Perhaps if you browse the issues from around 1998 when they started lobbying for them to 2001/2 when they started to comment on the implementation problems. Then ask yourself why did they participate in building a two way segregated cycle track with a total width of 2-3m and multiple known problems at the junctions.
Leaving Guildford Street is a simple left turn, the right turn is awkward like I said, and satellite pictures make me think you have priority and good visibility over Bedford Place.
Am I to understand your comments are from looking at it online rather than actually riding it?
No, it's more than that. You seem to be against all protected space, not only segregation. I'm against segregation, but I see protected space on busy routes as a valid tool as long as no-one is required to use it.
What do you mean by protected space on busy routes? Usually if space is provided - on road cycle lanes or shared use pavements, motorists are usually very quick to use physical and verbal intimidation to encourage you to use if so the "as long as no-one is required to use it" is a bit moot really.
