The Staples Corner North Circular fly-over will be closed for three consecutive weekends, starting September 1, due to essential repairs.

The Staples Corner North Circular fly-over will be closed for three consecutive weekends, starting September 1, due to essential repairs. The closure is likely to cause chaos on local roads as motorists attempt to find alternative routes.

Local access will still be allowed for residents and businesses.

Staples Corner is one of the busiest junctions in North London as it where the M1 begins and ends.

The closures are to allow a 40-strong workforce to replace two 22-metre long steel expansion joints. The joints, which are vital to allow the flyover to cope with temperature change, were repaired 11 years ago, but are now in a poor condition and it is essential to replace them to avoid long-term disruption to motorists.

Transport for London say part time works would have taken over 50 days and would have increased disruption.

The flyover will be fully closed in both directions between the following times:

10pm Friday September 1 - 5am Monday September 4

10pm Friday September 8- 5am Monday September 11

00:00 – 23:59 Sunday September 17

The flyover will be reduced to one lane in each direction for four consecutive nights between 10pm and 5am from Monday August 28.

And the flyover will also be closed eastbound from 10pm Monday September 18 to 5am Tuesday September 19, and westbound from 10pm Tuesday September 19 to 5am Wednesday September 20.
