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.

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
