Westbound cycle lane and left hand traffic lane on Saint Asaph St between Ferry Rd and Madras St have been coned off due to building work at 262 Saint Asaph St. Unfortunately there is no advance warning for either cyclists or drivers that the cycle lane is closed and that cyclists will be forced across merging vehicles into the right hand lane (although Whites Traffic Management have placed gated Lane Closed signs to inform drivers that a traffic lane is closed ahead!). The traffic management plan (TMP #28088 on http://www.tfc.govt.nz/current-conditions/roadworks/) lists the impacts as including “Cyclists Affected”, but don’t seem to then actually provide for cyclists as required by CTOC’s Local Operating Procedures (Section 19 of http://tmpforchch.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/CTOC-LOP_v4_FINAL_20140919.pdf).
