Spraymarks have placed a “Cyclists Merging” sign totally blocking the shoulder on Hendersons Rd eastbound just before the Cashmere Rd intersection. Since it is placed just on the exit from a curve, it is not readily visible to approaching motorists, who may be surprised to find a cyclist popping out into the general traffic lane to get past the sign (especially as they won’t be exercising “Extreme Care”, since it is the “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign that is causing this problem). Would be great if Spraymarks could move it 20-30m further away from the corner and onto the grass next to the shoulder (where an unused detour sign is currently located).
