Roadworks causing traffic problem

Hi, Thames Water is digging up the road at the Allen Road/ Shakspeare Walk junction, and has blocked Allen Road. Shakspeare Walk is a one-way road. I've seen several cars ignore the diversion signs and the no-entry sign and drive the wrong way up Shakspeare Walk to avoid the road block. This is extremely dangerous to traffic and pedestrians, who expect this to be a one-way street. The road will be blocked for another six working days. Please can LBH or TFL do something ASAP to improve the signage and avert an accident? Thanks

  • The problem was fixed, but no thanks to the Council or the contractor. The work finished, so the roadworks disappeared. Thankfully, no one got hurt by people driving illegally up the one-way street.
