Yes I also think it's fantastic. Jamaica Road is SO much nicer and user-friendly without them. My understanding is that there've been a few too many cyclists that found themselves squashed between a lorry and 'protective' railings, that it was decided it would be safer without them. Anyway, am all in favour.

Here, here. And can we get rid of the shed in front of the station entrance too?

So notices announcing their removal don't actually mean anything's likely to happen very soon.

I'm sure they were there yesterday and now they've gone - certainly all around the roundabout. It's so much more spacious. Now we just need the phasing on the pedestrian crossing by the bus stop northbound on New Kent Road put back to what it was and all will be well.
