TfL ref: FMS3522706.
Dangerous gridlock traffic stopping all vehicular transport from Hendon - Greyhound Hill to Apex Corner, and impacting side streets such as Page Street, High Barnet etc with gridlock as well. Very dangerous.
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 being carried out.
