One way street but some road decals suggest cyclists can cycle the wrong way up the street. No signage to warn motorists of this.

Reported in the Road Signage category by Simon Crowder at 12:59, Thu 30 November 2017

Sent to Bristol City Council 1 minute later

East Street is one-way but cycle icons on the road indicate cyclists may travel the wrong way up the street. No signage exists to warn drivers of oncoming cyclists, and there are no actual signs indicate it is OK for cyclists, just some road decals. Road is unsuitable for cyclists to cycle against the one way - too narrow to pass oncoming buses and cars, motorists will not expect oncoming cyclists, motorists will drive dangerously due to becoming angry and believing they are 'in the right' and that cyclists are breaking the rules.

  • Signage is confusing here. Is it "No entry" or "No Entry except cycles"?

  • As you can see by the photo, it is no entry according to the sign, yet there is a prominent cycle decal suggesting entry is permissible.

  • Apparently a lot of "Customer follow up", but nothing actually being done. Who is this "customer" that BCC keeps contacting?

  • Definitely not fixed in any way. Irritating to see how the council fails to deal with anything, but this will be an interesting chain of messages when someone finally gets seriously injured.

  • Still nothing, going to be interesting when someone gets hit by a car to display this long transcript of the council ignoring the problem.

  • Some signs have been installed which is great.

    However the road is too narrow.

    Also, it is pedestrianised during the day however a total lack of enforcement or barriers etc. means that it has near constant car traffic and people parking on the street which further obstruct it.

    So I am unsure if I can really call it fixed or not. I'm CERTAIN that there are guidelines for this so they should be consulted.
