A cyclist has slammed a city’s decision to place road works signs in the middle of a busy bicycle lane.
The woman, who filmed her morning bike ride, was forced to dodge two signs blocking her path on the Auckland bridge in New Zealand.
The cyclist veered into the pedestrian footpath, only to come upon a second set of signs just metres away.
An Auckland woman has shared a video to social media showing a bicycle lane across a busy bridge blocked by roadworks signs
‘Who should we talk with about changing the policy on where roadworks signs go? This morning on the Symonds St over-bridge it was a bit ridiculous…’ she posted alongside the video on social media.
Many commenters vented their frustration over the placement of the signs.
‘Absolutely appalling. No consideration for bikers whatsoever,’ wrote one commenter.
‘Is it better to have signs on the footpath so pedestrians walk into the cycle lane? Signs on the cycle lane so cyclists bike on the footpath? Or signs on the road that vehicles have to avoid?’ questioned one commenter.
