Fulton Hogan have again blocked the eastbound cycle lane on Main Road in Moncks Bay (just past the yacht club) with a roadworks sign for their Peacock’s Gallop Project (same location and same “Please Stop on Request” sign as FixMyStreet #9440 reported on 11 October 2017, removed by 13 October 2017). With a cycle lane symbol painted just 1m in front of the sign it is pretty obvious this is a cycle lane, so why place it here? The 2 signs in advance of it (which have been located on the footpath but still provide enough space for pedestrians) could be moved forward by 30m or so, and then this sign could have been placed where the preceding one currently is. Given that the manual traffic controller is located over 160m away round the corner, an additional 30m is unlikely to affect the safety of this setup – although the two 30kph TSL signs still blocking the cycle lane between this sign & the MTC might affect the safety of cyclists (see FixMyStreet #9441 & #9450).
