99488Photo #99488A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The route crosses sides here at this new toucan crossing. Maybe they'll put in some cycle parking for the shops before they are finished.

Quite a short length of zig-zags approaching this crossing.

99437Photo #99437Behind 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 the crossing should be a toucan crossing to permit cycling onto Whitefield Road.Cycleway:

99436Photo #99436The 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 appears to have issues.

99435Photo #99435A 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 just visible across the far side of the junction on the right. But is it shared use here?

Also note how the coach has its offside wheel on the lane line but is only just outside the on-road cycle lane leading to the advance stop line.

99434Photo #99434The Govan Road shared-use footway crosses sides here, although there is only the presence of a toucan crossing as a clue. As always, the asphalt does not provide a direct route to the crossing, and as the wear on the grass shows people are walking (and perhaps cycling) over the grass.Cycleway:

The route via the existing series of toucan crossings (one of which is visible to the left of the picture) is completely inadequate. (The complete chain of toucans is shown in #87024.)
