Bus lane traffic lights no response to cyclists stuck on red

Reported via desktop in the Stuck on red category anonymously at 14:44, Wednesday 10 August 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3744704.

This relates to traffic lights east bound A3205 Nine Elm lanes going to Vauxhall, just before Cringle Street. I've not seen the left hand traffic lights turn green (for cyclists). As a cyclist, I've passed several times recently (3 times last week w/c 1st Aug) and these lights have never turned green for a waiting cyclist. When cycling I therefore merge with traffic in the right hand lane which shows a green light to all other traffic. I've also observed buses not using the bus lane here for the same reason - presumably because it is stuck on red and the regular bus drivers using this road route know this to be the case.
