M1 motorway closure

The M1 motorway will close to southbound traffic from 10pm on Friday 11 May and from midnight on the same day to northbound traffic.

This is to allow the installation of a new motorway bridge which is part of the planned Kegworth bypass that will alleviate HGV traffic from travelling through local villages. The work is part of wider infrastructure improvements at SEGRO Logistics Park East Midlands Gateway.

Highways England traffic officers will be on patrol to manage traffic flows and new signage is also being put in place ahead of the work to ensure motorists can plan their journeys before setting off.

Further details, including the temporary diversion route, are available here.
