The Partick Bus Station rebuild continues, but at least there will be a direct route onto the carriageway at Merkland Street once it's finished. The stone bases for the bus shelters were apparently imported all the way from Portugal! ... [more]

One route sign has two poles and is pointing the right way, but one of the signs sharing lamppost is pointing the wrong way. Plus a rather messy path junction.

Route signs pointing in various directions, facing people coming from the Forth & Clyde Canal at Blairdardie. Wheelchair users appear to have been forgotten about in the signs pointing to the unnamed railway station (Drumchapel).

A major road crossing, with the direct route across the dual carriageway blocked by a barrier at the far side and no dropped kerb, and only a pedestrian crossing to the left to get across to the residential roads on the far side.

Linking the two halves of Crow Road for cycling would provide a local alternative to the hostile A739 dual carriageway, but motorists' needs appear to come first.

It appears that the roadway at Partick Bus Station is being fenced off and the first opportunity anyone cycling past the entrance to Partick station will have to access the roadway in Merkland Street will be at the crossing to the right (se ... [more]

The Partick Bus Station rebuilding project continues. It looks as if the bus station roadway is being fenced and the crossing in the foreground of this photo will be the first point that cyclists coming past Partick station entrance can acc ... [more]

I think the railings here are to keep the doorways free from blockage by car parking, rather than provide convenient cycle parking for the flats. Plenty of designated car spaces and garages, but still they are parked just anywhere.

The cycleway from the Clyde Tunnel has been blocked by a damaged guardrail. The CCTV coverage does not appear to have led to a speedy repair. The cube sign gives directions that are different from the green sign below it.

Building works at Partick Bus Station have meant that the point where cyclists join Merkland St carriageway has now been closed, and cyclists are forced to share a narrow footway already obstructed by (unrelated) scaffolding. However, t ... [more]

The Doune Quadrant/Doune Gardens problem is still very much there.

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 when you are jealous of the railings the school have and want some to help protect your bike lane. https://t.co/BmLaHleRD1

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 Striven Gardens, west end. Unique filtering. Also unique in that it isn't blocked by a parked car like normal. https://t.co/ZTSmnVoTHF

The north end of Brock Road has the same problem as the Brock Burn path, but is slightly nearer to the zebra crossing at the health centre.

The nearest proper pedestrian crossing to the end of the Brock Burn path is at the far side of the bus station, with continuous pedestrian guard railing all the way there.

The nearest end of the pedestrian guard railing is around the corner from the end of the Brock Burn path, where there is a traffic island crossing point.

The north end of the Brock Burn path is blocked by about 150m of continuous pedestrian guard rail. There needs to be a pedestrian crossing here to make it a viable route to the Silverburn Shopping Centre. See also #90961 and #90962.

I only found this on my second attempt at looking for it. "Glasgow's first community public bike pump", on Argyle Street in Sandyford. http://www.glasgowlive.co.uk/news/glasgow-news/glasgows-first-public-bike-pump-13193687

A new toucan crossing on Beith Street for the new Lidl store, but needlessly difficult to get to from Anderson Street due to its position and all the clutter, including kerbs, in the way.

Uncontrolled pedestrian crossing next to the Forge Retail Park's service access (see #89948) and on the left the path through Bellgrove.

A barrier across end of path through Bellgrove. After a small break at a car park serving the flats here, this path continues right the way across to Bellgrove Street. There is an uncontrolled crossing a short distance to the right, and a s ... [more]

Barriers each side of the Clyde Gateway toucan crossing still present an obstacle to anyone using Baltic Street as a through route on a bike.

Lots of barriers outside Dalmarnock Station result in people cycling on the footway in order to get to the fancy path, such as is seen in #89937.

The Paisley Road protected cycletrack merges into a shared footway around the corner. The diagonal crossing is aligned for those going up and down West St, but has a signal facing anyone coming from Paisley Road, just in case someone wants ... [more]

Some more cycle stands are needed in Hope Street to supplement the ones next to Central Station.

The Baltic Street alignment has been obstructed with railings both sides at the Clyde Gateway toucan crossing. This side doesn't even have a dropped kerb! See also #87992.

The way between Baltic St and the Clyde Gateway toucan crossing has been obstructed both sides with a railing. See also #87993.

I don't think anyone has been fined for driving through this bus gate yet!

No crossing to get to the riverside or NCN75 from James Watt St, and way blocked by a continuous railing. At the same time, Glasgow City Council is progressing with plans to implement a contraflow cycle facility in Blythswood St that wou ... [more]

I can't help thinking that this sharp corner could somehow have been avoided.

Officially approved advertising?

@GlasgowCC Insufficient bike parking in #Shawlands - people shouldn't have to lock bikes to pedestrian barriers https://t.co/vsFWlASExI

New guardrail already destroyed by a lawless speeding driver. http://t.co/VbI8GV6RoP

Turning off of Golspie Street onto the Langlands Road cycle track. Narrow crossing. Location: Govan, Glasgow (Scotland, United Kingdom)

The 3-stage toucan crossing at Anderston Quay that NCN 756 crosses (see also #60133)

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.

Partially fenced off subsidence on path constructed under Safer Routes to Schools programme. The newer fencing has been painted black. There is cracking in the asphalt most of the way down this path.

The Auldhouse Road exit from Greenbank Park is blocked by a railing and there is no dropped kerb, although the road closure opposite on Holeburn Road has a cycle gap.

Needlessly narrow shared-use footway on Haggs Road at side road crossing. The pedestrian guard rails have all been covered with banners, meaning small children will be completely hidden from the view of drivers. The vertical bars in the low ... [more]

Damaged bikes left out on street in residential area

Bikes locked to railings due to lack of suitable storage space in flats (see also #51224)

Abandoned bike frame, rusty cycle stand, fly-tipping and general decay bringing the area down, and deterring cyclists from using stands.

No cycle parking stands provided at café in Park Road.

One of the measures done in Glasgow for the cycle racing. Railings removed and ramp down from kerb formed at exit from Kelvingrove Park. http://instagram.com/p/a6KcyiqBpl/ shows it in use.

Kissing gate and steps with awkward ramp at one side. I approached from the wrong side to use the ramp, and the central railing stopped me changing sides without backtracking. This is the Acre Drive entrance to Maryhill Park, and a conne ... [more]

No direct access from footbridge ramp to park, forcing a detour out onto the street and back

Large car park but no cycle parking at ASDA Parkhead, so bikes get locked to this railing

No access to cycle track on so-called East End Regeneration Route from adjacent stopped-up streets
