There are currently four schemes being undertaken on the M18 between junctions 2 and 5 which are due to be completed by the end of March 2011.

This work includes three schemes to replace steel central reserve barriers, which are approaching the end of their design life, with new concrete central reserve barrier:

Junction 4 North (Waterton Bridge): commenced 20 December for 13 weeks.

Junction 3 North: commenced 18 October for 16 weeks.

Junction 2 to 3: commenced 20 December for 10 weeks.

In addition to the safety barrier works, work has also commenced at the A1 (M)/M18 Wadworth Interchange (M18 Junction 2) to install traffic signals. This is also due to be completed by the end of March 2011.
