Morven Street is a 'No Through Road except cycles' but has no access from the westbound side of Paisley Road West.

Bus boarders have now been installed on the Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane, and await markings. The transition is a bit rough, but not as bad as the step for bus passengers at the raised kerb.

Bus boarders have now been installed on the Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane, and await markings.

The end of the Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane, at the Cowdenhill Road/Lincoln Avenue junction. The cycle lane stops just after the bus stop. The bus boarder is still under construction.

Indiscriminate car parking in the Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane. Ideally, this section could be rebuilt, with the cycle lane going to the left of a new car parking layby where the cycle lane is.

The Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane. Some of the traffic cylinders were missing on this section.

The Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane. Note that the bus driver is picking up the passenger on the street corner rather than at the bus stop since no alternative arrangements have been made at most of the bus stops yet.

The Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane at the turn-off for the canal path. Since the cycle lane stops at Lincoln Avenue, this is where many will leave it for the longer route to town along the canal path. The sign is obscured by tree bran ... [more]

A temporary bus stop deployed while the Great Western Road cycle lane is built. This was the only temporary bus stop sign I saw in use.

A bus boarder under construction for the Great Western Road cycle lane. There is a temporary bus stop on the next corner.

The start of the Great Western Road cycle lane. The motorists have found somewhere else to park - on the footway.

No bus boarder at this bus stop, requiring anyone cycling to overtake stopped buses in the busy outside lanes. The cycle lane starts just after the bus stop.

No cycle lane on this section of Great Western Road, just arrows urging drivers to move out.

Roadworks for the installation of the westbound cycle lane on Great Western Road.

The pop-up cycle lane on Great Western Road is to end at Lincoln Avenue. After that, there are just discontinuous peak hour bus lanes.

Roadworks for the installation of the Great Western Road cycle lane. The crossing between Keal Avenue and Kearn Avenue is still no better for cycling across (see #100425).

Roadworks for the installation of the Great Western Road cycle lane. The marking for the start of the cycle lane appear to be unusually long. The marking for the cycle lane itself is another unusual choice.

Roadworks for the installation of the Great Western Road cycle lane. Here 'bus stop' markings have been removed, and the road marked out for the installation of a temporary bus boarder.

Roadworks for the installation of the Great Western Road cycle lane.

Roadworks for the installation of the Great Western Road cycle lane. There were a lot of cars parked inside the cones.

Start of the roadworks for the installation of the Great Western Road cycle lane.

A short length of painted cycle lane appears next to the cycle lane sign. The previous cycle lane sign didn't have any cycle lane.

Since there is only a shared footway on this side of Saughs Road at this point, anyone using it wanting to go to Robroyston station must go left to cross Saughs Avenue before starting to head towards the station.

This must be a cycle path! Access to ASDA supermarket and retail park from the shared footway at Saughs Road.

The end of the shared footway on Saughs Avenue. But since there is a shared footway across the toucan crossing, there is really no need for the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign. However, the shared footway is far too narrow.

A shared footway and toucan crossing on Saughs Road. The shared footway on this side continues as far as the dead-end turning for a future development, and the footway on the other side of the road becomes shared-use at the crossing.

The shared-use sign seen in #112689 is single-sided, and there is only a dropped kerb crossing on the southwest and southeast sides of the roundabout, not the northeast side.

No crossing from the exit from Robroyston Park to the shared footway on the east side of Robroyston Park. The footway on the near side is not shared-use.

No cycle infrastructure on Crow Road through Anniesland Cross.

The staggered toucan crossings across Berryknowes Road do not even line up with the path from the flats.

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

Signage for the Cardonald Quietway on the right-hand side of Linthaugh Road, but not very easy to read from the left-hand carriageway (which, since the footway is not shared-use, is where approaching cyclists should be). Quite frankly, t ... [more]

The A726 dual carriageway approaching the Hurlet junction.

A route sign for NCN7/75 on Linthaugh Road, and cycle only access on Dormanside Road.

When Drumry Road East was first closed off at the Great Western Road roundabout, the traffic order exempted cycles from the closure. But nothing was done to facilitate cycle access, and even now that there is a shared-use footway on the oth ... [more]

A mobile shop van parked on a footway buildout rather than using an empty parking space nearer the static shops. The bus stop is only served by the once-a-day service 709. This section of road used to have a cycle lane that followed t ... [more]

The usual obstructive parking encroaching the door-zone cycle lane and pavement parking in Alderman Road. Maybe it's time for the Alderman Road scheme to be ripped up and a cycleway built next to the footway and car parking placed next to t ... [more]

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

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

A major road crossing, with the direct route across the dual carriageway blocked by a barrier at the far side and no dropped kerb, and only a pedestrian crossing to the left to get across to the residential roads on the far side.

The spacious Great Western Road, with no space set aside for safe cycling.

Great Western Road - plenty of room but no protected space for cycling.

A gate at the end of the path from the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath at Great Western Road, with gaps both sides, but only access to the footway and westbound carriageway.

Linking the two halves of Crow Road for cycling would provide a local alternative to the hostile A739 dual carriageway, but motorists' needs appear to come first.

No room for cycle infrastructure on Great Western Road? There seems to be ample room for everything else.

Do not attempt to cross the Moss Road expressway here.

Not sure what this is, but wasn't designed with bikes in mind & cars regularly demolish it. National cycle route 7. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/fLJMPbMu79

Pollok's road network is not cycle friendly. Will the Peat Road roundabout replacement plans be modified to rectify this?

Crow Road has a local access road for a distance approaching Anniesland (and the listed Anniesland Tower), but no alternative to the main carraigeway through Jordanhill to the south.

The footways each side of the A8 Shieldhall Road are largely identical, but the council has decided that cycling is only allowed on one of them.

That Advance Stop Line is sure encouraging people to cycle!

No cycling facilities east of the Broomhouse roundabout, on the road to Uddingston, but the footway has been upgraded so pedestrians can take their chances with the traffic rather than use the stepped ramp footbridge.

A wider view of the toucan crossing shown in #89015 that leads only to the bus stop in the distance (beside the bus). The toucan crossings do not connect anywhere where it is legal to cycle other than the carriageway. The crossings are barr ... [more]

Despite the footway of the A89 not allowing cycling, and despite this crossing leading to nothing but a bus stop that does not have any bus services carrying bikes, a toucan crossing has been installed across Coatbridge Road. Does this come ... [more]

A messy join between old and new footways on Coatbridge Road.

On the right of the crash barrier the A89 dual carriageway and its single footway, to the left the currently shut path beneath the bridges southwards. Off to the left by the fence, the path to Rhindmuir Road.

I've noticed from my travels that a road in England would probably have a shared-use footway through here, but this is not the case in Scotland. The A89 expects cyclists to be on the carriageway, or go via Uddingston on the Sustrans route.

The width restriction shown in #88851, and also showing the massive over-capacity of Edinburgh Road.

Shared-use footway along Maryhill Road dual carriageway, with sign for Milngavie. Until East Dunbartonshire Council finishes its Bears Way cycle route, you'll have to find your own way from the City Boundary.

Right turns to and from Pollokshaws Road at Christian Street are only for cycles

Unrestricted car parking in cycle lanes on Corkerhill Road, outside sports centre with its own off-road car park (which was half empty at the time of photo).

Right turn lane for cycles only at point on dual carriageway where motor vehicles cannot turn right. Connects Alderman Road cycle lanes to Colleges Cycle Route in Jordanhill.

Worn out cycle lane on Alderman Road, complete with potholes since it wasn't resurfaced when the outside lane was.
