Roadworks on Manchester St between Armagh St & Cambridge Terrace direct northbound motorists into the northbound cycle lane without any advance warning. As can be seen from the photo, a lane shift has been set up with cones directing northbound traffic leftwards, putting them into the cycle lane. Roadworks signs associated with the next lot of works up Manchester St prevent cyclists from being able to move left out of the cycle lane & towards the shoulder. For this worksite there are no advance warning signs for merging cyclists (although ironically the third northbound sign for the next worksite warns of “Merging Cyclists” AFTER motorists are forced into the cycle lane).
