Slip road, one lane closed for no reason. Forcing vehicles to merge from 2 lanes into 1 lane, this just before traffic lights on roundabout where 3 lanes are available. There is no reason to do that. This cause congestion, traffic pollutions and delays even on A40.

Slip road, one lane closed for no reason. Forcing vehicles to merge from 2 lanes into 1 lane, this just before traffic lights on roundabout where 3 lanes are available. There is no reason to do that. This cause congestion, traffic pollutions and delays even on A40. It's more than 3 months now. Public money are wasted on uncompetent administration.
Thank you for taking the time to report this to us. Safety is our number one priority, which is why we have a programme of risk-based inspections for all structures across our road network. A recent inspection of the north-west slip road from the A40 Westway to A3220 West Cross Route has shown that a precautionary closure is needed to allow for further investigation and repair work to take place. A short diversion will be in place during the closure. We’re sorry for any disruption and I’d like to thank people travelling through the area for their patience while this important repair work takes place. Additional information • Repair work will affect traffic travelling eastbound on the A40 intending to turn off the Westway to continue their journey southbound on the A3220 (towards Holland Park Roundabout) • There will be a short diversion when the closure is in place - traffic will exit the A40 Westway at the A219 Wood Lane slip road and immediately re-join the A40 Westway by crossing the signalised junction with Wood Lane • Signage will be in place on the wider road network to alert and guide motorists • Repairs may take up to 18 months, we will know more following further investigations If the issue persists, please raise another report or contact our customer services team on 0343 222 1234.
