Drivers warned of motorway roadworks

DONCASTER motorists may be affected by motorway roadworks which begin on Monday.

Work will be taking place to update electrical cabling along the M180 near Scunthorpe for seven weeks.

The £912,000 project will take place in the central reservation of the motorway for about a mile around the interchange at Junction 5 of the motorway at Wrawby Moors.

Highways Agency bosses have warned motorists that the work will need around-the-clock closure of the outside lane in each direction.

Traffic management along the eastbound carriageway - where the motorway joins the A180 - will be removed at peak hours to minimise inconvenience to drivers leaving the motorway.

A 50mph speed limit will be in place throughout and lighting will also be switched off during the work.

The project is expected to be completed by Sunday, December 18.
