Highways Agency helps road users by lifting roadworks over Christmas and New Year

17 December 2012 15:22

Highways Agency

Road users travelling during Christmas and the New Year will benefit from 99 per cent of England’s strategic road network being free of roadworks.

To see a content-rich version of this news release, click here.

The Highways Agency will be clearing more than nine out of ten sets of its roadworks for the holiday period, with plans in place to complete more than 250 miles of roadworks on England’s motorways and major A roads by the end of this week. A further 57 miles will be suspended between 21 December 2012 and 2 January 2013.

Roads Minister Stephen Hammond said:

“Over the Christmas and New Year holiday virtually the whole of England’s network of motorways and major A roads will be free of road works. This means more lanes will be open and many speed restrictions will be lifted, helping everyone to travel more freely.”

In all, 164 sets of roadworks are due to be completed on the Highways Agency’s roads ahead of the Christmas and New Year holiday. A further 21 sets of roadworks and lane restrictions are due to be removed by 06:00 on Friday 21 December and will not be put back before 00:01 on Wednesday 2 January. Lane restrictions or temporary speed limits will need to remain in place at 19 locations for the safety of drivers and their passengers.

Highways Agency traffic officers will be patrolling the motorways and winter teams are on standby to treat the roads if the forecast includes ice or snow.

The Highways Agency provides information services to help people check traffic conditions for the motorways and other strategic roads. Live traffic information is available through its website, local and national radio travel bulletins, electronic road signs and mobile platforms, such as the iPhone. There is specific advice on driving in winter on the ‘Make Time for Winter’ pages at www.highways.gov.uk/winter.

The Agency is urging drivers to take a few minutes to check their vehicles, plan their route and check the weather forecast before setting out. A routine incident or breakdown can become much more serious in severe weather, and broken down vehicles make it harder for road salting vehicles and snow ploughs to operate, causing delays for everyone else.

Two Twitter channels – @winterhighways and @HA_Christmas – will help drivers prepare for winter journeys, with timely reminders and traffic updates. There are also regional feeds for live traffic information, available at www.highways.gov.uk/twitter and more information on Facebook at www.facebook.com/winterhighways.

Road users can also call the Highways Agency Information Line (0300 123 5000) to keep up to date with road conditions.



Notes to Editors



1. The Highways Agency is an executive agency of the Department for Transport. We manage, maintain and improve England’s motorways and other strategic roads on behalf of the Secretary of State.

2. Full lists of roadworks completed, lifted and remaining in place over the Christmas and New Year period are appended below.

To see these on a map click the following links:

Roadworks lifted and completed
Roadworks remaining in place

3. Maintenance and improvement projects: We plan maintenance and improvement projects carefully to allow road works to be completed safely, in a cost effective way while keeping disruption to road users to a minimum. We do as much work as possible overnight and when roads are less busy in order to keep more lanes open for road users at peak travel times. Drivers are advised to check their route for road works and allow extra time for their journeys where needed. We have a variety of journey planning tools that road users can use to check travel conditions on the roads we manage, and we will do all we can to keep road users informed.

4. Safety at roadworks: The Highways Agency is working with the industry and road users to reduce the risks of working on the roads. For the safety of road workers and all road users, when you are approaching roadworks:

  • Keep within the speed limit – it is there for your safety.
  • Get into the correct lane in good time – don’t keep switching.
  • Concentrate on the road ahead, not the roadworks.
  • Be alert for works’ traffic leaving or entering roadworks.
  • Keep a safe distance – there could be queues in front.
  • Observe all signs – they are there to help you.

5. Real-time traffic information for England’s motorways and other strategic roads is available:

  • From the web at www.highways.gov.uk/traffic
  • By phone from the Highways Agency Information Line on 0300 123 5000 at any time. (Calls to 0300 numbers will cost no more than 5p per minute from a standard BT residential landline. Call charges from other landlines and mobile networks may vary, but will be no more than a standard geographic call and will be included in all inclusive minutes and discount schemes). Make sure it’s safe and legal before you call. Before using any mobile, find a safe place to park. Never stop on the hard shoulder of a motorway except in an emergency.
  • On an iPhone app which will automatically select the region you are in. Free to download from the iTunes store or search for Highways Agency on your device.
  • From Twitter – there are eight regional feeds with live traffic information. For the full index visit www.highways.gov.uk/twitter.
