We received a reply stating that the works were not going to change format, which is fine, but can you please make some small changes which will improve the situation. Opening up the two blocked lanes on the approach to Apex corner, shortly after the works, removing the unnecessarily large works exit, would make a difference. There is a lane restriction around the roundabout because the A41 entrance in only one lane now, which is fine, except there is another exit off the roundabout with only one lane and drivers have been safely using that for 20 years. Removing the lane restriction around the roundabout would not be unsafe and make everyone happy. Please make these small differences to help all of us. thanks,
Hi, thank you for opening a third lane over the weekend, it made a difference to the speed of getting through the junction. Today, however, the lane that was opened over the weekend is now partially blocked. For traffic, if a lane is partially blocked then it is effectively blocked completely - it is either fully open or it is not. The workers at site must know this and it seems quite obstinate to place the cones in this way. Please keep the small improvement by fully opening the third lane.

Thank you for taking the time to report this to us. It is much appreciated. We will contact the contractors to ensure the lane is open.
