Commercial van parking in the painted cycle lane on Port Dundas Road.

The end of the widened footway and transition onto an on-road painted cycle lane along Alderman Road.

A "Cycle Quietway" has been signed through Knightswood, crossing Alderman Road here at Commore Drive. Again the buffer strip between the car parking bay and the cycle lane does not allow sufficient space for a car to be parked between th ... [more]

The road markings on part of Alderman Road have been renewed, including a buffer strip between the parking bays and the cycle lane, but there's really no point in painting it less than the width of a car away from the kerb.

Absolutely perfect timing. @GoBikeGlasgow @UofGsustain @PeopleByresRoad #paintIsNotProtection https://t.co/LENi1rbIkA

@morebikesplease @PeopleByresRoad @UofGsustain Here was two weeks ago. It's almost like there's a pattern...! Just shows the lack of consideration given to cycle infra that paint is even considered an option here. Anyone who uses the road r ... [more]

Paint is not protection @PeopleByresRoad @UofGsustain https://t.co/BF102sqsik

Entitled driver's reaction to #carfreeday https://t.co/E6vXC6RfX1

Precisely no-one ends their journey here, so why does the cycle lane end here?

Since my last visit painted cycle lanes have appeared on Hamilton Road west of Daldowie Road. Perhaps some of the extensive hatching could have been sacrificed in order to provide some segregation.

The narrow cycle lane on Kelso Street bridge with footway car parking. No waiting restrictions so the assumption must be that the council approves of this.

A cycle lane designed for car parking. Let's not pretend this is designed for cycling.

This is what a painted bike lane means @PeopleByresRoad @GlasgowCC @glendalegaelic @walkcyclevote St Andrew's Drive https://t.co/xSJ0xYx8OH

I don't suppose it matters that this van is parked in the Meiklewood Road cycle lane, since the cycle route turns right at the end of the road.

Junction potholes in the Meiklewood Road cycle lane.

The parking layby is again too narrow for ordinary cars to be reliably parked within, so eroding the buffer zone that is meant to contain door openings.

Cycle lane or not?

The painted cycle lane on Meiklewood Road goes around the bend, then vanishes for a bit.

The cycle lane on Meiklewood Road starts to move out from the kerb.

The cycle route is also a recommended route for lorry driving!

What is the point of advisory cycle lanes? Cumbernauld Rd today, both sides covered in parked cars @AnnaLangside @GlasgowCC @policescotland https://t.co/ze1547or7Z

Cycle lane + d/yellow lines at the foot of busy Gilmore Hill. Ideal parking place #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/xd0YZo2dOx

A pathetic worn-out narrow painted door-zone cycle lane in Kilmarnock Road from the council that won the "Achievements in Cycling" award at the 2017 Scottish Transport Awards.

I'm not sure what the purpose of this cycle lane is.

An 'End of Cycle Route' sign approaching the Northgate Road roundabout, but now the cycle route continues along to the end of Wallacewell Road. I don't know why the traffic island encroaches into the cycle lane.

Cycle lane on Wallacewell Road.

A painted cycle lane on North Hanover Street.

Someone using the central cycle lane on Cambridge Street.

More waste of paint by Glasgow City Council. The dual use of tin box storage may impress @Bob_Gunderson however... https://t.co/27FfCCrs0W

@ErnieMarples @magnatom @FMcAveety Presumably this "cycle lane" on Govan Rd is also included in km total #pointless https://t.co/ZbbBvLyXlq

More miles for #TeamGlasgow. That painted lane looks so safe (NOT). @GlasgowCC is #lettingtheteamdown https://t.co/YfcNzTVwRc

Painted cycle lanes on West Street. Perhaps the designer could look up the Traffic Signs Manual's road markings section to see how cycle lanes are meant to start.

Three coaches from Allander Travel parked partly on the footway, on double yellow lines and completely blocking the Colleges Route cycle lane on University Avenue.

How wide is a car door? Answer: a bloody lot wider than that "buffer"! @S4CGlasgow http://t.co/DGu9j9prVy

In the opposite direction to the Aikenhead Road cycle lane trial, a conventional advisory cycle lane has been provided, without full-time parking restrictions, and guess what happens.

At the end of the Aikenhead Road cycle lane trial there is a final traffic island with bollards, and the an advisory cycle lane continues until the Calder Street junction. The cycle lane passes a wide depot entrance.

The door-zone cycle lane in Albert Drive reverts to the kerbside.

The westbound cycle lane in Albert Drive is also in the door-zone.

The Albert Drive cycle lane reverts to the kerbside.

The Albert Drive cycle lane moves from kerbside to the door-zone.

The start of the Albert Drive cycle lane. Designed to be parked in.

@GoBikeGlasgow @GlasgowCC repainting lines and "bike lanes" on Highburgh Road. Car space too narrow, even for a mini! http://t.co/z8q3z3cGmB

Some @bollocksinfra from @GlasgowCC on Hyndland road. Tiny cycle lane with grate to trap wheels. Rest is in door-zone http://t.co/VD7CqQd0ac

Taking the easy option. Who makes these signs anyway? What's wrong with 'Drivers give space to cyclists' ? http://t.co/GfKiJvcQRD

@BCCletts @magnatom @pjakma there's a cycle lane under there somewhere. All cars for sale. Even swanky Masarati. http://t.co/ssLMxBiHzu

@magnatom @S4CGlasgow meanwhile in Pollokshields no #space4cycling here, just another door zone paint job. http://t.co/DgrhnjWr6T

More door zone death traps #GlasgowCycleInfraDay t.co/ME40Iu5fII

Spot the poorly designed & best ignored cycle lane.It's not very visible in real life either. #glasgowcycleinfraday t.co/DQcX0Oc4KQ

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

Govan Rd. Beneath this row of cars is a cycle lane. Better than 'door zone' across the road? #glasgowcycleinfraday http://t.co/lxOL7vpvOc

Oh the Garrioch Road "cycle path" is for school children??!! Explains the Chelsea tractors. #glasgowcycleinfraday http://t.co/azAMS1Yeu8

Still Garrioch Road "cycle path". #glasgowcycleinfraday http://t.co/HmJgGhMJDy

Garrioch Road "cycle path". #glasgowcycleinfraday http://t.co/D80Lx5RLGM

Cycled around Glasgow today. Lots of cars. Luckily the cycle lanes were there when I needed them most! http://t.co/hLz2ffZx4w

Multiple cycle provision, but none is particularly adequate. Shared-use footway along Pollokshaws Road into Haggs Road, and a faded cycle lane along the inside of the carriageway. Cyclists turning right to continue along Pollokshaws Road ha ... [more]

A couple of taxis parked in the cycle lane lead-in to an Advance Stop Line

Link path to Glasgow-bound NCN7 at Mellerstain Drive, but no dropped kerb. However, cycle lanes have been provided on the cul-de-sac road.

The cycle lanes in the cul-de-sac end before the supermarket junction, not even making it as far as the NCN7 crossing.

Bike lane. Any time you put 'em on the side, they're rendered useless!

Transfer from footway to roadway on so-called East End Regeneration Route, approaching Gallowgate junction, showing potential for left hook.

Overtaking lane especially for cyclists? Narrow central southbound cycle lane between opposing directions of motor traffic in Cambridge Street. See junction manoeuvres in #36438.

Turning manoeuvres across central southbound cycle lane, plus blocked northbound conventional cycle lane, in Cambridge Street

Start of central cycle lane on Cambridge Street. It wouldn't be so bad if it stayed this width, but it gets narrower. Note that cars overtaking double-parked car are infringing cycle lane for opposite direction.

Messy end to northbound cycle lane in Cambridge Street, from where it goes down ramp to underpass (see #36356)

Cycle lanes and Advance Stop Line on Cambridge Street. The narrow southbound cycle lane is between opposing directions of motor traffic!

Variable width cycle lane on Gartcraig Road, with unrestricted parking in cycle lane on one side of road

Pothole in worn-out cycle lane on Whitefield Road

Worn-out cycle lane on Whitefield Road, across Brand Street junction

Cycle lanes on Royston Road, but no Advance Stop Lines

Investing in Glasgows [sic] Roads? The investment in the resurfaced section ahead didn't extend as far as reinstating the road markings, including the cycle lanes, or providing waiting restrictions in them.

Faded out sign for Scotstoun Sports Centre on Kelso Street

Colleges Cycle Route direction sign on Clarence Drive on approach to Hyndland Road junction. Cycle lane infringement by motorists, due to narrow lanes. Poor road design.

More unrestricted car parking in cycle lane on Clarence Drive on Colleges Cycle Route. Presumably the direction for the city centre (omitted on sign) is straight on.

Cycle lanes with unrestricted car parking in Clarence Drive, on Colleges Cycle Route. Surely creating cycle lanes without any waiting restrictions, thus allowing car parking in them, is a waste of public money. The same result (unrestric ... [more]

Colleges Cycle Route direction sign approaching Broomhill Cross. Directions for cyclists turning left are given on the far side of the junction! Worn out cycle lane markings no longer visible.

Close-up of cycle signal in Crow Road at Broomhill Cross. Cycle signal goes green first while traffic opposite is turning right, and stays on through left turn filter and main green phases. However, cyclists not turning left should not use ... [more]

The second set of traffic signals on Crow Road approaching Broomhill Cross. There is a cycle lane and traffic signal on the inside for cyclists turning left into Clarence Drive. Cyclists going straight on must use Advance Stop Line outside ... [more]

The first set of traffic signals on Crow Road approaching Broomhill Cross. There is a cycle lane on the inside for cyclists turning left into Clarence Drive.

Narrow cycle lanes on Crow Road, with narrow separation zone outside of car parking. Colleges Cycle Route.

Unrestricted car parking in cycle lanes on Corkerhill Road, outside sports centre with its own off-road car park (which was half empty at the time of photo).

Narrow door-zone cycle lanes on Kilmarnock Road. Cyclists cycling outside of the cycle lanes get extra hassle from passing motorists. Layby isn't even wide enough for normal-sized cars to park in!

Narrow kerbside cycle lane added as an after-thought after footway upgrading, to reinstate cycle route originally installed to connect NCN 75 to Central Station

Narrow cycle lane on Wellington Street, part of cycle route between Central Station (see #22116 and #12067) and near NCN 75 (see #28677)

Traffic calming scheme that uses cycle lanes on dual carriageway to calm the traffic, and the markings have even been reinstated after resurfacing! Unfortunately, some motorists have not worked out what the cycle lanes are for.

Narrow door-zone cycle lanes on A77 Kilmarnock Road. Photo also shows typical standard of road maintenance in 2011 Glasgow.

Unusual triangular cycle lane between bus stop and side road, in Seaward Street

The Shakespeare Street contraflow cycle track has been replaced by a false one-way street at the new Tesco goods exit. Shakespeare Street is part of a link route between the River Kelvin cycleway and the Forth & Clyde Canal. Now that the ... [more]

Poor quality cycle lanes on Southbrae Drive.

Southbrae Drive after resurfacing this summer. Cycle lanes can be seen in the distance on a section that wasn't resurfaced. It's now nearly winter and the cycle lanes have still not been reinstated.

Part of Southbrae Drive was resurfaced this summer but so far the road markings, including cycle lanes, have not been reinstated.

Right turn lane for cycles only at point on dual carriageway where motor vehicles cannot turn right. Connects Alderman Road cycle lanes to Colleges Cycle Route in Jordanhill.
