The end of the pop-up two-way cycle lane on Royston Road. The cycle route continues around the corner to the right.

Start of the pop-up two-way cycle lane on Royston Road.

A faded cycle lane on Broomfield Road, at a pinch-point. It also leads into a chain of potholes at the bus stop.

The cyclist avoids the pavement cycle lane that the driver up ahead is in the process of parking in.

Answers on a postcard.

The cycle lanes on Wallacewell Road are now equipped with armadillos right along the length of the road. The traffic islands appear to be marked up for adjustments to make the cycle lane wider past the islands.

A pop-up cycle lane has been provided on Braidcraft Road, although the sign says it is a bus lane.

The unusual road sign on the Crossloan Road traffic island remains.

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 Howard Street contraflow cycle lane with orca protection. The traffic island here has been made less obstructive too.

Traffic island and bollard to help prevent left hooks on the Clyde Street pop-up cycle lane.

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

I was surprised to see this Scottish Canals branded route sign after the turn for Shakespeare Street, but it turns out it is part of a signed diversion due to the Stockingfield canal path closure, so it should be yellow. The diversion appro ... [more]

Route signs for the Seven Lochs Trail at Avenue End Road. The path connection across the other side is not so great, but the signs point the way into Hogganfield Park.

Route signs for the Seven Lochs Trail at Avenue End Road.

Crossing point at Raeswood Road.

The new cycleway alongside St Rollox Drive, the new road along the northern edge of the Sighthill redevelopment.

The Drumchapel Way meets The Antonine Road. Glasgow City Council's GIS system shows a path (called Drumry Wood) across the site across the road, even though it is securely fenced off.

A cycle lane designed for car parking. Let's not pretend this is designed for cycling.

What's that rule about not parking within so many metres of a junction? A car parked blocking entrance to the cycle track, so that it becomes easier to go around the other side of the traffic island to get to Lorne Street.

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]

There are no route signs visible at the Colleges Cycle Route turn from St Mungo Avenue towards North Hanover Street.

A right turn cycle lane for avoiding the roundabout when going into the end section of Nithsdale Road or turning into Moray Place, but could do with some cycle markings and an 'except cycles' plate below the 'No Right Turn' sign.

Barriers across the cycle path to Silverburn, to stop people going straight out onto the road where drivers can't even avoid hitting the signs. Again, no traffic control to help people cross the road, just a traffic island.

It's not easy to cross this busy crossing of the Silverburn Shopping Centre entrance road, but there's only a traffic island to help.

Uncontrolled pedestrian crossing next to the Forge Retail Park's service access (see #89948) and on the left the path through Bellgrove.

The width restriction shown in #88851, and also showing the massive over-capacity of Edinburgh Road.

Traffic calming by width restrictions that force motorists to slow right down when leaving Edinburgh Road, and prevent wider vehicles using the local roads as a rat-run.

An 'End of Cycle Route' sign approaching the Northgate Road roundabout, but now the cycle route continues along to the end of Wallacewell Road. I don't know why the traffic island encroaches into the cycle lane.

Preparations have been made on Blythswood St for the contraflow cycle lane, but signage and lining has still to be done. On the near side of the junction dropped kerbs have been installed to allow cycling over the footway, unlike the far si ... [more]

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

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.

I can't think that these islands serve any practical purpose at all… too costly to remove? #GlasgowCycleInfraday t.co/3mKvKrX7I0

A bicycle parked part of the way up a 'keep left' sign on a traffic island.

An extremely narrow central traffic island at a pedestrian crossing in New Rutherglen Road.

A pedestrian crossing on New Rutherglen Road. With hindsight, I wonder whether the cycle route crossed the road at the Polmadie Road junction where there was a toucan crossing and not this crossing where the central island is tiny (see #585 ... [more]

Traffic-calming by chicane. Cars parked everywhere.

King Street contraflow cycle lane. The traffic islands at junctions are a bit in the way! Next junction at #35690
