A van parked over the dropped kerb that allows cycle access to Balvicar Street and Queen's Park.

Parking across a cycle track traffic filter. This area is a Controlled Parking Zone "park in marked bays only".

The road end cycle track completely blocked by parked cars in Claremont Street.

A newly installed dropped kerb at the east end of Henderson Street, but the corresponding dropped kerb in Napiershall Street has an occupied marked parking bay across it.

Cycle hangar in Henderson Street, and newly installed dropped kerbs for pedestrians crossing.

In an almost empty street (see #183811), one of the few vehicles parked is blocking the dropped kerb for Garriochmill Way. A build-out is required, as well as removing the parking bay markings.

In an almost empty street, one of the few vehicles parked is blocking the dropped kerb for Garriochmill Way. A build-out is required, as well as removing the parking bay markings. See also #183812.

Park Drive stopped up to motor traffic at Woodlands Road, but cycle access maintained.

Another view of the 'Give Way' line in #182981. Note the pedestrian using the diagonal cycle crossing.

A cluttered approach to this 'Give Way' line. See also #182982.

Placemaking (I think) at Ferry Road. Benches have been installed next to the bin, but still no restoration of direction signage (such as in #37216) for the cycle routes.

Filtered permeability for pedestrians only, with barriers and a lack of a conveniently sited dropped kerb on the other side impeding cycling. Not a major desire line, but I came this way due to roadworks on the main road.

An off-side cycle lane on Hopehill Road. I'm not sure what this is for.

The start of the Ferry Road cycleway, leading to the Old Dumbarton Road and Benalder Street cycleways. The sharrows point cyclists along the main carriageway and not onto the cycleway.

It made sense to someone… somewhere… https://t.co/vptZitAdIL

The route sign says "Primary School" but the dropped kerb at the junction is of poor quality, with no obvious dropped kerb on the other side of the road closure in Dowanhill Street. The Colleges Route cycle lane has been made narrower an ... [more]

The COP26 fence completely obstructs the riverside path that forms part of the Kelvin Walkway, and although there is a gate and it is open, it opens onto the remaining width of the path blocking it.

A van parked not in a marked parking bay, but partly blocking access to the dropped kerb and the path through Yorkhill Park.

The Ferry Road dropped kerb (see #175002) did not stay clear for long. Again, materials dumped partly obstructing users of this dropped kerb.

Dropped kerb at this end of path from Inchfad Drive to Kendoon Avenue and Dunkenny Road.

The slab paving work at Ferry Road is now complete but the asphalt footway remains to be finished. Some graffiti has been painted over, but new graffiti has appeared. The obstruction seen in #173875 has been removed. The former cycle dir ... [more]

The dropped kerb at the end of Ferry Road is now clear from obstructions (see #173875), but the footway surface is still incomplete.

The cycle off-slip at Finnieston Street allows cyclists to legally leave the carriageway and use the toucan crossing across Lancefield Quay to get to the National Cycle Network route 75, even when the traffic signals are on red. The similar ... [more]

The one remaining cycle off-slip at the Finnieston Street/Clyde Arc junction. The one at #173654 has been blocked off with a railing.

A parking bay painted across a dropped kerb.

No progress to report on work at the North Woodside Road/Maryhill Road crossing.

An improvement on #89968 at the end of Anderson Street. A dropped kerb has also been provided to access the road directly. There is a toucan crossing just off to the right as well.

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. Updated at #175001 and #175002.

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.
