@GoBikeGlasgow University Avenue this week : a @GlasgowCC cycle route @UofGlasgow what about the #vulnerableroaduser https://t.co/LdiKcc19HS

The end of the widened footway and transition onto an on-road painted cycle lane along Alderman Road.

The road markings on part of Alderman Road have been renewed, including a buffer strip between the parking bays and the cycle lane, but there's really no point in painting it less than the width of a car away from the kerb.

@morebikesplease @PeopleByresRoad @UofGsustain Here was two weeks ago. It's almost like there's a pattern...! Just shows the lack of consideration given to cycle infra that paint is even considered an option here. Anyone who uses the road r ... [more]

Paint is not protection @PeopleByresRoad @UofGsustain https://t.co/BF102sqsik

Precisely no-one ends their journey here, so why does the cycle lane end here?

Since my last visit painted cycle lanes have appeared on Hamilton Road west of Daldowie Road. Perhaps some of the extensive hatching could have been sacrificed in order to provide some segregation.

A mobile shop van parked on a footway buildout rather than using an empty parking space nearer the static shops. The bus stop is only served by the once-a-day service 709. This section of road used to have a cycle lane that followed t ... [more]

This is what happens when you resurface the car driving lane and not the cycle lane. A few years later and the surface has deteriorated so much that it can barely support the road markings.

The usual obstructive parking encroaching the door-zone cycle lane and pavement parking in Alderman Road. Maybe it's time for the Alderman Road scheme to be ripped up and a cycleway built next to the footway and car parking placed next to t ... [more]

The narrow cycle lane on Kelso Street bridge with footway car parking. No waiting restrictions so the assumption must be that the council approves of this.

A cycle lane designed for car parking. Let's not pretend this is designed for cycling.

A funders' sign for whatever aspect of this road layout they wish to trumpet about. Fastlink maybe or the cycle route? There isn't any sign to say whether or not the footway here is shared use. There was a sign at #99434 and there's one jus ... [more]

This is what a painted bike lane means @PeopleByresRoad @GlasgowCC @glendalegaelic @walkcyclevote St Andrew's Drive https://t.co/xSJ0xYx8OH

@EmmaHalliday1 @magnatom @GoBikeGlasgow Someone’s taking the message to the street. https://t.co/PaZshx9SdY

I don't suppose it matters that this van is parked in the Meiklewood Road cycle lane, since the cycle route turns right at the end of the road.

Junction potholes in the Meiklewood Road cycle lane.

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.

Cycle lane or not?

The painted cycle lane on Meiklewood Road goes around the bend, then vanishes for a bit.

The cycle lane on Meiklewood Road starts to move out from the kerb.

The cycle route is also a recommended route for lorry driving!

What is the point of advisory cycle lanes? Cumbernauld Rd today, both sides covered in parked cars @AnnaLangside @GlasgowCC @policescotland https://t.co/ze1547or7Z

Cycle lane + d/yellow lines at the foot of busy Gilmore Hill. Ideal parking place #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/xd0YZo2dOx

Space for buggies?

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.

The painted cycle lanes start just after the Broomhouse roundabout (M74 motorway junction) and then encounter a bus stop. A stepped ramp footbridge has been provided for pedestrians (including bus passengers) to cross the road.

The cycle lane shifts from the kerbside to the door-zone.

The narrow door-zone cycle lane swerves into the back of some parked cars. On the other side of the road, there's a car parked partly in the cycle lane, partly on the footway.

The Broomhouse cycle lane goes over a flattened build-out, then becomes a painted door-zone cycle lane.

I'm not sure what the purpose of this cycle lane is.

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.

An 'End of Cycle Route' sign approaching the Northgate Road roundabout, but now the cycle route continues along to the end of Wallacewell Road. I don't know why the traffic island encroaches into the cycle lane.

Cycle lane on Wallacewell Road.

Motorbike bypass for traffic boom at the University of Strathclyde. I guess bicycle users could use it too.

A painted cycle lane on North Hanover Street.

Someone using the central cycle lane on Cambridge Street.

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.)

More waste of paint by Glasgow City Council. The dual use of tin box storage may impress @Bob_Gunderson however... https://t.co/27FfCCrs0W

@ErnieMarples @magnatom @FMcAveety Presumably this "cycle lane" on Govan Rd is also included in km total #pointless https://t.co/ZbbBvLyXlq

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

A green strip across the junction with Salkeld Street, on Kilbirnie Street.

A green strip between parked vehicles on Kilbirnie Street. What could it be?

Painted cycle lanes on West Street. Perhaps the designer could look up the Traffic Signs Manual's road markings section to see how cycle lanes are meant to start.

The door-zone cycle lane in Albert Drive reverts to the kerbside.

New door-zone cycle lanes on West Street, including a zig-zag where the road changes width.

Spot the poorly designed & best ignored cycle lane.It's not very visible in real life either. #glasgowcycleinfraday t.co/DQcX0Oc4KQ

Faded out sign for Scotstoun Sports Centre on Kelso Street

Unrestricted car parking in cycle lanes on Corkerhill Road, outside sports centre with its own off-road car park (which was half empty at the time of photo).
