I maybe should have taken the photo a little way back to show better how the dropped kerb is the wrong side of the 'give way' line at the West Bar roundabout, which could cause problems for a cyclist leaving the roundabout just as a driver pulls up from Corporation Street.

112484Photo #112484'Narrow Lanes Ahead - Give cyclists room'.

Having looked at Streetview, I think the direction sign for 'city centre' refers to using the toucan crossings across Derek Dooley Way to get to Johnson Street. But if I was arriving here for the first time, I'd assume it meant the left turn at the junction, without further guidance.
