Former Fire Path at Allander Street where it meets Ashfield Street. No provision for cycling through, although not much in the way of hindrance either, and the area awaits redevelopment. Through motor traffic here would be undesirable due t ... [more]

The route from Erradale Street to the Halloween Pend now has a large flight of steps to get down. Avoid the route if cycling.

The route between Erradale Street and the Halloween Pend is steep, rough, now has a large flight of steps, and is unsuitable for any kind of cycling, so this obstruction is of no particular concern. Just avoid the route entirely.

Steps at Edinburgh Rd on path between Cranhill Park and housing (weren't marked on OSM).

Steps down to path between Cranhill Park and houses. Could have a ramp at side to make it accessible. In distance is a new entrance path into park – smooth tarmac but only 1m or so wide.

An attempt to tidy the area up but flytipping hasn't been eradicated.

Temporary road access to an industrial estate (created when its regular access was blocked by long-term utilities work) now blocked off.

They've finally removed one of the worst barriers on the NCN into Ross Hall Park. Could barely get a regular bike through it let alone in anything slightly bigger before. #spaceforcycling #accessibility https://t.co/4RsK7C80uN [See #9381 ... [more]

Truck parked directly over the cycle path and pedestrian area rather than the directly adjacent parking bay.

A gate with gaps both sides protecting the access path from Great Western Road to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath. The curved walls are similar to gateways created at a number of cycle path accesses around Glasgow.

A gate at the end of the path from the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath at Great Western Road, with gaps both sides, but only access to the footway and westbound carriageway.

The riverside path meets Yoker Ferry Road at the ferry slipway.

No access for cycles at road closure between Milnpark Gardens and Milnpark Street. Only pedestrians can go between the two streets. [Since opened up to cycling, see #166733.] A gully installed the wrong way around creating an unnecessary ... [more]

#NCN756 shut all week due to...dinosaurs #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/It2CTo7obq

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 Bellahouston Park "Guess The Purpose" Random Gate Award nominee https://t.co/fvPBO0svum

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 my favourite fragment of concrete in Glasgow, just by Science Centre. Been there for years. #nodroppedkerb https://t.co/7slQbFYLU7 UPDATE: A dropped kerb has since been provided.

over the hump at Corkerhill stn on Corkerhill Rd heading towards the college & it narrows down to….where do i go ? #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/KXANplRuEx UPDATE 2021: Now sorted, see #168039.

A barrier with a gap at the side on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath.

A flight of steps in the path alongside the south side of the River Clyde, outside the Sheriff Court. UPDATE 2016: Steps now removed, see #84282.

Another instance of there being no dropped kerb at the end of a path in the Village development, this time in Govan Road. [This one has since been rectified, see #95263]

Although there are tiny drainage gaps at each side, this roadblock could easily be altered to properly allow though cycling along Earlspark Avenue. UPDATE June 2016: See #82489

There is no gap for cycles even though the 'No Through Road' signs at #62874 said there would be! UPDATE 2021: Now sorted, see #166541.

There is no gap for cycles even though the 'No Through Road' sign at #62877 said there would be! UPDATE 2021: Now sorted, see #166541.

Cycle lane repainted straight Into parked cars. Poor attempt at segregation, just to make facilities extra comical

No dropped kerb on this side of the road closure, on quiet route to supermarket. Update 2016: Fixed, see #86106.

Kissing gate at Caldercuilt Road entrance to Maryhill Park, with cycle signage UPDATE: This gate has since been replaced with a conventional swing gate.

Kissing gate at entrance to Maryhill Park. This is on the route of the Kelvin Walkway, and is the Summerston scheme's off-road connection to the Kelvin Cycleway. UPDATE: This gate has since been replaced with a conventional swing gate an ... [more]

Steps on riverfront path next to Glasgow Sheriff Court. Plenty of room to ramp these out, the only obstruction to cycling along the south side of the river on this section. UPDATE 2016: Steps now removed, see #84282.

Ashfield Street road closure. There used to be Fire Path signs here, but there isn't much of an obstruction left now. UPDATE: As of April 2014 this road closure has been removed and there is now a standard cross roads at this location.

'Firepath' road closure just south of Ibrox stadium (a Glasgow feature, it seems) - why not add a couple of drop kerbs for bikes?
