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.

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.

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.
