The resurfacing will start on Friday, January 14.

“We’ll minimise disruption by working when traffic flows are lightest such as overnight and at weekends, but advise road users to allow extra time for their journeys and check their route before setting off.”

To carry out the work safely and efficiently, the M18 northbound will be closed between junctions two and three, and junctions three and four, but not at the same time.

Traffic will be diverted along the A630 and A6182 during the junction two to three closures and via the A6182, A18 and A630 during the junction three to four closures.

With a separate signed diversion for high vehicles to avoid a low bridge.
