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 pavement parking on the shared-use footway on Dalsholm Road between the Garscube Estate path and the Kelvin Walkway, forcing riders onto the crumbling carriageway. There is a free car park at the top of the hill in the backgroun ... [more]

A poor quality shared-use footway on Halgreen Avenue. The other side of the road doesn't even have a footway, even though it is outside a school!

The start of the Lincoln Avenue cycle track, seen from the opposite direction to #101264.

The Cycle Quietway through Knightswood links the Orca cycle routes on Dyke Road and Lincoln Avenue without going along Alderman Road. The entrance to the Lincoln Avenue cycle track is rather cluttered and the cycle track itself can barel ... [more]

A Cycle Quietway has been signed through Knightswood, but doesn't use the newly widened and converted shared-use footway on Dyke Road.

Glasgow's joined up infra as it transitions from segregated to 'shared with pedestrians'. A pole and a parked van. Nice. https://t.co/I1zYIvWeLB

Cycling home with Flora along Pollokshaws Road. Traffic management for the shared path resurfacing better cycle provision than path itself! Buy hey, 6 lanes for motors obviously essential https://t.co/Whhbubr5SC

A solitary sign outside the chip shop declares that the footway on this section of James Street is shared-use. Leads to #33490.

A shared footway in Victoria Park Drive South, and signage for local destinations.

A shared footway in quiet Glendore Street, and I think the raised crossing in Medwyn Street in the foreground could be better aligned with the footway.

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.

A blind corner on the Dyke Road shared-use footway. See also https://twitter.com/CalumCook91/status/1022590507606831106

The new section of widened shared-use footway on Dyke Road, with a surface mounted sign.

Another professional dog walker using the shared-use footway for van parking.

The utilities work on Old Dumbarton Road fail to take any account of the cycle route which crosses from one footway to the other at this point.

Utilities work on the shared-use footway on Old Dumbarton Road (lasting several weeks) and no account taking of cycling.

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.

This just doesn't look good at all.

The cycleway suddenly turns from a shared-use footway behind the bus shelter and jumps into an on-road two-way cycle lane.

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.

A new cycle route under construction on Dyke Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. I imagine this isn't finished.

A new cycle route under construction on Dyke Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. A shared footway is going in here, and some education of the locals on the purpose of the shared footway appears to be necessary.

A new cycle route on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. A bus stop impasse? It appears the intent is that cyclists using this cycle lane should use the dropped kerb to join the footway and go around the back ... [more]

A new cycle route on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The view from the rear of the bus shelter in #99493.

A new cycle route on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. Quite why a proper bus stop bypass wasn't installed here I don't know. The bus shelter should be moved closer to the boarder and the segregated cycle tr ... [more]

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. I figure this probably isn't finished, but all the surface work appears to be done and only the lining remains to be finished. However, what alignmen ... [more]

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The purpose of the shared footway appears to be lost on the locals.

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The approach to the toucan crossing appears to be quite messy. I'm not sure why the white lines extend around each corner into the side roads. Maybe thi ... [more]

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. Looking back towards the toucan crossing in #99488.

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The route crosses sides here at this new toucan crossing. Maybe they'll put in some cycle parking for the shops before they are finished. Quite a sho ... [more]

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park.

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park.

The approach to the Clyde Tunnel cycle tunnel entrance from Holmfauld Place, with no dropped kerb for anyone that missed the dropped kerb in #99461.

When I turned into Holmfauld Place from Govan Road I noticed a white line on the footway. On investigation, it turns out the only way onto this shared cycleway is via the dropped kerb next to the black car.

The Summertown Road cycle route leaves the shared footway for the carriageway. Spot the clues.

And so we get to Summertown Road with a blind corner to start with. It sets the tone! See also #99174.

An obstacle course of poles and a random channel snaking its way across the surface. Not good enough!

Behind me is a shared-use footway sign. Across the junction and to the right is an "End of Cycle Route" sign. Are they related? Is this shared-use footway nothing to do with the one a little distance along Govan Road at #99434? But still th ... [more]

The footway across the far side of the junction is shared use, but the crossing is for pedestrians only. But the previous shared-use sign was back at #99434. Is this one continuous route or two unrelated shared-use footways? The drainage ... [more]

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]

The Govan Road shared-use footway crosses sides here, although there is only the presence of a toucan crossing as a clue. As always, the asphalt does not provide a direct route to the crossing, and as the wear on the grass shows people are ... [more]

The Govan Road toucan crossing leads straight into a wonky lamppost on Pacific Drive. The footways straights ahead and to the right are both shared use.

The shared-use footway on Govan Road crosses sides at the split toucan crossing at the Pacific Drive junction.

The Govan Road shared-use footway with the door-zone buffer strip in action.

Now that NCN7 has been moved onto the footway at Harvie Street there is a new blind corner problem. Also, why is there a priority crossing at Govan Road and no priority for crossing Brand Street?

The parallel cycle and zebra crossing has now been finished. Go left to turn right. It's also not clear what is and what is not shared use footway.

Glasgow's newest cycle project.

Professionally driven - NOT!

Vehicle parking on the footway appears to be a problem here. The shared use footway crosses to the other side of Summertown Road here, not that you'd notice.

A blind corner risk on the new Summertown Road shared footway. Note that the position of the dropped kerb discourages cycling away from the wall and towards the kerbline where there is better visibility.

Could the route alignment be any worse? How about a cycle crossing straight across to the new path (see #93791) at the Village development rather than the split toucan?

If you're expecting signs for NCN 7 or 75, they are visible on the right.

I guess the best way onto the Pacific Drive shared use footway is via the toucan crossing on the left. They don't appear to think anyone would approach from this direction.

The ramp up to New Rutherglen Road is signed as shared use, but doesn't connect well with the toucan crossing and the shared footway along Polmadie Road (see also #99165).

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]

When the Polmadie Bridge is rebuilt, the route to Glasgow Green will be straight ahead, across the split toucan crossing and down the ramp to Old Polmadie Road.

The cycle path towards the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital starts at the Meiklewood Road roundabout. It is also a dead end for pedestrians so surely this first section of path should be signed for cycles only.

The dropped kerb (see #29466) for accessing the M74 junction shared-use footway has inexplicably been removed! Despite the position of the sign on the left, the footway of New Rutherglen Road eastwards is not for cycling.

The footway of Old Polmadie Road has been designated as a shared-use footway, with hazards such as cars being reversed out of driveways, and the alternative is the road with rough surfaces through each junction. This will become the dire ... [more]

A rough surface at each junction, but the footway through this residential area has been designated shared-use, with all the hazards that might be expected, such as car drivers reversing cars out of driveways.

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

A shared use path has been provided alongside Moss Road, from Langcroft Road to the Shieldhall Roundabout where it just stops.

A 2018 Glasgow cycle infrastructure.

Now that the excellent new ramp next to Victoria Bridge has been built, the gates that so often blocked the former route of NCN75 (see #31366) seem to be left open much of the time.

The old 'Cyclists Dismount' sign has been joined by a shared use sign. Why doesn't the latter say "Be polite please"?

The new zebra and cycle parallel crossing on Govan Road has still not been completed! Note the parking layby is narrower than the vehicle parked in it.

The new zebra and cycle parallel crossing on Govan Road still hasn't been completed. Not even the shared footway surface has been finished!

This footway at Springburn Road appears to be part of the cycle route to Springburn, but there is a complete lack of shared-use signage. It also suffers from pavement car parking (see Streetview) on weekdays.

A bus stop bypass of sorts on the shared-use footway of Springburn Road.

A bus shelter obstructing the newly designated shared-use southern footway of Pacific Drive. The adjacent busway is for Fastlink buses only. Not even the approach taken in #97746 has been adopted here. No buffer strip either. So many inc ... [more]

The northern footway of Govan Road, between Harvie Street and Pacific Drive, has been rebuilt as shared use, including a marked buffer zone between it and the carriageway. However, the dropped kerb for anyone exiting Festival Park now has a ... [more]

The southern footway of Pacific Drive has now been declared as shared use. For no obvious reason, it does not have the marked "buffer zone" that Govan Road (see #97688), rebuilt at the same time, has. Note also the bus stops on the main ... [more]

A simple encapsulation of the contempt for people who walk or cycle; snow from roadway piled up at dropped kerb on shared use route. #DontBlockTheDrop https://t.co/Dfdk38HHNJ

Active travellers on foot and bike, your leafy shared use path of safety must be rendered useless cos the three lanes of important motorists have to be informed. @CalumCook91 @GoBikeGlasgow https://t.co/rMPWuWQsBb

Slow progress on the parallel cycle/zebra crossing on Govan Road.

Although the shared footway is wide, it is obstructed with a poster board and a large bin, plus drivers queue across the crossing with the bus station taxi access. Shortly after the crossing, the cycle route crosses to the narrower footway ... [more]

A raised crossing leading into Richmond Park.

The far end of Oatlands Square features a raised crossing, much neater than at the entrance.

Oatlands Square, with a sculpture and seating off to the side, leaving the path unobstructed.

The layout entering Oatlands Square. Lots of signs and posts, but an attractive path through the middle.

The Fastlink busway was built without any dropped kerbs outside the Festival Park gate, hindering cycle access between the Science Centre and Festival Park. The footway here is to be converted to shared use.

Not a dual carriageway, but two parallel two-way roads, the nearest of which is reserved for buses only. The footway on this side is to be converted (or just redesignated?) for shared use.

The northern footway of Govan Road is being rebuilt for shared use.

The northern footway of Govan Road being rebuilt for shared use, with some low branches coming over the wall from the park.

Still no sign as to whether this widened footway is shared use or not, now that the one-way carriageway is unusable for cycling in the other direction. However, there is this parking sign where no parking is allowed.

Literally nowhere else to park! (*not)

Would be a good walking or cycling path. Shared use next to massive #Holyrood school though? #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/uFQ47EK5uv

Roadworks on the shared-use footway on Moss Road.

What starts off like a positive permission to cycle ends up more like an ultimatum!

Barriers across the cycle path to Silverburn, to stop people going straight out onto the road where drivers can't even avoid hitting the signs. Again, no traffic control to help people cross the road, just a traffic island.

It's not easy to cross this busy crossing of the Silverburn Shopping Centre entrance road, but there's only a traffic island to help.

There appears to be a gap in the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route at this bus stop in Barrhead Road.

The first sign that this is a shared-use footway.

There is an 'End of Cycle Route' sign, but the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route continues to the right. It's the route from Haggs Road that's ending.

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

This ramp forms part of NCN75 and has been closed for a few weeks. See #88472.

As if the Broomielaw shared-use footway wasn't bad enough in its own right, there is vertical upstand on the kerb at this private car park entrance.
