73032Photo #73032UPDATE 27/07/16 see #83086 report of removed bike lights at crossing from Asda Princess road twitter.com/technicalfault/status/758040342050512896 Hulme Manchester. UPDATE 1 Dec 31 2015 Had a reply from TfGM who stated "We are currently reviewing the operation of the junction and considering the options to improve the situation for cyclists at the junction. We will need approval from Manchester City Council before being able to proceed. Sorry I can’t give any timescales and anything more definite"
In the meantime a cyclist at the halfway position heading west toward the Universities may proceed if the pedestrian light is showing 'green man' for the same section of road (despite the cycle signal showing red - take note @GMPolice @GMPMossAndHulme ). twitter.com/GMcycling/status/682631210623975425

ORIGINAL REPORT 29 Dec 2015:
.The furthest red light is bonkers - there is a green man AND green light for motor vehicles so absolutely no reason for this red light for cyclists completing their crossing of the junction - confusing and dangerous !!!! Greater Manchester Police's Operation Considerate would penalise RLJ cyclists for a failed traffic light system. The lights are on green for vehicles going forward and there is a filter lane for left-turning vehicles (see Google image) so dubious reason for the nearer red lights for cyclists and pedestrians. (Oncoming right-turning vehicles should give way as they do for the motor vehicles and elephant footprints emphasise). This arrangement discourages most cyclists from using the protected cycle lane - by not using the lane the cyclists has priority (over oncoming R turners) also if you look closely the cycle lane channel (next to the first red light for cyclists) has accumulated mud and debris and has not been cleared for ages.
HISTORY:
THE GREEN LIGHT FOR CYCLISTS WAS SHOWN THE SAME AS THAT FOR THE GREEN GO PHASE FOR MOTOR VEHICLES BUT VEHICLES TURNING RIGHT DID NOT YIELD TO CYCLISTS GOING STRAIGHT ON - SO INSTEAD OF REINFORCING THE OBLIGATION OF DRIVERS TO GIVE WAY TO CYCLISTS, RIDERS ARE FORCED TO STOP HERE AND EVEN (BIZARRELY) STOP AT THE HALFWAY POINT - A CLASSIC CASE OF BIAS TOWARD BAD DRIVER BEHAVIOR.

72886Photo #72886Cycleway crosses 4-track tramway with just a forest of signs and a 'Give Way' triangle. No flashing amber tram crossing signals like elsewhere in the city centre, despite the complex and potentially confusing arrangement. The central refuge between the two pairs of tracks is not big enough for anything more than a unicycle!

The position of the adjacent foot crossing has not attracted the pedestrian in overalls to use it, who has instead opted for walking across the cycleway crossing.

72885Photo #72885Bizarre routing of cyclists on Long Millgate between tramway crossing and link road to Corporation Street. The second cycle route sign appears to be sending cyclists up a one-way street the wrong way! This could have been designed far better. See also #67969.Route sign:

72884Photo #72884Looking along Long Millgate from the cycle track crossing the tramway. The right turn ban at the mini-roundabout should exempt cycles since the road that way is buses, taxis and cycles only, unless the ban exists due to the unusually close proximity of the bus stop to the junction which may affect sight-lines.Road environment:

One of the cycle route signs in the background seems to be pointing the wrong way, although the path it points along reaches the same point in any case.
