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. With the cones and sign being hidden around a slight bend, the lack of advance warning of the cycle lane being blocked means drivers may get a surprise when suddenly confronted by a cyclist in “their” lane. There is also no need for Fulton Hogan to have placed the “Site Exit” sign 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 whilst still remaining visible. This was previously reported to Christchurch City Council via FixMyStreet (#5564) on 7th May 2015, but has remained there blocking the cycle lane for the last six weeks. Maybe one of the Temporary Traffic Management Coordinators from CTOC could post an update to explain why they have taken no effective action regarding this cycle lane blockage, or alternatively why they consider this site to be acceptable?

Cycle lane cleared, with sign moved onto shoulder (between cycle lane & footpath), and cone taper removed from cycle lane. Only taken 6 weeks to get there!
