Parking Issues Saturday January 4th !

In the Leicester Mercury City highways director Martin Fletcher is quoted: “With the Tigers and Leicester City both playing at home, and with the January sales in full swing, we’re expecting high volumes of traffic on the road network and high demand for parking spaces.

“My advice would be to plan ahead and allow extra time to get to your destination – whether that’s Welford Road, the King Power stadium or the city centre shops.”

While the Park and Ride services from Birstall, Enderby and Meynells Gorse are available for Tigers fans, they run between 7am and 7pm on Saturday, therefore are not an option for City fans, therefore the Foxes Trust recently launched Lift Share scheme could be a solution.

So could you give a fellow City fan a lift or would you like a lift to the game ?
