Traffic jam is a very big and serious problem for people living in London and no one wants to get into this and reach late on their destination. The junction 10a of the M1 that is a big roundabout connecting the M1 spur to London Road and Airport Way and links Luton to the broader motorway network. But unfortunately this route faces a very dense and difficult traffic jam during the peak travelling hours in the day and especially during evening times when many people opt for this path to go back to home.
There is a strong need to improve this road in order to manage this big and unbearable amount of traffic and make this road as convenient for people as possible. Before the population of surrounding areas increases due to employment and housing growth, it is very important for the authority to make sufficient changes in it otherwise that would be very tough to handle a big amount of traffic.
