Commuters are facing queues due to extra traffic on the roads for the West Ham v Liverpool FA Cup match up this evening at Upton Park.

Cars are slow moving southbound on the A406 North Circular Road around the Barking flyover. There is added congestion northbound to Beckton Roundabout and southbound to Redbridge.

Roads around the Boleyn Ground, including Central Park Road, are also facing traffic queues. The exit slip road on to the B167 from the A124 is currently held up. Again this is due to attendance at the match, due to kick off at 7.45pm.
