The full length of the Pearce Lane cycle track. For some strange reason, the dropped kerb at Water Row does not extend to the full width of the cycle track.

The Kelvin Walkway diversion via Contin Place. Still no dropped kerb at the start of the path to Wyndford Drive.

Diversion signed with blue (permanent) rather than yellow NCN stickers. And still no dropped kerb at the start of the path to Contin Place.

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

The Drumchapel Way leaves Halgreen Avenue and takes the steps up to The Antonine Road. There is a bypass ramp, but no dropped kerb at the end for anyone following the route by bike.

Cycle parking at Milton Library and leisure centre, all up against a kerb.

Roadworks blocking most of the shared footway on Smith Street, but no dropped kerb to join the carriageway of this quiet street. No provision for left turns into Northinch Street either.

What I take to be the final layout at the Archerhill Road bus stop. The final white line (seen in #100294) directing cyclists into the undropped kerb has been blacked out.

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.

No dropped kerb at the end of the path linking the two halves of Turnberry Road, so anyone wanting to cycle along the path has to cycle along the footway for a little bit too.

The access to the canal is only from the footway in front of the shops and no account has been taken of the desire line to go straight to and from the carriageway.

The path cyclists are signed along in #100509 does not have a dropped kerb at the end, although there is one is a short distance along the footway near the mini-roundabout.

No actual kerb separating the carriageway and path to the canal, making for a smoother transition.

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

A closeup of the dropped kerb in #100293. The lining directs westbound cyclists into the undropped section of kerb. I am aware of one person who came off her bike at this location.

Call this a dropped kerb? Cut-through to Shafton Road.

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).

Neither signed canal access paths (or the path to the continued Netherton Road) has dropped kerbs.

No dropped kerb at the entrance to a signed path linking Netherton Road to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath.

The approach to the Clyde Tunnel cycle tunnel entrance from Holmfauld Place, with no dropped kerb for anyone that missed the dropped kerb in #99461.

No access to the cycle track from the side road. Not unique.

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.

No dropped kerb at the start of the path from Drumoyne Road to the Craigton Road underpass.

The transition from path to street is not exactly award-winning.

Hopefully the new cycle route proposed for Jura Street will fix the problem of the missing dropped kerb at the ramp up to the M8 motorway underpass.

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.

"Welcome to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital" if arriving on foot or by bike.

A kerb on the approach to the pedestrian crossing across Cathcart Road. The cycle route continues across the other side of the road.

An interesting bollard, but access to the cycle path from the carriageway of Cotton Street involves either cycling along the footway or bumping the low kerb and going through the dirt.

A dropped kerb is to be added for access to the toucan crossing. Surely something that should have been done when this layout was originally built.

No dropped kerb to access toucan crossing across Fountainwell Road from adjacent road-end, and some subsidence in the footway.

This path is listed on the Glasgow City Council website as being part of the Glasgow Cycle Network. Cycle Routes: Stronend Rd Path - Stronend Rd Path N

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

I was surprised to find that the path from London Avenue does not connect across Springfield Road to the path past the velodrome on the same alignment. A crossing is needed here.

Kerb across end of path between Contin Place and Wyndford Drive, on direct route from Tesco to the Kelvin Walkway. The path could be moved to the left a little, away from the wall, to reduce the problem of the blind corner.

Kerb across end of path from Wyndford Drive to Contin Place.

In response to a request for suggestions for minor improvement works, I contacted the council suggesting a dropped kerb at this location and received the following response: "Following an inspection of the cycle path access at Dalmarnock ... [more]

The Sighthill diversion route is obstructed by an undropped kerb.

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.

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

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 my favourite fragment of concrete in Glasgow, just by Science Centre. Been there for years. #nodroppedkerb https://t.co/7slQbFYLU7

I didn't think it was possible for this crossing to become more farcical, but the roadway has been closed, meaning the cycle route bumps kerbs for no purpose.

I don't know why Glasgow hasn't provided angled kerbs on the divider strip as it has elsewhere.

No dropped kerbs at the ends of the path between Wyndford Drive and Contin Place, useful for getting to and from the Kelvin Walkway.

No dropped kerbs at the ends of the path between Contin Place and Wyndford Drive, useful for getting to and from the Kelvin Walkway.

A kerb blocking the start of the path from Glen Dewar Place to Nitshill Road.

Still a kerb to bump for anyone trying to get onto the carriageway next to Bells Bridge, in this case due to the closure of the cycleway by a running event. One chap decided to go over the double kerb nearer the bridge ramp! See also #90342 ... [more]

A poor quality path from Kinfauns Drive across to Annan Drive, with a waymarker post for the Drumchapel Way.

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.

No dropped kerbs at Sword Street crossing on path to Bellgrove Street.

No dropped kerb at end of path to Bellgrove Street.

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.

The kerb shown in #65650 has had an asphalt ramp added so what was meant to be a high quality gateway now looks a bit botched! A bollard has been removed and the motorists are taking advantage of the unenforced double yellows.

Despite the emphasis on 'footpath' and 'pedestrians' on the signs, the only other person I saw on this path was also on a bike. Could do with a dropped kerb here.

As if the Broomielaw shared-use footway wasn't bad enough in its own right, there is vertical upstand on the kerb at this private car park entrance.

Not the best surface for a cycle path. A dropped kerb for joining from the carriageway would also be advantageous.

The Cotton Street access to the Clyde Walkway. A choice of going onto the footway on the approach, or bumping the kerb next to the gate.

The Shore Street access to the Clyde Walkway.

The alignment of Baltic Street is somewhat obstructed at the crossing of Dunn Street (see nearby photos).

Kerbs make the route around the private yard on the left more difficult, impeding access to the Dunn Street toucan crossing.

Unfortunately the alignment of the Dunn Street toucan crossing does not match the alignment of Baltic Street. Even with the private yard on the left, it could be arranged better than this.

Nice straight alignment of Baltic Street, but no dropped kerb at end of path from toucan crossing.

Path from Baltic Street to Dunn Street crossing blocked by kerb.

Two kerbs obstructing access from Baltic Street to the London Road cycle track.

Baltic St provides a low-traffic route right across Dalmarnock, but here at Springfield Road the route is obstructed by a kerb. Dropped kerbs are provided at pedestrian crossing points each side, but they are off to the side and not ideal f ... [more]

The Baltic Street alignment has been obstructed with railings both sides at the Clyde Gateway toucan crossing. This side doesn't even have a dropped kerb! See also #87992.

Still no dropped kerb at cycle path access point next to Dalmarnock Bridge.

Junction crossing newly converted to toucan crossing, including some resurfacing and tactiles, but no dropped kerb for access to Springburn Way! This is meant to be a new cycle route!

The path between Ashgill Road and Liddesdale Terrace needs dropped kerbs at each end.

The path between Liddesdale Terrace and Ashgill Road needs dropped kerbs at each end.

The path between Liddesdale Road and Strathmore Road needs dropped kerbs at each end.

The path between Strathmore Road and Liddesdale Road needs dropped kerbs at each end, and possibly the pedestrian desire line towards Balmore Road should be acknowledged.

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

No dropped kerb to access shared-use footway on Dover St.

The end of the inexplicable and abandoned cycleway on Saracen Street (see also #83824). Are cyclists expected to bump the kerb and use the ASL feeder?

An inexplicable and abandoned cycleway painted on the footway. No dropped kerb to get onto the footway, and none at the far end to leave it (see also #83825). No obvious purpose. (Google Streetview from 2008 shows this in all its glory.)

No dropped kerb on path to toucan crossing across Muirhead Road.

An unnecessary hazard of upstand on a diagonal kerb across the cycle route at Clyde Place.

No cycle access from Reid Street designed into the Clyde Gateway cycle track (see also #71303).

Coll Street not open to cycling at its junction with Darnick Street.

No exemption from road closure for cycles at the end of Ashdene Street.

No exemption from road closure for cycles at the end of Ashdene Street.

Another instance of there being no dropped kerb at the end of a path in the Village development, this time in Govan Road. [This one has since been rectified, see #95263]

As with #71111, there is no dropped kerb at the end of the path to Govan Road. The chap in the previous photo cycled around the turning head to the left.

No dropped kerb at the end of brand new path on brand new road. The lack of dropped kerbs at appropriate places in this development leads to people riding on the footway. (See also #71112.)

This strip of footway needs a gap put into it to allow for through cycling. Otherwise, it's a detour around the car park.

No dropped kerb to join the cycle track if coming from the underpass. Location: Victoria Park, Glasgow (Scotland, United Kingdom)

Narrow cycle lane award: Moss Rd, Govan. The dropped kerb if you wanted to risk it is cleverly blocked by the cabinet http://t.co/1cxTXtRCrf

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

Last month this was a nice flat entry to #Glasgow's main city park. No more. Why? #Cycling #dedesign. @copenhagenize http://t.co/z5PgYtlCFj

No dropped kerb at the end of the path through to North Moraine Lane.

A toucan crossing across the Clyde Gateway at Baltic Street, that is kerbed and fenced off from the street it is meant to reconnect (see also #59298).

Gate blocking most of the width of the access ramp to the Clyde Walkway/NCN75 at Dalmarnock Bridge. There's still no dropped kerb, despite repeated requests to Glasgow City Council, for cyclists coming from the road. However, a sign has bee ... [more]

There is still no dropped kerb to get from the Monteith Row carriageway to the toucan crossing across Greendyke Street. But there is this random segregated use sign on the footway to the right, although it is not clear where cyclists are me ... [more]

As #59263, new cycle signals replacing a toucan crossing at Charlotte Street, but they don't seem to go to green when the parallel pedestrian crossing is green and no conflicting movements are occurring. There is also a significant upsta ... [more]

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

No dropped kerb at the foot of ramp. This is the way cyclists coming over the St Andrew's Suspension Bridge would come if heading for the Morrison's supermarket at Gallowgate.

The exit from King's Park onto Carmunnock Road, where the Cathkin Braes Cycle Route goes onto the footway, but there is no dropped kerb. However, there is a bent direction sign, which doesn't make it clear what cyclists are supposed to do.

The Auldhouse Road exit from Greenbank Park is blocked by a railing and there is no dropped kerb, although the road closure opposite on Holeburn Road has a cycle gap.
