Travel journalist Simon Calder, who was broadcasting from Heathrow Airport, updated GB News viewers on the number of flights which have been cancelled over the Easter weekend as well as the hundreds of engineering works taking place on train tracks. Millions of travellers have been warned to brace themselves for severe delays at airports and “extremely busy” roads. Presenter Anne Diamond fumed over the situation and asked if it could have been avoided.
After listening to the number of works taking place over the bank holiday weekend, Anne fumed: “This is crazy, isn’t it?
“I know that some of it may be unavoidable but surely with better planning, they knew Easter was going to happen at this time of year, I mean why couldn’t this be avoided?”
Simon replied: “A very good question, well actually in 2016, Network Rail did a proper investigation and concluded a public holiday is the time to do it because you have fewer commuters, then Covid happened and now we are in the position where leisure travel at weekends, and particularly over holidays, is vastly higher in some cases than just normal commuting.”
