Photo listing : general sign/notices (problem)

Just a small partly hidden rectangular sign on the off-side to warn drivers of the cycle track crossing at the exit from the Bunhouse Road Car Park.

The signs here state that a left turn is mandatory, but there is a contraflow cycle lane so cycles can turn right.

Middleton Street is a rare 'Play Street' in Glasgow, although in reality it looks little different from dozens of other residential streets across the city. This sign is facing the wrong way.

Cyclists following the Glasgow to Paisley cycle route are to dismount and cross the road to the next 'Cyclists Dismount' sign, follow the footway around the corner to the pedestrian crossings at the motorway junction, cross over to the park ... [more]

The sign should really mention that motorway regulations begin immediately on the road with the motorway numbers all in brackets. This is a sliproad directly onto the eastbound M8 motorway, see #170597.

Part of Kenmure Street has been converted to cycles only, but incorrectly signed on approach as a 'No Through Road'.

The footbridge connecting the two parts of Beech Avenue across the M8 motorway, and part of the original Glasgow to Paisley cycle route. The footbridge ramps have a single step at each side of the bridge.

The footbridge connecting the two parts of Beech Avenue across the M8 motorway, and part of the original Glasgow to Paisley cycle route. The footbridge ramps have a single step at each side of the bridge.

Nonsense bollards.

'No Through Road' on approach to a Fire Path with a gap for cycling.

Barfillan Drive is no longer a No Through Road for cycling, but the sign has not been updated. See #168302.

Kinnell Avenue is either a No Through Road, or a cycle route to somewhere. If it was both, there would be an "except cycles" plate under the 'No Through Road' sign. But see #168043.

"Drivers remember - You are in a Restricted parking ZONE - Park only in marked bays" I'm not sure they are getting the message.

Cycle symbols have appeared at the entrance to the pedestrian precinct in Cambridge Street, apparently in contradiction to the 'No Vehicles' signs. Sauchiehall Street is a Core Path (which permits cycling), but Cambridge Street is not.

A one-way sign used on Argyle Street where there is a contraflow cycle lane. The vehicles parked in the layby ahead will have been driven in the bus lane.

The new one-way system in Hyndland now makes it difficult for cyclists to use the quiet streets to avoid the main roads. No exemptions have been made to permit two-way cycling.

The 'No Entry' ahead on Woodside Crescent could have 'except cycles' added to permit cycle access to the Charing Cross footbridge. Plenty of space.

Please dismount for the freshly laid 10 metres of straight tarmac that has recently been laid. What is this pointlessness? @GoBikeGlasgow https://t.co/q8wMpCpnXE

The signs say mandatory right turn, but the cycleway on Sauchiehall Street is two-way, so cycles should be exempted. The signs should also be 'mandatory right turn ahead' to diagram 609, due to their position in relation to the junction.

The counter at the Anderston Bridge appears to have been abandoned. See update at #168811.

The 'No Through Road' sign should have been fitted with an 'except cycles' plate when the Hopehill Road closure was opened up to cycling (in background and at #108226).

'No Through Road' signs that need 'except cycles' plates, since the other end of the road is open to cycle access (see #113020).

'Cyclists Dismount' at the footbridge across the motorway connecting Queenslie Industrial Estate and the Fort shopping centre.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign, unusually in mixed upper and lower case, at the entrance to Robroyston station car park, suggesting the footway from #112818 is indeed shared-use. For those not on the footway, a mandatory tour of the car park ... [more]

A cover on one of the traffic signals at the Robroyston motorway junction sliproad, even though the toucan crossing is working and uncovered.

A 'cycles only' sign halfway along Cardonald Drive. Not complied with or enforced.

I was surprised to see this sign at the newly rebuilt Partick Bus Station. The pedestrian crossing around the corner has been removed. Non-bus traffic has to use this lane past Partick Bus Station, but a left turn is required to get to t ... [more]

If motorway regulations apply up to the sign, shouldn't there be a fence between the motorway and the path?

The contraflow cycle lane on Blythswood Street is still incorrectly signed.

A nonsense map (as far as cycle routes are concerned) in Glasgow's Queen Street railway station. What's so good about West Regent Lane for cycling?

Temporary signage for a long-term access restriction during Sighthill redevelopment.

Just a small sign away from the main line of sight to warn of the cycle track crossing the access road to the Bunhouse Car Park, and no indication of priority.

Still no sign as to whether this widened footway is shared use or not, now that the one-way carriageway is unusable for cycling in the other direction. However, there is this parking sign where no parking is allowed.

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 when you are jealous of the railings the school have and want some to help protect your bike lane. https://t.co/BmLaHleRD1

Again as NCN7 crosses the M8 the simplest answer to potential conflict is to force cyclists to walk. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/zLBKWT1I27

And too often, when NCN7 threatens to interfere with motor traffic, it's "cyclists dismount". #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/ZAzVGKl6vd

[via email] Finnieston St - more shared space confusion with Toucans but no signage #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/Xn9Ieei9Ht

[via email] A redundant sign at entrance to the old helipad #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/qqkEsXWNau

The Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route goes straight down this road, but it is signed as a No Through Road.

These steps may not look like a cycle route, but the route through Yorkhill Park is listed on the council's GIS system as a cycle route!

Contradicting signs on Nairn Street. Is this street one-way, or is contraflow cycling permitted?

Despite the footway of the A89 not allowing cycling, and despite this crossing leading to nothing but a bus stop that does not have any bus services carrying bikes, a toucan crossing has been installed across Coatbridge Road. Does this come ... [more]

Map in Central Station, with cycle routes, but without indications of one-way streets. Gordon St/Hope St/Argyle St/Robertson St to the riverside isn't possible! Also doesn't have cycle routes like Waterloo St or Howard St, but does have ... [more]

A Cyclists Dismount sign that really shouldn't be needed for anyone who has successfully cycled down the previous flight of steps (see #86773).

A random "Cyclists Dismount" sign on car park access road, approaching NCN 7 & 75 on Pacific Drive.

Banned right turn, with no exemption for cycling. This turn is part of a Core Path, C93A.

A left turn ban sign that does not exempt cycles, even though cycles are not banned from the road around the corner.

Do I need to get authorisation to cycle past here, or do I have it already?

@GlasgowCC response to poorly maintained #clydetunnel surface and accidents: put up 5mph speed limit!! http://t.co/pgcQoNxOxD

After objections, the Fastlink busway over the Clyde Arc bridge (but not the other sections) will permit buses and cycles. The signage has not been altered to reflect this.

Buchanan Street pedestrian precinct is a Core Path, and according to various people at the council, cycling is allowed in both directions because of its Core Path status, but still the signs say 'No Vehicles'.

End of path approaching Balmore Road on Safer Route To School, with Cyclists Dismount sign

A glass-strewn path in Cowlairs Park, and all the council is worried about is lorries!

"Have a safe journey" sign obstructing shared-use footway on Maryhill Road (see also #33353)

Bike contraflow allowing bikes to go down the 'false one way' of McPhater St. But there's no sign indicating bikes can use it
