A fairly new cycle link on Hopehill Road, including some new green space created by shortening the former carriageway on this side of the closure.

Obstructive car and van parking on Striven Gardens.

I thought I could get through on the left at Striven Gardens, but see #108225.

An improvement at last at Doune Quadrant and Doune Gardens. Not perfect, but at least usable on a standard bike.

This type of infra is excellent but will be wasted money unless protective measures are included too. @GlasgowCC @collin_little @GoBikeGlasgow https://t.co/QRSaqPbHhQ

@GoBikeGlasgow constant parking in front of the cycle path at bottom of Corrour Road in Newlands. Happening everyday. Double yellow lines and cycle path paint worn away https://t.co/ubCvvYCEfB

The road does not extend as far as the flats in Lauderdale Gardens, making room for some grass and trees. But no dropped kerbs at either end of the path to assist with cycling through the area.

Filtered permeability in Sydenham Lane.

Cycle parking outside the sports centre in Yoker. It would be better with dropped kerbs to allow cycling through the road closure.

Permeability for pedestrians only. Although there is a sort of ramp up to the kerb on this side, on the other side it is just a high kerb (see #48702).

Bollards at the end of Rhindmuir Road, at the start of the path to Coatbridge Road.

The path joins the car park without a dropped kerb for cyclists to rejoin the carriageway. All that matters seems to be car parking.

No dropped kerb for access to path network at Blackburn Street.

One road exits to Paisley Road West, the one opposite only has pedestrian access. A missed opportunity to improve cycle permeability for local journeys. 20mph zones only on side streets in Glasgow.

No access for cycles at road closure between Milnpark Gardens and Milnpark Street. Only pedestrians can go between the two streets. A gully installed the wrong way around creating an unnecessary hazard for cycles.

No access for cycles at road closure between Milnpark Street and Milnpark Gardens. Must enter via Paisley Road West along with all the other vehicular traffic.

Milnpark Street - no through route to Cornwall Street, and no vehicular access to Milnpark Gardens either. No attempt to cater for cycling. As for those road markings in the foreground - they worked well!

The road closure in Ashley Street has a sort of hump to facilitate cycling, and some parking stands.

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

Good filtered permeability in parts of the new Richmond Gate housing development, but wouldn't it have been better to provide a raised crossing (as at nearby #95369) for this path between the park and the houses?

The cycle track linking Kingarth Street with Victoria Road, right at the bus stop.

There is a cycle track linking Kingarth Street with Victoria Road, but it's right at the bus stop. Hopefully this will be sorted by the South City Way works.

The cycle track between Bowman Street and Victoria Road goes around the bus shelter. Hopefully this will be improved by the South City Way works.

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

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.

Road closure on Whitevale Street, with no exemption for cycles. A useful street for crossing Dennistoun.

FAO @Darkerside @GoBikeGlasgow @isersmalone New Balvicar St cycle gate. https://t.co/hsgCQah4xm [A site where car parking regularly blocked the cycle track entrance before e.g. #93805.]

The Doune Quadrant/Doune Gardens problem is still very much there.

Texting, engine running, not aware of those around her...

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 Striven Gardens, west end. Unique filtering. Also unique in that it isn't blocked by a parked car like normal. https://t.co/ZTSmnVoTHF

The cycle track linking Albert Road and Victoria Road has been blocked by a cycle hire station. Hopefully this will be sorted during the South City Way work.

Fern Lane is well surfaced (for a back lane) and has a single bollard to prevent through motor traffic, making it a useful alternative to the busy Crow Road..

Replacement for Checkpoint Shelley (see #26285).

The Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route crosses the zebra crossing across Auldhouse Road, then heads up Holeburn Road.

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

Getting from Sandy Road to NCN7 on Beith Street involves negotiating a maze of parked cars and kerbs.

A new toucan crossing on Beith Street for the new Lidl store, but needlessly difficult to get to from Anderson Street due to its position and all the clutter, including kerbs, in the way.

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.

Glasgow really pushing the boat out on cycling infrastructure I see... https://t.co/xEq1oobYaI

It appears that the cycle route goes along the footway (which isn't signed as shared use) because no dropped kerbs or other arrangements have been made to get past the road closure in Waterside Street. The bollard has received stripy tape.

Baltic St provides a low-traffic route right across Dalmarnock, but only some of the transitions between path and road are any good, such as here at Connal St.

Newly installed dropped kerbs for cycling through to Galloway St, although this couple headed for the footway to avoid the reversing car in the turning head.

The deadend section of Viewpoint Road could be connected up to Stobhill Road and Balgrayhill Road better for cycling.

A short section of shared-use footway leading to the toucan crossing across Great Western Road, but no dropped kerb, unlike #87530.

The end of Lochburn Road, blocked with railway sleepers, but with a gap for bikes and pedestrians. The guy on a bike, visible in the background, was lost and looking for the canal path (on the embankment to the right).

Cycle track through closed off road between Claremont St and Argyle St.

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

New cycle-through in Springburn #permeability #glasgowcycling https://t.co/nFCKiO6g2G

A forlorn Fire Path in Hobart Street, with no exemption for cycling.

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.

Beautiful new filtered permeability on one of the streets I use as a shortcut - big improvement! @S4CGlasgow https://t.co/ChvFGNH15J

McPhater Street outside the Piping Centre is now blocked off with bollards.

Gap through Fire Path, but is it legal to cycle?

New cycle parking outside West Street subway station.

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

No physical impediment to cycling through the road closure over the bridge between Chestnut Street and Kippen Street, but the 'No Through Road' signs as in #71226 imply it isn't legal to do so.

Although there are 'No Through Road' signs without any exemption for cycles, there is no physical impediment to cycling over the railway bridge between Kippen Street and Chestnut Street.

While it is physically possible to cycle straight on, it involves going through the 'No Entry' signs and across the strip of footway between the two roads. Permeability for cycling should have been considered when this was built.

The segregated cycle track on Scotland Street turns left into West Street. Anyone wanting to turn right into West Street has to turn sharply at the gap in the railings. Minimal cycle parking outside West Street subway station, and a van ... [more]

A van parked on the footway outside West Street subway startion, when there is plenty of space to park legally and for free on the road. The cycle route crosses the footway to join the segregated cycle track on the other side of the road ... [more]

Golly, wonder how that happened. Lawless sponging drivers burdening city taxpayers with crash repair costs yet again? http://t.co/7y4WkjAvLU

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

Although there are tiny drainage gaps at each side, this roadblock could easily be altered to properly allow though cycling along Earlspark Avenue. UPDATE June 2016: See #82489

Not the prettiest of road closures on Hathaway Street, but possible to cycle through. [2017 Update: Also now possible to drive through since bollards have been knocked down.]

Not the prettiest of road closures on Hathaway Street, but possible to cycle through.

'No Through Road except cycles' except no provision for cycles is made at the road closure (see #62876).

There is no gap for cycles even though the 'No Through Road' sign at #62877 said there would be!

There is no gap for cycles even though the 'No Through Road' signs at #62874 said there would be!

'No Through Road except cycles' except no provision for cycles is made at the road closure (see #62875).

Wilton Street is blocked midway by a fence.

Cycle parking near Great Western Road

No dropped kerb on this side of the road closure, on quiet route to supermarket. Update 2016: Fixed, see #86106.

The end of Holeburn Road has been closed off at Auldhouse Road, with a gap for cycles, but no protection from obstructive parking.

Closed road with Fire Path and a cycle gap at each side

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.

'No Entry except cycles' at a link with Ascot Court housing development

Cycle track across road closure of Maryland Drive at Paisley Road West.

Diagonal road closure of Old Dumbarton Road at Yorkhill Street/Regent Moray Street. Although physically possible, it is illegal to cycle through. There is a Fire Path beyond the Puffin crossing.

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]

Road closure that exempts cycles on Gairbraid Avenue at Maryhill Road. See also #52205.

Pedestrianised section of John Street where cycling is permitted, but only southbound. Why not both ways? There are No Entry signs at the other end of this block.

Road closure in newly redeveloped area that doesn't exempt cycles, against Glasgow City Council's stated policy: http://www.glasgow.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=6908 "The design of new developments should be permeable for pedestrians and ... [more]

Road closure with gap for cycles

Fire Path where cyclists are legally allowed to go around the side.

Road closure with only through passage for pedestrians. Would be advantageous to allow cycle access too.

Road closure at west end of Overnewton Street is open to cycles in the Traffic Order, and although dropped kerbs have been provided, it was never signed, so it is a secret cycleway!

Knocked-over cycle sign at road closure, which has been like this for a few weeks, leaning at various angles and directions

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

Road closure in Virginia Street

Road closure in Kelvin Drive exempting cycles

Clouston Street road closure partially blocked by car parking. "Cycles Only" signs might help.

Road closure in Hotspur Street exempting buses and cycles

Not as bad as Doune Quadrant (see #36208) but car parking in Striven Gardens again causing problems for cyclists heading through road closure. Needs proper "Cycles Only" signage.

Stupidly awkward chicane around railing in Doune Quadrant/Doune Gardens, made even worse by car parking. Needs railing removed and proper "Cycles Only" signage.

Novar Drive blocked near Hyndland Road, without any gap for cycles. UPDATE 2015: There is now a smooth strip through the centre of this Fire Path, although the signage is unchanged. See #73117.

Gap in road closure on Kingsborough Gardens

Spot the through route for cycles! No Through Road without "except cycles" plates, poor signage of cycle bypasses to Fire Path road closure. Colleges Cycle Route on West Princes Street.

West Street cycle track, at Scotland Street junction
