Plastic fences on traffic islands

We all like trees and bushes on traffic islands, but wasting taxpayers' money on plastic fences?? Strangely enough, the same fences have appeared in most public parks and now surround every flower bed in town. Not only they look hideous, they are also very bad news for the environment. Somebody in China is polluting the environment, creating greenhouse gases that add to global warming so that any green space in Hong Kong can be fenced in. Wow, they might even call it "beautification".

The genius who made this decision should explain why plastic fences are necessary, given that these traffic islands are surrounded by roads. But i suspect that the ultimate reason lies in the fat envelope he got from some supplier in Guangdong.
