FTA warns drivers of ‘Black Friday’ jams

Motorways including M1, M4, M5, M25 & M50, are all set to bear the brunt of the getaway as drivers attempt to beat the Saturday morning holiday traffic queues. 

In total 14.4million vehicles are estimated to take to the country's main roads across the weekend.

Malcolm Bingham, FTA head of road network management policy, said: “Planning ahead of any journey is crucial for all drivers – particularly when so much traffic is expected on the roads. FTA encourages its members to use all the information available to avoid traffic jams as they attempt to make their routine journeys and deliveries.”

The FTA provides up-to-date traffic information via its app, and regularly updates its members of expected issues that will affect their drives.
