which seems to be ONLY worked on during weekday office hours... and with a small crew of 9 .... has started up again following the Christmas/New Year break and will see the removal of the overhead footway, multiple pedestrian controlled crossing points and a permanent speed limit of 30 mph! Still that is 25 mph faster than at present!!
The cones and barriers however, still remain firmly in place over the weekend and in the evenings (single lane working, multiple traffic lights) and reduced the journey through centre of town to a crawl. So simply whichever route you take, in and around Peterborough. expect long delays... Motorists give the City a miss this week...
LAMMA takes place whatever the weather, with our staff working extremely hard to bring you the biggest and best show, year upon year.
Not only is it free to attend we also provide free car parking on site for up to 10,000 cars, we encourage farmers to bring their employees and contractors.
LAMMA is a 'dry' show but there are plenty of catering outlets from which to purchase food, tea and coffee and other refreshments.
