Attempts to carry out gas works without altering traffic lights

Reported via mobile in the Traffic lights (NH) category anonymously at 23:10, Thu 30 June 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3638356.

The gas works on the Tinsley Viaduct are causing unacceptable delays. There will also be a crash at some point. It needs temporary traffic lights set up properly as the existing traffic lights are not managing traffic properly.

  • Thank you for contacting National Highways.

    We’re sorry to hear of the issues you’re experiencing during these works and understand that it’s frustrating when roadworks cause a delay to your journey.

    The traffic management on the M1 Junction 34 has been installed to enable Cadent gas to undertake urgent inspections of two main gas pipelines running under Tinsley Viaduct. To enable safe access for the inspections the A631 northbound has to be closed and traffic diverted north using the middle lane or service road. The signal timings at Junction 34 have been adjusted to reflect the new temporary layout and help smooth the flow of traffic. When planning these works we can assure you that safety and the impact to our customers has been considered to try minimise disruption to your journey and keep everyone safe.

    We’re having regular discussions with all key stakeholders. This includes meetings with the local authority and Police to manage this scheme and other works in the surrounding area. Feedback from our customers is always welcome. We’ve shared this with the site team and asked them to consider if further improvements are possible.

    The work by Cadent gas started on 27 June and is set to run for 11 weeks. Further information regarding the work can be found on the link provided here. Cadent gas can also be contacted on 0800 389 8000 or by email at

    Kind Regards

    National Highways
