Hello. Is it this set on the corner of Parliament Square and Whitehall (Bridge Street is straight ahead, Whitehall to the left of the lights)? If so, it appears our engineer DID indeed correct it last week but I assume it must've been knocked again since.

On the A102 Blackwall Tunnel Southern Approach, lane 1 is blocked on the Blackwall Lane Flyover due to a broken down van. Police are on scene. It's on the brow of the Flyover so beware as you approach. Traffic is moving well through this stretch though.

Also on the A406, there's a broken down vehicle in lane 1 westbound, between Waterworks Corner & Crooked Billet Underpass. Police are with it but only lanes 2 & 3 are open at present, causing westbound tailbacks.

Update - recovery has just taken the broken down vehicle away so we now have both lanes open at Hook. Congestion remains from Esher Common but this should now start to ease.

The motorways are managed by Highways England (rather than TfL). Their feed shows there was a collision on that stretch but it's just cleared.

Yes, it is. Normal two-boat service. Image shows the Dame Vera Lynn just leaving dock.

Hello. Sorry for the delay in responding. We were made aware of this fault around the time of your tweet. It was flagged with our signals engineers immediately and worked on overnight. The traffic signals returned to normal operation early this morning. Thanks.

I do take your point but it can be very difficult to ensure that such info is accurate, avoiding misinformation. We try to schedule tweets for the larger planned stuff and will try to do this more often. Btw, Changing the Guard is now every day ()

The traffic seems to join with the inbound traffic on The Highway. The traffic lights there are balanced (ie: doing what they should be doing) but we'll see if there are any faults and/or adjust them where possible.

Nothing's changed with regards to the traffic signals and we're not aware of any works in the area. Looks busy but you've got the bus lane reducing it to one lane and then a couple of sets of lights at Stroud Green Road / Rock Street. We'll keep an eye on it.
