Return to work travel

People are being urged to plan their return to work travel, with the trunk roads and other transport networks in Scotland expected to be busy over the next few days.

Our operating companies stand ready to react to any change in conditions and assist motorists where required. The Traffic Scotland team will monitor the trunk road network from the National Control Centre in South Queensferry, sending out the most up to date information to drivers.

Stein Connelly from Transport Scotland said:

“The trunk roads across Scotland are likely to busy over the next few days, with people heading home after the festive season and returning to work at the start of next week.

“As always, we’d ask you to plan your journey to help you get to your destination on time. This may mean you need to leave a bit of extra time, or you might have to follow specific Police Scotland travel advice and drive to the conditions if there is adverse weather.

"The Traffic Scotland mobile site – – is the best source for up-to-date information on the trunk roads and the Traffic Scotland Twitter page also has regular updates. “If you are planning to use rail, ferry or air travel, you should check with your operator before you set off – many of them have their own websites with the latest service information to help passengers plan their journeys ahead of time."
