Northbound M1, Exit at Ridgmont Junction
M1 Junction 13, or Ridgmont Interchange has grown in importance since it first opened - as it has become the main junction for Bedford (with the A5140 extending to the junction) and parts of Milton Keynes (which didnít exist prior to the late-1960s) when the A421 was built.
M1 Motorway
The M1 is a northĖsouth 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.
