There will be overnight closures of the M1 between junctions 13 and 16 during May. This is for work to install overhead gantry structures to display electronic message signs and to install CCTV between junctions 13 and 14 and junctions 15 and 16.
Please note that these are provisional dates and are subject to change. Visit the Highways England website to see the latest M1 road closure dates and the official diversion routes. More »
We ask drivers to follow the signed diversion routes during these road closures. Please do not use satellite navigation (sat nav) when following the diversion, as they may give conflicting information. Please be considerate of residents living along the diversion routes when using these roads when the M1 is closed.
We advise local residents and business owners to allow extra time onto their journeys. We will do our utmost to complete the work as quickly as possible and keep noise and disruption to a minimum. However, we acknowledge some operations may be noisy, for example, reversing bleepers must be operational on our vehicles for health and safety reasons.
If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact us on 07469 391190. If you would like to know more about the project or register for email updates, please visit www.highwaysengland.co.uk/M1junction13-16 » Less

I write regarding the emergency closure implemented yesterday on Ditchford Road, Rushden by Cadent Gas. (the road over the River Nene, connecting the west of Rushden with Wellingborough and Irthlingborough)
We realise this is causing concern due to the planned full closure at the A6/A45 Chowns Mill roundabout this weekend.
Cadent has closed the road in both directions for safety and are working to repair this. I am in contact with the NCC NRSWA team who have been to site to assess and review the situation. As of yesterday they were working to repair the issue and reopen the road but could not confirm how long it would take. More »
Northamptonshire Highways realise how important it is that the road is reopened. It is not possible to stop the gas works happening as it is essential the fault is repaired. We are working with Cadent to get Ditchford Road opened for Friday. If this is not possible temporary two way lights will be installed to manage the traffic over the weekend.
Highways England are aware too and have their full closure at A6/A45 Chowns Mill roundabout this weekend. Friday 12 March 8pm to Monday 15 March 5am. This closure has been planned for a long time and will go ahead. Works may change depending on weather or any unforeseen circumstances. If you do need to make an essential journey during this weekend, please plan ahead and allow more time for your journey.
Everyone involved is doing all they can to ensure this route is reopened before Highways England close the approaches to Chowns Mill on Friday evening.
An update will be provided on Friday. Sooner if Cadent Gas are able to complete their repairs.
Please feel free to share this information on your channels. We will also be providing updates on Twitter @nnhighways.
