The Transport Secretary has written to me to confirm that the Government has accelerated the upgrade to the M1 junctions 28-31 in order to increase the motorway's capacity.

The Department for Transport hopes that work will start on the project in 2013/14 and be completed by spring 2015 rather than during the 2015/16 financial year. The start of work is subject to the completion of the necessary statutory processes.
