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.

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.

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

The exit for Robroyston station on the M80 junction roundabout.

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.

The cycle lanes have pretty much vanished from Robroyston Gate.

The cycle lanes painted when the business park was first built have all but disappeared from the road. Not that they made much sense.

A large empty junction at Arklet Road/Lunan Place/Arngask Road.

Ramped access to the underpass under the M8, linking Barfillan Drive and Jura Street to Craigton Road. This is the nearest dropped kerb if coming from Jura Street. Lots of roadspace crying out for some reallocation to enable active travel.

A minimalist crossing put in for the Cardonald Quietway. Basically a patch of asphalt on the central reservation. Slightly diagonal too.

Footway cycle markings near Leverndale Hospital.

The start of the cycle markings on the footway of Leverndale Road. Unlike the dropped kerbs at the roundabouts, here the white diagonal line encloses the dropped kerb.

Crossing point at Raeswood Road.

Cycle lanes approaching the Crookston Road junction.

The start of cycle lanes at the Lidl roundabout in Dalmellington Road.

Cycle lanes around the roundabout.

Cycle lanes around the roundabout, handy if you want to turn left.

Nonsense cycle lanes in quiet Dalmellington Road, when cycle provision is really needed on the main road, Crookston Road.

Wide cycle lanes on a residential access road Dalmellington Road, but none on the main A736 Crookston Road to get to here. Also, while pedestrian and emergency vehicle access is available direct to the cul-de-sacs, cycle access is only a ... [more]

Cycle markings on Skipness Drive.

A dropped kerb has indeed been installed (see #98305), providing access to the toucan crossing.

NCN756 road crossing at the north end of Piccadilly Street.

No turns between the new St Rollox Drive and Keppochhill Drive. There is also no connection from the cycleway to Keppochhill Drive industrial estate. Must U-turn at the Keppochhill Road junction crossing.

A new toucan crossing at the junction of Keppochhill Road, Carlisle Street and St Rollox Drive, the new road across the northern edge of the Sighthill redevelopment.

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

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.

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.

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.
