Traffic set to blight major routes

A traffic information firm has warned congestion on Britain's major routes is set to increase in the next few days as thousands of holidaymakers jet off on their summer breaks.

The group said some two million travellers are bound for foreign destinations this weekend, which also spells the end of the school year.

As a result, roads bound for the south west of England are expected to be really busy on Friday while routes leading to the main airports and the coast, as well as cross-Channel ports, will also be affected by jams, according to Trafficmaster.

It is thought drivers on the A303 through Hampshire, Wiltshire and Somerset will encounter the worst congestion, as will road users on the M6 through Staffordshire and Cheshire into Lancashire. Spending long hours on the road and in traffic can increase the risk of a mechanical breakdown, so motorists are advised to be prepared should an incident occur.

Trafficmaster said major routes should be less busy next week, although it predicts roads within Greater London will become more congested as the country gears up for the 2012 Games.
