Cyclist sensor not calibrated correctly

Reported in the General Fault category anonymously at 08:37, Wed 8 January 2020

Sent to TfL 3 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS1924757.

Hi, The "presence of cyclist" sensor on the traffic light shown in the picture and highlighted with a yellow arrow (on Hinde Street, facing east), only registers the presence of cyclists if they are right by the curb.

Due to parking nearby, it's not safe for cyclists to wait right by the curb.

This means that cyclists have to wait until a car arrives to trigger the under-road sensor.

Please could this sensor be recalibrated/repositioned to detect cyclists waiting across the entire lane.
