Signal loops do not detect bicycles.

Reported in the Request Timing Review category anonymously at 11:19, Mon 16 September 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 6 minutes later. ref: 1768545.

The signal loops do not detect bicycles. If there are no cars, the lights do not change, so cyclists are either forced to illegally 'jump' red light. This is dangerous because a car could be coming the other way. Visibility is poor due to gradient and bend in road. There is a verge, but it is not maintained so bicycles cannot be ridden along it.

  • The engineer has attended site 20/09/19 and has reset detection. Cyclists should try to cycle in the middle of the lane to maximise opportunities for detection. The detectors use a magnetic field and as modern cycles contain little ferrous metal it is quite difficult to accurately detect cycles. The detectors are visible as black diamond shapes in the carriageway.
