Is it safe to drive on M1?

There is always the risk of an accident on the M1 although there are excellent safety precautions in place.

The M1 motorway connects London to Leeds and stretches 193.6 miles in length.

It opened in 1959 as the UK’s first motorway it actually featured the very first motorway services.

Watford Gap and was built in four phases. When the M1 first opened it was a very different motorway to today.

In its early days there were no speed limits in place for vehicles and no crash barriers or central reservation.

The M1 starts at Edgware in north London and ends between Micklefield and Aberford just outside Leeds.

It connects to several other motorways, with junctions providing access to the M25, M45, M6, M69, M18, M62, M621 and A1M.

It also covers ten of the UK’s counties, from London up to Yorkshire.

And is therefore one of the most used and significant motorways in the country.

The M1 links to major cities, including Sheffield, Nottingham, Derby and Leicester.
