Bad tree root damage to the path down from Campbell Street to the Stockingfield Bridge. While not ever going to be a main access route, it is still one that will be used by local people and this damage should have been addressed.

Elderslie Street, I waited long enough for a full cycle of the main traffic lights, but these ones on a segregated cycleway did not change during that time.

Elderslie Street, I waited long enough for a full cycle of the main traffic lights, but these ones on a segregated cycleway did not change during that time.

Footbridge over the Clydeside Expressway. It's a stepped ramp, but there's some attempt to improve it with in-fill on part of the steps. I saw a cyclist ride down it carefully.

The gully in #51324 is now blocked with mud.

Still no reinstatement of bollards to stop drivers from using this pedestrian and cycle route as an access route to and from the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. The bollards were removed for the COP26 dinner.

The Maryhill Road crossing on North Woodside Road has now been completed. Corduroy tactile paving has again been used erroneously in place of the wider gap Cycleway type. Left and right turns have been banned with the Ahead Only sign.

The new cycle traffic signal at the Maryhill Road crossing on North Woodside Road. Note the Ahead Only sign forbidding left and right turns, including into Hopehill Road for accessing the supermarket.

Benches and an overflowing bin, but no cycle route signage at the junction of Ferry Road and the cycle path to Kelvinhaugh Road.

Placemaking (I think) at Ferry Road. Benches have been installed next to the bin, but still no restoration of direction signage (such as in #37216) for the cycle routes.

The Bunhouse Road cycleway signals at Argyle Street remain under wraps.

Ponding on the Bunhouse Road cycleway.

The incorrect tactile paving (corduroy in place of cycleway) is still in place on Old Dumbarton Road.

Broken glass on path.

Broken glass on path, although not as much as the last time I was here.

The Drumchapel Way path awaits improvement.

A new path has been built towards Kinfauns Drive, and has Drumchapel Way branded marker posts on either side, but there are no dropped kerbs or any other form of crossing on the road at this point. The original route of the Drumchapel Way ( ... [more]

Looking the opposite way from #180493, the Drumchapel Way path awaits rebuilding on the east side of Kinfauns Drive, but a new path has been build on the west side, ending at a Drumchapel Way marker post next to the bus shelter, but with no ... [more]

No progress on building a proper path here. This is shown as a cycleway in Glasgow City Council's GIS system.

The Scottish Water works have been completed, trees have been planted, but the paths remain a mess. Will this be remedied? Looking in the opposite direction from #180495.

The path ahead is now impossible to identify, only the path to the right remains, but markings on the ground may signify something is going to be built.

Much better lighting is required across the park at night. The park is far to dark in places making this unsafe.

Better access to cross the road for cyclists would be good here.

Better access to cross the road for cyclists would be good here.

The finished state of the end of the Benalder Street cycleway does not involve traffic signals after all, and an upside down Give Way triangle is all that assists cyclists in rejoining the flow of traffic.

The Old Dumbarton Road cycleway still has incorrect corduroy (Hazard) tactile paving, and for some manoeuvers from Bunhouse Road, it is so close to the junction that cyclists will still be turning when crossing it. Leaf and other autumn ... [more]

Priority has returned to the Bunhouse Road cycleway at the car park entrance, but has been indicated by a random use of miniature Give Way markings as the only indication of this.

Although now completely unbagged, the cycle traffic signal at Bunhouse Road doesn't seem to ever change to green.

Although now completely unbagged, the cycle traffic signals at the end of Argyle Street don't seem to ever change to green. The approach is still a mess.

@UrbanistTOC @FrisealMacRab @MyGlasgowCC @digmundfreud @GlasgowCC Hi @MyGlasgowCC Can you tell us how we get the cycleway on Govan Road cleared of wet slippery leaves? Is there actually a reporting mechanism which will elicit action? https: ... [more]

The new cycle track connecting the Tradeston Bridge to West Street. The route to the right is only for going to Paisley Road now, since the diagonal crossing at the Kingston Street junction has been removed and mandatory turn signs point to ... [more]

The cycle traffic signals for the Bunhouse Road/Argyle Street crossing still await commissioning.

No clearance of any of the muck covering up part of the NCN7 path next to the Clydeside Expressway.

Slow for the incorrect tactile paving and portaloo.

Unusably bad soft segregation has been put in on Argyle Street for the COP26 diversion route, and is dangerous for various reasons, including lorry parking right up to the pedestrian crossing point blocking sight lines. See also #175137.

The path over the River Kelvin bridge is very narrow, so having this fence block sightlines onto it until the last moment before knowing whether the way is clear or not is rather unhelpful. #102680 illustrates the width. With the gate left ... [more]

"Doom awaits" - a fence blocking sightlines onto the narrow path across the River Kelvin expressway bridge. No such problems for drivers on the adjacent road. See also #175173.

The soft segregation for the COP26 diversion route does not extend as far as the Castlebank Street junction, even though Beith Street is a very wide road for a one lane each way road. Cyclists are diverted back onto the narrow footway to ge ... [more]

The ramps at the soft segregation provided for the COP26 diversion are tiny, and completely unusable should anyone turn up on anything other than a standard solo bicycle.

The soft segregation for the COP26 diversion on Beith Street does not even extend to the Benalder Street junction. It, like the similar work on Argyle Street, is done to a poor standard and provides a narrow space for cycling alongside the ... [more]

Very poor soft segregation on Argyle Street for the COP26 diversion route.

Soft segregation has been put in on Argyle Street for the COP26 diversion route, but is of such poor quality that it is worse than useless. See also #175139.

Unswept cycleway in Archerhill Road.

Burnt out debris at the junction of paths between Kendoon Avenue and Inchfad Drive, signed as a cycle path.

The Drumchapel Way path is becoming increasingly blocked by overgrowing bushes, in addition to the surface deteriorating.

Low overhanging tree branches all along this section of path next to the Clydeside Expressway, restricting visibility and the ability to use the full width of the path.

Sign needed at south side of crossing to direct people to go east for National Route 7 and Pollock Park. We went the wrong way due to this lack of info,

Clear signs on this side of the road needed to direct people on cycles over to the Anderston Bridge cycle path. Not clear to people new to the route off the train from London.

NCN7 alongside the Clydeside Expressway, with the right-hand verge encroaching onto the path.

Tree roots damaging the surface of NCN7.

Tree roots damaging the surface of NCN7.

The toucan crossing across Castlebank Street at the Glasgow Harbour development is missing its red man and green cycle lights. The road surface is also badly worn.

Not as bad as #173674, but all the signs that this will be yet another unpleasant autumn and winter for users of the cycle off-slip from Balshagray Avenue.

In need of some basic maintenance, overhanging branches and unswept surface on the cycle off-slip from Balshagray Avenue.

Tree root damage left unattended to when work has been done to install a new access point at the roundabout.

A new cycle access point to the NCN7 path at the Beith Street/Rosevale Street roundabout, but nothing done to rectify the adjacent tree root damage.

A "Happy Way", but the bushes are taking nearly half the width of the path.

Subsidence on the Nicholson Street cycle track.

Subsiding pedestrian crossing tactiles at toucan crossing in Dyke Road.

The standard of construction of this riverside path appears to be very poor. A hole has opened up at the edge here, and both sets of steps have been fenced off. The kerb at the back of the path is set very high.

The Drumchapel Way path surface is poor.

The path does not have a proper built surface.

The end of the two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road. It just ends.

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road, at a bus stop boarder. Again, mud has accumulated at the bottom of the ramp, due to water running down the hill.

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road. Each build-out across the cycle lane on the hill has attracted accumulations of mud and other debris. Unlike the bus boarders, there was no indication of priority for pedestrians crossing the cycle ... [more]

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road, with a bus stop boarder. Again, the ramps are sharp and slowing down is good advice. The tactiles are of the correct type.

More debris collecting around the bus stop boarder, but correct cycleway tactiles, on Royston Road.

Some sort of pipe dangling from the road bridge over the River Kelvin and NCN7.

The footway is meant to be shared-use, but is not signed as such, and is covered in debris from the disintegrating road surface. This provides a cycle route between the Clyde Tunnel and some entrances to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Guidance Path tactiles installed just a few metres away from the correct Cycleway type.

A poor surface on the path the Glasgow to Cumbernauld cycle route is signed along in Glenconner Park. With a little bit of work it could even be quite nice, although the person cycling along the footway of Royston Road in the background wou ... [more]

As with #169532, the first opportunity to leave the presumably shared footway (there are no signs to confirm this) is beyond the roundabout where a dropped kerb crossing has been provided.

The first opportunity to leave the presumably shared footway from the toucan crossings at the motorway junction is up beyond the roundabout at the housing on the left (see #169533).

Although the main towpath has been resurfaced, nothing has been done about the poor connection from the towpath to the path to Vaila Street. In addition to local access, this is important for making connections between the canal and Summers ... [more]

Flooding across the West City Way in Kelvingrove Park. Not as deep as the previous time I went through it.

The person seen in #168687 gets frustrated at the lack of green signal on the cycle track and moves into the main carriageway to cross St Vincent Street legally on the Elderslie Street green.

Lack of cycle priority at cycle traffic signals on Elderslie Street. This person was already waiting as I arrived, when traffic on St Vincent Street had the green. See also #168688.

Bollard down in Yoker.

That moment when you stop to take a photo and there's a cyclist approaching on the narrow shared footway and a bus approaching on the adjacent busway, before there's time to get the camera ready. All I could do was to move into the side.

Transition between segregated paths and shared footway, with incorrect corduroy tactile paving.

Drainage problem on the Shields Road cycle track.

The final section of the link between Stockwell Place and Dunlop Street, where it crosses between the westbound and eastbound sections of Howard Street to access Dunlop Street, isn't marked in any way. The kerbs are are not well aligned eit ... [more]

The cycle track linking Stockwell Place to Dunlop Street, providing an alternative route for a banned turn from Stockwell Street into Clyde Street, and a local link between parts of Howard Street and Dunlop Street. The green surface is b ... [more]

Nothing has been done to maintain or upgrade the Stockwell Place to Dunlop Street cycle track. This appeared in plans following an objection to a proposed banned turn from Stockwell Street into Clyde Street, but no supporting signage was ev ... [more]

Drainage problems on pop-up cycle lane oon Bilsland Drive.

Dislodged armadillos on Bilsland Drive pop-up cycle lane.

Bumpy path at the riverside.

Ponding and tree root damage on the rebuilt section of canal path at Blairdardie.

Collapsing and muddy tactile paving at the M8 on-slip toucan crossing at Craighall Road.

Poor lumpy asphalt surface on bridge over Forth & Clyde Canal.

The Kelso Street cycle lane directs cyclists to use a narrow path of paving slabs, with hoop barriers at the end. Sightlines on the corner are not great either.

The new cycle track along Old Dumbarton Road. In addition to the top surface (in the foreground) not being machine laid, the tactiles are incorrect Corduroy/Hazard type and not the Tramlines/Cycleway type. Being at the foot of a hill, these ... [more]

Dislodged armadillos sitting in the gutter along with the leaves.

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.

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.

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.
