Road Closures - M1 junc 14-15

Following the pavement lowering works that were planned to take place between Friday 22 October – Monday 25 October. Due to unforeseen circumstances with the equipment making the specialist surfacing material, we were unable to complete these works. The road reopened on Saturday 23 October.

The M1 between junctions 14 to 15 northbound will now be closed for 56 hours from 10pm on Friday 19 November to 6am on Monday 22 November. The closure will allow engineers to lower the motorway surface at Tongwell Lane Farm bridge and adjusting the gradients on the carriageway at Little Linford Lane bridge. This work is necessary because the bridge is currently too low for traffic such as lorries once this section of the M1 becomes a four-lane motorway.

During the road closure, drivers will be encouraged to plan ahead and to use alternative routes such as the M40, A1 or the M11 with the A14. We will also ask motorists to avoid this section of the M1 and surrounding roads if possible. Diversion routes will be clearly signed for the duration of this road closure. We also advise drivers to follow the signed diversion routes and not their own Satnavs to discourage them from choosing unsuitable routes.

Kind regards
