On SH74 Dyers road there is an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign approaching Linwood Ave southbound, and has been for over a week. However, the cycle lane is not affected by any works, as cones have been moved to the kerb and the two “Keep Right” signs have been (presumably) moved off the road to the grass verge (unless it is considered necessary to remind drivers & cyclists to keep off the grass!). There is a slight bend in Dyers Rd after the “Cyclists Merging” sign, so drivers (& cyclists) can’t see that the cycle lane is not closed until they get to the bend. The same situation occurs on the Linwood Ave westbound approach to Dyers Rd, with another “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign but the cycle lane is (mostly) unobstructed, with cones (mostly) pulled clear of the cycle lane. Why hasn’t the temporary traffic management contractor taken down the “Cyclists Merging” signs after they’d re-opened the cycle lanes by moving the cones clear? Leaving signs that are no longer relevant up will just cause drivers (& cyclists) to stop paying attention to these types of signs in future.
