Local road closures

Essential maintenance work is being carried out on the A11 between Babraham and Six Mile Bottom. The work includes resurfacing, barrier replacement and sign renewals. It will ensure that the A11 remains safe and serviceable for years to come. Work began on Monday 6 March and is expected to be complete by January 2024.

Our next phase of work will take place on the A11 southbound between Granta Park and Stumps Crossfrom Thursday 30 November 2023 to Wednesday 24 January 2024. Work will be carried out on weeknights between 8pm and 6am.

To carry out the work safely, we need to close the A11 between Granta park and Stumps Cross, one direction at a time.

Closures and diversions

While the A11 is closed, traffic will be diverted via the A14 and M11 (Strategic diversion). Any local traffic wishing to reach the villages around Sawston will be diverted as follows:

  • Exit the A11 at Fourwentways to follow the A1307 Babraham Road northwest towards Cambridge, then turn left onto Hinton Way. At Great Shelford, turn left and follow the A1301 south towards the A505. Take the A505 west to reach the M11 at junction 10. (Map 1)

M11 junction 10 slip road resurfacing

Separate to the A11 work, we will also be carrying out resurfacing on the M11 junction 10 southbound exit slip road (leading to the A505 and Duxford Imperial War Museum).

To carry out this work safely, we will need to close the M11 overnight as follows:

  • M11 southbound between junctions 11 (Trumpington) and 10 (Duxford), Tuesday 28 November, between 10pm and 5am.
  • M11 junction 10 southbound exit slip road, from Wednesday 29 November to Friday 1 December, between 10pm and 5am.

During these closures, southbound traffic will be directed to exit the M11 at junction 11 (Trumpington), take the A10 southwest to Royston, then the A505 to rejoin the M11 at junction 10. (Map 2)
