  • Upcoming M11/A120 Closures

    Latest Update 1 July 2022

    Due to a change in operational plans we are cancelling the closures that were due to take place over the next two weekends, (Friday 1 July to Monday 4 July and Friday 8 July to Monday 11 July).

    Our work will now resume in September once we have reprogrammed our schedule. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

    Closures and diversions 

    To carry out the work safely, we will need to close the M11 junction 8 bridges. Only one of the bridges will be shut at a time to reduce the impact on local road users and those needing access to Stansted Airport and Birchanger Green Services.  

    North bridge closure (full weekend closures)

    Further dates to be confirmed.

Project information

Overview

Our works on M11 Junction 8 will replace waterproofing material that has reached its end of life, and is no longer protecting the concrete structure of the bridge, these are essential works to ensure the life-span of the bridges at this junction.

The new protection will ensure a longer maintenance-free period for the bridge, it will remove pot holes from the current surface and replace directional lines and markings on the bridge to ensure drivers can clearly see which lane they need to be in.
