Plan ahead for your holiday journeys

Use our holiday journey planner to check traffic predictions before you leave.

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’ve created an interactive traffic prediction map for holiday periods. The map shows when we expect traffic to be heavy based on travel patterns from previous years.

The next map will be available for the Christmas and New Year period.

On the day of travel

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 the latest information on road works, traffic, road closures and delays.
