The boom in cycle superhighway building is perhaps a little like the early 70s fashion for subway construction, the tale end of a good idea sensibly built for decades before that. it seemed like a good idea at the time but ends up being more popular with users other than that intended. Good new ideas developed cautiously and carefully with a strong case made to have them built which prove popular do tend to get adopted crudely by the unimaginative zealots, and go wrong. Garden Bridge (a bad misunderstanding of New York's High Line) is another example.
