E&C: loadsa cycles, no toucans

The railings and cycle parking outside the London College of Communication are jampacked with bicycles
 And the underpasses, where the southern roundabout was, are being replaced by surface crossings. Given the roads remain unfriendly for nervous cyclists, the wide pavements and surface crossings would be ideal for shared pedestrian/cyclist use.
And the crossings should be Toucan crossings (so two can cross - cyclist and pedestrian).  TfL wrote to me last July saying, "I can confirm that the Toucan Crossings will be installed at the junction."  As the photo below shows they're not Toucans yet!
