[UPDATE: On 30.11.22 I received a reply from a traffic engineer to my complaints about the temporary signage obstructing pavements. "Thank you for your email regarding the temporary signing on Burton Stone Lane, and I am sorry to hear of the difficulties experienced. Unfortunately the temporary warning sign A-boards and barriers were required a little longer than normal as there was a delay on the installation of permanent signage, and in addition, one of the new splitter islands needed some repairs after being hit by a car. However, I am pleased to advise that this work has now been completed, and all the temporary signing and barriers have been removed."
I argue that people (all pavement users, mobility scooter and wheelchair users, and cyclists), need protection not drivers. Further there is no warning for any road user (including people who cycle) of 'New road layout ahead' or 'New priorities ahead' ie to expect change and proceed with caution. Surely this would have encouraged motorists to reduce speeds to no more than the 20mph limit.

Actual width is 100cm but usable width is 100 - (50 + 50) = 0. (Table 5-3: Additional width at fixed objects, LTN 1/20 Other image and links nearby today: #188013.
