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

And one of them is expected to cause moderate delays – with drivers facing a holdup of between 10 minutes and half an hour.

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

• M1, from 10pm January 29 to 5am January 30, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M1 northbound, junction 1 to junction 2, carriageway closure for joint investigations, diversion via Local Authorities roads.

• M1, from 10pm January 29 to 5am January 30, slight delays (under 10 minutes): M1 southbound, junction London Gateway to junction 2, Lane closures for urgent safety fence repairs.

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