Main works set to get underway to upgrade M11 Junction 8 

Improvements planned to meet future demand at the junction and reduce congestion to and from key destinations.

The next phase of a project to improve safety and reduce congestion on the M11 at Junction 8 near Bishops Stortford is set to start construction this month. 

Following completion of preliminary investigatory work, the existing A120 roundabout will now be removed ahead of the construction of a new traffic-light controlled junction.

To support the improvement works, contractor John Sisk & Son will implement traffic management for work on the roundabout and a revised road layout, including a lane closure running on the westbound approach to the A120 Roundabout.  

Cllr Lesley Wagland OBE, Essex County Council Cabinet Member for Economic Renewal, Infrastructure and Planning, said: “These important improvements will help meet future demand at the junction, while reducing congestion to and from key destinations.

“Throughout the works we will look to minimise disruption wherever possible and we thank drivers for their patience while the works take place.”

The M11 Junction 8 scheme, led by Essex County Council, will improve access between the M11 and A120, as well as London Stansted and nearby communities. It will also reduce congestion and improve capacity on the M11 Junction 8 exit slip road and the A120. 

In addition, a toucan crossing will cross the A120 and new footways and cycleways will be installed, making it easier and safer to walk and cycle.

Absolute waste of money! "Improvements" just bring more traffic which brings more traffic triggering the next "improvement" and so on. Investigating in Park and Ride and very low cost frequent quality public transport, cycleways and light tram systems are the best way to go.
