Although Glasgow City Council has declared that closing Kelvin Way to motor vehicles is to be permanent, none of the motoring infrastructure has been removed. The railings, kerbs, bollards, parking meters, and this toucan crossing all remai ... [more]

Zebra crossings across both the carriageway and cycleway on Bunhouse Road. It is unclear whether pedestrians are allowed or barred from the former shared use footway.

Zebra crossings across both the carriageway and cycleway in Bunhouse Road.

The badly placed lamppost referred to in #176480 causes users to end up crossing the tactile paving on a diagonal course, due to the poor planning of the cycleway alignment.

The sign seen in #95295 to warn (or inform since it wasn't a warning sign) of the cycle track crossing has gone missing. Also, the tactile paving for the pedestrian crossing has several tyre tracks across it.

No clearance of any of the muck covering up part of the NCN7 path next to the Clydeside Expressway.

The Glasgow Harbour "land bridge" (as it was described when it was first proposed) has subsidence issues.

This footway is significantly busier than when the area to the left was a scrapyard and not student accommodation. But the COP26 diversion route has been signed over this regardless.

No improvement at Argyle Street. However, the plastic barrier which had been pushed beyond the asphalt ramp has been restored to its intended position.

Narrow redesignated footway on expressway sliproad, with added fencing. When the fencing was installed, it blocked a dropped kerb at the toucan crossing ahead, but this had been resolved by the time I was there.

The COP26 diversion route goes from Castlebank Street to Beith Street along the narrow remote footway, which has been signed as shared use.

The soft segregation for the COP26 diversion route does not extend as far as the Castlebank Street junction, even though Beith Street is a very wide road for a one lane each way road. Cyclists are diverted back onto the narrow footway to ge ... [more]

The ramps at the soft segregation provided for the COP26 diversion are tiny, and completely unusable should anyone turn up on anything other than a standard solo bicycle.

The soft segregation for the COP26 diversion on Beith Street does not even extend to the Benalder Street junction. It, like the similar work on Argyle Street, is done to a poor standard and provides a narrow space for cycling alongside the ... [more]

Unusably bad soft segregation has been put in on Argyle Street for the COP26 diversion route, and is dangerous for various reasons, including lorry parking right up to the pedestrian crossing point blocking sight lines. See also #175137.

Very poor soft segregation on Argyle Street for the COP26 diversion route.

Soft segregation has been put in on Argyle Street for the COP26 diversion route, but is of such poor quality that it is worse than useless. See also #175139.

Railing and triple barrier at the foot of path from Kendoon Avenue to Inchfad Drive, signed as cycle path.

Burnt out debris at the junction of paths between Kendoon Avenue and Inchfad Drive, signed as a cycle path.

The Stobcross Bridge is to be shut during the COP26 conference for some sort of security reason.

The end of Port Street has cycle route signage, but no dropped kerb to access the path seemlessly.

The path next to the Clydeside Expressway at Skypark.

"Cyclists Please Dismount" on NCN7 at Scottish Events Campus. Also "Pedestrians this way" without indicating a way. The footway is shared use. Update: The "No Cycling/Cyclists Please Dismount" sign in the photo above has since been remov ... [more]

A new section of cycle track at West Street, showing junction with Clyde Place cycle track. See #169987 for view in opposite direction.

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.
