Thousands of people are expected to leave London in the next 24 hours to get away for the long Easter weekend.
But if you're heading West by train, you'll be faced with disruption and longer journeys.
That's because a new station is being built at Reading. Network Rail says passengers will see the benefit of the 900-million pound project, but bosses admit that things won't be running smoothly this weekend.Here's Mike Pearse.
Stansted airport is expecting more than 220,000 passengers through the terminal over the Easter weekend.
"To help cope with the increase in passengers, we will have more staff on duty across the Easter holidays to help passengers through the airport safely and securely and get their holidays off to a flying start. It's also vital that passengers prepare correctly before setting off for the airport as we want them to get it right and avoid unnecessary delays."
– Neil Banks, Stansted's Terminal Manager
This is some of the advice from Stansted:
Check your flight status with your airline's website before you leave home
Pack liquids, gels and pastes in hand luggage into a clear re-sealable plastic bag
Check the latest security information on the airport website
Arrive at the airport two hours before your flight's departure time
Around 600,000 passengers are expected to leave from Heathrow airport, 214,000 from Gatwick, 110,000 from Stansted and 55,000 from Luton this weekend, as cold Britons jet out for some sunny relief to the extended winter weather.

Journeys will be affected by the major building work at Reading while some travellers could be held up by work on the West Coast Main Line in the West Midlands. A strike at French ports has been called off though.
The Highways Agency has suspended road works over Easter on a number motorways and major roads but works remain on the M1 near Milton Keynes.
