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

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

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.

@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 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

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.

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.

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 flooding problem on the road to Robroyston station.

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.

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]

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

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.

The shared-use sign seen in #112689 is single-sided, and there is only a dropped kerb crossing on the southwest and southeast sides of the roundabout, not the northeast side.

No cycle infrastructure on Crow Road through Anniesland Cross.

The staggered toucan crossings across Berryknowes Road do not even line up with the path from the flats.

Toucan crossings at the junction between Berryknowes Road and Kingsland Drive, although there are no cycle routes or shared footways leading up to them.

The straight across access from Kingsland Drive into the road in front of the Berryknowes Road flats has been closed off, without exempting cycles.

The footway markings on Leverndale Road end into an Advance Stop Line at the Crookston Road junction. There is no cycle provision on the main road. If there is moving traffic, this layout means cyclists waiting until the lights turn red ... [more]

Unusual markings on the footway.

Langhaul Road approaching the Leverndale Road roundabout. Suddenly cycle marking start appearing on the footway, without any dropped kerbs to get there.

Someone got paid for this work at Chirmorie Place!

The cycle lane approaching the Lidl store ends abruptly.

A huge roundabout for a junction between two residential roads.

The Hurlet junction is arranged for the convenience of motorists at the expense of all other road users.

The A726 dual carriageway approaching the Hurlet junction.

The A726 dual carriageway approaching the Hurlet.

Unprotected painted cycle lanes on Clarence Drive, with parking on one side of the road.

The new road layout at the junction of Fountainwell Road and St Rollox Drive does not include a connection to the new cycleway. The speed of some of the traffic on the new road seemed quite high.

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!

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?

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 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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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

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]

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

#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

6 lanes of motor traffic, parking, + massive central reservation, but no space for cycling infrastructure on GWR? #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/1mTi2F2rD8

Told by council that there's no room for cycle infra here on Pollokshaws Rd. There's space. There isn't the will. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/0neB62T0Cv

Biggest problem cycling in the city centre is you're only ever seconds away from being on the right of a 4-lane road #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/OIH1RcLmyZ

More wasted space for empty Fastlink lanes on Pacific Drive whilst NCN7 is confined to a shared path. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/sz4iIpjQ0x

Also NCN7 is lacking some basic infra on crossings - why no Toucan across Corkerhill Rd? #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/2jKrrFISy0

As with PRW, Crookston Road is wide enough for good infrastructure and has nothing. Such a waste. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/xpqbxEHepv

Stats show how many cycle on Paisley Road West. Wide enough for good infrastructure... completely devoid of any. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/I54olBeTir

Cyclist’s choice: traffic on Broomielaw or shared-path that’s awkward to exit. Meanwhile, Fastlink lanes sit empty #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/vmPR6ZkEgT

@GlasgowCC Tale of 2 councils: Part 6 It does reappear a little further along Kilmarnock Rd, right in the door zone. Deathtrap #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/pfjkHV6NG6

[via email] Govan Rd: This takes the biscuit. 3-stage, double-dog-leg Toucan crossing, part of NCN7 #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/QMXQoe9CK9

[via email] Finnieston Bridge - not shared use, but widely used to avoid struggling up the hill with traffic behind #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/LYZ4guEcEv

[via email] Clyde Walkway: fallen here avoiding oncoming cyclists due to the gaps between concrete and paving. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/3GXs7yXMdv

Critical unprotected road crossings around Clyde Tunnel and Crow Rd #noinfra #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/gJVmhc7sjs

[via email] Gate to Festival Park. Fastlink construction removed the dropped kerb, replaced with 3 undropped kerbs #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/OMViXRkBbX

"quietway"/ meat grinder pinch point on Ledi Rd. Really needs filtering to remove vehicles #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/aQgEw6hfHb

Barrier ruined by a driver on a shared use path. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/Q5rM6nOEnU

Not sure I can do this justice in photos. Alignment with dropped kerb is... bad. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 Gorbals Street https://t.co/5Z69lUGAoE

Do you think this barrier was mangled by a bicycle? Good job there is a segregated cycle track! #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/jZGfKH72FS

Most of PRW is spent in the quasi cycle lane between parked cars and flowing traffic in the right lane. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/zSpbQukJLJ

Of course there are Advance Stop Lines, but we know how useful they are. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/qdfleHVqk4

Paisley Road West has next to no cycling infrastructure despite being a main route out West. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/yZa6xgA3C0

Oh well. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/4DtxEuAiZh

A complete lack of cycle infrastructure outside the former Western Infirmary.

NCN7. No idea how to do this legally, safely & avoiding grass. Carefully dodging left turning cars from main road? #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/tDWHotHSKP
