Fencing associated with building works on Armagh St between New Regent St & Colombo St is blocking the westbound cycle lane, once again with no advance warning at all for approaching cyclists and drivers. The fencing also blocks the footpath, so pedestrians are forced to walk along the general traffic lane to get around the site. Again there is no warning that the footpath is closed, and with no alternate route provided on the carriageway (in a suitably delineated and protected section of the existing traffic lane) or guidance across the carriageway to a footpath on the opposite side, pedestrians are just ambling down the middle of the road to get past.
