Pop-up cycle lane on Hawthorn Street. At this point, it is a door-zone painted cycle lane next to marked car parking bays.

Shallow steps on the path from Ashvale Crescent to Cowlairs Road, on its way to run alongside the Springburn Expressway. There is a steeper flight of steps at Ashvale Crescent, so the only way to get to here step-free is from Carleston Stre ... [more]

A big flight of steps on the path from Hawthorn Street to Cowlairs Road, parallel to the Springburn Expressway.

Pop-up cycle lane on Hawthorn Street. This bus stop appears to have been forgotten for the bus boarder treatment. Hatching has been removed from the centre of the road to make room for the cycle lanes, which much improve safety for as lo ... [more]

Pop-up cycle lane on Hawthorn Street. At this point, the door-zone painted cycle lane (see #156185) leads into the remains of the original cycle lane in Hawthorn Street (see #25292), without addressing the problem of them being on the wrong ... [more]

Diversion signage for the Stockingfield canal path closure at Wyndford Drive. Still no dropped kerb for the path to Contin Place.

Permanent route signs and temporary diversion signs relating to the Stockingfield canal path closure, but who would know? The temporary diversion signs should be yellow. The canal towpath is open up to Stockingfield Junction, but only to ... [more]

Car parking as usual in the cycle lane at the modal filter in Shakespeare Street.

Quality HGV parking in the cycle lane at Tesco!

Insecure cycle parking outside the shop at Kirklee crossroads. There is a step down at the end of the paving slabs.

I think this is a "park in marked bays only" Controlled Parking Zone. Either way, the van is parked obstructing the cycle cut-through to Hyndland Street and the bollard isn't helping.

Light segregation installed on the Colleges Route cycle lanes in Clarence Drive. Again, a break in the armadillos for the pedestrian crossing, and a car illegally parked just before they resume.

Dislodged armadillos sitting in the gutter along with the leaves.

I know this is temporary, but I think more effort could be made to tidy up this transition between the South City Way cycle track and the road at the north end of Pollokshaws Road.

No action taken on the shockingly steep ramp at the bus boarder on the Balmore Road cycle track, and drainage still a problem too.

No action taken on the shockingly steep ramp at the bus boarder on the Balmore Road cycle track.

It may not be finished, but a dropped kerb at Panmure Gate would be nice. The path now leads to the Claypit Local Nature Reserve.

A couple of abandoned/damaged bikes at Partick station.

Ban all non blue badge vehicles from the park again. Too many cars, making it unpleasant for the now increased numbers of walkers and cyclists.

Three of four cars I saw in the woods at Cadder.

A total lack of cycle facilities on Govan Road at the Pacific Drive junction. On the right is an approach lane for the Fastlink busway on Pacific Drive.

The Govan Nextbike station has been closed due to persistent vandalism. SPT had been proposing allowing the facility to be relocated across the road to Govan Bus Station. www.spt.co.uk/documents/latest/rtp230617_agenda13.pdf

Incorrect signage and obstructive parking on the Burleigh Street contraflow cycle lane. Room for some cycle parking.

An abandoned section of street in Craigton at Barfillan Drive. This could be reworked into a cycle link connecting to the underpass through to Craigton Road and the Asda supermarket.

A Fire Path on Carsaig Drive, with no provision for cycling through (cycle access through road closures being Glasgow City Council policy).

The path through Craigton, from Drymen Street to Barfillan Drive, interrupted by a Fire Path on Carsaig Drive. No dropped kerbs for crossing the road. This path provides access to the M8 underpass through to Craigton Road and the Asda super ... [more]

A Fire Path in Drymen Street, with no provision for cycling through (although just about physically possible with a standard bicycle).

The dropped kerbs either side of the road closure on Morven Street don't align. I noticed this too late and came straight off of the high kerb. See #152275.

This looked like a good cycle exemption from a road closure, but the dropped kerbs on each side of the strip don't align. See #152276.

Morven Street is a 'No Through Road except cycles' but has no access from the westbound side of Paisley Road West.

Although it's hard to see in the photograph, a dip has formed in the speed table that makes it rather uneven for cycling across northbound, and potentially hazardous, so would be better getting fixed properly.

Vegetation encroaching onto path near Gower Street, and evidence of people going across the grass instead.

No dropped kerb at the end of MacLellan Street, at the path to Gower Street, although the kerb does get quite low nearer the fence.

It's clear here what the transport priorities are when there are steps at one side of this footbridge.

Once up the steps from Clifford Street, the rest of the motorway footbridge is step-free.

Shallow steps leading to motorway footbridge at Clifford Street that could be replaced by a proper ramp. The same problem as the other access at #152263.

Shallow steps leading to motorway footbridge at Clifford Street that could be replaced by a proper ramp. The same problem as the other access at #152264.

The surface of Lymburn Street is rather bumpy, with poorly relaid cobbles.

Scotrail please allow off peak trains to take tandems from Glasgow to Ardrossan Harbour, Gourock and Wymess Bay so disabled riders and their abled bodied partners are not distriminated against and can reach the islands.

When the 153 bike and bag cars are added to the trains please can tandems be allowed to enable disabled people and their partners to reach the highlands. Unable to get to Fort Willam by train currently as Scotrail ban tandems and therefore ... [more]

Please can Scotrail change their anti Tandem policies and allow them on the Inter7City trains which LNER did with exactly the same trains. Discriminates against disabled riders who have to ride with a partner.

Filtered permeability for pedestrians only in Dunard Street.

Filtered permeability for pedestrians only in Raglan Street.

A driver stopped on the Beith Street toucan crossing, which then changed to the pedestrian/cycle phase, and she is also using her phone.

A cyclist taking a short-cut away from the official crossing point on NCN 7, across the Riverside Museum approach road, despite having to bump the kerbs. There is a significant desire line evident in the grass.

Car parking partly blocking the dropped kerb for the cycle path access at Fore Street, also partly on the school zig-zag markings.

The shared-use footway on Archerhill Road crosses sides, from the wide footway to the narrow footway with a campervan parked on it, right at the end of the zig-zags for the toucan crossing and next to a junction.

Car parking by a professional driver on the shared-use footway on Archerhill Road.

Car parking in the pop-up cycle lane on Great Western Road.

Look at this guy just enjoying the new cycle lane installed on Bilsland Drive in Glasgow. Who cares about cyclist safety? Not this guy! What a tw*t!! 🤬🤬🚴🏻‍♀️ https://t.co/RJQ3Ud3b9S

One for you @UrbanistTOC 😠 t.co/7ge2Ygk40g [Car parking in the cycle lane in Corkerhill Road]

Bilsland Drive at the junction with Balmore Road, a short distance after the end of the pop-up cycle lane. Since the inside of the carriageway was occupied with queuing traffic, the cyclist seen in #151391 had no option but to queue with th ... [more]

The road is so busy with cars and many buses and there is no cycle path. I have seen 2 cyclists hit by cars in this area in the past month.

Wider pavement and stop pavement parking. Impossible for people with prams, wheelchairs or mobility issues to get passed cars and they have to walk on the roads

One of several nasty breaks in the asphalt on the path between Caldercuilt Road and Acre Road.

Bad tree root damage to the path between Campbell Street and Lochburn Road, and no access from Sandbank Drive where there is also a flytipping problem.

Despite the council providing cycle signage at the canal access path at Campbell Street, the nearest dropped kerb is someone's driveway.

No dropped kerb at Windsor Street/Windsor Terrace to get through to North Woodside Road at the Lidl supermarket.

Broken bollards and obstructive car parking in Clouston Street, where cycling through is permitted in the Traffic Regulation Order. The 'Keep Clear' road markings could do with being renewed.

A kerb to bump on the way from the Forth & Clyde Canal path access to the toucan crossing across Maryhill Road and path up towards Duncruin Street.

High traffic congestion, road space taken up by parked cars, no space for safe cycling. Remove permission to park alongside the road and convert the space into a well-spaced cycling lane.

Indiscriminate car parking in the Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane. Ideally, this section could be rebuilt, with the cycle lane going to the left of a new car parking layby where the cycle lane is.

The Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane. Some of the traffic cylinders were missing on this section.

The Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane at the turn-off for the canal path. Since the cycle lane stops at Lincoln Avenue, this is where many will leave it for the longer route to town along the canal path. The sign is obscured by tree bran ... [more]

The start of the Great Western Road cycle lane. The motorists have found somewhere else to park - on the footway.

No bus boarder at this bus stop, requiring anyone cycling to overtake stopped buses in the busy outside lanes. The cycle lane starts just after the bus stop.

No cycle lane on this section of Great Western Road, just arrows urging drivers to move out.

@GlasgowCC @SustransScot That's great! But why the parking spots just down the road before the British Linen Building? They have not been there before, there is no need and it generates a dangerous bottleneck between opening car doors on th ... [more]

Please dismount for the freshly laid 10 metres of straight tarmac that has recently been laid. What is this pointlessness? @GoBikeGlasgow https://t.co/q8wMpCpnXE

The advisory cycle lane in University Avenue changes to a mandatory cycle lane, but the double yellow lines stop.

A poor surface in the University Avenue cycle lane, and incursion by a car driver.

Nothing to warn NCN756 and West City Way users that there is a locked gate preventing egress from Kelvingrove Park ahead, and that the nearest way out is onto Kelvingrove Street to the right.

The signs say mandatory right turn, but the cycleway on Sauchiehall Street is two-way, so cycles should be exempted. The signs should also be 'mandatory right turn ahead' to diagram 609, due to their position in relation to the junction.

Messy obstructed cycleway on Douglas Street, with a totally inappropriate surface. Just like the one on Waterloo Street to the left (see #95475 and #95476).

The wet tyre tracks in the Gordon Street contraflow cycle lane reveal that some motorists are entering it in lieu of slowing down to make a tighter turn.

Social distancing measures being abused for convenient van parking.

I'm not sure some people understand what the red and white barrier indicates. George Square east shut to all vehicular traffic, including cycles, and possibly also applies to SUVs too. The car was driven out over the fancy stone footway ... [more]

Regular, not sporadic, enforcement of dbl yellows is needed on Spean St. This shared footway/cycle path is blocked daily by cars, SUVs, vans and lorries. 21 vehicles today. Zero space for people to social distance either. @GlasgowCC ple ... [more]

There is a gap in cycle provision here between Aikenhead Rd and Gorbals St. Traffic can be very heavy and cars race from one red light to the next. I am an experienced cyclist and find this short stretch of road intimidating. Ideally a seg ... [more]

The pop-up cycle lane on Great Western Road is to end at Lincoln Avenue. After that, there are just discontinuous peak hour bus lanes.

No provision for safe cycling on Duntreath Avenue.

The ramp at Glendinning Road is still steep and poorly surfaced. There's plenty of room here for a decent ramp to be built.

Glasgow cyclists, be very wary of the new cycle path at Mosspark Boulevard & Drumbrek Road, The removal of cones means cars are treating it as a left hand car lane. You could get hit by oncoming traffic https://t.co/HdESW6m0eK

The cycle paths here are not fit for purpose. There are always cars parked in them, there needs to be stricter enforcement to prevent this. The cycle paths also need to be wider and to be resurfaced.

Shallow steps on a path connecting Collina Street with the Forth & Clyde Canal and Maryhill Road.

No dropped kerb at the start of a path connecting Collina Street near new housing development to the Forth & Clyde Canal and Maryhill Road. The path is in poor condition and has some shallow steps in it too.

Better lighting for winter commute and safety.

Pavements on Dumbarton Road between Crow Road and Byres Road are not going to be wide enough for social distancing as increasing numbers of people come back to work: take back some of the street!

Eastern pavement of Crow Road very narrow at this point, probably only 1 m wide for about 30 or 40 m, hemmed in by metal fence on the edge of the pavement and hedge on the right of the pavement

@MCRCycleSam @RantyHighwayman @CyclingSurgeon @theJeremyVine I guess we should also factor in that you’ll have double deckers coming straight at nearly on the line... 😶 https://t.co/6dNqsRA9eY [See also #139326]

No cycle parking at shops in Kelvindale Road. I watched the owner of the bike in the foreground walk into the shop, and the owner of the bike across the road has just emerged from the shop.

The counter at the Anderston Bridge appears to have been abandoned.

Another view of the contraflow cycle lane on Argyle Street. The cycle lanes could easily have been painted with a smoother transition in road position. See also #139322.

The contraflow cycle lane on Argyle Street has an abrupt change of direction, following the kerb. See also #139324.

A contraflow cycle lane has been created on Argyle Street, but it is full of broken asphalt and dislodged stonework, and is nowhere near a smooth ride. With on-coming vehicles now in the centre of the carriageway (as in #139536), less oppor ... [more]

We asked for #SpaceForPeople, but we didn’t ask for skinny lanes, no segregation, and real life experience of the surface of the moon! We can do better! ☹️ https://t.co/dHxTevjhpx [See also #139536]

This is a very narrow stretch of the Kelvin walkway and with Inn Deep now offering a take away service the narrow path is overly clogged making passing safely very very difficult.

Popular walking and cycling route during lockdown. Currently used as rat run impacting safety of people distancing and cycling

This is a choke area, especially around the entrance and exit to the station. Also, novice cyclists are using this relatively narrow footpath, instead of using the road, even when safe to do so. The is an additional issue that whenever ther ... [more]
