The Titan Crane in Clydebank, and access to the new riverside path to the right.

A dropped kerb is still required at both ends of the path connecting the Clydebank Business Park and Singer Road.

The underpass in #170471 does see some usage for getting between NCN7 and the Scotstoun Conservation Area, since the route gives safe access to Earlbank Avenue.

Again I forgot to approach this gate on the footway, since there is no dropped kerb to assist with getting around it from the carriageway.

A raised crossing at this side access point, but not quite a continuous footway/cycleway.

The path connecting Cogan Street and Shawbridge Street has been laid out for pedestrian use only, but provides a route to and from the retail park that avoids Nether Auldhouse Road, so would be useful for cycling too. Although there is a ... [more]

A cycle link between Milngavie Road and Macfarlane Road. Each bollard displays a different sign.

[Image taken 29.10.18] The Marygate end of the original Scarborough Bridge, York. The steps were steep, the angles tight, the sightlines non-existent. See also: #169479 and links.

[Image taken 29.10.18] Marygate car park side access to the original Scarborough Bridge, York. The wheeling ramp was so steep and close to the wall it was sometimes easier not to use it. See also: #169479 and links

[Image taken 29.10.18] Access to the original Scarborough Bridge, York, was via steps from the riverside. There were ramps for cycles. They were not easy to use. This adult is partly pushing, partly carrying the child’s cycle up the ramp ... [more]

[Image taken 29.10.18] Access to the original Scarborough Bridge, York, was via steps with a wheeling ramp (right in image) from the riverside. This is the rail station side. See also parent and child pushing bike up the ramp: #169481, brid ... [more]

It would be useful for east-west journeys to have a proper connection between Hawthorn Street and Campsie Street (which leads to Wallacewell Road). But at present, the most direct connection is a gravel path between the footways of Atlas Ro ... [more]

Although the main towpath has been resurfaced, nothing has been done about the poor connection from the towpath to the path to Vaila Street. In addition to local access, this is important for making connections between the canal and Summers ... [more]

[Image taken 17.4.21] Rougier Street junction with Tanner Row, York. Once in, you have to get out again. (See: #165819 and #165820.) In the interim, what had been empty spaces could have filled up. And the shape or dimensions of the new or ... [more]

wheeled in - there is an insufficient turning circle to bring the rear wheel in. The cycle will have to be lifted or dragged. Even if possible, for some people - including this resident - such manoeuvring is painful and can have consequence ... [more]

[Image taken 17.4.21] Rougier Street junction with Tanner Row, York. Note the cycle is nearly jackknifing and that the person is struggling to keep it upright. Had she had more weight onboard - shopping, child seat, a child, the cycle might ... [more]

[Image taken 18.4.21] Hurricane Way, Clifton Moor, York. The width of this shared use path is woefully inadequate: 135cm at its widest, 85cm at its narrowest. It is also unattractive looking - it's not obvious what protection it offers for ... [more]

Gated path between Allander Street and Tannock Street. The path surface is whindust, with a liberal coating of glass.

Lack of proper access between Blackburn Street and Paisley Road West. A line of poorly laid paving slabs links the path outside the houses to the footway on Paisley Road West. A proper connected network would be aided by a better path here.

[Image taken 21.3.21] At Tanner Row, near junction with Rougier Street, York, the hire scooter bays block access to the information totem. For all related issues and images see: #164846

Van parking obstructing the dropped kerb for the path connecting Plean Street to the NCN7 cycle path. The bollard is largely superfluous, given the width of the opening.

[Image taken 21.3.21] Tanner Row direction of Station Rise, York. The proposed diversion during the replacement of the floodgates (see: #165865) under Lendal Bridge includes the right turn from Tanner Row through this cluttered area. It's ... [more]

Access to the path to the Temple Walkway hindered by a kerb at the foot of a ramp.

[Image taken 3.3.21] At Tanner Row, near junction with Rougier Street, York, there are parked vehicles. This reduces the width of the carriageway and means drivers use the advisory contraflow cycle lane often even when there is a person on ... [more]

Access to new development

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

Mock-up of a idea to improve access to the footway cycle parking. Motor vehicles often park right up or overhang the buildout and this creates problems of access to our front door as these other photos show: #6501 and #106944. The ram ... [more]

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]

A kerb to bump on the way from the Forth & Clyde Canal path access to the toucan crossing across Maryhill Road and path up towards Duncruin Street.

The Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane at the turn-off for the canal path. Since the cycle lane stops at Lincoln Avenue, this is where many will leave it for the longer route to town along the canal path. The sign is obscured by tree bran ... [more]

The ramp at Glendinning Road is still steep and poorly surfaced. There's plenty of room here for a decent ramp to be built.

Airedale Greenway signs on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal in Bingley, but watch out for that branch!

An awkward barrier at the foot of the ramp up to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, and no dropped kerb. The only way to the Clydebank Business Park that could possibly be just a quarter of a mile is to head in the opposite direction from ... [more]

Signs visible through the trees for various destinations not mentioned at the top of the ramp. Anyone getting this far probably already knows where they are going. Plus an awkward barrier to get around at the bottom of the steep and narrow ... [more]

The access ramp from the Forth & Clyde Canal to the Golden Jubilee National Hospital, but nothing on the signpost to say so.

Once over the flood defences, the path alongside the stream is of poor quality, and liable to flooding.

The path to the riverside is accessed via these steps over the flood defences.

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

Negotiating the path down from Cumbernauld Road to join the Strathkelvin Railway Path. Still as narrow and awkward as ever.

An access ramp and a barrier (with a BMX style bypass) on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath.

Anonymous off-ramp from the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath to the Carmuirs Park football ground car park.

A path signed as a cycle access to NCN756, but could do with being a little bit wider. The road at the top, Logie Park, is one way, but there is no sign to tell cyclists this.

The access to NCN756 is vulnerable to blockage by van parking at Glamis Drive.

The cycle route from Blantyre leaves Wilson Place to join NCN756, but no mention of NCN756 on the sign. A dropped kerb at the end of the path would be of assistance to anyone cycling to or from Wilson Place itself.

A path connecting the Stewartfield Way shared footway to a woodland path from where Markethill Road can be accessed.

A cycle link between Lindsayfield Road and the East Kilbride to Strathaven cycle route on Jackton Road.

The Forth & Clyde Canal towpath is now in a reasonable shape, but the path to Beardmore Street only gets worse as it goes on!

A connection between Netherton Road and the Forth & Clyde Canal, with damaged sign, mud, and a chicane barrier.

Timperley Brooks Drive . The horse stile remains unused. Wouldn't it be better to make the bollard spacing wide enough for the biggest horse but narrow enough to prevent motor car access . Horse riders are using the space between the bolla ... [more]

When vehicles park outside our front door it makes it much harder to get the bikes in and out of our hallway.

Access to TPT northbound from Station Road at Brimington Wharf

Signpost says access for walkers and cyclists. #DSCF3232

A barrier on the track up to the Union Canal.

The connection to NCN7 at Sandholm Terrace is formed with horrible concrete blocks with gaps in between.

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.

On the left a new ramp up to a car park (see #101153), and on the right the path connecting to the Union Canal.

A barrier guarding the steep access ramp down to the Union Canal towpath (see #101129) but rather awkward to get even a standard bike through.

A barrier hindering access to the National Cycle Network, near the Kelvin Aqueduct.

A route sign not pointing the correct way to the Forth & Clyde Canal. And if that's a cycle parking stand, it may be better positioned in front of the shops, not at the rear. On the plus side, a dropped kerb has been installed since #332 ... [more]

The access to the canal is only from the footway in front of the shops and no account has been taken of the desire line to go straight to and from the carriageway.

No actual kerb separating the carriageway and path to the canal, making for a smoother transition.

Is Bowling over the bridge? No.

A sign for the Forth & Clyde Canal pointing the wrong way, and 'No Through Road' signs on the road that leads there, without 'except cycles' plates.
