Eastbound cycle lane on Tuam St between Montreal St & Durham St is closed off with cones, but there is no advance warning for cyclists or drivers that this will happen. The left hand traffic lane is also closed, but there are gated “Lane Closed” signs to warn drivers of the lane closure ahead. Well after where the cycle lane & left lane are closed, there is an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign (way past the three “Keep Right” signs and the “Detour Ahead” sign). This was previously reported to CCC on 19th April 2015 (via FixMyStreet #5498) and forwarded to CCC’s Temporary Traffic Management Team on the same day (CSR #91915317), but sadly nothing has been done to fix this over the last 2½ months. If Fulton Hogan and CTOC consider that advance warning signs should be located after the hazard they are warning of, maybe the gated “Lane Closed” signs could be moved to the other side of Durham St for consistency?
