HEAVY traffic is reported on the A3102 Great Western Way, Swindon, into town at Blagrove Roundabout.

Traffic is also busy but moving on the A4 High Street in Marlborough.

The A4 London Road in Box is partially blocked with slow traffic at the Bargates junction, because of an accident involving three vehicles.

In Gloucestershire very slow traffic is reported on the A417 from Birdlip to Air Balloon Roundabout.

Meanwhile the high winds have dropped although a westerly wind of up to 18mph has been forecast by the MetOffice. 

Those thinking of making long journeys this weekend are asked to check the weather forecast on the day of their trip for the most accurate predictions.

Mark Spowage, an AA spokesman, said: “Despite a rather unsettled forecast, we expect a lot of people to get away this Easter, as it falls quite early this year.

“There will be a lot of pressure on the main getaway routes, particularly in the south west.

"Do the essential checks on your car before heading off, paying particular attention to the tyres and adjusting the pressures for a heavy load, if required.”
