A Fire Path on Carsaig Drive, with no provision for cycling through (cycle access through road closures being Glasgow City Council policy).

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]

A Fire Path in Drymen Street, with no provision for cycling through (although just about physically possible with a standard bicycle).

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.

Although most of Kelvin Way remains shut to motor traffic, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery car park access has reopened. Planters have been used to ensure drivers take the turn into the car park, while allowing cycle access on the other half of ... [more]

Filtered permeability for pedestrians only in Dunard Street.

Filtered permeability for pedestrians only in Raglan Street.

Ashfield Street has been closed at Mansion Street, with concrete blocks across the road. There is just enough room between the blocks for a standard bicycle. This has been in place for a number of years now, and could be formalised into a p ... [more]

Broken bollards and obstructive car parking in Clouston Street, where cycling through is permitted in the Traffic Regulation Order. The 'Keep Clear' road markings could do with being renewed.

The barriers for the pop-up closure in Hanover Street are possible to cycle around on a standard bicycle, but awkward. New cycle parking has been installed too. It would make a lot of sense for this to become a permanent road closure, wi ... [more]

Associated with the new bus gate on George Square, Hanover Street has been made for 'Local Access Only'. Hanover Street is part of a north-south route for cycle access across the city centre.

I'm not sure some people understand what the red and white barrier indicates. George Square east shut to all vehicular traffic, including cycles, and possibly also applies to SUVs too. The car was driven out over the fancy stone footway ... [more]

Kelvin Way closed to motor traffic to allow more room for walking and cycling. Nothing to say that the road closure is exempting cycles, but people seem to have got the message regardless. Unusually, one of the parking bays extends into ... [more]

The popup closure of Kelvin Way to motor traffic has created space for walking and cycling.

The popup closure of Kelvin Way to motor traffic has created space for walking and cycling.

The popup closure to motor traffic of Kelvin Way has created space for walking and cycling, since Kelvingrove Park has been very busy. It is usually solid with parked cars and motor traffic passing through.

A popup road closure of Kelvin Way to motor traffic through Kelvingrove Park, to create space for walking and cycling instead.

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]

Electric bike hire stands at North Woodside Road. This area will be rearranged as part of the Connecting Woodside project, but at the moment any ebikes placed in the stands (as in #113230) would be obstructing the footway, and due to the lo ... [more]

A Fire Path closed to cycling on Wilton Street.

No cycle access from Bonawe Street onto Maryhill Road.

A rather disjointed looking cycle connection between Springbank Street and Garscube Road at Queen's Cross, but a connection nonetheless. And cycle parking.

The straight across access from the Berryknowes Road flats to Kingsland Drive (see also #112402) has been blocked off, including to cycles. The turning head is used for fly car parking.

The straight across access from Kingsland Drive into the road in front of the Berryknowes Road flats has been closed off, without exempting cycles.

A Fire Path road closure without any provision for cycling, even though the road behind the camera leads to the National Cycle Network.

Road closures either end of an abandoned section of road in Craigton. It may suit formal conversion into a park, and there is already a small park the other side of Carsaig Drive.

Cycle access at Barfillan Drive.

A road closure with just a dropped (fallen) kerb at the side to enable cycle access. Needs formalised with a proper exemption.

Cycle access at Maryland Drive maintained during roadworks.

Cycle only access at the west end of Dormanside Road.

A route sign for NCN7/75 on Linthaugh Road, and cycle only access on Dormanside Road.

Now that the cabins are away and the street has returned to normal, it appears that nothing was done to improve cycle permeability. There is an off-centre dropped kerb, but the 'No Entry' signs prohibit cycle movements across the road closu ... [more]

A fairly new cycle link on Hopehill Road, including some new green space created by shortening the former carriageway on this side of the closure.

Obstructive car and van parking on Striven Gardens.

I thought I could get through on the left at Striven Gardens, but see #108225.

An improvement at last at Doune Quadrant and Doune Gardens. Not perfect, but at least usable on a standard bike.

A gate across Monymusk Place, on the Drumchapel Way and Garscadden Way. The Garscadden Wood path starts on the right a short distance beyond the gate.

Filtered permeability in Sydenham Lane.

Temporary northbound closure of the North Hanover Street contraflow bus lane in connection with building works at Queen Street station. The official diversion is via North Frederick Street.

Cycle parking outside the sports centre in Yoker. It would be better with dropped kerbs to allow cycling through the road closure.

Permeability for pedestrians only. Although there is a sort of ramp up to the kerb on this side, on the other side it is just a high kerb (see #48702).

One road exits to Paisley Road West, the one opposite only has pedestrian access. A missed opportunity to improve cycle permeability for local journeys. 20mph zones only on side streets in Glasgow.

No access for cycles at road closure between Milnpark Gardens and Milnpark Street. Only pedestrians can go between the two streets. A gully installed the wrong way around creating an unnecessary hazard for cycles.

No access for cycles at road closure between Milnpark Street and Milnpark Gardens. Must enter via Paisley Road West along with all the other vehicular traffic.

The road closure in Ashley Street has a sort of hump to facilitate cycling, and some parking stands.

The cycle track linking Kingarth Street with Victoria Road, right at the bus stop.

There is a cycle track linking Kingarth Street with Victoria Road, but it's right at the bus stop. Hopefully this will be sorted by the South City Way works.

The cycle track between Bowman Street and Victoria Road goes around the bus shelter. Hopefully this will be improved by the South City Way works.

A cycle track with right angled corners links between Nithsdale Road and the Pollokshaws Road toucan crossing, around the bins.

A dropped kerb in the diagonal road closure on Reidvale Street and Sword Street. Not signed for cycling, but unlikely to cause a problem. Interestingly, the dropped kerb on the far side appears to be newer than on this side.

Road closure on Whitevale Street, with no exemption for cycles. A useful street for crossing Dennistoun.

FAO @Darkerside @GoBikeGlasgow @isersmalone New Balvicar St cycle gate. https://t.co/hsgCQah4xm [A site where car parking regularly blocked the cycle track entrance before e.g. #93805.]

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

Texting, engine running, not aware of those around her...

The cycle track linking Albert Road and Victoria Road has been blocked by a cycle hire station. Hopefully this will be sorted during the South City Way work.

Fern Lane is well surfaced (for a back lane) and has a single bollard to prevent through motor traffic, making it a useful alternative to the busy Crow Road..

Replacement for Checkpoint Shelley (see #26285).

I didn't think it was possible for this crossing to become more farcical, but the roadway has been closed, meaning the cycle route bumps kerbs for no purpose.

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 Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route crosses the zebra crossing across Auldhouse Road, then heads up Holeburn Road.

It's the widest zebra crossing I've ever seen, but why are the Belisha Beacons covered up?

The new bridge over the railway line at Bredisholm Road is not finished.

Getting from Sandy Road to NCN7 on Beith Street involves negotiating a maze of parked cars and kerbs.

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.

Glasgow really pushing the boat out on cycling infrastructure I see... https://t.co/xEq1oobYaI

It appears that the cycle route goes along the footway (which isn't signed as shared use) because no dropped kerbs or other arrangements have been made to get past the road closure in Waterside Street. The bollard has received stripy tape.

Newly installed dropped kerbs for cycling through to Galloway St, although this couple headed for the footway to avoid the reversing car in the turning head.

A short section of shared-use footway leading to the toucan crossing across Great Western Road, but no dropped kerb, unlike #87530.

The end of Lochburn Road, blocked with railway sleepers, but with a gap for bikes and pedestrians. The guy on a bike, visible in the background, was lost and looking for the canal path (on the embankment to the right).

Cycle track through closed off road between Claremont St and Argyle St.

New build out and dropped kerb on Claythorn Street #glasgowcycling https://t.co/qwbkEQV2py

New cycle-through in Springburn #permeability #glasgowcycling https://t.co/nFCKiO6g2G

A forlorn Fire Path in Hobart Street, with no exemption for cycling.

Now that this dropped kerb forms part of a cycle route, it might be time to trim back the lower branches on these trees.

A newly opened up road closure next to Hampden Stadium.

McPhater Street outside the Piping Centre is now blocked off with bollards.

Gap through Fire Path, but is it legal to cycle?

New cycle parking outside West Street subway station.

A dropped kerb has been provided at the end of Carlton Place.

No cycle access from Reid Street designed into the Clyde Gateway cycle track (see also #71303).

One of the four bus shelters plonked on the Clyde Gateway cycle track, with the cycle track crudely diverted around it. Watch out for that lamppost! Bus shelter also hides cyclists merging onto carriageway just beyond, where there is a left ... [more]

Close-up of #71301, showing bus shelter with cycle track diverted around it.

One of the four bus shelters plonked on the Clyde Gateway cycle track, with the cycle track crudely diverted around as an afterthought. Seen closer in #71302. No cycle access to blocked-off side street.

Coll Street not open to cycling at its junction with Darnick Street.

No physical impediment to cycling through the road closure over the bridge between Chestnut Street and Kippen Street, but the 'No Through Road' signs as in #71226 imply it isn't legal to do so.

Although there are 'No Through Road' signs without any exemption for cycles, there is no physical impediment to cycling over the railway bridge between Kippen Street and Chestnut Street.

No exemption from road closure for cycles at the end of Ashdene Street.

No exemption from road closure for cycles at the end of Ashdene Street.

The segregated cycle track on Scotland Street turns left into West Street. Anyone wanting to turn right into West Street has to turn sharply at the gap in the railings. Minimal cycle parking outside West Street subway station, and a van ... [more]

A van parked on the footway outside West Street subway startion, when there is plenty of space to park legally and for free on the road. The cycle route crosses the footway to join the segregated cycle track on the other side of the road ... [more]

Golly, wonder how that happened. Lawless sponging drivers burdening city taxpayers with crash repair costs yet again? http://t.co/7y4WkjAvLU

Newly installed dropped kerb at Langside Road creating quieter alternative to Victoria Road #quietway #glasgowcycling http://t.co/qvfQphWvZa

Although there are tiny drainage gaps at each side, this roadblock could easily be altered to properly allow though cycling along Earlspark Avenue. UPDATE June 2016: See #82489

Last month this was a nice flat entry to #Glasgow's main city park. No more. Why? #Cycling #dedesign. @copenhagenize http://t.co/z5PgYtlCFj

Not the prettiest of road closures on Hathaway Street, but possible to cycle through. [2017 Update: Also now possible to drive through since bollards have been knocked down.]
