A1(M) junction 35 to 37 concrete barrier

Essential upgrade work to the safety barriers on the A1(M) between Wadworth and Marr.

Region:  North East
Start date:  27 April 2020
Cost:  ÂŁ6.5m
Status:  CURRENT
Type:  Maintenance Scheme
End date:  December 2020
Programme:  

Progress report

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.

For safety and to minimise disruption we’ll be working between 8am and 6pm during the day and overnight between 9pm and 6am between Monday and Thursday and between 10pm and 6am on Fridays.

For more information about the scheme please view our leaflet.

What's next?

We’ll start work on 27 April 2020 and expect the scheme to last about seven months.

To keep the period of work to a minimum traffic management will be permanently set for the duration of the scheme to narrow lanes with a 40mph speed limit enforced by speed cameras.

We’ll need to fully close the road for several weekends to install 500 metre sections of the concrete barrier at junctions 35 and 37. Full closures will start at 10pm Friday and end at 6am Monday morning.

Planned weekend closures: The northbound carriageway will be closed from junction 35 past junction 36 and will be on:

  • Friday 29 May to Monday 1 June
  • Friday 12 June to Monday 15 June
  • Friday 19 June to Monday 22 June

The southbound closure will be between junctions 35 to 34 and will be on:

  • Friday 10 July to Monday 13 July
  • Friday 17 July to Monday 20 July
  • Friday 24 July to Monday 27 July

There will be limited intermittent overnight closures for deliveries and to install and remove traffic management.

Timeline

  • April 2020 - Start of works
  • November 2020 - Scheme completion

Why we need this scheme

The current steel safety barrier along the route is nearing its end of life and needs upgrading.

Aims

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.
