Current and Planned Roadworks


Works are due to commence between Junction 2 to Junction 3 of the M18.  The scheme entails widening the existing carriageway to provide a designated left lane for the A6182 to Doncaster.  New overhead sign gantries will be placed as well as new MS3 signs (message display signs).  

Key dates are as follows:

  • CCTV and temporary speed cameras have been installed and will be operational from the 14th July 2014.
  • The northbound carriageway will be reduced to narrow lanes from the 15th July 2014 to enable works to be carried out safely (an enforced 50mph speed limit will be in place for the safety).
  • During the day operations 2 lanes in each direction will be maintained with recovery being provided to remove any breakdowns as quick as possible.
  • Gantry erection will require night-time carriageway closures which are planned for the back end of this year; separate notification will be published near the time.
  • Works are planned to be completed by Spring 2015.

Night-time lane closures will be necessary to undertake certain activities and ensure the safety of our workforce and the travelling public. 


TOTAL CLOSURES of the M180 J1 - J4 Surfacing works and J5 of the M18.

The works will involve reconstruction of the existing carriageway along with renewal of associated road markings and studs. 

Work is expected to start on 1st August 2014 and to be completed by 27th August 2014, assuming reasonable weather conditions.   Specific closures for the works are planned as follows:

  • M18 J5/M180 Ings, full closure of circulatory between 2000hrs 01/08/2014 until 0600hrs 04/08/2014.
  • M180 Junction 1 to 2 Eastbound, single lane running from 0600hrs 04/08/2014 then full closure of the carriageway from 2000hrs 04/08/2014 until full reopening at 0600hrs 06/08/2014.
  • M180 Junction 2 to 3 Eastbound, full closure of carriageway from 0600hrs 06/08/2014 until reopening at 0600hrs 11/08/2014.
  • M180 Junction 4 to 3 Westbound, full night time closures between 2100hrs to 0530hrs between 11 – 15/08/2014 and 26 & 27/08/2014. Additional single lane closures during daytime.
  • M180 Junction 3-2 Westbound, single lane running from 0600hrs 15/08/2014 then full closure between 2000hrs 15/08/2014 until full reopening at 0600 20/08/2014.
  • M180 Junction 2-1 Westbound, full overnight closures between 2000hrs and 0600hrs on the 20 & 21/08/2014.

During each closure clearly signed diversion routes will be in place to minimise disruption.
