In Poland >2 m wide sidewalk along road with >50 km/h max speed is automatically
allowing cycling.

Cycleway without footway along it is automatically allowing pedestrians.

Both can be negated by explicit signs.


Unsegregated combinations of footway and cycleway is very popular, more popular
than segregated version in many places.
