113230Photo #113230With the dropped kerb on the right, the cycle track connecting North Woodside Road to Hopehill Road/Maryhill Road junction is blocked by the hire bike. Weaving around the hire bike thus becomes necessary, when having the dropped kerb in the middle would have avoided this.

But the Connecting Woodside project will (eventually) reconfigure this area. (See also #113074.)

113114Photo #113114An old railway track alongside the A752 at Drumpellier Country Park, which would make a better route for the Seven Lochs Trail than the footway of the A752.

This area will be rearranged as part of the Connecting Woodside project, but at the moment any ebikes placed in the stands (as in #113230) would be obstructing the footway, and due to the location of the dropped kerb also the cycle cut-through (the faded markings for which can just be seen).

Not the first time a bike hire station has been positioned in the way of a cycle track, see #92632.
