Not sure that this is not a helluva lot more dangerous than the detour.
Like I said before, there are 2 contractors standing idle just watching the detour. They could be controlling traffic with stop/slow signs. Surely whatever machinery is involved in repairing the wall wouldn't be blocking the path all the time?
Rodney - I think you have been stretching for a few posts. More and more your expectations of actions that the contractor and others could/should do are in excess of what is being asked of the cyclists to do - to take a detour and lose ten or fifteen minutes a day for a couple of months.
Yeah, maybe it isn't such a big ask that they do some traffic duties. On th eother hand is it such a big deal to ask US to take a detour for a while?
And I still can't understand how you managed to differentiate between the burden imposed on motorists by road works and that imposed on us. Again stretching methinks.
Just keep riding and maybe even rejoice in a bit of variety for the time being. I'm accepting the challenge of pushing over a steep and tight bend and it 's doing me a power of good.
It'll be finished eventually. And hopefully within the time frame stated.
(Notwithstanding your other points about doing some other much needed work while they are there.)
