UPDATE: Thanks to commenter Speedicus, see in comments below, I now learn that it’s only a overnight road closure – SEE HERE – from 8.0pm to 6.0am. Why couldn’t they say so?
The road works creating a new island at the junction of the B311 Red Road, Upper Chobham Road, and the Maultway is causing traffic delays. Yesterday from the queue at S Bends on Red Road I waited 10 minutes till I could to cross over the road works.
A 10 minute delay I can handle, a road closure to two weeks I can’t.
A two week road closure, where did I learn about that. Well, it’s all very odd. Yesterday I saw a warning sign on the Maultway – coming from the A30 – stating that the road would be closed for two weeks from 15-4-2019. Today, when I went to photograph the sign, it wasn’t there.
Have they changed their minds, or was it an error? Whatever. Even thinking about closing the roads around the road works for any length of time is unacceptable.
