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.

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.

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 northern footway of Govan Road, between Harvie Street and Pacific Drive, has been rebuilt as shared use, including a marked buffer zone between it and the carriageway. However, the dropped kerb for anyone exiting Festival Park now has a ... [more]

A simple encapsulation of the contempt for people who walk or cycle; snow from roadway piled up at dropped kerb on shared use route. #DontBlockTheDrop https://t.co/Dfdk38HHNJ

A dropped kerb in the diagonal road closure on Reidvale Street and Sword Street. Not signed for cycling, but unlikely to cause a problem. Interestingly, the dropped kerb on the far side appears to be newer than on this side.

Dropped kerbs have been installed at the access to the Village development (rectifying #71113), but that footway next to the stepped cycleway is so narrow!

Not sure I can do this justice in photos. Alignment with dropped kerb is... bad. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 Gorbals Street https://t.co/5Z69lUGAoE

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]

The start of the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway in Ferry Road is completely anonymous.

The Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route uses an old pelican crossing to cross Thornliebank Road, and even from this slightly elevated position, the ramp down to Harriet Place isn't visible, so proper signage is essential. Th ... [more]

It's the widest zebra crossing I've ever seen, but why are the Belisha Beacons covered up?

A cycle bypass has been built for the junction, but left vulnerable to blockage by car parking. Again, no signage.

No sign to say the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route turns right here.

A car blocking the dropped kerb at the top of the ramp from Hillpark Drive. The path itself is not particularly smooth.

A car parked over a dropped kerb that forms part of the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route.

NCN7 at the Meadow Road underpass, with a dropped kerb for anyone heading up Meadow Road itself.

Railing and kerb present obstacles to anyone wanting to cycle to residential Barrowfield Street, although the far end of the turning head does have a dropped kerb.

Since my last visit, two dropped kerbs have been installed, but one of them is completely blocked by a parked car.

The position of the dropped kerb seems to be without any thought as to where people might want to cross.

A dropped kerb to access the St Andrew's Suspension Bridge from McNeil Street has now been installed.

Cars parked blocking a dropped kerb, leaving only just enough room for a standard bike to squeeze through.

Van driver parked blocking dropped kerb seen in #86106.

Preparations have been made on Blythswood St for the contraflow cycle lane, but signage and lining has still to be done. On the near side of the junction dropped kerbs have been installed to allow cycling over the footway, unlike the far si ... [more]

The dropped kerb for getting onto the Springburn cycle route from Mollinsburn St is on the right, but one on the left may be more convenient.

No dropped kerb specifically for accessing the new Springburn cycle route from Adamswell St, but the entrance on the left has a convenient enough one to use instead.

A dropped kerb and a short section of shared-use footway, leading to a toucan crossing across Great Western Road, for those not keen on making the right turn on the road.

As every person on a bike knows, a piece of coloured surfacing may indicate a cycle facility, and this is the access to the shared use footway to bypass the No Entry, and thus provide a contraflow facility to this section of one-way street. ... [more]

Access to the path in front of the Sheriff Court is via a dropped kerb protected by double yellow lines.

New build out and dropped kerb on Claythorn Street #glasgowcycling https://t.co/qwbkEQV2py

Now that this dropped kerb forms part of a cycle route, it might be time to trim back the lower branches on these trees.

A newly opened up road closure next to Hampden Stadium.

Working on better cycling access to the M8 underpass at Craigton Rd/Jura St #glasgowcycling https://t.co/iIvigzzCZd

A dropped kerb has been provided at the end of Carlton Place.

Incorrect tactiles used on Shields Road at the point where the cycle track ends onto a shared-use footway at the junction with St Andrew's Road, and some upstand on part of the dropped kerb.

Newly installed dropped kerb at Langside Road creating quieter alternative to Victoria Road #quietway #glasgowcycling http://t.co/qvfQphWvZa

Morris Path has been resurfaced, but the dropped kerbs are far from flush and have a significant upstand. The location may better suit a raised crossing in any case.

A car and a van parked on double yellow lines, the shared-use footway, and blocking the dropped kerb where cyclists are expected to join the roadway. But there isn't any enforcement around here.

As #59263, new cycle signals replacing a toucan crossing at Charlotte Street, but they don't seem to go to green when the parallel pedestrian crossing is green and no conflicting movements are occurring. There is also a significant upsta ... [more]

Maybe it's not finished, maybe it's a mistake, but there's a gap in the border at the dropped kerb for cycle access to Allison Street and the gap is only a fraction of the length of the dropped kerb. There's no such gap in the marked car pa ... [more]

A car parked on shared-use footway, blocking access to cycle path. There's a free car park about 30 seconds' drive away to the right.

Unsigned dropped kerbs allowing cycle access to Ellangowan Road at Haggs Road, but no dropped kerb from shared-use footway opposite.

Unsigned dropped kerbs allowing cycle access to Ravenshall Road at Haggs Road, but no dropped kerb from shared-use footway opposite.

New tactiles and non-flush dropped kerbs, but poor road surface at gateway on Dumbreck Road shared-use footway.

A dropped kerb has now been installed in McIntyre Street, at end of path linking from Clydeside Expressway

The end of a street neighbouring the Langlands Cycle Path, with dropped kerb for access, but beware of the gully installed with its bars parallel to the direction of travel, which may catch skinny tyres.

The closure of Gairbraid Avenue, opposite from Lochburn Road across Maryhill Road, exempts cycles. However, the dropped kerb for getting off of the Maryhill Road carriageway is at a really awkward position for those making the crossing from ... [more]

Car parked blocking dropped kerb to toucan crossing at end of West Princes Street. No double yellows to act as a deterrent either.

A dropped kerb in the middle of the end of the road would be preferable to one at the side, not least due to the obstruction of the columns and tactiles next to them. The path to the left leads to the Garscube Landscape Link #23797.

Litter bin and less-than-vertical signpost obstructing dropped kerb at entrance to path to Forth & Clyde Canal

Not only is there vertical upstand left at dropped kerb after resurfacing, but now the road markings have been reinstated with a loading bay marked over half of the dropped kerb!

New dropped kerb at closed-off junction of New City Road and St George's Road. (See also #30362)

New dropped kerb at puffin-style toucan crossing in Saltmarket, leading to Smarter Choices Smarter Places segregated cycle route to Glasgow Green

Newly installed dropped kerb at Gadie Street, opposite Alexandra Park. The dropped kerbs on the Provan Road crossing have also been renewed and are lower than before.

Road closure exempting cycles at foot of Dixon Street, and Toucan Crossing on Clyde Street, leading to NCN 75 on riverside. Useful link from St Enoch Square.

Newly dropped kerbs on approach to Glasgow Green, with People's Palace in background

Is this the start/end of the shared use facility? Signage suggests it carries on but there is no further signage further east. (see also #29465) If this is indeed the start of the footway cycling section, why not make it like #29470 and av ... [more]
