The No Cycling Cycle Lane - Park Hill Road

This is a temporary art installation from November 2003.

It is one of the most outrageous pieces from the artist best known as the Croydon Council (Anti-)Cycling Department.

It was swiftly removed, following unfavorable publicity, and it was later claimed that this was the result of a contractor's error. However, it is a clear illustration of the lack of care taken by the council in these matters.

It might be funny, but for the fact that these no cycling signs were supposed to be placed along the Fairfield Path. Now, five years later this steep narrow twisting footpath is under threat from the Connect2 project. Croydon Council now want to turn this busy section of the footpath into a cycle route.
