Excellent signage at the Scottish Water work on the Kelvin Walkway Garriochmill Road access, where a short path has been laid to divert around the worksite.

Excellent signage at the Scottish Water work on the Garriochmill Road access to the Kelvin Walkway. A short path has been laid around the back of the work compound to maintain pedestrian and cycle access.

A fairly new cycle link on Hopehill Road, including some new green space created by shortening the former carriageway on this side of the closure.

An information board for the Cleddans Burn path, part of the Garscadden Way and Drumchapel Way.

Hooray, the filtered access on Scotland St West at Lambhill St, G41, has been installed! Thank you @GlasgowCC 👏👏👏

The rebuilt Polmadie Bridge is now open. See also #102058.

The rebuilt Polmadie Bridge is now open. See also #102059.

The Balmoral Street off-ramp from the Loch Lomond railway path. The first time I've seen a postal district on a cycle route sign.

The space-wasting hatching on Dyke Road has been removed and a cycleway installed instead.

Filtered permeability in Sydenham Lane.

Traffic light crossing

Great to see loads of people (myself included!) getting home after @TRNSMTfest with a @nextbikeUK . https://t.co/n9EPzCxi7e

Cycle parking outside local shops in Crow Road.

No actual kerb separating the carriageway and path to the canal, making for a smoother transition.

Cycle parking outside the sports centre in Yoker. It would be better with dropped kerbs to allow cycling through the road closure.

People are already (unofficially) using the southbound cycleway, before merging back into the roadway. #SouthCityWay https://t.co/K9QjAyXTDz

Bredisholm Road resurfaced with a smooth surface.

The Bredisholm Road connection to the housing estate is build to a high quality, and is lit, although the path alongside the motorway is only lit by spill from the motorway lighting.

Bollards at the end of Rhindmuir Road, at the start of the path to Coatbridge Road.

The BMX Centre under construction at Knightswood Park. Bigger than I thought.

The new double decker cycle parking at Partick station now starting to become quite popular, after all the disruption due to the bus station rebuilding project.

There are intercom panels next to the former stairwells in the Clyde Tunnel, in addition to those at the entrances and exits.

A riverside walkway in Govan, with the Riverside Museum across the other side. In summer a free ferry operates across the river.

Govan's Nextbike bike hire station, across from the subway station.

Arriving and departing at Govan Cross.

A new dropped kerb at Braid Square, for access to the path to the Garscube Road footbridge.

Polmadie Bridge being rebuilt.

A new arrangement of bike stowage on a type of train that didn't previously have any designated bike space.

New double decker cycle parking at Partick Interchange. Work is still ongoing rebuilding the bus station.

Now that the excellent new ramp next to Victoria Bridge has been built, the gates that so often blocked the former route of NCN75 (see #31366) seem to be left open much of the time.

Good filtered permeability in parts of the new Richmond Gate housing development, but wouldn't it have been better to provide a raised crossing (as at nearby #95369) for this path between the park and the houses?

The South City Way already getting used, albeit in the wrong direction!

Progress on the South City Way protected cycle lane.

A new approach path to the M8 motorway underpass at the end of Craigton Road, arranged to dissuade obstructive parking, although this doesn't always work (see #102730).

Reinstated access (possibly temporary) between the Springburn Expressway footbridge and Pinkston Drive, during the Sighthill redevelopment. Old and new buildings can be seen to the left.

Protected signs on path closed for Sighthill's redevelopment (the original Glasgow-Cumbernauld cycle route), and a reopened path to Baird Street.

Fabulous to see the progress with Glasgow's South City Way on my commute. Well rolled surface, low chamfered kerb = good pedal clearance to maximise width, generous angles and, of course, it will be uni-directional. #stepchange in street de ... [more]

smashin big new bike park going up at yer partick hub nxt to morrisinos ☆activetravelcity @GoBikeGlasgow https://t.co/Xlaub559km

A dropped kerb in the diagonal road closure on Reidvale Street and Sword Street. Not signed for cycling, but unlikely to cause a problem. Interestingly, the dropped kerb on the far side appears to be newer than on this side.

Stud lighting on the path into Richmond Park.

A raised crossing leading into Richmond Park.

The far end of Oatlands Square features a raised crossing, much neater than at the entrance.

Oatlands Square, with a sculpture and seating off to the side, leaving the path unobstructed.

Plenty of tyre tracks in the frost, and the lamppost (previously in the middle of the path as seen in #86772) has been relocated to the edge.

A new path at the Clay Pit local nature reserve.

New paths at the Clay Pit local nature reserve. The surface is gravel so not so good for cycling, but was frozen solid with frost when I visited.

A new path into the Clay Pit local nature reserve.

FAO @Darkerside @GoBikeGlasgow @isersmalone New Balvicar St cycle gate. https://t.co/hsgCQah4xm [A site where car parking regularly blocked the cycle track entrance before e.g. #93805.]

Lidl has at last installed some cycle parking at its Woodside store.

This kind of (relatively) cheap and quick infrastructure would help so much in so many places... more please #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/dcsPJRxYNB

I do like the finished Bridge to Nowhere... #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/6Csts2i7sg

Instead of the direct PRW, council would prefer cyclists use the quieter route following NCN7 #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/jNLcWpRARp

New floating bus stop on Pollokshaws Road in use… more please. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/9LWDK0nH0R

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 when you are on an okay route ✅ ( albeit narrow ?)sculpture ✅ then closure and diversion ❌ https://t.co/tj6cLxEY75

Clyde Pl cycle lane - possibly highest quality one in Glasgow? #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/AI4UvoOXeA

I do like segregated paths where they occur. This one at Tradeston is a bit wiggly but still better than traffic. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/cKgtvFcSpv

Not perfect but I like it a lot. If only it joined up with lots more. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 #hometime https://t.co/sqDFA406q0

This bit on London Rd is good, tho traffic lights are oddly synched. If you follow route to Saltmarket, it vanishes. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/MG2uePiEU2

Shared cycle/walking path from Transport Museum is generally good to use, even with puddles! #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/sCKhbmu0Qq

Good. More please? #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/OBuZtvMYaM

Fern Lane is well surfaced (for a back lane) and has a single bollard to prevent through motor traffic, making it a useful alternative to the busy Crow Road..

Replacement for Checkpoint Shelley (see #26285).

Nice job! Makes cycling along the Clyde so much nicer @GlasgowCC @SustransScot #NCN75 https://t.co/pSQNMVmIkn

Bikepods in Partick. More information at http://www.scottishhousingnews.com/10489/cycle-pods-land-in-partick-to-encourage-healthy-commutes/

No break in the cycle lane for this minor side road. I'm not sure that this 'Road Narrows' sign is still needed, since the rest of the road has been narrowed to match the section ahead, and in what is now a 30mph zone having two seems pa ... [more]

I don't know why Glasgow hasn't provided angled kerbs on the divider strip as it has elsewhere.

These two wouldn't be on the road if it weren't for the protected cycle lanes. But see #90599.

Plenty of cycle parking capacity at Anniesland station, unlike at Partick.

Cycle parking outside new Lidl store. Much better than the nearby Morrisons store.

Path in Wyndford being widened, rerouted and resurfaced, providing more direct route between Kelvin Walkway and Southmuir Place.

Glasgow's first Advance Green cycle light, allowing right turns into Bridge Street for a few seconds before motor traffic gets the green light to do likewise.

A new surfaced path has replaced the previous boggy access to the Kelvin Walkway from Bantaskin St, seen in #58918.

Pedal on Parliament feeder ride on Shields Road

Traffic calming by width restrictions that force motorists to slow right down when leaving Edinburgh Road, and prevent wider vehicles using the local roads as a rat-run.

A bus stop bypass on Paisley Road cycletrack.

Lambhill Stables is now a café

A bus stop bypass with a zebra crossing in Wallacewell Road.

Newly installed light segregation on Wallacewell Road.

A dropped kerb to access the St Andrew's Suspension Bridge from McNeil Street has now been installed.

A nice wide toucan crossing across Ballater Street.

The path past the Rowing Club is now surfaced, with LED catseye lights.

The path network in the former athletes' village includes a few unusual features such as this bridge across the water feature, and this plaque explaining a bit about the village.

The path network in the former athletes' village connects everything together much better than many other modern housing developments.

New path connecting Dalmarnock to the new bridge across the River Clyde to the new Cuningar Loop park.

Cathedral St Next Bike bike hire terminal.

Newly installed dropped kerbs for cycling through to Galloway St, although this couple headed for the footway to avoid the reversing car in the turning head.

New straight and lit cyclepath replacing steps outside the Sheriff Court. The old path next to the river has been retained for pedestrians.

It's cold, so jeans and hoodie for cycling journey. The fixings for the bollard nearest the camera appear to be loose.

Apart from the pointless wiggle, quite good.

New build out and dropped kerb on Claythorn Street #glasgowcycling https://t.co/qwbkEQV2py

New cycle-through in Springburn #permeability #glasgowcycling https://t.co/nFCKiO6g2G

The new section of cycleway along Clyde Place.

The George V Bridge crossing in the Clyde Place cycleway, where a parallel arrangement for pedestrians and cyclists has been used.

The start of the new protected cycle lane on Glasgow Bridge

The start of the new protected cycle lane on Glasgow Bridge.

New infra heading southbound on the A77 - ends at a toucan. Better with at least! @S4CGlasgow @carsickglasgow https://t.co/jVJaP0NsfE

A newly opened up road closure next to Hampden Stadium.

Beautiful new filtered permeability on one of the streets I use as a shortcut - big improvement! @S4CGlasgow https://t.co/ChvFGNH15J
