The Drumchapel Way path is becoming increasingly blocked by overgrowing bushes, in addition to the surface deteriorating.

Newly rebuilt path associated with the Scottish Water works. The gravel surface on the path bypassing the children's playground is held in place with a plastic mesh.

Newly rebuilt paths associated with the Scottish Water works. The paths change from asphalt to gravel.

The slab paving work at Ferry Road is now complete but the asphalt footway remains to be finished. Some graffiti has been painted over, but new graffiti has appeared. The obstruction seen in #173875 has been removed. The former cycle dir ... [more]

The dropped kerb at the end of Ferry Road is now clear from obstructions (see #173875), but the footway surface is still incomplete.

Work on the path through Yorkhill Park appears to be incomplete. While work on the wall appears to have been completed to a high standard, the path is missing its top surface, and the lighting columns have been placed within the width of th ... [more]

Work on the path through Yorkhill Park appears to be incomplete. The surface is quite bumpy.

NCN7 alongside the Clydeside Expressway, with the right-hand verge encroaching onto the path.

Tree roots damaging the surface of NCN7.

Tree roots damaging the surface of NCN7.

The toucan crossing across Castlebank Street at the Glasgow Harbour development is missing its red man and green cycle lights. The road surface is also badly worn.

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 foootway, and the cycle route sign is pointing the wrong way, and least for Loch Lomond.

A new cycle access point to the NCN7 path at the Beith Street/Rosevale Street roundabout, but nothing done to rectify the adjacent tree root damage.

Tree root damage left unattended to when work has been done to install a new access point at the roundabout.

Tree root damage to the NCN7 path that has been left unattended to for so long that the actual root is now exposed. See also #99471.

Tree root damage all the way up the NCN7 ramp from the Hayburn Street underpass.

Surface dressing has been applied to the canal towpath between Yoker and Clydebank.

Access between Drumchapel and Bearsden has been maintained during the long-term water works. The surface of the temporary path is stones and not good for cycling on. However, the path south (to the right) has been closed since it goes throu ... [more]

The Drumchapel Way path surface is poor.

The path does not have a proper built surface.

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.

Still surfacing work outstanding at the south end of the Garscube Road cycle track.

A new section of cycleway has appeared on Craighall Road and the correct Cycleway tactile slabs have been used. I'm going to have to have another look at that central dividing strip though. The surface has been left incomplete.

A short diversion around some ongoing work, but the uneven surface and narrow width make it rather awkward to negotiate.

The Garscadden Way and path to the Drumchapel Way is presently blocked by Scottish Water works, but the path to Annan Drive has been kept open. Conon Avenue has now reopened.

The path from Canniesburn Road going over to join the Garscadden Way and Drumchapel Way.

A poor surface on the path the Glasgow to Cumbernauld cycle route is signed along in Glenconner Park. With a little bit of work it could even be quite nice, although the person cycling along the footway of Royston Road in the background wou ... [more]

The resurfaced section of the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath will tie into the work at Stockingfield Junction, where a bridge is being built across the canal.

Although the main towpath has been resurfaced, nothing has been done about the poor connection from the towpath to the path to Vaila Street. In addition to local access, this is important for making connections between the canal and Summers ... [more]

A section of Forth & Clyde Canal towpath has been resurfaced, between Cadder and Stockingfield.

Slow progress on the Old Dumbarton Road cycle track. The corduroy tacile paving is incorrect.

The path from Shields Road and Scotland Street runs alongside the northernmost section of Shields Road before rejoining the road. The asphalt strip gets progressively narrower, forcing everyone onto the cobbles.

The section of cycle track on the traffic island between Pollokshaws Road and Cathcart Road has been marked with red surface, unlike anything else in the South City Way to date. Work continues.

The cycle track linking Stockwell Place to Dunlop Street, providing an alternative route for a banned turn from Stockwell Street into Clyde Street, and a local link between parts of Howard Street and Dunlop Street. The green surface is b ... [more]

Regular parking spot in the pop-up cycle lane in Bilsland Drive, and also further drainage issues.

Drainage problems on pop-up cycle lane in Bilsland Drive at toucan crossing next to Ruchill Park.

Drainage problems on pop-up cycle lane oon Bilsland Drive.

Bumpy path at the riverside.

Ponding and tree root damage on the rebuilt section of canal path at Blairdardie.

Collapsing and muddy tactile paving at the M8 on-slip toucan crossing at Craighall Road.

Grit from disintegrating road surface covering cycle lane. But makes seeing several sets of bike tyre tracks easier.

Poor lumpy asphalt surface on bridge over Forth & Clyde Canal.

Deteriorating road surface beyond the mini-roundabout on Alderman Road. The cycle lane appears to be in the poorest of condition compared to the surrounding road surface.

Deteriorating road surface on much of the Alderman Road cycle lanes. The opportunity could be used to swap the parking and cycle lanes about, which would result in less wear and tear on the cycle lane in future.

The southern end of the Garscube Road cycle track still hasn't been completed, but is at least now rideable. Top surface is all that is required. Further north, the path is complete up until Sawmillfield Street, with work in progress at the ... [more]

The new cycle track along Old Dumbarton Road. In addition to the top surface (in the foreground) not being machine laid, the tactiles are incorrect Corduroy/Hazard type and not the Tramlines/Cycleway type. Being at the foot of a hill, these ... [more]

The new cycle track on Old Dumbarton Road has expensive stone kerbs and divider strips, but the top surface has not been machine laid, so is lumpy and uneven. Disappointing. The cycle track replaces on-street metered parking.

The surface of Lymburn Street is rather bumpy, with poorly relaid cobbles.

One of several nasty breaks in the asphalt on the path between Caldercuilt Road and Acre Road.

A poor surface in the University Avenue cycle lane, and incursion by a car driver.

Messy obstructed cycleway on Douglas Street, with a totally inappropriate surface. Just like the one on Waterloo Street to the left (see #95475 and #95476).

The ramp at Glendinning Road is still steep and poorly surfaced. There's plenty of room here for a decent ramp to be built.

No dropped kerb at the start of a path connecting Collina Street near new housing development to the Forth & Clyde Canal and Maryhill Road. The path is in poor condition and has some shallow steps in it too.

@MCRCycleSam @RantyHighwayman @CyclingSurgeon @theJeremyVine I guess we should also factor in that you’ll have double deckers coming straight at nearly on the line... 😢 https://t.co/6dNqsRA9eY [See also #139326]

The surface of the path between Prospecthill Circus and Toryglen Road in Rutherglen has still not been improved. This would form a useful alternative to the main Prospecthill Road, including for commuting. But not in this state.

Anyone wanting to avoid the traffic on Argyle Street by using the route in #113424 is faced with this poor quality back lane to get to Corunna Street. Watch out for glass!

The path surface has become mud on this short section.

Path rebuilding work in progress.

Path rebuilding in progress.

One of the signs is clearly not pointing the right way, and the surface is poor, but the path behind the camera is being rebuilt (see #113011).

A big hole in the path between the bollards, and evidence of flooding and poor drainage.

A poor transition between one section of riverside path and another, which could be made much smoother to allow users to concentrate on not hitting the posts instead.

A poor change of surface on the path from Crookston Road into Rosshall Park.

A terrible change of surface on the path from Rosshall Park to Crookston Road. Mind how you go!

On the left, the Garscadden Way, leading to the Drumchapel Way, and on the right, the path through to Annan Drive. Both could do with some proper path building works.

Was I imaging in #107165 that this path was being upgraded?

A poor quality surface at the start of the Cleddans Burn path, part of the Garscadden Way cycle route and Drumchapel Way walking route. The footway on the Goals access road swaps from the north to the south side at this point.

Poor condition asphalt path and damaged marker post on the Drumchapel Way.

The connection to NCN7 at Sandholm Terrace is formed with horrible concrete blocks with gaps in between.

If it's not for cars then it's alright to park across. Still no surfaced connection to NCN7.

This is what happens when you resurface the car driving lane and not the cycle lane. A few years later and the surface has deteriorated so much that it can barely support the road markings.

The path connecting the Forth & Clyde Canal to Netherton Road next to the David Lloyd centre is in a very poor condition, not just a poor and narrow surface but quite overgrown too.

A very narrow and bumpy path that could be improved to connect Kirklee with Kelvindale Road and the Kelvin Walkway across the river.

No dropped kerb at the entrance to a signed path linking Netherton Road to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath.

A signed link to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, but unsurfaced and overgrown. Not the same link as shown in #100262.

An unsurfaced link to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath from the end of a residential part of Netherton Road. See also #100261.

The motorway surface would never have been left like this, so why the core path and cycling route?

Fences βœ… Crash barriers βœ… Surface ❌ Unless you like cycling on the A89 dual carriageway, this is one of the few options for getting around Baillieston Interchange and on to Bargeddie.

I guess they thought this old piece of path would be acceptable within this huge motorway building project. If someone ever did shut this gate properly and someone in a wheelchair needed to open it, it would be extremely difficult to do ... [more]

Tree root damage to NCN 7 cycle path in Partick. See also #173694.

Broken path surface and broken glass on the climb up from Drumoyne Road to the Craigton Road underpass.

Although narrow at each end (see #98928 and #98993), the middle section of the path between Meiklewood Road and Drumoyne Road is reasonably wide. But it could do with being a bit smoother.

Quite why this hole has been left in the road I don't know. The cycle lane has been replaced by the cycle track on the right.

The newly built section of the Waterloo St cycle track has been surfaced with little stone blocks, and features this sharp deviation around a new layby. In the background is the toucan crossing across to the Anderston Bridge.

A brand new section of cycle track on Waterloo St, which has been surfaced with silly stone blocks, with little to distinguish it from the footway, unlike the rest of Waterloo St where the distinction is much clearer.

A slight adverse camber on the shiny smooth asphalt cycle track.

The surface on the cycleway is the same shiny smooth asphalt used on the footway. Not good for grip.

A pothole in Radnor Street, with exposed cobbles. UPDATE 2020: Road now resurfaced.

Broken asphalt on the route the Kelvingrove Art Gallery boss preferred cyclists to take rather than the more obvious route through the car park.

A car blocking the dropped kerb at the top of the ramp from Hillpark Drive. The path itself is not particularly smooth.

It's hard to believe that this path is only a few weeks old. Unlike the other rebuilt paths linking to and from the Kelvin Walkway, this riverside path was not asphalted, but instead has been given a loose surface. Unsurprisingly, it is ... [more]

Unlike the other rebuilt paths linking to and from the Kelvin Walkway, this riverside path was not asphalted, but instead has been given a loose surface. Unsurprisingly, it is already wrecked after the first heavy rain since it was built. W ... [more]

One of two people on bikes I saw using this section of the Garscadden Way.

The Garscadden Way almost indiscernible approaching the Drumchapel Road crossing. Only the old access barrier gives a clue to it once being a Strathclyde Regional Council cycle route.

The Garscadden Way heading towards its southeastern end.

The Garscadden Way heading towards its southeastern end.

The Drumchapel Way and Garscadden Way meet and head onwards between the trees. The Drumchapel Way comes along the path from Kinfauns Drive and turns, while the path continues on to Annan Drive. The Garscadden Way comes across the grass from ... [more]
