Dangerous to cyclists

This may look innocuous but I can assure you fooling 4 hrs at A&E with a dislocated finger, severe bruising to hip and shoulder and 6 stitches to a head injury it is not. The problem is the arrangement of the cones and the kerb line. The first cone directs the cyclist to the right and the one at the end to the left. The natural like is to move across where the kerb starts. The kerb however is directly in line with the white line and looks like a continuation of it not a kerb. As such ones wheels run along the kerb and one comes off like I did. The solution is to put a cone at the end of the kerb with arrow pointing left.
