Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3518441.
There are no roadworks being carried out yet there are lanes closed on both sides and there is gridlock traffic not moving throughout mill hill and edgware. This cannot continue for 6 weeks. Workmen should be working day and night to finish this major network of roads.
Thank you for taking the time to report this to us. It is much appreciated. This will now be investigated by our team and we will aim to update on progress within 10 days. If the issue you have reported is an emergency, we will aim to update you on progress within 24 hours

The lane closures on this stretch of the a41 as well as the roundabout are causing extreme traffic for miles around. Whilst there may be need for lane closures on the bridge, the necessity for lane closures elsewhere needs to be urgently looked at.

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 while the works are taking place.
