The cobbles under the Ruchill Street bridge have been replaced by asphalt, removing one hazard at this very narrow section of path built in modern times. See #92011 for previous surface.

The Bunhouse Road cycle traffic signals are finally operational, about a year after installation. On this occasion the signal was triggered by someone cycling on the footway opposite. See also #183675.

The Bunhouse Road cycle traffic signals are finally operational, about a year after installation. However, some cyclists are continuing to use the pedestrian crossings, including this one who never pressed the button and had to wait a coupl ... [more]

Temporary barriers have returned to close off the Kelvingrove Art Gallery pedestrian and cycle access from use by drivers.

The big cycle traffic signals have been replaced by little ones.

A detector has now been installed at the Maryhill Road crossing on North Woodside Road.

New detector strips have been installed at the North Woodside Road cycle traffic signals at the Maryhill Road crossing. UPDATE 16/6/2022: Arriving by bike, the detector did not cause the button to light up, so I had to press the button i ... [more]

People walking and cycling on Kelvin Way, with motoring signage still on display two years after the closure to driving.

The North Woodside Road scheme included shortening the length of the road available for driving by extending the cycleway. A zebra crossing has been provided for pedestrians accessing the steps to the supermarket.

The finished replacement crossing on North Woodside Road at Maryhill Road. Note the Ahead Only sign on the traffic signal.

A zebra crossing on the Bunhouse Road cycleway. This one has tactile paving for pedestrians on one side only.

The Drumchapel Way meets the new Garscadden Burn flood prevention construction work, at the foot of the ramped steps from Belsyde Avenue.

A new path to Southdeen Avenue, but the connection to Glenkirk Drive behind the camera is via a flight of steps. The Drumchapel Way crosses from right to left.

A new playpark, picnic benches, and a section of unfinished path heading towards Southdeen Avenue. The path from Kinfauns Drive crosses and connects to the original route of the Drumchapel Way to the left.

A new playpark and section of unfinished new path heading towards Glenkirk Drive.

A couple of new paths have appeared following the Scottish Water works. The path to the right joins Southdeen Avenue, while the path to the left joins the original waymarked route of the Drumchapel Way. Despite waymarker posts at Kinfauns D ... [more]

The end of the Ferry Road cycleway, with a Give Way back onto the carriageway. This road is a dead end for motorists, but leads to the National Cycle Network.

Erased markings at the junction of the Old Dumbarton Road, Benalder Street and Ferry Road cycleways. The plans used in the consultation period showed a mini-roundabout!

The Benalder Street cycleway crosses Old Dumbarton Road without priority.

Unlike the approach taking at the previous junction, the crossings of the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway at the Ferry Road junction do not involve tactile paving on the cycleway and instead only have crossing tactiles at the pedestrian sides. ... [more]

Zebra crossings across both the carriageway and cycleway on Bunhouse Road. It is unclear whether pedestrians are allowed or barred from the former shared use footway.

Zebra crossings across both the carriageway and cycleway in Bunhouse Road.

The end of the new two-way cycleway on Hamilton Road and transition to one-way with-flow protected cycle lanes beyond the junction.

After a gap of a couple of miles, a permanent cycleway starts on London Road at the London Drive junction. It continues through the Mount Vernon junction onto Hamilton Road. Cycle lights allow cyclists across from the eastbound carriageway ... [more]

It made sense to someone… somewhere… https://t.co/vptZitAdIL

The replacement Clyde Place cycleway is finally open. Here it meets the South West City Way.

The replacement Clyde Place cycleway is finally open.

The replacement Clyde Place cycleway is finally open.

The replacement Clyde Place cycleway is finally open.

No further progress on reinstating the road markings at the newly rebuilt Old Dumbarton Road/Ferry Road/Benalder Street junction. All of the pedestrians visible are walking on the cycle track and not the narrow footway.

The entrance to the NCN7 Loch Lomond cycle path at Hayburn Street.

The brand new cycleway on Old Dumbarton Road covered in leaves.

I never noticed these cycle symbols in the paving before.

The SEC covered walkway itself appeared to be open for business, although whether it was possible to get out the other end I don't know, having diverted around the gyratory system due to the sight at #175151.

The end of the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway in Ferry Road is now usable.

The Benalder Street cycleway has now been connected to the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway, with the installation of the raised crossing. The old lamppost seen in #174295 has been removed.

The Old Dumbarton Road cycleway has now been cleared of obstructions at the Ferry Road junction. The raised crossing has been installed and awaits lining. Some bollards might be in order too.

The entrance to the cycle path at Greenlaw Road has been receiving some attention. However, the two plastic bollards that control access have gone missing.

Work on the path through Yorkhill Park appears to be incomplete. While work on the wall appears to have been completed to a high standard, the path is missing its top surface, and the lighting columns have been placed within the width of th ... [more]

Work on the path through Yorkhill Park appears to be incomplete. The surface is quite bumpy.

Work on the path through Yorkhill Park appears to have ceased.

The former NCN7 route at Pointhouse Road and the footbridge with steps over the Clydeside Expressway still form useful parts of the cycle network to differing degrees.

Waiting on red.

The path next to the Clydeside Expressway at Skypark.

The area could do with tidying up, noting the routes people actually use, and to have some benches installed.

A new section of cycle track at West Street, showing junction with Clyde Place cycle track. See #169987 for view in opposite direction.

The start of the Benalder Street cycle track at the Castle Street junction. There is a high kerb across the other end (see #174295).

The shared footway in Bunhouse Road has been covered in beige surfacing, except for a gap just beyond the crossing. The main pedestrian egress from the car park comes up the ramp on the left.

The junction where it is proposed to close NCN7 during the COP26 conference and divert users around the streets of Yorkhill, Finnieston and Anderston. The carriageway of the road is accessed via the dropped kerb before the bridge, and the f ... [more]

NCN7 alongside the Clydeside Expressway.

Looking towards #173895, this is where the Loch Lomond Railway Path used to start. Now the gap in the underpass wall has been filled in and the former railway embankment demolished, so NCN7 crosses Castlebank Street using this toucan crossi ... [more]

Good to see SCW being well-used this morning. Just a shame they had to wait two and a half full cycles of the lights before being able to cross https://t.co/cyl5jW5cYX

A new NCN7 cycle access point at the Beith Street/Rosevale Street roundabout. There is a pedestrian access over to the right, and whether this is the best point on the roundabout for a cycle access I'm not sure, since no-one will approach f ... [more]

Surface dressing has been applied to the canal towpath between Yoker and Clydebank.

The covered walkway/cycleway at the SEC has reopened following the decommissioning of the Louisa Jordan Hospital.

Surrey Street has had a cycle connection to Pollokshaws Road ever since this end of the street was closed to motor traffic as part of the Route Action Plan programme, but it is not clear how one is to join the South City Way cycle tracks.

The cycle track at Herbertson Street forms part of a link from Eglinton Street to Norfolk Street eastbound, but there is no assistance for making the initial right turn from Eglinton Street other than the right turn lane for the Coburg Stre ... [more]

The new ramp from Firhill Road and Garscube Road up to the Forth & Clyde Canal and the bridge to the Claypits nature reserve is now open. In addition to the ramp, there are steps available for pedestrians. Part of the Nextbike hire stati ... [more]

Cycle art produced by a local school on the wall at the entrance to the Drumchapel Way at Drummore Road, but no maintenance done to trim the overhanging branches or to the path surface.

Lanes for walking and cycling have been painted in various places in Kelvingrove Park, but are having little impact on where people actually walk or cycle. Not that the lack of compliance seems to cause any problems.

The underpass in #170471 does see some usage for getting between NCN7 and the Scotstoun Conservation Area, since the route gives safe access to Earlbank Avenue.

The end of the Hinshaw Street cycleway at the Maltbarns Street junction. The nib on the far side of the junction has a dropped kerb at the far side, if continuing along Hinshaw Street. The tactile strip is some new adhesive type I'd not see ... [more]

This is pretty much the full length of the Hinshaw Street cycleway. It ends at the Maltbarns Street junction.

A short section of cycleway in Hinshaw Street feeds into the cycleway in Garscube Road.

The end of the Garscube Road cycleway, but there is a short length of cycleway to the left in Hinshaw Street. Construction is underway to the right, of a new ramp for access to the Forth & Clyde Canal. See update at #171178.

The Garscube Road cycle track at the entrance to the Oakbank Trading Estate. There is a flashing LED cycle sign, but this one didn't light up, unlike one further south.

Still surfacing work outstanding at the south end of the Garscube Road cycle track.

The cycleway on Craighall Road continues as far as the entrance to Speirs Wharf. This is not a good place to cross the road, but it looks like traffic signals will be installed.

A new section of cycleway has appeared on Craighall Road and the correct Cycleway tactile slabs have been used. I'm going to have to have another look at that central dividing strip though. The surface has been left incomplete.

The North Canal Bank Street cycleway joins to a cycleway along part of Craighall Road, but the cycleway swaps to having the cycle side on the opposite side of footway. I'm guessing that this isn't complete and the traffic signals will be re ... [more]

The footway cycle lane from Maxwell Drive ends at the toucan crossing on St Andrew's Drive. The person cycling had come from the path from Maxwell Grove.

Answers on a postcard.

I came around the corner from Barrhead Road into Pollokshaws Road to find the footway there is now shared-use. There was no obvious start to this.

A flood prevention scheme has been implemented at Greenbank Park, and thus the entrances to the park have steps and ramps over the embankments that would contain any flooding. This is on the cycle route between Newlands and the Silverburn S ... [more]

Path/road crossing near the Burrell Collection in Pollok Country Park.

The western footway of Dumbreck Road over the railway and motorway bridges here is now shared-use. Although the footway is only slightly wider, various permanent clutter has been removed such as a cabinet and sign poles.

The western footway of Dumbreck Road is now shared-use as far as the Mosspark Boulevard junction, although the only sign to confirm this appears to be the low-level green sign seen on the railings in the background.

The footbridge connecting the two parts of Beech Avenue across the M8 motorway, and part of the original Glasgow to Paisley cycle route. The footbridge ramps have a single step at each side of the bridge.

The Garscube Road cycle track is nearing completion, but some of the tactile paving is the wrong colour for non-signalised crossings.

The northbound South City Way cycle track is now operating at the Cumberland Street junction, but the southbound is closed off awaiting the installation of the two-way cycle track in Gorbals Street. The junction is marked as being for "a ... [more]

The connection to Surrey Street from the South City Way cycle track on Pollokshaws Road is no longer marked (as it was previously, see #37220), but is implied with a dropped kerb available (although part of a pedestrian crossing) and ends a ... [more]

The counter at the Anderston Bridge has now been removed.

The path on the right connects Jessie Street with Prospecthill Circus (at #113826), while the one on the left heads past some of the new housing and onto the Malls Mire nature reserve.

The shared footway on Aikenhead Road, at the junction with Polmadie Road. There is no off-road cycling option for journeys that do not continue along Aikenhead Road. All the crossings are for pedestrians only.

The shared footway has been built along Spean Street without any thought for those that want to leave or join the route at intermediate junctions. Dropped kerbs are missing at various locations where such a turn may be required. And foot ... [more]

A Fire Path modified for through cycling, although the signage is unaltered. Three of the signs are probably larger than they need to be making them vulnerable to being twisted around to face the wrong way. The gap has only been marked for ... [more]

The cycle path along St Rollox Drive now extends onto Fountainwell Road.

The path from Seaward Street joins Portman Street and Scotland Street West.

The path from Shields Road and Scotland Street runs alongside the northernmost section of Shields Road before rejoining the road. The asphalt strip gets progressively narrower, forcing everyone onto the cobbles.

Path under the M8 motorway.

The tactiles seen in #70961 have now been installed with the bars parallel to the cycleway, but there's nothing in the regulations to say a diagonal installation is acceptable.

The South City Way cycle route on Victoria Road.

Revamped contraflow cycle track in Gourock Street, replacing a painted lane.

Cycle parking and a public workstand at Cavendish Street, but no dropped kerb to leave the South City Way cycle track to get to them. There used to be a dropped kerb and painted cycle track linking Pollokshaws Road and Cavendish Street here ... [more]

The 'cycleway' tactiles on the Sauchiehall Street cycle track are installed so the bars go across the cycle track instead of along it.

The new cycle track on Old Dumbarton Road has expensive stone kerbs and divider strips, but the top surface has not been machine laid, so is lumpy and uneven. Disappointing. The cycle track replaces on-street metered parking.

The protected cycle lane on Victoria Bridge and the narrow painted lane it replaced.

Armadillos protecting a wide cycle lane on Victoria Bridge.

The tops have been sliced off some of the armadillos on Victoria Bridge.

The Langlands Road cycleway joins the carriageway of Langlands Road. On the right is the start of the Fastlink bus lane to Govan Bus Station.
