I looked at
and it looks like what I'd have tagged as cycle_barrier which was
taken out of the proposal at some point, and it recommends
traffic_calming=chicane instead. It looks like it is designed to
slow cyclists down rather than prevent them using the path, so that
would make sense.

The photo at
is different from what you uploaded, but not all that much so.
