    Default Important news for anyone using M1 between now and 2010

    Great news for anyone that travels and is paid by the hour but bad news for everyone else!

    As of 27/1/08 until Oct 2010 the M1 between J25 and J28 will be getting wider! The contraflow will start on the 27th Jan and the AVERAGE SPEED CAMERAS are being put in now so be warned and slow down cause Notts Police are doing the cameras and they are EVIL!!!

    So be prepared and bring extra sandwiches cause it never queues around here at the best of times!!

    Good luck

    Quicker to not bother.
    'Glad' I won't be doing that route anymore...

    IMO they are making a mistake in widening it to 4 lanes each way. It should be 6 lanes each way.

    To be honest people whinge & think the M1 widening south of Luton is the worst thing in the world.
    I don't see their problem. I don't go out of my way to avoid it and make for a more stressful drive taking back routes. Yes sometimes it's slow but you stick with it & it soon passes.
    Oh apart from the other morning when it was closed north bound as some hgv driver wanted to put his truck on its side. It was closed for 13 hours and I sailed past it twice heading south bound with no problems at all.

    Go on then..... tell us all.....,why are Notts Police so evil....
    Or is it that you'd rather decide what speed is safe to drive at given the road conditions your presented with....
    Or maybe they've got big bright red eyes,and crawl around on all fours only coming out in the dark to set up mysterious cameras that flash your car.....Ooooh Lol Couldn't resist that one....must be the job making me biased!!!

    Perhaps the people who think a 50mph limit through heavy roadworks is evil should spend a shift on the other side of the cones in a dayglow jacket and see if it changes their mind as to what is safe.....

    I don't argue with the speed limit restriction, just the idiots that sit 2" off your bumper and panic brake. I sit on the CC at 50 mph and try to leave a HUGE gap as I always catch those speeding between cameras (NOT understanding the meaning of AVERAGE speed)
