MOTORISTS and bus users are advised to expect delays to their journeys tomorrow evening (Thursday 17 February), ahead of Leicester City’s Europa Conference League tie against Randers FC of the Danish Superliga.

A multi-agency policing operation will ensure that visiting fans can get to the King Power stadium safely, with a series of rolling road closures in place from 6pm tomorrow to allow the 600 Randers’ fans to make their way to the stadium on foot.

Roads along the route will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so.

City Highways Director Martin Fletcher said: “We’ll be supporting the policing operation tomorrow and we’re advising people to allow extra time for their journey.

“Whether you’re on your way home from work, or you’re on your way to the match, please expect some disruption to your journey and set off in good time.

“Belvoir Street will be closed from 6pm for around half an hour, and we’re expecting the effects of the rolling road closures to have particular impact on the inner ring road around Southgates underpass and its slip roads from about 6.30pm-6.45pm, with delays likely around the Swan Bridge area at about 7pm.

“My advice would be to avoid these areas at these times if you are able to.”

Leicester City’s Europa Conference League match again Randers FC kicks off at 8pm tomorrow (Thursday).
