Some works are being done in the southbound carriageway of New Bridge St and the contractor has decided to close the entire cycle superhighway too. This is being done via signs and cones halfway down the cycle lane instead of at a junction so the cyclists are forced to stop and either go on pavement (as they do, see photo) or a busy northbound carriageway of vehicles that has a mix of N and S bound traffic due to the roadworks. Dangerous traffic management on one of the most unsafe streets in the City (I have worked in an office at the above postcode for the last 3yrs).
