These lights are a potential accident blackspot. Luckily they are temporary.

I go through my light when it changes and head off up the West Cambridge Cyclepath. A cyclist with a children carrier pulls round to the right off me (correctly) and on against the lights. Why? Because there are no lights at the end of the cyclepath.

This is a quiet residential (and academic!) road. There are very few cars and many more bikes, mostly coming on or off the West Cambridge Cyclepath. However, if bike riders do not know (and you can't see!) if the lights are against them, they are just going to proceed. A driver coming the other way will not anticipate this, which is fraught with danger.
