When a node is set with accessRoles and if somehow user reach this node and not matching the role then user see a error like "An error occurred while trying to call TYPO3\Neos\Controller\Frontend\NodeController->showAction(). Error for node: Could not convert array to Node object because the node "/sites/xxx/xxx/xxx" does not exist." on a white page.

Currently I am handling this with an Aspect to catch this validation error and redirect user to page which shows access denied message OR just add a flash message. But a better way could be there with the core itself.

     * Intercepts NodeController->errorAction()
     * When a Node is not accessible node is not found error is displayed.
     * This function will see if certain error number is found and then redirect
     * user to login form and block call of errorAction(). For other errors errorAction()
     * is called normally.
     * @Flow\Around("method(TYPO3\Neos\Controller\Frontend\NodeController->errorAction())")
     * @param \TYPO3\Flow\Aop\JoinPointInterface $joinPoint The current join point
     * @return void
    public function redirectIfNodeInaccessible(\TYPO3\Flow\Aop\JoinPointInterface $joinPoint) {
        /** @var $nodeController \TYPO3\Neos\Controller\Frontend\NodeController */
        $nodeController = $joinPoint->getProxy();
        /** @var $arguments \TYPO3\Flow\Mvc\Controller\Arguments */
        $arguments = ObjectAccess::getProperty($nodeController, 'arguments', TRUE);
        $nodeInaccessibleError = FALSE;
        $message = '';
        foreach ($arguments->getValidationResults()->getFlattenedErrors() as $propertyPath => $errors) {
            foreach ($errors as $error) {
                /** @var $error \TYPO3\Flow\Error\Error */
                if ($error->getCode() === 1370502328) {
                    $nodeInaccessibleError = TRUE;
                    $message = $error->getMessage();
        if ($nodeInaccessibleError) {
            // redirect user
            // or add flash message

        } else {
            // proceed to executing errorAction normally
