I have experienced 2 near miss accidents this week due to slip road lane closure. During rush hour periods stationary traffic trying to exit the motorway is being held in lane 1

  • Please can the slip road closure sign be moved further back to give drivers more warning, it is right next to the slip road and the amount of near crashes i have witnessed is very dangerous. drivers need more time to be made aware when driving at 60 - 70 mph

  • Thank you for your report concerning a slip road lane closure at this location.

    These lane restrictions are in place whilst our structures team carry out necessary survey works. Unfortunately, this layout cannot be changed, as moving the taper may lead to other issues for our customers.

    We’ve requested advisory signs to be put in place “possible stationary traffic” and “queues likely”. We do hope to be able to remove these lane restriction ASAP, once the structures team have completed their surveys.

    We will continue to monitor this and will arrange any further mitigation if the situation changes.

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