Also the lhs has no signage on the pavement to indicate if cycling is permitted. The road is dangerous here because of lorries from Parker Drive.Cycleway:

Problem

171435Photo #171435As you exit the bridge, there is a high curb if you wish to turn right, and a sloped path if you want to turn left. I have no idea how wheelchair users might navigate this. Cyclists either have to go over the steep curb to turn right, or go partly down the slope to the left and then make a hard right turn on the pathway. This can be tricky if you encounter groups of children from the nearby school, dog walkers, other cyclists etc.Track:

171076Photo #171076Traffic through the park is unnecessary and dangerous.

170535Photo #170535The traffic calming and widening measures are a good plan, and they should be made permanent without the temporary "covid-bollards".
Currently the "bollarded" areas are not really usable as pedestrian pavements, nor are they accessible to cyclists. Cyclists are currently forced into the narrowed road together with motor-traffic. This is not safe for cyclists.
