New Year roadworks: nine road closures for Doncaster drivers this week

Doncaster motorists who are heading out and about to celebrate New Year with friends and family will have nine road closures to watch out for.

Wednesday, 29th December 2021, 3:04 pm

But drivers will be able to take some solace in the fact that all of them are only expected to cause slight delays, of under ten minutes.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that two closures already in place are expected to carry on this week:

M18, from 8pm December 3 2021 to 6am January 13 2022, slight delays (under 10 minutes): M18 southbound, junction 2 to junction 1, Lane closure for carriageway improvements.
