I suspect it's essentially a standard exit ped type setup. The cycles and the ped crossing will run at the same time, but the second signals will catch any turning cyclists removing the otherwise cycle/ped conflict. To do away with the second set, you'd have to ban turns for cycles in that direction (which is the traditional solution at a parallel crossing, for instance).Chris5156 wrote: ↑Wed Apr 28, 2021 20:53There's a cycle crossing between the two sets of lights, so presumably if you only had the furthest set, stopped traffic would block the cycle route, and if you only had the nearest set you'd lose some queueing space.Skipsy wrote: ↑Wed Apr 28, 2021 19:10Not impossible for shorter vehicles, but this one on the A219 could easily catch any long vehicle:

The setup itself is weird, with 2 sets of traffic lights next to each other, when surely only 1 is required?
They both always go to red, of course timed in a way that the first set go red first followed by the second
All you have instead is a double decker bus blocking 2 lanes since the turn right lights go after the straight ahead sequence.
