Plan ahead

Plan your holiday journeys in advance with the help of our interactive Holiday Journeys map and make travelling safer and more enjoyable for everyone.

Every holiday period and long weekend we see large numbers of people heading out of the main centres to popular holiday destinations and this can cause queues and delays.

To help alleviate these problems we recommend planning your travel well in advance and travelling outside the busiest periods. To make this easier for you we create an interactive map for holiday periods and long weekends. The map shows when we expect traffic to be heavy based on travel patterns from previous years.

The next Holiday Journeys map will be available for Queen's Birthday weekend 2021.

On the day

Because predicted peak times can change based on incidents, weather and even driver behaviour we suggest that you check our real-time Journey Planner before you leave for accurate information about current road and traffic conditions.
