A cursory glance at satellite mapping shows it to be well defined, and marked. But it will also highlight that where you cross the southbound A1 to the south of the roundabout (and likewise the northbound A1 to the north) it is highly dangerous. You have to cross three lanes of traffic, and there is always a flow of some sort, either from the A1 or from the side roads.

So far no one has mentioned the hazard tag. Surely that is the obvious
and flexible solution here?

I have tagged some dangerous open mine shafts in Cornwall with
hazard=yes. Being too strict about what is "subjective" can get silly.
