A car and a motorbike collided near junction seven southbound at around 11.35am today (Thursday, August 31).

The motorcyclist, a man in his 50s from Nottingham, sadly died at the scene.

Officers closed the road while so they could investigate but it has now re-opened.

Traffic Advice

Drivers are advised to allow extra time for their journeys and seek alternative routes where possible this afternoon after a serious incident on the southbound M11 in Essex has caused the road to be closed for several hours.

The southbound M11 has been closed between junctions 7, for Harlow, and 6, for the M25, following a serious collision involving a lorry and a motorcycle shortly before 12 noon today (31 August).

While the southbound carriageway is closed, traffic is diverted to follow the solid circle symbol and should exit the M11 at junction 7, take the A414 to Harlow, continue to the A10 interchange. Traffic should then take first exit to A10 and continue south to join M25 at junction 27.

Highways England is assisting Essex Police to manage traffic and keep drivers informed about the latest conditions while they carry out their collision investigation. Once the investigation has concluded, the team will be able to clear the carriageway, carry out any necessary repairs and recover vehicles.

The road will be reopened as soon as it is safe to do so but severe delays are likely to be ongoing through this evening’s peak period.

Drivers can check travel conditions before setting out on journeys. Highways England provides live traffic information via its website at www.trafficengland.com, local and national radio travel bulletins, electronic road signs and mobile apps.
