Overnight closures in Hatfield tunnel
OVERNIGHT road closures will be in place on the A1(M) this weekend as work to overhaul the Hatfield Tunnel continues.
The motorway – which had initially been set to close overnight over the past weekend – will now shut between junctions 3 and 4 from 10pm this Friday to 5am on Saturday.
It will also be shut between 10pm on Sunday and 5am on Monday.
A fully-signed diversion route via the A1001 and A414 will be in operation during this time.
As a result of these changes, there will be a two-lane contraflow in both directions in the northbound tunnel while the southbound tunnel is being revamped.

Drivers are being warned to expect moderate delays.
