Birmingham signs causing cyclists problems?

Cyclists in Birmingham have seen new additions to a road, with poles, warning signs and bus timetables now added to Selly Oak New Road.

This means that bike users need to share half of the width of the footpath with pedestrians, while having to negotiate the run of road signs that obstruct their route, according to the Birmingham Post.

Commenting on the road, a representative from Birmingham City Council said: "Unfortunately we didn't have an alternative on this particular site but we are confident both pedestrians and cyclists can pass safely."

They added that the council was restricted by the statutory requirements for the position of the road signs as well as the location of nearby pipes and cables.

The North-West Evening Mail has reported that new road signs will be brought outside a school in Furness.

These have been added to represent a new 20mph zone and will be used in conjunction with traffic islands and speed cushions.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800713143-ADNFCR
