Highways England is bringing some Christmas cheer to motorists after announcing plans to complete or lift 448 miles of roadworks, leaving 98% of its network free from roadworks for the Christmas period.
The Government body is completing 407 and suspending 41miles of roadworks by 6am on Friday December 23 until Tuesday January 3 to prevent as little disruption as possible.
Key schemes to be completed include:
•£191 million improvement scheme at Catthorpe junction 19 of the M1
•Work to upgrade 5.4 miles of the M1 between junction 34 for Meadowhall and Rotherham
•Junction 35a for the A616 Stocksbridge bypass in Sheffield
•Chain Bar junction where the M62 meets the M606
•M25 junction upgrade where the motorway meets the A13 in Essex, by Lakeside shopping centre

Highways England operations director, Nick Harris said: ‘This Christmas bank holiday, we’re helping drivers with their journeys by clearing roadworks on most of our motorways and major A-roads.
‘Our traffic officers will also be on patrol working to clear any incidents; the vast majority of which will be dealt with in under an hour.
‘We’re asking people to be prepared before setting off. Make sure you have everything you need for your journey should there be any delays, check before and during your journey and also make sure you’re aware of the signs and signals on motorways.
‘By suspending or completing roadworks, more lanes will be open and many speed restrictions will be lifted.’Drivers planning to use the Dartford Crossing are reminded to pay Dart Charge in advance or by midnight the day after crossing.
