@ERsafecycling @Visit_Whitelee @EastRenCouncil @EastRenPolice @polscotrpu This was it again today. Is anything going to be done about this before someone is killed? https://t.co/EHZ7FcgRfs

A short length of painted cycle lane appears next to the cycle lane sign. The previous cycle lane sign didn't have any cycle lane.

The cycle lanes have pretty much vanished from Robroyston Gate.

The cycle lanes painted when the business park was first built have all but disappeared from the road. Not that they made much sense.

A pedestrian crossing and roundabout at the top of Corporation Street.

End of the long-term roadworks (see #112483), a cycle lane up Corporation Street, and more redevelopment work imminent.

The roadworks totally blocking the cycle lanes, presumably what the sign in #112484 referred to.

Temporary roadworks signage hinting at what's to come - the effective end of the cycle lanes through the roadworks zone. The dropped kerb allows cycle access to and from the riverside path, although there is a build-up of mud evident in ... [more]

An overrun area for U-turning vehicles on new Derek Dooley Way gyratory layout, but judging from the tyre marks on the footway, even this is insufficient.

Cycle markings through the junction onto Derek Dooley Way, where almost all traffic, in both lanes, turns right.

'Narrow Lanes Ahead - Give cyclists room'. Having looked at Streetview, I think the direction sign for 'city centre' refers to using the toucan crossings across Derek Dooley Way to get to Johnson Street. But if I was arriving here for th ... [more]

Long-term roadworks indicated by a sign fixed to a lighting column, and not a temporary sign dumped in the cycle lane!

Apparently this is a recommended route for cyclists!

Painted cycle lane on Wicker, and off-side bus lane leading to a bus gate at the Derek Dooley Way junction.

Cycle lanes on Shalesmoor, and damage to the footway consistent with pavement parking.

A van parked partly on the footway and totally blocking a cycle lane on Shalesmoor.

Cycle facilities on Shalesmoor.

Footway cycling on Langlands Road where the painted cycle lanes are blocked by parked cars.

Car parking in the Langlands Road painted cycle lanes, and an old 'No Cycling' sign at this end of the path to Mallaig Road.

Unprotected painted cycle lanes on Clarence Drive, with parking on one side of the road.

I wonder if the @PoliceScotland “safety camera” van beside their offices at Shawfield today can see the road for all those cars parked on double yellow lines & across a cycle lane? And whose cars might they be..? Let me guess. https://t ... [more]

Pavement hopping cycle infrastructure coming into Bingley town centre.

The cycle lane that started in #110656 comes to an end, and the route to Wakefield Road (to the right) goes onto the footway to cross with the pedestrians... #110660

A road with 4 then 5 driving lanes and a painted cycle lane, with an overhead gantry sign. Must be suitable for cycling... #110658

A discontinuous cycle lane on Lower Kirkgate.

Cycle Superhighway sign on Lower Kirkgate.

Cycle lanes on Victoria Viaduct. They end before the viaduct itself.

@helenpidd @GoBikeGlasgow Totally pointless cycle lane. Same cars there. Every. Single. Day. There is a car park behind the building too. This requires you to move out into gas traffic who are trying to turn left in a few metres. Near White ... [more]

The cycle lane up West Thomson Street ends in a car park at the Clydebank Health Centre.

The cycle lane up West Thomson Street.

The start of the West Thomson Street cycle lane, opposite Clydebank High School.

Commercial van parking in the painted cycle lane on Port Dundas Road.

The end of the widened footway and transition onto an on-road painted cycle lane along Alderman Road.

A "Cycle Quietway" has been signed through Knightswood, crossing Alderman Road here at Commore Drive. Again the buffer strip between the car parking bay and the cycle lane does not allow sufficient space for a car to be parked between th ... [more]

The road markings on part of Alderman Road have been renewed, including a buffer strip between the parking bays and the cycle lane, but there's really no point in painting it less than the width of a car away from the kerb.

Absolutely perfect timing. @GoBikeGlasgow @UofGsustain @PeopleByresRoad #paintIsNotProtection https://t.co/LENi1rbIkA

@morebikesplease @PeopleByresRoad @UofGsustain Here was two weeks ago. It's almost like there's a pattern...! Just shows the lack of consideration given to cycle infra that paint is even considered an option here. Anyone who uses the road r ... [more]

Paint is not protection @PeopleByresRoad @UofGsustain https://t.co/BF102sqsik

Chester Avenue, Slateford, Edinburgh. Where we built an out of town shopping centre in the middle of a residential area. Sunday, 1pm. https://t.co/XspjiI2zjF

Not all loading is essential*. Clerkenwell Rd needs kerb-protected bike tracks. Paint doesn’t work. *(London officially has the tastiest tap water in the world). https://t.co/xChTttRZEA

Good Bye Cycle Lane, Hello School Run Every day during term time people bring cars to roads near their child's school and take it for granted that their noble cause gives them priority over cycle lanes, double yellow lines, pavements an ... [more]

The cycle lane marking at the end of Callendar Boulevard encourages cycling on the wrong side of the road, just like #101199 at the other end of the road.

The end of Callendar Boulevard and the start of the path to Old Redding Road.

The road surface at the end of Callendar Boulevard is even worse than this photograph! There is a painted cycle lane on the left side of the carriageway, but not the right.

A shared-use path starts on the left, to avoid the junction ahead, although NCN76 appears not to use it and instead turns at the junction, then turns again onto the next section of the same path. The dropped kerb is also far from flush, ... [more]

A painted cycle lane has been provided through the traffic calming pinch-point, but only in one direction.

The painted cycle lanes on Bo'ness Road end here, and a jug-handle is provided to cross to the parallel access road to the right.

The painted cycle lanes continue from here into Grangemouth town centre.

Hi @EastRenCouncil , could you arrange to have this traffic information sign repositioned so that it doesn't block the cycle lane for the next 6 weeks? Its current position is creating conflict between people cycling and buses/cars etc. T ... [more]

Entitled driver's reaction to #carfreeday https://t.co/E6vXC6RfX1

Precisely no-one ends their journey here, so why does the cycle lane end here?

Since my last visit painted cycle lanes have appeared on Hamilton Road west of Daldowie Road. Perhaps some of the extensive hatching could have been sacrificed in order to provide some segregation.

Northwall Road in @noordinarypark. This is what happens when you build a neighbourhood with no public car parking, but don’t provide the infrastructure to allow people to use public transport, walk, or cycle there. #olympiclegacy https:// ... [more]

End of the cycle lane and part-time bus lane on Camelon Road, and start of Falkirk town centre's one-way system.

In theory the bus lane should help separate the cycle lane from the traffic in the general traffic lane, but almost all of the car drivers were choosing to drive in the bus lane outside of operational hours.

The start of a narrow painted cycle lane on Camelon Road, just after a collapsing gully at a bus stop.

The cycle lane has been painted the wrong way around. Such incompetence!

A big sign for the roundabout at the end of Callendar Boulevard, but motorway regulations do not apply immediately on the road to the right. This sign is in effect a 'No Turn Right' sign for non-motorway traffic, and completely bogus.

The car parking in the Callendar Boulevard painted cycle lanes resumes, but with no waiting restrictions to force drivers to take their cars to the car parks, it appears the council approves.

A break in the car parking to see the narrow painted cycle lanes.

The exit from Callendar Park onto Callendar Boulevard, where cars are regularly left blocking the painted cycle lanes.

The narrow cycle lane on Kelso Street bridge with footway car parking. No waiting restrictions so the assumption must be that the council approves of this.

A cycle lane designed for car parking. Let's not pretend this is designed for cycling.

Cycle lanes on Greenfaulds Road, and the typical junction layout in many parts of Cumbernauld.

Ayr Road at Whitecraigs.

This is what a painted bike lane means @PeopleByresRoad @GlasgowCC @glendalegaelic @walkcyclevote St Andrew's Drive https://t.co/xSJ0xYx8OH

I don't suppose it matters that this van is parked in the Meiklewood Road cycle lane, since the cycle route turns right at the end of the road.

Junction potholes in the Meiklewood Road cycle lane.

The parking layby is again too narrow for ordinary cars to be reliably parked within, so eroding the buffer zone that is meant to contain door openings.

Cycle lane or not?

The painted cycle lane on Meiklewood Road goes around the bend, then vanishes for a bit.

The cycle lane on Meiklewood Road starts to move out from the kerb.

The cycle route is also a recommended route for lorry driving!

1/2 Yet another #designfail for #Edinburgh #cyclinginfrastructure. If this is what extra funding gets us we're screwed. https://t.co/8XNeziZQjN

What is the point of advisory cycle lanes? Cumbernauld Rd today, both sides covered in parked cars @AnnaLangside @GlasgowCC @policescotland https://t.co/ze1547or7Z

Cycle lane + d/yellow lines at the foot of busy Gilmore Hill. Ideal parking place #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/xd0YZo2dOx

Haw @EastRenCouncil your bike lanes in the door zone are bad enough but this really is taking the piss! Move the sign please. https://t.co/6BHe6XluMf

A pathetic worn-out narrow painted door-zone cycle lane in Kilmarnock Road from the council that won the "Achievements in Cycling" award at the 2017 Scottish Transport Awards.

King Street's cycle lane doubles as an overtaking lane when there are parked cars about. A contraflow has been provided on the one-way section by permitting cycling on the existing footway.

Users of this cycle lane need to look out for oncoming motorists overtaking parked cars.

I'm not sure what the purpose of this cycle lane is.

Painted markings direct cyclists from Rutherglen onto the road to the right, but NCN756 actually goes left towards the Smart Bridge. Some dropped kerbs nearer or behind the camera would be useful here.

Typical nonsense markings in South Lanarkshire, where it appears cyclists are meant to cross from the footway of Glasgow Road (off to the right) onto the footway in the foreground, then immediately leave it for the on-road cycle lane. No he ... [more]

The view along Calder Street.

I'm not sure how the cycle lane helps anything. The parked cars are more of a hazard than a low traffic sideroad with good sightlines.

End of shared footway, start of on-road painted cycle lanes to Cambuslang along the A724.

End of shared footway, start of on-road painted cycle lanes to Cambuslang along the A724.

Poor alignment of cycle lane for those going straight on, and for the eagle-eyed, route (74) turns left.

Spot the route sign telling cyclists on route (74) to cross the road.

A recommended route for cyclists, along the A724.

Primary school children are expected to cycle along the A724 with only painted cycle lanes for "protection" on route (74).

After the bus stop, the cycle lane resumes on the road.

The Territorial Army Centre sign has been moved from the right to the left side of the shared-use footway. The cycle lane on the road leaves the adjacent lane too narrow for the traffic using it. No mention that the 74 route turns left at t ... [more]

The cycle lane ends and cyclists directed onto the footway. This sign has (74) rather than the 74 used on other signs nearby. Note also the crayon bike symbol on the carriageway.

I don't know what the designer thought would happen here.

No real attempt to allow bike access to housing estate via path from main road, and quite narrow cycle lanes for a 40mph road.

Onto the footway at the roundabout at Drumsagard. South Lanarkshire Council has signed the A724 as NCN74, even though the Sustrans NCN74 goes to Uddingston to join NCN75.

Nothing special at these bus stops.

Back onto the footway for the roundabout.

Each of the entrances to Halfway Park has barriers across it and no dropped kerb, making it difficult for people on bikes to visit. Also, another sign for local primary schools, and car parking in the cycle lane.
