A New Barrier

At Shelton Lock a new school is being built, and an access road has been constructed crossing the nearby Cycle Path.
The photograph was taken on NCN Route 6 between Alvaston and Shelton Lock, looking towards Derby, with the school to the right and Jubilee Road to the left.
There is a man controlling the gate, which prohibits the passage of  pedestrians and cycles when there is motor traffic on the access road.
The gate is left open outside working hours.
Completion of the school is due in September 2012 and both the gate and the access road will then be removed.

Not only a gate, but a man sitting there all day in case a lorry turns up.

Would these rules have been imposed on Burnaston House?

A similar situation has existed for some time on the Bell Lane, Smalley access to Shipley Park, with an access road for the opencast mining in the area.
