Roadworks lifted to ease Easter traffic

Roadworks lifted to ease Easter traffic

Hundreds of miles of roadworks will be lifted or completed in time for Easter, Highways England has announced.

It says that 459 miles of roadworks - meaning around 99% of motorways and major A roads – will be roadworks-free.

Highways England’s customer service director, Melanie Clarke, said: “We’re doing everything we can to make journeys as smooth as possible this Easter and that’s why we’re keeping around 99% of the road network we manage, free from roadworks.”

The motorway and major A-road network will be free of roadworks from 6am Thursday, April 18, until 12.01am on Tuesday, April 23.

    Amazing. Long list of roadworks. But no mention of the 10 plus mile dangerous stretches of motorway 50mph zones with narrow lanes that are everywhere. And the irony, that the roadworks are lifted for the holiday season, but the rail network closes down for the same reason. The government increases the cost of car ownership, whilst simultaneously making us more reliant on the car for rail shut down periods.
