Motorists can expect heavy traffic this weekend as Brits hit the roads for bank holiday getaways.

An RAC poll of drivers indicates that 14.8 million trips are planned to take place between Friday and Monday.

Motorists have been urged to expect delays in what is expected to be the busiest bank holiday in five years, with many people keen to take advantage of the easing in coronavirus restrictions.


With this in mind, Herefordshire drivers should be aware of road closures and roadworks which may affect their bank holiday plans.
