Drivers are being advised that a second partial weekend closure of the southbound M18 near Doncaster will be taking place.

The southbound carriageway has been closed between junction 3 at St Catherine’s and junction 2 at Wadworth since 10pm yesterday. It will re-open at 10am on Sunday, March 25.

A fully-signed diversion will be in place using White Rose Way and A18 Carr House Road onto the A1(M) at junction 36 Warmsworth interchange, taking drivers onto Wadworth interchange.

Drivers are being advised that the diversion route is likely to be busier than usual. They are being urged to plan extra time for journeys.

The closures will allow for vital carriageway reconstruction work to be carried out.

The Highways Agency said it had timed the works to try and keep disruption to a minimum.
