Promoting peace, harmony and shared use
It's always good to make the best use of your shared spaces. So if you've got a nice pedestrian bridge that's nice and wide, why not PUT A BLOODY GREAT BIG FENCE ACROSS ONE END SO EVERYONE HAS TO GET THROUGH A THREE FOOT GAP?
Honestly, what is the point of this? There were bollards there to stop cars anyway, it won't stop the motorbikes that cut through (which aren't a danger because they always seem to be careful and the path is the width of a road) and it'll just make conflicts where before there were none.
Stupid, stupid, stupid. It's enough to make me want to fire up the angle grinder and dig out the hacksaw.
