Unnecessary temporary traffic management unsafe for cyclists

The southbound cycle lane & shoulder on Victoria St have been coned off outside the Duncan Cotterill building at 148 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 the coned off area is just being used for parking by contractors. The traffic Management Plan for these works (#27639 on http://www.tfc.govt.nz/current-conditions/roadworks/) only refers to a shoulder closure with a pedestrian walkway at times – nowhere does it include closure of the cycle lane, and there are no stated impacts on cyclists!
