The eastbound cycle lane on Wigram Rd between Broken Run & Aidanfield Dr has been blocked by roadworks. The 2 advance warning signs are both in the cycle lane, with the second one (ironically the “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign) totally blocking the cycle lane. This situation isn’t helped by this “Cyclists Merging” sign currently having been blown over, so it isn’t providing any advance warning (as well as being even more of a hazard for cyclists since it is a lot less visible when lying flat on the cycle lane). With the cycle lane (and footpath) closed for over 150m in a 60kph speed limit area with narrow (2.75m?) lanes, why isn’t there a Temporary Speed Limit in place (as required by CTOC)?
