The Parish Council has received the following notification from Highways England:

Important roadworks information

Dear Sir/Madam

M11 junction 7 to 8: drainage renewal

I write to inform you that we’ll be carrying out essential drainage renewal works at the above location, in both directions.

We plan to complete this work over eleven weeks, from Monday 5 October to Friday 18 December, working between the hours of 7.30am to 6pm, subject to weather conditions. The work will be carried out under lane closures which will be in place 24 hours a day, alongside our weekend closures detailed below.

There will be four weekend full closures on the M11 northbound between junctions 7 and 8 from Friday 6 November to Monday 9November, Friday 13 November to Monday 16 November, Friday 20 November to Monday 23 November, and Friday 4 December to Monday 7 December, working between the hours of Friday 10pm to Monday 5am.

Diversion routes

Traffic will be diverted off the M11 at junction 7 to join the A414, along the A10 northbound and onto the A120 eastbound, to re-join the M11 at junction 8. We expect this will add approximately 35 minutes to your journey.

A diagram of the diversion route can be found below:
