York Street works

I had wondered Wednesday night why the no parking cones were arrayed down the left-hand side of York Street; on Thursday I found out. A roadworks to the right sign as you approach from Lion Hill, two large yellow signs telling us that the (unmarked) right-hand lane was closed, and cones further down to push us into the left.

They were digging up the pavement between the Chinese takeaway and the barbers and needed the space to allow pedestrians access. All well and good, but wouldn't it have been an idea to temporarily move the bus-stop that's directly opposite the works a bit further up the road?

Then again according to the report it's Electricity work that's only supposed to be for one day (yesterday).
