Lots of major routes at the same time!!
Reported via mobile in the Roadworks category anonymously at 07:30, Sat 14 May 2022
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3524762.
The A1 and the A41 both have lanes shut at the same time causing absolute chaos. Who planned this farce? It seems someone with no common sense. It’s impossible to get from Elstree/borehamwood into Mill Hill without it doubling the journey time. Not seen a single person working when work should now be around the clock to get it done asap. And all done at a time when Hendon Wood Lane also shut!! This could have been done during covid when everyone was at home?

Thank you for taking the time to report this to us. It is much appreciated. These closures are required as we need to complete essential maintenance work on the A41 Edgware Way bridge (over the M1 and National Rail tracks). This essential maintenance work is vital to ensuring that the road network and infrastructure here can continue to operate safely for years to come.
The works commenced on the 1st April until summer 2022. Construction will be completed in stages to help minimise impacts, and will consist of a series of lane only and directional full closures of the A41 and overnight lane closures on the M1. For full details see tfl.gov.uk/edgware-way. All temporary changes to roads in the area have been designed to support the rapid completion of this work For short journeys in and around the area it is likely to be quicker to walk or cycle, where possible. If your journey is east/west across London and you do not need local access the M25 can be used as an alternative. If you are travelling to or from central London, the A1 and the A10 can be used as alternatives. These routes are also anticipated to be busier because of additional traffic caused by the works. We have since the works commenced reopened Pike Road to help with the local traffic. Please plan ahead and leave more time for your journey.
