National Highways will be carrying out essential work to install a new drainage system on the M11 southbound between junction 7 and junction 6.

They plan to complete this work over 4 weeks from Friday 29 November to Friday 17 December, working weeknights only between 8pm and 6am, weather conditions permitting.

To complete this work safely, it is necessary to close lanes 1 and 2 on the M11 southbound between the junctions, but the road will remain open to traffic.
