Mo­tor­ways cleared of festive road­works

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

MO­TORISTS pre­par­ing for the big Christ­mas get­away should not get stuck in road­works on mo­tor­ways.

Ear­lier this week, High­ways Eng­land said that al­most 400 miles of road­works across Eng­land will be lifted and com­pleted in De­cem­ber, leav­ing al­most 99% of mo­tor­ways and strate­gic A roads road­works­free in time for Christ­mas.

All road­works will be lifted or com­pleted by 6am to­mor­row un­til mid­night on Mon­day, Jan­uary 2. This has in­cluded work on the M4 by Junc­tion 11, which fin­ished early.

Na­tional Ex­press has praised High­ways Eng­land for its role in help­ing peo­ple get to their des­ti­na­tion on time.

Chris Hardy, Na­tional Ex­press Coach Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, said: “It’s great that they’ve lifted road works dur­ing a busy time for travel, help­ing us to make sure we can get pas­sen­gers where they want to be for Christ­mas.”
