Pedestrian crossings have no provision for bicycles

Sustrans route 5 crosses Thames St and Speedwell St opposite Old Greyfriars St. This crossing has recently been remodelled as part of the Westgate works. Unfortunately, it is now difficult to ride a bike across the crossing because there is no provision for cyclists. In particular, the railings between the two crossings require two sharp turns on a central reservation shared with pedestrians. There is barely room for two cyclists to pass each other. Also, the crossing lights only have pictures of pedestrians, and the dropped kerb is rather narrow. The current design is fine for pedestrians, but inappropriate as part of an important cycle route through Oxford.
