Approaching the Tuam St intersection with Manchester St from the south, the left hand lane has been closed off with temporary bollards to stop vehicles turning left into Tuam St. Unfortunately this left lane develops from the northbound cycle lane, forcing cyclists into the narrow through lane. Given that there is a cycle lane on the northern side of the intersection, why are cyclists forced into a lane with cars and trucks solely to get past this temporary traffic management? Why not move the bollards 1.5m to the left of the lane marking, thereby continuing the cycle lane through the intersection whilst still effectively stopping vehicles from turning left?
