Westbound cycle lane on Ferry Rd approaching Maronan St (Woolston) has been coned off for installation of ultrafast broadband. With no work being done on a Sunday afternoon, and no holes in the cycle lane or shoulder, and the cycle lane totally unobstructed (except for the cones), why is the cycle lane closed? (During the day on Friday the cycle lane all the way from the Rutherford St intersection to here was coned off, but most of the cones have been cleared from the cycle lane and stored on the grass strip between shoulder & footpath – why not these ones at the end of this section of cycle lane? Also, the 2 TMP’s in this area for this work (#26575 & 26580 on only refer to impacts as “Pedestrians Affected, Shoulder Closure” with no mention of cyclists being affected (by something like, say, closing the cycle lane).
