Motorists face delays on the M1 spur road at Luton until early June.

A contraflow system was put in place yesterday (Tuesday) as part of works for Luton Borough Council’s long-awaited £30 million scheme to improve reliable journey times through Junction 10a. Motorists using the area en route to and from London Luton Airport and Luton town centre are advised to allow extra time for their journeys.

From the same date, westbound exit lanes at the M1 J10a roundabout will be reduced from three to two, and off-peak two-way traffic lights will be in operation in London Road from 9.30-3.30pm. A temporary 24-hour 30mph speed restriction is also already in place through the works.

The westbound carriageway will be completely closed overnight from Monday 10 March until Wednesday 12 March from 8pm-6am.

During these times traffic will still be able to leave the M1 at J10 but will not able to join, instead being diverted via Junction 11 (A505, A5065, A505).
