The cut through for cyclists, Buxton Road
The road closure, Buxton Road E17 at the junction with Mission Grove. Access for cyclists is provided between the gate and the first black bollard, and marked out by (very faded) continuous white lines. On the Buxton Road side (where the car is parked) the cycle lane is protected by a single yellow line, because it is a well-known fact that no one ever cycles before 8.30 am, after 6.30 pm, or on Sundays. So the blue people carrier shown above is legally parked.
This is a situation you can find elsewhere in the Borough.
