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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 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.

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

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.

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.

A toucan crossing across the Springburn Road sliproads.

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

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.

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.

The paint has gone, leaving just the green surfacing.

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 Washington street. Ample space for a ramp for bikes (& wheel chair enabled ♿️glaswegians) wall needs work anyway... https://t.co/fJShUqmsVW

On the plus side, a while since I cycled on Cessnock St... so glad to see it's now a little less potholed! :) #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/neb3xkZPoB

Back on the north of the M8, NCN7 reverts to blue signs over infra... and conflict with drivers assuming priority. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/FnqH1cQrq3

This alternative route to direct PRW relies heavily on blue signs instead of safe infrastructure. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/1S3RVH3vUF

Victoria Road will be SO much better once the South City Way is built. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/PRitMmRk9n

M8 was built on the Monkland Canal

Old Dumbarton Road with the cycleway on the far side, passing an old gate.

The point on Old Dumbarton Road where the cycleway crosses to the opposite footway.

Crow Road has a local access road for a distance approaching Anniesland (and the listed Anniesland Tower), but no alternative to the main carraigeway through Jordanhill to the south.

A split toucan crossing across the western hospital entrance on Govan Road, but no obvious signs allowing cycling on the footway, and the eastern entrance a short distance away has ordinary pedestrian-only signals.

As part of the Fastlink bus priority scheme, buses were meant to turn right onto Govan Road from the now abandoned segregated bus lane on the left.

As part of the bus priority, buses are allowed to turn right (into the bus station) from the left-hand lane, but the traffic signals all along the Fastlink route do not seem to change with the approach of buses.

If cycling isn't allowed on the footway on this side of Shieldhall Road, then why the toucan crossing?

The footways each side of the A8 Shieldhall Road are largely identical, but the council has decided that cycling is only allowed on one of them.

A replacement bridge for Bredisholm Road over the widened M73 motorway.

It must be the weather that puts people off cycling in Glasgow, or the hills...

It's the widest zebra crossing I've ever seen, but why are the Belisha Beacons covered up?

A cycle bypass has been built for the junction, but left vulnerable to blockage by car parking. Again, no signage.

Part of Tinto Road is part of the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route.

The painted cycle lanes start just after the Broomhouse roundabout (M74 motorway junction) and then encounter a bus stop. A stepped ramp footbridge has been provided for pedestrians (including bus passengers) to cross the road.

The end of the protected cycle lanes in Broomhouse, and where it all starts to fall apart.

The junction before the start of the protected cycle lanes on Hamilton Road.

Hamilton Road on the approach to the Broomhouse cycle lanes.

Contraflow cycling on the road to Yorkhill Hospital. Not much room for passing other than vacant car parking spaces, but downhill for an easy restart.

Forge Retail Park's service access - "Service vehicles only, no vehicular or pedestrian access to retail park"!

The kerb shown in #65650 has had an asphalt ramp added so what was meant to be a high quality gateway now looks a bit botched! A bollard has been removed and the motorists are taking advantage of the unenforced double yellows.

A green strip has appeared at the new Blythswood St contraflow (foreground) and with-flow (background) cycle lane. Awaiting lining and signage.

A new contraflow cycle lane on Holm St, still awaiting signage.

The width restriction shown in #88851, and also showing the massive over-capacity of Edinburgh Road.

On the right of the crash barrier the A89 dual carriageway and its single footway, to the left the currently shut path beneath the bridges southwards. Off to the left by the fence, the path to Rhindmuir Road.

The current start of the Paisley Road protected cycle track on road from retail park.

Toucan crossings to access the Paisley Road cycle track.

The cycle lane could do with a sweep, but the newly installed light segregation extends the cycle provision to the end of Wallacewell Road.

An 'End of Cycle Route' sign approaching the Northgate Road roundabout, but now the cycle route continues along to the end of Wallacewell Road. I don't know why the traffic island encroaches into the cycle lane.
