Turning left on to fleet st the northbound cycle highway at Ludgate circus is a daily test of my patience. Peds are literally always gambling and just assuming no one turns left; some even step out and cross after having made eye contact with you! The only thing I've found it to constantly ding my bell while going round and shout "no" to anyone who tries to step out.
I hang a left at Tudor street to cut out that corner. Much less stressful but currently involves walking as there is a huge hole in the ground.
yea that's my route home, but had never considered doing it on the way in. Once that hole is filled in I'll go that way. I hate that stretch of the cycle lane, it's way too thin for two abreast at the speeds ppl go but people still insist on doing it.
