NOTIFICATION OF ESSENTIAL LIGHTING MAINTENANCE WORKS M1 Junction 21 to Junction 21a

Essential lighting maintenance work will be carried out on the M1 Junction 21 to Junction 21a by Highways England. 

The work includes:

  • remove and replace the current street lighting lanterns with LED lighting
  • replace existing light columns where necessary
  • replace sections of cable in the central reservation and northbound and southbound verges
  • upgrade existing electrical feeder pillar boxes

Once installed, the new LED lighting will reduce light pollution, energy usage and ongoing maintenance requirements.

When will the work take place?

The work is due to start on 5 October 2020 and is scheduled for completion by the end of March 2021.

To keep these works as short as possible and to minimise disruption to the local community, residents, businesses and road users, work will be done between 8pm and 6am, Monday to Friday.
