Oxford's Donnington Bridge has in different sections

 <-> Pavement                     <-> Pavement
     --------                      -> Cycle lane
  -> Cycle lane                   <-  Cycle lane
 <-  Cycle lane                       ----------
     --------                      -> Cycle lane
  -> Main carriageway              -> Main carriageway
 <-  Main carriageway             <-  Main carriageway
 <-  Cycle lane                   <-  Cycle lane
     --------                         ----------
 <-> Pavement                     <-> Pavement 

Where ---- indicates a kerb.  I'm afraid my ascii art isn't up to describing
how they join, but be assured it doesn't involve car drivers having to make
last minute decisions at speed.
