If you were hoping for a quick journey home on the final evening of the week, then sadly you thought wrong.

There is plenty of trouble ahead on the roads for you to try and avoid but here's a heads-up of what to expect.


Due to an earlier crash between j8-9 on the M1 northbound, traffic is queueing from j5 for Watford with 45 minute delays.

As a result the A5183 from St Albans to Redbourn is very busy as is Hemel Hempstead Road towards St Albans. All lanes have reopened on the M1.

On the M25, delays in patches clockwise from j20 for the A41 all the way round to j26 for Waltham Abbey. It is very slow between j22 and j23 and at j25.

On local routes, travel time will be close to half an hour between the Park Street roundabout and and the London Colney roundabout due to to problems on the M25 and the roadworks in London Colney


Delays on the North Circular towards Arnos Grove from Colney Hatch Lane.

Very busy on the A12 because of an incident near the North Circular. Traffic is slow all the way back to Hackney Wick but clears in places.
