The M1 will be open between junctions 13-14 so this can be used as a diversion. For a non-motorway route, motorists are advised to use the A422 diversion, which is signed.

They closures are to allow work to take place on Cranfield Bridge. Traffic will be switched to the new road surface so the existing carriageway can be levelled out, says MK Council.
