The Kingsland Road dismount sign that thousands ignored
Improved, then removed
It’s gone! The East London Railway team was in touch this morning to say that signage surrounding their bridgeworks is the responsibility of TfL Streets, not them. In any case, by this afternoon, the dismount sign that nobody loved or obeyed had been removed, we’re glad to say. Thanks to all involved for acting quickly once word got round.
Earlier in the day a responsible concerned citizen made an amendment to the sign in view of the unfeasibility of cycle traffic traffic dismounting at this point, and of the lack of required signage to suspend the bus lane restrictions.
The amended sign read: “Share the road” — perhaps inspired by Mayor of London Ken Livingstone’s recent campaign to encourage tolerance between users of different travel modes.
