Non stop works and poor traffic management
Reported via iOS in the Roadworks category anonymously at 11:15, Sun 4 October 2020
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2324188.
The temporary traffic lights have made this corner even more dangerous and unpleasant. The stop sign is around the corner before the junction but the traffic light is after it some distance away. Cars leaving and entering Sunderland road block the road or miss the lights all together and cars that pass the stop sign as the lights change block the turning or cars approaching from opposite direction.
Also these are not emergency works, so should not be working all weekend as they have been for over a month now.
Thank you for your report. This will now be investigated by our team, where possible and appropriate action will be taken. We will aim to update you in progress within 10 days
