Left hand car lane with red light sends cars across cyclists who have green light.

Reported via desktop in the Damage - pole leaning / equipment detached from pole/facing the wrong direction category anonymously at 21:00, Saturday 22 January 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3259391.

The layout of the lights facing east-bound drivers turning left into South Lambeth Road must be confusing as twice in the last month drivers have gone through red lights as I am cycling across the junction with a green light.

It's not just that one of the lights is twisted to face away from the drivers, it's much more serious. There are too many lights and they cannot see which lights pertain to their lane.

Another annoying event is when drivers turn left then immediately stop at the pedestrian crossing, blocking the cycle lane completely.

However, drivers turning through their red light is obviously extremely dangerous.
