Hol roads to be ‘carmageddon’
DRIVERS will face “carmageddon” this weekend with the worst bank holiday congestion on UK roads for years, experts warned.
Transport information supplier Inrix said some stretches of road could have twice as many vehicles between Friday and Monday compared with a normal weekend.
Hotspots to avoid including sections of the M25, M5, M27 and M6.
The combination of rail engineering work and a forecast of warm weather is expected to boost the number of journeys over the popular getaway weekend.
Inrix traffic analyst Greg Hallsworth said: “This bank holiday could see the worst congestion in recent years. A perfect storm of conditions will lead to increased traffic as carmageddon blights the long weekend.”
