Failure to detect cycles

Reported via mobile in the Stuck on red category anonymously at 00:10, Wednesday 5 January 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3216404.

Lights failed to detect bike approaching from west. Cycle light remained red despite lights cycling to allow car traffic to pass. Eventually forced to cross large junction diagonally on red light.

This is serious safety issue as it’s forcing unprotected cycles to cross 3 lanes of bi-directional live traffic.
