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

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.

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.

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.

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

Unsurprisingly, people want to go to the crossing. More tyre tracks 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 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?

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

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.

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.

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

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.

[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

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]

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.

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

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

Glass on access between Baltic Street and London Road cycle track.

The path between Ashgill Road and Liddesdale Terrace needs dropped kerbs at each end.

The path between Liddesdale Terrace and Ashgill Road needs dropped kerbs at each end.

The path between Liddesdale Road and Strathmore Road needs dropped kerbs at each end.

The path between Strathmore Road and Liddesdale Road needs dropped kerbs at each end, and possibly the pedestrian desire line towards Balmore Road should be acknowledged.

The Halloween Pend, an old tunnel under the Forth & Clyde Canal. Not much use for cycling, unless you don't mind a bit of scrambling and ankle-deep mud. More information at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcKoypTGPG8

Path from houses at Aultbea Street, and muddy path down from the main road at Castlebay Street.

See video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNIW5viCYK0 This path between Southdeen Avenue and Glenkirk Drive is included in the 300km of claimed cycle routes in the Glasgow City Council Cycle Network (see map at https://glasgowgis.maps ... [more]

Clearly not a purpose-built cycleway. The path heads up a steep slope onto the former railway embankment.

Poor quality path on the Allander Way. There's a step at the water pumping device.

The Allander Way has an underpass beneath the A879 Balmore Road (although not Boclair Road), but the path does not connect up with it, and if you want to join Balmore Road, access is by climbing over the crash barrier!

A lot of this section of the Kelvin Walkway is quite muddy. This wasn't the worst piece.

The Kelvin Walkway path doesn't get any better than this. The sections either side of this are quite muddy.

The improved section of path doesn't even stretch as far as the bridge. The path beyond here is even worse!

Path in poor condition at Rutherglen end.

Another calculated insult to pedestrians from one of the laziest, nastiest councils in Britain http://t.co/jfCIaQUAZw

A very poor section of track linking the closed section of Bantaskin Street with the Kelvin Walkway. The sign says "Kelvin Walkway - Authorised Vehicles Only - 4 m.p.h."

On the left, offside access to the Forth & Clyde Canal at Kelvin Dock. (Access to the towpath can only be gained from here by crossing over one of the lock gates.) On the right, access to the Kelvin Walkway. Poor surface all round.

On the far side of the road crossing it is legal to cycle on this path. On this side it is not. And there are obstructions at the road crossing in the way of anyone using the path anyway.

Poor lumpy asphalt surface on footpath between Balcarres Avenue and Kelvindale Road, which is also quite narrow in places.

Track between Robroyston and Hogganfield. Could be a useful link to/from ASDA.
