Check for roadworks and closures

Roadworks Christmas embargo

Each year we pause roadworks around Christmas. This allows us to restrict planned roadworks so traffic can flow more easily, especially around key shopping areas. This year the embargo runs from Monday 5 December 2022 to Sunday 8 January 2023.

Each application for a permit to undertake roadworks during this period will be assessed to consider its potential impact on the highway network.

The embargo does not prevent emergency roadworks.

Planned works will not appear on the map until they've started.
