John Paulding has sent in the following information pertinent to anyone planning to travel to the Nationals via the M11 or A505.
Big problem! There is a big problem and I mean a 32 story problem with a flashing lights on the top and a sign that says "Big Problem"!
The matrix sign in the A505/M11 junction is saying "Cereals 2016 - 15th- 16th June". The last time this show was on was two years ago and all the traffic was gridlocked for 8 miles into Cambridge. This will make it impossible to get out of Duxford on the morning of the Nats. I think I'm going to have to find somewhere to stay on Saturday night in St Ives. Any ideas?
We also need to warn anyone coming from East of Cambridge to avoid J10 on the M11 and probably the whole area. Best skirt Cambridge on the A14.
Sorry I didn't know about this before but we didn't get any warning or traffic plans two years ago either. This makes air show days look like waiting for a traffic light to change
See you on Tuesday.
I suggest that you check travel news before or en route, OR travel north using the A1(M). The event http://www.cerealsevent.co.uk/ is actually 15/16th June, but there could still be 'overspill' as they empty the site.
