Sussex bank holiday congestion and travel details

DRIVERS are warned to avoid travel as major traffic jams are expected ahead of the bank holiday weekend.

The south east could be a hotspot for congestion as people flee for the long weekend flock to the area, the RAC said.

It is estimated that 12.5 million leisure trips will be made in the UK by Monday, with traffic jams likely between 2pm and 7pm in Sussex today.

“The South East and South West of England look like they could take the brunt of the traffic, with the message to drivers traveling through these regions being clear – get out early or be prepared to be stuck in traffic sit,” said RAC spokesman Rod Dennis.

“The streets of Britain are just as hectic this summer as they were a year ago.

“We expect there will still be heavy traffic on the roads this Bank Holiday weekend, particularly towards the main holiday destinations, and people are keen to spend some time before the new school years start in England and Wales.”

Mr Dennis also advised people to ensure their cars are “roadworthy” with a simple check that includes tire pressure and oil level.

Disruptions were expected on the railways as engineering works affected Thameslink services between Bedford and Brighton until this morning.

Buses were due to replace trains between Three Bridges and Brighton by 5.15am today.

According to Network Rail, £90m worth of upgrades will be made, although 95% of routes will remain open.

A reduced timetable applies between Northampton, Milton Keynes and London Euston from Saturday to Monday due to HS2 work.

There are no trains to London’s Charing Cross or Cannon Street stations on Saturdays and Sundays, with a limited service both days from Hastings and Tonbridge to London Bridge.

The weather will be mild with highs of 23°C expected on Sunday and will remain cloudy with sunny intervals throughout the weekend but little chance of rain.

Water quality on Sussex beaches will also be poor as today’s torrential rain could cause further storm spills into the sea.
