Door LOCKED when it shouldn't be - Forget about Freeman

I’m PRETTY sure this door is meant to be open is it not? I’ve checked walkthroughs and all sorts. The door for them is just open. The lock cannot be destroyed, I cannot jump over the fence and there is also nothing else in this small area that can help me progress.

Is this a bug or am I missing something?

Shoot the lock? Not crowbar, that usually doesn’t go through barriers.
Could be that there is an event that you skipped.

The 1.0 beta made it unopenable and forced the player to climb the pipes to the side of it.

I do not know why.

Okay, not a problem, that would be fine BUT I tried to do that and there is an invisible wall there. I can’t hop over the fence at all

look closely at the pipes there is an opening go for that.
