Current roadworks, planned roadworks and road closures

Details of current roadworks, planned roadworks, traffic restrictions and road closures in and around Doncaster.

M18 resurfacing works by National Highways (formerly known as Highways England)

  • National Highways (NH) have some major resurfacing of the M18 to be undertaken between Junction 2 (Wadworth) and Junction 4 (West Moor Link). These works will be confined to the Northbound carriageway only (towards the M180) and will involve resurfacing of the carriageway, the majority of the closures will occur overnight. However NH have identified that some of the works specifically between Junction 2 and 3 has some large and deep areas of carriageway damage that means that they will be unable to be repaired / areas cured in time to allow the road to be open to traffic under a night-time only closure. It will therefore be necessary for up to 4 weekend closures.  These are programmed:-
    • Between 2200hrs on Friday 21st to 0600hrs on Monday 24th January
    • Between 2200hrs on Friday 28st to 0600hrs on Monday 31st January
    • Between 2200hrs on Friday 11th to 0600hrs on Monday 14th February

Although signs will be erected to advise all through traffic to remain on the motorway (the diversion route will be via the A1) there will inevitably be more traffic on Doncaster’s Network during these weekend periods.
