The tag barrier=entrance defines an opening (a gap or hole) in a linear barrier=*. There is nothing to limit a passage through the barrier at this place. access=yes is understood.

Warning: iD editor since version 2.15 is proposing to transform this tag into entrance=yes. These tags are not the same.
