The A726 dual carriageway approaching the Hurlet junction.

The A726 dual carriageway approaching the Hurlet.

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.

A new cycle route under construction on Dyke Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. A shared footway is going in here, and some education of the locals on the purpose of the shared footway appears to be necessary.

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]

A new cycle route on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The view from the rear of the bus shelter in #99493.

A new cycle route on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. Quite why a proper bus stop bypass wasn't installed here I don't know. The bus shelter should be moved closer to the boarder and the segregated cycle tr ... [more]

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. I figure this probably isn't finished, but all the surface work appears to be done and only the lining remains to be finished. However, what alignmen ... [more]

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The purpose of the shared footway appears to be lost on the locals.

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The approach to the toucan crossing appears to be quite messy. I'm not sure why the white lines extend around each corner into the side roads. Maybe thi ... [more]

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. Looking back towards the toucan crossing in #99488.

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The route crosses sides here at this new toucan crossing. Maybe they'll put in some cycle parking for the shops before they are finished. Quite a sho ... [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 shared use sign (see #65297) for the Broomielaw footway has been removed and signs now direct cyclists to the Clyde Walkway. But old habits die hard.

Could the route alignment be any worse? How about a cycle crossing straight across to the new path (see #93791) at the Village development rather than the split toucan?

If you're expecting signs for NCN 7 or 75, they are visible on the right.

The route sign directs cyclists up a flight of steps at the new eatery, where once there was a path into the park (see #29467). This is not good enough!

Despite the footway of residential Old Polmadie Road being designated as shared-use (see #98669), the narrow footway of the busy New Rutherglen Road has not. However, this non-standard route signage seems to assume it has been. A new eat ... [more]

The dropped kerb (see #29466) for accessing the M74 junction shared-use footway has inexplicably been removed! Despite the position of the sign on the left, the footway of New Rutherglen Road eastwards is not for cycling.

This footway at Springburn Road appears to be part of the cycle route to Springburn, but there is a complete lack of shared-use signage. It also suffers from pavement car parking (see Streetview) on weekdays.

Active travellers on foot and bike, your leafy shared use path of safety must be rendered useless cos the three lanes of important motorists have to be informed. @CalumCook91 @GoBikeGlasgow https://t.co/rMPWuWQsBb

The Fastlink busway was built without any dropped kerbs outside the Festival Park gate, hindering cycle access between the Science Centre and Festival Park. The footway here is to be converted to shared use.

Not a dual carriageway, but two parallel two-way roads, the nearest of which is reserved for buses only. The footway on this side is to be converted (or just redesignated?) for shared use.

The northern footway of Govan Road is being rebuilt for shared use.

The northern footway of Govan Road being rebuilt for shared use, with some low branches coming over the wall from the park.

Still no sign as to whether this widened footway is shared use or not, now that the one-way carriageway is unusable for cycling in the other direction. However, there is this parking sign where no parking is allowed.

Bus lane cameras. Will there be cycle lane cameras? A stepped two-way cycle track is being built along part of Govan Road, but the footway has been reduced to a minimal width, resulting in people walking on the cycle track. An extra metr ... [more]

The start of the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway in Ferry Road is completely anonymous.

Old Dumbarton Road with the cycleway on the far side, passing an old gate.

The point on Old Dumbarton Road where the cycleway crosses to the opposite footway.

There appears to be a gap in the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route at this bus stop in Barrhead Road.

People in Pollok want to cycle, but are being failed by the Council which provides big busy roads with no cycle facilities going where people want to go.

People in Pollok want to cycle, but are being failed by the Council which provides big busy roads with no cycle facilities going where people want to go. So this shopping trip is along the footway (which isn't shared use until after the jun ... [more]

As soon as the protected cycle lane finishes, the girl in #90598 goes onto the footway. And I don't blame her.

A lot of money was spent completely rebuilding Dalmarnock station, and yet the cycle parking has been placed far too close to a wall in what looks like quite a dodgy corner. All the barriers around the Dalmarnock Road/Clyde Gateway junct ... [more]

The position of the dropped kerb seems to be without any thought as to where people might want to cross.

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.

A decaying cycle marking on Edinburgh Road. There is so much potential for a protected cycle facility along the full length of Edinburgh Road, but this is about all there is apart from some ASLs.

Shared use footway blocked by barriers around derelict building, with no diversion. Just as well the street is extremely quiet and doesn't really need shared use footways.

I'm not sure what the point of this is.

Although there are no shared-use signs, the position of this little NCN sign suggests that all cyclists are expected to use this bog standard footway when following the National Cycle Network routes. Or at least that squares with the work-a ... [more]

To indicate a minor road will be closed, half of NCR75 is closed off to cyclists and pedestrians. https://t.co/GbHTksrdce

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.

Route sign hidden by tree branches until the last moment, on narrow shared-use footway.

A continuous footway, Glasgow style! The concrete surface is all cracked up, with a couple of potholes filled already, and an advertising board, facing motor traffic, blocks most of the width of the footway.

The hitherto segregated cycleway turns into a shared-use footway, with an open gutter across the forced desire-line, and into a narrow blind corner at Wallace Street.

A bogus sign for NCN75 (the connection on the right at the toucan crossing is a flight of steps, see #60171, the ramp is to the left), and a sign for the Polmadie Bridge diversion. I don't suppose they've considered cycling in this diversio ... [more]

An extremely narrow corner on the caged footway between Vermont Street and Scotland Street. See #70776 for a wider view of the junction.

A new split toucan crossing across between two fairly narrow footways (see #70773). Removing the island would allow them (especially the opposite footway) to be wider.

As the road crosses the council boundary into East Dunbartonshire, a proper footway appears!

If you want to stay off the carriageway on Balmore Road, tough! The footway diminishes to almost nothing at a few points.

Pollokshields again. Includes token pavement parker on wide empty street. #glasgowcycleinfraday t.co/xN9TIuDkBn See also #64282

Toucan crossing across Maryhill Road. There is nothing to suggest that either footway is shared use.

A rare example of a double-post cycle route sign, but the posts are in the way on the narrow footway. The destinations refer to the ramp down to the canal path, before the billboard, and not the path after the billboard, which goes to Vaila ... [more]

The segregated cycle track ends and cyclists on the Balmore Road Safer Route To School are meant to walk across the canal bridge on the footway

End of Cycle Route, so no need to provide a dropped kerb at road crossing. There was no indication at the toucan crossing that the cycle route moves to the other side of the road.

No cycle facility through busy Dumbreck Road M77 motorway junction, and lots of obstructions on the footway. Nevertheless, a few people did cycle along the footway in the short time I spent here.

Car parking at point where shared-use footway cycleway crosses over Old Dumbarton Road. Google Streetview shows Double Yellow Lines on the roadway here before resurfacing.

Cycle lane painted on footway, with Give Way parkings at entrance gateway

Cycle lane painted onto footway on Old Dumbarton Road

The shared use footway outside the Chris Hoy Velodrome. It stops here and doesn't extend any further east, but doesn't have a dropped kerb for cyclists to rejoin the carriageway.

Pedestrians must turn left along the road with no footway, and are banned from going straight on where there is a footway!
