M180 junctions 1 to 2 barrier replacement

Guy Harrington

Work to replace the existing steel barrier in the central reserve with new concrete barriers, replace steel safety barriers next to the verge, mainline carriageway resurfacing and improvements to road drainage. Work will also involve resurfacing of the westbound entry slip road at junction 1and renewing the high friction surfacing on the westbound exit slip road at junction 2.

There will be some disruption to traffic between junctions 1 and 2 of the M180 during this project due to a 50mph temporary speed restriction with average speed cameras in place, narrow lane running and some associated lane closures. For some aspects of the work the M180 will be closed overnight with clearly signed diversion routes in place to divert traffic.


Eastbound – driving east exit the M180 using junction 1, take the A18 east, take the A161 south to re-join at junction 2.

Westbound – driving west exit the M180 using junction 2, take the A161 north, take the A18 west, take the A18 south to re-join M180 westbound at junction 1.
