@GoBikeGlasgow constant parking in front of the cycle path at bottom of Corrour Road in Newlands. Happening everyday. Double yellow lines and cycle path paint worn away https://t.co/ubCvvYCEfB

Obstructive parking in Craigton Road, next to a partially empty ASDA car park.

A mention of the cycle route and bike parking on the new totem pole outside Partick Interchange, but no mention of the hire bikes.

If it's not for cars then it's alright to park across. Still no surfaced connection to NCN7.

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. A gully installed the wrong way around creating an unnecessary hazard for cycles.

No access for cycles at road closure between Milnpark Street and Milnpark Gardens. Must enter via Paisley Road West along with all the other vehicular traffic.

Milnpark Street - no through route to Cornwall Street, and no vehicular access to Milnpark Gardens either. No attempt to cater for cycling. As for those road markings in the foreground - they worked well!

The start of a path that may or may not lead to the Paisley Road cycle track.

Cycles only beyond this point?

The road closure in Ashley Street has a sort of hump to facilitate cycling, and some parking stands.

The cycle path towards the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital starts at the Meiklewood Road roundabout. It is also a dead end for pedestrians so surely this first section of path should be signed for cycles only.

To get to the Meiklewood Road cycle lanes (see #98922), you need to go around the roundabout.

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.

A new dropped kerb at the Caledonian University entrance, with cycle symbol, for turning from the main carriageway. But the cycle route is on the opposite footway.

A new dropped kerb at Braid Square, for access to the path to the Garscube Road footbridge.

Start of the Moss Road cycleway at Langcroft Road.

A new approach path to the M8 motorway underpass at the end of Craigton Road, arranged to dissuade obstructive parking, although this doesn't always work (see #102730).

A 20mph zone and a cycle route sign in Govanhill Street

"Traffic calmed area" in Govanhill

An interesting bollard, but access to the cycle path from the carriageway of Cotton Street involves either cycling along the footway or bumping the low kerb and going through the dirt.

The cycle track linking Kingarth Street with Victoria Road, right at the bus stop.

There is a cycle track linking Kingarth Street with Victoria Road, but it's right at the bus stop. Hopefully this will be sorted by the South City Way works.

The cycle track between Bowman Street and Victoria Road goes around the bus shelter. Hopefully this will be improved by the South City Way works.

A cycle track with right angled corners links between Nithsdale Road and the Pollokshaws Road toucan crossing, around the bins.

Signage for the Clyde Tunnel at the underpass in Burghead Drive. I'm not sure that's the way I'd walk to any of the destinations shown to the left.

The new zebra and cycle parallel crossing on Govan Road has still not been completed! Note the parking layby is narrower than the vehicle parked in it.

The new zebra and cycle parallel crossing on Govan Road still hasn't been completed. Not even the shared footway surface has been finished!

Slow progress on the parallel cycle/zebra crossing on Govan Road.

A dropped kerb in the diagonal road closure on Reidvale Street and Sword Street. Not signed for cycling, but unlikely to cause a problem. Interestingly, the dropped kerb on the far side appears to be newer than on this side.

Road closure on Whitevale Street, with no exemption for cycles. A useful street for crossing Dennistoun.

Some subsidence on the cycle path at Adelphi Street, not as bad as at #95383.

The South Bank cycle path, which only opened a few months previously, collapsed when the river level changed. A diversion has been arranged through the adjacent car park (see #95382).

Due to the cycle path collapse at Adelphi Street, the cycle route is diverted through the car park.

A diversion sign for NCN756 at the Smartbridge since its route through Richmond Park is currently blocked.

FAO @Darkerside @GoBikeGlasgow @isersmalone New Balvicar St cycle gate. https://t.co/hsgCQah4xm [A site where car parking regularly blocked the cycle track entrance before e.g. #93805.]

Dropped kerbs have been installed at the access to the Village development (rectifying #71113), but that footway next to the stepped cycleway is so narrow!

The Doune Quadrant/Doune Gardens problem is still very much there.

Texting, engine running, not aware of those around her...

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 when you are jealous of the railings the school have and want some to help protect your bike lane. https://t.co/BmLaHleRD1

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 Striven Gardens, west end. Unique filtering. Also unique in that it isn't blocked by a parked car like normal. https://t.co/ZTSmnVoTHF

The cycle track linking Albert Road and Victoria Road has been blocked by a cycle hire station. Hopefully this will be sorted during the South City Way work.

The start of the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway in Ferry Road is completely anonymous.

Replacement for Checkpoint Shelley (see #26285).

A nice uncluttered layout leading from cycle path onto Greenlaw Road, but photo taken while waiting for others in group to mend a puncture caused by broken glass on the path.

Some cycle parking at the Silverburn Shopping Centre. It looks like the bollards have been replaced here with a more robust design.

The north end of Brock Road has the same problem as the Brock Burn path, but is slightly nearer to the zebra crossing at the health centre.

The Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route crosses the zebra crossing across Auldhouse Road, then heads up Holeburn Road.

The zebra crossing on Auldhouse Road has had its Belisha Beacons covered up, so pedestrians have to take their chances on whether drivers will still respect the crossing. No obvious reason why the bollards have 'Cycles Only' signs on the ... [more]

It's the widest zebra crossing I've ever seen, but why are the Belisha Beacons covered up?

A cycle bypass has been built for the junction, but left vulnerable to blockage by car parking. Again, no signage.

Traffic calming road-narrowing outside a school in Tinto Road, with broken bollards.

The Broomhouse cycle lane goes over a flattened build-out, then becomes a painted door-zone cycle lane.

The protected cycle lanes on Hamilton Road still need a good sweep!

Cars being parked on the Kelvin Walkway and West City Way, because someone has removed some of the bollards that mark the limit of the car park.

NCN7 at the Meadow Road underpass, with a dropped kerb for anyone heading up Meadow Road itself.

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.

I don't think the shape of the Tesco cycle parking stands is to allow them to be shoved under a ledge!

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.

Since my last visit here (see #88189) a route confirmation sign for NCN75 has appeared, but no directional signage.

The kerb shown in #65650 has had an asphalt ramp added so what was meant to be a high quality gateway now looks a bit botched! A bollard has been removed and the motorists are taking advantage of the unenforced double yellows.

Glasgow really pushing the boat out on cycling infrastructure I see... https://t.co/xEq1oobYaI

The canal path at Port Dundas Basin.

The width restriction shown in #88851, and also showing the massive over-capacity of Edinburgh Road.

Traffic calming by width restrictions that force motorists to slow right down when leaving Edinburgh Road, and prevent wider vehicles using the local roads as a rat-run.

A terrible layout for the Broomielaw shared-use footway at the Fastlink busway. See also #88469.

Neglected cycle lane in Hawthorn Street.

Another scheme where the designer has failed to take account of how vehicles will be parked, given that there is unlikely to ever be any parking enforcement around here. Putting in wide footways with big stone kerbs is a waste of money in t ... [more]

The Smart Bridge connects NCN75 with NCN756 on the opposite bank of the River Clyde. But the only signage is by means of Sustrans stickers.

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.

A dropped kerb to access the St Andrew's Suspension Bridge from McNeil Street has now been installed.

The alignment of Baltic Street is somewhat obstructed at the crossing of Dunn Street (see nearby photos).

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

Old and new meet at Glasgow's High Street. Collegelands development and Strathclyde University buildings either side of more traditional buildings.

Baltic St provides a low-traffic route right across Dalmarnock, but only some of the transitions between path and road are any good, such as here at Connal St.

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.

"No Entry except buses and taxis" at the former Water Bus terminal, now part of NCN75.

New smooth shared path down Baird's Brae.

The dropped kerb for getting onto the Springburn cycle route from Mollinsburn St is on the right, but one on the left may be more convenient.

Junction crossing newly converted to toucan crossing, including some resurfacing and tactiles, but no dropped kerb for access to Springburn Way! This is meant to be a new cycle route!

Newly installed dropped kerbs for cycling through to Galloway St, although this couple headed for the footway to avoid the reversing car in the turning head.

The deadend section of Viewpoint Road could be connected up to Stobhill Road and Balgrayhill Road better for cycling.

The path between Ashgill Road and Liddesdale Terrace needs dropped kerbs at each end.

The path from Vaila St to Balmore Road, and its connection onto the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath.

The end of Lochburn Road, blocked with railway sleepers, but with a gap for bikes and pedestrians. The guy on a bike, visible in the background, was lost and looking for the canal path (on the embankment to the right).

NCN 7 & 75 tight turn for Bells' Bridge. You are just meant to know where they lead to. And watch out for the bricks!

Cycle track through closed off road between Claremont St and Argyle St.

The cyclepath merges with the footpath, but someone has decided a full Give Way marking is required.

It's cold, so jeans and hoodie for cycling journey. The fixings for the bollard nearest the camera appear to be loose.

Apart from the pointless wiggle, quite good.

A slightly better approach to the monument than in #86781, but that kerb line sticks out into the cyclepath and might catch someone out.

After what has come before, this section is comparatively good.

I can't help thinking that this sharp corner could somehow have been avoided.
