It is finally the weekend, time to get out with the family and enjoy some free time.

Certainly not a time to be sitting in a traffic jam with the kids shouting in the back "Are we there yet?"

Over the weekend, sporting events and roadworks are forcing some roads to close, so check before you head out and do not let the traffic spoil your weekend.
