Roadworks lasting twelve weeks have started on a busy stretch of the A406 North Circular.

Transport for London (TfL) started carrying out repairs to the carriageway and road surfaces between Waterworks roundabout and Charlie Browns roundabout on Friday. 

Work will take place on the eastbound carriageway from July 25 to September 18 and on the westbound carriageway from September 19 until mid-October.

The majority of work will take place overnight during the week, between 10pm and 8am, with lane restrictions and slip road closures on Saturday during the day and on Monday and Tuesday nights. 

Drivers are advised to regularly check before they travel as Transport for London have said closure times will vary throughout the project.     

Bus route 123, which runs on the A406 Southend Road, will also be diverted from the start of the work until the end of service on certain nights.

Garrett Emmerson, chief operating officer for surface transport at TfL, said: "While there is obviously no perfect time to close an essential road for maintenance, this vital work will ensure that the road can remain in a good condition for years to come.

"Once completed, it will reduce the need for future work, while ensuring traffic can continue to flow on a quieter, smoother carriageway."

So why does all of the signage at Waterworks corner say that the work will be carried out on Fridays and Saturdays. With full closures during the night and lane closures on Saturday daytime.

Surely the Guardian hasn't made a mistake here !!!!!!!

From TFL's website. Why on earth have the Guardian published something totally different from the official info :(

From Friday 25 July, work is taking place at weekends from 22:00 Friday until 06:00 Monday. As part of these works, the A406 Southend Road is closed between Waterworks roundabout and Charlie Brown's roundabout from 22:00 Friday until 06:00 Saturday for ten weeks. Access to the M11 slip roads will also be affected during these works and traffic will be diverted via a signed diversion route. There will also be weekday overnight work from 22:00-06:00 during this period, which will be coordinated to avoid clashes with the work currently taking place at the Fore Street tunnel. Working at night ensures we can complete these works as quickly and with as little disruption as possible.
