Cycle lane causes more problems to the cyclists (2: continued)

Because my previous report with almost the same title was limited to about 1700 characters, I have to continue with another report in this one.

Even if it is clear for the cyclist to go, because the cyclist is going uphill, it will take the cyclist some time to cross Copse Lane and other cars can come near to the cyclist from four directions (see my previous report) in the meantime and the cyclist is supposed to give way to all the traffic. This barrier separating the traffic on Healey Way and the cyclist has created the above problems. Without the barrier and the creation of the cycle lane and thus without the cycle lane Give Way sign, the cyclist would have been cycling on the main road, and as the cyclist cycles up Headley Way across the junction with Copse Lane, not only does he need not to stop at a Give Way sign, he has the priority in going forward and uphill over all other traffic so that all drivers have to give way to the cyclist. But now, with the cycle lane created, the cyclist has to give way to traffic from all four sources and has to watch extremely carefully in order to avoid an accident.
