West Street Tram lines - accident black spot

The junction at the top of West Street is dangerous because it is difficult for anyone travelling from Glossop Road onto West Street to cross the lines at a right angle. There is no signage warning of this, although I have seen such signs in other UK cities with trams.

One cyclist I know suffered a badly damaged shoulder which needed a metal plate to repair it, and resulted in long term discomfort, loss of mobility and strength.

I revisited the spot yesterday and found that of the 4 lines I could get some kind of angle on 3, but that left me 'between the lines' going down West St with no way to escape. Much to the chagrin of the Ford Transit driver following me!
