Blocked cycle route - South Manchester

Hi - for those living in South Manchester I was wondering if anyone else has come across the new barrier put across Brooks Drive in Hale Barnes. This is the road that gives access between the A538, Hale Road, and Roaring Gate Lane and the lanes beyond. Its a very useful & quiet north to south route. In the last few weeks it has been completely blocked off by a 10ft high metal fence.

Anyone interested in this as a through route could do with complaining to Trafford Council through their 'Report-it' website.
