No full closure of M180

The Highways Agency have confirmed that there will be no full closure of the westbound carriageway of the M180 later this month.

Earlier today, Brigg and Goole MP Andrew Percy tweeted this:

Highways Agency "working round the clock" on M180

The Highways Agency says it is continuing to work around the clock to open the motorway by 6am on Monday morning.

The advice to drivers is to follow the road signs and use alternative routes to avoid queuing in traffic.

Tolls have now been suspended until 11.59pm on Monday to compensate.

“This morning we have seen much reduced delays around the M180 and A18. However, there are still two lanes closed on the M180 and we advise people who can take alternative routes to the east coast to do so.

“We have been working hard to revise the work schedule to alleviate the delays experienced over the past two days and our contractors have worked round the clock to get one lane open this morning.”

"Unprecedented" traffic on Humber Bridge

The Humber Bridgemaster, Peter Hill, says the bridge has seen "unprecedented levels of traffic" over the last two days because of roadworks on the M180.

He believes it is the first time the tolls have been suspended due to traffic congestion - but that includes last night's suspension between 18:00-19:00 as an emergency measure, due to the same congestion.

He says suspension means that traffic is now flowing freely over the bridge.
