The M18 will be closed northbound near Doncaster this weekend.

“We plan to work from 10pm on Friday 25 March until 6am on Monday 28 March. Working over the full weekend will allow deeper patches of surfacing to cool before we reopen the carriageway.

“We can’t complete the work in bad weather – we may need to change our plans again in the event of heavy rain or wind. We will keep customers updated online on nationalhighways.co.uk and on social media.”

Customers travelling further than the M18/M62 Interchange will be directed to stay on the A1M northbound.
