Inappropriate cycle lane markings

Reported via mobile in the General highways enquiry category anonymously at 08:48, Thu 14 July 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

I am grateful the council has installed plastic posts to deter motorists from driving and parking in the cycle lane here.

However, the plastic posts do not make much sense if the lane is an advisory cycle lane only (as denoted by a broken white line). This is confusing in the context of the posts. Can cars park and drive in the bike lane here or not?

A mandatory cycle lane would mean cars must not park or drive in the lane which would assist the council in enforcement and save money in the long term by minimising damage and replacement of the posts.

The posts at this location do get damaged regularly and people often park their cars in the lane which renders the cycle infrastructure totally pointless. Merging into the live lane at this location is tricky and somewhat hazardous.

I am grateful for your assistance.
