Motorists are stuck in traffic on The Parkway following a four vehicle collision earlier this morning.
It happened close to the exit for Gala Bingo on the inter-city carriageway at around 8am.
One of the vehicles involved was a works van.
Those involved were seen on the carriageway while they took photographs of their damaged vehicles and waited for emergency services to arrive.
Motorists said the shunt caused queuing traffic back to the M1.
A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said nobody was seriously injured.
