It will begin with a southbound closure of the M1 between junction 13 (Bedford/Milton Keynes South) and junction 11a (Chalton Interchange/Dunstable North/Houghton Regis), from Tuesday (December 5) from 10pm until 5am the following day. This will then be repeated each weeknight (between 10pm and 5am) for four nights until 5am on Saturday, December 10.

A lane will also be closed on the westbound carriageway during the same period. Drivers travelling southbound are advised to give themselves an extra 45 minutes to complete their journeys.

Further closures are planned for the following two weeks until Thursday, December 21.
