99722Photo #99722I guess they thought this old piece of path would be acceptable within this huge motorway building project.

If someone ever did shut this gate properly and someone in a wheelchair needed to open it, it would be extremely difficult to do so due to the area around the latch being unsurfaced. The gate effectively separates one housing area from the path to another. This isn't on a farm!

A bus stop impasse? It appears the intent is that cyclists using this cycle lane should use the dropped kerb to join the footway and go around the back of the bus shelter and along the shared footway ahead, or join the main carriageway and stop using the cycle route. See also #99493.

Quite why a proper bus stop bypass wasn't installed here I don't know. The bus shelter should be moved closer to the boarder and the segregated cycle track extended around the back. The transition to shared footway could then occur nearer the mini-roundabout (see #99492), if it wasn't to continue further.
