Road closure not being used, also works ongoing on Hendon Wood Lane, Arkley and St Albans Road at the same time impacting on ability for traffic to move - kindly implement a schedule so that not so many routes are closed at once!
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. Please plan ahead and leave more time for your journey.
