MP welcomes update on A1(M) works

North East Herts MP, Sir Oliver Heald, has welcomed a report from Highways England confirming that work to upgrade the A1(M) is progressing well and on time. The preliminary design is complete and the phase 1 construction delivery partner tender is underway. Once the contractor is appointed, detailed design will begin, followed by construction in March 2020.

“It is good news that the works between junctions 6 and 8 A1M have been designed, are on time for construction in 2020 and that we will soon see improved traffic flow. There is bound to be disruption during works, but the scheme will deliver 50% more capacity on this very busy stretch of the A1(M).”
