Press release

Over 550 miles of roadworks removed for Easter getaway

More than 550 miles of Highways Agency roadworks will be lifted over Easter to help bank holiday journeys go smoothly.

The Highways Agency – which from 1 April will become Highways England - aims to complete or lift 209 sets of roadworks by 2 April – leaving almost 97% of its 9,534-mile network free of roadworks in time for the holidays.

Highways Agency Director of Customer Operations, Simon Sheldon-Wilson, said:

This Easter, we’re helping drivers with their journeys by clearing roadworks across the majority of motorways and major A-roads in England.

By suspending or completing roadworks, more lanes will be open and many of the associated speed restrictions will be lifted.

We’ve worked closely with other transport providers to ensure our network can cope with increased demand due to closures on the railways, and we’re pleased to say that 96.8 per cent of our roads will be free of work to help Easter road trips go smoothly.

Of course, we still advise drivers to plan their journeys, check the latest traffic and travel updates, and the weather forecast, before setting out.

The Highways Agency will complete 371 miles of roadworks at 147 locations before the Easter holiday. A further 62 sets of roadworks and lane restrictions will be removed across 201 miles of carriageway by 6am on Thursday 2 April, until just after midnight on Tuesday 7 April.

For the safety of drivers and their passengers, lane restrictions or temporary speed limits will need to remain at 69 locations.

To give drivers as much information as possible to plan their trips, the Agency has also flagged potential holiday routes which could get busy between April 2 and April 7. Full list of Journey hotspots and peak traffic time data.

M6 J10A-13 (near Birmingham)

Upgrade to Smart Motorway - 20.9miles of roadworks - Moderate

Reason roadworks cannot be lifted for the Easter Bank Holiday: Between J11A-13, construction works are underway, existing comms / signals are interrupted and hazards are protected by temporary barrier restraint system which needs to remain in situ. Between J10A-11A, construction works are complete and the new technology system is commissioned. However, governance associated with safety products is in the process of being updated to reflect revised client requirements and hence, this section of controlled motorway cannot yet be made operationally live

M25/A13 between Wennington and A1086 (near Aveley, Thurrock)

The first phase of works to widen the A13 started on 27 February. Initial work involves site clearance, drainage and earthworks. There are narrow lanes in place along the A13 between Wennington and A1082 using a temporary barrier system with a 40mph speed limit in place to protect road users and the workforce (the speed limit is normally 50mph). We have maintained capacity with the same number of lanes available as when there is no traffic management. - 0miles of roadworks - Nil to slight

Reason roadworks cannot be lifted for the Easter Bank Holiday: There are narrow lanes in place, keeping the same number of lanes running. Overnight closures are lifted through the bank holiday, but it would take at least 4 nights to remove the narrow lanes and another 4 to get them back out after the bank holiday. This would not be cost effective, would cause delays to the programme and increase risk to road workers dealing with traffic management. It would also be a safety issue for road users where barrier has been removed behind the Varioguard narrow lanes. The narrow lanes and 40mph limit will remain in place through Easter.
