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 on South Street comes to another break, and again there is a desire line worn in the grass. NCN7 is on the opposite shared footway. Meanwhile, a line of car showroom flags marks the course of the demolished former ra ... [more]

South Street, with worn desire line in the grass verge where there is a missing footway, a speed camera that has been out of use for a long time, a traffic counter, and NCN7 on the footway across the road.

The footway on this side of South Street resumes, with the worn desire line continuous from #173806. The NCN7 cycle route on the opposite footway is not good enough to attract these two to use it.

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 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]

A desire line formed by pedestrians walking from Dalintober Street to Carnoustie Street. There is a pedestrian crossing at the traffic signals ahead, but the paving slabs take an indirect route there.

Still no connection between the towpath and Great Western Road on the south side of the dual carriageway. But a clear worn desire line up the embankment. The north side access at #145337 is left on, left off on the eastbound carriageway, ... [more]

The signed path between Hawick Street and Kelso Street is obviously not fit for purpose, but nothing has been done to this path since it was initially installed. No change since #36031.

Vegetation encroaching onto path near Gower Street, and evidence of people going across the grass instead.

A cyclist taking a short-cut away from the official crossing point on NCN 7, across the Riverside Museum approach road, despite having to bump the kerbs. There is a significant desire line evident in the grass.

Evidence of a desire line through the park from Kelvinhaugh Street to Corunna Street, avoiding Argyle Street. From Corunna Street there is a de facto quietway to the city centre via the Skypark path.

I don't know why the path doesn't continue behind the wall. The cobbles are not everyone's cup of tea.

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

Tyre tracks ahead in Househill Park.

Tyre tracks (not mine) in the grass in Househill Park. This park could do with a few more formalised paths.

Now that the cabins are away and the street has returned to normal, it appears that nothing was done to improve cycle permeability. There is an off-centre dropped kerb, but the 'No Entry' signs prohibit cycle movements across the road closu ... [more]

The access to the canal is only from the footway in front of the shops and no account has been taken of the desire line to go straight to and from the carriageway.

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]

There appears to be some demand for a ramp to bypass the steps up to Dalmarnock Road.

Desire line from NCN7 path up to main road.

Desire line to Riverside Museum

The people of Pollok have made their own desire lines clear, and they don't match the official paths.

A clear desire line for a ramp to the Clyde Walkway where there is only steps on this side of Dalmarnock Road.

While the cycle parking provision at the new Village development is welcome, I think we can all see what is going to happen due to the lack of a path directly into the site from the toucan crossing. [Paving has since been provided.]
