The odd narrow footway arrangement under the Castlebank Street railway bridge approaching NCN7. There is a dropped kerb to join the path immediately after the bridge (see #173856), while the rest of the road is just a dead-end alongside NCN ... [more]

The footway on the north side of Castlebank Street resumes, but is fenced off just west of the toucan crossing (as seen in #173896). That doesn't stop people using it, and a worn desire line is visible in the grass verge too. NCN7 crosse ... [more]

The northern footway of Castlebank Street doesn't last long, and like South Street, has large gaps in it. A traffic island is the only aid for crossing. NCN7 shares the footway on the right with pedestrians. The site on the left is being ... [more]

The junction of Sawmill Road and South Street. NCN7 is visible on the footway to the right.

The Sawmill Road junction used to have the cycle path on a former railway bridge over the top of the road, but now that has been demolished, the cycle route is on the South Street shared footway to the right. The footway on this side res ... [more]

The footway between Castlebank Street (or Beith Way) and Beith Street.

The northern footway on South Street comes to another break, and again there is a desire line worn in the grass. NCN7 is on the opposite shared footway. Meanwhile, a line of car showroom flags marks the course of the demolished former ra ... [more]

The resumption of the South Street footway at Ferryden Street was brief, and it comes to an end again after the car showroom built on the course of the cycle path. The path used to cross Harmsworth Street here on a former railway bridge. ... [more]

South Street, with worn desire line in the grass verge where there is a missing footway, a speed camera that has been out of use for a long time, a traffic counter, and NCN7 on the footway across the road.

South Street carries quite a lot of industrial traffic, due to the area it is in. So the cycle route (on the footway on the right) is so unattractive to these two cyclists that they prefer this road to the shared footway cycle route. The ... [more]

The footway on this side of South Street resumes, with the worn desire line continuous from #173806. The NCN7 cycle route on the opposite footway is not good enough to attract these two to use it.

The toucan crossing is used to follow the cycle route which continues on the footway of the other side of South Street, but there is a clear desire line for staying on this side. There is a short break before the footway resumes at Ferryden ... [more]

Even this rebuilt entrance crossing does not have dropped kerbs for pedestrians.

The diagonal cycle crossing from Bunhouse Road to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery still awaits commissioning.

The shared footway in Bunhouse Road has been covered in beige surfacing, except for a gap just beyond the crossing. The main pedestrian egress from the car park comes up the ramp on the left.

Still finishing work to be done on the rebuilt Bunhouse Road shared footway, and still no indication of priorities at the car park entrance.

Still finishing work to be done on the rebuilt Bunhouse Road shared foootway, and the cycle route sign is pointing the wrong way, and least for Loch Lomond.

The footway of Castlebank Street has been marked as a cycle route in OpenStreetMap, but there is no evidence to say so on the ground. However, it is a gap in the network, more direct and smoother in surface than the parallel NCN7 route, abo ... [more]

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.

Council destination sign all arms pointing the wrong way, and narrow green strip cycleway poorly implemented and signed.

Another view of #172734, showing the narrow footway between the toucan crossing and the boundary fence.

Not a promising look for the Sighthill "cycling village". A toucan crossing with not even a bike's length between the kerb and the fence at the back of the footway. See also #172813.

The shared footway on Bunhouse Road has been rebuilt, but has not had its dividing line reinstated. The zebra crossing has a random section of tactile paving nearby with no obvious purpose.

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 line narrowing the shared footway over the motorway bridge, and a scooter user approaching.

The shared footway over the motorway bridge has a solid line marking near the railing. Is this because the railing is too low for a shared use footway/cycleway to be there?

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.

Although not itself part of the National Cycle Network, Sustrans has provided "This way to" stickers for NCN routes 7 and 75 for this section of signed cycle route which meets up with the NCN routes in Cessnock. This section is part of a 'c ... [more]

The Hillington Road footway link between the residential area of Hillington and the industrial estate is not signed as being anything other than an ordinary footway, but I remember it been shown as proposed for redetermination in part of a ... [more]

Fire Path in Balgonie Road, with no provision for through cycling. The sign has an unusual partial yellow background. Normally yellow backgrounds are used with a full border, to make the sign more conspicuous. No need for this nonsense! ... [more]

The footway of Hillington Road (at least part of which is shared-use) is loosing width to the bush, which will need cut back at some point. The toucan crossing connects Penilee and Hillington as part of a minimal signage quietway style c ... [more]

The footway cycle lane from Maxwell Drive ends at the toucan crossing on St Andrew's Drive. The person cycling had come from the path from Maxwell Grove.

Car parking on the footway cycle lane in Maxwell Drive. The cycle lane leads to a toucan crossing across St Andrew's Drive and is two-way.

The cyclist avoids the pavement cycle lane that the driver up ahead is in the process of parking in.

A ramp has been provided behind the bus stop, in addition to steps, to connect from Thornliebank Road up to Cartcraigs Road. (This does not form part of the cycle route, but could be used for connections to and from it.)

I came around the corner from Barrhead Road into Pollokshaws Road to find the footway there is now shared-use. There was no obvious start to this.

The western footway of Dumbreck Road over the railway and motorway bridges here is now shared-use. Although the footway is only slightly wider, various permanent clutter has been removed such as a cabinet and sign poles.

The funding sign for the Dumbreck Road/Mosspark Boulevard junction improvements, that included a staggered toucan crossing and footway upgrade to shared-use. This project linked up the Haggs Road/Dumbreck Road shared footway and NCN7/75 ... [more]

The western footway of Dumbreck Road is now shared-use as far as the Mosspark Boulevard junction, although the only sign to confirm this appears to be the low-level green sign seen on the railings in the background.

Installation work on a protected cycle lane in Royston Road. Alterations appear to have been made.

After the bridge, the footway reverts to the east side of the gated section of Bogside Road.

The footway on the gated road changes sides at the bridge, and the remains of Bogside Road disappear into the housing development in the distance.

As with #169532, the first opportunity to leave the presumably shared footway (there are no signs to confirm this) is beyond the roundabout where a dropped kerb crossing has been provided.

The first opportunity to leave the presumably shared footway from the toucan crossings at the motorway junction is up beyond the roundabout at the housing on the left (see #169533).

A toucan crossing across the Clydeside Expressway sliproad, but not across Finnieston Street. Nothing to say any footway is legal for cycling. The toucan crossing is one of a chain of toucan crossings leading to the path to Minerva Street.

That moment when you stop to take a photo and there's a cyclist approaching on the narrow shared footway and a bus approaching on the adjacent busway, before there's time to get the camera ready. All I could do was to move into the side.

The shared-use footway on Archerhill Road crosses sides, from the wide footway to the narrow footway with a campervan parked on it, right at the end of the zig-zags for the toucan crossing and next to a junction.

Car parking by a professional driver on the shared-use footway on Archerhill Road.

Regular, not sporadic, enforcement of dbl yellows is needed on Spean St. This shared footway/cycle path is blocked daily by cars, SUVs, vans and lorries. 21 vehicles today. Zero space for people to social distance either. @GlasgowCC ple ... [more]

Some sort of ramp between the roadway and the footway, then a footway crossing on the approach to the station access. There's another of these ramps at #112866.

A roundabout where a bend would have sufficed. At least the previous roundabout has imminent plans for actual roads leading off to a new housing development.

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.

There's nothing to indicate whether the footway that came from the toucan crossings back at the motorway junction is shared-use or not. In any case, anyone using the footway has a particularly indirect route to the station. At this roundabo ... [more]

Although there are no signs on this section, this footway joins together two toucan crossings so can probably be considered shared-use. The roundabout on this side of the motorway has been considerably enlarged.

A toucan crossing at Saughs Avenue. There is no indication whether or not the shared footways continue beyond the crossing up Saughs Avenue.

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.

The shared footway between Saughs Road and Robroyston Road. It continues as far as the Nova Business Park.

The start of the shared footway on the east side of Robroyston Road. Just a dropped kerb to allow cyclists to join.

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.

A shared-use footway on Robroyston Park outside the Nova Business Park.

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.

Footway cycleways routinely used for car parking at Leverndale Hospital, including more tyre tracks seen in the frost.

Footway cycle markings near Leverndale Hospital.

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.

The footway markings on Leverndale Road end into an Advance Stop Line at the Crookston Road junction. There is no cycle provision on the main road. If there is moving traffic, this layout means cyclists waiting until the lights turn red ... [more]

Footway cycle markings at the main Leverndale Road roundabout, and a van driver parked on the footway cycleway across the road.

Langhaul Road approaching the Leverndale Road roundabout. Suddenly cycle marking start appearing on the footway, without any dropped kerbs to get there.

Footway cycling on Langlands Road where the painted cycle lanes are blocked by parked cars.

The A726 dual carriageway approaching the Hurlet junction.

Pavement parking just after NCN7 and NCN75 turn into Rosshall Park. This is right next to a car park!

Obstructive pavement parking on the shared-use footway on Dalsholm Road between the Garscube Estate path and the Kelvin Walkway, forcing riders onto the crumbling carriageway. There is a free car park at the top of the hill in the backgroun ... [more]

A poor end to the footway from The Antonine Road at the Goals access road, part of the Drumchapel Way signed walking route.

A poor quality shared-use footway on Halgreen Avenue. The other side of the road doesn't even have a footway, even though it is outside a school!

The end of the widened footway and transition onto an on-road painted cycle lane along Alderman Road.

Probably the start of the cycleway alluded to in #107051.

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 Cycle Quietway has been signed through Knightswood, but doesn't use the newly widened and converted shared-use footway on Dyke Road.

Glasgow's joined up infra as it transitions from segregated to 'shared with pedestrians'. A pole and a parked van. Nice. https://t.co/I1zYIvWeLB

Cycling home with Flora along Pollokshaws Road. Traffic management for the shared path resurfacing better cycle provision than path itself! Buy hey, 6 lanes for motors obviously essential https://t.co/Whhbubr5SC

According to Network Rail, the railway bridge on Muirhead Road has been "rebuilt stronger and wider to enable two-way traffic, cycle route and pedestrian footpath". I don't see a cycle route. https://www.networkrailmediacentre.co.uk/news ... [more]

A shared footway in Victoria Park Drive South, and signage for local destinations.

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.

I genuinely thought they would widen this extremely narrow footway as part of the Knightswood cycle route works, but no. See also #99502. At this point the shared-use footway on Dyke Road changes into a cycleway formed by orcas.

A blind corner on the Dyke Road shared-use footway. See also https://twitter.com/CalumCook91/status/1022590507606831106

The utilities work on Old Dumbarton Road fail to take any account of the cycle route which crosses from one footway to the other at this point.

Utilities work on the shared-use footway on Old Dumbarton Road (lasting several weeks) and no account taking of cycling.

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

An update on #99502, double white lines have been added. Note the two on bikes on the footway across the other side of the road.

This just doesn't look good at all.

A new cycle route under construction on Dyke Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. This was the last sign of work I saw heading down Dyke Road. Perhaps the footway will get widened. Update at #100297 and #101274.

A new cycle route under construction on Dyke Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. I imagine this isn't finished.
