The Bridge in Tocil Woods

It’s been discovered that the bridge on the track between main campus and Gibbet Hill needs replacing. As it’s feared that the bridge would collapse under the weight of a motor vehicle, their entry has been blocked by placing obstructions on either side of the bridge.

There’s no problem in seeing the barriers. But what would happen if two cyclists approached the bridge at the same time in opposing directions?

The speed at which two cyclists approached the bridge would be the sum of their individual speeds, perhaps 20 to 40 mph. Cyclists would have to leave a gap of at least 40cm between their wheels and the barriers/railing as the latter are quite tall.
