Aside from the cars parked in the cycle lane, the lane is approached through hatching which normally means don't drive or cycle here except in an emergency.

Here we go... problem is still happening, how long will it take the council to respond to a letter on the issue? 🤷🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️ @f0rmat @CyclingSurgeon @GoBikeGlasgow @SustransScot @GlasgowCC May I add before I got my ... [more]

The straight across access from the Berryknowes Road flats to Kingsland Drive (see also #112402) has been blocked off, including to cycles. The turning head is used for fly car parking.

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

The kind of dropped kerb that really needs nibbed to protect it from car parking. The kerb across the road is completely blocked. On this side of Holmfauldhead Place a shared-use footway has been created between this dropped kerb and the ... [more]

More cars parked in the Cardonald Place Road contraflow cycle lane. When I got to the traffic signals, I waited for two pedestrian phases and still the cycle phase did not happen.

A private hire car parked on double yellow lines, in a contraflow cycle lane, and partly on the footway.

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]

A car driver parked on the contraflow cycle lane in Broadway, and another in the bus stop.

A cycle lane on an already hostile road environment blocked by a taxi driver. The cycle lane leads to a slip onto the shared-use area at the toucan crossing.

Park wherever you like in Britannia Street.

@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]

@helenpidd Howard Street in central Glasgow. A bike lane that goes against the flow of traffic. But it’s just a car park lane and taxi drop off. Yesterday there was more car than bike lane visible... If you ride it you’re forced into th ... [more]

@cyclestreets Spean St, Glasgow - the pedestrian/cycle path is effectively just a residents' car park. @SustransScot @citycyclists @GoBikeGlasgow @LStreetsScot and while I am here > @StewartMcDonald @glasgowc @MMorganSNP @policescotland ... [more]

This fencing has been obstructing the access to the Sighthill motorway foot and cycle bridge for some time, even though the bridge is for now still open. The fencing appears to be being used to create nothing more than a contractor's parkin ... [more]

Obstructive car and van parking on Striven Gardens.

I thought I could get through on the left at Striven Gardens, but see #108225.

The path from Fairfield Place arrives at Arrotshole Road, but the whole area is cluttered with parked vehicles and materials.

The path from Fairfield Place at a car yard, where some vehicles were backed further onto the path than others.

The access to NCN756 is vulnerable to blockage by van parking at Glamis Drive.

A dropped kerb in Tannahill Drive blocked by car parking, where the cycle route to Brancumhall joins the carriageway.

A dropped kerb on Alison Lea blocked by car parking.

The cycle path from Mungo Park to the Murrayhill underpass being used as a private driveway, with a sign for East Kilbride's cycle route 1 hidden behind a bush.

The path to the canal could not only be wider, and have a dropped kerb at the end, but could also meet the road nearer the corner to avoid being blocked by parked vehicles. The priority sign to the right needs corrected too.

Painted cycle lanes don’t work, especially if the council just keeps turning a blind eye to those who abuse it. I tried to speak to the guy in the car and ask why he thought it was okay for him to park there, no response. @GoBikeGlasgow ... [more]

The only (?) Segregated cycleway between Midlothian and the city and it's used as parking on a frequent basis for housing development. @lmacinnessnp @SEStCC @SpokesLothian https://t.co/MknV62iylB

This type of infra is excellent but will be wasted money unless protective measures are included too. @GlasgowCC @collin_little @GoBikeGlasgow https://t.co/QRSaqPbHhQ

Parking on the pavement can be very dangerous https://twitter.com/dashcamnetwork/status/1082573580561498113 . No excusing the actions of the driver of the Black diesel Corsa but the vans parked on the pavement obstruct the view. No excusing ... [more]

When the tiny bit of cycle infrastructure in BIRMINGHAM is treated with respect. FFS. https://t.co/PqI3Gadecd

Look, I know it's shit infrastructure, just a bit of paint, but there's multistorey and surface car parking within a couple of hundred metres. I have to cycle against the flow of motorised traffic because you're a selfish twat. Thanks. ... [more]

They're still at it @AnnaLangside @GoBikeGlasgow @GlasgowCC Really think the segregation needs to be more substantial https://t.co/08xkctm49Z

How am I supposed safely cycle up this street if cars are parked in the contraflow cycle lane, forcing me into on coming traffic? @GlasgowCC @AnnaLangside https://t.co/jcbx6GVDyv

Obstructive parking in Craigton Road, next to a partially empty ASDA car park.

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]

Kirk Wynd looking towards the High Street, with a taxi parked across the courtesy crossing.

If it's not for cars then it's alright to park across. Still no surfaced connection to NCN7.

The usual obstructive parking encroaching the door-zone cycle lane and pavement parking in Alderman Road. Maybe it's time for the Alderman Road scheme to be ripped up and a cycleway built next to the footway and car parking placed next to t ... [more]

The new cycle lane in Archerhill Road needs swept, and a motorist has decided to park in the gap between orcas at the BMX centre entrance.

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.

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.

Car parking in the under construction cycle track in Archerhill Road, opposite the, erm, car parking layby.

Car parking on the under construction cycle track in Archerhill Road.

The entrance to the path at Bredisholm Road is being used as a parking space.

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

Why people cycling don’t use the provided infrastructure #7639. Approached a taxi driver blocking this same section earlier. Pointed out the solid white. He shrugged. ‘I’m dropping someone off’. Glasgow. https://t.co/j4xUZ4yLuT

When I turned into Holmfauld Place from Govan Road I noticed a white line on the footway. On investigation, it turns out the only way onto this shared cycleway is via the dropped kerb next to the black car.

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

What's that rule about not parking within so many metres of a junction? A car parked blocking entrance to the cycle track, so that it becomes easier to go around the other side of the traffic island to get to Lorne Street.

No access to the cycle track from the side road. Not unique.

Well, it's partly clear.

I'm not sure this is the intended use for an area marked 'Keep Clear'.

Footway parking along Nithsdale Road on the climb up from Dumbreck station.

"Welcome to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital" if arriving on foot or by bike.

Footway parking on Waterfront Avenue has reached its magnificent worst this morning. You can see where the bollards were removed and the end result. Frequently meet cars head on on the cycle track. https://t.co/yHlOgGBuJc

The northern footway of Govan Road, between Harvie Street and Pacific Drive, has been rebuilt as shared use, including a marked buffer zone between it and the carriageway. However, the dropped kerb for anyone exiting Festival Park now has a ... [more]

When this area at Partick station was repaved, I thought it might be getting prepared for the installation of the large double decker bike racks, given the congestion on the existing cycle parking. But no, it has been getting used for car p ... [more]

Literally nowhere else to park! (*not)

How is anyone to safely use Leith Walk cycle lane when this is a daily sight @edinhelp @Edinburgh_CC @leithsworstpark https://t.co/CkMQTEgq8c

The Doune Quadrant/Doune Gardens problem is still very much there.

Texting, engine running, not aware of those around her...

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

'Bus / cycle lane'

The new administration at Glasgow City Council wasted no time in "standardising" (downgrading) all 24-hour bus lanes in Glasgow to operate only 7am-7pm, but this peak-hour bus lane remains peak-hours only. Enforcement is unchanged.

Footway car parking outside new student accommodation, including reversing across the shared-use footway/cycleway. There is plenty available on-road car parking, and a cheap all-day car park next door (behind the trees).

It must be the weather that puts people off cycling in Glasgow, or the hills...

A cycle bypass has been built for the junction, but left vulnerable to blockage by car parking. Again, no signage.

A car blocking the dropped kerb at the top of the ramp from Hillpark Drive. The path itself is not particularly smooth.

A car parked over a dropped kerb that forms part of the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route.

Plenty of car parking infrastructure in Yorkhill, but proper bike parking is hard to find. However, contraflow cycling is allowed on the one-way streets.

The cycle lane shifts from the kerbside to the door-zone.

The narrow door-zone cycle lane swerves into the back of some parked cars. On the other side of the road, there's a car parked partly in the cycle lane, partly on the footway.

The Broomhouse cycle lane goes over a flattened build-out, then becomes a painted door-zone cycle lane.

A woman almost hit by car at this zebra this morning. Driver's view obstructed by vehicles parked on zigzag in middle of road @Glasgowcc >> https://t.co/83ZilN4JZZ

Cars being parked on the Kelvin Walkway and West City Way, because someone has removed some of the bollards that mark the limit of the car park.

Getting from Sandy Road to NCN7 on Beith Street involves negotiating a maze of parked cars and kerbs.

Contraflow cycling on the road to Yorkhill Hospital. Not much room for passing other than vacant car parking spaces, but downhill for an easy restart.

Since my last visit, two dropped kerbs have been installed, but one of them is completely blocked by a parked car.

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.

Overflow car parking at the college.

A car parked across the dropped kerb for the route (74) crossing. The sign post isn't much better.

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).

A motorist that doesn't understand how the footway works. A bus stop bypass with zebra crossing.

Cars parked blocking a dropped kerb, leaving only just enough room for a standard bike to squeeze through.

Genius https://t.co/rKMaJkTbOR

Car parked in Holmston Road cycle lane at entrance to riverside walkway.

On the climb to the top of the hill one is rewarded with leaves and regular car parking in the cycle lane.

Linlithgow sure knows how to present its historic monuments!

Car parking bays painted on the expensive stone paving slabs, and hardly any space left for pedestrians. But still the motorists haven't got enough space and double park.
