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

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.

During the two weekend closures we had in May and June of the northbound carriageway we completed a 500-metre section of concrete safety barrier at the northern end of the scheme. We’ve also completed some nearside verge drainage work.

For more information about the scheme please view our leaflet.

What's next?

Work started on 27 April 2020 and is expected to be complete in December.

We had three more closures planned for July to carry out the same work on the southbound carriageway at the southern end of the scheme. We’re pleased to confirm that work has progressed so well that we no longer need these additional closures.

Instead we can keep the route open for you using narrow lanes with speed restrictions for safety.

We’ll install the narrow lanes around the end of July, beginning of August for approximately 12-weeks with a camera enforced speed limit of 40mph.

For safety and to minimise disruption we’ll be working between 8am and 6pm during the day with limited intermittent overnight closures for deliveries and to remove materials.

Clearly signed diversions will be in place agreed with local authority and police.

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.
