Shared footway on Smith Street and ramp into car park, and access to NCN7 in the background.

Surrey Street has had a cycle connection to Pollokshaws Road ever since this end of the street was closed to motor traffic as part of the Route Action Plan programme, but it is not clear how one is to join the South City Way cycle tracks.

The eastern end of the Herbertson Street cycle track suffers from a severe fly parking problem, with cars and vans parked on the footway as well as over the dropped kerb for exiting the cycle track.

Van parking obstructing the path between Renfrew Street and St Georges Road at Charing Cross.

The road closure on Denmark Street does not permit through cycling, even though Hawthorn Street now has protected cycle lanes. Access for pedestrians only.

The new ramp from Firhill Road and Garscube Road up to the Forth & Clyde Canal and the bridge to the Claypits nature reserve is now open. In addition to the ramp, there are steps available for pedestrians. Part of the Nextbike hire stati ... [more]

The toucan crossing across Argyle Street has been replaced by a pedestrian crossing and a separate cycle crossing. However, the approach is a bit cramped behind a bit of wall. See also #173170.

A wide bridge across the M80 motorway and railway for walking and, presumably, cycling.

Despite the provision of a sign proudly pointing this way, there is still no dropped kerb to allow cyclists proper smooth access onto the carriageway of Springburn Way from the toucan crossing across Atlas Road. Not pictured, but while I ... [more]

A Nextbike hire station has been added to Shields Road at the start of the Southwest City Way.

The Garscube Road cycle track is now open for business! Although the elephants feet crossing indicates to cross to Hinshaw Street, there are no turning restrictions, so it is possible to also continue along Garscube Road or head up Firhi ... [more]

A diagonal road filter retro-fitted with full cycle access.

A diagonal road filter, with full access for cycling. But no dropped kerbs for pedestrians to cross by.

No provision for cycling through the road closure at the end of Clunie Road onto Corkerhill Road.

No provision for cycling through the road closure at the end of Ladybank Drive into Corkerhill Road, but since the kerb is low on this side, it can be bumped. Council policy says road closures should exempt cycles from the closure.

No provision for cycling through the road closure at the end of Moness Drive onto Corkerhill Road.

A rather poor combination of cycle lane, bus stop and parking layby on Hawthorn Street. See also #171175.

The start of the Garscube Road cycleway, seen coming from the Queens Cross direction. Next time I'll try going between the first and second bollards rather than the second and third which was quite tight.

The end of the Garscube Road cycleway, but there is a short length of cycleway to the left in Hinshaw Street. Construction is underway to the right, of a new ramp for access to the Forth & Clyde Canal. See update at #171178.

Still surfacing work outstanding at the south end of the Garscube Road cycle track.

Construction work at Clyde Place, including a replacement cycle path and cycle parking. The riverside path is open (to the right).

A split toucan crossing across Pollokshaws Road, at the end of the path from Bengal Street. A shared footway connects this to the entrance to Pollok Country Park.

A road closure in Saracen Street that does not permit through cycling, against Council Policy. In this case, the location of some dropped kerbs make it not too difficult to get around, but may be trickier with a non-standard cycle. Saracen ... [more]

A road closure in Barloch Street that does not permit through cycling.

Nonsense bollards.

Linthaugh Terrace meets Corkerhill Road, where NCN7 and NCN75 cross over to the footway on the far side of the dual carriageway. If not going via Pollok Park, northbound cyclists should stay on this side where there is a (now protected) cyc ... [more]

A Fire Path modified for through cycling, although the signage is unaltered. Three of the signs are probably larger than they need to be making them vulnerable to being twisted around to face the wrong way. The gap has only been marked for ... [more]

A Fire Path modified for through cycling, but the signage is unaltered and facing the wrong way. The gap is only marked for cycling in the opposite direction.

A Fire Path with no provision for cycling separating Potterhill Road and Linthaugh Road, and looking along Bonnyholm Avenue with NCN7 and NCN75 in the distance. The council's Active Travel directional signage can be seen on the far side of ... [more]

The access from Kinnell Avenue to the next part of the Paisley to Glasgow Cycle Route basically doesn't exist.

Cycle symbols have appeared at the entrance to the pedestrian precinct in Cambridge Street, apparently in contradiction to the 'No Vehicles' signs. Sauchiehall Street is a Core Path (which permits cycling), but Cambridge Street is not.

The new layout in Cambridge Street. A two-way cycle track has been provided between the underpass from Dundasvale Road to the Renfrew Street junction. The cycle track is continous and marked well across the Hill Street junction.

A damaged cycle parking stand on St Vincent Crescent. The bollards are facing the wrong way, exhibiting a white reflector on the left side of the road and red on the right side of the road. A sacrificial bollard on this side of the cycle pa ... [more]

The northern part of Dunlop Street, looking towards Argyle Street pedestrian precinct. Cycle parking is provided next to the bollards. The two rising bollards are both in the lowered position.

Former Fire Path at Allander Street where it meets Ashfield Street. No provision for cycling through, although not much in the way of hindrance either, and the area awaits redevelopment. Through motor traffic here would be undesirable due t ... [more]

The path has clearly been built to align with Bell's Bridge, but this alignment is nothing without a proper crossing. Instead, there's a staggered toucan crossing off to the right, as indicated by the sign. See also #93791 taken from the ot ... [more]

The dual path behind Blackburn Street and Plantation Square at Craigiehall Street.

Filtered permeability between Milnpark Gardens and Milnpark Street at Sussex Street, rectifying the main problem in #99410.

Unmarked dropped kerb connecting the southern portion of Shields Road to Nithsdale Road and the rest of Shields Road. The dropped kerb has clearly been retro fitted, but not marked as being for cycling.

The road closure in Avenuepark Street now has an opening to allow through cycling, correcting issue in #62876.

The southern end of the Garscube Road cycle track still hasn't been completed, but is at least now rideable. Top surface is all that is required. Further north, the path is complete up until Sawmillfield Street, with work in progress at the ... [more]

Cut-through between Kelvinside Avenue and the road at the side of Maryhill Fire Station.

Finishing work still required at the southern end of the Garscube Road protected cycle lane. It will connecting into the underpass and other existing cycle infrastructure through Cowcaddens.

The cycleway on Langlands Road has now been extended across Golspie Street.

An abandoned section of street in Craigton at Barfillan Drive. This could be reworked into a cycle link connecting to the underpass through to Craigton Road and the Asda supermarket.

A Fire Path on Carsaig Drive, with no provision for cycling through (cycle access through road closures being Glasgow City Council policy).

The path through Craigton, from Drymen Street to Barfillan Drive, interrupted by a Fire Path on Carsaig Drive. No dropped kerbs for crossing the road. This path provides access to the M8 underpass through to Craigton Road and the Asda super ... [more]

A Fire Path in Drymen Street, with no provision for cycling through (although just about physically possible with a standard bicycle).

The dropped kerbs either side of the road closure on Morven Street don't align. I noticed this too late and came straight off of the high kerb. See #152275.

This looked like a good cycle exemption from a road closure, but the dropped kerbs on each side of the strip don't align. See #152276.

Vegetation encroaching onto path near Gower Street, and evidence of people going across the grass instead.

Filtered permeability for pedestrians only in Dunard Street.

Filtered permeability for pedestrians only in Raglan Street.

The connection from the underpass to the new cycle track on Garscube Road.

Broken bollards and obstructive car parking in Clouston Street, where cycling through is permitted in the Traffic Regulation Order. The 'Keep Clear' road markings could do with being renewed.

Still no progress on fixing the riverside path.

Path from Provost Way to the riverside path bypassing the steeply graded path in #99172.

The straight across access from the Berryknowes Road flats to Kingsland Drive (see also #112402) has been blocked off, including to cycles. The turning head is used for fly car parking.

The straight across access from Kingsland Drive into the road in front of the Berryknowes Road flats has been closed off, without exempting cycles.

Road closures either end of an abandoned section of road in Craigton. It may suit formal conversion into a park, and there is already a small park the other side of Carsaig Drive.

Cycle access at Barfillan Drive.

A road closure with just a dropped (fallen) kerb at the side to enable cycle access. Needs formalised with a proper exemption.

Cycle access at Maryland Drive maintained during roadworks.

A poor transition between one section of riverside path and another, which could be made much smoother to allow users to concentrate on not hitting the posts instead.

Now that the cabins are away and the street has returned to normal, it appears that nothing was done to improve cycle permeability. There is an off-centre dropped kerb, but the 'No Entry' signs prohibit cycle movements across the road closu ... [more]

Shared path to Rigby Gardens, part of traffic-free route through new housing. Could do with more drop kerbs but paths are useful to avoid Shettleston Road.

The full length of the Pearce Lane cycle track. For some strange reason, the dropped kerb at Water Row does not extend to the full width of the cycle track.

A protected cycle lane along Pearce Lane, between Pearce Street and Water Row.

A fairly new cycle link on Hopehill Road, including some new green space created by shortening the former carriageway on this side of the closure.

Obstructive car and van parking on Striven Gardens.

I thought I could get through on the left at Striven Gardens, but see #108225.

An improvement at last at Doune Quadrant and Doune Gardens. Not perfect, but at least usable on a standard bike.

@theenvtaskforce @TrothBen @aglasgowcyclist @jrothwell @CityWestminster @GlasgowCC @CycleInfraDay @GoBikeGlasgow @AnnaLangside @ChristyMearns @johned @magnatom Still the same https://t.co/gMBW79b7e7

The road does not extend as far as the flats in Lauderdale Gardens, making room for some grass and trees. But no dropped kerbs at either end of the path to assist with cycling through the area.

Filtered permeability in Sydenham Lane.

Cycle parking outside the sports centre in Yoker. It would be better with dropped kerbs to allow cycling through the road closure.

Permeability for pedestrians only. Although there is a sort of ramp up to the kerb on this side, on the other side it is just a high kerb (see #48702).

Bollards at the end of Rhindmuir Road, at the start of the path to Coatbridge Road.

The parallel cycle and zebra crossing has now been finished. Go left to turn right. It's also not clear what is and what is not shared use footway.

What's that rule about not parking within so many metres of a junction? A car parked blocking entrance to the cycle track, so that it becomes easier to go around the other side of the traffic island to get to Lorne Street.

A small path network connects Craighall Street to the adjoining areas but could be tidier.

No access for cycles at road closure between Milnpark Gardens and Milnpark Street. Only pedestrians can go between the two streets. [Since opened up to cycling, see #166733.] A gully installed the wrong way around creating an unnecessary ... [more]
