When cyclist's are waiting to cross Askew road:
1) many people don't realise that they need to request a cycle phase by pressing the button.
2) The cyclist green phase coincides with red directly oncoming traffic but oncoming left turners are still green. Many cyclists at this location want to turn right past Station East to go to the Tyne Bridge. The red phase means buses stop and obscure cyclist visibility of oncoming left turning traffic. Cyclists may understandably assume all oncoming traffic is on red leading to high collision risk.
