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]

The Queensway footway resumes at Falkland Drive.

The Mossneuk cycle route leaves Pitcairn Place to cross to the other side of Mossneuk Road just along from the bus stop.

The footbridge at the end of Dolphin Road has fairly steep ramps, but also has quite a bit of upstand on the kerbs on each side.

A connection from Bantaskin Street to Cowal Road, although there is no formal crossing across the latter, and not even a dropped kerb there. Should the awkward bit of the Kelvin Walkway (at #100566) ever be rebuilt, this will be the diversi ... [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]

The station is straight ahead, but again footway users have to go beyond the roundabout to cross, then head off to the right, to another roundabout.

Footway users have to go beyond the roundabout to cross.

The start of the shared footway on the east side of Robroyston Road. Just a dropped kerb to allow cyclists to join.

A cycleway around the roundabout in Nova Business Park.

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.

Cycle access to and across Shalesmoor at the end of Bowling Green Street, although the toucan crossing is staggered.

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).

Cycle facilities on Shalesmoor.

The start of the cycle markings on the footway of Leverndale Road. Unlike the dropped kerbs at the roundabouts, here the white diagonal line encloses the dropped kerb.

Crossing point at Raeswood Road.

A minimalist crossing put in for the Cardonald Quietway. Basically a patch of asphalt on the central reservation. Slightly diagonal too.

The Clyde Tunnel cycle track now has a dropped kerb across the end of it at the Cressy St junction.

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]

Shared use foot / cycleway, Hereford. The "End of Cycle Route" sign suggests rejoining the carriageway at this dropped kerb, although it is not very clear as there is no change in surface quality or width of this footway.

The line-segregated path ends and the cycle route to the station continues through the Waterloo Road car park.

A dropped kerb at the end of the Waterloo Road car park for accessing the railway station and the cycle parking there at #110734. The path also continues to a flight of steps up to the Park Road bridge.

The cycle lane that started in #110656 comes to an end, and the route to Wakefield Road (to the right) goes onto the footway to cross with the pedestrians... #110660

Cycling across from Market Street to Centenary Square. The opposite view to #110462.

An opportunity to leave the carriageway on Kirkgate in time to avoid the huge A61 roundabout.

Llandudno shared-use near a school, taken from a bus.

The full length of the Pearce Lane cycle track. For some strange reason, the dropped kerb at Water Row does not extend to the full width of the cycle track.

Narborough Road South

The cycle route joins a path.

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.
