Grey Friars Junction with Friar Lane

Grey Friars junction with Friar Lane
Typically in the Netherlands cyclists would be free to ignore all the no entry signs here (maybe that is planned for later work, since it would appear from Grey Friars that the city council like to build contraflow cycle lanes rather than just permitting contraflow cycling). However, cyclists can go in both directions on Gray Friars, something motorists cannot do. For motorists this junction requires some thought before proceeding. The driver of the BMW in the photo was not unusual in taking some time to decide what to do next, so much time that I actually managed to calmly take a photo on the other side of the street and on this side of the street before the car moved. The little traffic there was moved so slowly that I thought nothing of walking about on the carriageway.
