RAC predicts Easter traffic hotspots

Published 24 March 2016

The Royal Automobile Club (RAC) has named 11 roads where it expects traffic problems over Easter weekend. The list includes common traffic blackspots, like the M25 from Gatwick to the M1 and the A14 towards the Norfolk and the east coast.

Simon Williams said: “The usual main road arteries will inevitably suffer the consequences of so many people trying to getaway for the double bank holiday weekend by car. The advice has to be to head off as early as possible to beat other travellers and to expect heavy traffic and jams on major routes.”

The main predicted blackspots are below.

  • M5 from Bristol to Taunton
  • A303 Stonehenge
  • A30 and A38 Exeter to Cornwall
  • M4 between Cardiff and Swansea
  • M25 between Gatwick and M1
  • A23/M23 to Brighton
  • A11 Norwich to Great Yarmouth
  • M55 between Preston and Blackpool
  • A14 between Midlands and East Coast
  • A66 between M6 and the coast
  • M53 between Liverpool and Chester
