Initially removed whilst resurfacing work took place, the barriers were re-instated on “Health & Safety grounds” by our ever-caring Council – despite protestations from the Campaign and a few local residents. We took the matter to the Neighbourhood Forum with a proposal for a trial period without barriers and that appears now to be under way.
Meanwhile – enjoy a bit more freedom and a bit less hassle and be sure to give other users space – it was conflict between people on bikes and on foot that brought the barriers in in the first place.
(This is to the best of our current knowledge but we are making enquiries to get the full facts!).
