It's Barking: Bike lanes blocked by blank signs
It's always frustrating when cycle tracks are blocked by roadworks signs, such as this example on the A13 just east of Barking.
Still, they're there for a good purpose. We need the signs to give us directions and information.
After all, if you didn't have signs, you'd just have chaos, with nobody knowing where to go.
A good sign is concise and clear. These signs don't waste a word.
Just west from here is the start of the new CS3, from Barking to Tower Bridge. Obviously, being a Cycle Superhighway, the cycle track is different from the sort of nonsense you see here.
Instead of green nonsense, it's blue nonsense, as we'll see in tomorrow's post.
