The shared footway on Aikenhead Road, at the junction with Polmadie Road. There is no off-road cycling option for journeys that do not continue along Aikenhead Road. All the crossings are for pedestrians only.

The path continues over to the mountain biking site.

The Cathkin Braes cycle path ends at the entrance to the country park, but could extend further to connect with the junction of the road to Rogerton.

The Cathkin Braes cycle path crosses a farm access.

A cycle track extends from the end of Gallowhill Road alongside the B759 as far as an entrance to the Cathkin Braes mountain biking.

The footway in the foreground was widened when it was converted to shared use (although the lampposts were left where they were), but beyond the toucan crossing the section to the shared use ramp to Old Polmadie Road has been left at its … [more]

When the Polmadie Bridge is rebuilt, the route to Glasgow Green will be straight ahead, across the split toucan crossing and down the ramp to Old Polmadie Road.

A new addition to my commute for the next 2 months. (#glasgow Aikenhead Road)

@GoBikeGlasgow Today I think is #GlasgowVanInfraDay

Would be a good walking or cycling path. Shared use next to massive #Holyrood school though? #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

On joining the shared-use footway from Aikenhead Road I almost collided with another person on a bike coming the other way at this blind corner. Poor sightlines here. Additionally, the writing on the direction sign is so small that it is … [more]

Shared use pavement, Polmadie #space4cycling now

A Give Way for vehicles exiting yard at cycleway crossing, but minimal visibility. No Give Way for vehicles entering where visibility is better.

Walking three-abreast blocks the full width of the shared cycleway/footway.

Maybe it's not finished, maybe it's a mistake, but there's a gap in the border at the dropped kerb for cycle access to Allison Street and the gap is only a fraction of the length of the dropped kerb. There's no such gap in the marked car … [more]

A change back to unsegregated shared use from line segregation. Painting the Give Way triangle on top of the tactile matting reduces its effectiveness.

Rubber tactiles peeling off shared footway

The wrong sign for a line-segregated route. But there used to be the correct sign for this at this location (see Streetview).

The border and solid line continues straight across the cycle track between Myrtle Park and Aikenhead Road, which in turn has almost faded away.

The shared-use footway along Carmunnock Road, with randomly placed bollards, some obstructive, near the entrance to King's Park.

The exit from King's Park onto Carmunnock Road, where the Cathkin Braes Cycle Route goes onto the footway, but there is no dropped kerb. However, there is a bent direction sign, which doesn't make it clear what cyclists are supposed to do.

Perhaps a bit late to be telling cyclists coming down the hill in King's Park to go slow!

A cycle parking stand next to a park bench in King's Park.

Bollards and lining in inconsistent positions either side of an unmarked speed hump on Myrtle View Road, which is also the crossing point for the Aikenhead Road shared-use footway.

Sign and lamp posts in the shared-use footway outside Aikenhead Road police station.

A wide shared-use footway past the Hampden Park & Ride site, and a total of 3 cars parked in the publicly funded car park.

An unusually clear approach to the Prospecthill Road toucan crossing on this shared-use footway, but this probably has more to do with the Hampden football crowds than cycling.

The shared-use footway on this side of Aikenhead Road ends here, but without anything to tell users such as an End of Route sign, or even toucan crossings to assist in rejoining the carriageway at this fairly hostile road junction. Also, … [more]

Line of shared-use footway obstructed by parked advertisement trailer at abandoned petrol station.

Although there is nothing to say, cyclists following the Cathkin Braes to Glasgow Green cycle route are meant to cross over Aikenhead Road at this toucan crossing. The footway ahead on this side of the road just leads to a dead-end as it … [more]

The start of the shared-use footway on Aikenhead Road is marked by bollards for cyclists travelling in each direction

The cycle route from Cathkin Braes to Glasgow Green transfers from on-road to shared-use footway at this junction, with separate entry and exit points as seen in #58614

Closed road with Fire Path and a cycle gap at each side

Route signage to Gorbals and Glasgow Green

At first glance, I thought these were separate directions for pedestrians and cyclists, but probably they are not.

This road layout was completed from a blank canvas (the whole of the Oatlands housing scheme east of this point was demolished) and yet the road planners still didn't leave enough space for their planned "cycle facility" past one of the few … [more]

A brand new shared-use footway/cycleway at the M74 motorway junction, already in a very poor state of repair!

Misleading tactiles and more posts in the shared-use footway on Polmadie Road, at the M74 motorway junction.

Poles in shared-use footway on Polmadie Road.

Shared-use footway on Polmadie Road, with Give Way markings at entrance.

A van parked partially over the end of the path from the King's Park station underpass. Would the driver park over any other junction mouth like this?

The cycle route goes through the underpass beneath the railway line at King's Park station, which also serves as the entrance to the station. Thus the white lining guides cyclists away from the staircase up to the platform.

End of shared-use footway along Menock Road, and underpass under railway line at King's Park station. The sign gives directions to Cathcart station, which is on the same line as this one.

Shared-use footway along Menock Road.

Mmmm. Anyone see a problem with the new cycle track in Glasgow. #cycling

A nice straight through transition between the road and the new park entrance.

Shared-use footway on Carmunnock Road (see also #48547).

Shared-use footway on Carmunnock Road, and toucan crossing across Dougrie Road (see also #48548).

Entrance to and exit from shared-use footway along Ardencraig Road opposite Ardencraig Crescent junction

There is no longer a dropped kerb at this path entrance, even though there used to be one here!
