M1 junction 13 - 16 upgrade scheme - continuation of phased opening
Please see the information below from National Highways regarding progress on the second and third sections of the upgraded M1 motorway between junctions 13 and 16:
On Monday 5 December, a 4.2-mile section north of junction 14 (from Newport Pagnell services) will be opened. A further 4.5-mile section up to junction 15 (Northampton) is set to open in early 2023. Together these make up the second section of the M1 upgrade.
The third and final section of the upgrade, between junctions 15 and 16, began its phased opening last month, with four lanes in each direction at 60mph, and is expected to fully open by March 2023.
The works to install low noise surfacing between junctions 14 and 16 were originally due to be completed by mid-December, however due to adverse weather conditions will now be completed by mid-January 2023. The latest road closure information can be found on the scheme website at www.nationalhighways.co.uk/M1junction13-16.
