Not again! A driver parking in the cycle lane on University Avenue, and across part of the junction mouth of Kelvin Way.

The University Avenue mandatory cycle lane chock-a-block with parked cars, and pavement parking on the opposite side where there is no cycle lane.

The mandatory cycle lane in University Avenue blocked by a lorry driver with his lorry, forcing a rider off her bike.

Another 'Cycles only' sign on University Avenue. The solid line of the mandatory cycle lane extends over part of the junction too.

Traffic sign violations.

Cycle lane markings have appeared. Sign still wrong.

Cars parked in what little cycle lane there is in Byres Road.

'Cycles only' on University Avenue, apparently.

No room for protected cycle lanes, they said.

An off-side cycle lane on Hopehill Road. I'm not sure what this is for.

More car parking in the University Avenue cycle lanes, across the Kelvin Way access.

Not a care in the world about any inconvenience their parking may cause.

Freshly painted Advance Stop Lines at Anderston Cross, but none at the second stop lines under the motorway bridge.

Bike symbol painted the wrong way around on Tweedsmuir Road, on Cardonald Quietway.

Van parking in the cycle lane on Crow Road at Broomhill Cross. Location: Broomhill, Glasgow (Scotland, United Kingdom)

The area under the M8 motorway at Anderston Cross is being painted fancy colours a couple of months before the COP26 conference hits town. The area outside the station frequently resembles a car park.

The original layout of the cycle lane in Alderman Road, including what appears to be an item of traffic calming that drivers may or may not be expected to drive around. This layout did not last. [Scanned image from late 1990s.]

Start of repainted narrow door-zone cycle lane in Whitefield Road.

Narrow door-zone cycle lane repainted.

The partly protected cycle lane in Provanmill Road is slightly wider than the advisory cycle lane it replaced. The pedestrian crossing is not working.

The cycle lane down one side of Langdale Street is being used for car parking. The street can get quite busy with through traffic.

The cycle lane down one side of Langdale Street is being used for car parking. All the protection has been removed.

Langdale Street viewed from the Royston Road/Robroyston Road junction. The cycle lane down one side is being used for car parking.

Accumulated mud in the faded cycle lane in Broomfield Road.

A faded cycle lane on Broomfield Road, at a pinch-point. It also leads into a chain of potholes at the bus stop.

The cycle lanes on Broomfield Road are almost invisible now.

Is it a cycle lane?

Start of the faded door-zone cycle lane in Maxwell Drive. The cycle lane in the opposite direction has already expired by this point.

Parking on the footway, driving in the hatching. The rules of the road have broken down. Just beyond the van is a dropped kerb, before the traffic signals, that allows access to the footway in order to use the toucan crossing across to t ... [more]

Door-zone cycle lanes on Maxwell Drive.

Door-zone cycle lanes on Maxwell Drive.

Cycling in the cycle lane on Gorbals Street. The taxi driver driving behind the bus then barged through this group of four cyclists to park in the layby. The permanent cycle provision for this road can't come soon enough!

Car parking on the footway cycle lane in Maxwell Drive. The cycle lane leads to a toucan crossing across St Andrew's Drive and is two-way.

The cyclist avoids the pavement cycle lane that the driver up ahead is in the process of parking in.

The speed humps are freshly painted, but the cycle lane is looking rather faded.

A pop-up painted cycle lane has appeared on George V Bridge, wider than the narrow stepped lane to its left, but still inside of a left turn motor vehicle lane, so probably best to continue moving out if not turning left.

Very little remains of the Langdale Street pop-up cycle lane. Just a painted lane now, with car parking and some inside lane driving occurring too. See https://www.glasgowtimes.co.uk/news/18478995.glasgow-north-cycling-activists-create-p ... [more]

The on-road option for cycling from Aikenhead Road onto Polmadie Road. A central cycle lane has been provided between the left-turn filter lane and the ahead lane for motor traffic.

Car parking in the Langlands Road cycle lane and footway. No waiting restrictions.

Cycle lanes being used for car parking, without any waiting restrictions. Designed for failure.

Is it a mandatory cycle lane? If so, why is it marked as a straight on and left turn lane? The protection has ended. NCN75 is on the shared footway alongside.

The "protection" on this protected cycle lane is pretty minimal. Compare with #117893. Still some people using it in the opposite direction though, showing there's demand for a protected two-way facility.

This is meant to be a protected cycle lane, but there is no protection on this section, just paint!

@GlasgowCC Is this still a bike lane? Faded paint, totally unenforced, drivers treating it with contempt. St Andrew's Road. @GoBikeGlasgow https://t.co/1K0CTIfjrS

A short section of cycle lane on Seaward Street, but not really any use for crossing at the toucan crossing.

The new road layout on University Avenue does not meet with the approval of at least one cyclist (who stays on the footway).

The Alderman Road cycle lane ends by veering into a signed but not marked shared footpath across to Kelso Street.

Deteriorating road surface beyond the mini-roundabout on Alderman Road. The cycle lane appears to be in the poorest of condition compared to the surrounding road surface.

Deteriorating road surface on much of the Alderman Road cycle lanes. The opportunity could be used to swap the parking and cycle lanes about, which would result in less wear and tear on the cycle lane in future.

Quality HGV parking in the cycle lane at Tesco!

@GlasgowCC @SustransScot That's great! But why the parking spots just down the road before the British Linen Building? They have not been there before, there is no need and it generates a dangerous bottleneck between opening car doors on th ... [more]

The advisory cycle lane in University Avenue changes to a mandatory cycle lane, but the double yellow lines stop.

A poor surface in the University Avenue cycle lane, and incursion by a car driver.

Glasgow cyclists, be very wary of the new cycle path at Mosspark Boulevard & Drumbrek Road, The removal of cones means cars are treating it as a left hand car lane. You could get hit by oncoming traffic https://t.co/HdESW6m0eK

We asked for #SpaceForPeople, but we didn’t ask for skinny lanes, no segregation, and real life experience of the surface of the moon! We can do better! ☹️ https://t.co/dHxTevjhpx [See also #139536]

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]

Hi @GlasgowCC any chance we can have some enforcement on the corkerhill road cycle path. @UrbanistTOC do you know any others I could tag in this? https://t.co/bnVPgmHFqj

A short length of painted cycle lane appears next to the cycle lane sign. The previous cycle lane sign didn't have any cycle lane.

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.

Aside from the cars parked in the cycle lane, the lane is approached through hatching which normally means don't drive or cycle here except in an emergency.

The cycle lanes have pretty much vanished from Robroyston Gate.

The cycle lanes painted when the business park was first built have all but disappeared from the road. Not that they made much sense.

Cycle lanes in Dalmellington Road, but used for car parking.

Footway cycling on Langlands Road where the painted cycle lanes are blocked by parked cars.

Car parking in the Langlands Road painted cycle lanes, and an old 'No Cycling' sign at this end of the path to Mallaig Road.

Unprotected painted cycle lanes on Clarence Drive, with parking on one side of the road.

@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.
