Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 2383310.

Roadworks on southbound M1 beginning just before junction 29 have absolutely zero warnings of lane closure. No illuminated signage or yellow tin signs. Suddenly only lane 4 is open. It is dark, windy and raining and the cones appear from a distance to be across the exit slip only. They are not. Accident waiting to happen.
