Unnecessary coning

Reported via desktop in the Roadworks category anonymously at 23:05, Sunday 22 May 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3543503.

Numerous people have already reported this to you including a 2500 signature petition yet you have done nothing to improve this diabolical mess. You have coned off the outside lane of the A1 entering Apex from the north saying that it is to ensure that traffic entering the roundabout doesn't exceed the safe capacity of the exit routes. Then why is the traffic unable to move a lot of the time when it has a green light, It seems to me that you haven't altered the traffic light phasing to accomodate the new traffic pattern. Whoever set this up seems very inexperienced because a huge mistake was made with the closing of Pike Road. Also none of your staff have marked the coning off of the A1 on the website or the public.londonworks website which further points to incompetence.

  • 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 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 ease congestion in the area. Please plan ahead and leave more time for your journey.
