Temporary traffic management on Ferry Rd between SH74 Tunnel Rd & SH74A Rutherford St is dangerous for cyclists. Westbound, vehicles coming round the corner from the Tunnel Rd roundabout are almost immediately forced into the cycle lane. There is no advance warning of this, nor is there a 30kph Temporary Speed Limit in place to at least soften the impact. Eastbound, cyclists are forced out of the cycle lane by a line of cones at the same time as cars are squeezed past the median pedestrian island. Again there is no warning of any works affecting the cycle lane. Maybe the City Care STMS on site (in the yellow vest in the photo) could explain why he ignored the safety of cyclists and the requirements of the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management & CTOC’s Local Operating Procedures when setting up, and being legally responsible for, this site?
