This is a newly refurbished road closure with cycle lane in Chingford (Nelson Road E4). Here, stupidly, a new black bollard has been sited in the cycle lane. Highway engineers are incapable even of sensibly siting bollards. I suppose that's because they all drive cars and know nothing at all about walking or cycling, other than what official design guides tell them. The pair of bollards shown here need moving a few inches to the right, where they won't impede either pedestrians or cyclists.
