Major North East Roadworks Halted Over Bank Holiday

19 May 2015, 07:02

Some major roadworks are being delayed next week just in case a strike by RMT Union members working for Network Rail puts too much pressure on the roads.

Dozens of planned roadworks in England are going to be suspended for two extra days,  just in case next week's rail strike puts too much pressure on the roads.

Some Network Rail staff which run the tracks and the signals, are planning to walk out from Monday night.
