Narrowing experience: Roadworks block Elephant bike path
Work installing the Cycle Superhighways continues apace. This sign has appeared on Churchyard Row, currently part of the Elephant and Castle cycle bypass, and part of the future CS7 from Merton to the City.
Unfortunately, the works don't leave much space for cyclists using the bypass, which purports to offer a safe alternative to the Elephant's lethal double-roundabout. Especially when they have to share it with pedestrians, whose footway is completely obstructed.
It seems a lot of fuss just for painting a blue stripe on the road...
