Although UK Traffic News is our central traffic news website we appreciated that larger websites can be more time consuming to navigate.

Plus on larger traffic websites you see lots of traffic news for roads and regions you may not interested in…

For this reason we are launching a series of dedicated regional or motorway specific websites.

M25 Traffic

One of the examples of our motorway specific websites in www.M25Traffic.co.uk for regular M25 motorway users.

The M25 is one of the busiest motorways in the world so being able to check quickly for current traffic incidents, roadworks and traffic delays helps try and avoid delays on your journey.

M25 Traffic.co.uk is dedicated to the M25 motorway with news of the latest traffic incidents and M25 delays.

So weather you are a commuter, haulage company or other regular M25 user check out the latest traffic news for the M25 at M25Traffic.co.uk.

In the last week we have also added the 3day weather forecast for the London area to M25 Traffic as weather can affect traffic conditions knowing the weather forecast for the next three days helps.
