Unnecessary temporary traffic management dangerous for cyclists

The westbound cycle lane on Main Rd in Moncks Bay is blocked by a cone taper “protecting” a Site Exit sign for the Clifton pump station repair worksite. There is no need for the Site Exit sign to be in the middle of the cycle lane, as there is a parking shoulder between the cycle lane and the footpath where it could be safely located (and where it was located prior to works last month that closed the cycle lanes in both directions and narrowed the traffic lanes). It would appear that the traffic management contractor (Fulton Hogan) couldn’t be bothered moving the sign clear of the cycle lane after those works were finished, and has just left it there endangering cyclists on this very popular riding route. There is also no advance warning that the cycle lane is blocked, but that is not unexpected as Fulton Hogan didn’t see any need to provide any advance warning of the cycle lane closure (or cars being forced into the westbound cycle lane) during their works last month either.
