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

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.
