Traffic update: Rush hour delays on M1 are starting

Traffic is moving fairly well so far this afternoon in the Mansfield and Ashfield area, although delays are starting on the M1 between junctions 28 and 31.

Vehicles are so far moving freely apart from the usual hotspots on the M1.

The A617 going towards the M1 is quiet and traffic on Nottingham Road is also moving nicely.

Although roadworks remain in place on the M1 between junctions 28 and 31 of the M1, which will cause slow-moving traffic during rush hour.

On the M1 southbound between junctions J31 and J30, there are currently delays of 10 mins due to roadworks.

The A632 southwest at Langwith is reported to be blocked.
