Weekend closure planned for M1 junction

April 25th, 2018

A section of the M1 near Nottingham is due to close for a weekend in May 2018, to enable roadworks to be completed.

The southbound carriageway of junction 23A-24 of the M1 will be closed to all traffic from 10pm, Friday 11 May. The northbound carriageway will close two hours later (midnight, Friday 11 May).

Both carriageways are scheduled to reopen at 3pm, Sunday 13 May.

The closure is taking place to enable two separate roadwork projects to be completed:

  • 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 East Midlands Gateway.
  • Highways England will be carrying 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, drivers should expect significant congestion and delays along this diversion route and the motorway. Drivers are advised to avoid this area if possible and allow for extra time for their journey – in particular if travelling to East Midlands Airport.
