GSL have coned off the shoulder on SH1 Main South Rd eastbound between Halswell Junction Rd & Parker St, which forces cyclists out into the general traffic lane (just at the merge after the Halswell Junction Rd intersection and in a 70kmh speed limit area). The only advance warning signage is a “Shoulder Closed” sign, which doesn’t provide any warning for motorists that they may encounter cyclists in “their” general traffic lane. The situation is aggravated by the presence of the eastbound cycle lane on the other side of the Halswell Junction Rd intersection, which feeds cyclists onto the shoulder (which is then closed off …).

Cones blocking shoulder from live lane now removed, BUT the "Shoulder Closed" and "Keep Left" signs have been left in place blocking the shoulder, still forcing cyclists into the live lane at the point where vehicles are merging into a single lane.
