Car insurance holders worried about endless traffic jams this bank holiday weekend have been given a boost after the Highways Agency announced it is to suspend roadworks on many major roads. In addition, the body is to provide live traffic information to road users, with Friday evening and Saturday lunchtime predicted to be the busiest periods. The agency states that more than 228 miles of road improvement works will be suspended on motorways and major A roads. Motor insurance holders can access up-to-the-minute travel information from the body's website as well as on local radio stations and on mobile platforms such as the iPhone. Roads Minister Mike Penning said that the move will ease congestion and help people enjoy their extended break.
"To help road users with their journeys, the Highways Agency will remove as many sets of roadworks as it is safe and practical to do so," he stated.News source: news.swiftcover.com
