Missing / Unsuitable Diversion Signage for Works ref: NOMS-302562

Reported via desktop in the Roadworks (NH) category anonymously at 00:11, Fri 21 April 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4468543.

Work is currently being carried out over night between J46 and J47 of the M1 northbound and is due to continue till the 27th.

A fully signed diversion route should have been provided by LCC along the A63 but this is missing and though it not NH's responsibly to place the signs along the A63 (unless you have obtained permission) it is your responsibly to make sure a suitably signed diversion route is in place before enacting a closure.

Because the above is missing, you have resulted to using emergency diversion symbols which are not acceptable on their own. There a few symbols that are missing due to the recent sign replacement for ELOR works. It is especially not clear that traffic needs to take a right turn at the J46 roundabout as the symbol is missing from the new sign.

Due to the nature of the roundabout layout traffic unfamiliar with the area may continue to follow signs for The NORTH M1 towards the the north of J46 (Dumbbell Junction) which is currently a high risk junction due to the on going works and yet to be activated traffic lights.
