People can find out more about plans to add extra capacity on the M1 at Thurcroft by upgrading it to a managed motorway.

Improvements are planned for 10.6 miles of the M1 from junction 32 to junction 35a.

The hard shoulder of the M1 will be converted to a permanent traffic lane. Variable mandatory speed limits, displayed on overhead and verge-mounted signs, will help smooth the flow of traffic and reduce congestion.

Public information exhibitions will be held at The Source at Meadowhall today (Friday) from 2-8pm and tomorrow (Saturday) from 10am-4pm. Highways Agency staff will be on hand to listen to concerns and answer questions.
