Northbound M1, Beechtrees/Breakspears Interchanges
Junctions 7 (Beechtrees) and 8 (Breakspears) were built in 1959 as part of the original section of the M1. They were recently merged into one junction during widening works. Originally the junctions were with the M10 and A4147, but now both junctions are with the A414.
M1 Motorway
The M1 is a north–south motorway connecting London to Leeds, where it joins the A1(M) near Aberford. It was the first motorway to be completed in the United Kingdom.
The motorway is 193 miles long and was constructed in four phases. Most of the motorway was opened between 1959 and 1968 but the southern end was extended in 1977 and the northern end was extended in 1999.
