The northbound cycle lane, shoulder & part of the general traffic lane on Victoria St have been coned off outside a construction site at 169 Victoria St, forcing cyclists into the general traffic lane. Although there is an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign, there appears to be no need for the cycle lane to be closed, as absolutely nothing is happening in the coned off area (especially on the Saturday of a long weekend). If the building works require the cycle lane to be closed, why is it necessary to keep it closed outside working hours on the site? How hard and/or dangerous would it be for the site Traffic Controller to move the cones to the edge of the shoulder, reopening the cycle lane?
