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

And they are both are expected to cause moderate delays – with motorists facing holdups 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:

• A1, from 10pm May 1st to 5am May 2nd, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M1 northbound, junction 1 to junction 4, carriageway closure and slip road closures for Parapet replacement works, diversion via TFL roads.

• A1, from 10pm May 2nd to 5am May 3rd, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M1 southbound, junction 4 to junction 1, Lane closure, slip road closures and carriageway closure for Parapet replacement works, diversion via TFL roads.

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