An improvement at last at Doune Quadrant and Doune Gardens. Not perfect, but at least usable on a standard bike.

The road markings on part of Alderman Road have been renewed, including a buffer strip between the parking bays and the cycle lane, but there's really no point in painting it less than the width of a car away from the kerb.

A poor end to the footway from The Antonine Road at the Goals access road, part of the Drumchapel Way signed walking route.

A poor quality shared-use footway on Halgreen Avenue. The other side of the road doesn't even have a footway, even though it is outside a school!

Kinfauns Drive outside the Drumchapel Shopping Centre and Health Centre. Bike parking both sides but access restricted by extensive use of guard railings. The Drumchapel Way crosses the road here and the signs can just be seen.

The Drumchapel Way leaves Southdeen Avenue and doubles back into the Garscadden Burn Park.

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

I waited 4 sequences of Argyle st/ Jamaica st🚦- this remained red (having dodged a taxi who’d pulled in and parked on the cycle lane). We simply won’t shift people to cycling if even the limited infrastructure doesn’t work @Glasgow ... [more]

Precisely no-one ends their journey here, so why does the cycle lane end here?

Since my last visit painted cycle lanes have appeared on Hamilton Road west of Daldowie Road. Perhaps some of the extensive hatching could have been sacrificed in order to provide some segregation.

According to Network Rail, the railway bridge on Muirhead Road has been "rebuilt stronger and wider to enable two-way traffic, cycle route and pedestrian footpath". I don't see a cycle route. https://www.networkrailmediacentre.co.uk/news ... [more]

This appears to be the end of the Dyke Road cycleway and the cycle route to the new BMX centre in Knightswood Park. I'm surprised the footway hasn't been widened behind the toucan crossing traffic signals to allow more room for turning.

The traffic signals on Alderman Road have acquired a cycle advance green of about 6 seconds before the full green in one direction, plus a toucan crossing on this side for those cycling down the footway of Lincoln Avenue.

The Advance Stop Line box has acquired a stop line across the cycle lane too.

This is what happens when you resurface the car driving lane and not the cycle lane. A few years later and the surface has deteriorated so much that it can barely support the road markings.

The new cycle track on Archerhill Road turns into Lincoln Avenue and is no use for getting to Knightswood Cross or Anniesland.

The road does not extend as far as the flats in Lauderdale Gardens, making room for some grass and trees. But no dropped kerbs at either end of the path to assist with cycling through the area.

No dropped kerb at the end of the path linking the two halves of Turnberry Road, so anyone wanting to cycle along the path has to cycle along the footway for a little bit too.

Filtered permeability in Sydenham Lane.

Traffic light crossing

The path cyclists are signed along in #100509 does not have a dropped kerb at the end, although there is one is a short distance along the footway near the mini-roundabout.

A pedestrian crossing across Great Western Road that could be upgraded to accommodate cycling between Kearn Avenue and Keal Avenue.

A pedestrian crossing across Great Western Road that could be upgraded to accommodate cycling between Keal Avenue and Kearn Avenue.

A major road crossing, with the direct route across the dual carriageway blocked by a barrier at the far side and no dropped kerb, and only a pedestrian crossing to the left to get across to the residential roads on the far side.

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

The spacious Great Western Road, with no space set aside for safe cycling.

Great Western Road - plenty of room but no protected space for cycling.

No room for cycle infrastructure on Great Western Road? There seems to be ample room for everything else.

Broken bollards and broken speed cushions on Netherton Road.

My thanks to @GlasgowCC for cutting back shubbery blind-siding cyclists at this difficult junction on Pollokshaws Rd . Cycles giving way to vehicles at the junction is not great but the poor view of the vehicles from the high vegetation mad ... [more]

An uphill section on the farm access road and cycle route adjacent to the new M8 motorway.

Bredisholm Road resurfaced with a smooth surface.

A new farm access road created as part of the M8 motorway upgrade project.

The disused cattle grid on Bredisholm Road survived all the M8 motorway upgrade works.

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

The opening on the right leads to the NCN7 Loch Lomond cycle path, but there is no actual path, just open ground (see #99545).

@EmmaHalliday1 @magnatom @GoBikeGlasgow Someone’s taking the message to the street. https://t.co/PaZshx9SdY

The road layout at the Govan Road/Golspie St junction due to the Fastlink busway. Not particularly cycle friendly.

The final evidence I could see of the cycle route along Summertown Road. It just vanishes after here.

On-road provision on Summertown Road.

The Summertown Road cycle route leaves the shared footway for the carriageway. Spot the clues.

The footway across the far side of the junction is shared use, but the crossing is for pedestrians only. But the previous shared-use sign was back at #99434. Is this one continuous route or two unrelated shared-use footways? The drainage ... [more]

The path joins the car park without a dropped kerb for cyclists to rejoin the carriageway. All that matters seems to be car parking.

A small path network connects Craighall Street to the adjoining areas but could be tidier.

One road exits to Paisley Road West, the one opposite only has pedestrian access. A missed opportunity to improve cycle permeability for local journeys. 20mph zones only on side streets in Glasgow.

Milnpark Street - no through route to Cornwall Street, and no vehicular access to Milnpark Gardens either. No attempt to cater for cycling. As for those road markings in the foreground - they worked well!

The start of the toucan crossing chain from the former Harry Ramsden's restaurant to the Paisley Road cycle track.

Toucan crossings over Paisley Road and the sliproad from Carnoustie Street, under the Kingston Bridge.

The shared use sign (see #65297) for the Broomielaw footway has been removed and signs now direct cyclists to the Clyde Walkway. But old habits die hard.

The road closure in Ashley Street has a sort of hump to facilitate cycling, and some parking stands.

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

There are no route signs visible at the Colleges Cycle Route turn from St Mungo Avenue towards North Hanover Street.

A new dropped kerb at the Caledonian University entrance, with cycle symbol, for turning from the main carriageway. But the cycle route is on the opposite footway.

I guess the best way onto the Pacific Drive shared use footway is via the toucan crossing on the left. They don't appear to think anyone would approach from this direction.

New red cycle lights and low level miniature lights on the Argyle Street contraflow lane.

The contraflow lane on Gordon Street, with a cargobike and a hire bike in use.

Access to NCN75 Clyde Walkway is possible from Dunlop Street (and from the cycle track at Stockwell Place #30509), but not vice versa since Dunlop Street is one-way.

A rough surface at each junction, but the footway through this residential area has been designated shared-use, with all the hazards that might be expected, such as car drivers reversing cars out of driveways.

A rough surface for cycling, but barely noticeable in a car.

A 'Route recommended for pedal cycles' sign on the eastern portion of Govanhill Street. There are no direction signs at the junctions on this cycle route, so you just have to peer down each side street in case the route has changed directio ... [more]

A 'Route recommended for pedal cycles' sign on Batson Street.

A 'Route recommended for pedal cycles' sign on Preston Place, which is signed as a No Through Road.

A clumsy section of cycle route at Preston Place heading towards Govanhill Park, with a dropped kerb that is vulnerable to blockage by car parking.

A 'No Through Road' sign, and a 'Route recommended for pedal cycles' sign facing the wrong way.

A cycle route sign in Govanhill

A 20mph zone and a cycle route sign in Govanhill Street

There is a cycle track linking Kingarth Street with Victoria Road, but it's right at the bus stop. Hopefully this will be sorted by the South City Way works.

A right turn cycle lane for avoiding the roundabout when going into the end section of Nithsdale Road or turning into Moray Place, but could do with some cycle markings and an 'except cycles' plate below the 'No Right Turn' sign.

The proposed cycleway for Jura Street will be on the left side, and end at a toucan crossing across Paisley Road West to Bellahouston Park. So this door-zone cycle lane will be removed.

Hopefully the new cycle route proposed for Jura Street will fix the problem of the missing dropped kerb at the ramp up to the M8 motorway underpass.

Jura Street where a new cycle route is proposed linking the M8 motorway underpass to Bellahouston Park.

The parking layby is again too narrow for ordinary cars to be reliably parked within, so eroding the buffer zone that is meant to contain door openings.

Cycle lane or not?

The painted cycle lane on Meiklewood Road goes around the bend, then vanishes for a bit.

The cycle lane on Meiklewood Road starts to move out from the kerb.

The cycle route is also a recommended route for lorry driving!

To get to the Meiklewood Road cycle lanes (see #98922), you need to go around the roundabout.

A zebra crossing across Meiklewood Road, but hardly tied into the local road network on the other side. How many people climb up the grass bank rather than follow the path I wonder.

A shared use path has been provided alongside Moss Road, from Langcroft Road to the Shieldhall Roundabout where it just stops.

The junction of Skipness Drive and Drive Road, near the Govan Road roundabout.

The roundabout now includes a shortcut for Fastlink buses only. No cycling through this! Also, the traffic signals for the bus gate have been replaced by a Give Way.

A dropped kerb is to be added for access to the toucan crossing. Surely something that should have been done when this layout was originally built.

A back lane between Victoria Park Gardens South and Marlborough Avenue signed as a recommended route for cyclists. There is a gate across part of the width of the lane (just visible) to stop through motor traffic.

No dropped kerb to access toucan crossing across Fountainwell Road from adjacent road-end, and some subsidence in the footway.

A toucan crossing across the Springburn Road sliproads.

The new road layout at the junction of Govan Road and Lorne Street.

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.

The layout entering Oatlands Square. Lots of signs and posts, but an attractive path through the middle.

The end of the diversion due to the collapse of the South Bank cycle path, and reversion to the path.

Due to the cycle path collapse at Adelphi Street, the cycle route is diverted through the car park.

The finishing touches remain to be done at the new path into the Clay Pit local nature reserve.

Not a dual carriageway, but two parallel two-way roads, the nearest of which is reserved for buses only. The footway on this side is to be converted (or just redesignated?) for shared use.

This puddle gets splashed off the side of the bridge and onto unsuspecting underpass users by passing vehicles.

The paint has gone, leaving just the green surfacing.

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 The 2015 Silverburn Cycling & Walking Route has never finished. This crossing is yet be for implemeted for cyclists https://t.co/KQMydCFScf

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 The chicanes on Mansewood Rd force cyclists into the road, head on against cars. Make cycle paths to each side https://t.co/04DfR4uruH

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 All the pavement w of Pollok Park is shared use except the 100m from the Bowling Club to P'llk S'hws Wt Station???? https://t.co/UwwNb5HlI6
