@TrothBen @CycleInfraDay @Fenmonkey @bencooper Here is my trike on the bridge. Not much room for anyone coming the other way. https://t.co/19Afh1W4Gc

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]

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.

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.

The path connecting the Forth & Clyde Canal to Netherton Road next to the David Lloyd centre is in a very poor condition, not just a poor and narrow surface but quite overgrown too.

A very narrow and bumpy path that could be improved to connect Kirklee with Kelvindale Road and the Kelvin Walkway across the river.

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.

The route to the canal is signed along the narrow path to the left, to bypass the roundabout.

This is the route pedestrians and wheelchair users are directed along from Drumchapel station (see #100504), a narrow path with a poor inclined surface. Would two wheelchair users be able to pass easily? The far end is shown at #100508.

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.

I guess they thought this old piece of path would be acceptable within this huge motorway building project. If someone ever did shut this gate properly and someone in a wheelchair needed to open it, it would be extremely difficult to do ... [more]

The path beneath the A8(M), Scotland's shortest motorway, has now been completed. I can't help but think they could have been more generous on the width. Not that lots of people will use it, but passing a couple of people walking a dog will ... [more]

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.

The footway in the foreground was widened when it was converted to shared use (although the lampposts were left where they were), but beyond the toucan crossing the section to the shared use ramp to Old Polmadie Road has been left at its or ... [more]

The parking layby is again too narrow for ordinary cars to be reliably parked within, so eroding the buffer zone that is meant to contain door openings.

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]

A variable width newly nominated shared-use footway alongside the Fastlink busway. Also in the picture, cycle parking for the Village development.

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]

An extremely narrow section of path along the canal below the Ruchill St bridge. Shameful that something so bad could have been built in modern times!

The canal path goes under a modern road bridge on a very narrow section of path (see #92011), but it is possible to bypass it by going up the ramp to Ruchill St and crossing to rejoin the canal path beyond the bridge.

A pathetic worn-out narrow painted door-zone cycle lane in Kilmarnock Road from the council that won the "Achievements in Cycling" award at the 2017 Scottish Transport Awards.

Still no progress on getting this barrier removed. See #44115.

Shared footway partially blocked on corner of Bunhouse Road and Old Dumbarton Road.

Contraflow cycling on the road to Yorkhill Hospital. Not much room for passing other than vacant car parking spaces, but downhill for an easy restart.

The narrow path between the A89 and Bargeddie Parish Church gets wider for a bit, but much of the benefit is negated by the vegetation. However, it probably copes fine with the present level of use.

The path between the A89 and Bargeddie Parish Church.

This has apparently been left like this for several weeks! No warning signs for anyone approaching from the riverside.

The route sign directs cyclists to the flight of steps under the bridge, when they need to use the ramp up to street level. However, the ramp to street level has been partially dismantled, and has been left like this for a few weeks (see al ... [more]

A terrible layout for the Broomielaw shared-use footway at the Fastlink busway. See also #88469.

A narrow blind corner on the Broomielaw shared-use footway, with some upstand for anyone approaching from a position where they can see at least some way around the corner.

No improvement to the narrow traffic island at the St Rollox Brae junction.

The application for Sustrans Community Links funding mentioned the Springburn Expressway having "a very wide (up to 6 metres) footpath". However, in places it is quite narrow, and at this bus shelter in particular there is plenty of room to ... [more]

The sign in #86811 reckons this path is wheelchair accessible. It was difficult enough steering a bike through the narrow gap.

Path from houses at Aultbea Street, and muddy path down from the main road at Castlebay Street.

It would have been nice if this ramp had been widened a bit.

Someone using the central cycle lane on Cambridge Street.

What in the name of all that is good is this absolute travesty of cycle infra? It's narrower than my handlebars! https://t.co/NkrqTPyWYb

New stepped cycleway on George V bridge. Far too narrow. Motorists passing far too close. Hellish. https://t.co/C2DajJpBYr

Infra stops functioning when 4+ cyclists (never mind pedestrians) use it at once. Built to fail. https://t.co/SKX6GH02q2 [See also #80717]

Cycled 18 miles home #TeamGlasgow No room to pass here, even without pedestrians @GlasgowCC is #lettingtheteamdown https://t.co/XJmpyAGInk

More miles for #TeamGlasgow. That painted lane looks so safe (NOT). @GlasgowCC is #lettingtheteamdown https://t.co/YfcNzTVwRc

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

A narrow but useable segregated cycle track past a school in Easterhouse. Unfortunately, a traffic island just beyond the far end of the cycle track forces motor traffic in towards the kerb, creating conflict.

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 new bus shelter in the way of the Clyde Gateway cycle track, which has been crudely diverted around the side, without any footway widening. Madness!

The Clyde Gateway cycle track has been crudely diverted around the new bus shelter, but no extra land has been taken to make the footway any wider to compensate. The diverted markings have even been changed since they didn't leave any room ... [more]

'Allo 'allo 'allo, what do we have 'ere then? An inappropriately positioned bus shelter obstructing the cycle track, and no widening of the footway to compensate.

A very narrow section of Clyde Gateway cycle track past the back of a bus shelter, and poor visibility of motor traffic for merge onto carriageway where there is a left-hook risk at the Dunn Street multi-lane junction.

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

Split toucan crossing between two narrow footways (see also #70772). Are people really meant to cycle on this? The only other way to Vermont Street is on the busy carriageway, with the return being via the motorway junction roundabout. Moto ... [more]

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.

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

The gap in the wall for the Kelvin Walkway is just too narrow. The Kelvin Walkway crosses the busy A879 Balmore Road here, with poor sightlines between two bends.

The improved section of path doesn't even stretch as far as the bridge. The path beyond here is even worse!

Narrow cycle lane in University Avenue. Location: Dowanhill, Glasgow (Scotland, United Kingdom)

@GoBikeGlasgow @GlasgowCC repainting lines and "bike lanes" on Highburgh Road. Car space too narrow, even for a mini! http://t.co/z8q3z3cGmB

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

Some @bollocksinfra from @GlasgowCC on Hyndland road. Tiny cycle lane with grate to trap wheels. Rest is in door-zone http://t.co/VD7CqQd0ac

@carsickglasgow @bollocksinfra @GlasgowCC in the, ahem, shared use path being narrowed by barriers http://t.co/Nt8JNX7K5l

@magnatom @carsickglasgow thanks road guys, honestly, there's bags of room. http://t.co/fYPxtO450y

A terribly narrow piece of shared use footway on Broomielaw.

The Fastlink dedicated bus road will not permit cycling when it finally opens, so cyclists will be forced to mix with pedestrians on the NCN 75 riverside path or with motor vehicles on the adjacent road. NCN 756 crosses here on a 3-stage ... [more]

Someone in Glasgow City Council keeps designing exceedingly poor cycle infrastructure such as this cramped caged traffic island on a split toucan crossing at the Clyde Arc bridge.

This stupid advertising board is still blocking this pathetic shared-use footway!

Walking three-abreast blocks the full width of the shared cycleway/footway.

A lamppost positioned in the worst place possible, in the middle of an already narrow path at a blind corner.

The shared-use footway alongside the Springburn Expressway

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

This road layout was completed from a blank canvas (the whole of the Oatlands housing scheme east of this point was demolished) and yet the road planners still didn't leave enough space for their planned "cycle facility" past one of the few ... [more]

Anything goes on the Pollokshaws Road shared-use footway. A speed camera blocking one half of the available space.

Narrow shared-use footway along Haggs Road, shared with bins and street furniture.

The shared-use footway continues from Dumbreck Road into Haggs Road, with a narrow section between a railing and a hedge. No links to the surrounding residential areas.

One of the better sections of shared-use footway alongside Dumbreck Road. Not very wide, and with no separation from the main carriageway (seen somewhat off-peak). Other sections are narrower, with poor visibility on inside curves.

Temporary NCN75 diversion around the section of Anderston Quay wall that collapsed, somewhat narrow and cobbled at this end (see also #47843 and #47844) UPDATE: A thin strip of tarmac has now been laid alongside the cobbles and the fence ... [more]

Gap next to gate is awkward to get bikes through on useful route between Bargeddie and Glasgow which bypasses the Baillieston Interchange motorway junction

Ridiculous narrow shared-use footway/cycleway on dead-end Camlachie Street, that isn't even continuous!

Narrow shared-use footway on Cowcaddens Road that forms part of Colleges Cycle Route

Shockingly narrow shared-use footway alongside 50mph dual carriageway section of Maryhill Road. No effort has been taken to convert this from a standard footway. There is a better cycle route through the science park, running parallel to th ... [more]

Narrow path linking to riverside promenade near Braehead Shopping Centre - quite a contrast from #30585

Do people still build paths this narrow? New path in Richmond Park, Glasgow, that could easily have been made suitable for cycling.

Narrow cycle lane on Moss Road
