Hol roads to be ‘car­maged­don’

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.”
