Warning for motorists as M18 link road shut for vehicle recovery

A LINK road between the M18 and M1 in Rotherham is closed, motorists have been warned.

Highways England said traffic wanting to travel South on the M1 would need to travel North to J33 and turn around as the link from the southbound M18 to the M1 southbound is shut while a lorry is recovered.

The aim is for the road to be reopened as quickly as possible, but it is causing some heavy traffic build up and delays, the roads agency said.
