SP0483 : Welcome to Edgbaston - sign on Bristol Road, Bournbrook

Welcome to Edgbaston - sign on Bristol Road, Bournbrook
Welcome to Edgbaston - sign on Bristol Road, Bournbrook
But not if you're a cyclist, as the poles supporting the sign obstruct the cycle path. Near the University of Birmingham's South Gate. Note the cyclists crossing the main road via the pedestrian crossings.

Update, March 2012: I understand that the offending post was removed in November 2011, after a lot of grief from the cyclist's of Birmingham. The sign has been repositioned.
