Partington Warburton Lane Greater Manchester Disappointing to see that discriminatory A-frame/K-frame barriers are still proposed for a new route in Partington . Should be bollards only.
@CWATrafford See Guidance from "A Guide to Inclusive Cycling"
Location - Obstructions like this block anyone not using a standard bicycle from accessing the new bridge.
The proposals to replace this barrier are not inclusive and are inadequate for when the path becomes more popular such as at weekends and school holidays.
The spacing of bollards must meet the standard recommended in local transport note

From LTN 2/08 [pdf]
8.14.4 Bollards are the preferred method of access control for larger vehicles, spaced a minimum of 1.2 metres apart, preferably 1.5 metres. For an additional deterrent effect, they can be installed as two staggered rows with a minimum 1.2 metres between rows (see Figures 8.5 and 8.6). Bollards should ideally be placed at least 5 metres from any bend or junction, so that riders can approach them straight on. Bollards can be hazardous on unlit routes and at sites where forward visibility is restricted by the layout or by other users.
