Contraflow not flowing

(Above) The contraflow lane for cyclists on Pretoria Road E17. Yesterday. Now of course when drivers are diverted into a cycle lane because of roadworks, the convention is that the contractors put up a sign reading CYCLISTS DISMOUNT HERE. So when the reverse applies, surely there should be a sign DRIVERS GET OUT HERE AND PUSH.

Mind you, if you were a cyclist going in the opposite direction, there wouldn't be any problems, would there?

Well of course there would. This is the London Borough of Waltham Forest, after all.
