Birchanger Roadworks

Essential repair and resurfacing work is to start today on the M11 junction 8, Birchanger Green Roundabout bridges.

This will involve full weekend closures, weather conditions permitting.

Closures and diversions

To carry out the work safely, National Highways will need to close the M11 junction 8 bridges. Only one of the bridges will be shut at a time to reduce the impact on local road users and those needing access to Stansted Airport and Birchanger Green Services.

Details of the closures and diversion routes are detailed below:
