Essential resurfacing works are being completed on the M11 around Cambridgeshire throughout November. With the original road laid in the 1970s, Highways England are making vital improvements before the colder weather hits.
The repairs are set to make the road surface both smoother and safer for drivers.
There will be some periodic road closures with some already having occurred on stretches of the A14 and M11 near Great Abington. Works have also been underway on the A10 this month to build a new turning on the Cambridge Research Park roundabout.
The latest works are being completed on the M11 from Junction 9 to Junction 9a near Ickleton. The road will be closed overnight from 8pm until 6am this week, with plans to reopen the road at 6am on Saturday.
There are diversions in place for drivers heading north on the M11.
The M11 from Junction 9 to Junction 9a near Ickleton is closed overnight from 8pm until 6am for concrete surface repairs…
This 55 mile stretch of motorway has been connecting people from Cambridge to London since 1975. The M11 is used by thousands of drivers every day for work, visits to friends and family, and the movement of goods.
While the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement scheme opened to traffic on 5 May 2020, there are still some stages of the upgrade that have yet to be completed, including work on road verges, landscaping, and pedestrian and cycle paths.
Highways England is advising that you check #M11 on Twitter before you travel, or visit their website for the latest road closures.
