traffic lights delays

Traffic light timings holding cyclists

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
