M1 junctions 6a to 10 widening complete

Speed restrictions on the M1 for a major widening project between junctions 6a and 10 were lifted last Friday as the main 17km long road works were completed.

The Highways Agency confirmed that the scheme is now running at four-lanes with hard shoulders and no traffic management on the main carriageway.

Some lane restrictions remain on the link and slip roads between Junctions 7 and 8 which will remain at 50mph.

Work started on the project in March 2006 to improve the section from the M25 to Luton for the 160,000 vehicles that previously experienced long delays along it each day.
