Pop-up cycle lane on Hawthorn Street. At this point, it is a door-zone painted cycle lane next to marked car parking bays.

Pop-up cycle lane on Hawthorn Street. At each of the signal-controlled junctions, the inside lane reverts to motoring use.

Pop-up cycle lane on Hawthorn Street. Hatching has been removed from the centre of the road to make room for the cycle lanes.

Pop-up cycle lane on Hawthorn Street. This bus stop appears to have been forgotten for the bus boarder treatment. Hatching has been removed from the centre of the road to make room for the cycle lanes, which much improve safety for as lo ... [more]

Pop-up cycle lane on Hawthorn Street. At this point, the door-zone painted cycle lane (see #156185) leads into the remains of the original cycle lane in Hawthorn Street (see #25292), without addressing the problem of them being on the wrong ... [more]

Pop-up cycle lane on Hawthorn Street.

Light segregation installed on the Colleges Route cycle lanes in Clarence Drive. The armadillos break for the pedestrian crossing. The first time I've seen the lane this clear in ages.

Light segregation installed on the Colleges Route cycle lanes in Clarence Drive. A big improvement on #112288. Ahead are two parking bays, the first is located outside of the cycle lane, the second is kerbside and the cycle lane goes around ... [more]

Light segregation installed on the Colleges Route cycle lanes in Clarence Drive. The transition between road and bus boarder is rough. The parking bay up ahead has been located outside of the cycle lane.

Light segregation being installed on the Colleges Route cycle lanes in Clarence Drive.

Intermittent armadillo protection for cycle lane on Gorbals Street and onto Victoria Bridge.

Another short section of cycle lane in Gorbals Street, this time with armadillos.

The painted cycle lane on Gorbals Street zig-zags around some parking bays before returning to the kerbside.

Cycling on Gorbals Street. A two-way facility is due to be built as part of the South City Way, so this is temporary.

A total lack of cycle facilities on Govan Road at the Pacific Drive junction. On the right is an approach lane for the Fastlink busway on Pacific Drive.

The cycle route crosses Govan Road from Burleigh Street to Pearce Street.

A pop-up two-way cycle lane has been provided on Dumbreck Road, between the Pollok Park entrance and the motorway junction, due to the inadequate shared footway. The bus stop has been closed, and not provided with a bus boarder.

No dropped kerb at the end of MacLellan Street, at the path to Gower Street, although the kerb does get quite low nearer the fence.

The surface of Lymburn Street is rather bumpy, with poorly relaid cobbles.

A slightly odd arrangement for accessing the cycle lane on Kelvin Way.

The end of the pop-up cycle lane in Bilsland Drive. Traffic immediately takes to the inside of the road, to form two lanes of traffic approaching the Balmore Road junction. The guy on the bike didn't get through the next phase on the traffi ... [more]

The doorzone pop-up cycle lane returns to the kerbside in Bilsland Drive, but the car parking continues towards the pinchpoint.

The start of the next section of pop-up cycle lane in Bilsland Drive. The centre line has been realigned.

No eastbound pop-up cycle lane on this part of Bilsland Drive, and a van parked in the westbound lane, despite the armadillos.

The pop-up cycle lane in Bilsland Drive at the junction with Shannon Street. The parking layby outside the shops is not wide enough for the vehicles parked there, leading to them spilling over into the cycle lane.

Someone using Lochburn Road to gain access to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath towards Bishopbriggs and Kirkintilloch. The car driver made a sharp stop. Construction work has now started on a new bridge across the canal at Stockingfield Junc ... [more]

No dropped kerb at Windsor Street/Windsor Terrace to get through to North Woodside Road at the Lidl supermarket.

Bus boarders have now been installed on the Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane, and await markings. The transition is a bit rough, but not as bad as the step for bus passengers at the raised kerb.

Bus boarders have now been installed on the Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane, and await markings.

The end of the Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane, at the Cowdenhill Road/Lincoln Avenue junction. The cycle lane stops just after the bus stop. The bus boarder is still under construction.

The Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane. Some of the traffic cylinders were missing on this section.

The Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane. Note that the bus driver is picking up the passenger on the street corner rather than at the bus stop since no alternative arrangements have been made at most of the bus stops yet.

The Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane at the Blairdardie Drive junction.

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

A gap in the Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane.

No bus boarder at this bus stop, requiring anyone cycling to overtake stopped buses in the busy outside lanes. The cycle lane starts just after the bus stop.

No cycle lane on this section of Great Western Road, just arrows urging drivers to move out.

Thank you @GlasgowCC ! https://t.co/N49JEwGMQ3 [Rectifies problem in #117842]

@GlasgowCC @SustransScot That's great! But why the parking spots just down the road before the British Linen Building? They have not been there before, there is no need and it generates a dangerous bottleneck between opening car doors on th ... [more]

The advisory cycle lane in University Avenue changes to a mandatory cycle lane, but the double yellow lines stop.

A poor surface in the University Avenue cycle lane, and incursion by a car driver.

The wet tyre tracks in the Gordon Street contraflow cycle lane reveal that some motorists are entering it in lieu of slowing down to make a tighter turn.

The new bus gate on George Square necessitates a bus gate on South Frederick Street too.

A pop-up bus gate in George Square south, with car parking removed. George Square east and west are closed to all vehicular traffic.

Road narrowing and off-side bus lane, approaching the new bus gate at George Square.

Car parking removed in Cochrane Street for an off-side bus lane, associated with the new bus gate in George Square.

Off-side bus lane in Montrose Street, associated with the new George Square bus gate. There was a proposal from the council to create a contraflow cycle lane here by creating a shared-use footway outside the registry office, but was defe ... [more]

The pop-up cycle lane on Great Western Road is to end at Lincoln Avenue. After that, there are just discontinuous peak hour bus lanes.

No provision for safe cycling on Duntreath Avenue.

Glasgow cyclists, be very wary of the new cycle path at Mosspark Boulevard & Drumbrek Road, The removal of cones means cars are treating it as a left hand car lane. You could get hit by oncoming traffic https://t.co/HdESW6m0eK

Nice motor-traffic free environment in rebuilt Argyle Street alignment in Anderston, but awkward to get into with a bike due to no dropped kerbs at either end. Outdoor bike parking has been provided at each entrance for residents.

The pop-up contraflow cycle lane in Gordon Street, outside Central Station. The temporary 'One Way' signs are incorrect.

Another view of the contraflow cycle lane on Argyle Street. The cycle lanes could easily have been painted with a smoother transition in road position. See also #139322.

The contraflow cycle lane on Argyle Street has an abrupt change of direction, following the kerb. See also #139324.

The junction of Renfield Street and Gordon Street, with the Union Street bus gate ahead, and the pop-up contraflow cycle lane on Gordon Street to the right. Proper 'No Right Turn except cycles' signs have been used on the traffic signals, w ... [more]

@GetGlesgaMoving @GlasgowCC @GoBikeGlasgow @policescotland Hope McDonald's being charged lane rental??! @CBTransport Where is alternative bus stop situated?? If there's room for a dedicated lane for Macdonald's drive thru, there's room fo ... [more]

If only there was some space for cycling on Queen Margaret Drive.

Pedestrians aren't meant to use the north side of the gyratory at the Hydro, and it isn't much more suitable for cycling either. There used to be a direct underpass link towards the SECC here, but it was filled in when the gyratory was b ... [more]

The gyratory doesn't even have a footway at the back of the Hydro car park, and with the SECC covered walkway closed, people are finding their way to Finnieston as best they can.

The gyratory at the Hydro. To get back onto Finnieston Street, take lane 3 through this junction, lane 2 around the corner, and regain the inside lane after the next turn.

To cycle up Finnieston St, one needs to traverse the gyratory around the Hydro car park.

The recommencement of the popup cycle lane at Lancefield Quay, where the parallel NCN75 riverside cycle path is shut due to a building fire.

Unlike the temporary arrangements westbound, there is nothing to say cycling is allowed on the Fastlink busway eastbound.

The end of the Fastlink busway on Anderston Quay, and in the distance, the recommencement of the popup cycle lane. The traffic signals detected my approach, and are quick to change.

Cycling legally on the Fastlink busway at last! (But only in this direction.)

Caught out by the road markings, or a change of mind when the traffic signals changed? The sign reads "Cyclists use Fastlink Carriageway", and a tiny "& cycle symbol" added amidst the "Bus Only" wording.

I guess the road markings are to remind bus drivers turning onto the Fastlink busway to look out for cyclists, but they appear to suggest to cyclists to go straight on, when the yellow sign says to use the busway.

The popup cycle lane recommences in Broomielaw, after George V Bridge, while NCN75 U-turns down a ramp onto the riverside path. The footway along this section ahead is no longer shared-use, but still sees people cycling along it, even with ... [more]

The popup cycle lane continues onto Broomielaw, passing under the Central Station bridge.

The recommencement of the popup cycle lane in Clyde Street, after Victoria Bridge.

A traffic lane removed on Clyde Street and turned into a popup cycle lane.

Start of temporary cycle lane on Clyde Street. People joining from either the carriageway through the cones, or from the ramp from the shared footway.

Toucan crossing on Beith Street out of use. This road can be quite busy at peak times.

No dropped kerb at the end of the Kelvin Walkway access path at Lochgilp Street, although there is one slightly further on at the steps.

A connection from Bantaskin Street to Cowal Road, although there is no formal crossing across the latter, and not even a dropped kerb there. Should the awkward bit of the Kelvin Walkway (at #100566) ever be rebuilt, this will be the diversi ... [more]

A tree surrounded by a concrete plinth in Bantaskin Street. The path to the Kelvin Walkway now has a barrier saying 'No Entry' at its entrance.

A dropped kerb has been installed at the end of the Garriochmill Way path.

A flooding problem on the road to Robroyston station.

A short length of painted cycle lane appears next to the cycle lane sign. The previous cycle lane sign didn't have any cycle lane.

No safe crossing of the A752 at Commonhead Road, on the Seven Lochs Trail, and not even a dropped kerb! Just a promise of a future bridge across the M73 and A752, if it gets funding.

The Seven Lochs Trail crosses the A752 and goes into Drumpellier Country Park. But there's not even a dropped kerb to help with the crossing of this busy A road at Commonhead Road.

A poor transition between path and road at Balcurvie Road.

The entrance to the Robroyston station car park on the Millerston side. A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign but nothing to say motorists can't drive all the way to their parking spaces.

Egress from the Robroyston station car park on the Millerston side is via the bus turning circle.

A general view of the Millerston side car park at the new Robroyston rail station, seen from the station footbridge.

A general view from the Robroyston station footbridge looking northwest towards the M80 motorway junction. The two roundabouts on the meandering station access road can be seen before the massive roundabout at the motorway junction itself.

A general view of the car park and road layout at Robroyston station, looking north, seen from the station footbridge. The road access on this side is somewhat indirect.

The entrance to Robroyston railway station.

Some sort of ramp between the roadway and the footway, then a footway crossing on the approach to the station access. There's another of these ramps at #112866.

The home straight for the road to Robroyston station. An unusual location for a 'No Through Road' sign.

A roundabout where a bend would have sufficed. At least the previous roundabout has imminent plans for actual roads leading off to a new housing development.

The station is straight ahead, but again footway users have to go beyond the roundabout to cross, then head off to the right, to another roundabout.

Footway users have to go beyond the roundabout to cross.

There's nothing to indicate whether the footway that came from the toucan crossings back at the motorway junction is shared-use or not. In any case, anyone using the footway has a particularly indirect route to the station. At this roundabo ... [more]

The exit for Robroyston station on the M80 junction roundabout.

A cover over one of the traffic signals at the partly signalised roundabout at the M80 Robroyston junction at Saughs Road.

A toucan crossing at Saughs Avenue. There is no indication whether or not the shared footways continue beyond the crossing up Saughs Avenue.

A toucan crossing across Saughs Avenue.

Since there is only a shared footway on this side of Saughs Road at this point, anyone using it wanting to go to Robroyston station must go left to cross Saughs Avenue before starting to head towards the station.
