M1 Junction 18 Crick Bridge
I’m writing to let you know that we’ll be carrying out essential renewal works to the 
waterproofing system on Crick bridge at junction 18 of the M1.
During our scheme of work we’ll plane off the existing carriageway surface, remove and 
replace the existing waterproofing system and then resurface the carriageway. Once 
competed, our work will prevent water leaking onto the bridge decks, which in turn will 
protect the structure. 
When will the work take place? 
Work is due to start on 21 June 2024 and is scheduled for completion by 29 July 
2024. We’ll work under full weekend closures on selected weekends from 8pm Friday
until 6am on Monday, in one direction at a time.
Please note that all our planned roadworks may be subject to change due to weather 
conditions or unforeseen circumstances. 
How will the work affect traffic?
To minimise disruption to the local community, residents, businesses and road users 
and also to keep our programme for these works as short as possible, our weekend 
closures are scheduled as follows
Northbound Carriageway Closures
• 8pm Friday 21 June until 6am Monday 24 June 
• 8pm Friday 28 June until 6am Monday 1 July
Southbound Carriageway Closures
• 8pm Friday 19 July until 6am Monday 22 July
• 8pm Friday 26 July until 6am Monday 29 July
During these closures fully signed diversion routes will be in place, which have been 
agreed with the Local Authority. 
How will the work affect businesses and residents?
Due to the nature of the work being carried out during these carriageway closures, 
we’ll be unable to provide any access to any vehicles, including the emergency 
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will do our very best to complete the 
work as quickly as possible, keeping disturbances and noise to a minimum.
