A stepped two-way cycle track is being built along part of Govan Road, but the footway has been reduced to a minimal width, resulting in people walking on the cycle track. An extra metre could easily have been taken off the road, which at this point is buses, taxis and cycles only, with no regular bus routes now passing through.

94587Photo #94587Building works at Partick Bus Station have meant that the point where cyclists join Merkland St carriageway has now been closed, and cyclists are forced to share a narrow footway already obstructed by (unrelated) scaffolding.

However, there is a set of gates in the railing (next to the SPT person) and these could be left open to rectify the issue. I suggested this to the SPT person who said he would raise it with his superiors. It would also help stranded pedestrians, such as the one seen on the carriageway here, join the footway.
