31318Photo #31318"Cyclists Dismount" sign in a contraflow cycle lane at roadworks. See #31317 for the view from the other side.

The other side of the road contains fixed buildouts, meaning that it would be difficult to divert the lane around the obstruction. The obvious solution (were this a traffic lane) would be temporary traffic lights. In practice cyclists just ignore the dismount sign, bringing them and it into disrepute.

31317Photo #31317"Cyclists Dismount" sign in a contraflow cycle lane at roadworks. Note that this photo is taken from the 'with-flow' side from which cyclists will be approaching on the road and not in the lane so there's nothing for them to dismount for! See #31318 for the view from the other side.Obstruction:

31143Photo #31143Compare with #31074 - the 'offending' Cyclists Dismount sign has gone, but that may just because the location of the work has moved and it's easier to divert pedestrians down the other side.Obstruction:
