local knowledge should have helped me with this... instead my route had me stuck for a full minute at the busiest intersection on the map at a point where going around the block would achieve nothing... live and learn. I wonder if they could introduce a symbol difference between zebra crossings and crossings at lights to help with this?

Yeh, busy road crossings are a lottery. Different symbols for lights vs zebra crossings would help although the map might get a bit cluttered. Courses should avoid busy crossings where possible. I hope we don't need to cross Spit Rd next Wednesday because that can be up to 3mins wait.

Surely they would place a control under the bridge on that pedestrian underpass to motivate runners to run through there and forbid crossing the road...
