Overnight closures of the M1 at junction 19 Catthorpe, Leicestershire

There will be a number of overnight closures on the M1 at junction 19 near Catthorpe, Leicestershire, during the week of 26 May as part of the Highways Agency’s ongoing work at the junction.


The southbound carriageway will be shut between the exit and entry slip roads on the nights of Tuesday 27 and Wednesday 28 May while the northbound carriageway will be closed between the same points the following two nights.

The closures will be in place between 9pm and 6am each night, traffic flows permitting, and will enable contractors to install lighting columns and remove gantries.
