Barnet’s motorists will have a road closure to avoid nearby on the National Highways network this week.

And it is expected to cause delays of between 10 minutes and half an hour.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that one closure is due to start over the next two weeks:

• M1, from 10pm July 10 to 6am July 22, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M1 southbound, junction 5 to junction 1, carriageway and lane closure for surfacing works, diversion via Local authorities.

National Highways is responsible for maintaining motorways and major A-roads, so closures of smaller roads are not included in their schedule.
