Shallow steps on the path from Ashvale Crescent to Cowlairs Road, on its way to run alongside the Springburn Expressway. There is a steeper flight of steps at Ashvale Crescent, so the only way to get to here step-free is from Carleston Stre ... [more]

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign on the path alongside the Springburn Expressway, at a point where all approaches have steps, except for the route to Carleston Street over the bridge.

Refurbished bridge, seen previously in #87513. The area has been tidied up, although graffiti has returned. Unmade paths lead through the woods to Cadder.

Ramp at the MacLellan Street side of footbridge, but there are steps at the Clifford Street side.

It's clear here what the transport priorities are when there are steps at one side of this footbridge.

Once up the steps from Clifford Street, the rest of the motorway footbridge is step-free.

Shallow steps leading to motorway footbridge at Clifford Street that could be replaced by a proper ramp. The same problem as the other access at #152263.

Wider pavement and stop pavement parking. Impossible for people with prams, wheelchairs or mobility issues to get passed cars and they have to walk on the roads

If you know where to look, there are now little asphalt ramps on each of the steps on the Charing Cross footbridge. But they could be widened and highlighted with paint. The dropped kerb is also obstructed by car parking. Combined wit ... [more]

Pavements on Dumbarton Road between Crow Road and Byres Road are not going to be wide enough for social distancing as increasing numbers of people come back to work: take back some of the street!

Eastern pavement of Crow Road very narrow at this point, probably only 1 m wide for about 30 or 40 m, hemmed in by metal fence on the edge of the pavement and hedge on the right of the pavement

Wide road but narrow pavement and busy pavement area near Linn Park gates and the buss stop.

Wider pavements needed - adjacent parking spaces available to reclaim

There is a really wide road opening, parked cars, blind spots but it is on way to canal. Narrow the road to single track to allow lore space for cyclists and walkers.

There is no pavement here at all. This is the main way for residents of Kelvindale to access their amazing local park. Aswell as no pavements there is a really wide road opening to cross aswell. We usually drive to the park (6 minute walk) ... [more]

Widen path so that it is safe for both pedestrians and cyclists

Pavements too narrow for effective distancing, pedestrian barriers should be removed, & narrow central reservation should be turned into a pedestrian refuge with sufficient space for distancing and/or incorporated into a pedestrian crossing

The surface of the path between Prospecthill Circus and Toryglen Road in Rutherglen has still not been improved. This would form a useful alternative to the main Prospecthill Road, including for commuting. But not in this state.

The path continues over to the mountain biking site.

The footbridge at the end of Dolphin Road has fairly steep ramps, but also has quite a bit of upstand on the kerbs on each side.

Anyone wanting to avoid the traffic on Argyle Street by using the route in #113424 is faced with this poor quality back lane to get to Corunna Street. Watch out for glass!

Evidence of a desire line through the park from Kelvinhaugh Street to Corunna Street, avoiding Argyle Street. From Corunna Street there is a de facto quietway to the city centre via the Skypark path.

Steps and half-width ramps on the path between Baird Street and Sighthill.

An old railway track alongside the A752 at Drumpellier Country Park, which would make a better route for the Seven Lochs Trail than the footway of the A752. It just needs a path to be built on the trackbed and across to a road crossing. Vie ... [more]

The path surface has become mud on this short section.

I don't know why the path doesn't continue behind the wall. The cobbles are not everyone's cup of tea.

Entrance to the next section of the Seven Lochs Trail. (Close-up in #112952.)

Path from Claddens Quadrant over to Ashfield Street.

A narrow and occasionally steep path between Bonnyholm Avenue and the Cardonald Quietway.

The fire path from Crookston Road approaching Langlook Road.

Unsurprisingly, people want to go to the crossing. More tyre tracks in Househill Park.

A path junction in Househill Park.

The main path in Househill Park.

A worn path in the grass approaching one of the few formal paths in Househill Park

Tyre tracks ahead in Househill Park.

Tyre tracks (not mine) in the grass in Househill Park. This park could do with a few more formalised paths.

No dropped kerb at the end of the path to Langlands Road (which has a 'No Cycling' sign at the other end #112293).

On the left, the Garscadden Way, leading to the Drumchapel Way, and on the right, the path through to Annan Drive. Both could do with some proper path building works.

The path from Drumchapel to Annan Drive, Bearsden, is a bit on the narrow side.

The junction of Fountainwell Road and St Rollox Drive, seen from the old footpath along the edge of Sighthill Cemetery. The start of the cycleway can be seen, and this is the only access.

Was I imaging in #107165 that this path was being upgraded?

Access from Drumoyne Road industrial estate to the path to Meiklewood Road.

Some steps on the Drumchapel Way, with a by-pass ramp, approaching Kinfauns Drive.

Poor condition asphalt path and damaged marker post on the Drumchapel Way.

The Drumchapel Way continues.

The optimist in me wants to believe that this section of the Drumchapel Way path is currently being upgraded.

The path connecting the Forth & Clyde Canal to Netherton Road next to the David Lloyd centre is in a very poor condition, not just a poor and narrow surface but quite overgrown too.

A very narrow and bumpy path that could be improved to connect Kirklee with Kelvindale Road and the Kelvin Walkway across the river.

This is the route pedestrians and wheelchair users are directed along from Drumchapel station (see #100504), a narrow path with a poor inclined surface. Would two wheelchair users be able to pass easily? The far end is shown at #100508.

The motorway surface would never have been left like this, so why the core path and cycling route?

Fences ✅ Crash barriers ✅ Surface ❌ Unless you like cycling on the A89 dual carriageway, this is one of the few options for getting around Baillieston Interchange and on to Bargeddie.

This core path is now a dead end, blocked by the A8 Swinton Roundabout.

The unmade path from Cardowan meets the made paths around Cardowan Moss.

The path from Cardowan to Cardowan Moss can be a bit wet here in times of less dry weather.

A path connecting to the riverside path in Govan.

The walkway alongside the River Clyde in Govan ends in a dead-end. This is the last junction to access the local road network.

A riverside walkway in Govan, with the Riverside Museum across the other side. In summer a free ferry operates across the river.

A riverside walkway in Govan.

The path to Craighall Street being used for getting about by bike.

Although there are items of cycling paraphernalia back at Carnoustie Street and at Houston Street, this crossing is not a toucan crossing on the path in between the two locations. The space on the central reservation is somewhat restrict ... [more]

Nothing to say whether cycling is allowed here or not, although this is where a chain of toucan crossings lead.

Give way to construction traffic in Richmond Park.

Filtered permeability not so good as #98670 when it comes to bus stop access, only leading to the nearest street, and lacking a dropped kerb on one side of the street!

Good filtered permeability in parts of the new Richmond Gate housing development, but wouldn't it have been better to provide a raised crossing (as at nearby #95369) for this path between the park and the houses?

A new path at the Clay Pit local nature reserve.

New paths at the Clay Pit local nature reserve. The surface is gravel so not so good for cycling, but was frozen solid with frost when I visited.

A new path into the Clay Pit local nature reserve.

Broken asphalt on the route the Kelvingrove Art Gallery boss preferred cyclists to take rather than the more obvious route through the car park.

Desire line from NCN7 path up to main road.

Instead of the direct PRW, council would prefer cyclists use the quieter route following NCN7 #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/jNLcWpRARp

[via email] Flood on path from SECC to Riverside Museum. Created a few months ago by a worker with a digger #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/8UtPQmwTHM

Ncn7 worst designed cycle path entrance on my route. At least nettles have died down a bit now. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/QDIhlbFwMy

NCN7. Always floods here. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/5pnSklD7Hi

NCN7. A mud pit because it's often (presumably illegally?) driven on. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/DXj0zXUQdL

Glasgow City Council has proposed stopping up this path leading to vacant land behind the houses, due to it being deemed "unneccessary". ROADS (SCOTLAND) ACT 1984 THE GLASGOW CITY COUNCIL RAASAY STREET (STOPPING UP) ORDER 2017 ... [more]

Steeply graded woodland path.

A big puddle on Bredisholm Road track.

The people of Pollok have made their own desire lines clear, and they don't match the official paths.

It's hard to believe that this path is only a few weeks old. Unlike the other rebuilt paths linking to and from the Kelvin Walkway, this riverside path was not asphalted, but instead has been given a loose surface. Unsurprisingly, it is ... [more]

Unlike the other rebuilt paths linking to and from the Kelvin Walkway, this riverside path was not asphalted, but instead has been given a loose surface. Unsurprisingly, it is already wrecked after the first heavy rain since it was built. W ... [more]

A path from Hamilton Road through to Greentree Drive.

One of two people on bikes I saw using this section of the Garscadden Way.

The Garscadden Way almost indiscernible approaching the Drumchapel Road crossing. Only the old access barrier gives a clue to it once being a Strathclyde Regional Council cycle route.

The Garscadden Way heading towards its southeastern end.

The Garscadden Way heading towards its southeastern end.

A particularly poor piece of path heading to Annan Drive, including a steep drop.

The Drumchapel Way and Garscadden Way meet and head onwards between the trees. The Drumchapel Way comes along the path from Kinfauns Drive and turns, while the path continues on to Annan Drive. The Garscadden Way comes across the grass from ... [more]

A poor quality path from Kinfauns Drive across to Annan Drive, with a waymarker post for the Drumchapel Way.

Access to the new access path to the Kelvin Walkway in #89472 still needs work done at Bantaskin St. Maybe it isn't finished.

An old canal bridge on Castle Street, but there are steps on the other side so not useful for cycling.

The position of the dropped kerb seems to be without any thought as to where people might want to cross.

The path beneath the road bridges at Baillieston could do with a litter-pick along its whole length.

The path between the A89 and Bargeddie Parish Church.

The narrow path between the A89 and Bargeddie Parish Church gets wider for a bit, but much of the benefit is negated by the vegetation. However, it probably copes fine with the present level of use.

The unsurfaced canal path from Bishopbriggs finally arrives at Lambhill Bridge. Much quicker (and cleaner) to use NCN754 across the other side of the canal, but what if you live in the area around Aultbea Street?

A clear desire line for a ramp to the Clyde Walkway where there is only steps on this side of Dalmarnock Road.

The path network in the former athletes' village includes a few unusual features such as this bridge across the water feature, and this plaque explaining a bit about the village.
