A colleague at work found his route to work along the Roe Green and Tyldesley Looplines blocked a couple of weeks ago, with no explanation.
The closure runs all the way from Worsley Station to Tynebank in Wallden.
He wasn't best pleased at having to carry his bike out onto the surrounding very busy road.
The closure notices finally appeared after two weeks.
It seems Urban Vision and Salford Council don't think that people cycling need to be given advanced warning along the route, giving them time to work out how they are going to navigate the surrounding roads. After all we don't all read their web site just in case our route to work is being closed.
