Roadworks on Armagh St between Manchester St & Madras St direct cars into the eastbound cycle lane and then force cyclists out of the cycle lane as the cycle lane is coned off. There is no advance warning of either of these situations, especially for cyclist & vehicles turning left from Manchester St (especially with the temporary corrugated iron wall blocking the view onto Armagh St and the end of the 30kph temporary speed limit just prior to the Armagh St intersection). There are also half a dozen unsealed holes in the asphalt from previous works which could be hazardous to cyclists, either if they hit them or have to swerve suddenly to avoid them.
