Roadworks lifted for Bank Holiday

Almost half of all major roadworks on England's motorways and major A roads will be completed or suspended for the Bank Holiday weekend.

Seventeen sets of roadworks will be completed and a further 18 will be suspended between 6am on Friday 23 May and midnight on Monday 26 May.

However, roadworks at another 44 locations will remain in place.

"The Highways Agency is doing everything it can to help drivers with their bank holiday journeys," said roads minister Tom Harris. "The roads will be busy, so I urge drivers to plan their journeys using travel information available on websites and radio bulletins."

Drivers will notice blue signs on the hard shoulder of many motorways, which help drivers to identify where they are if they need to call for help on the motorway.

Over 6,000 of the signs have been installed across the motorway network.

Over 2,500 electronic message signs will give drivers information about road conditions.

A number of these now display messages that tell drivers how long it will take them to get to the next junction.
