This might be a semi-decent stab at filtered permeability / cycle street network. The bollards are OK. Maybe a little close, and of the unforgiving wooden design, but otherwise OK. They completely failed at building a flush interface between the two surfaces, though. This is quite a sharp jolt, especially for someone in a tricycle or recumbent.

Meanwhile, the works are preparing to narrow the shared-use path in order to create yet another traffic lane! It's like I stepped into a time machine and ended up back in the 20th century, with the incessant and insane road-widening monster rolling on...
