M11 overnight lane closures between Junctions 7 and 8

A SERIES of overnight motorway lane closures will be in place on the M11 this February to enable works taking place on the new Junction 7a at Harlow.

With the scheme due to be completed in the coming months, the latest closures will enable the installation of the motorway technology infrastructure.

The works are due to take place overnight to minimise disruption with  the M11 Southbound closed between Junction 8 (Bishops Stortford/Stansted Airport) and Junction 7 (Harlow) between the hours of 9pm and 5am on the 7th,8th,9th,10th and 11th February and again on the 21st February.

The Southbound diversion route will be signposted for the A120, A10, A414 where vehicles can re-join the M11 at Junction 7.

Northbound the closure will be in place between the hours of 9pm and 5am on the 14th, 15th,16th,17th, 18th and again on the 22nd February.

The Northbound diversion route will be signposted for the A414, A10, A120 where vehicles can re-join the M11 at Junction 8.

The diversion signs for the southbound closure at Stanstead is appalling/non existant Came back in to Stanstead tonight. No warnings until you arrive at the southbound junction & no diversion signs

Badly managed. Insufficient and incorrect information.

I came home last night on M11 northbound. I was fuming because after the A414 the diversion signs disappeared. This is appalling! What would have taken 10 minutes between junctions 7 & 8 took over an hour. I am disgusted. If the signs had been in place and clearly marked, the journey, however long it took, would have been less stressful.

The road closer times that are stated are clearly wrong.closed all weekend of the 26/27th. Adding so much time to the journey.

This weekend is the second weekend that the M11 is completely closed, there is no information on line nor around the affected area. How many more weekends will it be closed? How about telling local residents?

After driving from The Hague in the Netherlands, left Harwich ferry with Google Maps saying 3 hours to Notts. Left A120 to get M11 northbound to find it shut at about 8.30pm. Followed diversion signs until they disappeared. On my own so difficult to navigate as Google Maps kept taking me back to M11. With closures on A1 and M1 north, journey took me 6 hours, with heavy traffic and roadworks on diversion roads. Very disappointed with my home country.

M11 closed between Harlow and bishops Stortford,No diversion signs to get to bishops Stortford. It made my journey home very stressful as I don’t know the areas around Harlow. Very badly managed. It took me ages too get to bishops Stortford.

Heading down the M11 on Saturday 5th, March around 1900, from J8 to 7, I noticed Northbound was shut for the weekend! Why? Between 8 & 7, absolutely no work was going on, no vehicles, or construction staff on the Northbound carriageway, it was all deserted. The normal weekday construction workers, don't work at the weekend anyway! Absolutely ridiculous closure and very annoying!

M11 closure between J7 and J8 on 13/03/22, what a nightmare! Our usual 1hr 40 min journey to Cambridge took 3 hours. Queued for ages to leave the motorway and then just sat in more traffic for the whole diversion. Lost the diversion signs and relied on Sat Nav for most of it.

What closures can we expect this coming weekend, i.e. 26th / 27th March?
