Road crossing in Worcester

A toucan crossing in the middle of Worcester
This confused me, I will admit. The pavement has been taken straight across this road entrance, so that there is, in effect, a driveway only crossing the road. The effect is to give pedestrians on the pavement clear priority over other vehicles turning into and out of this short cul-de-sac. There is a sign for cycle users instructing them to give was to pedestrians here, but the benefit for cycle-users, I suspect, is the clear access that this gives to the toucan crossing to cross over to another river side shared-use path. This is the only traffic light at which cycle users have to wait between the two shared use bridges in Worcester.
