Re: Swiss Cycling Rules & Guidance in English?

A cycle lane is part of the road itself. The big lights alone are good enough and apply to the cycle lane as well.
A cycle path on the other hand is separated from the road and the lights of the main road do not apply.

Traffic lights with a cycle symbol specifically apply to cyclists. They might allow a head start for the cyclists. If used on a cycle path they apply to the cyclist using the path.

See Art. 70 OSR https://www.admin.ch/opc/fr/classifi...index.html#a70
