M25 to Shut During Wimbledon: RAC Issues Advisory

The RAC has issued a statement regarding the upcoming closures on the M25, set to coincide with the Wimbledon finals. Alice Simpson, RAC Breakdown spokesperson, emphasized the importance of planning ahead to avoid congestion.

Simpson commented, “With most drivers following the official advice, major congestion was averted during previous M25 closures and there’s no reason why the same can’t happen this time. Drivers should follow the signed diversion routes which have been designed to keep traffic flowing as much as possible.”

She added, “It’s worth remembering that the closure coincides with the finals at Wimbledon, so anyone planning on driving to this event should anticipate a far longer journey or look at whether there’s a viable public transport alternative.”

The RAC also stressed the importance of vehicle preparation. Simpson advised, “For anyone who needs to drive – whether that’s to an event or one of the London airports – it’s really important to check your vehicle is ready for a longer trip. Breakdowns can quickly lead to traffic queues, and it’s often the case that roadside patrols, including our own, end up sitting in jams trying to reach people. Ensuring oil and coolant levels are where they need to be, and checking tyres are in good condition and properly inflated, can dramatically reduce the prospect of breaking down in the first place.”

For those planning to travel, the RAC recommends checking for the latest updates on diversion routes and considering public transport options to avoid delays.
