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.

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.

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.

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).

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

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.

Better lighting for winter commute and safety.

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]

Unclear priorities for buses and cyclists in bus lane merging with general lane. Narrow footpaths cannot be shared by pedestrians and cyclists. Unpleasant for pedestrians in any case as you have to walk very close to sometimes fast traffic. ... [more]

The shared use footpath on the side of the road narrows at bus stops (the very place bus users quite naturally congregate!) making social distancing of pedestrians and cyclist impossible even if just passing, let alone if people waiting for ... [more]

Segregated cylecway on the Switchback Road between The Garscube Estate and Old Crow Road. There is nearly a safe-feeling north-south route for walking and cycling between Anniesland High St, Anniesland station, Morrisons etc to the south, a ... [more]

Make junction safer for all users by widening pedestrian pavements and installing a cycle lane that would enable to get around this junction safely in all directions.

A cycle path along Maryhill road and continuing onto Garscube Road would be brilliant. There are a lot of cyclists that end up cycling on the road and not the canal due to high number of walkers on the canal.

All the way along Alexandra Parade and A8 the inside lanes are littered with large potholes due to bus and traffic use. This needs better maintenace

This road is always prone to poor drainage and water runoff from adjacent land and is dangerous during winter months

Cycle way needed

The need for a ramp down to the cycleway as there are only steps here and requires a dismount whilst walking past other pedestrians.

Large strtetches of the cycleway/footpath from Glasgow to Kirkintilloch are very poor with potholes. This can be dangerous when trying to avoid when people are coming in opposite directions.

A cycle way on Dorchester Avenue would safely connect all the families living on the street or near by to the canal cycle path. It's such a busy road with loads of fast cars now that the road is a little less busy. Also the pavement is narr ... [more]

A82 is wide enough for cycleway along its entire length to Bowling. This would encourage cyclists to commute safely and quickly to Glasgow

Clearer road markings required for all traffic (cyclists, buses and cars) due to traffic flowing East from Maryhill Rd onto Garscube Rd or veering right to continue along Maryhill Rd. Difficult for any road user coming from inside lane wish ... [more]

Impossible to use this pavement cycleway when pedestrians are present i.e. always

This is a cycle route but often impossible to use as the path is narrow and people with prams/kids are there. The cycle path should be expanded or ideally re-routed.

Eastbound here there is no protection for cyclists. If the pavement is supposed to be used it should be signed.

Cycleways needed to provide better links to and from the east end and city centre.

Cycleways are stop and start and there needs to be more linking infrastructure.

The cycle path ends where Aikenhead Road meets Cathcart Road. This can be improved by extending the cycle path over the bridge across the M74 to join the cycle path on Pollokshaws Road at Cumberland Street.

This stretch of road is in poor condition in the bus lanes where cyclists travel. Improvements needed and designated space to link the east end with the city centre, schools and workplaces.

This section of cumbernauld road is busy with pedestrians and cars and cyclists need safe, segregated space to link the east end with the river/south and city centre.

Cycleways needed to connect east end commuters and residents to schools and Stobhill hospital, as well as bike access to and around springburn park.

Cycleways needed to connect east end commuters and residents to schools and Stobhill hospital.

Connecting cycleways needed from royston road up this direction towards Stobhill hospital and schools.

The whole of Royston road should have a cycleway and the surface of the road needs addressed. This could provide cycle commuting access to Stobhill hospital.

Cycleways are needed here to connect commuters from the east end to Springburn and Stobhill hospital. The roads are busy and no clear markings, even when there is an apparant cycle lane.

Alexandra parade offers a quick route from Dennistoun to the city centre, but separately marked cycleways are needed. This is a busy main road and not safe in it's current state for bikes.

The whole section of Cumbernauld road from the junction with Edinburgh road until it becomes Alexandra parade needs a cycleway to allow better bike access to and from Alexandra park, the Royal infirmary, city centre and residential areas. T ... [more]

The road surface is terrible all the way up and down this stretch of Cumbernauld road, from Edinburgh road to Hogganfield loch. Near Hogganfield there is a marked cycle way, but the road surface is dangerous for bikes and markings unclear. ... [more]

It would be brilliant to have a cycle path from Trongate, up through the centre to the Glasgow Royal Infirmary to enable staff, visitors and patients better access to the hospital.

Some properly segregated cycle lanes along GWR. Been close passed so many times along here. Would be great to encourage people from the west to ride to the west and and the city centre.

The cars oparked here are niot residents and the raod is very wide. Remove parked cars from at leastr one side and rediesign teh road to accomodate a cycle path. This should also be extended past the row of shops of QM drive as it is an uns ... [more]

Visibility here is very poor - blind corner going under bridge. Makes distancing difficult if bikes or runners are coming through, as can't see them until it's too late. Have had a couple of collisions here.

Visibility when approaching towpath here from the south is overgrown - we can't see if cyclists are coming from left or right on towpath. Please improve the visibility.

Surface on the canal towpath is really bad for cyclists here.

The road here is very dangerous for cyclists, especially southbound. There are bad potholes on the inside edge of the road, and weight of traffic makes swerving to avoid them very dangerous. Alternative route for cyclists heading south adds ... [more]

No link between the Sauchiehall Street cycleway and into the West End along Woodlands Road. It could do with a dedicated cycling path.

All of Great Western Rod urgently needs a fully protected cycle route, cars must be secondary

Extremely busy junction unsafe for cycling, very narrow pavements on either side of the road.

Cycleway installed to assist children/families to cycle to new school

Would like it to be accessible by pram.

Bilsland Drive should have a dedicated cycle lane either side of the road travelling north and south.

Bilsland Drive should have a dedicated cycle lane either side of the road travelling north and south.

Very large pothole that needs urgent repair. It has already caused a cyclist to crash, lose consciousness and their 2 front teeth

Shared path along the Clyde is too narrow for social distancing, alternative cycle route here would help with key route into town.

Cycle provision needed

Queen margaret drive is about 4 miles wide - could easily fit segregated cycleways with minimal effort

No drop down to allow cyclists to access road when turning into Northinch street

Cycle lane is way too narrow, and its position next to parking bays means that if you were to cycle in the lane and a car door opened, the door would take up the whole bike lane and cause a potential nasty incident.

Use existing railway tunnel under railway to provide a more direct access for Hospital & link to bus route - part of a larger project to deliver a proper station for 1.8 million passengers per year with better access than at present

Part of a route for cycling between Gartnaval & QEUH via Clyde Tunnel - interim provision of step-free access via Hayburn Lane. This route 1 mile shorter than driving & takes 15 minutes with EAPC

It's March and last autumn's leaf mess is still plaguing the Kelvin Walkway. Overtrousers or a change of trousers required on wet days, even with full length mudguards.

Still no dropped kerb at Pinkston Road to join the path between the M8 motorway and the former Sighthill Park. The new location for the Sighthill standing stones can be seen to the right.

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!

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]

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

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.

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

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]

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

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]

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

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

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

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]

I skidded to a halt to take photo #101275. Didn't expect that.

I genuinely thought they would widen this extremely narrow footway as part of the Knightswood cycle route works, but no. See also #99502. At this point the shared-use footway on Dyke Road changes into a cycleway formed by orcas.

A blind corner on the Dyke Road shared-use footway. See also https://twitter.com/CalumCook91/status/1022590507606831106

The end of the on-road cycleway on Lincoln Avenue, but where next? The fresh dropped kerb across the junction suggests that it is onto the existing footway. And another corner for collecting detritus. UPDATE: A direction sign for a qu ... [more]

The new cycle lane in Archerhill Road needs swept, and a motorist has decided to park in the gap between orcas at the BMX centre entrance.

Pigeon mess problem at the Cowal Road bridge.

Poor forward visibility on the bit of the Kelvin Walkway that dips down next to the river then climbs back up quite steeply (out of sight around the bend).

An update on #99502, double white lines have been added. Note the two on bikes on the footway across the other side of the road.

This just doesn't look good at all.

The cycleway suddenly turns from a shared-use footway behind the bus shelter and jumps into an on-road two-way cycle lane.

The bus stop impasse (seen in #99495) has now been painted up. A closeup of the dropped kerb can be seen in #100294.

An unsurfaced link to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath from the end of a residential part of Netherton Road. See also #100261.

A canal towpath access path, unsigned, and comprising just a dirt path. Why is this not surfaced to the same standard as the main path?

Parts of the Kelvin Walkway could do with a sweep and having the low-hanging branches cut back.

Broken glass on the cyclepath under the Bredisholm Road bridge, next to the new M8 motorway.

A new cycle route on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. A bus stop impasse? It appears the intent is that cyclists using this cycle lane should use the dropped kerb to join the footway and go around the back ... [more]

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The approach to the toucan crossing appears to be quite messy. I'm not sure why the white lines extend around each corner into the side roads. Maybe thi ... [more]

Tree root damage to NCN 7 cycle path in Partick.

The approach to the Clyde Tunnel cycle tunnel entrance from Holmfauld Place, with no dropped kerb for anyone that missed the dropped kerb in #99461.

When I turned into Holmfauld Place from Govan Road I noticed a white line on the footway. On investigation, it turns out the only way onto this shared cycleway is via the dropped kerb next to the black car.

A blind corner risk on the new Summertown Road shared footway. Note that the position of the dropped kerb discourages cycling away from the wall and towards the kerbline where there is better visibility.

And so we get to Summertown Road with a blind corner to start with. It sets the tone! See also #99174.
