"Park only in marked bays" on Kelvin Way.

The closure at the eastern end of Overnewton Street does not provide for through cycling, the cycle parking stands are past their best, and the driver on Haugh Road has no respect for the road markings.

The cycle off-slip at Finnieston Street allows cyclists to legally leave the carriageway and use the toucan crossing across Lancefield Quay to get to the National Cycle Network route 75, even when the traffic signals are on red. The similar ... [more]

The one remaining cycle off-slip at the Finnieston Street/Clyde Arc junction. The one at #173654 has been blocked off with a railing.

Waiting on red.

The traffic signals poles have been damaged.

The first sign that the Benalder Street/Beith Street junction is going to be signalised, but no clues as to how the cycle track ending here will be tied into this. The dropped kerb and crossing studs have not deterred these selfish drive ... [more]

Van parking in the cycle lane on Crow Road at Broomhill Cross. Location: Broomhill, Glasgow (Scotland, United Kingdom)

Another day, another dismount sign https://t.co/TEQEDLgAUW

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.

The ramp seen in #172741 leads users over a kerb when joining the Garscube Road cycleway.

The tie-in between the bottom of the new ramp down from the Forth and Clyde Canal to Garscube Road is poor. A kerb blocks the entrance to the ramp from Firhill Road and a ramp has been provided facing Firhill Road but this appears to be for ... [more]

The pop-up two-way cycle lane on Royston Road. approaching the Broomfield Road junction. The cycle signals are on green during both general traffic phases, so any turns from the cycleway are not protected.

The pop-up two-way cycle lane on Royston Road approaching the Broomfield Road junction. Note that the cycle traffic signals are green at the same time as traffic is exiting Broomfield Road. The cycle lights were green during both general tr ... [more]

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]

The end of the two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road. It just ends.

The Garscube Road cycle track is now open for business! Although the elephants feet crossing indicates to cross to Hinshaw Street, there are no turning restrictions, so it is possible to also continue along Garscube Road or head up Firhi ... [more]

The Garscube Road cycle track is now open for business!

No right turns from Dumbreck Road into Paisley Road West, just like the opposite side of the junction at #170596.

The pedestrian crossings form part of the original Glasgow to Paisley cycle route, opened by Cllr Charlie Gordon back in 1993. This section is part of one of the many 'Cyclists Dismount' sections, and it remains so to this day. Nowadays, ... [more]

No right turns from Broomloan Road onto Paisley Road West, principally to keep the car traffic moving faster.

Is this still the most appropriate layout for this junction, given the change of priorities and connectivity at the other nearby junctions in recent years?

Parking on the footway, driving in the hatching. The rules of the road have broken down. Just beyond the van is a dropped kerb, before the traffic signals, that allows access to the footway in order to use the toucan crossing across to t ... [more]

No provision for cycling through the closure of Victoria Park Drive South at Westland Drive. A dropped kerb and toucan crossings at the junction signals would probably suffice.

This is pretty much the full length of the Hinshaw Street cycleway. It ends at the Maltbarns Street junction.

A short section of cycleway in Hinshaw Street feeds into the cycleway in Garscube Road.

The start of the Garscube Road cycleway, seen coming from the Queens Cross direction. Next time I'll try going between the first and second bollards rather than the second and third which was quite tight.

The end of the Garscube Road cycleway, but there is a short length of cycleway to the left in Hinshaw Street. Construction is underway to the right, of a new ramp for access to the Forth & Clyde Canal. See update at #171178.

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

The North Canal Bank Street cycleway joins to a cycleway along part of Craighall Road, but the cycleway swaps to having the cycle side on the opposite side of footway. I'm guessing that this isn't complete and the traffic signals will be re ... [more]

A short cycle lane approaching traffic signals on St Andrew's Drive.

The Dumbreck Road/St Andrew's Drive/Titwood Road/Haggs Road junction outside Pollok Country Park. No sign of the proposed pop-up cycle route on St Andrew's Drive yet.

Pavement parking in Cogan Road, outside a huge free car park at the retail park. The Advance Stop Line is the only concession to cycling on this road.

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]

The cycle filter at the end of Dargarvel Avenue has a signal since the junction of Dumbreck Road and Dumbreck Avenue is signalised. However, the gaps are not best aligned for movements straight across the junction.

A filter lane removed and replaced by a protected cycle lane, on Provanmill Road at Royston Road.

The end of the protected section of cycle lane on Cumbernauld Road, where the Cumbernauld to Glasgow cycle route turns right onto Provanmill Road. The sign is of a non-standard pattern. The carriageway goes from one to three lanes for mo ... [more]

The northbound South City Way cycle track is now operating at the Cumberland Street junction, but the southbound is closed off awaiting the installation of the two-way cycle track in Gorbals Street. The junction is marked as being for "a ... [more]

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.

An advance green has been provided for cycling into the protected cycle route straight ahead on Cambridge Street.

The on-road option for cycling from Aikenhead Road onto Polmadie Road. A central cycle lane has been provided between the left-turn filter lane and the ahead lane for motor traffic.

The person seen in #168687 gets frustrated at the lack of green signal on the cycle track and moves into the main carriageway to cross St Vincent Street legally on the Elderslie Street green.

Lack of cycle priority at cycle traffic signals on Elderslie Street. This person was already waiting as I arrived, when traffic on St Vincent Street had the green. See also #168688.

The new layout in Cambridge Street. A two-way cycle track has been provided between the underpass from Dundasvale Road to the Renfrew Street junction. The cycle track ends at the Renfrew Street junction at a low-level cycle traffic signa ... [more]

Damaged cycle parking stands on Jamaica Street. The "except buses, taxis & cycles" sign on the traffic signal is obscured by a sticker.

South City Way at junction of Victoria Road and Allison Street.

The connection from Calder Street into the South City Way on Victoria Road. See also #167147.

South City Way at junction of Victoria Road and Calder Street.

The South City Way taking shape at the Cumberland Street junction.

The Howard Street contraflow cycle lane now has some protection from orcas, but some motorists still find ways to block it. Enforcement action seems to be missing. The traffic signals have "except cycles" signs, but no prohibition or man ... [more]

Oswald Street bus gate, helping to filter city centre traffic. But taxi driver stops forward even of the Advance Stop Line.

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

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.

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]

Pop-up cycle lane on Hawthorn Street. At each of the signal-controlled junctions, the inside lane reverts to motoring use.

Insecure cycle parking outside the shop at Kirklee crossroads. There is a step down at the end of the paving slabs.

The protected cycle lane on Victoria Bridge and the narrow painted lane it replaced.

I know this is temporary, but I think more effort could be made to tidy up this transition between the South City Way cycle track and the road at the north end of Pollokshaws Road.

A total lack of cycle facilities on Govan Road at the Pacific Drive junction. On the right is an approach lane for the Fastlink busway on Pacific Drive.

Bilsland Drive at the junction with Balmore Road, a short distance after the end of the pop-up cycle lane. Since the inside of the carriageway was occupied with queuing traffic, the cyclist seen in #151391 had no option but to queue with th ... [more]

The Hope Street contraflow cycle lane, part of the West City Way, and leading to the Waterloo Street protected cycle lane.

The pop-up contraflow cycle lane in Gordon Street, outside Central Station. The temporary 'One Way' signs are incorrect.

The pop-up contraflow cycle lane in Gordon Street, signed with temporary 'No Entry' signs, one of which has an 'except cyclists' plate below it, in place of the more usual 'except cycles'. The usual 'No Motor Vehicles' signs have been cover ... [more]

The junction of Renfield Street and Gordon Street, with the Union Street bus gate ahead, and the pop-up contraflow cycle lane on Gordon Street to the right. Proper 'No Right Turn except cycles' signs have been used on the traffic signals, w ... [more]

Kelvin Way closed to motor traffic to allow more room for walking and cycling. Nothing to say that the road closure is exempting cycles, but people seem to have got the message regardless. Unusually, one of the parking bays extends into ... [more]

A pop-up contraflow cycle lane has been installed on Argyle Street under Central Station, and other westbound traffic eliminated, in order to provide more space for pedestrians on the opposite footway. Temporary 'No Entry' signs have been p ... [more]

The pop-up contraflow cycle lane on Argyle Street at Central Station has been provided with temporary 'No Entry' signs on Argyle Street and proper 'No Right Turn except cycles' signs on the traffic signals on Union Street.

Pedestrians aren't meant to use the north side of the gyratory at the Hydro, and it isn't much more suitable for cycling either. There used to be a direct underpass link towards the SECC here, but it was filled in when the gyratory was b ... [more]

The end of the Fastlink busway on Anderston Quay, and in the distance, the recommencement of the popup cycle lane. The traffic signals detected my approach, and are quick to change.

Caught out by the road markings, or a change of mind when the traffic signals changed? The sign reads "Cyclists use Fastlink Carriageway", and a tiny "& cycle symbol" added amidst the "Bus Only" wording.

London Road cycle track.

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.

The straight across access from the Berryknowes Road flats to Kingsland Drive (see also #112402) has been blocked off, including to cycles. The turning head is used for fly car parking.

The straight across access from Kingsland Drive into the road in front of the Berryknowes Road flats has been closed off, without exempting cycles.

The footway markings on Leverndale Road end into an Advance Stop Line at the Crookston Road junction. There is no cycle provision on the main road. If there is moving traffic, this layout means cyclists waiting until the lights turn red ... [more]

Cycle lanes approaching the Crookston Road junction.

A tiny notice explaining how Advance Stop Lines work to drivers. I can't imagine many notice this, or take the time to read it.

Crookston shops on Barrhead Road.

I waited 4 sequences of Argyle st/ Jamaica st🚦- this remained red (having dodged a taxi who’d pulled in and parked on the cycle lane). We simply won’t shift people to cycling if even the limited infrastructure doesn’t work @Glasgow ... [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 Advance Stop Line box has acquired a stop line across the cycle lane too.

The new cycleway on Lincoln Avenue. If you don't want to turn left into Archerhill Road you need to leave the cycleway, but there's nothing to say this.

The new cycle track in Archerhill Road turns right into Lincoln Avenue.

The new cycle track on Archerhill Road turns into Lincoln Avenue and is no use for getting to Knightswood Cross or Anniesland.

The road layout at the Govan Road/Golspie St junction due to the Fastlink busway. Not particularly cycle friendly.

Behind me is a shared-use footway sign. Across the junction and to the right is an "End of Cycle Route" sign. Are they related? Is this shared-use footway nothing to do with the one a little distance along Govan Road at #99434? But still th ... [more]

The footway across the far side of the junction is shared use, but the crossing is for pedestrians only. But the previous shared-use sign was back at #99434. Is this one continuous route or two unrelated shared-use footways? The drainage ... [more]

A funders' sign for whatever aspect of this road layout they wish to trumpet about. Fastlink maybe or the cycle route? There isn't any sign to say whether or not the footway here is shared use. There was a sign at #99434 and there's one jus ... [more]

Although there are items of cycling paraphernalia back at Carnoustie Street and at Houston Street, this crossing is not a toucan crossing on the path in between the two locations. The space on the central reservation is somewhat restrict ... [more]

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]

The contraflow lane on Gordon Street, with a cargobike and a hire bike in use.

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.

The proposed cycleway for Jura Street will be on the left side, and end at a toucan crossing across Paisley Road West to Bellahouston Park. So this door-zone cycle lane will be removed.

New red cycle lights and low level miniature lights on the Argyle Street contraflow lane.

The roundabout now includes a shortcut for Fastlink buses only. No cycling through this! Also, the traffic signals for the bus gate have been replaced by a Give Way.

Waiting for the lights in Elderslie Street.

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.

As part of the bus priority, buses are allowed to turn right (into the bus station) from the left-hand lane, but the traffic signals all along the Fastlink route do not seem to change with the approach of buses.
