The dangerous barriers at the end of Priory Avenue where there is a short cycling link to Amersham Hill

Reported via desktop in the Bollards or railings category anonymously at 17:57, Sunday 10 January 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

These dangerous barriers are extremely difficult to navigate. In fact, they made me fall over the other day while I was trying to cycle home. After climbing up the steep hill and turning left I was faced with an extremely narrow and difficult weave, and I clipped the edge of one of these dangerous metal barriers. These dangerous barriers do not belong here. They should be removed immediately before someone gets hurt. If you need to stop motor vehicle access here then use a single bollard. Note that the latest government guidance, Local Transport Note 1/20, forbids the installation of these type of dangerous barriers on cycle routes, and therefore these should be removed ASAP.
