Due to the temporary traffic lights a little further along Hackney Road, the bike/pedestrian crossing has been closed.
I appreciate that these look like emergency works and will possibly even be gone by the time you read this, but perhaps you could ask the contractor to be more considerate of cyclists and pedestrians when setting up their roadworks. There was no warning of the works when entering the bike path by the farm, and the pictured barrier was obstructing the path to Columbia Rd, despite a left turn from Hackney Rd still being possible here.
I'm sure you'll agree that there's a better (and safer) way this could have been done.
