police? I would expect you could walk on the grass behind the guard rail, although I would see it more as a possibility for an emergency situation than actually planning to do so for leisure. It’s quite possible that the right of way extends behind the guardrail.

OpenStreetMap tagging could be sidewalk=no and shoulder=no, but only foot=no when it is actually forbidden.
Even if there was a shoulder it wouldn’t be nice or advisable to walk there ;-)
