Work To Improve The M11 Trumpington Interchange Is Set To Begin

Work to improve Junction 11 on the M11 - the interchange for Trumpington, the Addenbrookes Hospital and villages along the southern A10 corridor - is set to begin next month.

Cambridgeshire County Council will be carrying out the work which will include widening and re-aligning some of the slip roads, installing traffic lights and re-surfacing the roundabout.

The works will start on Monday 17 September and are expected to be completed by Christmas.

Working hours will generally start after the morning rush hour at 10am to 4.30pm to minimise disruption while some overnight closures will be necessary to resurface the roundabout but these will be advertised via notices and diversion routes nearer the time.

During the works some lane narrowing on the roundabout will be necessary, but again this will be kept to a minimum.

Councillor Ian Bates, Cabinet member for Growth and Planning at Cambridgeshire County Council, said: "We are set to begin essential work to bring Junction 11 on the M11 up to standard as well as prepare it to cater for the higher expected volumes of traffic expected in the future. This growth will help both employment and housing developments in the south Cambridge area over the next few years as our county continues to be a place where people want to live and work. We have tried to plan the work to minimum the disruption to commuters with much of the activity taking place outside rush hour or at night but we apologise for any delays which people suffer."
