The dropped kerb at the end of Ferry Road is now clear from obstructions (see #173875), but the footway surface is still incomplete.

The cycle off-slip at Finnieston Street allows cyclists to legally leave the carriageway and use the toucan crossing across Lancefield Quay to get to the National Cycle Network route 75, even when the traffic signals are on red. The similar ... [more]

The one remaining cycle off-slip at the Finnieston Street/Clyde Arc junction. The one at #173654 has been blocked off with a railing.

Freshly painted Advance Stop Lines at Anderston Cross, but none at the second stop lines under the motorway bridge.

No progress to report on work at the North Woodside Road/Maryhill Road crossing.

An improvement on #89968 at the end of Anderson Street. A dropped kerb has also been provided to access the road directly. There is a toucan crossing just off to the right as well.

The odd narrow footway arrangement under the Castlebank Street railway bridge approaching NCN7. There is a dropped kerb to join the path immediately after the bridge (see #173856), while the rest of the road is just a dead-end alongside NCN ... [more]

This section of street, which appears to be referred to as Beith Way in the COP26 diversion consultation, turns into B808 Beith Street, although the footway continues straight ahead alongside the wall.

Shared footway on Smith Street and ramp into car park, and access to NCN7 in the background.

The footway of Castlebank Street has been marked as a cycle route in OpenStreetMap, but there is no evidence to say so on the ground. However, it is a gap in the network, more direct and smoother in surface than the parallel NCN7 route, abo ... [more]

I don't know what the purpose of that bar attached to the underside of the bridge is, but there's a bit missing now. I'm sure the edge of the NCN7 cycle path next to the Clydeside Expressway was straight when it was installed, but is now ... [more]

The area under the M8 motorway at Anderston Cross is being painted fancy colours a couple of months before the COP26 conference hits town. The area outside the station frequently resembles a car park.

The area under the M8 motorway at Anderston Cross is being painted fancy colours a couple of months before the COP26 conference hits town.

The area under the M8 motorway at Anderston Cross is being painted fancy colours a couple of months before the COP26 conference hits town.

The area underneath the M8 motorway at Anderston Cross is being painted a couple of months before the COP26 conference hits town. The Anderston Bridge, Stobcross Bridge, and various roads are proposed to be closed during the conference, and ... [more]

The contraflow cycle lane on Norfolk Street exists to provide a link from Coburg Street at the back of Bridge Street Subway station to the east.

I noticed this dropped kerb at the Advance Stop Line box and investigated whether it was installed to aid cycling from St George's Road to the toucan crossing chain through the junction, but no, it was left over from a pedestrian crossing t ... [more]

Start of repainted narrow door-zone cycle lane in Whitefield Road.

Narrow door-zone cycle lane repainted.

Cycling By Design shows that the correct line to use for breaks in a mandatory cycle lanes passing junctions is a warning line (diagram 1004), not a short broken line.

A widened and protected cycle lane, compared to what was there previously, although still gaps in the protection at the pedestrian crossing.

The partly protected cycle lane in Provanmill Road is slightly wider than the advisory cycle lane it replaced. The pedestrian crossing is not working.

Commerce Street, with bus lane ahead.

Start of the faded door-zone cycle lane in Maxwell Drive. The cycle lane in the opposite direction has already expired by this point.

Toucan crossing across Mosspark Boulevard to reach the Dumbreck Road shared footway route across the railway and motorway bridge, heading towards Pollok Country Park. If coming from the west, the grass separates the shared path from the ... [more]

A dropped kerb and diagonal path over to the cycle path alongside Bellahouston Park. It's completely unsigned and unmarked, but it can only be for someone cycling on Mosspark Boulevard wanting to leave the carriageway to use the toucan cros ... [more]

A bus-gate bypass for the Helen Street roundabout on Paisley Road West.

A new section of pop-up bus lane on Paisley Road West.

No right turns from Dumbreck Road into Paisley Road West, just like the opposite side of the junction at #170596.

The cycle route leaves the footway and cyclists can start cycling on the carriageway. A dropped kerb has been provided next to the one remaining railing (there used to be two).

No right turns from Broomloan Road onto Paisley Road West, principally to keep the car traffic moving faster.

The sign permitting cycling in the Fastlink busway has gone, and there is a sign directing cyclists to the shared path along the riverside. However, the crudely altered "Bus and cycle only" road markings remain.

Cycling in the cycle lane on Gorbals Street. The taxi driver driving behind the bus then barged through this group of four cyclists to park in the layby. The permanent cycle provision for this road can't come soon enough!

The Hinshaw Street cycleway at the Maltbarns Street junction. It is not clear what the priorities at the junction might be, but in practice traffic volumes are generally low.

The start of the Garscube Road cycleway, seen coming from the Queens Cross direction. Next time I'll try going between the first and second bollards rather than the second and third which was quite tight.

A split toucan crossing across the Fastlink busway and the main Broomielaw carriageway, connecting the riverside path and Brown Street.

The toucan crossing gives access to the protected South West Cityway cycle route on Shields Road.

The cyclist avoids the pavement cycle lane that the driver up ahead is in the process of parking in.

A short cycle lane approaching traffic signals on St Andrew's Drive.

A dropped kerb, possibly to allow cycling through the road closure in Dalziel Drive at St Andrew's Drive.The dropped kerb on the other side is to the right of the bin.

A parallel cycle zebra crossing across Kennishead Road, for the shared-use cycle route along Barrhead Road.

A humped zebra crossing in Shawbridge Street, this time with Belisha beacons, and also Cyclists Dismount signs.

A humped zebra crossing on Shawbridge Street, without Belisha beacons.

The transition from the path to Bengal Street is a bit messy, since it is missing a bit of asphalt.

A split toucan crossing across Pollokshaws Road, at the end of the path from Bengal Street. A shared footway connects this to the entrance to Pollok Country Park.

The upgraded M77 motorway sliproad crossing at Dumbreck Road. However, the footway beyond is still quite narrow, and the pop-up cycle lane seeks to address this.

Torridon Avenue is closed to motor traffic at its junction with Dumbreck Road, with cycles exempted and gaps provided.

The cycle traffic signals at Dargarvel Avenue, at the Dumbreck Road/Dumbreck Avenue junction. The junction also has toucan crossings around two sides. The shapes of the gaps do not make it easy to make movements straight across the junction ... [more]

A former railway bridge in Carmichael Street that Highways England has proposed for filling in. This one is probably no loss since the area either side has been developed and the railway cutting filled in.

Although armadillos have been provided on one side of this section of Provanmill Road, this side has been left much as before, with the cycle lane outside of the parking layby and now with a narrow buffer zone.

The end of the protected section of cycle lane on Cumbernauld Road, where the Cumbernauld to Glasgow cycle route turns right onto Provanmill Road. The sign is of a non-standard pattern. The carriageway goes from one to three lanes for mo ... [more]

After the bridge, the footway reverts to the east side of the gated section of Bogside Road.

The footway on the gated road changes sides at the bridge, and the remains of Bogside Road disappear into the housing development in the distance.

A strange gap in the lining and armadillo provision on Wallacewell Road.

One of a number of bus boarders that have been provided in the city centre, to allow more space for people waiting for buses. In most cases the footway is too narrow to accommodate both people walking and waiting, but not so much here. This ... [more]

Toucan crossings all around the junction, but are any of the footways actually legal to cycle on? In any case, that street lighting column is blocking the footway.

An asphalt ramp in place of a dropped kerb at the end of the Stobcross Street service road, probably as good as the location can hope for. The path leads to the Stobcross Bridge and NCN756.

A toucan crossing across the Clydeside Expressway sliproad, but not across Finnieston Street. Nothing to say any footway is legal for cycling. The toucan crossing is one of a chain of toucan crossings leading to the path to Minerva Street.

The way into Malls Mire is via the forecourt of the nursery building.

The on-road option for cycling from Aikenhead Road onto Polmadie Road. A central cycle lane has been provided between the left-turn filter lane and the ahead lane for motor traffic.

A Fire Path modified for through cycling, but the signage is unaltered and facing the wrong way. The gap is only marked for cycling in the opposite direction.

The build-outs at the north end of the Corkerhill Road cycle lanes have now been rebuilt with dropped kerbs at each end, allowing access to and from the cycle lanes without pulling out into the outside lane (an improvement over #93383). ... [more]

NCN7 and NCN75 on Linthaugh Road. This residential dual carriageway is traffic calmed with chicanes, but otherwise has nothing to make cycling safer.

A footpath connects the roundabouts of Braidcraft Road and Brockburn Road, where a dual carriageway was not built across the Levern Water. So much room to do something more appropriate with.

The layout of Lyoncross Road, where the inside lane of this residential road is hatched out on one side of the dual carriageway, and used for residential parking on the other.

The build-outs at the north end of the Corkerhill Road cycle lanes have now been rebuilt with dropped kerbs at each end, allowing access to the cycle lanes without pulling out into the outside lane.

Is it a mandatory cycle lane? If so, why is it marked as a straight on and left turn lane? The protection has ended. NCN75 is on the shared footway alongside.

The northern part of Dunlop Street, looking towards Argyle Street pedestrian precinct. Cycle parking is provided next to the bollards. The two rising bollards are both in the lowered position.

A short section of cycle lane on Seaward Street, but not really any use for crossing at the toucan crossing.

Unmarked dropped kerb connecting the southern portion of Shields Road to Nithsdale Road and the rest of Shields Road. The dropped kerb has clearly been retro fitted, but not marked as being for cycling.

Calder Street tie-in to the South City Way on Victoria Road. See also #167148. The parking bay is at least wider than the van for a change.

The section of cycle track on the traffic island between Pollokshaws Road and Cathcart Road has been marked with red surface, unlike anything else in the South City Way to date. Work continues.

Dropped kerbs both sides on the underpass at Cowlairs Road, but stepped ramp up to the path alongside the Springburn Expressway.

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.

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

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]

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. 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.

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

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.

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 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]

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

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

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.
