Highways England will lift and complete hundreds of miles of roadworks as more than 14 million cars take to UK roads over the August bank holiday weekend.

Friday and Saturday are likely to be the busiest days on the road for leisure ‘getaway’ trips as RAC research shows 3.6m cars are expected to be making journeys on both days. Thursday is estimated to be the next busiest with 3.2m cars, followed by the bank holiday Monday with 2.4m.

With the extra day of the bank holiday weekend, Sunday is forecast to be quieter with only 1.6m leisure trips being made although some delays can still be expected.

To help those miles flow as smoothly as possible, teams from Highways England are working to remove more than 300 miles of roadworks – meaning more than 97% of motorways and major A roads will be roadworks-free for the last weekend of the month.
