Roadworks both directions

How you can allow 2 lanes to be closed 24/7 in both directions is beyond me. Miles and miles of queues, at peak hours especially, for no works to be taking place at all. Surely these works should be on and off every day during off peak hours?

  • Thank you for contacting Highways England.

    We have checked with TM and our Supervisor who have advised that the worst it has been is a few hundred yards at ‘peak’ time. 7.30-8.00am with maybe 5 mins delay. Yesterday we had a rolling block on at around 14.00hrs to recover a damaged sign, which could have caused additional queues. Lane closures are in place for the safety of our work force and the travelling public. Work is being carried out under the bridge which may not always be visible to the travelling public, but please be assured work is taking place through out this closure.

    If you require any further update on this issue our Customer Contact Centre is available 24 hours a day at: • 0300 123 5000
