Roadworks sign bases have been prepositioned on the footpath at 12 locations on Moorhouse Ave, Durham St & Montreal St. The signs and stands have been left on top of the bases next to the kerb, with a traffic cone added on either side, so they take up over half the footpath width. And having cones on either side, rather than in front/behind, doesn’t make the obstruction between the cones much more visible. Two of the sign bases have been placed at bus stops on Moorhouse Ave, so are likely to be dangerous for passengers getting off buses there (pictured). Another sign is on the only footpath on the Durham St overbridge, and has fallen away from where it was leant against the fence, so now blocks most of the footpath and presents the sharp edge of the sign at shin height for pedestrians trying to squeeze past. If it is totally necessary to preplace this equipment before it is used (rather than when the traffic management is actually set up), might I suggest connecting conebars across the top of the sign bases between the cones on either side to make the obstructions more visible?
