Temporary cycle path past CS3 Tideway hoardings is dangerous as goes over exposed kerb
Reported via desktop in the Pavement Defect (uneven surface / cracked paving slab) category anonymously at 23:59, Sunday 17 July 2022
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3683005.
[Photos taken on two different days] The temporary plastic barriers set up near Tideway hoardings are badly set up and send cyclists onto and over the kerb. I've fallen and I'm not the only one https://twitter.com/ BazK_GoW3/ status/ 1546970091119677441 Heading eastbound, with sun in the eyes, oncoming traffic the other side, and a narrow route, it's not easy to avoid. See pic - where the paving slabs are diagonal the kerb rises. Issue seems to be the last (red) barrier in particular getting shifted outwards, can it be better fixed? does make it a tight bend but not sure how else to avoid that kerb. Given the amount of cycle traffic at this pinchpoint approaching Blackfriars it's key that this get addressed.
