Toucan crossing on Beith Street out of use. This road can be quite busy at peak times.

No safe crossing of the A752 at Commonhead Road, on the Seven Lochs Trail, and not even a dropped kerb! Just a promise of a future bridge across the M73 and A752, if it gets funding.

The Seven Lochs Trail crosses the A752 and goes into Drumpellier Country Park. But there's not even a dropped kerb to help with the crossing of this busy A road at Commonhead Road.

A rather disjointed looking cycle connection between Springbank Street and Garscube Road at Queen's Cross, but a connection nonetheless. And cycle parking.

The positions of the dropped kerbs at the Lochend Road crossing is poor, and could easily be rectified. Alternatively, a raised crossing could be installed, which would have the added benefit of slowing drivers coming down the hill into Eas ... [more]

The road crossing at Lochend Road could be better.

Route signs for the Seven Lochs Trail at Avenue End Road. The path connection across the other side is not so great, but the signs point the way into Hogganfield Park.

Route signs for the Seven Lochs Trail at Avenue End Road.

Whoever designed this does not cycle! The cycle lane being used as a car park goes is obstructed by a kerb at the toucan crossing over to Morrison's supermarket and retail park.

The station is straight ahead, but again footway users have to go beyond the roundabout to cross, then head off to the right, to another roundabout.

Footway users have to go beyond the roundabout to cross.

A toucan crossing across a motorway sliproad at Robroyston.

A cover on one of the traffic signals at the Robroyston motorway junction sliproad, even though the toucan crossing is working and uncovered.

A cover over one of the traffic signals at the partly signalised roundabout at the M80 Robroyston junction at Saughs Road.

A toucan crossing at Saughs Avenue. There is no indication whether or not the shared footways continue beyond the crossing up Saughs Avenue.

No dropped kerb to get directly from the retail park to the Saughs Avenue toucan crossing.

A toucan crossing across Saughs Avenue.

The end of the shared footway on Saughs Avenue. But since there is a shared footway across the toucan crossing, there is really no need for the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign. However, the shared footway is far too narrow.

A shared footway and toucan crossing on Saughs Road. The shared footway on this side continues as far as the dead-end turning for a future development, and the footway on the other side of the road becomes shared-use at the crossing.

The staggered toucan crossings across Berryknowes Road do not even line up with the path from the flats.

Toucan crossings at the junction between Berryknowes Road and Kingsland Drive, although there are no cycle routes or shared footways leading up to them.

Footway cycleways routinely used for car parking at Leverndale Hospital.

Crossing point at Raeswood Road.

Unsurprisingly, people want to go to the crossing. More tyre tracks in Househill Park.

A minimalist crossing put in for the Cardonald Quietway. Basically a patch of asphalt on the central reservation. Slightly diagonal too.

No dropped kerb at the south side of the toucan crossing seen in #112196, for access to the crossing from a network of low-traffic back-streets.

A dropped kerb has indeed been installed (see #98305), providing access to the toucan crossing.

NCN756 road crossing at the north end of Piccadilly Street.

Raised crossing where NCN756 and Piccadilly Street meet.

The new cycleway alongside St Rollox Drive, the new road along the northern edge of the Sighthill redevelopment.

A new toucan crossing at the junction of Keppochhill Road, Carlisle Street and St Rollox Drive, the new road across the northern edge of the Sighthill redevelopment.

A poor end to the footway from The Antonine Road at the Goals access road, part of the Drumchapel Way signed walking route.

The Drumchapel Way meets The Antonine Road. Glasgow City Council's GIS system shows a path (called Drumry Wood) across the site across the road, even though it is securely fenced off.

Kinfauns Drive outside the Drumchapel Shopping Centre and Health Centre. Bike parking both sides but access restricted by extensive use of guard railings. The Drumchapel Way crosses the road here and the signs can just be seen.

Glasgow's joined up infra as it transitions from segregated to 'shared with pedestrians'. A pole and a parked van. Nice. https://t.co/I1zYIvWeLB

According to Network Rail, the railway bridge on Muirhead Road has been "rebuilt stronger and wider to enable two-way traffic, cycle route and pedestrian footpath". I don't see a cycle route. https://www.networkrailmediacentre.co.uk/news ... [more]

A shared footway in quiet Glendore Street, and I think the raised crossing in Medwyn Street in the foreground could be better aligned with the footway.

This appears to be the end of the Dyke Road cycleway and the cycle route to the new BMX centre in Knightswood Park. I'm surprised the footway hasn't been widened behind the toucan crossing traffic signals to allow more room for turning.

The Dyke Road cycleway ends at a new toucan crossing which provides a connection to Speirshall Close. There were new 'Recommended Route for Cyclists' signs in Speirshall Close, but I couldn't work out where they were leading. NCN7 can be ... [more]

The traffic signals on Alderman Road have acquired a cycle advance green of about 6 seconds before the full green in one direction, plus a toucan crossing on this side for those cycling down the footway of Lincoln Avenue.

The new cycleway on Lincoln Avenue, with a staggered uncontrolled pedestrian crossing.

The cycle parking at the Kelvin Hall (see #95296) has been removed without replacement, meaning bikes are getting locked to railings here and around the corner.

The utilities work on Old Dumbarton Road fail to take any account of the cycle route which crosses from one footway to the other at this point.

A pedestrian crossing across Great Western Road that could be upgraded to accommodate cycling between Kearn Avenue and Keal Avenue.

A pedestrian crossing across Great Western Road that could be upgraded to accommodate cycling between Keal Avenue and Kearn Avenue.

This just doesn't look good at all.

I was expecting something a little more physical for separation than just paint, but maybe it's not finished yet. UPDATE: Orcas have since been installed.

A new cycle route under construction on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The entrance to the new BMX Centre, showing something close to a continuous footway across the entrance roadway.

A new cycle route under construction on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. I think the cycleway is to be segregated from the road using orcas or similar.

A new cycle route under construction on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. A staggered pedestrian crossing across the road (signalled) and cycleway (probably zebra). I think the cycleway is to be segregated w ... [more]

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The route crosses sides here at this new toucan crossing. Maybe they'll put in some cycle parking for the shops before they are finished. Quite a sho ... [more]

The Partick Bus Station rebuilding project continues. It looks as if the bus station roadway is being fenced and the crossing in the foreground of this photo will be the first point that cyclists coming past Partick station entrance can acc ... [more]

Roadworks affecting the signed link between NCN 7 and Partick station, but not clear if the route is open or closed, no diversion, obstructions on the toucan crossing. A poor show all round!

Behind me is a shared-use footway sign. Across the junction and to the right is an "End of Cycle Route" sign. Are they related? Is this shared-use footway nothing to do with the one a little distance along Govan Road at #99434? But still th ... [more]

The footway across the far side of the junction is shared use, but the crossing is for pedestrians only. But the previous shared-use sign was back at #99434. Is this one continuous route or two unrelated shared-use footways? The drainage ... [more]

The Govan Road shared-use footway crosses sides here, although there is only the presence of a toucan crossing as a clue. As always, the asphalt does not provide a direct route to the crossing, and as the wear on the grass shows people are ... [more]

The Govan Road toucan crossing leads straight into a wonky lamppost on Pacific Drive. The footways straights ahead and to the right are both shared use.

The shared-use footway on Govan Road crosses sides at the split toucan crossing at the Pacific Drive junction.

People are already (unofficially) using the southbound cycleway, before merging back into the roadway. #SouthCityWay https://t.co/K9QjAyXTDz

Now that NCN7 has been moved onto the footway at Harvie Street there is a new blind corner problem. Also, why is there a priority crossing at Govan Road and no priority for crossing Brand Street?

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.

Although there are items of cycling paraphernalia back at Carnoustie Street and at Houston Street, this crossing is not a toucan crossing on the path in between the two locations. The space on the central reservation is somewhat restrict ... [more]

The start of the toucan crossing chain from the former Harry Ramsden's restaurant to the Paisley Road cycle track.

Toucan crossings over Paisley Road and the sliproad from Carnoustie Street, under the Kingston Bridge.

Toucan crossings across to the Paisley Road cycle track. Some of the green phases overlap.

This traffic island needs a gap to allow signalled cycle access between the Tradeston Bridge and York Street. It could also be used for right turns from Broomielaw (for those coming from Blythswood St and James Watt St) towards the Tradesto ... [more]

Vehicle parking on the footway appears to be a problem here. The shared use footway crosses to the other side of Summertown Road here, not that you'd notice.

Could the route alignment be any worse? How about a cycle crossing straight across to the new path (see #93791) at the Village development rather than the split toucan?

If you're expecting signs for NCN 7 or 75, they are visible on the right.

I guess the best way onto the Pacific Drive shared use footway is via the toucan crossing on the left. They don't appear to think anyone would approach from this direction.

The ramp up to New Rutherglen Road is signed as shared use, but doesn't connect well with the toucan crossing and the shared footway along Polmadie Road (see also #99165).

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 or ... [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 zebra crossing across Meiklewood Road, but hardly tied into the local road network on the other side. How many people climb up the grass bank rather than follow the path I wonder.

A sign giving directions along the path on the other side of the roundabout, but no actual crossing of Shieldhall Road at the roundabout.

There are no route signs visible at the Colleges Cycle Route turn from St Mungo Avenue towards North Hanover Street.

Filtered permeability not so good as #98670 when it comes to bus stop access, only leading to the nearest street, and lacking a dropped kerb on one side of the street!

Good filtered permeability in parts of the new Richmond Gate housing development, but wouldn't it have been better to provide a raised crossing (as at nearby #95369) for this path between the park and the houses?

The path leads to the crossing across Cathcart Road and the cycle route continues across the far side of the crossing in Preston Street.

A kerb on the approach to the pedestrian crossing across Cathcart Road. The cycle route continues across the other side of the road.

The Torrisdale Street contraflow cycle track, looking towards the Pollokshaws Road toucan crossing.

A dropped kerb is to be added for access to the toucan crossing. Surely something that should have been done when this layout was originally built.

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!

A toucan crossing across the Springburn Road sliproads.

No dropped kerb to access toucan crossing across Fountainwell Road from adjacent road-end, and some subsidence in the footway.

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

The newly built section of the Waterloo St cycle track has been surfaced with little stone blocks, and features this sharp deviation around a new layby. In the background is the toucan crossing across to the Anderston Bridge.

I was surprised to find that the path from London Avenue does not connect across Springfield Road to the path past the velodrome on the same alignment. A crossing is needed here.

The path between Ballater Street and Waterside Street has been closed off due to its collapse. Divert to Waterside Street via McNeil Street, or to Rutherglen via NCN75 on the other side of the river (NCN756 through Richmond Park is also ... [more]

A raised crossing leading into Richmond Park.

The far end of Oatlands Square features a raised crossing, much neater than at the entrance.

Just a small sign away from the main line of sight to warn of the cycle track crossing the access road to the Bunhouse Car Park, and no indication of priority.

The plans show a parallel cycle/zebra crossing to go in here.

The crossing of Bunhouse Road is a mess, and is currently partially blocked by hoarding. In the background a van driver has blocked the cycleway with his van, right next to some car parking spaces on the road, and near a large car park j ... [more]

Pollok's road network is not cycle friendly. Will the Peat Road roundabout replacement plans be modified to rectify this?

The point on Old Dumbarton Road where the cycleway crosses to the opposite footway.

Roadworks on the shared-use footway on Moss Road.

A split toucan crossing across the western hospital entrance on Govan Road, but no obvious signs allowing cycling on the footway, and the eastern entrance a short distance away has ordinary pedestrian-only signals.

If cycling isn't allowed on the footway on this side of Shieldhall Road, then why the toucan crossing?
