M1 junctions 32-35aRecently updated

Improving the M1 by making it a smart motorway between junctions 32 and 35a.

Region:  North East
Start date:  January 2015
Cost:  ¬£106.1 million
Status:  COMPLETED
Type:  Major Scheme
End date:  March 2017
Programme:  Smart Motorways

Progress report

The M1 smart motorway from junction 32 to 35a is now operational and open to traffic. We have some scheduled maintenance planned over the coming months, which includes minor resurfacing works and installing further roadside technology along this section of the motorway. We will undertake these activities overnight to keep any disruption to a minimum.

Timeline

Date Event
October 2010 Spending review: scheme to be prepared for construction by 2016
March 2012 Start of construction confirmed for 2013/14, subject to statutory processes
June 2013 Start of preparatory scheme to replace central reserve barrier
December 2013 Preparatory scheme ends
February 2015 Construction begins
Winter 2016/17 Construction ends

Why we need this scheme

The M1 in South Yorkshire is an important route for regional and international traffic. The section between junction 32 (M18) and junction 35 (A616) carries more than 110,000 vehicles each day and suffers from congestion and delay at peak times.

Aims

This project will relieve congestion and smooth the flow of the traffic, improving safety and journey times. These benefits will also support economic development in the region.
