Roadworks have taken over half the road width on Antigua St immediately south of the St Asaph St intersection, with north & southbound lanes squeezed into what’s left. This includes forcing motorists into the northbound cycle lane & forcing cyclists out of the souuthbound cycle lane into the narrow general traffic lane. Unfortunately there is no advance warning of cyclists merging on any of the 3 approaches (Antigua St north & south and St Asaph St east). There is a 30kph TSL in place, but on the southern approach it is located after motorists have already been forced into the cycle lane, so not really very effective. Since there is so much wrong & dangerous about this site, maybe CTOC could come out and do an audit (after all, it is their job to “ensur(e) that all TTM measures are in accordance with CoPTTM”). And maybe the Police could explain what actions they took regarding these dangerous & non-compliant (with CoPTTM) works underway immediately outside the Christchurch Central Police Station. This should include an explanation from the police officer(s) in the marked Police car JSR170 which turned into the Police Station from Antigua St south about 9:25pm. And an explanation from the police officer(s) in the marked Police van CQK231 which turned into these works on Antigua St south from St Asaph St east about 9:30pm.
