Northumberland-based artist Colin Rose has won a competition to design a string of noise barriers to screen off a five-mile section of the M1 motorway near Sheffield.

Rose proposes to install 7,000 concrete panels, each 2m tall, in a combination of zigzag and wave formations. Construction is scheduled for March.
