Easter road traffic set to hit 2015 peak as major rail lines close
AA predicts particularly busy long weekend with around 15m people on roads as rail routes into London and Manchester are closed for engineering works
The closure of two major rail lines into London for engineering works is set to add to the traditional headaches of the Easter getaway, with motoring organisations predicting road traffic to hit a 2015 peak on Thursday afternoon.
Direct trains will not run between the capital and many northern cities for four days, with the west coast line into Euston shut, while most services west from Paddington will be rerouted or replaced due to works on Crossrail and Reading station.
