Road Closure Presented Presented As Emergency When It Was Planned

Reported via desktop anonymously at 12:44, Tue 17 November 2020

Sent to Warwickshire County Council less than a minute later

The road has been closed without notice for resurfacing work, there are no approach signs, the only signage is at the closure which reads 'Temporary Construction 15 Minute Delay'. The sign is inaccurate as the workers informed me that the delay would be at least another hour and the road had been closed for some time, This works were allegedly emergency resurfacing work, this is clearly untrue as the work had been planned and no notice given. After waiting without further information the traffic is turning around and having to detour for several miles. HS2 should be held accountable for their blatant disregard for local residents convenience, surely there are penalty clauses for this type of closure?
