There are 4 sets of lights at this junction, one on either side of the lane either side of the marker here, one either lane of Melville st and one facing the lane on the railings between the Melville st Lights ( facing east) the massive problem here is that people cannot see the east facing light is actually for them crossing the lane, as both sets of the lights facing from either side of the lane (westward) are not visible to pedestrians heading NW or SE. They often have to gamble here, what compounds this is the short sequence that the lights here are on for pedestrians, its under 10 seconds. Please reposition the traffic lights so that people crossing the lane can see them. And the set facing the lane are practically useless. The ones either side of the lane and the marker here, would be best facing people crossing the lane as well as the vehicle users here.
