RAC predicts Good Friday peak for Easter holiday traffic

RAC predicts Good Friday peak for Easter holiday traffic

A study of drivers’ plans conducted by the RAC indicates that the Easter weekend will see 19 million leisure trips by car, with Good Friday accounting for 4.45m individual journeys.

Maundy Thursday (March 29) and this coming Saturday (March 31) are each expected to see 3.18m individual trips.

Thursday is likely to see the largest overall number of vehicles on the road, as cars carrying families and friends vie for space with commuter traffic. In total, between this Thursday and Easter Monday, the RAC predicts some 18.76m separate leisure journeys by car.

Highways England says it is working around the clock to remove 300 miles of roadworks - meaning 99% of motorways and major A roads will be roadworks-free in time for Easter.

The Met Office is reporting that snow showers over some higher ground are possible from Wednesday onwards with much colder air knocking on the door of the UK by the end of the week. Almost everywhere will see a combination of rain and strong winds, making driving conditions less than ideal. The RAC is therefore advising motorists check their car is ready to avoid an unnecessary breakdown.

Whatever your travel plans this bank holiday weekend, if you plan to rent a car and brave the traffic visit www.greenmotion.com to make sure your Easter road trip gets off to a great start.
