Roadworks at Charlie Brown roundabout

Reported via mobile in the Roadworks category by Eric Lazarus at 14:57, Friday 20 May 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3539672.

Works have been ongoing since early Feb including a closed lane onto the westbound north circular. The signs put out then said work would finish by 30 April. 3 weeks later there is no sign of the project finishing. In fact it’s difficult to know what is being done as there is rarely any sign of anyone working in the area. I have spoken to Redbridge Council and they say it’s nothing to do with them as it’s a TfL project.

Please can you respond to advise when the work will finish as it’s a nuisance at rush hour and has gone on too long with no end in sight.

  • Thank you for taking the time to report this to us. It is much appreciated. The closure on the Westbound North Circular entry slip is in place to support the bearing replacement works on the M11 viaduct which runs at height at that location. Unfortunately these works have hit several unforeseen issues the biggest of which required design alterations and further approvals. This has added significant time to the original intended programme.

    The lane closure is required for all phases of the work for safety reasons. It not only allows for safe access for the workforce but also keeps the public safe from works activities often undertaken at height and protects the structure whilst changes are being undertaken with temporary works.

    Apologies for the inconvenience caused. The site team are exploring all options to complete the works as quickly as possible and minimise the disruption. Works are currently expected to finish late August and communications on the project status are expected to be released shortly.

    Kind regards Transport for London
