Unnecessary temporary traffic management unsafe for cyclists

Southbound cycle lane on Colombo St approaching and going through Somerfield St intersection has been coned off forcing cyclists into the general traffic lane. Although there is an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign approaching here, there is no work going on or anything actually affecting the cycle lane – forcing cyclists to “merge” with the cars, trucks & buses seems unnecessary. Why doesn’t the temporary traffic management contractor open up the cycle lane by removing the cones & Keep Right arrows when they are not needed?
