Opportunity to learn about upcoming M11 road works

Drivers are invited to attend an exhibition to learn about planned maintenance works on the M11 and the A120 taking place throughout the next year.

Highways England will be delivering a series of schemes including installing digital messaging signs, resurfacing, drainage and embankment repairs on the M11 between junctions 6 (M25) and 12 (A603 – Cambridge), on the A120 near Stansted Airport, and on the A11 at the junction with the A1307.

An exhibition providing full details on these and offering anyone interested in the work to find out more will be held at the Radisson Blu Hotel at Stansted Airport from 3pm to 8pm on Tuesday 21 March.

The maintenance will consist of 11 different schemes on the M11 and A120 to complete essential work during spring and summer 2017.

This work will include:

  • resurfacing patches of the M11 in both directions between junctions 6 and 8, and the slip roads at junctions 8 and 8A
  • full resurfacing of the junction 8 roundabout at Thremhall Avenue, the A120 Priory Wood Roundabout, and the slip roads onto the A120, for Stansted Airport
  • repairing embankments on the M11 at the junction 7 northbound exit slip road, on the M11 southbound between junctions 7 and 8, and the road bridge crossing the M11 at Cantelupe Farm between junctions 11 and 12
  • replacing street lights with energy efficient models on the M11 northbound entry slip road at junction 12
  • repairing drainage on the M11 at junction 12 at Haggis Farm
  • replacing digital messaging signs on the M11 at junction 8
  • replacing noise barriers on the M11 southbound between junctions 9 and 8 at Wendens Ambo
  • adding signs and road markings to the A11 Fourwentways junction with the A1307

Highways England project manager Christopher Eglinton said:

Safety is a top priority for Highways England, and this work we are doing along the M11 and nearby roads will improve both safety and journey quality for drivers.

While we do our best to minimise disruption to drivers and communities while we are working, these works will have an impact on people. That is why we want to ensure everyone affected by these works has the opportunity to learn more about them, so I’d ask anyone with an interest to attend this event and speak to my colleagues and I about them.
