The pop-up contraflow cycle lane in Gordon Street, signed with temporary 'No Entry' signs, one of which has an 'except cyclists' plate below it, in place of the more usual 'except cycles'. The usual 'No Motor Vehicles' signs have been cover ... [more]

@MCRCycleSam @RantyHighwayman @CyclingSurgeon @theJeremyVine I guess we should also factor in that you’ll have double deckers coming straight at nearly on the line... 😶 https://t.co/6dNqsRA9eY [See also #139326]

A pop-up contraflow cycle lane has been installed on Argyle Street under Central Station, and other westbound traffic eliminated, in order to provide more space for pedestrians on the opposite footway. Temporary 'No Entry' signs have been p ... [more]

We asked for #SpaceForPeople, but we didn’t ask for skinny lanes, no segregation, and real life experience of the surface of the moon! We can do better! ☹️ https://t.co/dHxTevjhpx [See also #139536]

Another view of the contraflow cycle lane on Argyle Street. The cycle lanes could easily have been painted with a smoother transition in road position. See also #139322.

The contraflow cycle lane on Argyle Street has an abrupt change of direction, following the kerb. See also #139324.

A contraflow cycle lane has been created on Argyle Street, but it is full of broken asphalt and dislodged stonework, and is nowhere near a smooth ride. With on-coming vehicles now in the centre of the carriageway (as in #139536), less oppor ... [more]

The contraflow cycle lane in Blythswood Street has been obstructed by a fallen over fence.

Glasgow’s counterflow bikes lanes, used by motor vehicles more than bicycles. Counterflow bike lanes in areas like this need barriers of some sort so that they stay open and free to allow cyclists safe and priority when moving around. htt ... [more]

More cars parked in the Cardonald Place Road contraflow cycle lane. When I got to the traffic signals, I waited for two pedestrian phases and still the cycle phase did not happen.

Roadworks in Burleigh Street to create a contraflow cycle track and repave the footways.

@helenpidd Howard Street in central Glasgow. A bike lane that goes against the flow of traffic. But it’s just a car park lane and taxi drop off. Yesterday there was more car than bike lane visible... If you ride it you’re forced into th ... [more]

Can “security” vans stop where ever they like? This guy claims he can, while doing so he is blocking access to Gordon St counter-way cycle lane. @GlasgowCC @polscotrpu ?? https://t.co/EcNWYhbFIf

Painted cycle lanes don’t work, especially if the council just keeps turning a blind eye to those who abuse it. I tried to speak to the guy in the car and ask why he thought it was okay for him to park there, no response. @GoBikeGlasgow ... [more]

Look, I know it's shit infrastructure, just a bit of paint, but there's multistorey and surface car parking within a couple of hundred metres. I have to cycle against the flow of motorised traffic because you're a selfish twat. Thanks. ... [more]

I waited 4 sequences of Argyle st/ Jamaica st🚦- this remained red (having dodged a taxi who’d pulled in and parked on the cycle lane). We simply won’t shift people to cycling if even the limited infrastructure doesn’t work @Glasgow ... [more]

How am I supposed safely cycle up this street if cars are parked in the contraflow cycle lane, forcing me into on coming traffic? @GlasgowCC @AnnaLangside https://t.co/jcbx6GVDyv

Temporary northbound closure of the North Hanover Street contraflow bus lane in connection with building works at Queen Street station. The official diversion is via North Frederick Street.

Why people cycling don’t use the provided infrastructure #7639. Approached a taxi driver blocking this same section earlier. Pointed out the solid white. He shrugged. ‘I’m dropping someone off’. Glasgow. https://t.co/j4xUZ4yLuT

Contradicting signs on Nairn Street. Is this street one-way, or is contraflow cycling permitted?

Contraflow cycling on the road to Yorkhill Hospital. Not much room for passing other than vacant car parking spaces, but downhill for an easy restart.

A new contraflow cycle lane on Holm St, still awaiting signage.

Midland St now has a contraflow bus lane from Jamaica St, before becoming two-way by the mid-point.

Preparations have been made on Blythswood St for the contraflow cycle lane, but signage and lining has still to be done. On the near side of the junction dropped kerbs have been installed to allow cycling over the footway, unlike the far si ... [more]

The reality of what happens when someone wants to cycle along this one-way street the wrong way. See the correct way at #87038.

As every person on a bike knows, a piece of coloured surfacing may indicate a cycle facility, and this is the access to the shared use footway to bypass the No Entry, and thus provide a contraflow facility to this section of one-way street. ... [more]

This section of one-way street has a contraflow cycle facility. Can you spot it? Answer at #87038.

The blocks in the gutter have all shifted and now the rest of the road surface in the contraflow cycle lane is starting to deteriorate.

The end of the George V Bridge contraflow cycle track. The options here are turning left or right onto the Clyde Place cycleway, or left onto the Clyde Place carriageway, or perhaps U-turning.

I'm guessing that Jamaica Street will be resurfaced when the contraflow bus lane is abolished (and a new one is created in Midland Street). But in the meantime, some gas covers need attention, as does the dip at the stop line.

Cycle parking in Argyle Street full up, and a taxi driver parking in the contraflow cycle lane.

More cycle parking needed in Argyle Street.

Sums it all up: Driver in car in cycle lane as 4 @CommunitySafetyGlasg officers stand chatting #GlasgowCycleInfraDay http://t.co/My07LMHYWR

Well meant but this cycle contraflow spits you out into oncoming traffic due to parking. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay http://t.co/BloXJqfKar

Incursion by design. Car parking on either side so there’s not enough room for bus and bike. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay http://t.co/4iONnavYo2

Bus gate on North Hanover Street, outside Queen Street Station.

Contraflow cycle lane goes around a small group of marked car parking bays, but road markings were not reinstated when middle of the road was resurfaced.

West Princes St, Glasgow. The council have kindly installed new layouts on West Princes St, making it one way. Here we see the cycle lane that has been generously provided to exempt cyclists from the one way system. The idea is to cycle ... [more]

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]

Lots of cyclists use North Hanover Street (which leads to various cycle routes) and the contraflow bus lane is extra-wide, so why not include a cycle lane up the hill to discourage motor vehicles from hogging the inside at the lights (taxis ... [more]
