In the space of three days, we received two notifications that contractors doing roadworks in Huntingdon Rioad and Shelford Road had, without authorisation, erected ‘No Cycling’ or ‘Cyclists Dismount’ signs on roads remaining open to general traffic. This is unacceptable, and probably illegal. The correct signage should be ‘Narrow lanes – no overtaking’.
Approach to roadworks on Shelford Road
Action to remove the ‘No Cycling’ sign on Shelford Road at the roadworks for the Addenbrooke’s Access Road was taken the morning after we reported this to the County Council. Following many comments from our members, the Campaign contacted the County Council and new signs, which we feel are acceptable, were put up.
