M18 junction 1 to junction 7 resurfacingRecently updated

Work to resurface sections of the M18 at various locations between junctions 1 and 7 to provide a smoother surface and a safer journey for all road users. Other work includes new road markings, replacing road studs and replacing traffic technology loops.

Region:  North East
Start date:  8 July 2019
Cost:  £2 million
Status:  CURRENT
Type:  Improvement Scheme
End date:  24 September 2019
Programme:  

We are resurfacing the M18:

  • between junction 3 and junction 4, both northbound and southbound
  • between junction 5 and junction 6, northbound
  • between junction 6 and junction 7, both northbound and southbound
  • between junction 2 and junction 1 (Long Leys Lane bridge), southbound

What's next

We will carry out the work overnight from Monday to Friday. We will need to close the road during the works, but only one direction of the carriageway will be closed at any one time. The road will be open as usual during the day

For up to date information on road closures check the planned roadworks feed below.

We'll put clearly signed diversion routes in place during closures. We have agreed diversion routes in advance with the relevant Local Authorities and the Police. We advise all motorists to stick to the signed diversion routes, which have been chosen with both suitability and safety in mind
