Initial thoughts?

Map the way on the right as a barrier=fence height= 2.1?

then the highway=footway with covered=yes

Nothing in the wiki to say the covering has to be 'solid', 'opaque' etc.

This kind of structure is appearing on overhead footways to stop people 
throwing object onto traffic underneath, though it can be fully enclosing.
