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.
