The finished pop-up cycle lane on Great Western Road.

Bus boarders have now been installed on the Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane, and await markings. The transition is a bit rough, but not as bad as the step for bus passengers at the raised kerb.

Bus boarders have now been installed on the Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane, and await markings.

The end of the Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane, at the Cowdenhill Road/Lincoln Avenue junction. The cycle lane stops just after the bus stop. The bus boarder is still under construction.

Indiscriminate car parking in the Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane. Ideally, this section could be rebuilt, with the cycle lane going to the left of a new car parking layby where the cycle lane is.

The Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane. Some of the traffic cylinders were missing on this section.

The Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane. Note that the bus driver is picking up the passenger on the street corner rather than at the bus stop since no alternative arrangements have been made at most of the bus stops yet.

The Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane at the turn-off for the canal path. Since the cycle lane stops at Lincoln Avenue, this is where many will leave it for the longer route to town along the canal path. The sign is obscured by tree bran ... [more]

A temporary bus stop deployed while the Great Western Road cycle lane is built. This was the only temporary bus stop sign I saw in use.

A bus boarder under construction for the Great Western Road cycle lane. There is a temporary bus stop on the next corner.

The start of the Great Western Road cycle lane. The motorists have found somewhere else to park - on the footway.

No bus boarder at this bus stop, requiring anyone cycling to overtake stopped buses in the busy outside lanes. The cycle lane starts just after the bus stop.

No cycle lane on this section of Great Western Road, just arrows urging drivers to move out.

Roadworks for the installation of the westbound cycle lane on Great Western Road.

The pop-up cycle lane on Great Western Road is to end at Lincoln Avenue. After that, there are just discontinuous peak hour bus lanes.

Roadworks for the installation of the Great Western Road cycle lane. The crossing between Keal Avenue and Kearn Avenue is still no better for cycling across (see #100425).

Roadworks for the installation of the Great Western Road cycle lane. The marking for the start of the cycle lane appear to be unusually long. The marking for the cycle lane itself is another unusual choice.

Roadworks for the installation of the Great Western Road cycle lane. Here 'bus stop' markings have been removed, and the road marked out for the installation of a temporary bus boarder.

Roadworks for the installation of the Great Western Road cycle lane.

Roadworks for the installation of the Great Western Road cycle lane. There were a lot of cars parked inside the cones.

Start of the roadworks for the installation of the Great Western Road cycle lane.

Signage for the roadworks for the installation of the Great Western Road cycle lane, so no cycle lane on the sliproad then?

No provision for safe cycling on Duntreath Avenue.

When Drumry Road East was first closed off at the Great Western Road roundabout, the traffic order exempted cycles from the closure. But nothing was done to facilitate cycle access, and even now that there is a shared-use footway on the oth ... [more]

A pedestrian crossing across Great Western Road that could be upgraded to accommodate cycling between Kearn Avenue and Keal Avenue.

A pedestrian crossing across Great Western Road that could be upgraded to accommodate cycling between Keal Avenue and Kearn Avenue.

A major road crossing, with the direct route across the dual carriageway blocked by a barrier at the far side and no dropped kerb, and only a pedestrian crossing to the left to get across to the residential roads on the far side.

The spacious Great Western Road, with no space set aside for safe cycling.

A sign for the Forth & Clyde Canal pointing the wrong way, and 'No Through Road' signs on the road that leads there, without 'except cycles' plates.

Great Western Road - plenty of room but no protected space for cycling.

A gate with gaps both sides protecting the access path from Great Western Road to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath. The curved walls are similar to gateways created at a number of cycle path accesses around Glasgow.

A gate at the end of the path from the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath at Great Western Road, with gaps both sides, but only access to the footway and westbound carriageway.

Linking the two halves of Crow Road for cycling would provide a local alternative to the hostile A739 dual carriageway, but motorists' needs appear to come first.

No room for cycle infrastructure on Great Western Road? There seems to be ample room for everything else.

A dropped kerb and a short section of shared-use footway, leading to a toucan crossing across Great Western Road, for those not keen on making the right turn on the road.

A short section of shared-use footway leading to the toucan crossing across Great Western Road, but no dropped kerb, unlike #87530.

This is Gt Western Rd. That's an inadequate cycle approach to an inadequate ASL. #glasgowcycleinfraday @GlasgowCC http://t.co/KSp2RPunVv
