The original full size cycle traffic signals seen in #72137 have been replaced with miniature ones.

Hey @GlasgowCC, amy chance you could do some enforcement of the "No Loading" zone on the @swcw24 ? https://t.co/qIVc6YwNPH

South West City Way blocker of the day. https://t.co/YN7IOacssw

@GlasgowCC @SandraWhiteSNP @carsickglasgow Double whammy of cycle lane (SWCW) and pavement parking today. https://t.co/wUzUaKvBq7

I rode impeccably all morning then met this. What did I do wrong Wiggo? @veloevol @AsEasyAsRiding @OfficialWIGGINS https://t.co/Dts9T60vRv

New SW Cycle Way flooded and covered in leaf mulch, treacherous. @GlasgowCC can you fix? @swcw24 @ExtraSouthside https://t.co/dazInggUCx

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).

Priority over residential side street on the two-way (despite the one-way sign) South-West City Way cycle route on West Street.

Apart from the incorrect word 'STOP' and the flooding, this is not bad. The signals even seem to change before too long as well (which is rather better than the Wallace Street toucan crossing). The South-West City Way cycle route switche ... [more]

NCN756 has now been signed via the south bank of the River Clyde, but the cycle route along this bank hasn't been built yet, and there are still some flights of steps such as at #71267! The narrow riverside footway to Springfield Quay is ... [more]

An unnecessary hazard of upstand on a diagonal kerb across the cycle route at Clyde Place.

NCN756 has now been signed via the south bank of the River Clyde, but the cycle route along this bank hasn't been built yet, and there are still some flights of steps such as at #71267! Of the destinations listed, only Richmond Park is o ... [more]

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.

The green light is only for the pedestrian crossing. There is a toucan crossing across Wallace Street at the corner.

Parallel green lights on West Street, but the word 'STOP' and the hatching across the cycle track should not be there. No need to stop when there is a green light. Also note the handrail provided for clipped in pedal users.

Lighting repairs beneath the M74 motorway bridge.

New cycle parking outside West Street subway station.

Cycle directions in tiny writing on the right-hand side of Devon Street. The straight-ahead directions can't be read due to the left sign getting in the way, and strangely no directions for the right. Basically, this type of sign is of no u ... [more]

Kilbirnie Street approaching the Eglinton Street junction.

A green strip across the junction with Salkeld Street, on Kilbirnie Street.

A green strip between parked vehicles on Kilbirnie Street. What could it be?

Painted cycle lanes on West Street. Perhaps the designer could look up the Traffic Signs Manual's road markings section to see how cycle lanes are meant to start.

Blocked cycleway outside garage.

Lots of footway parking and another car in the cycleway, outside car garage. Since there are 3 lanes on the road, why not create a parking bay on this side of the road, reducing traffic lanes to one each way? This problem isn't going to van ... [more]

Buffer strip on edge of shared-use footway outside Scotland Street School museum not actually wide enough to give full protection from opening car doors, and double yellow lines don't mean there will never be opening car doors there.

Here's one of the better junctions, with direct diagonal cycle crossing. Lights not working yet. http://t.co/Va6YcUT1mz

"We don't anticipate any problems" with illegal parking on the cycleway, @GlasgowCC said. Aww, isn't that sweet. http://t.co/TZKSAF4cLe

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

Hopefully the yellow paint marks indicate that bollards are to be installed and the 'No Entry' signs taken down. The tactiles could be corrected and the electrical cabinet moved at the same time.

Incorrect tactiles used on Shields Road at the point where the cycle track ends onto a shared-use footway at the junction with St Andrew's Road, and some upstand on part of the dropped kerb.

A floating bus stop in Shields Road.

A floating bus stop on Shields Road, with incorrect tactiles and a metal strip in place of the kerb that will be slippery when wet. Plus an unnecessary and annoying wiggle in the track beyond the bus stop.

A bit of a gap between the long-term temporary bridge barriers and the resumption of the cycle track segregation, due to the gateway. Perhaps the temporary barrier could be lengthened a bit.

The problem of the bridge over the railway still awaits a proper solution.

A floating bus stop on Shields Road.

The junction of Shields Road and Scotland Street, where the cycle track becomes a shared-use section around the corner to #70770. Anyone wanting to go in a different direction has to use the toucan crossings.

The segregated cycle track on Scotland Street turns left into West Street. Anyone wanting to turn right into West Street has to turn sharply at the gap in the railings. Minimal cycle parking outside West Street subway station, and a van ... [more]

A van parked on the footway outside West Street subway startion, when there is plenty of space to park legally and for free on the road. The cycle route crosses the footway to join the segregated cycle track on the other side of the road ... [more]

Motorists queue across the toucan crossing (see also #70773).

Split toucan crossing between two narrow footways (see also #70772). Are people really meant to cycle on this? The only other way to Vermont Street is on the busy carriageway, with the return being via the motorway junction roundabout. Moto ... [more]

A new split toucan crossing across between two fairly narrow footways (see #70773). Removing the island would allow them (especially the opposite footway) to be wider.

The motorists keep on coming, even after the toucan crossing has gone green.

The cycleway turns left via a wider shared-use footway section. For everywhere else, there is a multi-stage toucan crossing to the opposite side of the road (where the lady in hi-vis is waiting) for the Shields Road cycle track northwards, ... [more]

The cycleway and footway are vulnerable to rogue car parking in this area. The width of the junction opening doesn't help with this. But are those yellow painted markings indicating a rethink on the kerbs? UPDATE: #71206 shows new kerb a ... [more]

The segregated cycleway turns into a cycleway on the same level as the footway past the Scotland Street School Museum. Work still on-going in the picture. Opposite, the car park for Shields Road subway station.

The segregated cycleway crosses the car park access with priority over exiting vehicles, before merging into a shared-use footway.

The segregated cycleway is replaced by a shared-use footway opposite the Carnoustie Street junction. A dropped kerb has been provided, presumably for any cyclist joining the route from Carnoustie Street.

The segregated cycle track ends for a brief section of shared-use either side of the Carnoustie Place toucan crossing. But there are also parked cars on this shared footway.

New door-zone cycle lanes on West Street, including a zig-zag where the road changes width.

that didn't take long. Not pictured? Smashed up glass also in Glasgow's "bike lane" on St Andrews Dr @carsickglasgow http://t.co/Ro6ASj9Jyv

Green paint is a new addition to the construction of the #tradeston cycle route. http://t.co/ImPVhDsXU7

Yaaas! So great to use the cycle route on Shields road....oh, hang on @carsickglasgow @GlasgowCC http://t.co/df72yxvwHJ

Looking forward to the new cycle route on Shields Road ..... Oh, wait a minute ... http://t.co/MXQdcTD9T9
