The only hazard is on the East side where tourists and runners step off the pavement without looking, so I always have to cycle in the bus lane instead of the cycle lane. So I would not be happy about a segregated cycle lane leaving cyclists in direct confrontation with pedestrians without any escape.
So far, I am not impressed with the segregated lane on Westminster square, makes you wait forever and too narrow whereas before you could glide around the square with cars without an issue...It is safer but it won't be long before confident cyclists ignore those cycle lanes and go with normal traffic again to save precious time off their commute.
