I get the feeling they have gone all in for route continuity on this one, different contractors/designers compared to the tfl schemes and other boroughs.
The south side of the bridge looks like shared use, and I guess you will get some mixing with peds in there, though there are no ped destinations on that stretch so should be low numbers, and people will soon learn to stay north and head to the junction to move south.
That's wildly different to the plans, where was this mentioned?
Section B in the above, the track continues to the outside of the pavement East and Westbound all the way up the big roundabout at the top...
see here: https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/281692/newest/ for links to tfl consulations, past and present.
I have had a look at the nearby streets on and off. Certainly no traffic armageddon, though the junction South out of Marchmont Street seems a bit busier with a lot of queuing cars going South on a cut through to Russell Square.
Also they have re-allowed the left turn North onto Judd Street which is a big problem as it clashes with the major Eastbound flow of cyclists going home.
