Bridge over the White Cart at Pollok House.

Paths on both sides of the canal at Linnvale have bumpy surfaces.

Hay-On-Wye

The little bridge across the Forth & Clyde Canal in Clydebank appears to have stuck. Access is still available across the main bridge at the shopping centre, but this is often busy with pedestrians, making this a preferred route for cycling ... [more]

The line narrowing the shared footway over the motorway bridge, and a scooter user approaching.

The shared footway over the motorway bridge has a solid line marking near the railing. Is this because the railing is too low for a shared use footway/cycleway to be there?

No dropped kerb for access to the bridge across the railway and M80 motorway, connecting Robroyston Road to Winifred Street and the other half of Robroyston Road.

A wide bridge across the M80 motorway and railway for walking and, presumably, cycling.

No dropped kerb at western access to motorway bridge in Winifred Street.

The disused railway bridge at Maunby is open to cyclists thanks to a welcoming farmer - the bridleway to the south is a surfaced farm road. Other nearby crossings of the Swale are busy main roads.

More barriers at the foot of the ramp of the motorway footbridge, making 12 half-width panels to navigate around in total.

More barriers on the motorway footbridge.

More barriers on the motorway footbridge. Offsetting the stairs from the main span would have protected them from anyone inadvertently falling down them, if that's what these barriers are for.

The footbridge between Cockels Loan and Arkleston Road over the M8 motorway. The ramps have multiple barriers to slalom around. A desire line is developing in the grass from the north east.

The Boquhanran Road underpass beneath the Forth & Clyde Canal. I'm sure the road network would still function if this was shut to motor traffic and a more suitable surface laid for safer cycling.

A former railway bridge in Carmichael Street that Highways England has proposed for filling in. This one is probably no loss since the area either side has been developed and the railway cutting filled in.

The new bridge across the Black Cart Water is now in place, and awaiting completion of work.

The bridge between the bascule bridge and the Inchinnan Bridge only has a narrow footway on one side. The access to the new bridge must therefore be via some new path constructed off to the left.

The bascule bridge on Inchinnan Road in Renfrew. I'm not sure what the Cyclists Dismount sign relates to.

Some sort of pipe dangling from the road bridge over the River Kelvin and NCN7.

Bridge on Coldhams Common with the grass cut back for Chisholm Trail work.

The bridge appears to be in the process of being rebuilt.

A pop-up painted cycle lane has appeared on George V Bridge, wider than the narrow stepped lane to its left, but still inside of a left turn motor vehicle lane, so probably best to continue moving out if not turning left.

The Tradeston Bridge is presently shut for work to be done.

Building work continues at Clyde Place. The cycle track approaching the Tradeston Bridge has been rebuilt. However, the position of the temporary railing directed me onto the new kerb which I wasn't expecting.

The signs at the foot of the footbridge connecting the two parts of Beech Avenue across the M8 motorway. The direction sign is obscured by tree braches, and not visible if following the original Paisley to Glasgow cycle route (an important ... [more]

The western footway of Dumbreck Road over the railway and motorway bridges here is now shared-use. Although the footway is only slightly wider, various permanent clutter has been removed such as a cabinet and sign poles.

Bascule Bridge on Inchinnan Road, Renfrew.

First outing on the new ramp linking Aylestone Meadows with Leicester's Great Central Way. Really good - both in design and appearance. Cheers, @OweniteAdam and @Leicester_News https://t.co/hWZ43n0q6N

After the bridge, the footway reverts to the east side of the gated section of Bogside Road.

The footway on the gated road changes sides at the bridge, and the remains of Bogside Road disappear into the housing development in the distance.

A gate has been provided across the full width of the road beyond the station. Partly due to its colour, I didn't realise it covered the full width of the road until I'd passed the last opportunity to leave the carriageway and join the (per ... [more]

[Update 28.5.21 see: #169758.] [Image taken 18.3.21] Monk Bridge, Heworth Green York. This sign has been removed from the shared use route and not replaced. It must have a value. At present it's clutter. Or, if it fell, a hazard.

Essex Bridge, between Great Haywood and Shugborough Hall - one of the longest surviving packhorse bridges in England. It's a long way round by road.

[Image taken 17.4.21] New Walk junction with Blue Bridge Lane. Covid-19 safety information on a banner on railings where people will see it - at the point they pass on foot or cycle. This is good practice. But it doesn't extend to signage. ... [more]

Traffic counters, including for the cycle lane, on Glasgow Bridge.

[Image taken 31.3.21] Hurrah! A No vehicle idling sign. It's at a bus stop on Museum Street, York. Clutter be damned! Let's hope it's the first of very many. And that it leads to attitude and behaviour changes among all drivers, professiona ... [more]

Work progressing on the new bridge across the Forth & Clyde Canal at Stockingfield Junction.

The traffic signals at Lochburn Road are now operational, and the low-level cycle signals give a head-start of a few seconds before the main signals change.

Half of the cycleway has now been lost to the collapsing bridge, the quantity of cones and fencing is increasing fast - perhaps it needs to be fixed now? [on 8 April Cambridgeshire County Council replied "We are pleased to let you know tha ... [more]

The signed diversion route is shut! Still no dropped kerb.

The bridge between North Wallace Street and Sighthill is being replaced, and diversions have been signed to Craighall Road and Pinkston Road.
