Cross Street approaching John Dalton St and Princess St.
traffic signals do not detect cycle approach . A novice cyclist would cycle between the rail and the kerb - it is not certain whether there is a detection loop here, to pick any cycle approach.:

On approach Southbound the traffic signals on Cross St do not detect cycles. 1 cycle approached the junction near the kerb to avoid crossing the tram rail unnecessarily ; I waited through 3 phases of light changes while this signal remained on red.

Vehicle detection is by a MVD (or Moving Vehicle Detector) – this is a small unit on top of the traffic signal pole – and not a physical loop in the carriageway

· MVDs have a detection zone and this is angled to detect all cycles and trams on the approach to the signals

a fault os raised with signal maintenance company to check detection

If any signals are not detecting cycles in Greater Manchester then please email and it will pass to the signal company directly.
