It was interesting to note on your front cover (NCE 14 June) that no traffic obeyed the keep left bollard on the traffic island build out.

The width of the road could have accommodated a cycle lane which would have achieved the object of reducing the width of the traffic lanes. As designed, the cyclist now has to cope with a narrower lane with traffic trying to squeeze past him.

Build outs are a hazard and a constant maintenance problem.
