A good principle, let down by a horribly narrow cycle lane.

Cycles and buses can bypass the traffic lights using this bus lane. The cycle aspect is always green. See #16757

The bus aspect is generally red (allowing straight on general traffic uninterupted flow) except when a bus approaches. The bus triggers a light change, stopping the traffic so that the bus can go through without stopping - just like cycle crossings operate in the Netherlands really, and how they should be here.

Like most of the cycle lanes on Newmarket Road this one is horribly narrow, and the gap is critical width so buses come sailing through within millimeters of your shoulder. It is very intimidating for even experienced riders. See #12011

These narrow lanes should either be widened or scrapped.
