Misleading lane closure signs

On A1 southbound between jct 61 and 60 there is lane closure signage but no actual lane closure. This is causing unnecessary tailbacks. Thanks.

  • Thank you for your patience whilst our inspector reviewed your report. We are currently working in the area on night shift. During the daytime the traffic management (signs etc) are "closed" or lowered, however it appears that, from your comments, the day you travelled through this section of road, this may not have been the case. I have passed your comments onto the project manager and the traffic management sub contactors and to my knowledge there have been no further instances.
