Most folk may cross without making use of the toucan crossing in Kelvin Way, but that's no reason to block the crossing with planters. This raises accessibility issues.

A car-sized gap between the water-filled barriers and the sign-post. The barriers are no replacement for the four bollards that used to be here before COP26.

No path connection between the road crossing and the entrance to Hogganfield Park. Have to bump kerb and cross grass. This is a signed walking and cycling route, the Seven Lochs Trail.

Plenty of car parking spaces, but cycle parking hidden away on side streets. The rubber tactile matting is in a state of decay.

The Bunhouse Road cycle traffic signals are finally operational, about a year after installation. On this occasion the signal was triggered by someone cycling on the footway opposite. See also #183675.

The Bunhouse Road cycle traffic signals are finally operational, about a year after installation. However, some cyclists are continuing to use the pedestrian crossings, including this one who never pressed the button and had to wait a coupl ... [more]

The double yellow lines continue across the advisory pedestrian crossings and into the Restricted Parking Zone where double yellow lines are not meant to go. There are no markings or signs to say that the parking extending into the distance ... [more]

The footway and crossings between Garscube Road and Cowcaddens, across and along Phoenix Road, have been shut as part of the M8 motorway viaduct repair work.

Commercial drivers have realised that there are no consequences from failing to comply with laws.

Cycle parking in Gibson Street, on the Colleges Cycle Route. The road lacks any cycle facilities, other than parkings stands. The delivery van is parked on the zig-zags of a pedestrian crossing. The sign to the right of the picture is lo ... [more]

Another view of the 'Give Way' line in #182981. Note the pedestrian using the diagonal cycle crossing.

A detector has now been installed at the Maryhill Road crossing on North Woodside Road.

While the two crossings on Maryhill Road are pedestrian crossings, the crossing on the Hopehill Road side of the junction is a toucan crossing.

'Give Way' lines leading from the footway onto the roadway of Maryhill Road.

New detector strips have been installed at the North Woodside Road cycle traffic signals at the Maryhill Road crossing. UPDATE 16/6/2022: Arriving by bike, the detector did not cause the button to light up, so I had to press the button i ... [more]

Detectors have been installed in the Argyle Street footway at the crossing to Bunhouse Road, not just on the side that cyclists will be approaching from, but also on this side which is not part of any cycleway. The signals remain bagged, ha ... [more]

A detector has been installed in the Bunhouse Road cycleway, but is so close to the traffic signal users will have almost stopped before being detected.

The North Woodside Road scheme included shortening the length of the road available for driving by extending the cycleway. A zebra crossing has been provided for pedestrians accessing the steps to the supermarket.

The Maryhill Road crossing on North Woodside Road has now been completed. Corduroy tactile paving has again been used erroneously in place of the wider gap Cycleway type. Left and right turns have been banned with the Ahead Only sign.

The finished replacement crossing on North Woodside Road at Maryhill Road. Note the Ahead Only sign on the traffic signal.

Although Glasgow City Council has declared that closing Kelvin Way to motor vehicles is to be permanent, none of the motoring infrastructure has been removed. The railings, kerbs, bollards, parking meters, and this toucan crossing all remai ... [more]

'Cycles only' on University Avenue, apparently.

Cycle parking on Argyle Street, plus some random driver failing to yield to pedestrians crossing the road.

The Bunhouse Road cycleway signals at Argyle Street remain under wraps.

A zebra crossing on the Bunhouse Road cycleway. This one has tactile paving for pedestrians on one side only.

The incorrect tactile paving (corduroy in place of cycleway) is still in place on Old Dumbarton Road.

The Puffin crossing shows no signs of being converted to Toucan, or any other way of providing access to the still unfinished cycle route across the junction.

The bollards (see #172619) that were removed for the COP26 conference dinner at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery still have not been replaced, and taxi drivers are using the pedestrian crossing as a shortcut to exit the car park.

With the local elections approaching, I'd have thought that there would be a little more urgency to get the cycle routes that have been built already properly up and running, but no, the Argyle Street crossing has been rebagged. (See also # ... [more]

An off-side cycle lane on Hopehill Road. I'm not sure what this is for.

Construction of the rebuilt modal filter at North Woodside Road is nearly complete. The road and pedestrian traffic signals have been brought into use, but the cycle signals are still bagged up.

Erased markings at the junction of the Old Dumbarton Road, Benalder Street and Ferry Road cycleways. The plans used in the consultation period showed a mini-roundabout!

The Benalder Street cycleway crosses Old Dumbarton Road without priority.

Unlike the approach taking at the previous junction, the crossings of the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway at the Ferry Road junction do not involve tactile paving on the cycleway and instead only have crossing tactiles at the pedestrian sides. ... [more]

The Old Dumbarton Road cycleway still has incorrect corduroy (Hazard) tactile paving, and for some manoeuvers from Bunhouse Road, it is so close to the junction that cyclists will still be turning when crossing it. Leaf and other autumn ... [more]

The Bunhouse Road cycleway crosses Old Dumbarton Road without priority, and illegal parking restricts visibility.

The Bunhouse Road cycleway priority crossing as seen from the car park. Restricted visibility, tiny Give Way markings and an offside information sign.

Priority has returned to the Bunhouse Road cycleway at the car park entrance, but has been indicated by a random use of miniature Give Way markings as the only indication of this.

Zebra crossings across both the carriageway and cycleway on Bunhouse Road. It is unclear whether pedestrians are allowed or barred from the former shared use footway.

Zebra crossings across both the carriageway and cycleway in Bunhouse Road.

Although now completely unbagged, the cycle traffic signal at Bunhouse Road doesn't seem to ever change to green.

Although now completely unbagged, the cycle traffic signals at the end of Argyle Street don't seem to ever change to green. The approach is still a mess.

The obstructive toucan crossing with kerbs and railings on one side still remains unmodified, and none of the other problems previously noted on the Bilsland Drive cycle lanes have been resolved either.

The new cycle track connecting the Tradeston Bridge to West Street. The route to the right is only for going to Paisley Road now, since the diagonal crossing at the Kingston Street junction has been removed and mandatory turn signs point to ... [more]

The replacement Clyde Place cycleway is finally open. Here it meets the South West City Way.

The replacement Clyde Place cycleway is finally open.

The replacement Clyde Place cycleway is finally open.

The route sign says "Primary School" but the dropped kerb at the junction is of poor quality, with no obvious dropped kerb on the other side of the road closure in Dowanhill Street. The Colleges Route cycle lane has been made narrower an ... [more]

The route sign at Kelvingrove Art Gallery has been reinstated after COP26. Interestingly, the walking and cycling directions to some destinations are different. The Kelvin Hall is referred to as Kelvinhall. The shortest route to the univers ... [more]

The Benalder Street/Argyle Street crossing still awaits commissioning, and signage for former car parking spaces awaits removal. New works have started on the Snow Bridge across the junction, making access trickier.

A randomly pointing cycle route sign, no road markings, and a car parked on a marked tactile crossing.

No further progress on reinstating the road markings at the newly rebuilt Old Dumbarton Road/Ferry Road/Benalder Street junction. All of the pedestrians visible are walking on the cycle track and not the narrow footway.

The cycle traffic signals for the Bunhouse Road/Argyle Street crossing still await commissioning.

The sign seen in #95295 to warn (or inform since it wasn't a warning sign) of the cycle track crossing has gone missing. Also, the tactile paving for the pedestrian crossing has several tyre tracks across it.

The cycle signals at the Argyle Street crossing have been partly uncovered. The tactile paving on this side of the pedestrian crossing has been removed, as have the bollards.

Not much evidence of there being a COP26 diversion route around this corner.

Back to business as usual with the traffic racing round the Benalder Street/Old Dumbarton Road junction.

I'm still not sure what purpose this isolated section of cycletrack is for.

The pedestrian crossings at Anderston Cross have been surrounded by hoardings, making sightlines rather poor.

The pedestrian crossings at Anderston Cross have been surrounded by hoardings, making sightlines poor. However, the lack of traffic coming from the Clydeside Expressway has made it easier to cross on red as there are more gaps in the traffi ... [more]

The crossing at the junction of Bunhouse Road and Argyle Street is still not in use.

Painted bollards at Anderston Cross.

Unusably bad soft segregation has been put in on Argyle Street for the COP26 diversion route, and is dangerous for various reasons, including lorry parking right up to the pedestrian crossing point blocking sight lines. See also #175137.

The narrow path to Inchfad Drive does not have a dropped kerb at the Kendoon Avenue end, even though it should be a recognised crossing point from another path directly across the road.

Several planters on Kelvin Way have been pushed aside, some of them are obstructing the cycleway. Fly parking is occurring without enforcement.

Waiting on red.

The Old Dumbarton Road cycle track is far from complete, and the raised crossings further along still haven't been started. This is on the COP26 diversion route.

The traffic signals poles have been damaged.

The toucan crossing midway along North Canal Bank Street has been installed, but the tactile paving is still the incorrect corduroy (hazard) rather than the cycleway type. The top surface for both the cycleway and carriageway remains to be ... [more]

A parking bay painted across a dropped kerb, and duly parked in, obstructing pedestrian access across the road. Not the first time I've seen a parking or loading bay across a dropped kerb (see also #48651).

Still no raised crossing or dropped kerb to join the Benalder Street cycle track, which otherwise appears nearly complete, apart from the lamppost. UPDATE: These issues have now been resolved, see #175144.

a cyclist leant their bike here. Only explanation https://t.co/vmLh9GKEKP

The toucan crossing across Castlebank Street at the Glasgow Harbour development is missing its red man and green cycle lights. The road surface is also badly worn.

Looking towards #173895, this is where the Loch Lomond Railway Path used to start. Now the gap in the underpass wall has been filled in and the former railway embankment demolished, so NCN7 crosses Castlebank Street using this toucan crossi ... [more]

The footway on the north side of Castlebank Street resumes, but is fenced off just west of the toucan crossing (as seen in #173896). That doesn't stop people using it, and a worn desire line is visible in the grass verge too. NCN7 crosse ... [more]

The northern footway of Castlebank Street doesn't last long, and like South Street, has large gaps in it. A traffic island is the only aid for crossing. NCN7 shares the footway on the right with pedestrians. The site on the left is being ... [more]

The Sawmill Road junction used to have the cycle path on a former railway bridge over the top of the road, but now that has been demolished, the cycle route is on the South Street shared footway to the right. The footway on this side res ... [more]

The toucan crossing is used to follow the cycle route which continues on the footway of the other side of South Street, but there is a clear desire line for staying on this side. There is a short break before the footway resumes at Ferryden ... [more]

The building of the Old Dumbarton Road cycle track continues at the Benalder Street/Ferry Road junction, and shows no sign of being complete in time for the COP26 diversion route coming this way. There is a high kerb at the end of the cycle ... [more]

The diagonal cycle crossing from Bunhouse Road to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery still awaits commissioning.

The shared footway in Bunhouse Road has been covered in beige surfacing, except for a gap just beyond the crossing. The main pedestrian egress from the car park comes up the ramp on the left.

Just a small partly hidden rectangular sign on the off-side to warn drivers of the cycle track crossing at the exit from the Bunhouse Road Car Park.

Still finishing work to be done on the rebuilt Bunhouse Road shared footway, and still no indication of priorities at the car park entrance.

Still finishing work to be done on Old Dumbarton Road, and not looking likely to be finished in time for the COP26 diversion route coming this way. UPDATE: The raised crossing has now been installed. See #175266.

The paving may be fancy, but the toucan crossing is decidedly substandard.

The staggered toucan crossing on Castlebank Street at the end of the fancy bridge from Beith Street has a rather narrow central island, made worse by the railing have taken a bit of a battering.

The council has fenced off the former cycle off-slip from the Clyde Arc bridge at the NCN75 toucan crossing. This helped those making right turns by allowing cyclists to leave the carriageway and make the turn with the assistance of the cro ... [more]

The area underneath the M8 motorway at Anderston Cross is being painted a couple of months before the COP26 conference hits town. The Anderston Bridge, Stobcross Bridge, and various roads are proposed to be closed during the conference, and ... [more]

If a gap wasn't possible opposite James Watt Street (see #173269), a cycle slip lane onto the central reservation island would be useful to enable a right turn onto the toucan crossing across the opposite carriageway to be made, and then he ... [more]

The lack of a connection from James Watt Street to the riverside NCN75 path and the Tradeston Bridge (visible background left) continues to make this a difficult place to cycle. A gap through the kerb and railing on the far side of the junc ... [more]

The Sauchiehall Street cycleway is still closed for a short distance near Dalhousie Street. See also #172679.

There is no easy way to get to the start of the Sauchiehall Street cycleway at Charing Cross. From this painted lane a left turn into the motorway sliproad is required to get to the dropped kerb at the toucan crossing. There is nothing to m ... [more]

I noticed this dropped kerb at the Advance Stop Line box and investigated whether it was installed to aid cycling from St George's Road to the toucan crossing chain through the junction, but no, it was left over from a pedestrian crossing t ... [more]

Council destination sign all arms pointing the wrong way, and narrow green strip cycleway poorly implemented and signed.

A widened and protected cycle lane, compared to what was there previously, although still gaps in the protection at the pedestrian crossing.

Sighthill regeneration continues. From the width of this path, and the toucan crossings at the junction, it appears it may be a shared-use path in place of the Glasgow to Cumbernauld cycle route path that used to be here.

Another view of #172734, showing the narrow footway between the toucan crossing and the boundary fence.

The ramp seen in #172741 leads users over a kerb when joining the Garscube Road cycleway.

Not a promising look for the Sighthill "cycling village". A toucan crossing with not even a bike's length between the kerb and the fence at the back of the footway. See also #172813.

The crossings at the Old Dumbarton Road/Benalder Street junction still await raised carriageways, so these two had to bump the kerb in order to join the cycleway. UPDATE: This issue has now been resolved, see #175144.
