Recommendations to replace A-barriers

On my thread yesterday we chatted about getting rid of anti-cycling and anti-active-travel A-barriers on one of my large local housing estates. I'm planning to have a go at a dozen or so on trunk routes first eg

Do anyone have any ideas what I should suggest these be replaced with?

I'm inclined to "take the damned things away and just leave a gap", but what if the resulting gap would be 1.5m or 2m wide that a car can go through? For that I'm quite inclined to go for one of these, which are present on the most recent spot of the same estate:

Are there any problems with either of these basic principles - ie gap or posts? 

Thanks

Matt
