That sign is there for cyclists who choose to avoid the short
diversion via Southampton Place and Barter Street. There just
isn't room to continue on Bloomsbury Way, which is the reason for
the diversion. But there may be an issue for cyclists who approach
from Bury Place in either direction - another diversion sign may
be needed. I'll follow up.

Those of you who have cycled along Vernon Place and
Bloomsbury Way (continuation of Theobalds Road) recently
will be aware of the major works to replace the gas main.
This has resulted in a lane being closed and major
diversions. Cadent have been able to keep a westbound
cycle-only lane open with a short diversion via a
contraflow on Southampton Place and then via Barter
Street, to avoid having to go round the Holborn Gyratory
with the buses and motor vehicles. Most cyclists are using
this, which is good, though some are using the footway
Starting tomorrow, works will begin at the junction with
Southampton Row and though the road layout will change the
cycle signals installed earlier this year will still
operate as designed, so the junction should remain safe.
But please be careful! Email me with any issues and I'll
take it up with Camden.
