Drivers in and around Barnet will have three National Highways road closures to watch out for this week.

And one of them is expected to cause delays of between 10 and 30 minutes.

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

• A1, from 10pm March 19th to 5am March 20th, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A1 southbound, junction Barnet Bypass to junction A5135, lane closure for structural works.

• M1, from 10pm March 21st to 5am March 22nd, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M1 southbound, junction London Gateway Services, slip road closure for electrical works, diversion Via National Highways roads.

• M1, from 10pm March 21st to 5am March 22nd, slight delays (under 10 minutes): M1 southbound, junction London Gateway to junction 2, Lane closures for electrical works.

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