First off, going on the streetview, I wouldn't say the road with reddish
colouring & 'cobblestones' (shown white on your sketch) is
pedestrian/cycle exclusive. It appears that vehicles, such as
deliveries, are allowed. I think there would be bollards if not.
Does the signpost give any clues?
Bit unsure about the blue bits. It seems there's no bollards so in
theory could a vehicle be allowed to cross it, albeit very slowly. What
type of kerbs do these blue areas have.
Also if there's no a gap in the wall, how do you cycle through it?
Does the LCN have a number? If so tag it, preferably in a relation.
General mapping tip: You can go as detailed as you like - if it's
physical, you can map it (given time & patience).
Personally I don't tag pavements that are not separated from the road by
grass verge etc.
