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).

Roadworks continue on Ferry Road. The surface on the footway is still incomplete.

The junction where it is proposed to close NCN7 during the COP26 conference and divert users around the streets of Yorkhill, Finnieston and Anderston. The carriageway of the road is accessed via the dropped kerb before the bridge, and the f ... [more]

Shared footway on Smith Street and ramp into car park, and access to NCN7 in the background.

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]

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]

The eastern end of the Herbertson Street cycle track suffers from a severe fly parking problem, with cars and vans parked on the footway as well as over the dropped kerb for exiting the cycle track.

Parked van blocking dropped kerb, and obstructing people cycling. No attempt to discourage parking here. Failure to reinstate cycleway markings after roadworks.

Green strip cycleway missing parts, as well as being poorly implemented and signed, and blocked by scaffolding without any warning or diversion. Dropped kerb blocked by parked van.

The pop-up cycle lane resumes, but only once the road happens to get wider. I bumped the kerb to allow the couple walking towards me to avoid walking single file. A decent permanent installation would not look like this.

The pop-up two-way cycleway, which only just began back at the Provanmill Road junction, ends, and gestures for cyclists to go onto the footway at the motorway bridge.

The end of the pop-up two-way cycle lane on Royston Road. The cycle route continues around the corner to the right.

Start of the pop-up two-way cycle lane on Royston Road.

A Nextbike hire station has been added to Shields Road at the start of the Southwest City Way.

The cycle route leaves the footway and cyclists can start cycling on the carriageway. A dropped kerb has been provided next to the one remaining railing (there used to be two).

A dropped kerb and diagonal path over to the cycle path alongside Bellahouston Park. It's completely unsigned and unmarked, but it can only be for someone cycling on Mosspark Boulevard wanting to leave the carriageway to use the toucan cros ... [more]

The Hinshaw Street cycleway at the Maltbarns Street junction. It is not clear what the priorities at the junction might be, but in practice traffic volumes are generally low.

A cycle hire station in Pollokshields on Maxwell Drive/St Andrew's Drive, and a painted footway cycle lane leading to a toucan crossing to the right.

A dropped kerb, possibly to allow cycling through the road closure in Dalziel Drive at St Andrew's Drive.The dropped kerb on the other side is to the right of the bin.

No provision for cycling (other than the parking stands) and minimal provision for pedestrians at the busy Wallace Street junction with Dalintober Street. A dropped kerb crossing across three lanes of fast moving traffic heading for the mot ... [more]

The transition from the path to Bengal Street is a bit messy, since it is missing a bit of asphalt.

The footbridge connecting the two parts of Beech Avenue across the M8 motorway, and part of the original Glasgow to Paisley cycle route. The footbridge ramps have a single step at each side of the bridge.

Fire Path at Skene Road. There is no dropped kerb on the Paisley Road West side.

The path connecting Cogan Street and Shawbridge Street has been laid out for pedestrian use only, but provides a route to and from the retail park that avoids Nether Auldhouse Road, so would be useful for cycling too. Although there is a ... [more]

Another gate across the road linking the two sides of Robroyston station, and again there's only dropped kerbs on one side of the gate. The next opportunity to leave the footways (which aren't signed as shared use) isn't for a while, either ... [more]

The gate at Robroyston station closes off the full width of the carriageway, and a dropped kerb has been provided on only one side of it to enable cyclists to join the footway and go around it. The nearest dropped kerb on the other side of ... [more]

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 dropped kerb on the path from Elliot Street to the Clydeside Expressway sliproad.

The path from Prospecthill Circus to Polmadie Road is being rebuilt. This end is pretty much complete.

Linthaugh Terrace meets Corkerhill Road, where NCN7 and NCN75 cross over to the footway on the far side of the dual carriageway. If not going via Pollok Park, northbound cyclists should stay on this side where there is a (now protected) cyc ... [more]

A Fire Path with no provision for cycling separating Potterhill Road and Linthaugh Road, and looking along Bonnyholm Avenue with NCN7 and NCN75 in the distance. The council's Active Travel directional signage can be seen on the far side of ... [more]

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]

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 the cycle lanes without pulling out into the outside lane.

Cycle symbols have appeared at the entrance to the pedestrian precinct in Cambridge Street, apparently in contradiction to the 'No Vehicles' signs. Sauchiehall Street is a Core Path (which permits cycling), but Cambridge Street is not.

The cycle track alongside Fountainwell Road ends here, with some Guidance Path tactile paving. It looks suspiciously like it will go no further on this side, and it crosses over to a new path on the other side of what can be quite a busy (a ... [more]

The cycle path along St Rollox Drive now extends onto Fountainwell Road.

Former Fire Path at Allander Street where it meets Ashfield Street. No provision for cycling through, although not much in the way of hindrance either, and the area awaits redevelopment. Through motor traffic here would be undesirable due t ... [more]

Access to the Village retail hub has been closed off, perhaps temporarily.

The path from Seaward Street joins Portman Street and Scotland Street West.

Unmarked dropped kerb connecting the southern portion of Shields Road to Nithsdale Road and the rest of Shields Road. The dropped kerb has clearly been retro fitted, but not marked as being for cycling.

A dropped kerb for cycling from Cavendish Street towards the South City Way, but now it is aligned with a large patch of grass, so requires awkward turns to get around.

The final section of the link between Stockwell Place and Dunlop Street, where it crosses between the westbound and eastbound sections of Howard Street to access Dunlop Street, isn't marked in any way. The kerbs are are not well aligned eit ... [more]

The cycle track linking Stockwell Place to Dunlop Street, providing an alternative route for a banned turn from Stockwell Street into Clyde Street, and a local link between parts of Howard Street and Dunlop Street. The green surface is b ... [more]

Van parking obstructing the dropped kerb for the path connecting Plean Street to the NCN7 cycle path. The bollard is largely superfluous, given the width of the opening.

Dropped kerbs both sides on the underpass at Cowlairs Road, but stepped ramp up to the path alongside the Springburn Expressway.

Uncontrolled crossing of Alderman Road, signed for cycling and walking. View opposite to that in #165306.

Uncontrolled crossing of Alderman Road, signed for cycling and walking. No change from #36030.

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.

The Kelso Street cycle lane directs cyclists to use a narrow path of paving slabs, with hoop barriers at the end. Sightlines on the corner are not great either.

Poor design makes the path from Alderman Road to Kelso Street vulnerable to obstruction by car parking. There is a dropped kerb and faded green patch, but they are insufficient to prevent motorists blocking them. A build-out is required. ... [more]

The dropped kerb on the right (see #46778) is blocked by van parking, and the stopped up section of road is also covered with indiscriminate parking.

The dropped kerbs either side of the road closure on Morven Street don't align. I noticed this too late and came straight off of the high kerb. See #152275.

This looked like a good cycle exemption from a road closure, but the dropped kerbs on each side of the strip don't align. See #152276.

Car parking partly blocking the dropped kerb for the cycle path access at Fore Street, also partly on the school zig-zag markings.

Despite the council providing cycle signage at the canal access path at Campbell Street, the nearest dropped kerb is someone's driveway.

If you know where to look, there are now little asphalt ramps on each of the steps on the Charing Cross footbridge. But they could be widened and highlighted with paint. The dropped kerb is also obstructed by car parking. Combined wit ... [more]

The footbridge at the end of Dolphin Road has fairly steep ramps, but also has quite a bit of upstand on the kerbs on each side.

A connection from Bantaskin Street to Cowal Road, although there is no formal crossing across the latter, and not even a dropped kerb there. Should the awkward bit of the Kelvin Walkway (at #100566) ever be rebuilt, this will be the diversi ... [more]

A dropped kerb has been installed at the end of the Garriochmill Way path, but the retention of the painted car parking bay across it causes it to frequently be blocked by car parking.

A dropped kerb has been installed at the end of the Garriochmill Way path.

With the dropped kerb on the right, the cycle track connecting North Woodside Road to Hopehill Road/Maryhill Road junction is blocked by the hire bike. Weaving around the hire bike thus becomes necessary, when having the dropped kerb in the ... [more]

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.

The start of the shared footway on the east side of Robroyston Road. Just a dropped kerb to allow cyclists to join.

A cycleway around the roundabout in Nova Business Park.

The start of the cycle markings on the footway of Leverndale Road. Unlike the dropped kerbs at the roundabouts, here the white diagonal line encloses the dropped kerb.

Crossing point at Raeswood Road.

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

The Clyde Tunnel cycle track now has a dropped kerb across the end of it at the Cressy St junction.

The kind of dropped kerb that really needs nibbed to protect it from car parking. The kerb across the road is completely blocked. On this side of Holmfauldhead Place a shared-use footway has been created between this dropped kerb and the ... [more]

Ramped access to the underpass under the M8, linking Barfillan Drive and Jura Street to Craigton Road. This is the nearest dropped kerb if coming from Jura Street. Lots of roadspace crying out for some reallocation to enable active travel.

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

In addition to the obstructive railing and poorly positioned dropped kerb, the poorly placed signage has completely faded out.

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 full length of the Pearce Lane cycle track. For some strange reason, the dropped kerb at Water Row does not extend to the full width of the cycle track.

@theenvtaskforce @TrothBen @aglasgowcyclist @jrothwell @CityWestminster @GlasgowCC @CycleInfraDay @GoBikeGlasgow @AnnaLangside @ChristyMearns @johned @magnatom Still the same https://t.co/gMBW79b7e7

A poor quality surface at the start of the Cleddans Burn path, part of the Garscadden Way cycle route and Drumchapel Way walking route. The footway on the Goals access road swaps from the north to the south side at this point.

Line segregation, apparently.

The Cycle Quietway through Knightswood links the Orca cycle routes on Dyke Road and Lincoln Avenue without going along Alderman Road. The entrance to the Lincoln Avenue cycle track is rather cluttered and the cycle track itself can barel ... [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.

What I take to be the final layout at the Archerhill Road bus stop. The final white line (seen in #100294) directing cyclists into the undropped kerb has been blacked out.

The dropped kerb required for cycling along the path in #100561, if it were not blocked by the parked van, is always obstructed by the lamppost. The 'No Through Road' needs an 'except cycles' sign if the path is to be considered to be pa ... [more]

A route sign not pointing the correct way to the Forth & Clyde Canal. And if that's a cycle parking stand, it may be better positioned in front of the shops, not at the rear. On the plus side, a dropped kerb has been installed since #332 ... [more]

The path cyclists are signed along in #100509 does not have a dropped kerb at the end, although there is one is a short distance along the footway near the mini-roundabout.

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

The cycleway suddenly turns from a shared-use footway behind the bus shelter and jumps into an on-road two-way cycle lane.

A closeup of the dropped kerb in #100293. The lining directs westbound cyclists into the undropped section of kerb. I am aware of one person who came off her bike at this location.

Call this a dropped kerb? Cut-through to Shafton Road.

The entrance to the path at Bredisholm Road is being used as a parking space.

A new cycle route on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. A bus stop impasse? It appears the intent is that cyclists using this cycle lane should use the dropped kerb to join the footway and go around the back ... [more]

When I turned into Holmfauld Place from Govan Road I noticed a white line on the footway. On investigation, it turns out the only way onto this shared cycleway is via the dropped kerb next to the black car.

The Summertown Road cycle route leaves the shared footway for the carriageway. Spot the clues.

A blind corner risk on the new Summertown Road shared footway. Note that the position of the dropped kerb discourages cycling away from the wall and towards the kerbline where there is better visibility.

The contraflow cycle lane on Blythswood Street is still incorrectly signed.

A new dropped kerb at the Caledonian University entrance, with cycle symbol, for turning from the main carriageway. But the cycle route is on the opposite footway.

A new dropped kerb at Braid Square, for access to the path to the Garscube Road footbridge.

A clumsy section of cycle route at Preston Place heading towards Govanhill Park, with a dropped kerb that is vulnerable to blockage by car parking.

A cycle track with right angled corners links between Nithsdale Road and the Pollokshaws Road toucan crossing, around the bins.

Signage for the Clyde Tunnel at the underpass in Burghead Drive. I'm not sure that's the way I'd walk to any of the destinations shown to the left.
