It appear that Sierra are doing some works to the pavement/roadway here but its not clear what. A widened pavement is the very least that can be achieved with the cycle parking removed. Other cheap and easy immediate options for College Green:
1 remove unused items of street furniture such as telephone kiosks (who would make a call here!)
2. replace the ugly industrial street lighting. I would suggest a column similar to those at the GPO as an interim measure.
3. declutter all that extra rubbish signage put in place for BusGate. we know it is there now.
4. remove all the brown finger signage (including Mr Waxy Museums colection) and install proper wayfinding.

Of course the whole area needs a thorough analysis and a visionary plan but in the meantime lets just do some basic things! The above could be done in a matter of days and I bet the the result would be striking.
