These delays are likely to be grater at peak times (i.e. Fridays, Saturdays and Bank Holiday weekends). If at all possible we would advise visitors to consider travelling outside the most congested times which are 0900 – 1800 by either making an early start to their journey or delaying it until later in the day.
