Night closures on A1(M) at Hatfield Tunnel

THE Hatfield Tunnel will be shut at night this week for motorists travelling south on the A1(M).

The carriageway will be closed between junctions 4 and 3, either side of the tunnel, as part on the ongoing roadworks.

Closures will be in place from 10pm until 5am each night from tonight (Monday) until Saturday.

A Highways Agency spokesman said: “We are carrying out inspection work inside the tunnel, which is currently being refurbished, as well as making preparations for a change to the road layout.”

A fully-signed diversion route between junctions 4 and 2, using the A1001 and A414, will be in place.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time for their journey.
