24 February 2022Upgrade programme: Update on M1 Junctions 13-16 - Road Closure Notice

Upgrade programme: Update on M1 Junctions 13-16

I am writing to advise you of bridge reprofiling and resurfacing works that will be taking place on the M1.

The M1 between junctions 14 to 15 southbound will be closed for 56 hours from 9pm on Friday 4 March 2022 to 6am on Monday 7 March 2022. The closure will allow engineers to adjust the profile of the carriageway and install bridge joints at Cattle Creep emergency turn around, Hartwell.

During this closure, we will also carry out a full reconstruction of the carriageway on the slip road and lane 1 at Newport Pagnell Services exit slip road. These works are essential to bring the carriageway into the new all lane running configuration.

As you can imagine, as this is a significant piece of work, we have to close the road fully to undertake it safely. If we are able to complete the work quicker than expected, we will re-open the road and will advise motorists and the public through social media and the electronic signs on the motorway itself. 

Please note that these are provisional dates and are subject to change, as there may be conditions outside of our control, such as adverse weather, and road incidents. If we are unable to complete these works on the above dates, we will be using a contingency weekend of 19 November. Please visit our website to see the latest M1 road closure dates and the official diversion routes at: www.highwaysengland.co.uk/M1junction13-16

Drivers will be encouraged to plan ahead and to use alternative routes such as the M40, A1 or the M11 with the A14. We will also ask drivers to avoid this section of the M1 and surrounding roads if possible. Diversion routes will be clearly signed during this closure. We encourage drivers to follow these and not their own satnavs to discourage them from choosing unsuitable routes.

We advise residents and business owners to allow extra time onto their journeys. We will do our utmost to complete the work as quickly as possible and keep noise and disruption to a minimum. However, we acknowledge some operations may be noisy, for example, reversing bleepers must be operational on our vehicles for health and safety reasons.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact us on 07469 391190. If you would like to know more about the project or register for email updates, please visit  www.highwaysengland.co.uk/M1junction13-16

Yours faithfully,
