Currently there is road works on Linwood ave where it meets Avonside drive/Woodham rd. The road work warning signs have been set in Avonside drive in the cycle lane (heading east). The speed limit continues to be 50kmh and it is on a blind corner. It seems possible that a car going around the bend could hit a cyclist moving out into the road to avoid the signs. Changes: > Find the road company who put up the road works and educate them about the difference between curbs and cycle lanes. and either Remove signs onto road way, to allow cycle lane to be used. or Drop speed to 30kmh and put up extreme care cyclists merging signs. Emailed the CCC 21 st of Feb still no reply Talked with Road workers won't change it till council tells them they have too.
