Thanks for the suggestions.
For cycle_barrier the wiki says "barriers positioned along paths,
footways, cycleways or tracks".
In this case it is none of those ways, it is a full width road with
vehicle access to both sides. But one side is private access and the
other is public access (from the other ends).
I believe this barrier has been erected by the residents of the private
road, rather than the local authority. It's not clear what it achieves
which a conventional row of bollards would not.
Here's the Google streetview:
(I haven't mapped it from Google, I actually walked through it
yesterday. :) )
As you can see, it has been rendered totally ineffective for other than
motor vehicles by users pushing past one end. How do we map that?
