Photo #16547

This shot was taken on Blackfriars Bridge (northbound) on the evening of Good Friday (April 10) 2009 - just two days after a cyclist was killed by an HGV at the Elephant and Castle, approx 2km from here.
There are no signs alerting cyclists to the change in layout. (See also #16553, #16545 and #16546.)
Just over the bridge the segregated bike lane comes to a halt when it is blocked by roadworks. Again there is no warning to cyclists and as the road curves here you cannot see the problem before you get to it.
If you know there is a blockage and you ride in the carriageway with the rest of the traffic you risk being intimidated by other road users who do not know why the bike route is unattractive and who do not respect the cyclist's right to choose what s/he feels is the safest place on the road.
