183676Photo #183676The Bunhouse Road cycle traffic signals are finally operational, about a year after installation. On this occasion the signal was triggered by someone cycling on the footway opposite. The cycle and pedestrian phases do not occur in the same cycle of the signal phases, even when the pedestrian button has been pressed. See also #183675.Cycleway:

183675Photo #183675The Bunhouse Road cycle traffic signals are finally operational, about a year after installation. However, some cyclists are continuing to use the pedestrian crossings, including this one who never pressed the button and had to wait a couple of cycles of the junction lights. The cycle and pedestrian phases do not occur in the same cycle of the signal phases, even when the pedestrian button has been pressed. See also #183676.Cycleway:

183674Photo #183674The double yellow lines continue across the advisory pedestrian crossings and into the Restricted Parking Zone where double yellow lines are not meant to go. There are no markings or signs to say that the parking extending into the distance is even allowed, unlike in the layby in the foreground where there are markings.

Mud has been allowed to accumulate in the motorcycle parking area.

The cycleway up the hill to the rear is still awaiting completion of utilities work before it can be finished.

UPDATE 16/6/2022: Arriving by bike, the detector did not cause the button to light up, so I had to press the button in order to get across. The detector is so close to the crossing that I was almost stopped when I crossed it, and in order to press the button, I had to cross the stop line to reach it.
