HS2 build 'will fuel A1 congestion'
Lincolnshire’s highways chief has warned of traffic chaos when building HS2 diverts traffic from the M1 to the A1.
Coun Richard Davies says the dual-carriageway is already at capacity and diverting the traffic will “exacerbate a busy, dangerous and congested road”.
He says this will happen when works starts on HS2, possibly in a couple of years, which will then disrupt the M1, forcing traffic on the A1.
