M11 J8 Stansted Airport Access

Scheme outline

A sense of deja vu for many people, as this scheme is set to modify M11 junction 8 at Stansted to improve access to the airport. A scheme with an identical aim was completed in December 2003, adding free-flowing links between the M11 south and A120.

This scheme aims to improve connections between the airport and the M11 to the north. It involves the construction of a new junction 8b on the motorway, linked to the existing junction 8 roundabout by collector-distributor roads, and a new link road to the airport from there. The access from the A120 will also be reconfigured to make way for the new link road.

This scheme has been cancelled. We're no longer accepting updates or changes to this page.
