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.

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]

As soon as the protected cycle lane finishes, the girl in #90598 goes onto the footway. And I don't blame her.

The junction before the start of the protected cycle lanes on Hamilton Road.

I'm not sure what the purpose of this cycle lane is.

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.

The Paisley Road protected cycletrack merges into a shared footway around the corner. The diagonal crossing is aligned for those going up and down West St, but has a signal facing anyone coming from Paisley Road, just in case someone wants ... [more]

A decaying cycle marking on Edinburgh Road. There is so much potential for a protected cycle facility along the full length of Edinburgh Road, but this is about all there is apart from some ASLs.

A new pinch-point in Oswald St to look out for cycling, which is also successful in trapping buses in the bus stop. And useless Advance Stop Line.

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

Right turn in two stages. Or play chicken with four lanes of traffic. #glasgowcycling https://t.co/HjgOdnKF7P [Ahead Only signs mean that right turn can only be made by the two-stage route.]

The end of the inexplicable and abandoned cycleway on Saracen Street (see also #83824). Are cyclists expected to bump the kerb and use the ASL feeder?

The Clyde Street cycleway approaching the George V Bridge crossing.

The Clyde Street cycleway approaching crossing across to Carlton Place.

I'm guessing that Jamaica Street will be resurfaced when the contraflow bus lane is abolished (and a new one is created in Midland Street). But in the meantime, some gas covers need attention, as does the dip at the stop line.

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]

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]

This narrow corner is going to be rebuilt as part of Glasgow City Council's cycle route along the south bank of the River Clyde. Update at #83027.

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.

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

Nothing but Advance Stop Lines on Cathcart Road.

A contraflow cycle lane on Cleland Street, but not Bedford Lane across the junction.

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.

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 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 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 shared-use cycleway just ends like this. How are you meant to return to the road?

The traffic signals on Candleriggs don't exempt cycles from their mandatory left and right turns, even though King Street ahead has a contraflow cycle lane. Location: Candleriggs, Glasgow (Scotland, United Kingdom)

In the foreground the bus/taxi/cycle only lane for the left turn into Govan Road towards Lorne Street. In the background the bus only Fastlink busway alongside Pacific Drive.

Everyone waiting while motor traffic is signalled through.

"Cyclists only" unless you run a takeaway. Cycle lights always blocked by 2 cars on Crow Rd #glasgowcycleinfraday t.co/EbylxBI1cp See also #64402 & #64403

Berkeley Street lights confusion. #glasgowcycleinfraday http://t.co/T9rHCRm7r8

It's been bad with people parking on double yellows in cycle lane, but this ridiculous. Right on pelican crossing. http://t.co/UbLSCBn9bT

Hemmed in and waiting again at the umpteenth red on Glasgow's segregated cycling #infrastructure #csconf14 http://t.co/TmTqxeKDXT

The Fastlink segregated bus road, for local buses only. No cycling allowed. NCN75 runs behind the wall on the right, along a shared-use path on the riverside, which becomes an obstacle course further along.

Better cycle lane signage might help people understand this is not a great place for a concrete block... #cyclehack http://t.co/R9XHW3j3KA

As #59263, new cycle signals replacing a toucan crossing at Charlotte Street, but they don't seem to go to green when the parallel pedestrian crossing is green and no conflicting movements are occurring. There is also a significant upsta ... [more]

New cycle signals replacing a toucan crossing at Charlotte Street, but they don't seem to go to green when the parallel pedestrian crossing is green and no conflicting movements are occurring.

Red light for pedestrian crossing on London Road.

The shared-use footway on this side of Aikenhead Road ends here, but without anything to tell users such as an End of Route sign, or even toucan crossings to assist in rejoining the carriageway at this fairly hostile road junction. Also, ... [more]

Needlessly narrow shared-use footway on Haggs Road at side road crossing. The pedestrian guard rails have all been covered with banners, meaning small children will be completely hidden from the view of drivers. The vertical bars in the low ... [more]

The Haggs Road shared-use footway crosses a side road at traffic signals, without pedestrian/cycle signal heads.

A pedestrian crossing with countdown to green man phase at busy city centre corner

Pedestrian countdown to green man phase, starting from 35 secounds, at busy city centre pedestrian crossing (but see photo #53706)

Of course, it's always cyclists that run red lights! Not.

The stop line for the traffic signals is in the foreground, but there is a "Wait Here" marking on the pedestrian crossing. UPDATE: #62829 shows the "Wait Here" has been removed, and the reason why.

Advance Stop Line at traffic signals, with only part coloured in, and no cycle logo.

Shortly before launch, the Connect2 cycle route in Waterloo St, Glasgow, with left turn for Blythswood St being directly into the Advance Stop Line box, in which there is a bus.

End of the dedicated cycle track, start of the shared-use footway, on Waterloo Street.

Contraflow cycle track on Elderslie Street, showing priority crossing of back lane, and in the distance, detector-activated cycle traffic signals at Sauchiehall Street junction.

End of King Street contraflow cycle lane. The traffic signals are automatic (not detector-activated) and change at the same time as the opposite side of the crossroads. Previous junction at #35689

Colleges Cycle Route direction sign approaching Broomhill Cross. Directions for cyclists turning left are given on the far side of the junction! Worn out cycle lane markings no longer visible.

Close-up of cycle signal in Crow Road at Broomhill Cross. Cycle signal goes green first while traffic opposite is turning right, and stays on through left turn filter and main green phases. However, cyclists not turning left should not use ... [more]

The second set of traffic signals on Crow Road approaching Broomhill Cross. There is a cycle lane and traffic signal on the inside for cyclists turning left into Clarence Drive. Cyclists going straight on must use Advance Stop Line outside ... [more]

The first set of traffic signals on Crow Road approaching Broomhill Cross. There is a cycle lane on the inside for cyclists turning left into Clarence Drive.

Cycle lane on Cowcaddens Road, on approach to West Nile St/Port Dundas Road junction. Narrow shared use footway on right is Colleges Cycle Route (see #34173).

The cycle lights on the two-way cycle track in this picture are for cyclists turning right ONLY. The left turn into the contraflow cycle lane on Elderslie Street (see #31114) is an unsignalled manoeuvre and traffic may be coming in conflict ... [more]

Glasgow's oldest advance stop lines - University Avenue at Byres Road - on Colleges Cycle Route UPDATE: Look what they did to it! #28165
