Two sign bases with stands (but no signs) blocking westbound cycle lane on Pages Rd (outside 144 & 160 Pages Rd). No sign of the actual signs, so would appear that temporary traffic management provider has taken the signs away when they were no longer required but for some reason has left the bases, stands and sandbags. For both sign stands, there is an open grass area on far side of footpath, which has good sightlines for approaching traffic – why not place signs there away from the cycle lane? It would also be more consistent with the requirements of C3.3.2 (Positioning of signs) in the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management, and in particular “sign bases must not be left in place, without signs attached, in a manner that will be a hazard to any road user, including pedestrians and cyclists”.
