MOTORISTS using the M1 between Junction 6 for the M25 and Junction 7 for Hemel Hempstead on Tuesday and Wednesday night this week will find closures in place.

The northbound M1 will be closed overnight on Tuesday and the southbound carriageway will be shut overnight on Wednesday. Both closures will be from 10pm to 5am.

The closures are to enable the overhead gantries to be lifted safely into position.

Fully-signed diversion routes will be in place. During the northbound closure motorway traffic will be diverted via the A405 and M10 while drivers on the M25 wishing to join the M1 will be diverted to Junction 21A.

During the southbound closure, M1 drivers will follow the route in reverse using the M10 and A405. M25 traffic will not be affected.

The work is weather dependent and will not take place in high winds. Should it have to be postponed on either night, it will be carried out overnight on Thursday.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
