Motorists using the M1 past the Catthorpe interchange at junction 19 have been warned of more overnight closures later this month.

The Highways Agency says the southbound carriageway will be shut between the exit and entry slip roads on the nights of Tuesday May 27 and Wednesday May 28 while the northbound carriageway will be closed between the same points the following two nights.

The closures will be in place between 9pm and 6am each night, traffic flows permitting, and will enable contractors to install lighting columns and remove gantries.

During the closures traffic will be diverted along the M6 north to junction 1 where it can turn around and rejoin the M1.

The closures are part of the continuing work to improve the junction.
