The barrier has been hit by a vehicle and damaged yet again and is blocking the bike lane. I found the keep right sign dumped on the bike lane and put it back. Vehicle activated speed warning signs or traffic lights are needed. I have made so many complaints about this I am losing count.
Council ref: ENQ23976264

Well really the solution here is just to fix the bridge and open it back up for two-way traffic. Visibility is terrible here so seeing when the bridge is clear is very difficult.

I was going to use a crowbar to move the barrier so it is no longer forcing cyclists up the kerb to avoid oncoming traffic. Someone else had already done it. The barrier is still partially blocking the bike lane.
