Cyclists in Nuneaton have been left confused by new signs along a main road in the Warwickshire town.
One of three signs erected last week on the footway running alongside The Long Shoot says “End of Route,” similar to the one on the left in the picture above.
Next to that however is a sign depicting a bike confirming that it is still a cycle route, and nearby a third sign denotes it as a shared path for cyclists and pedestrians.
Green Party county councillor Michele Kondakor told the Coventry Telegraph: "There are plans for a cycle path along The Long Shoot but it's not there yet and these signs are pure madness and totally unhelpful."
Warwickshire County Council told the newspaper: "After investigation we can confirm that the signs in question were installed incorrectly.
"This was an unfortunate error on the part of our contractor and we are working with them to have this rectified as soon as possible," the council added.
