@magnatom @GlasgowCC @AnnaLangside @GoBikeGlasgow We took this photo & plan to write to council. Why not 'please take care through roadworks and show respect to workers & fellow road users'? Feel free to use photo if you like. https://t.co/ ... [more]

Security advice on the new cycle stands at the bridge to the Murano Street student halls complex.

New cycle stands at the bridge to the Murano Street student halls complex, with CCTV coverage, and a forgiving kerb!

A new Nextbike hire station on Garscube Road.

The new administration at Glasgow City Council wasted no time in "standardising" (downgrading) all 24-hour bus lanes in Glasgow to operate only 7am-7pm, but this peak-hour bus lane remains peak-hours only. Enforcement is unchanged.

Some dropped kerbs have been installed on Milngavie Road and at the turn from Macfarlane Road into Kessington Drive, restoring the connection possible before the pedestrian crossing was moved. See also #85484. However, southbound it is a ... [more]

Some dropped kerbs have been installed at the turn from Macfarlane Road into Kessington Drive and on Milngavie Road, restoring the connection possible before the pedestrian crossing was moved. See also #85485.

The start of the new link from Macfarlane Road into Killermont Road, as part of the interim Bears Way route. There way previously a bus layby here, even though this is not a bus terminus or somewhere a bus would be waiting for more than the ... [more]

A short section of shared-use footway forms the new connection from Macfarlane Road to Killermont Road, as part of the interim Bears Way route. See also #85480.

The new cycle connection between Killermont Road and Macfarlane Road, on the interim Bears Way route. See also #85481.

The end of the Bears Way interim route through Cluny Park, at a new toucan crossing across the A81 Maryhill Road dual carriageway. A shared-use footway connects to the entrance to Garscube Estate just off to the left, and continues as far a ... [more]

The shared-use footway alongside Maryhill Road ends at this new toucan crossing, from where the interim Bears Way route continues through Cluny Park. A "Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway" sign has been provided just beyond the crossing, so footwa ... [more]

Shared-use footway on Maryhill Road at the entrance to the Garscube Estate. A gap has been left in the central reservation for those turning right off of the main A81 dual carriageway. See also #85470.

Previously locked central gate removed, removing need for cyclists to open sprung side gate. Planter boxes obstruct central gate enough to prevent motor vehicle access, but not enough to stop footway parking alongside. See also #85471.

Messy kerbs at Garscube Mill on what is now a shared-use footway alongside Maryhill Road.

New cycle parking stands at shops in Maryhill Road, but new direction sign attempting to direct cyclists down a flight of steps!

Shared-use footway along Maryhill Road dual carriageway, with sign for Milngavie. Until East Dunbartonshire Council finishes its Bears Way cycle route, you'll have to find your own way from the City Boundary.

Route sign hidden by tree branches until the last moment, on narrow shared-use footway.

After digging around in the leaves, this member of the study tour found a dropped kerb that may have been intended to allow cyclists to leave the carriageway and use the traffic island crossing to get across the road. But there is no signag ... [more]

The end of phase 1 of the Bears Way cycle route, and having had priority at numerous junctions, this Give Way means cyclists will have to stop for cars turning into Burnmouth Place. The old cycle lane continues for only a few metres beyo ... [more]

The end of phase 1 of the Bears Way cycle route, and priority over turning traffic at junctions is immediately lost with this Give Way. This is also the point where northbound cyclists are meant to cross the road to use the cycle track. ... [more]

A basic bus stop without a shelter or much of an island between the boarding point and the cycle track.

A chicane approaching a bus stop on the Bears Way cycle track.

A gully right in the middle of the Bears Way cycle track at a bend near the Allander Sports Centre access road junction.

The Bears Way cycle track crosses the Allander Sports Centre access road with a (slightly) raised priority crossing.

The cycle track crosses the access road to the Allander Sports Centre by moving away from the Milngavie Road alignment to cross further back from the road junction (see #72183).

A toucan crossing across Milngavie Road and the Bears Way cycle track. No particularly obvious reason why it is a toucan rather than a pedestrian crossing, since the footway on the left is narrow and not suitable for cycling on, and the pat ... [more]

A chicane in the cycle track approaching a bus stop. The shelter for this stop is on the footway rather than the bus stop island. This intending passenger seems happy to wait leaning against a bollard.

Temporary arrangements at what will become the entrance to a new housing estate.

No dedicated space for cycling on this section of busy Milngavie Road has led to this chap riding along the footway.

Traffic on Milngavie Road. The cars on the outside are in a queue for the right turn into Asda.

Priority at golfing range side-road crossing on Bears Way cycleway.

No cycle parking outside shops next to Bears Way cycleway. Maybe there's some round the back in the car park, but some here would be more obvious for anyone who cared to stop.

Chicane for cyclists approaching bus stop on Bears Way cycleway. In foreground, access to/from side-road opposite.

Cycle parking stands provided at Kessington shops.

Fallen leaves hiding broken asphalt and protruding manhole cover.

The shared-use path from the Allander Leisure Centre meets the Bears Way cycle track at the toucan crossing across the A81, and across from the Craigdhu Wedge path.

The path down the side of the fitness club is the inauspicious start of the Craigdhu Wedge path. Access is from the shared-use footway in the foreground and segregated track to the right, or from the toucan crossing just to the left of the ... [more]

The Bears Way cycle track crosses from one side of the A81 to the other on the boundary between Bearsden and Milngavie (both East Dunbartonshire Council). The crossing also provides access between the Craigdhu Wedge path and the path to the ... [more]

The Bears Way cycle track crosses from one side of the A81 to the other, one of the main reasons for not using it cited by people who continue to cycle on the main carriageway. I'm guessing the traffic signal poles are still to be reloca ... [more]

The Bears Way cycle track has priority over vehicles exiting the fitness club. Not so clear about vehicles entering.

The cycletrack gets narrower at the car parking layby, presumably to offer protection from the door-zone. But it just juts out without any transition.

Once you've managed to get onto the track, the Bears Way offers protection from the motor traffic on the A81. But the cycle track switches sides shortly, at the 'golden arches' visible in the distance.

The end of the Bears Way segregated cycleway and back onto the road at the Burnbrae Roundabout. Not so clear how to make this transition southbound.

Road closure in Keystone Avenue, 'No Motor Vehicles' sign and route sign including cycling information, but no dropped kerb for cycling. As if the turn off of the A81 Glasgow Road wasn't awkward enough!

Clearly there used to be a kissing gate here, where the Allander Way meets Glasgow Road. (Sign close-up at #70761.)

Continuous footway over sideroad on Milngavie Road, Bearsden. See also #67974.

More #space4cycling emerging on the A81 in Milngavie, one of Scotland's most car-dependent towns. Yay! http://t.co/myYuLWJmXz

Maryhill Rd @ QMD where they have lovely ASZs for the use of private hire taxis. #glasgowcycleinfraday https://twitter.com/kennymunro/status/563447924039122944

Maryhill Rd, potholes so deep you could lose a child in them #glasgowcycleinfraday https://twitter.com/kennymunro/status/563447503572701185

Still in East Dunbartonshire, where they really care about pedestrians & cyclists. #glasgowcycleinfraday https://twitter.com/kennymunro/status/563447202950184963

@magnatom technically East Dunbartonshire, but cars parked in cycle lanes on both sides #glasgowcycleinfraday http://t.co/yi6c3f7bC9 ... @magnatom note woman in gym clothes getting out of car. There were loads of empty spaces in the gym c ... [more]

@magnatom #glasgowcycleinfraday Maryhill Road shared rink. Shameful that no dedicated cycle lane exists here. http://t.co/5m0PAHkf7F

A car with a bike on the back blocking the cycle lane.

Parking in northbound cycle lane in Milngavie Road. The southbound cycle lane has already finished to make way for official car parking.

New pinch-point on Milngavie Road at Hillfoot station.

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

Shockingly narrow shared-use footway alongside 50mph dual carriageway section of Maryhill Road. No effort has been taken to convert this from a standard footway. There is a better cycle route through the science park, running parallel to th ... [more]
