I agree that it's really badly designed, and it always involves jockying for position when you're driving, which is so dangerous for cyclists and pedestrians.
I'd support removing all the barriers to make it more pedestrian friendly, and introducing a diagonal crossing.
Something also needs to be done about the left turn onto BHS from Long Lane
, the green man crossing comes on just as the traffic lights on LL turn green, so people set off at speed and suddenly hit a red light as they go around the corner, I've seen quite a few shunts where people obviously weren't expecting to have to stop.
That whole junction is just bad!
