MOTORWAY CLOSURE M1 Junction 23A - Junction 24 CLOSURE

Posted: Tue, 01 May 2018 13:25 by Deputy Clerk

MOTORWAY CLOSURE  M1  Junction 23A  -  Junction 24  CLOSURE

FRIDAY 11TH (2200 hours southbound and midnight Northbound) to SUNDAY 13th May (1500h) J23A - J24 of the M1 will be closed to all traffic.

This work will enable two separate projects to happen:

The Kegworth Bypass bridge will be launched over the motorway, south of Ashby Road Bridge, as part of a major infrastructure construction development at SEGRO Logistics Park, Eat Midlands gateway.

Separately and in order to avoid another full closure of the motorway, Highways England will be taking the opportunity to carry out essential bridge waterproofing works south of J23A.

There will be a traffic diversion route along the A453 for the entire time.

As the M1 is one of the UK's busiest motorways we expect significant congestion and delays along this diversion route and the Motorway. Therefore, we advise drivers avoid this area if possible and allow for extra time for their journey – in particular if travelling to East Midlands Airport.
