Fairly recently installed (last 3 years). Unfortunately the cycleway and footway are designed such that vehicles entering and exiting the side streets are more or less at carriageway level. A better design (aside from using coloured asphalt throughout) would be to keep the cycleway nearer footway level and have ramps either side so that drivers had to slow down.
