M1 traffic alert for barrier repairs
Three narrowed lanes will be in operation every day, but overnight closures may be required.
Project manager, Tim Calvert, said: "This barrier replacement scheme will improve safety on the M1 in South Yorkshire. Concrete barriers reduce the risk of vehicles involved in accidents crossing from one side of the motorway to the other and improve the safety of road users and road workers.
"To minimize the disruption to drivers, three lanes will remain open in each direction during the day. During the work a 50mph speed limit will be in place to ensure the safety of road users and our workforce.
"During the work we advise road users to plan their journeys to avoid delays. And for the safety of drivers and roadworkers we encourage all drivers to drive carefully past the work site, keeping within the speed limit, and concentrating on the road ahead."
