Road traffic officers and control room staff who are members of the Public and Commercial Services union (PCS) are set to strike for two days.
National Highways in South West England and the West Midlands will walk out on Friday, whilst other National Highways workers will strike on 3 and 4 January 2023.
Motorway signs which warn motorists of accidents, lane closures amongst other things will be impacted and for collisions there will be a reduced response time which will lead to a delay in re-opening motorways and roads.
Things are about to get serious in 2023

PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka said, “Previous strikes elsewhere in England have caused disruption for people travelling over the Christmas period, and this strike is likely to do the same.
“While we regret people’s travel plans will be affected, we make it very clear this strike could be called off today if the Prime Minister or Chancellor put money on the table.”
