Drivers have been warned of congestion on the M1 near Meadowhall due to roadworks today.

Two lanes have been closed northbound between junctions 33 for Catcliffe and 34 for Meadowhall so waterproofing and re-surfacing works can be carried out on the Brinsworth Road bridge.

National Highways Yorkshire said this morning ‘there is congestion while this vital work takes place’.

South Yorkshire Police’s Operational Support unit tweeted at 12.30pm, saying: “Avoid this area if you can. We have just had a drive through and it is very busy.”
