Surrey bank holiday traffic updates as disruption expected

There is slow traffic on the main A30 London Road as people travel back from their bank holiday trips away.

Two lanes have also closed and there’s queuing due to an accident involving a car and lorry on the M3 Northbound from J3 A322 (Lightwater/ Bagshot) to J2 (M25 Interchange).

Lanes one and two of four are closed.

Traffic and travel website Inrix updated a post at 1.28pm, reporting slow traffic on the A30 London Road around Virginia Water lake.

It’s the first bank holiday weekend since the Government went ahead with the third step of its roadmap out of lockdown on May 17.

This means more people will be able to travel to meet up with family and friends during the three-day weekend.

The update reads: “A30 London Road – Virginia Water – both directions.

“Slow traffic due to holiday traffic on A30 London Road in both directions around Virginia Water lake.

“Affecting traffic between Egham and Sunningdale.”

Lorry involved in three-vehicle crash on M3 this lunchtime

A lorry was involved in a three-vehicle crash on the M3 that closed two lanes this lunchtime.

The articulated lorry was in a collision with a Peugeot and a Toyota between junctions 8 and 7 just after 1pm today (Tuesday), police have confirmed.

A woman received minor injuries, but was treated by paramedics at the scene.

The two closed lanes have since reopened, according to traffic service ROMANSE, although delays remain.
