A severe barrier on the path between Duncryne Place, Bishopbriggs and Ashgill Road, Glasgow.

Slow for a sodding gate post? Surely priority signs like those on the adjacent road would be more appropriate.

A barrier over the HArTT cycle path at Carron Road, and a diagonal crossing over to the next section of path.

A barrier at the Cumbernauld Road bridge and crossing on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, but no asphalt for the bypass gap.

The swingbridge at Bonnybridge on the Forth & Clyde Canal.

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

Anti motorcycling barriers on this narrow cycleway above the Great Central railway.

Fussy anti-motorcycling barriers that seem to annoy almost everyone.

Chicane barriers are easily bypassed

Proposed barrier near Ruddington Lane tram stop

Proposed barrier near Compton Acres tram stop

Proposed location of staggered barriers

The way from the entrance to the cycle parking is blocked by a barrier, and the very narrow gap at the side is blocked by cones.

The only barriers I encountered on the Whitehills cycle route, and no signage to say whether the route goes straight ahead to the Queensway underpass or turns right along Strathcona Place towards the Murray Roundabout.

Barriers across the path at Curlew Drive, the Crosshouse Primary School access road.

Barriers across the path at Mallard Crescent, and no dropped kerb.

Barriers at Burnside View raised crossing. Hardly a busy main road!

Barriers at the junction of two paths.

The continuity of Netherton Road (now a path) has been destroyed by the junction at Applegate Drive. Not even a dropped kerb at the end of the path (which has been slewed away from its original alignment).

Barriers on the paths either side of Newlandsmuir Road. Quite why East Kilbride's cycle route 1 doesn't go straight across and along the path ahead right through to Lonsdale Gait (avoiding the Greenhills Road roundabout) I don't know.

The barrier at The Saltings car park.

Another barrier blocking the end of a bridge in The Saltings nature reserve. So I'll give this path a miss too.

A barrier on a footbridge at The Saltings nature reserve. But easily avoided by taking a different route.

A barrier across the path between Donald's Quay and The Saltings. It's always worth checking whether the gate is locked or not. At this point, the path is running along the formation of a former railway line.

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

I'm sure a better entrance to this path could be built at Knightscliffe Avenue. The plot to the left was only recently rebuilt.

A barrier at the entrance to The Saltings local nature reserve from the car park. There is another barrier further along the path, between The Saltings and Donald's Quay.

A rather uninviting entrance to the Thomas Wood Path at Duntocher.

Horrendous A-frame barrier that stops anyone with a tricycle, recumbent, or any form of adapted cycle for people with disabilities. Even more horribly, this is right next to the Woolgrove school, for special needs, thus ensuring that the ... [more]

horrendous A-frame barrier that stops anyone with a tricycle, recumbent, or any form of adapted cycle for people with disabilities

I'm not normally one for ragging on my colleagues but this shiny new car park at Gloucester station is an active travel crime scene. True @bollocksinfra https://t.co/c1octJbVNO

Barriers at Lionthorn Road crossing.

The nearest dropped kerb to the start of the path to Falkirk High station (see #103464) is on a very narrow section of footway, and together with the barriers makes for a needlessly awkward piece of cycling.

A kerb and barriers across the start of the newly rebuilt path to Falkirk High station. There is a dropped kerb but it's off to the left (see #103465).

The road towards Callendar Woods at New Hallglen Road.

An entrance to the Callendar Woods from Kemper Avenue, with a gap to the side of a locked gate.

A toucan crossing across A905 Beancross Road, a signed walking route to the Jupiter Wildlife Centre, and barriers across a path to Chisholm Place/Almond Street. Primrose Avenue (to the left behind the camera) is a key link between Grange ... [more]

Cycle barrier. Rounded shape enables a normal bike to be wheeled through, but it would be difficult with a tandem or trailer.

NCN76 joins the shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road, but has several barriers across it.

The exit from Rannoch Park, a path from Rannoch Road, and their connection to the shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road.

A barrier on the track up to the Union Canal.

Another barrier in Summerford Park.

I'm not sure who is welcome to Summerford Park. I had to turn my handlebars sideways and lift the front wheel to get through this.

A path leading to an uncontrolled crossing of the A9 (see #101519) and the Sunnyside playing fields. Although the HArTT cycle route goes past either end of this path, it uses a signalled crossing of the A9 further to the north.

Such a good route it is too. Would never have realised it ended without the sign. @bollocksinfra https://t.co/wsgsLcTiKR

Unlike the provision for crossing to Abbotsford Business Park, where left and right turns are catered for instead of forced right-angled turns, the path to Hayfield is made difficult to use with a chicane barrier.

The Forth & Clyde Canal towpath at the junction with the ramp up to the A9 bridge, and with the Kelpies in the background.

A metal barrier and a parked Falkirk Council van blocking the shared footway/cycleway at the A9 roundabout.

Barriers across an exit from the Helix park.

Barriers at the entrance to the main part of the Helix park. The other side of the toucan crossing has bollards.

Needless barriers at the Laurieston Road entrance to the Helix park. What are dismounted cyclists to do when there's no footway on the road ahead?

Needless barriers at the Laurieston Road entrance to the Helix park.

The sign invites left turns from the Lionthorn Road shared-use footway onto the path to Slamannan Road, but the barriers makes them rather awkward with a bike.

This appears to be a new path over to the Union Canal access ramp at #101130, but has old school barriers making cycle access difficult.

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 rough transition to the road at Kirk Place, but a barrier to ensure you don't accidentally cycle down the steps.

If you can't read the sign next to the bridge, and don't know which side of this barrier to pass, no worries - it's pointing the wrong way anyway! See also #97669 and #99654.

If you want to go south to Bellshill you must first go north to go around the end of this barrier. And if you're coming south you need to pick a side and hope you've picked the right side when you get to the direction sign in #99653. See al ... [more]

A barrier and kissing gate across the path in the Luggiebank Wood Wildlife Reserve.

A barrier and kissing gate across the path in the Luggiebank Wood Wildlife Reserve.

A path junction in the Greenfaulds area of Cumbernauld.

Car parking at the entrance to the Monkland Canal towpath. One more and access to the kissing gate (beyond car) becomes very tricky.

A couple more barriers across the canal towpath.

A couple of barriers across the canal towpath.

What do local women feel about the changes to this shared path on Hartcliffe way which have been put in today? https://t.co/zkUCOvXfy4

No proper crossing across Shieldhall Road at the roundabout to follow the destinations on the Cardonald Quietway sign. As for the Renfrew and Braehead sign, the shared footway doesn't start until the Hardgate Road junction.

No proper crossing across Shieldhall Road to the path at the far side of the roundabout, to access the destinations on the sign in #98986.

After the smooth new path from the Springburn Expressway footbridge is this mess!

The barriers on the Springburn Expressway footbridge remain in place. Sighthill seen during redevelopment, with some old and new buildings visible, and off to the right, reinstated access from the footbridge to Pinkston Drive.

https://t.co/6CwEM6Rj1Q End of route! The road ahead leads into the town centre. The road running across the photograph is the ringroad around the town centre. The photograph in this link shows this location from the opposite direc ... [more]

The finishing touches remain to be done at the new path into the Clay Pit local nature reserve.

The northern footway of Govan Road is being rebuilt for shared use.

The A-frame on the path to Overtoun House was just wide enough for my handlebars.

A barrier at Clyde St, set back from the path entrance.

barrier to prevent any but able-bodied pedestrians Location: , Wokingham District (England, United Kingdom) This clever contraption stops anyone that isn't completely able-bodied - you can't even carry a bicycle through it

Part of official cycle route to Southern General. Was meant to be widened to allow disabled/child trailers. Wasn't. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/6i8cnNCE6N

More obligatory shots for #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 - the lauded but distinctly average red tube over the expressway. I mean, it's fine but... https://t.co/dToSnqZnSh

A barrier with a gap at the side on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath.

NCN75 closed at the SECC due to the Festival of Motoring of all things.

The barrier across the top end of the steep "pedestrian access route" to Linlithgow station.

A resonable gap between the railings, but wouldn't bollards do the job?

The inevitable result of placing a barrier in the way of the path and not diverting the path directly to the forced crossing point - a worn path across the grass. Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but is that fence panel not meant to be inst ... [more]

So if I can stand in the middle of the road taking photos of the barrier, is the road really so dangerous that it needs the barrier?

A newly installed barrier right over the end of the path at a minor road crossing at Tweedside Park.

Full route signs at a minor access point on NCN1, but why does the sign pointing left refer to (1)?

I don't think this section of the Southern Upland Way is intended for cycling.

Barriers across the cycle path to Silverburn, to stop people going straight out onto the road where drivers can't even avoid hitting the signs. Again, no traffic control to help people cross the road, just a traffic island.

I didn't think it was possible for this crossing to become more farcical, but the roadway has been closed, meaning the cycle route bumps kerbs for no purpose.

Still no progress on getting this barrier removed. See #44115.

The path from Larchfield Drive is obstructed by barriers, then there is an uncontrolled crossing of the Cathkin Relief Road, and steps and a hair-pin path up to Fernhill.

NCN7 ahead and possibly NCN75 across Bells Bridge shut for a running event. The sign refers to a diversion but it is not clear where the diversion signs are. See also #90343.

These barriers on the NCN7/75 look brand new and contravene @sustrans guidance on access controls: https://t.co/fR4xOMAmRt https://t.co/fNQV15dMJi

One of two people on bikes I saw using this section of the Garscadden Way.
