Our local council insists on putting automatic delays of 30 seconds into pedestrian/cycling traffic lights when there is approaching traffic, on roads with an 85th percentile speed of 35 – 45 mph
They cite ltn-2-95 Design of Pedestrian Crossings

The way I read it is that in table 2, for 85 percentile speeds of 35-45 they should be using vehicle actuation of c & d , variable timings NOT fixed times.
Am I correct ?
I would appreciate your comments
