The chicanes on Legate Walk as it passes into the open area before the underpass beneath Northfield Avenue pose a substantial obstruction.
Navigating them on a bike with panniers is difficult and I have twice fallen off attempting this. It is impassable to mobility scooters, bikes with trailers or cargo bikes as the turning circle is too tight. It likely also poses difficulty for prams.

The path is 1760mm wide at this point, the chicanes are both 1020mm long, the distance between them is 1500mm.

My preferred solution would be for both chicanes to be completely removed.
My second preference would be for the northmost chicane (furthest from the junction with the footpath) to be removed as the one closer to the junction might have some benefit as it is a blind corner with the footpath.
My third preference would be for the northmost chicane to be moved at least 2m further north. So that it is possible to navigate each chicane independently.
