Eastbound cycle lane on Marriner St is blocked by a Road Closed Ahead sign between the Esplanade & Burgess St. There seems to be plenty of room on the kerb buildout for the TAB sign, so why wasn’t the roadworks sign placed there, clear of the cycle lane and still visible to approaching traffic? CTOC’s own guidance on sign placement around cycle lanes ( states that placing the sign in the cycle lane is the last option and would only be acceptable on a few sites e.g. “when you have a narrow street with no shoulder that is against a retaining wall” – not the case here at all. Up until at least 2nd May the cycle lane here and on the other side of Marriner Rd was blocked by two temporary speed limit signs (reported to CCC via FixMyStreet #5464 on 12th April, and passed to the CCC Traffic Management Team also on 12th April (Customer Service Request #91912388), which sadly resulted in absolutely no action at all from Fulton Hogan (the traffic management contractor).
