The end of McClue Avenue has been shorted and the area given over to parkland, but there's no proper dropped kerb to access the path to the left.

The path connecting Cogan Street and Shawbridge Street has been laid out for pedestrian use only, but provides a route to and from the retail park that avoids Nether Auldhouse Road, so would be useful for cycling too. Although there is a ... [more]

[Image taken 31.5.21] Butcher Terrace, York. The drop kerb has been extended. Compare with: https://goo.gl/maps/dnXUQ9xDR5j2Xzjr6 On 20 Mar 2020 the then York Walking/Cycling Officer said he would ask the Environment Agency to do this as pa ... [more]

A cycle link between Milngavie Road and Macfarlane Road. Each bollard displays a different sign.

The gate at Robroyston station closes off the full width of the carriageway, and a dropped kerb has been provided on only one side of it to enable cyclists to join the footway and go around it. The nearest dropped kerb on the other side of ... [more]

The path from Prospecthill Circus to Polmadie Road is being rebuilt. This end is pretty much complete.

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]

A Fire Path with no provision for cycling separating Potterhill Road and Linthaugh Road, and looking along Bonnyholm Avenue with NCN7 and NCN75 in the distance. The council's Active Travel directional signage can be seen on the far side of ... [more]

Cycle symbols have appeared at the entrance to the pedestrian precinct in Cambridge Street, apparently in contradiction to the 'No Vehicles' signs. Sauchiehall Street is a Core Path (which permits cycling), but Cambridge Street is not.

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]

The cycle path along St Rollox Drive now extends onto Fountainwell Road.

Traffic filtering on NCN7. This separates a small residential area from the industrial estate.

Former Fire Path at Allander Street where it meets Ashfield Street. No provision for cycling through, although not much in the way of hindrance either, and the area awaits redevelopment. Through motor traffic here would be undesirable due t ... [more]

The final section of the link between Stockwell Place and Dunlop Street, where it crosses between the westbound and eastbound sections of Howard Street to access Dunlop Street, isn't marked in any way. The kerbs are are not well aligned eit ... [more]

The cycle track linking Stockwell Place to Dunlop Street, providing an alternative route for a banned turn from Stockwell Street into Clyde Street, and a local link between parts of Howard Street and Dunlop Street. The green surface is b ... [more]

Van parking obstructing the dropped kerb for the path connecting Plean Street to the NCN7 cycle path. The bollard is largely superfluous, given the width of the opening.

Dropped kerbs both sides on the underpass at Cowlairs Road, but stepped ramp up to the path alongside the Springburn Expressway.

Uncontrolled crossing of Alderman Road, signed for cycling and walking. View opposite to that in #165306.

Uncontrolled crossing of Alderman Road, signed for cycling and walking. No change from #36030.

The signed path between Hawick Street and Kelso Street is obviously not fit for purpose, but nothing has been done to this path since it was initially installed. No change since #36031.

The Kelso Street cycle lane directs cyclists to use a narrow path of paving slabs, with hoop barriers at the end. Sightlines on the corner are not great either.

Poor design makes the path from Alderman Road to Kelso Street vulnerable to obstruction by car parking. There is a dropped kerb and faded green patch, but they are insufficient to prevent motorists blocking them. A build-out is required. ... [more]

The dropped kerb on the right (see #46778) is blocked by van parking, and the stopped up section of road is also covered with indiscriminate parking.

Entering Barton There is a dropped kerb here now, resolving the issue flagged up 12 years ago in #19386.

Dropped kerb at Barnwell Meadow where Chisholm Trail will meet Newmarket Road. Significant remaining upstand renders it dangerous for oblique approach.

New dropped kerb at Barnwell Meadow where the Chisholm Trail will meet Newmarket Road. It's not even close to 'flush', and potentially very dangerous for any oblique approach from the on-road painted cycle lane.

Marmora Road build out at junction with Suez Road. There is a dropped kerb within the buildout.

Glebe Street meets Hunter Street and Montgomery Street in East Kilbride Village. I never noticed when I took the photograph, but the cycle parking stands look like they may be removable.

The dropped kerb for entering the Whitemoss Avenue underpass from Whitemoss Road has been positioned in an awkward place handier for the steps than the ramp, and is only convenient for coming from the east. There is already a dropped kerb a ... [more]

A dropped kerb has been installed at the end of the Garriochmill Way path, but the retention of the painted car parking bay across it causes it to frequently be blocked by car parking.

A dropped kerb has been installed at the end of the Garriochmill Way path.

With the dropped kerb on the right, the cycle track connecting North Woodside Road to Hopehill Road/Maryhill Road junction is blocked by the hire bike. Weaving around the hire bike thus becomes necessary, when having the dropped kerb in the ... [more]

A dropped kerb at this entrance to the path alongside the canal in Thorne, but not at the other at #112659.

A 20mph zone and shared footway at West Bar. I maybe should have taken the photo a little way back to show better how the dropped kerb is the wrong side of the 'give way' line at the West Bar roundabout, which could cause problems for a ... [more]

Temporary roadworks signage hinting at what's to come - the effective end of the cycle lanes through the roadworks zone. The dropped kerb allows cycle access to and from the riverside path, although there is a build-up of mud evident in ... [more]

A toucan crossing across Wicker, and a point to leave the carriageway to either use the crossing or join the path to the riverside. I'm uncertain what the role of the bollard is.

A point to leave the A61 Shalesmoor dual carriageway and turn right using the toucan crossing, or turn left to access Bowling Green Street (at #112466).

The dropped-kerb pedestrian crossing across Hurlet Road, near the roundabout for Grahamston 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]

Ramped access to the underpass under the M8, linking Barfillan Drive and Jura Street to Craigton Road. This is the nearest dropped kerb if coming from Jura Street. Lots of roadspace crying out for some reallocation to enable active travel.

A dropped kerb has indeed been installed (see #98305), providing access to the toucan crossing.

In addition to the obstructive railing and poorly positioned dropped kerb, the poorly placed signage has completely faded out.

Now that the cabins are away and the street has returned to normal, it appears that nothing was done to improve cycle permeability. There is an off-centre dropped kerb, but the 'No Entry' signs prohibit cycle movements across the road closu ... [more]
