M1 J24 Improvement 10 April 2015

Improvement of the A50 approach to J24 of the M1, currently a simple roundabout which forms a significant bottleneck.

The improvement will provide a path through the roundabout, controlled by traffic signals, to allow A50 to M1 South traffic to avoid the roundabout altogether and join the M1 at junction 23A.
