90027Photo #90027A mix of proper and homemade signs at the point where NCN7 turns to leave the Glasgow Harbour development, some of them making more sense than others. If someone cycling to the Clyde Tunnel or Victoria Park follows the green sign, they will find themselves on Dumbarton Road and the busy and large Thornwood Roundabout. It makes more sense to head west along NCN7 and cut through one of the side streets.Route sign:

The toucan crossings do not connect anywhere where it is legal to cycle other than the carriageway. The crossings are barriered off making it difficult to use the bus service for the people of Swinton who will have to walk to the other side of Baillieston Crossroads to catch a bus.Roadworks:

89015Photo #89015Despite the footway of the A89 not allowing cycling, and despite this crossing leading to nothing but a bus stop that does not have any bus services carrying bikes, a toucan crossing has been installed across Coatbridge Road. Does this come from the cycling budget and is it counted in the claimed mileage of cycleways for the M8 motorway project?

There is a wider view at #89019.
