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

And two of them are expected to cause moderate delays – with drivers facing waits of between 10 and 30 minutes.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that one closure already in place is expected to carry on this week:

• M1, from 10pm September 14 to 5am September 20, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M1 northbound, junction 1 to junction 4, carriageway and slip road closure, diversion via TFL roads.

And a further two closures will begin over the next two weeks:

• M1, from 10pm September 20 to 5am September 23, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M1 southbound, junction 4 to junction 1, carriageway closure, entry slip road closure and lane closures for maintenance works, diversion via TFL roads.

• M1, from 10pm October 2 to 5am October 28, slight delays (under 10 minutes): M1 northbound, junction 2 to junction 4, Lane 3,2 closure for barrier works.

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