Cones to close inside lane without sufficient warning.

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

There are cones used to close the inside lane of A556 (northbound near jct for M56). Cones appear staggered but there is not sufficient warning. There is a non-illuminated sign to move into the right hand lane but this appears only after the lane has shut. It is very easy to miss the lane closure as the cones only appear in the lane after a long period of cones marking the lane edge.
