    Help M1 North

    Looking for some advice please.
    Not being a regular traveller up north I have to go to Durham tomorrow.
    Been a couple of times recently and wondering if anyone can tell me the quickest route.
    Is it to go M1 all the way through Leeds,or M18 and pick up the A1(M).
    The M1 through Leeds looks longer, but is it quicker by virtue of being motorway and able to boot it all the way?

    Thanks

    M42 to the M1 then M1 to the M18 then the A1M is the quickest and shortest route by about 8 miles and 6 minutes.

    Probably more chance of problems on the M1 through Sheffield than there is on the A1M/M18 and I would expect roadworks on there aswell where the A1M had none on that streach last week when I went up it.

    Cheers John,

    Was trying to figure if there was much in it at all.
    I will take your advice and go A1(M)

    theres no road works at sheffield now. plus the m1 is 3 lanes as opposed to 2 on a1. if your going on a weekend either way should be fine

    I travel to York every week to meet the missus.

    Go M1 - A1 then take the A168 which leads you onto the A19 before them dredded long and horrible 20 odd miles of roadworks at Ripon then cut back across on the A181

    How was the trip mate? I've got to go from Sheffield way to Durham on Thursday morning, and not really looking forward to the traffic as guessing it will be a ballache at 7am!
