This section of the M1, between Lurgan and Ballynacor, near Portadown, opened in 1967. The M12 opened in part in 1970. It was intended to bypass Portadown for traffic heading to Newry and Armagh. In the event that road was built as a limited-access single carriageway <a href='http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/1597583'>J0053 : The Northway, Portadown (1)</a>.

There is currently two way traffic on one side of the dual carriageway. This rush hour picture shows queuing traffic approaching Newry.

This is looking the other way. I suppose it's possible to use this to bypass the queue and force your way back into the traffic.
