Major roadworks all around apex corner and a41

Reported via mobile in the Roadworks category anonymously at 11:04, Wednesday 11 May 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3517927.

The current roadworks are causing such an obscene amount of traffic that it is causing actual anxiety, increased stress and is very unhealthy for body and mind. Not everyone has the hours free to just sit. All the surrounding roads are totally clogged. I understand the work is important but perhaps it could be worked on for longer hours to complete earlier. Alternatively can it be removed now and then resumed AFTER these months maybe in the summer holidays.

Updates

  • 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 taking place.

    State changed to: Fixed
