A missing armadillo, with bolts remaining in the road surface.

Cycling By Design shows that the correct line to use for breaks in a mandatory cycle lanes passing junctions is a warning line (diagram 1004), not a short broken line.

The road closure on Denmark Street does not permit through cycling, even though Hawthorn Street now has protected cycle lanes. Access for pedestrians only.

Car parking still taking place in the Provanmill Road cycle lane, despite the armadillos. Double yellow lines have not been provided, making it difficult for the council's enforcement officers to do anything.

Debris lying in the Provanmill Road cycle lane.

The partly protected cycle lane in Provanmill Road is slightly wider than the advisory cycle lane it replaced. The pedestrian crossing is not working.

Door-zone cycle lanes on Maxwell Drive.

Door-zone cycle lanes on Maxwell Drive.

A rather poor combination of cycle lane, bus stop and parking layby on Hawthorn Street. See also #171175.

Cycling in the cycle lane on Gorbals Street. The taxi driver driving behind the bus then barged through this group of four cyclists to park in the layby. The permanent cycle provision for this road can't come soon enough!

The contraflow cycle lane in Howard Street is blocked by roadworks, and this sign is at the end cyclists won't be approaching from while using it. See also #170198.

Roadworks closing the contraflow cycle lane in Howard Street. See also #170198.

The speed humps are freshly painted, but the cycle lane is looking rather faded.

A short cycle lane approaching traffic signals on St Andrew's Drive.

A pop-up painted cycle lane has appeared on George V Bridge, wider than the narrow stepped lane to its left, but still inside of a left turn motor vehicle lane, so probably best to continue moving out if not turning left.

@GlasgowCC @YPLAC Howard Street cycle lane, and guess which road user was bawling abuse at me, for just being there apparently... https://t.co/NtJaA4WEXi

The temporary pop-up cycle lane in Dumbreck Road.

The upgraded M77 motorway sliproad crossing at Dumbreck Road. However, the footway beyond is still quite narrow, and the pop-up cycle lane seeks to address this.

Installation work on a protected cycle lane in Royston Road. Alterations appear to have been made.

The protected cycle lane in Royston Road appears to direct cyclists into the kerb without warning. Further along it became apparent that installation work was still on-going.

A filter lane removed and replaced by a protected cycle lane, on Provanmill Road at Royston Road.

The end of the protected section of cycle lane on Cumbernauld Road, where the Cumbernauld to Glasgow cycle route turns right onto Provanmill Road. The sign is of a non-standard pattern. The carriageway goes from one to three lanes for mo ... [more]

The Cumbernauld Road cycle lane, now protected with armadillos.

The start of the protected section of cycle lane on Cumbernauld Road. However, the motorists have decided to park in the bus layby instead.

The protected cycle lane scheme took no account of the bus terminus, so buses wait time in the cycle lane before turning at the roundabout to pick up their next service.

The 'End of Route' sign is still up, even though the Wallacewell Road cycle lanes were extended to the end of the road some time ago. The cycle lanes recommence right after the roundabout.

Parking problems outside the shops.

Unlike other armadillo-protected cycle lanes around the city, there are no double yellow lines on Wallacewell Road, and fly parking is still a problem, particularly at gaps in the armadillo provision.

A strange gap in the lining and armadillo provision on Wallacewell Road.

The cycle lanes on Wallacewell Road are now equipped with armadillos right along the length of the road. The traffic islands appear to be marked up for adjustments to make the cycle lane wider past the islands.

The connection to Surrey Street from the South City Way cycle track on Pollokshaws Road is no longer marked (as it was previously, see #37220), but is implied with a dropped kerb available (although part of a pedestrian crossing) and ends a ... [more]

A pop-up protected cycle lane being finished off on Braidcraft Road, on what is a very high capacity road for such a low car ownership area.

The end of the Brockburn Road pop-up cycle lane, approaching the Linthaugh Road junction.

A bus boarder under construction on the Brockburn Road pop-up cycle lane project.

The Brockburn Road pop-up cycle lane. The ramps at the start of the bus boarders cause quite a jolt and could have been made a bit smoother. Again, Guidance Path tactile paving has been used. Contrary to the fuss being made in the press ... [more]

Start of the Brockburn Road pop-up cycle lane.

The build-outs at the north end of the Corkerhill Road cycle lanes have now been rebuilt with dropped kerbs at each end, allowing access to and from the cycle lanes without pulling out into the outside lane (an improvement over #93383). ... [more]

Lots of cars parked in the cycle lanes and footway on University Avenue, including across the junction with Kelvin Way.

Is it a mandatory cycle lane? If so, why is it marked as a straight on and left turn lane? The protection has ended. NCN75 is on the shared footway alongside.

The "protection" on this protected cycle lane is pretty minimal. Compare with #117893. Still some people using it in the opposite direction though, showing there's demand for a protected two-way facility.

This is meant to be a protected cycle lane, but there is no protection on this section, just paint!

There's not much left of the protected cycle lane on Broomielaw, under Central Station bridge.

@GlasgowCC Is this still a bike lane? Faded paint, totally unenforced, drivers treating it with contempt. St Andrew's Road. @GoBikeGlasgow https://t.co/1K0CTIfjrS

Calder Street tie-in to the South City Way on Victoria Road. See also #167148. The parking bay is at least wider than the van for a change.

The Howard Street contraflow cycle lane with orca protection. The traffic island here has been made less obstructive too.

The Howard Street contraflow cycle lane now has protection from orcas. So taxi driver parks on footway at a pedestrian crossing point instead.

Pop-up cycle lane on Great Western Road, at bus stop near Balvie Avenue. The tactiles are of the lesser-spotted Guidance Path type, in a rubber stuck-down form. I think the pipe might be the drainage.

Pop-up cycle lane on Hawthorn Street. Hatching has been removed from the centre of the road to make room for the cycle lanes.

Pop-up cycle lane on Hawthorn Street. This bus stop appears to have been forgotten for the bus boarder treatment. Hatching has been removed from the centre of the road to make room for the cycle lanes, which much improve safety for as lo ... [more]
