142827Photo #142827There is a gap in cycle provision here between Aikenhead Rd and Gorbals St. Traffic can be very heavy and cars race from one red light to the next. I am an experienced cyclist and find this short stretch of road intimidating. Ideally a segregated cycle path would be good, but a shared pavement would possibly helpCycleway:

139312Photo #139312A contraflow cycle lane has been created on Argyle Street, but it is full of broken asphalt and dislodged stonework, and is nowhere near a smooth ride. With on-coming vehicles now in the centre of the carriageway (as in #139536), less opportunity to move out and avoid the bumps.

The cycle parking is also damaged.

The person riding through the layby had cycled on the footway. The cycle lane is also in the door-zone for the layby.

133142Photo #133142Unclear priorities for buses and cyclists in bus lane merging with general lane. Narrow footpaths cannot be shared by pedestrians and cyclists. Unpleasant for pedestrians in any case as you have to walk very close to sometimes fast traffic. At commuting times a lot of cars race through unsafely fast if they perceive a gap. Easy win would be a 20mph local speed limit, maybe speed bumps, and clearer priorities for merging. In an ideal world where active travel was put first wider footpath and stepped cyclepaths in both directions on the correct sides of the road, with traffic light to control motor vehicle access turn-about.Cycleway:
Problem
cycleways
133125Photo #133125The shared use footpath on the side of the road narrows at bus stops (the very place bus users quite naturally congregate!) making social distancing of pedestrians and cyclist impossible even if just passing, let alone if people waiting for a bus. And pre/post-Covid was /is a colision risk area and dirupts/slows the journeys of walkers, bus users of cyclists. The alternative Kelvin path is similarly not realistic for social distancing and in winter is unsafe as dark and isolated. Combined these factor forces cyclists onto the 50mph dual carriageway and strengthens the case for redesign of this significant length for accomodation of active travel in both East Dunbartonshire and Glasgow City Council areas. (On a personal note the sad cliche is that me a regular cyclist male will risk the 50mph road, but my more occasional cyclist wife never would in its current form). Between Canniesburn Toll and Marhyill station at least there is clearly enough room for wide footpaths, segreagated cycleways each on the correct side of the road and still a bus lane and a normal lane. Remove the unnecessarily high 40 & 50mph limits and replace them with 30mph and no central reservations. For drivers this should be an experience of driving in a city, not a bizaare short fast dual carriageway.Cycleway:

133117Photo #133117Segregated cylecway on the Switchback Road between The Garscube Estate and Old Crow Road. There is nearly a safe-feeling north-south route for walking and cycling between Anniesland High St, Anniesland station, Morrisons etc to the south, and southern Bearsden and the Garscube Estate (which is an employment centre) to the north. However there is an unsafe and unpleasant piece in the middle for both walkers and cyclists of the A739. The footpath although wide is cambered towards the road, has a poor surface and traffic regularly speeds faster than the 30mph limit (more often than not going 40mph on the 30mph stretch and 50mph on the 40mph stretch). Cycling on this road or footpath does not feel safe. Neither does walking. This is a key missing link and an opportunity to reduce car use down the Switchback corridor to Anniesland cross.Cycleway:
