A connection between Netherton Road and the Forth & Clyde Canal, with damaged sign, mud, and a chicane barrier.

I'm sure a better entrance to this path could be built at Knightscliffe Avenue. The plot to the left was only recently rebuilt.

A barrier hindering access to the National Cycle Network, near the Kelvin Aqueduct.

No proper crossing across Shieldhall Road at the roundabout to follow the destinations on the Cardonald Quietway sign. As for the Renfrew and Braehead sign, the shared footway doesn't start until the Hardgate Road junction.

No proper crossing across Shieldhall Road to the path at the far side of the roundabout, to access the destinations on the sign in #98986.

After the smooth new path from the Springburn Expressway footbridge is this mess!

The barriers on the Springburn Expressway footbridge remain in place. Sighthill seen during redevelopment, with some old and new buildings visible, and off to the right, reinstated access from the footbridge to Pinkston Drive.

The finishing touches remain to be done at the new path into the Clay Pit local nature reserve.

The northern footway of Govan Road is being rebuilt for shared use.

Part of official cycle route to Southern General. Was meant to be widened to allow disabled/child trailers. Wasn't. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/6i8cnNCE6N

More obligatory shots for #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 - the lauded but distinctly average red tube over the expressway. I mean, it's fine but... https://t.co/dToSnqZnSh

A barrier with a gap at the side on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath.

NCN75 closed at the SECC due to the Festival of Motoring of all things.

Barriers across the cycle path to Silverburn, to stop people going straight out onto the road where drivers can't even avoid hitting the signs. Again, no traffic control to help people cross the road, just a traffic island.

I didn't think it was possible for this crossing to become more farcical, but the roadway has been closed, meaning the cycle route bumps kerbs for no purpose.

Still no progress on getting this barrier removed. See #44115.

NCN7 ahead and possibly NCN75 across Bells Bridge shut for a running event. The sign refers to a diversion but it is not clear where the diversion signs are. See also #90343.

One of two people on bikes I saw using this section of the Garscadden Way.

The Garscadden Way almost indiscernible approaching the Drumchapel Road crossing. Only the old access barrier gives a clue to it once being a Strathclyde Regional Council cycle route.

A new toucan crossing on Beith Street for the new Lidl store, but needlessly difficult to get to from Anderson Street due to its position and all the clutter, including kerbs, in the way.

Uncontrolled pedestrian crossing next to the Forge Retail Park's service access (see #89948) and on the left the path through Bellgrove.

A barrier across end of path through Bellgrove. After a small break at a car park serving the flats here, this path continues right the way across to Bellgrove Street. There is an uncontrolled crossing a short distance to the right, and a s ... [more]

Railing and kerb present obstacles to anyone wanting to cycle to residential Barrowfield Street, although the far end of the turning head does have a dropped kerb.

Barriers each side of the Clyde Gateway toucan crossing still present an obstacle to anyone using Baltic Street as a through route on a bike.

Lots of barriers outside Dalmarnock Station result in people cycling on the footway in order to get to the fancy path, such as is seen in #89937.

A wider view of the toucan crossing shown in #89015 that leads only to the bus stop in the distance (beside the bus). The toucan crossings do not connect anywhere where it is legal to cycle other than the carriageway. The crossings are barr ... [more]

On the right of the crash barrier the A89 dual carriageway and its single footway, to the left the currently shut path beneath the bridges southwards. Off to the left by the fence, the path to Rhindmuir Road.

This ramp forms part of NCN75 and has been closed for a few weeks. See #88472.

I don't know what the purpose of this barrier is, but it isn't to direct cyclists onto the road, because as we saw at #88345 they need to be on the footway to get around the barrier there.

The Cotton Street access to the Clyde Walkway. A choice of going onto the footway on the approach, or bumping the kerb next to the gate.

The Shore Street access to the Clyde Walkway.

Kerbs make the route around the private yard on the left more difficult, impeding access to the Dunn Street toucan crossing.

Unfortunately the alignment of the Dunn Street toucan crossing does not match the alignment of Baltic Street. Even with the private yard on the left, it could be arranged better than this.

Shared use footway blocked by barriers around derelict building, with no diversion. Just as well the street is extremely quiet and doesn't really need shared use footways.

Motorbike bypass for traffic boom at the University of Strathclyde. I guess bicycle users could use it too.

The Baltic Street alignment has been obstructed with railings both sides at the Clyde Gateway toucan crossing. This side doesn't even have a dropped kerb! See also #87992.

The way between Baltic St and the Clyde Gateway toucan crossing has been obstructed both sides with a railing. See also #87993.

The sign in #86811 reckons this path is wheelchair accessible. It was difficult enough steering a bike through the narrow gap.

Close-up of #71301, showing bus shelter with cycle track diverted around it.

One of the four bus shelters plonked on the Clyde Gateway cycle track, with the cycle track crudely diverted around as an afterthought. Seen closer in #71302. No cycle access to blocked-off side street.

A road narrowing at an old railway bridge in Ashfield Street, where a barrier has been erected to stop vehicles being driven through the parapet on one side.

A bit of a gap between the long-term temporary bridge barriers and the resumption of the cycle track segregation, due to the gateway. Perhaps the temporary barrier could be lengthened a bit.

The problem of the bridge over the railway still awaits a proper solution.

An attempt has been made to beautify the entrance to the Kelvin Walkway at Kelvindale Road, but this has been spoilt not just by the barriers, but by signs pointing to "National Cycle Network Route 7". It is NCN756 as can be see on the stic ... [more]

While the barriers have replaced worse barriers, the problem of the unnecessarily steep ramp remains, and the people I saw before and after taking this photo both dismounted rather than attempt to ride up this ramp. Also the bollard sugg ... [more]

@carsickglasgow @GlasgowCC What is this barrier here for? Duntreath Ave, Drumry. http://t.co/r5SrZOeqOF

Cyclist forced into being pedestrian on the Off/On ramp to canal route NCN754 at Lochburn Rd. #glasgowcycleinfraday http://t.co/VNXFH6NQPR

Road and path closures for the Commonwealth Games. The Clydeside Expressway remains open though.

Road closure in Minerva St for the Commonwealth Games. The covered walkway to the SECC is also closed.

Triple barrier on path connecting closed section of Bantaskin Street at the Skaethorn Bridge to Kelvin Walkway. Why?

On the left, offside access to the Forth & Clyde Canal at Kelvin Dock. (Access to the towpath can only be gained from here by crossing over one of the lock gates.) On the right, access to the Kelvin Walkway. Poor surface all round.

Steep and slippery approach to triple barrier at foot of ramp constructed under Safer Routes to Schools programme.

Barrier across path to canal

Access road crossing on NCN7 at Yoker sports centre

Barriers at road crossing on Kelvin Cycleway UPDATE 2015: These barriers have now been replaced, by different barriers - see #64259.

Chicane barriers on footbridge across Springburn Expressway. Route sign is facing the wrong way.

No access to cycle track on so-called East End Regeneration Route from adjacent stopped-up streets

Gate with gap at side for cycles on road up to Waukmill Reservoir

Left or right? Full width of cycleway blocked by barrier chicane on converted footbridge across Phoenix Road.

Fixed barrier at end of path through Toryglen Park to ASDA store.

The section of the Colleges Cycle Route that goes up and under the motorway sliproads at St George's Cross. Barriers, gradients, last autumn's leaf-fall. Not surprisingly many cyclists choose to go through the stopped up section of New City ... [more]
