Road barriers too narrow to permit a standard bike through without lifting.

Reported via desktop in the Other street furniture category anonymously at 12:52, Tue 3 August 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 2911107.

These new barriers are either incorrectly made or fitted. My Scott pedal bike is unable to pass through without luggage being removed and the rear wheel being lifted off the ground to clear these triangular spikes. The rear axle is wider than the provided space, leading me to think the triangular spikes are fitted the wrong way up and too high off the ground. This is less than ideal on a dedicated cycle route, especially when green travel is being promoted. I did raise this matter via fix my street, but it was closed off without reply. A reply would be appreciated, thank you.
