A1(M) junction 35 to 37 concrete barrier
We’re carrying out essential upgrade work to the safety barriers on the A1(M) between Wadworth and Marr and to the drainage, improving safety for drivers.
We’re removing the life-expired steel central reservation barrier along this motorway section of the A1. The existing barrier will be replaced with 4,600 metres of concrete safety barrier and 370 metres of steel barrier protecting bridge supports with 1,550 metres of new central reservation drainage.
This work will improve safety for drivers travelling along the route.
The current steel safety barrier along the route is nearing its end of life and needs upgrading.
The replacement barrier will provide better protection, it will need less maintenance and is more durable. The drainage work will reduce the amount of surface water improving safety and providing better journeys for road users.
