Hundreds of miles of roadworks will be lifted on major roads across the region during the Easter holidays.

Highways England has announced that it aims to complete or lift 208 sets of roadworks by 6am on Thursday 24 March.

The suspension will leave more than 97 per cent of the organisation’s 9,534-mile network free of roadworks in time for the holidays.

In Yorkshire and the North East, 12 sets of roadworks will be lifted and 22 sets will be completed, while eight sets remain during the bank holiday weekend.

Mel Clarke, Highways England director of customer operations, said: “This Easter, we’re helping drivers with their journeys by clearing roadworks across the majority of motorways and major A-roads in England.

“We’ve worked closely with other transport providers to ensure our network can cope with increased demand, and we’re pleased to say that 97.2 per cent of our roads will be free of work to help Easter road trips go smoothly.

Highways England will complete 257 miles of roadworks at 133 locations before the Easter holiday.

A further 75 sets of roadworks and lane restrictions will be suspended across 219 miles of carriageway by 6am on Thursday 24 March, until just after midnight on Tuesday 29 March.

For the safety of drivers and their passengers, lane restrictions or temporary speed limits will need to remain at major schemes with large excavation areas or major structural projects which require on-going traffic management for safety.

Motorists are still being urged to plan journeys ahead and check vehicles and fuel levels before setting off.
