Since the inside of the carriageway was occupied with queuing traffic, the cyclist seen in #151391 had no option but to queue with the car traffic, and thus ended up missing the green light.Congestion:

Combined with the Sauchiehall Street cycleway and the one-way Woodside Place and Clairmont Gardens, this is now a fairly convenient westbound route from the city centre to Kelvingrove Park. The connections to and from the footbridge could be improved.
