The pop-up two-way cycle lane on Royston Road. approaching the Broomfield Road junction. The cycle signals are on green during both general traffic phases, so any turns from the cycleway are not protected.

The pop-up two-way cycle lane on Royston Road approaching the Broomfield Road junction. Note that the cycle traffic signals are green at the same time as traffic is exiting Broomfield Road. The cycle lights were green during both general tr ... [more]

The pop-up cycle lane resumes, but only once the road happens to get wider. I bumped the kerb to allow the couple walking towards me to avoid walking single file. A decent permanent installation would not look like this.

The pop-up two-way cycleway, which only just began back at the Provanmill Road junction, ends, and gestures for cyclists to go onto the footway at the motorway bridge.

More debris collecting around the bus stop boarder, but correct cycleway tactiles, on Royston Road.

Start of the pop-up two-way cycle lane on Royston Road.

Car parking still taking place in the Provanmill Road cycle lane, despite the armadillos. Double yellow lines have not been provided, making it difficult for the council's enforcement officers to do anything.

The build up of mud around the bus boarder after flooding, such as seen in #169649.

Debris lying in the Provanmill Road cycle lane.

The end of the two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road. It just ends.

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road, at a bus stop boarder. Again, mud has accumulated at the bottom of the ramp, due to water running down the hill.

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road. Each build-out across the cycle lane on the hill has attracted accumulations of mud and other debris. Unlike the bus boarders, there was no indication of priority for pedestrians crossing the cycle ... [more]

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road. The previous with-flow lanes have been removed, the centre line repositioned, and one side of the road reallocated for the protected cycle lane.

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road, with a bus stop boarder. Again, the ramps are sharp and slowing down is good advice. The tactiles are of the correct type.

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road. The red areas across the road are the remains of the old with-flow cycle lanes.

Another view of the mixed up bus stop/parking layby/cycle lane in Hawthorn Street, also seen in #170211.

Car parking at Lancefield Quay.

A rather poor combination of cycle lane, bus stop and parking layby on Hawthorn Street. See also #171175.

Installation work on a protected cycle lane in Royston Road. Alterations appear to have been made.

The protected cycle lane in Royston Road appears to direct cyclists into the kerb without warning. Further along it became apparent that installation work was still on-going.

A protected cycle lane has appeared on Royston Road, but further along it became apparent that work had not been completed.

A filter lane removed and replaced by a protected cycle lane, on Provanmill Road at Royston Road.

A drainage problem at a bus boarder in the now protected Provanmill Road cycle lane, seen during a shower. An aftermath of such flooding is seen in #171650.

Although armadillos have been provided on one side of this section of Provanmill Road, this side has been left much as before, with the cycle lane outside of the parking layby and now with a narrow buffer zone.

The end of the protected section of cycle lane on Cumbernauld Road, where the Cumbernauld to Glasgow cycle route turns right onto Provanmill Road. The sign is of a non-standard pattern. The carriageway goes from one to three lanes for mo ... [more]

The Cumbernauld Road cycle lane, now protected with armadillos.

The start of the protected section of cycle lane on Cumbernauld Road. However, the motorists have decided to park in the bus layby instead.

The protected cycle lane scheme took no account of the bus terminus, so buses wait time in the cycle lane before turning at the roundabout to pick up their next service.

The 'End of Route' sign is still up, even though the Wallacewell Road cycle lanes were extended to the end of the road some time ago. The cycle lanes recommence right after the roundabout.

Parking problems outside the shops.

Unlike other armadillo-protected cycle lanes around the city, there are no double yellow lines on Wallacewell Road, and fly parking is still a problem, particularly at gaps in the armadillo provision.

A strange gap in the lining and armadillo provision on Wallacewell Road.

The cycle lanes on Wallacewell Road are now equipped with armadillos right along the length of the road. The traffic islands appear to be marked up for adjustments to make the cycle lane wider past the islands.

The pop-up cycle lane on Braidcraft Road ends just short of the roundabout at Corkerhill Road. NCN7 and NCN75 join from the left after the roundabout but no connection has been made.

A pop-up cycle lane has been provided on Braidcraft Road, although the sign says it is a bus lane.

The Brockburn Road pop-up cycle lane. The ramps at the start of the bus boarders cause quite a jolt and could have been made a bit smoother. Again, Guidance Path tactile paving has been used. Contrary to the fuss being made in the press ... [more]

The build-outs at the north end of the Corkerhill Road cycle lanes have now been rebuilt with dropped kerbs at each end, allowing access to the cycle lanes without pulling out into the outside lane.

The new layout in Cambridge Street. A two-way cycle track has been provided between the underpass from Dundasvale Road to the Renfrew Street junction. The cycle track is continous and marked well across the Hill Street junction.

The "protection" on this protected cycle lane is pretty minimal. Compare with #117893. Still some people using it in the opposite direction though, showing there's demand for a protected two-way facility.

There's not much left of the protected cycle lane on Broomielaw, under Central Station bridge.

Pop-up cycle lane on Hawthorn Street. At each of the signal-controlled junctions, the inside lane reverts to motoring use.

Pop-up cycle lane on Hawthorn Street. Hatching has been removed from the centre of the road to make room for the cycle lanes.

Pop-up cycle lane on Hawthorn Street. This bus stop appears to have been forgotten for the bus boarder treatment. Hatching has been removed from the centre of the road to make room for the cycle lanes, which much improve safety for as lo ... [more]

Light segregation installed on the Colleges Route cycle lanes in Clarence Drive. Again, a break in the armadillos for the pedestrian crossing, and a car illegally parked just before they resume.

Light segregation installed on the Colleges Route cycle lanes in Clarence Drive. The armadillos break for the pedestrian crossing. The first time I've seen the lane this clear in ages.

Light segregation installed on the Colleges Route cycle lanes in Clarence Drive. A big improvement on #112288. Ahead are two parking bays, the first is located outside of the cycle lane, the second is kerbside and the cycle lane goes around ... [more]

Look at this guy just enjoying the new cycle lane installed on Bilsland Drive in Glasgow. Who cares about cyclist safety? Not this guy! What a tw*t!! 🤬🤬🚴🏻‍♀️ https://t.co/RJQ3Ud3b9S

One for you @UrbanistTOC 😠 t.co/7ge2Ygk40g [Car parking in the cycle lane in Corkerhill Road]

The end of the pop-up cycle lane in Bilsland Drive. Traffic immediately takes to the inside of the road, to form two lanes of traffic approaching the Balmore Road junction. The guy on the bike didn't get through the next phase on the traffi ... [more]

The pop-up cycle lane in Bilsland Drive at a bus stop. The drainage would need to be sorted if this was made permanent.

The pop-up cycle lane in Bilsland Drive at a pedestrian crossing. Maybe not ideal, but something that can be sorted later, should the facility become permanent.

No eastbound pop-up cycle lane on this part of Bilsland Drive, and a van parked in the westbound lane, despite the armadillos.

The start of the pop-up cycle lane in Bilsland Drive.

Thank you @GlasgowCC ! https://t.co/N49JEwGMQ3 [Rectifies problem in #117842]
