Temporary signs for roadworks at jct 8 A1

Reported via mobile in the Sign issue category anonymously at 12:24, Tuesday 28 September 2021

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

There was no sign on the diversion route down the southbound off slip telling drivers which way to go for A1 South. The on slip just said "Works Traffic Only". I took it because I could see no way out of the junction. This was obviously correct as many vehicles followed.

  • Thank you for contacting National Highways.

    Please can you confirm if the closure you are referring to is for Junction 6 (where the pin is placed) or for Junction 8 (which you have stated in your title)?

    Once we know which this is we will be able to investigate further as to these signs.

    Kind regards National Highways
