He didn't. The blue signs are #91029 unlawful 'cyclists dismount' signs. TfGM are building tram lines that do not allow cycle carriage. during the construction phase there appears to be NO attempt to ensure Contractors behave responsibly and get legal. road.cc/content/news/225225-council-removes-hundreds-unlawful-cyclists-dismount-signs twitter.com/roadcc/status/881059808266207232 Please allow cyclists to ride and car drivers to get out and push ! To avoid the choice of cyclists dismounting or drivers pushing: Place sign no overtaking of cyclists passed roadworks (this method is used in other parts of G MCR).
