National Highways lift roadworks across motorway network as the nation prepares to say farewell to Her Majesty the Queen.
Planned closures of major routes in and out of London have been postponed to reduce congestion as large numbers of people travel to the capital
for ceremonial and commemorative events to mark the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
All closures for roadworks on motorways in and out of London have been paused from the start of this week until after the State Funeral tomorrow (Monday 19 September). This includes on motorways such as the M25, M11, M3, M4, and M23.
John McNeill, National Highways, Head of Service delivery, East of
"We expect the roads to be busy with people looking to travel into the
capital and to other royal residences over the weekend. Our traffic
officer patrols will be out on the network to help anyone who might get
into difficulty, but it's important people remember to check their
vehicle before setting off.
"The last thing anybody wants on the way to their destination is to have
a vehicle breakdown. That's why it's really important that people spend
a few minutes checking the condition of their tyres before setting off."
