    How would you use that in a 'barrier' free design?

    If you look at the north east LRT you have a bike path right beside the rails, no fence. All you need is a higher curb, or low median to keep cars from slipping into the rails in the winter. We don't need to overbuild like they already did on the south portion with high medians, the post and chains on a concrete railbed.
