Still no raised crossing or dropped kerb to join the Benalder Street cycle track, which otherwise appears nearly complete, apart from the lamppost.

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.

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.

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.

The dropped kerb on the right (see #46778) is blocked by van parking, and the stopped up section of road is also covered with indiscriminate parking.

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.

Morven Street is a 'No Through Road except cycles' but has no access from the westbound side of Paisley Road West.

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.

Despite the council providing cycle signage at the canal access path at Campbell Street, the nearest dropped kerb is someone's driveway.

No dropped kerb at Windsor Street/Windsor Terrace to get through to North Woodside Road at the Lidl supermarket.

A kerb to bump on the way from the Forth & Clyde Canal path access to the toucan crossing across Maryhill Road and path up towards Duncruin Street.

No dropped kerb at the start of a path connecting Collina Street near new housing development to the Forth & Clyde Canal and Maryhill Road. The path is in poor condition and has some shallow steps in it too.

Nice motor-traffic free environment in rebuilt Argyle Street alignment in Anderston, but awkward to get into with a bike due to no dropped kerbs at either end. Outdoor bike parking has been provided at each entrance for residents.

Nice motor-traffic free environment in rebuilt Argyle Street alignment in Anderston, but awkward to get into with a bike due to no dropped kerbs at either end. Outdoor bike parking has been provided at each entrance for residents.

Another view of the contraflow cycle lane on Argyle Street. The cycle lanes could easily have been painted with a smoother transition in road position. See also #139322.

The contraflow cycle lane on Argyle Street has an abrupt change of direction, following the kerb. See also #139324.

A contraflow cycle lane has been created on Argyle Street, but it is full of broken asphalt and dislodged stonework, and is nowhere near a smooth ride. With on-coming vehicles now in the centre of the carriageway (as in #139536), less oppor ... [more]

No dropped kerb and a pavement parking problem at the new end of the path from Jessie Street to Prospecthill Circus.

The footbridge at the end of Dolphin Road has fairly steep ramps, but also has quite a bit of upstand on the kerbs on each side.

No dropped kerb at this entrance to Maxwell Park. It would suit a raised crossing across to the station entrance opposite.

No dropped kerb at the end of the Kelvin Walkway access path at Lochgilp Street, although there is one slightly further on at the steps.

A connection from Bantaskin Street to Cowal Road, although there is no formal crossing across the latter, and not even a dropped kerb there. Should the awkward bit of the Kelvin Walkway (at #100566) ever be rebuilt, this will be the diversi ... [more]

With the dropped kerb on the right, the cycle track connecting North Woodside Road to Hopehill Road/Maryhill Road junction is blocked by the hire bike. Weaving around the hire bike thus becomes necessary, when having the dropped kerb in the ... [more]

No safe crossing of the A752 at Commonhead Road, on the Seven Lochs Trail, and not even a dropped kerb! Just a promise of a future bridge across the M73 and A752, if it gets funding.

The Seven Lochs Trail crosses the A752 and goes into Drumpellier Country Park. But there's not even a dropped kerb to help with the crossing of this busy A road at Commonhead Road.

No cycle access from Bonawe Street onto Maryhill Road.

The positions of the dropped kerbs at the Lochend Road crossing is poor, and could easily be rectified. Alternatively, a raised crossing could be installed, which would have the added benefit of slowing drivers coming down the hill into Eas ... [more]

The road crossing at Lochend Road could be better.

A poor transition between path and road at Balcurvie Road.

No dropped kerb at the turn from Auchinlea Road onto the Seven Lochs Trail. The footway is not shared-use. Given the busy traffic around the entrance to the Fort shopping centre, it may be worth considering upgrading this footway, but inclu ... [more]

Still no dropped kerb at Pinkston Road to join the path between the M8 motorway and the former Sighthill Park. The new location for the Sighthill standing stones can be seen to the right.

Whoever designed this does not cycle! The cycle lane being used as a car park goes is obstructed by a kerb at the toucan crossing over to Morrison's supermarket and retail park.

No dropped kerb to get directly from the retail park to the Saughs Avenue toucan crossing.
