The arrangement of the bus shelter across the path end does not make for the neatest possible layout.

A new path has been built towards Kinfauns Drive, and has Drumchapel Way branded marker posts on either side, but there are no dropped kerbs or any other form of crossing on the road at this point. The original route of the Drumchapel Way … [more]

Looking the opposite way from #180493, the Drumchapel Way path awaits rebuilding on the east side of Kinfauns Drive, but a new path has been build on the west side, ending at a Drumchapel Way marker post next to the bus shelter, but with no … [more]

I find it strange that, of all the bus stops around the city of Glasgow, the two sites chosen for the green-roof bus shelters are both at locations that are no longer served by bus services due to the adjacent Fastlink busway. See also … [more]

A green-roofed bus shelter replacing another shelter at a bus stop that is no longer used by any bus services due to the Fastlink busway. See also #174947.

The Stewartfield cycle path meets West Mains Road. Navigate between the bus shelter and the cabinet to get to the toucan crossing.

The Calderwood Road shared footway, with a bus shop, footway parking, and a pinch-point crossing on the road across to a school.

Both paths have cycle signs on them, so possibly could divert if a heavily laden bus pulls up and starts unloading, but otherwise the left path goes directly to the school and the right is for following Calderwood Road.

Options to pass in front of or behind the bus shelter, depending on bus passenger activity.

The Calderwood Road shared footway passing a bus stop at the sports centre.

The Hallglen cycle path goes around a bus shelter in New Hallglen Road.

The cycleway suddenly turns from a shared-use footway behind the bus shelter and jumps into an on-road two-way cycle lane.

Bromley. Where the civil engineers go to die

A new cycle route on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. A bus stop impasse? It appears the intent is that cyclists using this cycle lane should use the dropped kerb to join the footway and go around the back of … [more]

A new cycle route on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The view from the rear of the bus shelter in #99493.

A new cycle route on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. Quite why a proper bus stop bypass wasn't installed here I don't know. The bus shelter should be moved closer to the boarder and the segregated cycle … [more]

A shared use path has been provided alongside Moss Road, from Langcroft Road to the Shieldhall Roundabout where it just stops.

A 2018 Glasgow cycle infrastructure.

The cycle track linking Kingarth Street with Victoria Road, right at the bus stop.

There is a cycle track linking Kingarth Street with Victoria Road, but it's right at the bus stop. Hopefully this will be sorted by the South City Way works.

The cycle track between Bowman Street and Victoria Road goes around the bus shelter. Hopefully this will be improved by the South City Way works.

A bus stop bypass of sorts on the shared-use footway of Springburn Road.

A bus shelter obstructing the newly designated shared-use southern footway of Pacific Drive. The adjacent busway is for Fastlink buses only. Not even the approach taken in #97746 has been adopted here. No buffer strip either. So many … [more]

The southern footway of Pacific Drive has now been declared as shared use. For no obvious reason, it does not have the marked "buffer zone" that Govan Road (see #97688), rebuilt at the same time, has. Note also the bus stops on the main … [more]

The footway past the bus stop is shared use, but how would anyone alighting from a bus know?

A very narrow shared-use footway past a bus stop.

Space for buggies?

A narrow footway unsuitable for cycling, but at either end has cycle facilities, seen in #90566 and #90572.

If cyclists are to stay on the footway at #90566, they will end up here at a very narrow section of footway through a bus shelter.

The Cathkin Relief Road's cycle path continues towards Mill Street.

South Lanarkshire Council is excelling itself here, I think.

A ludicrous arrangement at the bus stop on Main St. Not just the conflict caused by directing cyclists through the bus stop waiting area on the footway, but the raised kerb and drain cover at the start of the cycle lane! See also #89204.

A crazy arrangement for cycling on the footway through the bus stop. And watch out for the kerb when joining the cycle lane ahead - only the left side is dropped. See also #89206.

Broadheath Trafford George Richards Way outside Asda. The new road layout has not replaced the cycle icons to denote segregated/shared footpath Worse the bus shelter is placed in the cycle lane ! Would help to have a couple of dropped kerbs … [more]

The application for Sustrans Community Links funding mentioned the Springburn Expressway having "a very wide (up to 6 metres) footpath". However, in places it is quite narrow, and at this bus shelter in particular there is plenty of room to … [more]

Blind corner caused by bus shelter on NCN 7 shared-use footway at Prestwick Airport.

"Please do not obstruct" - oh, the irony! See also #85962.

A new bus shelter in the way of the Clyde Gateway cycle track, which has been crudely diverted around the side, without any footway widening. Madness!

The Clyde Gateway cycle track has been crudely diverted around the new bus shelter, but no extra land has been taken to make the footway any wider to compensate. The diverted markings have even been changed since they didn't leave any room … [more]

'Allo 'allo 'allo, what do we have 'ere then? An inappropriately positioned bus shelter obstructing the cycle track, and no widening of the footway to compensate.

A very narrow section of Clyde Gateway cycle track past the back of a bus shelter, and poor visibility of motor traffic for merge onto carriageway where there is a left-hook risk at the Dunn Street multi-lane junction.

One of the four bus shelters plonked on the Clyde Gateway cycle track, with the cycle track crudely diverted around it. Watch out for that lamppost! Bus shelter also hides cyclists merging onto carriageway just beyond, where there is a … [more]

Close-up of #71301, showing bus shelter with cycle track diverted around it.

One of the four bus shelters plonked on the Clyde Gateway cycle track, with the cycle track crudely diverted around as an afterthought. Seen closer in #71302. No cycle access to blocked-off side street.

@glasgowCC the public realm/shared use at Broomielaw gets worse!Get a grip!

A bus shelter on the shared-use footway on the new alignment of Long Bank.

I'm not convinced that designating the side of the path that the bus shelter is on as the cycle lane is a great move.

The cycle path takes a messy route around the bus stop and footbridge.

@magnatom @sallyhinch Lane already altered and a "sorry for the inconvenience" sign from @GlasgowCC [Update on #67338]

@magnatom @sallyhinch The solution (as long as you're not a pedestrian stepping off a bus?!) [Subsequently altered to #67380]

"Why don't cyclists use cycle paths" well done @GlasgowCC on new bus stop placement. #slowclap [A video of another bus shelter on the same road]

.@GlasgowCC - any idea who allowed new bus shelters to be plonked on cycle lanes in Dalmarnock area?. @S4CGlasgow

A 'Cycles Only' sign and no room for pedestrians to get around the bus shelter.

The footway along one side of Marine Parade East is shared use. The widening around this bus shelter is laughable!

Work underway on creating the Clydebank North Circular Link alongside the A82. The footway beyond the bus stop is closed for surface repairs. This bus stop and shelter was only recently put in but no account appears to have been made of … [more]

This is NCN56, on a site that has been totally rebuilt in recent years. Everything here could have been done differently.


This is NCN 56.

Bad, just bad!

Bus stop and shelter on the Pollokshaws Road shared-use footway. This one at least has reasonable visibility, except of course for people within the shelter.

Found this in the middle of route 756 today at Rutherglen. Shared path. Any advice? @magnatom @sustrans

Shared use footway with bus shelter blocking full width of pedestrian half, on NCN14
