M1 junctions 10 to 13 Update – April 2024

e-bulletin – April 2024

Dear Stakeholder

Notification of carriageway repairs, as part of the M1 junctions 10 to 13 scheme

I’m writing to tell you that we plan to carry out essential maintenance on the M1 between junction 10 (Luton South) and junction 13 (Milton Keynes South).

Our work will involve repairing the carriageway to ensure the M1 remains in a safe and serviceable condition. During these closures, we’ll also be carrying out repairs to CCTV and variable message signs, which are used to assist with the management of traffic on the motorway.

To carry out this work safely, we’ll need to close the between 10pm and 5am when traffic levels are at their lowest. Each closure will have fully signed diversion routes in place. Please find below the closure information:

We’re also working with colleagues across National Highways to ensure that the work is coordinated alongside other maintenance work being done, so that we minimise disruption to the public.

Please note these are provisional dates which may be subject to change due to conditions outside of our control, such as adverse weather or road incidents. We’ll update our website accordingly with any changes, which can be accessed via our scheme website.

Drivers are asked to follow the signed diversion routes during these road closures. Please do not use satellite navigation (sat nav) when following the diversion, as they may give conflicting information. Please be considerate of residents living along the diversion routes when using these roads when the M1 is closed.

Diversion timings are approximate and are a guide only: please check Traffic England (www.trafficengland.co.uk) for current traffic conditions. A map of the diversion routes can be found on the scheme website.

We’ll do all we can to keep disruption to a minimum, but we anticipate delays during peak times, so we’re encouraging drivers to plan their journeys. We’re sorry for the disruption and inconvenience this may cause to your journeys. We’d encourage drivers to plan ahead and allow extra time when travelling.

Road users can also keep up to date on road closures by visiting our Traffic England website at www.trafficengland.com or by following our X feed (Twitter) @HighwaysEAST.
If you’d like more information about this work, you can contact us by calling our 24/7 Customer Contact Centre on 0300 123 5000, or by emailing info@nationalhighways.co.uk.

Yours faithfully

William Edwards
Programme Manager
