Lanes coned off at A312 Target Roundabout & All Exits

Reported via mobile in the Roadworks category anonymously at 21:09, Tuesday 9 February 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2536844.

I have been in contact with Ealing Council Highways dept and they have referred me to yourselves.

For the last three weeks (approx), there have been cones on the Target Roundabout (A312) Northolt. The outside lane of the roundabout has been coned off, significantly reducing the lanes in parts, which affects the flow of traffic. Each of the exits onto the Target Roundabout have the outside lane coned off. The reduced lanes are causing traffic to back up, with cars then blocking the roundabout causing traffic to become gridlocked, with drivers becoming frustrated.

There are no signs explaining about works, duration or who is responsible for the works.

Each morning, on m u way to work, I use the slip road from Kensington Road, Northolt to join the slip road heading West to the A40 Target Roundabout. On joining the slip road which exits the A40 West, the two lanes then go down to one lane, then back in two lanes, with the outside lane coned off. It can take around 10 minutes just to get off the slip road heading from Kensington Road.

When you enter the Target Roundabout, the outside lane is also conned off, reducing the flow of traffic as mentioned above.

In the evening on my way home from work, I exit the A40 Eastbound towards the A312 Northolt. Again, as you approach the exit to the roundabout, the outside lane on the slip road is coned off just before the lights/exit onto the roundabout, reducing the exit from 3 lanes down to one lane.

Whilst traffic should be reduced due to the pandemic with people being asked to stay at home unless their journey is absolutely essential, this is certainly not the case as there is still a significant amount of traffic on the roads.

I find it extremely unusual for there to be no signs! These works are causing a build-up of traffic and congestion.

I would appreciate understanding the reason for the works/cones!

I look forward to hearing from you.

  • I would like to confirm that the reduction in lane ar the Target Roundabout are causing traffic tail backs and no sign of ant road works actually taking place. All of which you will be able to witness as you have traffic cameras and cameras on the box junctions. Today I noticed a small road works sign showing s reduction in lanes. This has only been added in the last day But no avoidance warning notice or any sign detailing how long the road works are going to be in place for.. utterly thoughtless behaviour on behalf of yourselves and the contractor. Those of us who are Keywokers and have to go out to work would like to be able to make reasonable choices for out travel plans. Should this not be a point of interest to you, the fact that two ambulances were stuck in a huge tail back might. The cones need to be removed immediately as no work is taking place.

  • It’s still coned off by one lane on each side of the roundabout and then the centre of the roundabout causing massive delays I have never seen anyone working or any sign to indicate which company has caused this problem an update on essential work would be grateful accepted

  • Hi the cones still there and there have been few times there was a accident and road rage due to this cones on the a312 target roundabout

  • I’ve been asked to report this here as well, but seems it has already been report several weeks ago, and yet no answer but the cones remain. As mentioned it is causing gridlock traffic, despite stay at home order, which is being ignored clearly.

  • Still no update?! can you please update us please about why the cones are out and for what reason?

    Posted anonymously at 10:41, Friday 12 March 2021

  • The cones are still there. There are major traffic jams which is causing great problems for all those that must go to work as they cannot work from home. This includes all the surrounding schools. In the months they've been there, no one has been seen doing any work. These cones need to be removed as soon as possible as they are a hazard. You will be able to see some of the incidents that have occurred as a result on the cameras you have over the roundabout and entry/exit points. This really should be dealt with as a matter of urgency.

  • We are now into week 7 and still no response to what is happening since this was first raised at the beginning of February. The lack of response is almost as frustrating as the actual issue of the cones themselves.

    Posted anonymously at 15:20, Friday 12 March 2021

  • Good evening. I first reported this problem on 9/2 and received an email on 11/2 confirming this would be investigated & you an update with progress within 10 days. To date Friday 12 March there have been no updates! I can see others have added their comments to my initial report, but this doesn't seem to have prompted any action.

    I had heard through a Neighbourhood site it may be due to the Target Roundabout structure being unsafe following an RTA! If this is the case surely URGENT work is required!!! The subways are still open to pedestrians, so is the subway still safe!! There is no evidence of any work being carried out or any signs to explain the reduced traffic flow. Something need to be done URGENTLY, it's becoming increasingly frustrating and getting beyond comprehension!

  • According to the roadworks pledge on your website it states 1) always explain what is happening 2) always have activity on site We are now into week 8 and the cones still remain, no activity has been seen in all this time, no signage exposing what is going on and it is still chaos at peak times. There have been various reports since the beginning of February and still no movement or explanation as to what is happening. When can an update be expected or are you going to continue ignoring the situation.

  • Time to move the cones ourselves and relive the congestion ourselves

    Posted anonymously at 22:25, Monday 15 March 2021

  • This is most ridiculous exercise to leave cones form last 2 months without any work being taken place not only Target Roundbaout but also Polish war memorial roundabout. This is causing unnecessary traffic with waiting time of upto 15 mins in lockdown when less people are travelling.

    You have to remove this cones if NO WORK is taking place as this is causing great inconvenience to public and air pollution.

  • Is this seriously your update! this is exactly the forum for you to investigate rather than sending us to anothe contact number! cleary havnt read the problem in hand and just copied a script to close this incident.

  • You have closed this and clearly haven't reviewed the information given. People's lives are being put at risk because emergency services cannot get through quickly enough at certain times of the day.

    The local highway authority has a duty of care to maintain the safety and usability of roads that are kept at public expense. These responsibilities are set out in the Highways Act 1980, which stipulates that if a highway agent can demonstrate that they made adequate provision for upkeep and safety as can be reasonably expected, a defence will be in place for any claims made against them.

    You are breaking the law.

  • Cannot believe it has taken 8 weeks to come up with your response of it is not us. If it wasn’t your responsibility why weren’t we told this weeks ago. All you have done is wash your hands of a problem you don’t want to deal with. An absolute disgrace!!

  • Thank you for taking the time to report this to us. The original Lane 3 closure was installed on the day of the accident, 23/01/21. Following approvals of all design works for the temp. works, demolition and rebuilding of the affected section of retaining wall, work commenced on 22/03/21 and were completed on 06/04/21, when the TM was removed and the roundabout fully reopened. Six of these days were for the concrete curing to the required strength before the excavation within the verge could be backfilled and the temporary supports removed. All operations were managed with just a one lane closure throughout, and by encapsulating the immediate works area, pedestrians were able to continue using the SW subway unhindered, despite the close proximity of the works. You may wish to record that this whole operation was undertaken with safety as a priority, and was completed without incident or accident. It should be noted that during the period spanning these works, some unconnected resurfacing works took place to the Target slips.

    We are sorry for the delay and any inconvenience this may have caused you.
