This is a classic case of a lack of ‘joined up’ thinking. Here, Transport for London (TfL) has wasted money building this impressive cycle path near the Hogarth Roundabout only to close it because it’s, er, dangerous.
But if they’ve blocked it with a pedestrian barrier, why did they need to attach a no entry sign to it?
It isn’t clear what you’re meant to do here. If you want to join the road, it’s a case of waiting near the pedestrian refuge 2m to the right of this bizarre sight. The traffic is pretty heavy at the best of times because this is where motorists join the M4. You could be waiting for some time.
In the distance you can see another no entry sign where the useless path continues.
