Looking towards #173895, this is where the Loch Lomond Railway Path used to start. Now the gap in the underpass wall has been filled in and the former railway embankment demolished, so NCN7 crosses Castlebank Street using this toucan crossi ... [more]

The northern footway of Castlebank Street doesn't last long, and like South Street, has large gaps in it. A traffic island is the only aid for crossing. NCN7 shares the footway on the right with pedestrians. The site on the left is being ... [more]

The junction of Sawmill Road and South Street. NCN7 is visible on the footway to the right.

The Sawmill Road junction used to have the cycle path on a former railway bridge over the top of the road, but now that has been demolished, the cycle route is on the South Street shared footway to the right. The footway on this side res ... [more]

The northern footway on South Street comes to another break, and again there is a desire line worn in the grass. NCN7 is on the opposite shared footway. Meanwhile, a line of car showroom flags marks the course of the demolished former ra ... [more]

The resumption of the South Street footway at Ferryden Street was brief, and it comes to an end again after the car showroom built on the course of the cycle path. The path used to cross Harmsworth Street here on a former railway bridge. ... [more]

South Street, with worn desire line in the grass verge where there is a missing footway, a speed camera that has been out of use for a long time, a traffic counter, and NCN7 on the footway across the road.

South Street carries quite a lot of industrial traffic, due to the area it is in. So the cycle route (on the footway on the right) is so unattractive to these two cyclists that they prefer this road to the shared footway cycle route. The ... [more]

The toucan crossing is used to follow the cycle route which continues on the footway of the other side of South Street, but there is a clear desire line for staying on this side. There is a short break before the footway resumes at Ferryden ... [more]

Shared footway on Smith Street and ramp into car park, and access to NCN7 in the background.

The diagonal cycle crossing from Bunhouse Road to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery still awaits commissioning.

The shared footway in Bunhouse Road has been covered in beige surfacing, except for a gap just beyond the crossing. The main pedestrian egress from the car park comes up the ramp on the left.

Still finishing work to be done on the rebuilt Bunhouse Road shared footway, and still no indication of priorities at the car park entrance.

Still finishing work to be done on the rebuilt Bunhouse Road shared foootway, and the cycle route sign is pointing the wrong way, and least for Loch Lomond.

Ah, perfect stop for a lunch break… 🙄 https://t.co/sTKaIu3BBh

Another view of #172734, showing the narrow footway between the toucan crossing and the boundary fence.

Not a promising look for the Sighthill "cycling village". A toucan crossing with not even a bike's length between the kerb and the fence at the back of the footway. See also #172813.

The shared footway on Bunhouse Road has been rebuilt, but has not had its dividing line reinstated. The zebra crossing has a random section of tactile paving nearby with no obvious purpose.

The pop-up cycle lane resumes, but only once the road happens to get wider. I bumped the kerb to allow the couple walking towards me to avoid walking single file. A decent permanent installation would not look like this.

The line narrowing the shared footway over the motorway bridge, and a scooter user approaching.

The shared footway over the motorway bridge has a solid line marking near the railing. Is this because the railing is too low for a shared use footway/cycleway to be there?

The pop-up two-way cycleway, which only just began back at the Provanmill Road junction, ends, and gestures for cyclists to go onto the footway at the motorway bridge.

A couple of pop-up peak-hour bus lanes have been provided on the Springburn Road expressway. The shape of the start of the bus lane has already been altered.

A couple of pop-up peak-hour bus lanes have been provided on the Springburn Road expressway. Nothing has been done to improve the narrow shared-use footway.

A Nextbike hire station has been added to Shields Road at the start of the Southwest City Way.

Toucan crossing across Mosspark Boulevard to reach the Dumbreck Road shared footway route across the railway and motorway bridge, heading towards Pollok Country Park. If coming from the west, the grass separates the shared path from the ... [more]

The path alongside Bellahouston Park and Mosspark Boulevard leads directly to the toucan crossing across Dumbreck Road to Fleurs Avenue, but there is no link across the grass to the new toucan crossing across Mosspark Boulevard to join the ... [more]

Roadworks closing the shared footway alongside Bunhouse Road. Pedestrians are diverted through the car park, no mention of cycling. I went onto the road, but this is not possible in the opposite direction since it is one-way.

The underpass in #170471 does see some usage for getting between NCN7 and the Scotstoun Conservation Area, since the route gives safe access to Earlbank Avenue.

The footway is meant to be shared-use, but is not signed as such, and is covered in debris from the disintegrating road surface. This provides a cycle route between the Clyde Tunnel and some entrances to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

The footway of Hillington Road (at least part of which is shared-use) is loosing width to the bush, which will need cut back at some point. The toucan crossing connects Penilee and Hillington as part of a minimal signage quietway style c ... [more]

A ramp has been provided behind the bus stop, in addition to steps, to connect from Thornliebank Road up to Cartcraigs Road. (This does not form part of the cycle route, but could be used for connections to and from it.)

The pedestrian crossing on the Newlands to Silverburn cycle route at Thornliebank Road is out of use. This is quite a busy road, and being next to a roundabout it is not terribly easy to cross the road unaided at this location.

I came around the corner from Barrhead Road into Pollokshaws Road to find the footway there is now shared-use. There was no obvious start to this.

A parallel cycle zebra crossing across Kennishead Road, for the shared-use cycle route along Barrhead Road.

The tiniest shared-use sign on the path to Bengal Street.

A split toucan crossing across Pollokshaws Road, at the end of the path from Bengal Street. A shared footway connects this to the entrance to Pollok Country Park.

The western footway of Dumbreck Road over the railway and motorway bridges here is now shared-use. Although the footway is only slightly wider, various permanent clutter has been removed such as a cabinet and sign poles.

The funding sign for the Dumbreck Road/Mosspark Boulevard junction improvements, that included a staggered toucan crossing and footway upgrade to shared-use. This project linked up the Haggs Road/Dumbreck Road shared footway and NCN7/75 ... [more]

The western footway of Dumbreck Road is now shared-use as far as the Mosspark Boulevard junction, although the only sign to confirm this appears to be the low-level green sign seen on the railings in the background.

Installation work on a protected cycle lane in Royston Road. Alterations appear to have been made.

As with #169532, the first opportunity to leave the presumably shared footway (there are no signs to confirm this) is beyond the roundabout where a dropped kerb crossing has been provided.

The first opportunity to leave the presumably shared footway from the toucan crossings at the motorway junction is up beyond the roundabout at the housing on the left (see #169533).

The shared footway on Aikenhead Road, at the junction with Polmadie Road. There is no off-road cycling option for journeys that do not continue along Aikenhead Road. All the crossings are for pedestrians only.

The shared footway has been built along Spean Street without any thought for those that want to leave or join the route at intermediate junctions. Dropped kerbs are missing at various locations where such a turn may be required. And foot ... [more]

Car parking on the Spean Street shared footway.

Car parking on the Spean Street shared footway.

A route sign and pavement parking on the Spean Street shared footway. The shared footway effectively forms a contraflow since this section of the street is one-way.

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.

South City Way at Bowman Street. In theory, it appears they expect cycles to be able to access the side road, but no dropped kerb has been provided to get from the cycle track onto the shared footway. And no provision for right turns or goi ... [more]

That moment when you stop to take a photo and there's a cyclist approaching on the narrow shared footway and a bus approaching on the adjacent busway, before there's time to get the camera ready. All I could do was to move into the side.

Transition between segregated paths and shared footway, with incorrect corduroy tactile paving.

Uncontrolled crossing of Alderman Road, signed for cycling and walking. View opposite to that in #165306.

Uncontrolled crossing of Alderman Road, signed for cycling and walking. No change from #36030.

The signed path between Hawick Street and Kelso Street is obviously not fit for purpose, but nothing has been done to this path since it was initially installed. No change since #36031.

The Kelso Street cycle lane directs cyclists to use a narrow path of paving slabs, with hoop barriers at the end. Sightlines on the corner are not great either.

Car parking partly blocking the dropped kerb for the cycle path access at Fore Street, also partly on the school zig-zag markings.

The shared-use footway on Archerhill Road crosses sides, from the wide footway to the narrow footway with a campervan parked on it, right at the end of the zig-zags for the toucan crossing and next to a junction.

Car parking by a professional driver on the shared-use footway on Archerhill Road.

Please dismount for the freshly laid 10 metres of straight tarmac that has recently been laid. What is this pointlessness? @GoBikeGlasgow https://t.co/q8wMpCpnXE

Regular, not sporadic, enforcement of dbl yellows is needed on Spean St. This shared footway/cycle path is blocked daily by cars, SUVs, vans and lorries. 21 vehicles today. Zero space for people to social distance either. @GlasgowCC ple ... [more]

The popup cycle lane in Clyde Street, to provide extra capacity for NCN75 on the shared footway.

Path from Provost Way to the riverside path bypassing the steeply graded path in #99172.

A cycle track extends from the end of Gallowhill Road alongside the B759 as far as an entrance to the Cathkin Braes mountain biking.

A toucan crossing across a motorway sliproad at Robroyston.

Although there are no signs on this section, this footway joins together two toucan crossings so can probably be considered shared-use. The roundabout on this side of the motorway has been considerably enlarged.

A toucan crossing at Saughs Avenue. There is no indication whether or not the shared footways continue beyond the crossing up Saughs Avenue.

A toucan crossing across Saughs Avenue.

Since there is only a shared footway on this side of Saughs Road at this point, anyone using it wanting to go to Robroyston station must go left to cross Saughs Avenue before starting to head towards the station.

This must be a cycle path! Access to ASDA supermarket and retail park from the shared footway at Saughs Road.

The end of the shared footway on Saughs Avenue. But since there is a shared footway across the toucan crossing, there is really no need for the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign. However, the shared footway is far too narrow.

The start of the shared footway along Saughs Road, that starts at a turning built for some future development that as yet hasn't been built.

A shared footway and toucan crossing on Saughs Road. The shared footway on this side continues as far as the dead-end turning for a future development, and the footway on the other side of the road becomes shared-use at the crossing.

The shared footway between Saughs Road and Robroyston Road. It continues as far as the Nova Business Park.

The start of the shared footway on the east side of Robroyston Road. Just a dropped kerb to allow cyclists to join.

The shared-use sign seen in #112689 is single-sided, and there is only a dropped kerb crossing on the southwest and southeast sides of the roundabout, not the northeast side.

A shared-use footway on Robroyston Park outside the Nova Business Park.

No crossing from the exit from Robroyston Park to the shared footway on the east side of Robroyston Park. The footway on the near side is not shared-use.

The kind of dropped kerb that really needs nibbed to protect it from car parking. The kerb across the road is completely blocked. On this side of Holmfauldhead Place a shared-use footway has been created between this dropped kerb and the ... [more]

The sign in #33288 still standing defiantly!

@cyclestreets Spean St, Glasgow - the pedestrian/cycle path is effectively just a residents' car park. @SustransScot @citycyclists @GoBikeGlasgow @LStreetsScot and while I am here > @StewartMcDonald @glasgowc @MMorganSNP @policescotland ... [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 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.
