Are you planning to travel to your holiday destination by car this Easter? Prior knowledge of road conditions is a major advantage, especially if you're mindful of where you can expect delays at roadworks. See below...   

To aid motorists in effectively planning their journey, the AA provides a useful tool to check current road conditions on metropolitan, national and provincial roads. The AA’s Road Conditions Report is updated weekly and includes information regarding roadworks, which means you can plan your route to avoid unnecessary delays.
