Impact on Transportation and Travel 

Navigating New Year Roadworks with hirefleet Van Rental Yorkshire

The upcoming roadworks in Yorkshire and the North-East, as outlined by National Highways, will significantly impact transportation and travel. Understanding these disruptions is key for anyone considering their road travel in the new year, or planning van rental Yorkshire, during this period. 

1. M62 Bridge Parapet Replacement

On the M62, major maintenance work between junctions 24 and 25 involves replacing life-expired parapets. With planned overnight lane and hard shoulder closures, it's crucial for those planning travel in the new year, in addition to anyone considering utilising self-drive van hire Yorkshire services to plan ahead, particularly if travelling during the holiday season.

2. A696 Emergency Westbound Patching

Urgent repairs on the A696, particularly affecting the route towards Newcastle International Airport, will see night-time road closures. This could impact those using van rental Yorkshire services to reach the airport, such as 7 seater van hire, or 9 seater van hire, with diversions through Woolsington clearly signed.

3. A1033 Snagging Work

The A1033 from Salt End to Somerden, following recent resurfacing, requires short-term snagging work. Overnight road closures are planned, so those planning travel should stay informed about the best alternative routes during these times.

Tips for Navigating Roadworks Safely When Considering Van Rental Yorkshire

When you're planning travel in the new year, or considering a self-drive van hire, Yorkshire, it's essential to navigate roadworks safely and efficiently. Roadworks can be challenging, but with the right approach and mindset, you can ensure a smooth journey.

1. Plan Your Journey

Before setting off in your van rental, or just planning a road trip in the new year, it's wise to plan your route. Check traffic and travel information online to avoid roadworks where possible. Highways England provides real-time updates, and local or national radio stations often broadcast traffic bulletins. A well-planned route can save you time and hassle.

2. Use Technology Wisely

If your van has a sat nav with traffic monitoring, use it to your advantage. It can guide you around bottlenecks caused by roadworks. However, it's crucial to keep your focus on the road and not get distracted by electronic devices, including mobile phones. Lock them away if needed to maintain concentration.

3. Heed Road Signs and Traffic Management

Keep an eye out for road signs indicating the distance to roadworks or providing specific instructions. As you approach the works, be aware of traffic management features like narrow lanes and traffic cones. This information is crucial for safe navigation through the roadworks.

4. Maintain a Safe Distance

When driving through roadworks, keep a safe following distance from other vehicles. Roadworks often involve slow-moving construction vehicles, staying alert and keeping well back is vital for safety.

5. Watch Your Speed

Roadworks on major routes often employ average speed cameras. Resist the urge to speed, even between cameras. Maintaining a consistent, safe speed in your self-drive van hire Yorkshire is crucial for your safety and that of the workers.

6. Stay Alert and Hydrated

Especially during long journeys or in hot weather, (not that you will need to worry about that over the new year), ensure you stay hydrated. Delays caused by roadworks can be tiring, so having a bottle of water in your car or van rental is a good idea to stay alert.
