THE Launceston City Council and Tasmania Police will work together to eliminate traffic congestion issues that have plagued Youngtown Oval over the past few Saturdays.
A crowd of 4000 is anticipated for the Northern Tasmanian Football Association's grand final clash between Rocherlea and Bridgenorth at the suburban ground.
With that, comes an influx of cars and a rush of people leaving the ground after 5pm, mostly leaving via Woolven Street.
An elderly Woolven Street resident said she was recently stuck in traffic for 45 minutes while metres from her home, unable to move as supporters left the ground due to there being only one available traffic lane after cars were parked on both sides of the road.
She said she was abused by fellow motorists and her inability to budge meant cars coming off Hobart Road were banked up behind her.
To ease congestion, the council will set up no parking signs on Medina, Talune, Highgate, Waroona and Woolven streets at the weekend.
Launceston acting inspector Craig Fox said police were aware of the traffic issues around the Youngtown Oval over the past few weeks and would be in the area to ensure responsible driving.
"We have rostered accordingly to ensure there is some passing attention not only to the venue but also the flow of traffic once the game is completed," he said.
"Perhaps people could alleviate the congestion by either car-pooling to the ground, utilising public transport or even parking further away and walking.
"Because it is a residential area, people should expect some traffic delays."
