Live: Harrogate district traffic and travel
Last updated Oct 7, 2021

Good morning it’s Suzannah back with you today. I’m here to give you all the road and rail updates you need this morning.

There are a few road closures and temporary lights in place across the district, make sure you check our lists in case you need to leave a few minutes earlier.

Give me a call on 01423 276197 or get in touch on social media if you spot anything on the roads or are waiting for a delayed bus or train.

The morning blogs are brought to you by The HACS Group.
