M1 Overview

Connecting London and Leeds, the M1 was the first inter-urban motorway to be built in Britain. Running in total a length of 193 miles, it was opened to public transportation use in 1959. Work on the Catthorpe Interchange in Leicestershire to relieve traffic congestion is underway, and is due to be finished in 2016.

Average speeds are from the Highways Agency network journey time and traffic flow data May 2014.

M1 is the major motorway that connects London to Leeds and is unofficially part of the European route E13. This north to south highway will eventually connect with A1 in the vicinity of Aberford. Measuring to approximately 311 km or 193 miles, the M1 underwent four major construction phases including reconstructions and extensions.

The first constructed part was built somewhere between Watford (Junction 5) and Crick/Rugby (Junction 18) and was opened to the public in November 1959. The next phase was done from 1965-1968 from Junction 18 to Leeds. Then, an extension was constructed in 1972 forming the Leeds South Eastern Motorway thereby connecting to Leeds South Western Motorway. Lastly, for about three years from 1996-1999, M1 went through a major reconstruction in the northern side of M62 in order to provide a new route leading to Aberford's A1(M).

Today, M1 is currently undergoing some improvements particularly about hard shoulder running scheme. This development will be launched about 24 km or 15 miles of M1 in the middle of Junction 10 at the south of Luton and Junction 13 where it connects with A421. This current project is to be completed in 2013. Likewise, there are a number of proposals that are being offered and subjected to inquiry and assessments for future improvements, upgrades, and widening of M1 motorway in order to make it better and safer for motorists and pedestrians.
