This is a typical pinch point in my city (London, Canada). Almost no intersections make it easy for cyclists to get across them in the city, even on routes with cycling infrastructure. Mosti intersections have sensors that detect cars and experienced cyclists will know how to position your bike to trigger them. This is not intuitive or obvious for inexperienced cyclists or those who are unfamiliar with the route. It is common for lights to NEVER change until a car comes to trigger the sensor. In that case cyclists have to go onto the sidewalk and push the pedestrian “beg” button to trigger the light, or decide to break the law and run the light.
