Footpath blocked, pedestrians forced onto segregated cycle lane

Temporary fences have been put up outside some of the bars on the southern side of St Asaph St just west of Colombo St to corral patrons wishing to enter their establishments. Unfortunately these entirely block the footpath in at least 2 locations, forcing pedestrians onto the segregated cycle lane. This presents a hazard for both cyclists and pedestrians. Are these bars really allowed to take over the footpath like this? If not, maybe they could fund works to either widen the footpath or provide a barrier between the footpath and the cycle lane?
