The cycle lane studs are dangerous

Reported via desktop in the Dangerous road surface (including ice, mud, spillage or debris) category anonymously at 16:41, Thu 30 March 2023

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 4378246.

I've almost been hit off my bike on at least 2 occasions attempting to turn right down little stanhope street. The studs are basically in the way so attempting to pull out whilst watching for any approaching traffic is exceptionally dangerous. Also as traffic doesn't have to watch out for cyclist (as they do when there's no protected cycle lane) they assume cyclists are in the cycle lane and drivers are not paying attention to cyclists wanting to pull out to turn right. Sadly the studs continue to get in the way for the whole strtech of cycle lane, and they don't deter cars from pulling up onto the lane, just a danger to cyclists if they hit the stud and end up in the road. The humps in the cycle lane are also rather steep and uncomfortable to cycle over, the slope needs to be more subtle. Any right hand junction shouldn't have the studs as is a trip hazard for cyclists the bollards are OK as well spaced from each other.
