I can't see a thread/issue about this, although it has been there for 9 months now.
At the end of march this year, the metal barriers shown appeared in Teversham, by the school, along with a sign indicating that the bike route starts at the barriers.
Previously the path started earlier, near the school. I can understand this wasn't ideal, due to the school being there, however, there is now no way to access the bike path legally except by riding up a kerb and across the grass.
I have therefore been carefully riding up to the gate since then when using this route.
I was annoyed about this an considered complaining at the time but I foolishly assumed as long as I was careful this was a live and let live situation and everyone would be fine with it, but today someone gave me abuse for this, so now I am annoyed and wondering who I can complain to about the restriction of the cycle route that was there previously.
Incidentally there was nothing up in the area about this happening, although I cycle through there regularly. (I don't live in Teversham though).
