Cycle lane northbound on Pound Rd at new intersection with Waterloo Rd has been coned off so more green sand can be put down on the cycle lane. Unfortunately, there is no advance warning that the cycle lane is closed (just a “Roadworks” sign) and that cyclists will need to merge into the general traffic lane. And if cyclists wanting to turn left follow the direction of the “Cyclists Use Ramp” sign, they can’t as the kerb cutdown/ramp is within the coned off area! The coned off cycle lane also extends around the corner, so westbound cyclists on Waterloo Rd are forced into the general traffic lane just as they leave the intersection (and where a raised median island constrains the lane width). Again, there is no advance warning on Waterloo Rd for road users approaching the intersection from the east.
