Looking at the photo, did you mean that 'the barriers close off the footpaths on one side of the road but not the other' ?Mike Hodgson wrote: " That crossing is also asymmetrical in that the barriers close off the footpaths on one side of the line but not the other. .... "

That would obviously apply at an AHB too, although I've never noticed a clearly delineated footpath on an AHB. I can think of an ABCL with separate pedestrian/cyclist lights, but that also seems not to be the case here. Is this crossing unusual or have I simply failed to notice cases where the footpath and the carriageway are not treated as one?
Thanks ex Probationer; I have not previously encountered these measures: Very interesting.ex Probationer wrote: " .... A slight deviation from the title, but this is Tangley AHB near Guildford in 2008, which has clearly delineated footpaths. There is also 'herding' fencing to the side of the footpath on the non-barrier approach together with a gate and a clear reminder not to cross when the lights are showing. This appears to be a regional variation with a few of this design 'south of the river', but there are none of this style in East Anglia. .... "
