I don't get it. They look like the same old shit cycle lanes we've got already, but slightly more blue, which I guess was Boris' suggestion.
Looking through these pictures just gives me the impression that it will reinforce drivers thinking bikes should only ever be within two foot of the kerb, or - even worse - on the pavement.
Image seven is a great example of an accident waiting to happen. Dozy moo with the push chair wanders onto the bit of blue pavement while yakking on the phone, cyclist heading towards her has to take evasive action, crashing into the cyclist heading in the opposite direction and knocking them off the kerb and head on into a bus. Fucking marvelous.
