Unnecessary daytime lane closure on A4142 at Cowley

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 19:16, Tue 12 March 2019

Sent to Oxford City Council and Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

The outside lane is closed all day affecting rush hour traffic and adding significantly to travel time and pollution in the area due to queuing traffic. The notices at the roadside advise works are taking place overnight between 2000hrs and 0500hrs. Why does the lane need to remain closed during the daytime when there are no operational road works? Surely the bollards can be moved to the centre reservation and replaced for the overnight works?
