On the M62 between junction 25, near Brighouse, and junction 28 in Tingley, moderate delays are expected as work is carried out on the central reservation causing some lane and hard shoulder closures in each direction. Narrow lanes and a 50mph speed limit are also expected until May 31.

Between Junction 29 and 30, on the M62 south of Leeds, slight delays are expected due to hard shoulder, verge barrier, drainage, and junction improvements, causing lane closures on the east and westbound carriageways until April 5.

Towards Wakefield, between junction 34, at Whitley Bridge, and junction 33 at Knottingley, slight delays are expected due to drainage works. One lane will be closed eastbound and two lanes are closed westbound as work is carried out between 8pm-6pm until March 1.

The M62 south of Huddersfield, at junction 22 near Rishworth Moor and Outlane at junction 23, delays are expected as work continues on the central reservation. Two lanes will be closed eastbound and westbound between 8pm-6am until April 1.

On the M1, north of Barnsley, slight delays can be expected around junction 38, at Haigh, to junction 40, near Ossett, as various lane closures take effect caused by bridge works. The closures will affect southbound traffic until March 16 between 8pm-6am.

South of Doncaster, motorists on the A1 at Blyth and Wadworth can expect moderate delays as the road is resurfaced and workers carry out essential bridge works. The north and southbouond carriageways will be closed from 9pm-6am until 20 February. Diversions will be in place along the local road network. At Junction 37, near Marr, motorists can also expect moderate delays and a diversion will operate via junction 36.
