The northbound carriageway will be closed between the exit and entry slip roads on Monday while the southbound carriageway will be closed between the same points the following night.

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

During the closures traffic will be diverted along the M6 north to junction 1 where it can turn around and rejoin the M1.

Further information about the project is available on the scheme pages on the Highways Agency’s website.
