The London to Cambridge road has been rated the best motorway in England in Transport Focus research covering the year to March 2020.
In the 2019/20 Strategic Roads User Survey the motorway from London and Cambridge had the highest overall satisfaction of 92 per cent.
The best ‘A’ road was at the other end of the country, the A66 route across the Pennines from Scotch Corner to Penrith.
This is the second year of the independent watchdog’s new survey looking at the views of over 8000 road users about their last journey on a motorway or major ‘A’ road managed by Highways England.
Transport Focus chief executive Anthony Smith said: "In the 12 months before the coronavirus lockdown, more than three out of four drivers were satisfied with their journey on England’s motorways and major ‘A’ roads – but some roads score much better than others.
“As drivers return to the roads it is vital that management of roadworks is looked at. With just 68 per cent of drivers satisfied this is clearly an area for Highways England to keep focussing on.”
Commenting on an M11 journey a driver said: “Easy way to go, everything went well, no roadworks or hold-ups.”
