We have been working closely with Stansted Airport on the programme. We urge holiday makers and motorists to plan ahead and allow extra time in case of any delays.

The following locations are affected:

  • M11 southbound at junction 8
  • A120 Trinity Stansted junction
  • A120 between Dunmow & Blake End junctions
  • A120 between Priory Wood roundabout and Stansted Airport eastbound exit (closed from 8pm)
  • M11northbound prior to junction 7 exit
  • M11 northbound after junction 6 entry slip road

At these locations we will:

  • resurface
  • repair drainage and fencing
  • reconstruct embankments
  • replace road and lane markings
  • replace road barriers

As with most of our schemes, we’ll carry out the work overnight to reduce disruption to you. In February, we’ll usually work 10pm – 6am. In March, we’ll usually work 9pm – 6am. There will be some lane closures, slip road closures and temporary speed limits during this time.

Don’t forget to sign up to our email alerts to stay up to date on our planned schedule.
