Love the look of the fence rails, the way they sit out.
I hope they separate walkers too, though in that part of the Inner West walkers are likely to walk on the cycleway anyway and then get pissy with cyclists as well.
It is good that demand leads to improvements.
when I use to ride around the bay a bit past Hawthorn canal which has separated footpath and bike path approx half of the peds were on the footpath only and the other half were on the bike only paths
I'd prefer no markings at all, just signs noting it is a shared area for bikes and peds. Makes everyone pay more attention and dissipates the 'entitlement' mentality ('you're in MY lane!')
Of course, even better would be separated paths for cyclists and peds. Easily done if you take a car lane away.
It's as mikesbytes says on the separated paths.
It's a special flavour of stupidity and entitlement in those parts.
I still remember edging past this family group (all walking side by side) on the bike path, the dad pushing a pram. As I passed I said something like "the footpath is that way". He called out as I went past "I've got wheels too, buddy"!
And the ironic thing about that separated path is that the footpath only has a better view of the bay so even if the paths weren't restricted it would be the best path to walk on
