There is an island in the middle if this crossing and the pedestrian crossing stop/gos are independent for the two traffic directions. However, when cycling up Headley Way from Marston Lane on the cycle path, or, when waiting at the crossing, the approach gives a clear view of the green/red man intended for the other side of the crossing - eg for crossing the lane of traffic descending Headley Way. You cannot easily see the green/red man for the side where you cross the lane of traffic ascending Headley Way. It is easy to step/cycle into traffic thinking that the far green man is intended for those crossing from the Marston Lane side.
Thank you for your enquiry. This issue has been passed onto the relevant team for investigation.

Thank you for your recent report. The alignment of the pedestrian displays at the junction have been checked and were found to be operating as designed. The displays on the island are narrow field of view in type and the 2 crossings are staggered with 3m between them.
