Death on M1 causing major congestion

Friday 12th October 2012
The M1 on Friday.

There is congestion on major roads around Barnsley after a fatal incident involving a lorry and a pedestrian on the M1.

 

The incident happened at about 12.30pm on the northbound carriageway between junctions 37 and 38 which lead to Dodworth and Woolley.

 

The northbound carriageway is likely to be closed until Friday evening but the southbound carriageway was re-opened just before 2pm.

 

A diversion is in place with northbound drivers being asked to follow the Hollow Square symbol taking them from junction 37 to junction 39 - via the westbound A628, north west along the A629 and then east and north east along the A635 and A636 respectively.
