Footpath closure dangerous for pedestrians

Fences around the Ace Video building on St Asaph St at High St block most of the footpath, leaving less than half a meter for pedestrians to squeeze by (assuming they’re not in a wheelchair or mobility scooter, in which case they can’t get past at all). Whilst this is an improvement from when pedestrians were required to walk on the road to get past the fence & parked cars (see FixMyStreet #5292 from March 2015), it still falls well short of the minimum standards from CTOC. Also, what is the point of the fencing? If it is to protect pedestrians from falling masonry or awnings, it is an epic fail. If it is to keep people out of the building, why does it need to take up all of the footpath?
