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

And one of them 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 three closures are due to start over the next two weeks:

• M1, from 10pm April 2 to 5am April 3, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): A406 northbound, link road to M1 northbound, junction 1, carriageway and slip road closure for urgent loop repairs, diversion via National Highways roads.

• M1, from 10pm April 9 to 5am April 10, slight delays (under 10 minutes): M1 northbound, junction 1 to junction 2, Lane closure for emergency hazardous tree removal.

• M1, from 10pm April 15 to 5am April 20, slight delays (under 10 minutes): M1 southbound, junction 2 to junction 1, Lane closure for barrier works.

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