No path connection between the road crossing and the entrance to Hogganfield Park. Have to bump kerb and cross grass. This is a signed walking and cycling route, the Seven Lochs Trail.

Traffic calming by way of filtering, but cycle access not provided, at a number of nearby junctions.

The South City Way cycle route construction is at least now happening on Gorbals Street and Victoria Bridge. While the cycle lane is shut, some cyclists ride on the road, some on the footway.

Filtered permeability for pedestrians only. This road closure was temporarily removed during the COP26 conference (due to road closures elsewhere) but has been reinstated without including cycle access.

Filtered permeability for pedestrians only, with barriers and a lack of a conveniently sited dropped kerb on the other side impeding cycling. Not a major desire line, but I came this way due to roadworks on the main road.

A new path has been built towards Kinfauns Drive, and has Drumchapel Way branded marker posts on either side, but there are no dropped kerbs or any other form of crossing on the road at this point. The original route of the Drumchapel Way ( ... [more]

Looking the opposite way from #180493, the Drumchapel Way path awaits rebuilding on the east side of Kinfauns Drive, but a new path has been build on the west side, ending at a Drumchapel Way marker post next to the bus shelter, but with no ... [more]

The obstructive toucan crossing with kerbs and railings on one side still remains unmodified, and none of the other problems previously noted on the Bilsland Drive cycle lanes have been resolved either.

No attempt has been made by the housing developer to integrate the existing paths into the new road layout, let alone upgrade them. The path on the left connects Daldowie Road with Caledonia Road at the bus terminus.

The road closure on this side does not appear to accommodate cycling, but there is a direction sign at #176164 directing cyclists into this street.

The route sign says "Primary School" but the dropped kerb at the junction is of poor quality, with no obvious dropped kerb on the other side of the road closure in Dowanhill Street. The Colleges Route cycle lane has been made narrower an ... [more]

The carriageway at the end of Park Drive has been claimed for a private car park, and obstructed by a lifting barrier. The sign proclaims it to be private land. This hinders cycle access to Kelvingrove Park.

No access to Blantyre Street from the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway, due to a continuous kerb opposite the junction. While it will probably only affect those wanting access to Blantyre Street itself, i.e. residents, access could have and shou ... [more]

The narrow path to Inchfad Drive does not have a dropped kerb at the Kendoon Avenue end, even though it should be a recognised crossing point from another path directly across the road.

Several of the entrances to Drumchapel Park have no dropped kerbs available to leave the carriageway, and also have railings hindering access. This is one of the shorter ones. The railing on the corner of Hecla Avenue makes it too difficult ... [more]

The closure at the eastern end of Overnewton Street does not provide for through cycling, the cycle parking stands are past their best, and the driver on Haugh Road has no respect for the road markings.

The incomplete Old Dumbarton Road cycleway is unusable for cycling, but is being used for parking vans.

The protracted roadworks to rebuild and extend the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway continue. The https://www.roadworksscotland.org/ website said the road closure to create the raised junction would have started by 7 October and Get Ready Glasgo ... [more]

No dropped kerb at the end of the path through Yorkhill Park at Centurion Way.

The end of Port Street has cycle route signage, but no dropped kerb to access the path seemlessly.

Still no raised crossing or dropped kerb to join the Benalder Street cycle track, which otherwise appears nearly complete, apart from the lamppost. UPDATE: These issues have now been resolved, see #175144.

The Old Dumbarton Road into Ferry Road cycle track is still under construction, and there is no temporary kerb ramp to aid joining the carriageway. There is also a drainage gully oddly in the middle of the westbound cycle lane.

The crossing to the east of Bunhouse Road has now been provided with asphalt ramps to aid pedestrians crossing. No sign of either dropped kerbs or raised crossings being installed. Incorrect corduroy (hazard) tactile paving is still in plac ... [more]

The lining on the new Old Dumbarton Road cycle track has been done, for the section that is complete (either end is still in construction), but there is still no way of crossing the road from the Bunhouse Road shared footway due to kerbs. T ... [more]

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]

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

The building of the Old Dumbarton Road cycle track continues at the Benalder Street/Ferry Road junction, and shows no sign of being complete in time for the COP26 diversion route coming this way. There is a high kerb at the end of the cycle ... [more]

Still finishing work to be done on Old Dumbarton Road, and not looking likely to be finished in time for the COP26 diversion route coming this way. UPDATE: The raised crossing has now been installed. See #175266.

The lack of a connection from James Watt Street to the riverside NCN75 path and the Tradeston Bridge (visible background left) continues to make this a difficult place to cycle. A gap through the kerb and railing on the far side of the junc ... [more]

The footbridge over Springburn Road is accessed from a car park at the end of Carbisdale Street, but there are some steps to climb. These could easily be ramped so this route is properly accessible. The footbridge itself is step-free, havin ... [more]

The road closure on Denmark Street does not permit through cycling, even though Hawthorn Street now has protected cycle lanes. Access for pedestrians only.

The ramp seen in #172741 leads users over a kerb when joining the Garscube Road cycleway.

The tie-in between the bottom of the new ramp down from the Forth and Clyde Canal to Garscube Road is poor. A kerb blocks the entrance to the ramp from Firhill Road and a ramp has been provided facing Firhill Road but this appears to be for ... [more]

There is a lack of a dropped kerb to allow access to the canal towpath at the end of the car park at Firhill. A temporary ramp has been provided, but this is possibly related to the construction work on the bridge to the Claypits nature res ... [more]

The crossings at the Old Dumbarton Road/Benalder Street junction still await raised carriageways, so these two had to bump the kerb in order to join the cycleway. UPDATE: This issue has now been resolved, see #175144.

The crossings on Old Dumbarton Road still do not have raised carriageways, so continue to hinder cycling across. However, the cycleway is still blocked further along.

No dropped kerb for access to the bridge across the railway and M80 motorway, connecting Robroyston Road to Winifred Street and the other half of Robroyston Road.

No dropped kerb at western access to motorway bridge in Winifred Street.

Despite the provision of a sign proudly pointing this way, there is still no dropped kerb to allow cyclists proper smooth access onto the carriageway of Springburn Way from the toucan crossing across Atlas Road. Not pictured, but while I ... [more]

A diagonal road filter retro-fitted with full cycle access.

A diagonal road filter, with full access for cycling. But no dropped kerbs for pedestrians to cross by.

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]

Fire Path in Balgonie Road, with no provision for through cycling.

The area around Crossloan Terrace and Harmony Square is permeable for pedestrians, but things could be made easier for cycling by installing a few dropped kerbs and connecting paths.

No provision for cycling through the road closure at the end of Clunie Road onto Corkerhill Road.

No provision for cycling through the road closure at the end of Ladybank Drive into Corkerhill Road, but since the kerb is low on this side, it can be bumped. Council policy says road closures should exempt cycles from the closure.

No provision for cycling through the road closure at the end of Moness Drive onto Corkerhill Road.

No provision for cycling through the closure of Victoria Park Drive South at Westland Drive. A dropped kerb and toucan crossings at the junction signals would probably suffice.

No direct cycle access from Claddens Street and Claddens Place to Balmore Road, just access for pedestrians.

Again I forgot to approach this gate on the footway, since there is no dropped kerb to assist with getting around it from the carriageway.

No provision for cycling through the road closure on Albert Drive.

No provision for cycling through the road closure in Aytoun Road.

The path from the allotments (see #170043) reaches the playing fields car park via this gate. The kerb could be lowered to make it more accessible.

No provision for cycling (other than the parking stands) and minimal provision for pedestrians at the busy Wallace Street junction with Dalintober Street. A dropped kerb crossing across three lanes of fast moving traffic heading for the mot ... [more]

Building work continues at Clyde Place. The cycle track approaching the Tradeston Bridge has been rebuilt. However, the position of the temporary railing directed me onto the new kerb which I wasn't expecting.

Fire Path at Skene Road. There is no dropped kerb on the Paisley Road West side.

The path connecting Cogan Street and Shawbridge Street has been laid out for pedestrian use only, but provides a route to and from the retail park that avoids Nether Auldhouse Road, so would be useful for cycling too. Although there is a ... [more]

A road closure in Saracen Street that does not permit through cycling, against Council Policy. In this case, the location of some dropped kerbs make it not too difficult to get around, but may be trickier with a non-standard cycle. Saracen ... [more]

A road closure in Barloch Street that does not permit through cycling.

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

The protected cycle lane in Royston Road appears to direct cyclists into the kerb without warning. Further along it became apparent that installation work was still on-going.

A gate right across the carriageway of Bogside Road, hindering cycling between Millerston and Robroyston. There is no dropped kerb on this side of the gate to enable it to be bypassed using either footway.

An asphalt ramp in place of a dropped kerb at the end of the Stobcross Street service road, probably as good as the location can hope for. The path leads to the Stobcross Bridge and NCN756.

The alignment of Abbotsford Place is continued in the form of a path, but is blocked by the parked car transporter on Cumberland Street. There is no formal crossing or even dropped kerbs.

Maybe not terribly useful for cycling, but the path that crosses Buccleuch Street on its way from West Graham Street to Hill Street and Renfrew Street does not have dropped kerbs at either side. There are also some cycle parking stands l ... [more]

With the cycle route on Cambridge Street in the background, still no provision for cycling to it from West Campbell Street.

The shared footway has been built along Spean Street without any thought for those that want to leave or join the route at intermediate junctions. Dropped kerbs are missing at various locations where such a turn may be required. And foot ... [more]

A 20mph zone and recommended route for cycling into Govan, but no dropped kerbs or raised crossing to help pedestrians to cross the road.

The northern part of Dunlop Street, looking towards Argyle Street pedestrian precinct. Cycle parking is provided next to the bollards. The two rising bollards are both in the lowered position.

The end of Miller Street looking towards Argyle Street pedestrian precinct. Argyle Street forms part of the Core Path Network, and as such cycling is supposed to be permitted. However, the signs for the precinct do not says this. One of ... [more]

South City Way at Bowman Street. In theory, it appears they expect cycles to be able to access the side road, but no dropped kerb has been provided to get from the cycle track onto the shared footway. And no provision for right turns or goi ... [more]

The South City Way cycle route on Victoria Road. Note how the right hand side of the cycle track gets narrower over the width of the road crossing. The markings should guide cyclists away from this area, where the kerb has upstand as the ra ... [more]

At most of the toucan crossings on the South City Way, the cycle track is flush with the footway adjacent to the crossing, but at this one, on this side only, the cycle track dips down below the kerb height, creating a step down, just where ... [more]

Craigiehall Street meets Govan Road, but no dropped kerb for access to the NCN7 cycle path.

Path between Paisley Road West and Blackburn Street, but no dropped kerb at the end.

Cycle parking and a public workstand at Cavendish Street, but no dropped kerb to leave the South City Way cycle track to get to them. There used to be a dropped kerb and painted cycle track linking Pollokshaws Road and Cavendish Street here ... [more]

The pop-up cycle lane leads straight into a build-out for a toucan crossing. No ramp has been provided and the railings remain in place, unlike the other side.

A railing and kerb obstructing the end of an otherwise quite cycleable path providing links through the quiet street network.

The signed diversion route is shut! Still no dropped kerb.

Access to the path to the Temple Walkway hindered by a kerb at the foot of a ramp.

No dropped kerb to join the Colleges Cycle Route at Scott Street.

Signage for the Springburn Quietway, but no dropped kerb to join the carriageway from the adjacent path. Not so easy to bump a kerb having come up a steep hill. A connection could be formed with Hawthorn Street here.

Diversion signage for the Stockingfield canal path closure at Wyndford Drive. Still no dropped kerb for the path to Contin Place.

It may not be finished, but a dropped kerb at Panmure Gate would be nice. The path now leads to the Claypit Local Nature Reserve.

The Langlands Road cycleway restarts as a designated strip of asphalt outside the shops. Despite the tyre marks on the kerb, there is no dropped kerb, and cycle access is from the narrow toucan crossing.

An abandoned section of street in Craigton at Barfillan Drive. This could be reworked into a cycle link connecting to the underpass through to Craigton Road and the Asda supermarket.

The path through Craigton, from Drymen Street to Barfillan Drive, interrupted by a Fire Path on Carsaig Drive. No dropped kerbs for crossing the road. This path provides access to the M8 underpass through to Craigton Road and the Asda super ... [more]

The dropped kerbs either side of the road closure on Morven Street don't align. I noticed this too late and came straight off of the high kerb. See #152275.

This looked like a good cycle exemption from a road closure, but the dropped kerbs on each side of the strip don't align. See #152276.

No dropped kerb at the end of MacLellan Street, at the path to Gower Street, although the kerb does get quite low nearer the fence.

Filtered permeability for pedestrians only in Dunard Street.

Filtered permeability for pedestrians only in Raglan Street.

A cyclist taking a short-cut away from the official crossing point on NCN 7, across the Riverside Museum approach road, despite having to bump the kerbs. There is a significant desire line evident in the grass.
