Too many roadworks around Edgware.

Reported via mobile in the Roadworks category anonymously at 23:53, Tuesday 10 May 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3517086.

Tfl have poorly planned the roadworks they are undertaking. The A41 Edgware way has a lane closed in both directions and now the A5 in Edgware have temporary lights and roadworks have popped up around Edgware causing a ridiculous amount of traffic. What should take a 10 minute drive to my children's school tool us an hour this morning. It is impacting hundreds of thousands of lives and simply can't carry on like this for the months tfl have stated. Tfl NEED to fix this problem URGENTLY!

  • Thank you for taking the time to report this to us. It is much appreciated. The temporary road layout will change as the works progress. Information on these changes can be found on the TfL website. The optimum method of working would be to close the road entirely to all vehicles and pedestrians in order to complete the works quickly to assure the quality of the repairs and provide a safe work area. However this would involve diverting pedestrians and vehicles over long distances for several weeks. Therefore, in order to ensure the needs of all road users are balanced, we will be closing the road in phases to complete the works.

    Closures on the approach to the roundabout are required to ensure that traffic into the roundabout doesn’t exceed the safe capacity of the exit routes. Removing the closure’s has been explored but it is not considered safe or to provide any benefit as it will reallocate the congestion elsewhere. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused while the works are on going.
