Connetics worksite on Main Road going past Shag Rock has signs blocking the eastbound and westbound cycle lanes (one in each direction). Eastbound, the initial Roadworks sign has been placed right up against the edge of the cycle lane, giving cyclists the option of passing it on the right (in the general traffic lane with the cars and buses) or on the left (although if they try going to the left of the sign base located 50m up the road they will crash into the sign placed there next to the base – see FixMyStreet #5472). Why not move it to the left, closer to the rail at the side of the road? It will still be visible to approaching road users and will leave enough space for cyclists to pass it safely. Westbound, the initial Roadworks sign has been placed in the middle of the cycle lane on the long straight out of Sumner. This placement totally blocks the cycle lane, forcing cyclists into the general traffic lane or onto the dirt shoulder to the left. There is plenty of space to the left of the cycle lane to locate the sign (looks like it will fit left of the yellow no-stopping lines), where it would still be visible to approaching road users and would leave enough space for cyclists to pass it safely.
