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.

The Langlands Road cycleway restarts as a designated strip of asphalt outside the shops. Despite the tyre marks on the kerb, there is no dropped kerb, and cycle access is from the narrow toucan crossing.

The cycleway on Langlands Road has now been extended across Golspie Street.

The canal path branching off from the path between Campbell Street and Lochburn Road. Work has just commenced on building a new bridge at Stockingfield canal junction, which will remove the need to go down to Lochburn Road to cross the cana ... [more]

The Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane. A stencil has been used for the cycle logo.

The Sauchiehall Street cycleway at Charing Cross.

Waterloo Street, at the end of the proper protected cycle lane, and the start of the divided footway with bumpy paving for the cycle side (see #95475). I notice from Google Streetview and OSM that there appears to be something similar go ... [more]

The Hope Street contraflow cycle lane, part of the West City Way, and leading to the Waterloo Street protected cycle lane.

Path from Provost Way to the riverside path bypassing the steeply graded path in #99172.

Path from Prospecthill Circus approaching Jessie Street.

The Cathkin Braes cycle path ends at the entrance to the country park, but could extend further to connect with the junction of the road to Rogerton.

The Cathkin Braes cycle path crosses a farm access.

A cycle track extends from the end of Gallowhill Road alongside the B759 as far as an entrance to the Cathkin Braes mountain biking.

A rather disjointed looking cycle connection between Springbank Street and Garscube Road at Queen's Cross, but a connection nonetheless. And cycle parking.

A footbridge across the M8 motorway, connecting Queenslie Industrial Estate and Garthamlock.

The path behind the recycling centre at Queenslie.

A path from Bartiebeith Road that heads around the back of Queenslie Industrial Estate, next to the M8 motorway.

The Seven Lochs Trail at Auchingill Road, Easterhouse.

A toucan crossing across a motorway sliproad at Robroyston.

Although there are no signs on this section, this footway joins together two toucan crossings so can probably be considered shared-use. The roundabout on this side of the motorway has been considerably enlarged.

The start of the shared footway along Saughs Road, that starts at a turning built for some future development that as yet hasn't been built.

A shared footway and toucan crossing on Saughs Road. The shared footway on this side continues as far as the dead-end turning for a future development, and the footway on the other side of the road becomes shared-use at the crossing.

The shared footway between Saughs Road and Robroyston Road. It continues as far as the Nova Business Park.

The start of the shared footway on the east side of Robroyston Road. Just a dropped kerb to allow cyclists to join.

A cycleway around the roundabout in Nova Business Park.

A shared-use footway on Robroyston Park outside the Nova Business Park.

The cycle route towards Paisley passing under Crookston Road, and following the White Cart. The ramp up to Crookston Road (at #112178) can be seen to the left.

A hair-pin bend in the ramp up from the White Cart path to Crookston Road.

The Clyde Tunnel cycle track now has a dropped kerb across the end of it at the Cressy St junction.

The exit from the southbound pedestrian/cycle Clyde Tunnel. Although each tunnel is one-way for cycles, pedestrians can use either tunnel in either directions. How are pedestrians entering here expected to know about the possibility of a ... [more]

Inside the southbound pedestrian/cycle Clyde Tunnel.

Raised crossing where NCN756 and Piccadilly Street meet.

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. UPDATE 2021: The path has now been extended, see #170148.

The new cycleway alongside St Rollox Drive, the new road along the northern edge of the Sighthill redevelopment.

The start of the cycle track alongside St Rollox Drive, the new road connecting Keppochhill Road and Springburn Road at the Sighthill redevelopment. The only way onto the cycleway is to use the dropped kerbs at the Keppochhill Road signalis ... [more]

The full length of the Pearce Lane cycle track. For some strange reason, the dropped kerb at Water Row does not extend to the full width of the cycle track.

A protected cycle lane along Pearce Lane, between Pearce Street and Water Row.

Zigzag ramp from Penicuik Drive down to Myreside Drive. Another useful path added to new estate. Also, helps avoid Shettleston Road.

Shared path to Rigby Gardens, part of traffic-free route through new housing. Could do with more drop kerbs but paths are useful to avoid Shettleston Road.

@RantyHighwayman @peterwalker99 Though this is good design, but it’s in back street of Govan, Glasgow... almost as cyclists don’t ever shop or stop for coffee! https://t.co/qzxO60mslu

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.
