I've never worked out if these strips are badly installed drainage (for the boggy grass to the right), or anti-cycling rumble strips. A swimming contest can be seen in the background.

The start of the Lincoln Avenue cycle track, seen from the opposite direction to #101264.

The end of the widened footway and transition onto an on-road painted cycle lane along Alderman Road.

Probably the start of the cycleway alluded to in #107051.

The Cleddans Burn path, part of the Garscadden Way and Drumchapel Way, approaches Achamore Road.

A scenic section of the Drumchapel Way and Garscadden Way, on the Cleddans Burn path.

A poor quality surface at the start of the Cleddans Burn path, part of the Garscadden Way cycle route and Drumchapel Way walking route. The footway on the Goals access road swaps from the north to the south side at this point.

A shared footway in quiet Glendore Street, and I think the raised crossing in Medwyn Street in the foreground could be better aligned with the footway.

The Loch Lomond railway path used to carry on here, but now flats block the route as well as the expanded car showroom that initially took over some of the land. NCN7 continues along the footway across South Street to the right.

The Dyke Road cycleway ends at a new toucan crossing which provides a connection to Speirshall Close. There were new 'Recommended Route for Cyclists' signs in Speirshall Close, but I couldn't work out where they were leading. NCN7 can be ... [more]

The spacing of the orcas changes opposite the junction of Moorhouse Avenue to accommodate turns to and from the cycleway.

The new section of widened shared-use footway on Dyke Road, with a surface mounted sign.

The new cycleway on Lincoln Avenue, with a staggered uncontrolled pedestrian crossing.

A bus stop bypass on Lincoln Avenue, next to Knightswood Park. Most bus passengers will be alighting at this stop rather than boarding. Looking back at my photos of this route, I notice that only this section has the 'No Loading' kerb ma ... [more]

The new cycleway on Lincoln Avenue. If you don't want to turn left into Archerhill Road you need to leave the cycleway, but there's nothing to say this.

The new cycle track in Lincoln Avenue, past the new BMX centre in Knightswood Park. This bit looks like it may be prone to flooding.

What I take to be the final layout at the Archerhill Road bus stop. The final white line (seen in #100294) directing cyclists into the undropped kerb has been blacked out.

The new cycle track in Archerhill Road turns right into Lincoln Avenue.

A path linking the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath to Duntreath Avenue.

The riverside path at Yoker, which connects to NCN7.

I was expecting something a little more physical for separation than just paint, but maybe it's not finished yet. UPDATE: Orcas have since been installed.

The path looking southwards from the A8(M) motorway bridge.

The path beneath the A8(M) motorway bridge.

The path beneath the A8(M), Scotland's shortest motorway, has now been completed. I can't help but think they could have been more generous on the width. Not that lots of people will use it, but passing a couple of people walking a dog will ... [more]

A raised crossing across Mellerstain Drive in Yoker.

I remember being told by a council official how planning gain was going to be used to help develop the cycle route network in Glasgow. I don't think anything beneficial happened as a result of the new housing on the left.

A plastic bollard has replaced the previous metal barriers in the path (seen in #48603), but the site still needs a general tidying up.

A plastic bollard has replaced the previous metal barriers in the path.

The underpass has replaced the old railway bridge under Dyke Road.

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. Looking back towards the toucan crossing in #99488.

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park.

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The route crosses sides here at this new toucan crossing. Maybe they'll put in some cycle parking for the shops before they are finished. Quite a sho ... [more]

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park.

The exit from the northbound Clyde Tunnel in Whiteinch.

The shared-use footway on Govan Road crosses sides at the split toucan crossing at the Pacific Drive junction.

The Govan Road shared-use footway with the door-zone buffer strip in action.

The parallel cycle and zebra crossing has now been finished. Go left to turn right. It's also not clear what is and what is not shared use footway.

The start of a path that may or may not lead to the Paisley Road cycle track.

Cycles only beyond this point?

Toucan crossings across to the Paisley Road cycle track. Some of the green phases overlap.

With a new building next door, the link between the North Hanover Street shared footway and St Mungo Avenue has had its strange half step (see #31794) removed and now is wholly ramp. However, all of the signage has disappeared so it is now ... [more]

The surface on the ramp between Broomielaw and the Clyde Walkway has been reinstated. A sign proclaims "access improvements". Ah, it's slightly wider (see #88473).

The ramp up to New Rutherglen Road is signed as shared use, but doesn't connect well with the toucan crossing and the shared footway along Polmadie Road (see also #99165).

The path leads to the crossing across Cathcart Road and the cycle route continues across the far side of the crossing in Preston Street.

The cycle track linking Kingarth Street with Victoria Road, right at the bus stop.

The cycle track between Bowman Street and Victoria Road goes around the bus shelter. Hopefully this will be improved by the South City Way works.

The Torrisdale Street contraflow cycle track, looking towards the Pollokshaws Road toucan crossing.

A cycle track with right angled corners links between Nithsdale Road and the Pollokshaws Road toucan crossing, around the bins.

Although narrow at each end (see #98928 and #98993), the middle section of the path between Meiklewood Road and Drumoyne Road is reasonably wide. But it could do with being a bit smoother.

The cycle path towards the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital starts at the Meiklewood Road roundabout. It is also a dead end for pedestrians so surely this first section of path should be signed for cycles only.

Start of the Moss Road cycleway at Langcroft Road.

The path suddenly gets wider!

A bus stop bypass of sorts on the shared-use footway of Springburn Road.

The surface on the cycleway is the same shiny smooth asphalt used on the footway. Not good for grip.

Dropped kerbs have been installed at the access to the Village development (rectifying #71113), but that footway next to the stepped cycleway is so narrow!

Underpass discussion at a CEoGB AGM infrastructure safari.

Bell's Bridge could do with a wider path on the north end, but it is lovely to cycle on. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/R3RWlYZqz6

Not everyone's cup of tea, but I like cycling through the Clyde Tunnel. Just need to lose the ridiculous 5mph signs #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/1dDZfYTJ2D

Rush hour on Elderslie St #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/LwLZk9nANU

Segregated lane on Berkeley St is nice, but uncomfortably narrow & the bus stop is awkward. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/J6tHVyAmy5

Unfortunately once you get to the bridge it just stops in a confusing mess of lights going nowhere... #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/2t1VvmD5W4

Riverside path is nice in the morning #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/Lp4uq4FSHm

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 good bus stop bypass ✅ poor drainage ❌ high threat wheel snares / tyre cutters ❌ https://t.co/ZRlxl5GY62

The bus stop that dreamed of floating #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 Aikenhead Road https://t.co/rpRvsRBq7c

Would be a good walking or cycling path. Shared use next to massive #Holyrood school though? #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/uFQ47EK5uv

The Brock Burn path in Pollok.

The Brock Burn path meets the cycle route through Silverburn.

The first sign that this is a shared-use footway.

Although the bus stop layby on Thornliebank Road has been filled in for the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route, the width still narrows down by the pelican crossings.

A small ramp has been provided from Harriet Place to the pelican crossing on Thornliebank Road for the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route.

The path through Greenbank Park is much improved, but takes a detour around the Harriet Place flats to get to Barrhead Road.

A resurfaced path in Greenbank Park, now part of the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route.

Upgraded bridge across the Auldhouse Burn.

The Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route crosses the zebra crossing across Auldhouse Road, then heads up Holeburn Road.

The Kelvin Walkway at the Kelvin Aqueduct. A pity about the kink in the path still being present. Awkward and annoying when you're just picking up speed from the preceding narrow climb and blind corner.

A welcome new path connecting the Kelvin Walkway to Southmuir Place, but it appears to have been built without any regrading of the gradients, so has a sudden steep climb.

A welcome new path to Southmuir Place, but needs protected from use by drivers.

A welcome new path from Southmuir Place towards the Kelvin Walkway, but why the adverse camber, and couldn't more of an effort be made to tidy up the start? With no bollards to protect the path, there are also motor vehicle tyre tracks.

The cycle lane goes straight through the bus stop, and has a bit of crossfall.

The Broomhouse protected cycle lanes continue past driveways (and need a sweep).

NCN7, the Meadow Road underpass, and the toucan crossing across to the Glasgow Harbour development.

NCN7 at the Meadow Road underpass, with a dropped kerb for anyone heading up Meadow Road itself.

Glasgow really pushing the boat out on cycling infrastructure I see... https://t.co/xEq1oobYaI

A new surfaced path has replaced the previous boggy path between the Kelvin Walkway and Bantaskin St. But the kink in the main Kelvin Walkway path hasn't been touched.

The canal path at Port Dundas Basin.

The end of the canal path at the entrance to Pinkston Watersports Centre.

A mysterious strip of asphalt has appeared at the new toucan crossing in Royston.

The Paisley Road protected cycletrack merges into a shared footway around the corner. The diagonal crossing is aligned for those going up and down West St, but has a signal facing anyone coming from Paisley Road, just in case someone wants ... [more]

The Paisley Road cycle track, with access to/from toucan crossings off to the right via the speed hump. There is also what looks like a cut-through for access directly from the carriageway (next to the lamppost).

The South Bank cycle route alongside the River Clyde.

The South Bank cycle route and the dismantled Polmadie Bridge, with diversion signs.

New bridge connecting the Cuningar Loop park to the former athletes' village, but no connection to the Clyde Walkway.

Mysterious new path. See #87997.

The original full size cycle traffic signals seen in #72137 have been replaced with miniature ones.

The cobble replacement work only goes so far, so together with the bumpy path opposite Speirs Wharf means the canal path is still not the ideal route into the city from the northwest that it could be.

Access from Baird's Brae to the canal bridge and city-bound path is cobble-free, but the left turn towards Maryhill involves crossing a strip of cobbles.

New smooth shared path down Baird's Brae.

Some new surfacing on the canal path at Baird's Brae, partly replacing cobbles

Conversion to toucan crossing underway at Petershill Road.

I'm not sure what the point of this is.
