M1 Junction 10 - 13 Improvements - Scheme Assessment Report

Publication type:Report

Introduction

In January 2009, the Secretary of State announced that the M1 between Junctions 10 and 13 would be improved using Hard Shoulder Running (HSR). The draft Orders for the widening scheme were subsequently withdrawn on 19th March 2009.

The HSR Improvements on the motorway between Junctions 10 and 13 will be carried out within existing motorway land and can progress independently of improvements to Junctions 11 and 12. Construction of the HSR Improvements is expected to start by the end of 2009.

Options for improvements to Junctions 11 and 12 have been studied and presented to the public for comment in a Public Consultation. The results of the study and the views of the respondents to the consultation are presented in Technical Appraisal Report (No. D123846/6/02) and Public Consultation Report (No. D123846/6/04) respectively.

For clarity, the options considered and the engineering and environmental assessments at each junction are described in separate sections of this report. Traffic and economics matters are described for both junctions combined as, if approved by the Secretary of State, the improvements would be taken forward as a single scheme.

This report summarises the results of the study and the Public Consultation and recommends preferred solutions for improvements at each junction.
