M1 and M69 travel advice for this weekend

Figure image
Supporters should be aware that traffic restrictions and diversions will be in operation on parts of the motorway intersection at Junction 21 at Leicester this weekend.

There will be a partial closure of Junction 21 for the whole weekend. Carriageway widening, reconstruction and drainage work will result in the south-west section of the roundabout’s closure.

This will mean that traffic will not be able to travel westbound on the M69 from junction 21 and the M1 northbound exit slip will have to be closed.

Diversions will be in place but motorists are encouraged to plan their journeys and allow additional time.

The M69 diversion will take traffic on to the A5 and this could lead to congestion and delays in that area.

Partial closure starts at 10pm on Friday, November 22 through to 6am on Monday, November 25.

All supporters using this route to Welford Road for Saturday’s Aviva Premiership fixture between Leicester Tigers and London Irish should allow extra time for their journey.
