A continuous physical barrier so that one cannot cross at will between
the cycleway and roadway. This may be a Jersey barrier or even a line
of raised pavement markers but is normally a strip of grass or hard
surface. For example in
http://www.truewheelers.org/cases/vassarst/index.htm the separation is
curbed areas with plants. (There is however no separation here between
the cycleway and footway, so those should probably be combined as a
single path with oneway:bicycle=yes.)
