Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

Travelling at around 9pm last evening, the motorway was dark. The roadworks reduced the lanes from 3 down to 1 (the inside lane). The roadworks were in darkness , with no lighting at all. Cars were bunching around the final 20- 30 metres to pull into the inside lane, this happening in the dark increased the risk of crashes.
