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 dropped kerb has indeed been installed (see #98305), providing access to the toucan crossing.

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.

The start of the toucan crossing chain from the former Harry Ramsden's restaurant to the Paisley Road cycle track.

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?

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.

A sign giving directions along the path on the other side of the roundabout, but no actual crossing of Shieldhall Road at the roundabout.

The Torrisdale Street contraflow cycle track, looking towards the Pollokshaws Road toucan crossing.

A dropped kerb is to be added for access to the toucan crossing. Surely something that should have been done when this layout was originally built.

A toucan crossing across the Springburn Road sliproads.

No dropped kerb to access toucan crossing across Fountainwell Road from adjacent road-end, and some subsidence in the footway.

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.

The path between Ballater Street and Waterside Street has been closed off due to its collapse. Divert to Waterside Street via McNeil Street, or to Rutherglen via NCN75 on the other side of the river (NCN756 through Richmond Park is also ... [more]

Roadworks on the shared-use footway on Moss Road.

A split toucan crossing across the western hospital entrance on Govan Road, but no obvious signs allowing cycling on the footway, and the eastern entrance a short distance away has ordinary pedestrian-only signals.

If cycling isn't allowed on the footway on this side of Shieldhall Road, then why the toucan crossing?

Four toucan crossings to reach the far side of Fairhill Avenue, with unresponsive traffic signals, and green on different phases. The Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route starts here, at its unsigned junction with the Corkerh ... [more]

Three toucan crossings to reach the far side of Barrhead Road, with unresponsive traffic signals, and green on different phases, so potentially a lot of waiting, unless you spot a gap in the traffic and just go on red. The Silverburn to ... [more]

Cars being parked on the Kelvin Walkway and West City Way, because someone has removed some of the bollards that mark the limit of the car park.

NCN7, the Meadow Road underpass, and the toucan crossing across to the Glasgow Harbour development.

A new toucan crossing on Beith Street for the new Lidl store, but needlessly difficult to get to from Anderson Street due to its position and all the clutter, including kerbs, in the way.

Barriers each side of the Clyde Gateway toucan crossing still present an obstacle to anyone using Baltic Street as a through route on a bike.

Glasgow's first Advance Green cycle light, allowing right turns into Bridge Street for a few seconds before motor traffic gets the green light to do likewise.

Toucan crossings to access the Paisley Road cycle track.

A wider view of the toucan crossing shown in #89015 that leads only to the bus stop in the distance (beside the bus). The toucan crossings do not connect anywhere where it is legal to cycle other than the carriageway. The crossings are barr ... [more]

Despite the footway of the A89 not allowing cycling, and despite this crossing leading to nothing but a bus stop that does not have any bus services carrying bikes, a toucan crossing has been installed across Coatbridge Road. Does this come ... [more]

A mysterious strip of asphalt has appeared at the new toucan crossing in Royston.

A nice wide toucan crossing across Ballater Street.

The alignment of Baltic Street is somewhat obstructed at the crossing of Dunn Street (see nearby photos).

Kerbs make the route around the private yard on the left more difficult, impeding access to the Dunn Street toucan crossing.

Unfortunately the alignment of the Dunn Street toucan crossing does not match the alignment of Baltic Street. Even with the private yard on the left, it could be arranged better than this.

Nice straight alignment of Baltic Street, but no dropped kerb at end of path from toucan crossing.

Path from Baltic Street to Dunn Street crossing blocked by kerb.

The Baltic Street alignment has been obstructed with railings both sides at the Clyde Gateway toucan crossing. This side doesn't even have a dropped kerb! See also #87992.

The way between Baltic St and the Clyde Gateway toucan crossing has been obstructed both sides with a railing. See also #87993.

New toucan crossing, not presently on any permanent cycle route, just a long term diversion. Plus some sandbags that once held a diversion signs in place, both in the foreground and in the background across the crossing.

No improvement to the narrow traffic island at the St Rollox Brae junction.

Conversion to toucan crossing underway at Petershill Road.

Junction crossing newly converted to toucan crossing, including some resurfacing and tactiles, but no dropped kerb for access to Springburn Way! This is meant to be a new cycle route!

A dropped kerb and a short section of shared-use footway, leading to a toucan crossing across Great Western Road, for those not keen on making the right turn on the road.

A short section of shared-use footway leading to the toucan crossing across Great Western Road, but no dropped kerb, unlike #87530.

A 2-stage toucan crossing across Pacific Drive and the Fastlink busway. Is there any reason why one direct crossing in line with the path on each side could not have been used? At one bus every 10 minutes each way on the busway, it's not li ... [more]

NCN 7 & 75 turn right here, but the council banned the turn on the road, so it must be made via the footway and the 3-stage toucan crossing in #87102.

Tricky 3-stage toucan crossing across Pacific Drive on NCN 7 & 75. Hopeless design! But if you are following the National Cycle Network routes, you must use it due to the banned turn in #87103.

A 3-stage toucan crossing across Finnieston St where no crossing existed previously.

The cycle track crosses to the opposite side of Elderslie St at the toucan crossing.

A 2-stage toucan crossing across the Fastlink busway and Broomielaw to get to Brown St.

A 3-stage toucan crossing across the Fastlink busway and Broomielaw to get to York St, with added caging.

The sign gives directions for left and right, but some people may actually want to go straight on, but the way is blocked by a planted area and the Fastlink busway. Behind the planted area is a 3-stage toucan crossing across Broomielaw (see ... [more]

A Toucan Crossing has been installed, even though there is no obvious reason why someone would cross the road here on a bike.

The end of the George V Bridge contraflow cycle track. The options here are turning left or right onto the Clyde Place cycleway, or left onto the Clyde Place carriageway, or perhaps U-turning.

The George V Bridge crossing in the Clyde Place cycleway, where a parallel arrangement for pedestrians and cyclists has been used.

The Clyde Street cycleway approaching the George V Bridge crossing.

The Clyde Street cycleway approaching crossing across to Carlton Place.

A parallel arrangement for cyclists and pedestrians on this toucan crossing, but not very well aligned with infrastructure either side.

The end of the new protected cycle lane across Glasgow Bridge. Only a poor quality painted cycle lane continues along Bridge Street, and apparently no provision for left or right turns onto the East-West NCN756 which crosses the road at the ... [more]

The stepped cycle lane on George V Bridge is somewhat difficult to get onto from Commerce Street due to all the clutter on the footway, and potentially people waiting at the crossing. But as we can see from #82971, it is only useful for ... [more]

Infra stops functioning when 4+ cyclists (never mind pedestrians) use it at once. Built to fail. https://t.co/SKX6GH02q2 [See also #80717]

Building work on site adjacent to the Waterloo St cycle track has resulted in this covered walkway/cycleway being erected (see also #81087 & #81088).

Cycled 18 miles home #TeamGlasgow No room to pass here, even without pedestrians @GlasgowCC is #lettingtheteamdown https://t.co/XJmpyAGInk

No dropped kerb on path to toucan crossing across Muirhead Road.

A cluttered start to the South-West City Way in Shields Road, plus an incorrect direction sign for Shields Road subway station pointing left (it's actually straight ahead).

The Wallace Street toucan crossing suffers from ponding.

The hitherto segregated cycleway turns into a shared-use footway, with an open gutter across the forced desire-line, and into a narrow blind corner at Wallace Street.

A new toucan crossing across Gorbals Street, next to Victoria Bridge. The path straight ahead has a short flight of steps on it (see #37094).

A new toucan crossing across Crown Street, next to Albert Bridge. I pressed the button to cross, waited, crossed during a gap in traffic, then it detected that I had crossed and cancelled the call button.

Toucan crossing across Clyde Gateway next to Rutherglen Bridge, and access ramp to Clyde Walkway.

New guardrail already destroyed by a lawless speeding driver. http://t.co/VbI8GV6RoP

While the cycle parking provision at the new Village development is welcome, I think we can all see what is going to happen due to the lack of a path directly into the site from the toucan crossing. [Paving has since been provided.]

On joining the shared-use footway from Aikenhead Road I almost collided with another person on a bike coming the other way at this blind corner. Poor sightlines here. Additionally, the writing on the direction sign is so small that it is ... [more]
