A1 M18 to M62 Redhouse to Darrington and Doncaster bypass
We’re in the process of developing plans for improvements to the A1/A1(M) between the M18 junction (Wadworth) and M62 (Holmfield interchange) to add capacity.
In the Road Investment Strategy 2020-2025, government committed to developing a number of schemes that will be considered as part of a future roads investment period. This is one of the schemes that will be developed.
Currently the route is congested, especially on weekday mornings and evenings, and has a number of local road accesses between Redhouse and Darrington. The number of accidents recorded on this route is higher than the national average.
The scheme will look to relieve congestion, improve journey time variability, support regeneration and the regional economy. It will also complement other improvements to the strategic road network in the region, and improve, as far as possible, environment and to ensure that impacts on people, fauna, flora and other natural assets adjacent to proposals are minimised.
