Excerpt from Austroads Guide To Road Design; Part 6A

7.2.2 The installation of a fence at the side of a path used by cyclists is desirable where:

  • there is a steep batter or large vertical drop located in close proximity to the path
  • the path is adjacent to an arterial road and it is necessary to restrict cyclist access to the road
  • a bridge or culvert exists on a path
  • a hazard exists adjacent to a particular bicycle facility
  • cyclists are likely to be ‘blazing a separate trail’ at an intersection between paths or around a path terminal.
