Another planter displaced in Kelvin Way. Time for something more permanent.

Work continues on the Gorbals Street cycleway, which will form part of the South City Way. This is the toucan crossing where NCN756, the South Bank cycle route, crosses.

Contactless method of activating the crossing.

New planters, and the toucan crossing is now free from obstruction. However, the tiny 'No Entry' on the bollard on the right is incorrect because this is just the way you would pass to turn right into the Kelvingrove Art Gallery grounds.

Most folk may cross without making use of the toucan crossing in Kelvin Way, but that's no reason to block the crossing with planters. This raises accessibility issues.

While the two crossings on Maryhill Road are pedestrian crossings, the crossing on the Hopehill Road side of the junction is a toucan crossing.

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]

'Cycles only' on University Avenue, apparently.

An off-side cycle lane on Hopehill Road. I'm not sure what this is for.

The obstructive toucan crossing with kerbs and railings on one side still remains unmodified, and none of the other problems previously noted on the Bilsland Drive cycle lanes have been resolved either.

The route sign says "Primary School" but the dropped kerb at the junction is of poor quality, with no obvious dropped kerb on the other side of the road closure in Dowanhill Street. The Colleges Route cycle lane has been made narrower an ... [more]

I'm still not sure what purpose this isolated section of cycletrack is for.

Several planters on Kelvin Way have been pushed aside, some of them are obstructing the cycleway. Fly parking is occurring without enforcement.

The traffic signals poles have been damaged.

The toucan crossing midway along North Canal Bank Street has been installed, but the tactile paving is still the incorrect corduroy (hazard) rather than the cycleway type. The top surface for both the cycleway and carriageway remains to be ... [more]

a cyclist leant their bike here. Only explanation https://t.co/vmLh9GKEKP

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.

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 footway on the north side of Castlebank Street resumes, but is fenced off just west of the toucan crossing (as seen in #173896). That doesn't stop people using it, and a worn desire line is visible in the grass verge too. NCN7 crosse ... [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]

The paving may be fancy, but the toucan crossing is decidedly substandard.

The staggered toucan crossing on Castlebank Street at the end of the fancy bridge from Beith Street has a rather narrow central island, made worse by the railing have taken a bit of a battering.

The council has fenced off the former cycle off-slip from the Clyde Arc bridge at the NCN75 toucan crossing. This helped those making right turns by allowing cyclists to leave the carriageway and make the turn with the assistance of the cro ... [more]

If a gap wasn't possible opposite James Watt Street (see #173269), a cycle slip lane onto the central reservation island would be useful to enable a right turn onto the toucan crossing across the opposite carriageway to be made, and then he ... [more]

The lack of a connection from James Watt Street to the riverside NCN75 path and the Tradeston Bridge (visible background left) continues to make this a difficult place to cycle. A gap through the kerb and railing on the far side of the junc ... [more]

There is no easy way to get to the start of the Sauchiehall Street cycleway at Charing Cross. From this painted lane a left turn into the motorway sliproad is required to get to the dropped kerb at the toucan crossing. There is nothing to m ... [more]

I noticed this dropped kerb at the Advance Stop Line box and investigated whether it was installed to aid cycling from St George's Road to the toucan crossing chain through the junction, but no, it was left over from a pedestrian crossing t ... [more]

Council destination sign all arms pointing the wrong way, and narrow green strip cycleway poorly implemented and signed.

Sighthill regeneration continues. From the width of this path, and the toucan crossings at the junction, it appears it may be a shared-use path in place of the Glasgow to Cumbernauld cycle route path that used to be here.

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.

Subsiding pedestrian crossing tactiles at toucan crossing in Dyke Road.

Despite the provision of a sign proudly pointing this way, there is still no dropped kerb to allow cyclists proper smooth access onto the carriageway of Springburn Way from the toucan crossing across Atlas Road. Not pictured, but while I ... [more]

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]

The toucan crossing gives access to the protected South West Cityway cycle route on Shields Road.

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 Nextbike docking station at Keppochhill Road, with the St Rollox Drive cycle track in the background.

A cycle hire station in Pollokshields on Maxwell Drive/St Andrew's Drive, and a painted footway cycle lane leading to a toucan crossing to the right.

The footway cycle lane from Maxwell Drive ends at the toucan crossing on St Andrew's Drive. The person cycling had come from the path from Maxwell Grove.

A split toucan crossing across the Fastlink busway and the main Broomielaw carriageway, connecting the riverside path and Brown 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 upgraded M77 motorway sliproad crossing at Dumbreck Road. However, the footway beyond is still quite narrow, and the pop-up cycle lane seeks to address this.

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.

The cycle traffic signals at Dargarvel Avenue, at the Dumbreck Road/Dumbreck Avenue junction. The junction also has toucan crossings around two sides. The shapes of the gaps do not make it easy to make movements straight across the junction ... [more]

A toucan crossing across the Clydeside Expressway sliproad, but not across Finnieston Street. Nothing to say any footway is legal for cycling. The toucan crossing is one of a chain of toucan crossings leading to the path to Minerva Street.

Toucan crossings all around the junction, but are any of the footways actually legal to cycle on? In any case, that street lighting column is blocking the footway.

Corkerhill Road, with a cycle lane for northbound cyclists, and a toucan crossing for those going via Pollok Park (following NCN7 and NCN75). Protection of the cycle lane by means of armadillos starts after the bus stop.

Linthaugh Terrace meets Corkerhill Road, where NCN7 and NCN75 cross over to the footway on the far side of the dual carriageway. If not going via Pollok Park, northbound cyclists should stay on this side where there is a (now protected) cyc ... [more]

At most of the toucan crossings on the South City Way, the cycle track is flush with the footway adjacent to the crossing, but at this one, on this side only, the cycle track dips down below the kerb height, creating a step down, just where ... [more]

The South City Way cycle route on Victoria Road.

Work blocking the South City Way cycle track on Pollokshaws Road, and also showing the general layout at toucan crossings along the route.

The path has clearly been built to align with Bell's Bridge, but this alignment is nothing without a proper crossing. Instead, there's a staggered toucan crossing off to the right, as indicated by the sign. See also #93791 taken from the ot ... [more]

A short section of cycle lane on Seaward Street, but not really any use for crossing at the toucan crossing.

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

The pop-up cycle lane leads straight into a build-out for a toucan crossing. No ramp has been provided and the railings remain in place, unlike the other side.

The traffic signals at Lochburn Road are now operational, and the low-level cycle signals give a head-start of a few seconds before the main signals change.

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

Traffic signals being installed on Lochburn Road at the canal bridge. Low-level cycle signals have been included for cyclists going along Lochburn Road. [Now they are operational, the low-level signals give cyclists a head-start of a few se ... [more]

The cycleway on Langlands Road has now been extended across Golspie Street.

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]

A driver stopped on the Beith Street toucan crossing, which then changed to the pedestrian/cycle phase, and she is also using her phone.

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.

A kerb to bump on the way from the Forth & Clyde Canal path access to the toucan crossing across Maryhill Road and path up towards Duncruin Street.

Waterloo Street, at the end of the proper protected cycle lane, and the start of the divided footway with bumpy paving for the cycle side (see #95475). I notice from Google Streetview and OSM that there appears to be something similar go ... [more]

No cycle parking at shops in Kelvindale Road. I watched the owner of the bike in the foreground walk into the shop, and the owner of the bike across the road has just emerged from the shop.

Toucan crossing on Beith Street out of use. This road can be quite busy at peak times.

Whoever designed this does not cycle! The cycle lane being used as a car park goes is obstructed by a kerb at the toucan crossing over to Morrison's supermarket and retail park.

A toucan crossing across a motorway sliproad at Robroyston.

A cover on one of the traffic signals at the Robroyston motorway junction sliproad, even though the toucan crossing is working and uncovered.

A cover over one of the traffic signals at the partly signalised roundabout at the M80 Robroyston junction at Saughs Road.

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

No dropped kerb to get directly from the retail park to the Saughs Avenue toucan crossing.

A toucan crossing across Saughs Avenue.

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.

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 staggered toucan crossings across Berryknowes Road do not even line up with the path from the flats.

Toucan crossings at the junction between Berryknowes Road and Kingsland Drive, although there are no cycle routes or shared footways leading up to them.

No dropped kerb at the south side of the toucan crossing seen in #112196, for access to the crossing from a network of low-traffic back-streets.

A new toucan crossing at the junction of Keppochhill Road, Carlisle Street and St Rollox Drive, the new road across the northern edge of the Sighthill redevelopment.

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

According to Network Rail, the railway bridge on Muirhead Road has been "rebuilt stronger and wider to enable two-way traffic, cycle route and pedestrian footpath". I don't see a cycle route. https://www.networkrailmediacentre.co.uk/news ... [more]

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.

The Dyke Road cycleway ends at a new toucan crossing which provides a connection to Speirshall Close. There were new 'Recommended Route for Cyclists' signs in Speirshall Close, but I couldn't work out where they were leading. NCN7 can be ... [more]

The traffic signals on Alderman Road have acquired a cycle advance green of about 6 seconds before the full green in one direction, plus a toucan crossing on this side for those cycling down the footway of Lincoln Avenue.

The cycle parking at the Kelvin Hall (see #95296) has been removed without replacement, meaning bikes are getting locked to railings here and around the corner.

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]

Roadworks affecting the signed link between NCN 7 and Partick station, but not clear if the route is open or closed, no diversion, obstructions on the toucan crossing. A poor show all round!

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.

Toucan crossings over Paisley Road and the sliproad from Carnoustie Street, under the Kingston Bridge.

Toucan crossings across to the Paisley Road cycle track. Some of the green phases overlap.

This traffic island needs a gap to allow signalled cycle access between the Tradeston Bridge and York Street. It could also be used for right turns from Broomielaw (for those coming from Blythswood St and James Watt St) towards the Tradesto ... [more]

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?
