Bicycle deflection rail removal

Thank you to the Brisbane City Council for deciding to remove the bicycle deflection rails (banana bars) on the network. These have been hated by cyclists for quite some time - especially on busy cycle links.
I have already seen the benefit on my cycle route via the V1. The hazardous banana bars on the entrance to the bikeway from O'Keefe Street were recently removed. This is a significant safety improvement.
The purpose of the banana bars in this location were never really clear as it is extremely unlikely that a car will access the path as there is a fence along O'Keefe Street.
