There is an “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign in advance of roadworks southbound on Antigua St between Disraeli St & Burke St. However, the extent of the works is completely contained within the shoulder, leaving the southbound cycle lane past the works totally unaffected – so cyclists do not need to merge and motorists do not need to watch for merging cyclists. Leaving redundant signs out like this makes them less effective when they are really needed, since motorists start ignoring them. Why not take the “Extreme Care Cyclists Merging” sign down whenever the works don’t affect the cycle lane, and put it back up when the works require cyclists to merge into the general traffic lane?
