Spotted on the cycle path outside Jaguar Whitley.
I suppose the justification for these barriers is that they will slow cyclists approaching the road - to make sure that they give way to motorists. Three points:
- There's an upward gradient on cycle path as it approaches the road, so cyclists will slow anyway
- Most cyclists will surely avoid the barriers by cycling on the pedestrian path
- If this were the Netherlands, the motorists would be expected to give way to the cyclists
