This junction needs a convex mirror on a post as it is dangerous to cyclists and there has recently been a collision here.

I use this two-way cycle every day, to get to work. Cycling up Hartcliffe Way is not so much of an issue at this junction, but cycling down IS. I have been hit by a motorist once before (at the junction slightly further along the road, just past the fire station) and needed a new front wheel following the incident. The junction at Honeyfield Business Park is far more dangerous, because of the oblique angle to the main road, at Hartcliffe Way. Motorists NEVER look left to check to see if cyclists are coming down the cycle path. Perhaps this is why the collision happened there (see photo) earlier this month? If there was a convex mirror on a high post at this junction, it would reduce the danger to cyclists and it would give motorists the confidence to pull out safely onto Hartcliffe Way.
