Roadworks with no advance warning signs
Reported in the Roadworks category anonymously at 00:55, Wednesday 29 April 2020
Sent to TfL 5 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS2099988.
Turning right from Lane 3 (of 4) of Telford Road (A406 Eastbound) into Lane 1 of Bowes Road (continuation of the A406) I almost immediately encountered a set of roadworks blocking Lane 1. The only warning of this was a vehicle with a flashing "Keep Right" arrow on the rear, with no signage present on the A406 before the junction.
As there was a vehicle in Lane 2 passing mine, I was forced to undertake an emergency stop to avoid colliding with the protection vehicle.
Thank you for your report. This will now be investigated by our team, where possible and appropriate action will be taken. We will still try to update on the progress within 10 days, however in the current circumstances it may not be possible to do so while we focus on keeping our roads safe for critical workers as they to continue to support London
