Oh dear, they're real. https://t.co/5eDXgff4jr Simon adds: These orange flags are to be electively carried by people using the pedestrian crossing.

The crossings at the Old Dumbarton Road/Benalder Street junction still await raised carriageways, so these two had to bump the kerb in order to join the cycleway.

The crossings on Old Dumbarton Road still do not have raised carriageways, so continue to hinder cycling across. However, the cycleway is still blocked further along.

The shared footway on Bunhouse Road has been rebuilt, but has not had its dividing line reinstated. The zebra crossing has a random section of tactile paving nearby with no obvious purpose.

The toucan crossing across Argyle Street has been replaced by a pedestrian crossing and a separate cycle crossing. However, the approach is a bit cramped behind a bit of wall.

Subsiding pedestrian crossing tactiles at toucan crossing in Dyke Road.

Signal controlled pedestrian crossing, albeit temporary.

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]

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

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

The partly protected cycle lane in Provanmill Road is slightly wider than the advisory cycle lane it replaced. The pedestrian crossing is not working.

The cycle lanes on Broomfield Road are almost invisible now.

Despite the provision of a sign proudly pointing this way, there is still no dropped kerb to allow cyclists proper smooth access onto the carriageway of Springburn Way from the toucan crossing across Atlas Road. Not pictured, but while I ... [more]

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.

A Nextbike hire station has been added to Shields Road at the start of the Southwest City Way.

The Garscube Road cycle track is now open for business! Although the elephants feet crossing indicates to cross to Hinshaw Street, there are no turning restrictions, so it is possible to also continue along Garscube Road or head up Firhi ... [more]

The Garscube Road cycle track is now open for business!

Cyclists following the Glasgow to Paisley cycle route are to dismount and cross the road to the next 'Cyclists Dismount' sign, follow the footway around the corner to the pedestrian crossings at the motorway junction, cross over to the park ... [more]

The pedestrian crossings form part of the original Glasgow to Paisley cycle route, opened by Cllr Charlie Gordon back in 1993. This section is part of one of the many 'Cyclists Dismount' sections, and it remains so to this day. Nowadays, ... [more]

Approaching the end of the Hillington Park cycle route shared footway on Mossland Drive. The section beyond Huntly Road is a dead-end and does not connect with anything. It does not even have a dropped kerb from which to join the carriagewa ... [more]

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway blocked by two parked cars in one of the unused entrances that interrupts the cycleway.

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway crosses to the other side of the road on the approach to the roundabout at Kelvin Avenue, then crosses back again.

The proper Mossland Road cycle route has a dropped kerb to cross to the entrance on the opposite side, but the newer cycleway on the opposite side does not have a dropped kerb to allow access to it.

Footways on both sides of Mossland Road are signed as cycle routes, but the far side has the wrong type of sign for the type of cycle route. The footway then just ends in a bush. No dropped kerb to cross.

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway is on this side of the road, but the footway across the road now has a dividing line along it. Unlike #170674, the crossing is shared for both walking and cycling, and features a right-angle co ... [more]

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway is on this side of the road, but the footway across the road now has a dividing line along it. Separate cycle and pedestrian crossings have been provided.

Toucan crossing across Mosspark Boulevard to reach the Dumbreck Road shared footway route across the railway and motorway bridge, heading towards Pollok Country Park. If coming from the west, the grass separates the shared path from the ... [more]

The path alongside Bellahouston Park and Mosspark Boulevard leads directly to the toucan crossing across Dumbreck Road to Fleurs Avenue, but there is no link across the grass to the new toucan crossing across Mosspark Boulevard to join the ... [more]

The toucan crossing gives access to the protected South West Cityway cycle route on Shields Road.

The footway is meant to be shared-use, but is not signed as such, and is covered in debris from the disintegrating road surface. This provides a cycle route between the Clyde Tunnel and some entrances to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

The footway of Hillington Road (at least part of which is shared-use) is loosing width to the bush, which will need cut back at some point. The toucan crossing connects Penilee and Hillington as part of a minimal signage quietway style c ... [more]

The cycle crossing waiting area on Abbotsinch Road. See also #170247.

A closer look at the cycle crossing waiting area on Abbbotsinch Road.

It is without explanation, but I believe the thing on the left is to allow cyclists to pull in and wait to cross to the shared footway on the right. See also #170247. The ban on right turns presumably didn't take into account the route o ... [more]

The Hinshaw Street cycleway at the Maltbarns Street junction. It is not clear what the priorities at the junction might be, but in practice traffic volumes are generally low.

The end of the Hinshaw Street cycleway at the Maltbarns Street junction. The nib on the far side of the junction has a dropped kerb at the far side, if continuing along Hinshaw Street. The tactile strip is some new adhesive type I'd not see ... [more]

This is pretty much the full length of the Hinshaw Street cycleway. It ends at the Maltbarns Street junction.

A short section of cycleway in Hinshaw Street feeds into the cycleway in Garscube Road.

There is are no segregated cycle lanes on Schützenweg. At the railway crossing, there are no proper sidewalk either. Right north of the railway line, a major cycle route is also crossing Schützenweg. This area is growing rapidly with addi ... [more]

One day I'll come along here and it will be open. There's a continuous cycle track around the corner into Possil Road which continues as far as Baird's Brae. A short connection has been built in St George's Road, which will later be extende ... [more]

The Garscube Road cycleway still unopened at Possil Road. See update at #171177.

A Nextbike docking station at Keppochhill Road, with the St Rollox Drive cycle track in the background.

The cycleway on Craighall Road continues as far as the entrance to Speirs Wharf. This is not a good place to cross the road, but it looks like traffic signals will be installed.

The North Canal Bank Street cycleway joins to a cycleway along part of Craighall Road, but the cycleway swaps to having the cycle side on the opposite side of footway. I'm guessing that this isn't complete and the traffic signals will be re ... [more]

A raised crossing at this side access point, but not quite a continuous footway/cycleway.

A cycle hire station in Pollokshields on Maxwell Drive/St Andrew's Drive, and a painted footway cycle lane leading to a toucan crossing to the right.

The footway cycle lane from Maxwell Drive ends at the toucan crossing on St Andrew's Drive. The person cycling had come from the path from Maxwell Grove.

Answers on a postcard.

The pedestrian crossing on the Newlands to Silverburn cycle route at Thornliebank Road is out of use. This is quite a busy road, and being next to a roundabout it is not terribly easy to cross the road unaided at this location.

A flood prevention scheme has been implemented at Greenbank Park, and thus the entrances to the park have steps and ramps over the embankments that would contain any flooding. This is on the cycle route between Newlands and the Silverburn S ... [more]

A humped zebra crossing in Shawbridge Street, this time with Belisha beacons, and also Cyclists Dismount signs.

Finally after 14 months, Brampton Hut NMU crossing is open. 💕 @camcycle @HuntsPostDebbie https://t.co/o8o9eDLXYM

The upgraded M77 motorway sliproad crossing at Dumbreck Road. However, the footway beyond is still quite narrow, and the pop-up cycle lane seeks to address this.

The funding sign for the Dumbreck Road/Mosspark Boulevard junction improvements, that included a staggered toucan crossing and footway upgrade to shared-use. This project linked up the Haggs Road/Dumbreck Road shared footway and NCN7/75 ... [more]

The western footway of Dumbreck Road is now shared-use as far as the Mosspark Boulevard junction, although the only sign to confirm this appears to be the low-level green sign seen on the railings in the background.

The cycle traffic signals at Dargarvel Avenue, at the Dumbreck Road/Dumbreck Avenue junction. The junction also has toucan crossings around two sides. The shapes of the gaps do not make it easy to make movements straight across the junction ... [more]

Forgot to post this one last week but stumbled across a parallel Zebra crossing on a roundabout arm somewhere outside Rickmansworth. Looks like it's been there a few years. Ebury Roundabout Geometry is horrid & multi-lane is bad, but ... [more]

Canniesburn Toll roundabout, where changes are proposed including signalisation. See https://arcg.is/1P81rb A cyclist crosses between footways to avoid cycling on the road.

Madingley Road

As with #169532, the first opportunity to leave the presumably shared footway (there are no signs to confirm this) is beyond the roundabout where a dropped kerb crossing has been provided.

Oldenburg's rolling bascule railwaybridge over the river Hunte has a footpath attached on both sides. The rail network operator DB Netz AG is blocking the footbridge on the city facing, eastern side of the rolling bascule bridge. Re-opening ... [more]

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 northbound South City Way cycle track is now operating at the Cumberland Street junction, but the southbound is closed off awaiting the installation of the two-way cycle track in Gorbals Street. The junction is marked as being for "a ... [more]

The connection to Surrey Street from the South City Way cycle track on Pollokshaws Road is no longer marked (as it was previously, see #37220), but is implied with a dropped kerb available (although part of a pedestrian crossing) and ends a ... [more]

A toucan crossing across the Clydeside Expressway sliproad, but not across Finnieston Street. Nothing to say any footway is legal for cycling. The toucan crossing is one of a chain of toucan crossings leading to the path to Minerva Street.

Toucan crossings all around the junction, but are any of the footways actually legal to cycle on? In any case, that street lighting column is blocking the footway.

Maybe not terribly useful for cycling, but the path that crosses Buccleuch Street on its way from West Graham Street to Hill Street and Renfrew Street does not have dropped kerbs at either side. There are also some cycle parking stands l ... [more]

It must be a cycle path if it has a barrier across it. Ah, but it leads to a pedestrian crossing, not a toucan crossing, and the path on the other side does not align with the crossing. I noticed while waiting that a number of vehicles w ... [more]

The shared footway on Aikenhead Road, at the junction with Polmadie Road. There is no off-road cycling option for journeys that do not continue along Aikenhead Road. All the crossings are for pedestrians only.

Car parking on the Spean Street shared footway.

Corkerhill Road, with a cycle lane for northbound cyclists, and a toucan crossing for those going via Pollok Park (following NCN7 and NCN75). Protection of the cycle lane by means of armadillos starts after the bus stop.

Linthaugh Terrace meets Corkerhill Road, where NCN7 and NCN75 cross over to the footway on the far side of the dual carriageway. If not going via Pollok Park, northbound cyclists should stay on this side where there is a (now protected) cyc ... [more]

Pedestrian connection and crossing from Waterfoot Terrace to and across Brockburn Road, which could easily be improved to allow cycling, until such time as replacing the Barrhead Road/Peat Road roundabout comes about.

The unusual road sign on the Crossloan Road traffic island remains.

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 and from the cycle lanes without pulling out into the outside lane (an improvement over #93383). ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Hurricane Way, York. Hurricane Way is a through route for people on cycles and on foot - it's permeable-ish (see: #167734) only to these modes. It's also a retail destination. You can get here mostly traffic-free from ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Hurricane Way, York. It's a long way to the other side: four lanes including the right turn into B&Q. On a heavy and/or laden cycle or with a trailer of purchases you won't be nippy and there's no drop kerb to access t ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Hurricane Way, York. A driver cuts the corner. I've experienced drivers cutting off much larger chunks here and at the other exits from the outlets on this road. For other images on this topic see: #167969 and links. F ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Hurricane Way, York. There is no provision for people on cycles to exit B&Q: a) to reach the shared-use, offroad route on the opposite side of the roads, or, b) to use the carriageway easily/safely to be able to turn r ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Hurricane Way, York. Cyclists are expected/directed to be on the path here see: #167737, #167367. There is no provision for people using the shared-use, offroad route to cross to B&Q. There's no drop kerb to leave the ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York. This (the third, from Tesco) zebra has clear markings. There's no lack of space to make these zebras into the shared (ped-cycle) designs ('parallel crossing'). For more images taken here today ... [more]

The cycle track alongside Fountainwell Road ends here, with some Guidance Path tactile paving. It looks suspiciously like it will go no further on this side, and it crosses over to a new path on the other side of what can be quite a busy (a ... [more]
