What does this British road sign mean?

BBC Radio Solent tweeted a picture of a road closure (apparently near Winchester):

In the background, there is a road sign with two red lights on and a yellow “symbol”. What does it mean?


Looks like a “Temporary lane closure”.

The situation in Winchester, you referred to, supports this.
