Looks like it crosses the road and runs into a hedge on the other side. Is there actually a bike path over there that is separated from pedestrians/walkers, or do you cross 10'/3m sooner and merge onto the walking path?

Looks like a waste of money from this side of the pond.

bikes also have the right of way without stopping just like peds

separated walk/ride path on both sides.

more info a London-based one here

How many cyclists' blood did it take to paint that path?

we kid, any bike infrastructure is good even if it's flawed. for example, I have issue with that little traffic calming island w/ the metal sign holder on top of it. it's just looking to create a crash when the sign comes off. wonder what it's for, seems out of place

Hopefully the little sign platforms are telling drivers to slow down or stop for cross traffic. Put that here with no control and half the traffic would be rushing through, with some well-intentioned drivers stopped and waving you on into them.

The black/white poles with flashing yellow lights indicate that the crossers (peds/cyclist/horses) always have right of way.

Just don't confuse your crossings (Pelican, Toucan, Zebra, Puffin and School).
