New planters, and the toucan crossing is now free from obstruction. However, the tiny 'No Entry' on the bollard on the right is incorrect because this is just the way you would pass to turn right into the Kelvingrove Art Gallery grounds.

Most folk may cross without making use of the toucan crossing in Kelvin Way, but that's no reason to block the crossing with planters. This raises accessibility issues.
