Most roadworks across the region's motorways and major routes have been put on hold for the Bank Holiday weekend.
The Highways Agency aimed to complete around 31 miles of roadworks by today and are suspending a further 24 miles in the South East, to help keep traffic moving.
Speaking to Heart, Mark Hallett, the operations manager at the Highways Agency said, "with the extra volumes of traffic on the road, there could be more congestion. Just by removing road works it will ease the flow of traffic and make people's journeys a lot easier."
