In theory, it appears they expect cycles to be able to access the side road, but no dropped kerb has been provided to get from the cycle track onto the shared footway. And no provision for right turns or going straight across between the two side streets.Obstruction:

167136Photo #167136The South City Way cycle route on Victoria Road. Note how the right hand side of the cycle track gets narrower over the width of the road crossing. The markings should guide cyclists away from this area, where the kerb has upstand as the ramp falls down to carriageway level.

The two 'Give Way' markings on the side road are of differing sizes. Are they not meant to be the same?

The cycle track is slowly decaying, and is barely recognisable as a cycle track. The sign is facing the wrong way and has been for years.
