Are you one of the four million Brits taking to the road this Christmas? Then you’ll need to be prepared for delays as the holiday getaway clogs motorways and A-roads causing nightmare journeys during the festive season.
Stay one step ahead of the queues with CDG’s guide to the worst hit traffic areas and the time delays that could set you back if you’re planning a big journey. Plan for the Christmas traffic delays and you could save yourself extra stress and still make it home in time for Christmas.
Figures from Abta estimate that the four million people will be travelling between now and January 3rd, so delays are likely on major roads during this period.
If you’re heading for festive family fun then check out the delays to journeys as predicted by traffic information company Inrix; they’ve mapped out the worst road offenders for clogging Christmas congestion and estimated the extra time you will need to add to your journey.
Inrix is forecasting that Tuesday, December 23rd and Saturday, December 27th will be the busiest days on UK roads. As usual, most traffic works on major routes will be suspended, but some will be left in place for safety reasons.
