Ahead of the Easter weekend, the Highways Agency has decided to suspend a majority of its roadworks. This means 98% of England’s motorways and major A roads will be roadwork free to enable clearer journeys over the bank holiday.
No doubt this news will be music to motorists’ ears as many have their fingers crossed for undisrupted travel.
Seven out of 10 roadworks will be cleared by the Easter weekend – a period referred to a busy or peak time for cars on the country’s roads. With more vehicles, however, there is the potential for more accidents.
Vision Managing Director, Martin Wills, says: “The Highways Agency’s decision to pause many of its roadworks will certainly aid the flow of traffic. However, drivers should still be aware that they could face disruption owing to traffic accidents as there is always a heightened risk of collisions owing to increased traffic during public holidays. We often see a rise in non-fault accidents at Easter.”
A non-fault accident is when someone is involved in a road traffic incident that was not their fault but was caused by another driver.
