The kind of dropped kerb that really needs nibbed to protect it from car parking. The kerb across the road is completely blocked. On this side of Holmfauldhead Place a shared-use footway has been created between this dropped kerb and the ... [more]

Access between Elder Park and Drive Road hindered by a railing, yet signed (in tiny writing) for cycling.

Road closures either end of an abandoned section of road in Craigton. It may suit formal conversion into a park, and there is already a small park the other side of Carsaig Drive.

A road closure with just a dropped (fallen) kerb at the side to enable cycle access. Needs formalised with a proper exemption.

More cars parked in the Cardonald Place Road contraflow cycle lane. When I got to the traffic signals, I waited for two pedestrian phases and still the cycle phase did not happen.

Old barriers still blocking footbridge over White Cart, now part of the Cardonald Quietway.

The Hurlet junction is arranged for the convenience of motorists at the expense of all other road users.

The A726 dual carriageway approaching the Hurlet junction.

The A726 dual carriageway approaching the Hurlet.

A poor transition between one section of riverside path and another, which could be made much smoother to allow users to concentrate on not hitting the posts instead.

The White Cart path meets Crookston Road. The signs have vanished from the signpost.

Pavement parking just after NCN7 and NCN75 turn into Rosshall Park. This is right next to a car park!

A poor change of surface on the path from Crookston Road into Rosshall Park.

A terrible change of surface on the path from Rosshall Park to Crookston Road. Mind how you go!

A complete lack of signage at the turn in the Glasgow-Paisley cycle route, although the route ahead links to the same place if you know where you are going.

A complete lack of signage, save for some dilapidated Sustrans stickers, at the left turn into Rosshall Park.

The path between Rosshall Park and Cardonald Drive, on the original Glasgow-Paisley cycle route, is divided in two by a central railing for the section over the railway bridge, making it difficult to pass people coming the other way.

The path between Rosshall Park and Cardonald Drive on the original Glasgow-Paisley cycle route is not only narrow but is divided in two by a central railing, making it very difficult to pass anyone coming the other way. The sign has also co ... [more]

In addition to the obstructive railing and poorly positioned dropped kerb, the poorly placed signage has completely faded out.

A 'cycles only' sign halfway along Cardonald Drive. Not complied with or enforced.

A private hire car parked on double yellow lines, in a contraflow cycle lane, and partly on the footway.

Allanton Drive is on the Govan-Cardonald Quietway, but which way do you turn at the next junction. The sign with the tiny writing at the junction says, but it can't be seen when you need to select your lane position.

No dropped kerb at the south side of the toucan crossing seen in #112196, for access to the crossing from a network of low-traffic back-streets.

Now that the cabins are away and the street has returned to normal, it appears that nothing was done to improve cycle permeability. There is an off-centre dropped kerb, but the 'No Entry' signs prohibit cycle movements across the road closu ... [more]

As I've mentioned before (see #107159), this is listed in Glasgow City Council's database of cycle routes.

On the left, the Garscadden Way, leading to the Drumchapel Way, and on the right, the path through to Annan Drive. Both could do with some proper path building works.

The new road layout at the junction of Fountainwell Road and St Rollox Drive does not include a connection to the new cycleway. The speed of some of the traffic on the new road seemed quite high.

A 'No Cycling' sign on the path that now leads to the cycleway adjacent to St Rollox Drive.

The new cycleway along St Rollox Drive leads onto this footway which has not been upgraded. It is obstructed ahead by utilities work and the only way onto the road is across the grass. There's also a 'No Cycling' sign on the back of the ... [more]

The junction of Fountainwell Road and St Rollox Drive, seen from the old footpath along the edge of Sighthill Cemetery. The start of the cycleway can be seen, and this is the only access.

Effectively the end of the new cycleway alongside St Rollox Drive, with no way back onto the road and only a connection to the old footpath.

Was I imaging in #107165 that this path was being upgraded?

A flooded pothole on the path away from the Donald Dewar Sports Centre in Drumchapel.

When Drumry Road East was first closed off at the Great Western Road roundabout, the traffic order exempted cycles from the closure. But nothing was done to facilitate cycle access, and even now that there is a shared-use footway on the oth ... [more]

Motorists https://t.co/RlUC4vkbkj

After huge @GlasgowCC investment in active travel and purpose built cycle path on Sauchiehall Street, its now being used by @Treatzdessert as A-board site 😔 Right in the middle of cycle path! It's ok to advertise, but be a lil more consi ... [more]

The cycle parking at Cardonald station has been positioned so close to the walls the end stand is basically unusable, while the others won't support the bikes very well when only one end of the bike is on the stand. But I'm not sure I'd lea ... [more]

Faded route signs pointing in random directions.

Thank you Glasgow City Council for building new cycle lanes on Victoria Road. Is there anyway you could stop vehicles using them as parking spaces? @GlasgowCC @Chris_Boardman @chrishoy @policescotland https://t.co/RBjTJ77OXk

This is a housing apartment, and has a private car park, but no cycle park. I have seen many people keep their cycles inside the flat, including me. It is stressful to bring cycle up and down the flat from different floors, and if there was ... [more]

Barriers too close and no drop kerb. Worn grass shows desire line. A bit of a shame but ramp is still useful to link Rigby Street to Rigby Crescent and avoid traffic on Shettleston Road.

@helenpidd Howard Street in central Glasgow. A bike lane that goes against the flow of traffic. But it’s just a car park lane and taxi drop off. Yesterday there was more car than bike lane visible... If you ride it you’re forced into th ... [more]

@GoBikeGlasgow University Avenue this week : a @GlasgowCC cycle route @UofGlasgow what about the #vulnerableroaduser https://t.co/LdiKcc19HS

Can “security” vans stop where ever they like? This guy claims he can, while doing so he is blocking access to Gordon St counter-way cycle lane. @GlasgowCC @polscotrpu ?? https://t.co/EcNWYhbFIf

@cyclestreets Spean St, Glasgow - the pedestrian/cycle path is effectively just a residents' car park. @SustransScot @citycyclists @GoBikeGlasgow @LStreetsScot and while I am here > @StewartMcDonald @glasgowc @MMorganSNP @policescotland ... [more]

Glasgow City Council is planning some work to fix this retaining wall on the Kelvin Walkway.

This fencing has been obstructing the access to the Sighthill motorway foot and cycle bridge for some time, even though the bridge is for now still open. The fencing appears to be being used to create nothing more than a contractor's parkin ... [more]

Obstructive car and van parking on Striven Gardens.

I thought I could get through on the left at Striven Gardens, but see #108225.

@theenvtaskforce @TrothBen @aglasgowcyclist @jrothwell @CityWestminster @GlasgowCC @CycleInfraDay @GoBikeGlasgow @AnnaLangside @ChristyMearns @johned @magnatom Still the same https://t.co/gMBW79b7e7

Hey @networkrail I know you guys think you are special and can park anywhere, but you cant. This is a segregated bike lane that your vehicle is parked in, the SCW, Pollokshaws Road, one of the few in Glasgow. Get it moved. @GlasgowCC @AnnaL ... [more]

Obstructive pavement parking on the shared-use footway on Dalsholm Road between the Garscube Estate path and the Kelvin Walkway, forcing riders onto the crumbling carriageway. There is a free car park at the top of the hill in the backgroun ... [more]

Commercial van parking in the painted cycle lane on Port Dundas Road.

2/4 Others have discussed the left hook risk to cyclists at the Devon St junction @GoBikeGlasgow eg https://t.co/hsiql8duc7. Today I was nearly left-hooked by a council vehicle overtaking and turning in front of me into Torrisdale St. The ... [more]

There is an unmarked speed hump either side of the Cleveden Road bridge on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, which are quite hard to spot if you don't know they are there.

A connection between Netherton Road and the Forth & Clyde Canal, with damaged sign, mud, and a chicane barrier.

I'm sure a better entrance to this path could be built at Knightscliffe Avenue. The plot to the left was only recently rebuilt.

The road markings on part of Alderman Road have been renewed, including a buffer strip between the parking bays and the cycle lane, but there's really no point in painting it less than the width of a car away from the kerb.

A gate across Monymusk Place, on the Drumchapel Way and Garscadden Way. The Garscadden Wood path starts on the right a short distance beyond the gate.

A poor end to the footway from The Antonine Road at the Goals access road, part of the Drumchapel Way signed walking route.

A poor quality shared-use footway on Halgreen Avenue. The other side of the road doesn't even have a footway, even though it is outside a school!

There were no signs for the Drumchapel Way at the junctions at either end of Hecla Avenue, only this one midway along the street.

Poor condition asphalt path and damaged marker post on the Drumchapel Way.

The optimist in me wants to believe that this section of the Drumchapel Way path is currently being upgraded.

The winter has taken its toll on the Garscadden Way. This is listed as an official cycle route in the council's GIS system at https://glasgowgis.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=0a599fa51e3d4460a615653700769bf7

The path across to the Garscadden Way blocked by fallen branches, but will anyone notice there's a path to be blocked?

Painted cycle lanes don’t work, especially if the council just keeps turning a blind eye to those who abuse it. I tried to speak to the guy in the car and ask why he thought it was okay for him to park there, no response. @GoBikeGlasgow ... [more]

Absolutely perfect timing. @GoBikeGlasgow @UofGsustain @PeopleByresRoad #paintIsNotProtection https://t.co/LENi1rbIkA

People could make Glasgow tidier!

The abandoned bike still blocking part of the Maryhill Tesco cycle parking stand, leaving little space for intending customers.

Paint is not protection @PeopleByresRoad @UofGsustain https://t.co/BF102sqsik

@morebikesplease @PeopleByresRoad @UofGsustain Here was two weeks ago. It's almost like there's a pattern...! Just shows the lack of consideration given to cycle infra that paint is even considered an option here. Anyone who uses the road r ... [more]

It is days like today that highlight how car centric Glasgow is. Almost 50% of Glaswegians don't have access to a private car. While the roads were ice free, the paths were like ice rinks. #activetravel #travelpoverty https://t.co/vhkNFMcgc ... [more]

@RoyalMail when will you instruct your drivers that bike lanes and especially fully segregated ones are not for parking, especially when options are available? South West City Way segregated lane in Glasgow @GlasgowCC https://t.co/MZYDmZ8We ... [more]

This type of infra is excellent but will be wasted money unless protective measures are included too. @GlasgowCC @collin_little @GoBikeGlasgow https://t.co/QRSaqPbHhQ

Look, I know it's shit infrastructure, just a bit of paint, but there's multistorey and surface car parking within a couple of hundred metres. I have to cycle against the flow of motorised traffic because you're a selfish twat. Thanks. ... [more]

Glasgow's joined up infra as it transitions from segregated to 'shared with pedestrians'. A pole and a parked van. Nice. https://t.co/I1zYIvWeLB

I waited 4 sequences of Argyle st/ Jamaica st🚦- this remained red (having dodged a taxi who’d pulled in and parked on the cycle lane). We simply won’t shift people to cycling if even the limited infrastructure doesn’t work @Glasgow ... [more]

They're still at it @AnnaLangside @GoBikeGlasgow @GlasgowCC Really think the segregation needs to be more substantial https://t.co/08xkctm49Z

How am I supposed safely cycle up this street if cars are parked in the contraflow cycle lane, forcing me into on coming traffic? @GlasgowCC @AnnaLangside https://t.co/jcbx6GVDyv

Superb example of inappropriate pavement parking and encroachment onto a roundabout from the ever inconsiderate @ArnoldClark @ACHelpTeam It’s no wonder the concrete is sinking. @BadParkersUK https://t.co/TFDuYXL0qv

I'm not sure what the barriers here are meant to achieve, or why they are blocking the flagship cycleway on Waterloo Street.

@magnatom @GlasgowCC @AnnaLangside @GoBikeGlasgow We took this photo & plan to write to council. Why not 'please take care through roadworks and show respect to workers & fellow road users'? Feel free to use photo if you like. https://t.co/ ... [more]

@GoBikeGlasgow constant parking in front of the cycle path at bottom of Corrour Road in Newlands. Happening everyday. Double yellow lines and cycle path paint worn away https://t.co/ubCvvYCEfB

Obstructive parking in Craigton Road, next to a partially empty ASDA car park.

@TrothBen @CycleInfraDay @Fenmonkey @bencooper Here is my trike on the bridge. Not much room for anyone coming the other way. https://t.co/19Afh1W4Gc

Entitled driver's reaction to #carfreeday https://t.co/E6vXC6RfX1

I was surprised to see this sign at the newly rebuilt Partick Bus Station. The pedestrian crossing around the corner has been removed. Non-bus traffic has to use this lane past Partick Bus Station, but a left turn is required to get to t ... [more]

A solitary sign outside the chip shop declares that the footway on this section of James Street is shared-use. Leads to #33490.

Precisely no-one ends their journey here, so why does the cycle lane end here?

According to Network Rail, the railway bridge on Muirhead Road has been "rebuilt stronger and wider to enable two-way traffic, cycle route and pedestrian footpath". I don't see a cycle route. https://www.networkrailmediacentre.co.uk/news ... [more]

A new path has been provided around house-building works, but has been blocked by fallen security fences.

Aaaand once again @GlasgowCC have allowed the shared path from Pollokshaws to Silverburn beside Barrhead Road to be blocked by works. @PersimmonHomes do you realise this route is for cyclists too and that many bikes are a lot wider than tha ... [more]

Maryhill Tesco cycle parking regularly full up, unlike the massive car park which always has lots of free spaces.

Who would possibly want to lock a bike outside a bookmaker's?

No bicycle parking at the Thornwood Roundabout and absolutely no room for any either!

The connection to NCN7 at Sandholm Terrace is formed with horrible concrete blocks with gaps in between.

If it's not for cars then it's alright to park across. Still no surfaced connection to NCN7.

The Dyke Road cycleway at the Craggan Drive junction. Although the cycleway markings suggest the cycleway has priority, the 'give way' markings at the kerbline have not been refreshed and there is a danger drivers from Craggan Drive will pu ... [more]
