The lady who was injured after falling over the now called "cycle lane defenders" is hopefully making a full recovery.
The website of the hazards states...
Rosehill rubber cycle lane defenders provide cycle lane segregation and are safer for cyclists because they provide continuous or light segregation by excluding other traffic from the cycle lane. They can be installed to comply with Cycling England and Sustrans guidelines, making cycle lanes 2.0m wide whenever practicable, or 1.5m minimum.
