The main road is closed, with traffic being routed around the junction and back on again, resulting in stop-start traffic.

Severe delays are expected on on M1 southbound at J35, A629 (Rotherham), because of an accident involving a van and two cars.

Cars are currently being diverted via the exit and entry slip roads. There is also congestion to A616 and to J37, A628 (Barnsley).
