UK August bank holiday traffic warning as weather improves

UK August bank holiday traffic warning as weather improves

The August bank holiday traffic in the United Kingdom is expected to be at its busiest on Friday, with five million leisure trips planned. Click here to read the full story.

New research, conducted by the RAC and Inrix, says that Friday and Saturday are expected to be the busiest days, with a combined 9.4m trips on across the two days, followed by bank holiday Monday itself with around 3.7m separate leisure journeys.

However, given the weather looks set to be good over the bank holiday weekend, the reality is there may be even more trips taken.

Transportation analytics specialists Inrix indicates some of the worst major roads for delays will include the M25 anticlockwise (between J1 and J4) and the M6 north (between J18 and J24) on Friday, and the M6 south (between J27 and J13) on Monday, with delays of up to an hour on each of these stretches.

To help ease the congestion, Highways England announced that it will remove more than 480 miles of roadworks on motorways and major A-roads over the August bank holiday.

The roadworks will be lifted by Friday (August 23) meaning around 97% of England’s motorway and major A-roads, the strategic road network, will be free from roadworks.
