Roadworks lifted to ease bank holiday traffic

Families heading to Royal Wedding celebrations or taking day trips over the coming bank holidays should have an easier journey as the Highways Agency completes or suspends more than half of roadworks on motorways and major A roads, leaving 99 per cent of their road network clear of works.

Timetable published for 14 vital road schemes

Work will start on vital improvements to the M62 in West Yorkshire, the M4/M5 around Bristol and on the A23 in West Sussex in the next 12 months - reducing congestion, improving safety and journey times, and providing a boost to the UK economy, Roads Minister Mike Penning announced today.

A further three schemes - on the M1 near Sheffield, M6 around Birmingham and A11 in Norfolk - will start in the financial year 2012-2013, the Roads Minister also confirmed today as he published the timetable for the 14 major road Highways Agency schemes due to start construction by 2015.
