Highways England is advising motorists to come off at junction 14 and follow the signs. Anyone travelling through the area is however, advised to allow extra time for their journey, or to plan an alternative route or time.
Nigel Allsopp, Highways England Events Planning Manager for the East of England, said:
Although there won’t be any road closures, we expect the M1 to be busy and due to some local authority roadworks at Kingston roundabout, we’re advising drivers to use junction 14.
We strongly advise road users in the area to plan ahead and allow extra journey time in case of any delays.
