The Google Street View image shows the huge intersection. With red arrows to show where I was waiting to go straight ahead and the non-functional cycle lane traffic lights. The lights should change just before the right-turning traffic lane but nothing happened for three complete changes. There is no access to the cycle lane system to the right unless one crosses the four lane road. Or ride for about a mile and then do a double U-turn at the next traffic lights. The pedestrian crossing is [presumably] under the control of the same lights? However, I have to admit that I failed to spot any mummified pedestrians or Google tricyclists. The strangely truncated yellow line in the middle of the crossing [image below] suggests later editing by Google. Perhaps it was a Google trike which ran out of battery power after being marooned in mid-crossing by the lights?
Unfortunately the Google camera car did not travel in a suitable lane to capture my view of the crossing. Why the camera car would be in the overtaking lane is a mystery considering they were supposed to be recording the scene. It was a similarly grey and miserable day, when the camera car raced through. So I had to considerably brighten these scenes for your enjoyment. Am I allowed to call this a visual rant on account of all the red arrows? Thought not.
