The Stewartfield Way cycleway takes a detour half way to the next roundabout at each of the Macivor Crescent junctions. It may even be quicker, although marginally longer, just to cycle round Macivor Crescent.

The Stewartfield Way cycleway takes a detour half way to the next roundabout at each of the Macivor Crescent junctions. It may even be quicker, although marginally longer, just to cycle round Macivor Crescent.

The Stewartfield Way cycleway crosses Macneish Way (which is the entrance to the Morrison's supermarket) here, but no help to cross this busy road, not even use of a central island due to where the dropped kerbs have been installed.

The underpass beneath Kingsway at the end of Maxwellton Road has ramps and is possible to cycle, but has lots of sharp corners. The dropped kerb is also a bit of a bump.

NCN756 leaves the railway path and joins The Gateway and Mavor Avenue.

The start of a very narrow shared-use footway on Stoneymeadow Road. The dropped kerb is just beyond the map sign.

To get onto the cycle route to Stewartfield from NCN756 on West Mains Road, the simplest way appears to be to use the slip onto Torrance Road and then the dropped kerb inside the junction.

Pavement-hopping at Brancumhall Road.

A path connecting Galloway Road to Brancumhall Road.

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 original cycle track from the Whitemoss Roundabout joins Calderwood Road, but a new shared-use footway starts and continues to the Alison Lea Health Centre, from where there is a local cycle route extending to Brancumhall.

No barriers at the Livingstone Drive crossing, but potentially vulnerable to obstruction by car parking.

Toucan crossing across Murray Road at Whitehills Terrace.

Dumped rubbish partially blocking a dropped kerb at Fir Drive garages.

Duntocher Road approaching the Kilbowie Roundabout, with access to the cycleway around the roundabout.

A closeup of the kerb seen in #107321.

Kilbowie Road northbound approaching the Kilbowie Roundabout, including an access to the cycleway around the roundabout. A flush kerb (see #107322) was installed at each of the accesses to the cycleway at the insistence of the local cycling ... [more]

The start of the Kilbowie Roundabout cycleway when coming from Kilbowie Road southbound. One presumes that the 'No Stopping Clearway' and 'Give Way to Pedestrians' signs aren't aimed at the same roaduser, even though they are mounted one ... [more]

A poor quality surface at the start of the Cleddans Burn path, part of the Garscadden Way cycle route and Drumchapel Way walking route. The footway on the Goals access road swaps from the north to the south side at this point.

The dropped kerb to access Beardmore Community Park is not best placed.

A road closure with bollards and dropped kerbs on Old Dalnottar Road.

Line segregation, apparently.

Signage for the Forth & Clyde Canal, and a dropped kerb to aid access.

The Cycle Quietway through Knightswood links the Orca cycle routes on Dyke Road and Lincoln Avenue without going along Alderman Road. The entrance to the Lincoln Avenue cycle track is rather cluttered and the cycle track itself can barel ... [more]

The new dropped kerb - see #106301.

The nearest dropped kerb to the start of the path to Falkirk High station (see #103464) is on a very narrow section of footway, and together with the barriers makes for a needlessly awkward piece of cycling.

As seen in #103422, the dropped kerb on the Glenburn Road toucan crossing does not cover the full width of the tactiles.

At toucan crossing across Glenburn Road, the dropped kerb covers only about half the width of the tactiles. See close-up view at #103423.

The cycle lane marking at the end of Callendar Boulevard encourages cycling on the wrong side of the road, just like #101199 at the other end of the road.

The end of Callendar Boulevard and the start of the path to Old Redding Road.

A path connecting Chisholm Place to Portal Road, without even basic crossing facilities like dropped kerbs where it crosses Newlands Road.

A path connecting Portal Road to Chisholm Place, although there are no dropped kerbs (nor any other crossing facilities) where it crosses Newlands Road. The whole length of Portal Road (which runs parallel to the A905 Beancross Road) is rid ... [more]

The path alongside the Grange Burn, a bridge across the Grange Burn, and a sign for a completely cycleable walking route to Grangemouth Stadium.

A shared-use path starts on the left, to avoid the junction ahead, although NCN76 appears not to use it and instead turns at the junction, then turns again onto the next section of the same path. The dropped kerb is also far from flush, ... [more]

An assortment of barriers at the entrance to Stanrigg Memorial Park, so just as well the gate had been left open!

The way to avoid the steps at #101523 is to take the A9 road bridge across the railway, and the HArTT cycle route appears to do just that. However, there is no evidence that the narrow footway is legal for shared use, and the provision ... [more]

A shared footway in quiet Glendore Street, and I think the raised crossing in Medwyn Street in the foreground could be better aligned with the footway.

This appears to be the end of the Dyke Road cycleway and the cycle route to the new BMX centre in Knightswood Park. I'm surprised the footway hasn't been widened behind the toucan crossing traffic signals to allow more room for turning.

What I take to be the final layout at the Archerhill Road bus stop. The final white line (seen in #100294) directing cyclists into the undropped kerb has been blacked out.

Needless barriers at the Laurieston Road entrance to the Helix park. What are dismounted cyclists to do when there's no footway on the road ahead?

Needless barriers at the Laurieston Road entrance to the Helix park.

The exit from Callendar Park onto Callendar Boulevard, where cars are regularly left blocking the painted cycle lanes.

A route sign for the HArTT cycle route, directing cyclists onto the A9. There is no evidence to be seen that the footway on this section is legal for shared-use.

The dropped kerb required for cycling along the path in #100561, if it were not blocked by the parked van, is always obstructed by the lamppost. The 'No Through Road' needs an 'except cycles' sign if the path is to be considered to be pa ... [more]

A route sign not pointing the correct way to the Forth & Clyde Canal. And if that's a cycle parking stand, it may be better positioned in front of the shops, not at the rear. On the plus side, a dropped kerb has been installed since #332 ... [more]

The path cyclists are signed along in #100509 does not have a dropped kerb at the end, although there is one is a short distance along the footway near the mini-roundabout.

A pedestrian crossing across Great Western Road that could be upgraded to accommodate cycling between Kearn Avenue and Keal Avenue.

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

A closeup of the dropped kerb in #100293. The lining directs westbound cyclists into the undropped section of kerb. I am aware of one person who came off her bike at this location.

Call this a dropped kerb? Cut-through to Shafton Road.

Pinch-point traffic-calming on North Road, Bellshill. The dropped kerbs don't appear to have been thought through to create a half decent crossing for pedestrians.

Route 4 from Craiglinn joins the path to the B8048. I don't know which kerb I prefer to bump!

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

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 ... [more]

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.

The Summertown Road cycle route leaves the shared footway for the carriageway. Spot the clues.

A blind corner risk on the new Summertown Road shared footway. Note that the position of the dropped kerb discourages cycling away from the wall and towards the kerbline where there is better visibility.

The contraflow cycle lane on Blythswood Street is still incorrectly signed.

A new dropped kerb at the Caledonian University entrance, with cycle symbol, for turning from the main carriageway. But the cycle route is on the opposite footway.

A new dropped kerb at Braid Square, for access to the path to the Garscube Road footbridge.

A clumsy section of cycle route at Preston Place heading towards Govanhill Park, with a dropped kerb that is vulnerable to blockage by car parking.

A cycle track with right angled corners links between Nithsdale Road and the Pollokshaws Road toucan crossing, around the bins.

Signage for the Clyde Tunnel at the underpass in Burghead Drive. I'm not sure that's the way I'd walk to any of the destinations shown to the left.

A dropped kerb is to be added for access to the toucan crossing. Surely something that should have been done when this layout was originally built.

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]

Nothing to stop cars blocking this dropped kerb. Needs a double yellow or white H marking.

A simple encapsulation of the contempt for people who walk or cycle; snow from roadway piled up at dropped kerb on shared use route. #DontBlockTheDrop https://t.co/Dfdk38HHNJ

A dropped kerb in the diagonal road closure on Reidvale Street and Sword Street. Not signed for cycling, but unlikely to cause a problem. Interestingly, the dropped kerb on the far side appears to be newer than on this side.

Dropped kerbs have been installed at the access to the Village development (rectifying #71113), but that footway next to the stepped cycleway is so narrow!

A barrier at Clyde St, set back from the path entrance.

Not sure I can do this justice in photos. Alignment with dropped kerb is... bad. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 Gorbals Street https://t.co/5Z69lUGAoE

The crossing of Bunhouse Road is a mess, and is currently partially blocked by hoarding. In the background a van driver has blocked the cycleway with his van, right next to some car parking spaces on the road, and near a large car park j ... [more]

The barrier across the top end of the steep "pedestrian access route" to Linlithgow station.

So if I can stand in the middle of the road taking photos of the barrier, is the road really so dangerous that it needs the barrier?

The start of the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway in Ferry Road is completely anonymous.

I'm not sure the sign for Newark Castle is strictly necessary!

The Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route uses an old pelican crossing to cross Thornliebank Road, and even from this slightly elevated position, the ramp down to Harriet Place isn't visible, so proper signage is essential. Th ... [more]

It's the widest zebra crossing I've ever seen, but why are the Belisha Beacons covered up?

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

No sign to say the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route turns right here.

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.

NCN7 at the Meadow Road underpass, with a dropped kerb for anyone heading up Meadow Road itself.

Railing and kerb present obstacles to anyone wanting to cycle to residential Barrowfield Street, although the far end of the turning head does have a dropped kerb.

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

Painted markings direct cyclists from Rutherglen onto the road to the right, but NCN756 actually goes left towards the Smart Bridge. Some dropped kerbs nearer or behind the camera would be useful here.

Typical nonsense markings in South Lanarkshire, where it appears cyclists are meant to cross from the footway of Glasgow Road (off to the right) onto the footway in the foreground, then immediately leave it for the on-road cycle lane. No he ... [more]

The cycle route from Holytown station slowly but surely edging nearer to Eurocentral.

The path from Ballantrae Road over towards Blantyre.

Route (74) turns right, but the dropped kerb is on the left.

An unsignalled crossing of Blantyre Farm Road, next to the busy A724 mini-roundabout, for primary school children. The dropped kerb doesn't even match the width of the cycle markings.

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

Old Trafford by the Three Legs of Man pub dropped kerbs here would help on these quiet roads and encourage permeability for cyclists.

The position of the dropped kerb seems to be without any thought as to where people might want to cross.

Route NCN75 turns left onto the road here, but the nearest dropped kerb is behind the bush on the left.

I think this is actually the end of a cycle route, at Colchester (mainline) railway station.
