Smoother journeys for M11 drivers

Written by Ellie

Individuals making use of the M11 between Stansted and the M25 in the months ahead will soon benefit from smoother journeys.

Highways England engineers are preparing to begin work on essential resurfacing for a 14-mile stretch of the M11 carriageway between junctions 6 and 8, which will get underway from December 7th.

The project aims to ensure safer and more reliable journeys for road users in the future and will result in a lower amount of wear and tear for regular travellers in the area.

Overnight closures for the M11 will be taking place each evening from 22:00 until 06:00 the following morning for the duration of the project. It will see closures for both northbound and southbound travellers and includes the M11-A120 link road.

Highways England project manager Jennie Fraser said: "This vital resurfacing work will not only improve safety but will provide road users with a better driving experience. The white lines will also be more visible, improving driver safety.

"We have planned this work carefully to minimise the inconvenience to road users, by carrying out work overnight when traffic flows are lowest and will suspend work during the Christmas period."

Ms Fraser added that motorists should be prepared for potential delays during the coming weeks as these essential works are carried out. It is therefore prudent for travellers to plan their journeys in advance and to allow extra time to reach their destination.

Clearly signposted diversions will be in place while overnight resurfacing works are carried out in the area, with travellers urged to keep abreast of local weather up-dates, which could have an impact on the timeline for completion of this expansive scheme.
