Question

Whilst it is good to see that the A406 Staples Corner flyover maintenance temporary full closures were completed early, why could this work not have been done in the school holidays when traffic is quieter so as to minimise disruption at this busy junction?

TfL normally aims to undertake disruptive roadworks during school and public holidays when traffic levels are typically lower. However, this is not the case on the A406 where there is very little difference in traffic volumes during the school holidays.

Following careful consideration TfL decided to undertake the works in September in order to complete them before a number of other planned works and events take place in the coming months.
