The UK, Denmark, and Hungary also utilize the red-amber phase as well from my experience.

No, you are not.
Greece was having this traffic light sequence during the 50's and early 60's.

Lithuania. Šiauliai city, Pramonės str. - Išradėjų str. intersection.
Green arrow table was installed breaking Lithuanian rules of traffic lights. Table with green arrow was eliminated on 28th October 2014. Instead of it separate traffic lights with arrows were installed.

Have someone a video from Austria or Czech Republic with a traffic light and a green arrow near red signal? How does it work?

What are the tables saying: one, I guess, "keep the marked area free at red light", but blinking? And EDS means?

EDS means electronic inspection system which means if you pass on red light you will be fined. (thanks to a camera)

yellow one at the bottom means don't beep when green turns on.

the sing at the top means that road is an artery.

Very confusing traffic signals at a big intersection in Changsha, China. Taken by myself early this year.

Still worth seeing though not a traffic light: dynamic lane control system in Guangzhou, China. Taken by myself about a year ago.

And that's why I prefer lights before the intersection instead of behind the intersection... I already thought it would be something like that though. Some way of marking the divider between the middle "turn right" and "turn left" signals would've made it easier to understand, but I guess that's not really needed.

Very helpful, now I get it, although wouldn't it be better to put a
median strip in the lane that separates the traffic coming out from
the tunnel in this case? That's what happens in my city, with
separates traffic lights, and it's not confuse. Maybe as soon as you
get use to it, it's ok.
