Taking too long

Reported via desktop in the Roadworks category anonymously at 16:35, Thursday 19 August 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2946375.

Why is this taking 3 weeks. Everytime I pass (after a long wait for the traffic lights) THERE IS NOBODY THERE DOING ANYTHING! Just a big hole. There was no need for a contra flow on the A21. Pedestrians could use the pavement 2 meters away on the other side of the hedge in Broke Farm Drive! You are just wasting motorists time and creating UNNECESSARY POLLUTION! These works appear totally unsupervised!

  • Thank you for taking the time to report this to us. It is much appreciated. Latest update. UKPN have had emergency works at this location and set up temporary lights. Unfortunately during their excavation they encountered gas and so had to hand over to SGN to trace and rectify an escape. This is still ongoing and I have spoken to both SGN and UKPN this morning for latest updates. SGN should be complete later today for the repair to the leaking main then will hand back to UPKN to continue. UKPN have a few days work left including reinstatement so realistically this will continue into the weekend. Regarding the safety issued raised below we immediately made UKPN aware of this issue once discovered and have instructed UKPN to close the entrance to Broke Farm Drive southbound fully to prevent the rat running parallel to the A21. Access is still maintained via the other end for residents. The temporary lights also as instructed by us are being manually controlled for the times 0700-1900 by UKPN.

    State changed to: Fixed
