The M1-A1 Link Road is a strategic motor way link between the M1 and M62 motorways to the south of Leeds and the A1 Trunk Road south of Wetherby. Connect Roads operates and maintains the 30km route. The project commenced in March 1996 as part of the Government's Private Finance Initiative and runs until 2026.

In addition to the construction of the M1 - A1 Link Road, the project included the improvement of the M62 east of junction 28 to the Lofthouse Interchange, the M1 from junction 42 to near Belle Isle, and the upgrading of the A1(T) from Micklefield to Bramham to motorway standard.

The contract was let by the Highways England, on behalf of the Secretary of State, who remains the Highway Authority for the route.
