Highways Agency "sorry" for M180 delays

The Highways Agency says it is looking at how to reduce the traffic problems caused by roadworks on the M180.

I am very sorry for the long delays experienced over the last two days. My team are revising the schedule to allow us to accelerate the construction work, which will enable us to open one lane of the eastbound M180 by 6am tomorrow morning.

I acknowledge that these closures have been very disruptive to drivers and residents and that the routes around the closure have been heavily congested. To help alleviate the congestion we have agreed with Humber Bridge Authority to suspend the tolls for the next 24 hours to smooth the flow of traffic along the A63 and the bridge and provide a non-tolled alternative to the east coast for drivers avoiding the M180.

– Chris Holehouse, Highways Agency
