I have not seen any cyclists using this footpath.
Will parents who have children in pushchairs be able to get through the barrier.

I have seen a few use it, mainly at weekends when four or five use it. It looks to me as it could be to stop motor cycles using it as a shortcut.

Cyclists should not be riding on any footpath, if this makes them get off and push their bikes? that is a big plus for all other users.

Could someone who needs to use a mobility scooter please use this path, then let us know if it's a problem.

I don't think parents walking to the new school would fit through with a double buggy .

Midway, pardon my ignorance, please could you say where this obstruction is? So I can go there and measure it.

The footpath is now reduced to 23 inches or 585 mm wide and the barrier is 34 inches or 865mm from the ground. Does anyone know how wide and high a double buggy or a mobility scooter is.

Chill out Hector, no-one said they were going to ride down it, just how I would overcome this obstacle if I wanted to get past with a bike.

I suppose the more adventurous could pop a wheelie and raise their handlebars that way :-P

Grandad, have you had chance to see if Grandma will fit though the gap yet ?
please (if poss) could you provide a picture to show if it is a problem or not to people who have to use a disability mode of transport?
Ps. I know a bloke who has got lots of christmas lights, city centre stuff, do you want to put an offer in ?
