UPDATE 11/7/22 just completed TPT survey with this comment about this access: As a trishaw pilot I can just about get through the double row of bollards barrier at Urmston/Ashton on Mersey but it would be impossible with any passengers on board. There are other barriers in Trafford which are impossible to access with or without passengers. The surface is poor because it turns to mud in poor weather. UPDATE THE LATEST STANDARDS ARE IN LTN1/20 WHICH REQUIRES A WIDTH OF 1.5M ! ALSO THEY STATE THAT APPROACHES TO GAPS SHOULD BE SIMPLE (UNLIKE THIS COMPLICATED ARRANGEMENT) Urmston access link to TPT near River Mersey . The gap between bollards is only 1.05 metres and the distance measured diagonally is less than 1.2 metres measured at right angles it's even less at 1.05 metres. The reflective strips on the bollards are useful. These bollards have been placed close to a bend.
The spacing of these bollards does not meet the standard recommended in local transport note

From LTN 2/08
8.14.4 Bollards are the preferred method of access control for larger vehicles, spaced a minimum of 1.2 metres apart, preferably 1.5 metres. For an additional deterrent effect, they can be installed as two staggered rows with a minimum 1.2 metres between rows (see Figures 8.5 and 8.6). Bollards should ideally be placed at least 5 metres from any bend or junction, so that riders can approach them straight on. Bollards can be hazardous on unlit routes and at sites where forward visibility is restricted by the layout or by other users.
