Pedestrian barriers in Hackney, London

Also called "guard railings", presumably to guard peds against motor traffic, these just spare drivers the inconvenience of looking out for peds. At the same time, they prevent peds from crossing the road where they want to, and make them slalom around a traffic island in the middle (this often, means as a ped you need two traffic light phases to cross one road!).
