A white ghost bicycle in memory of someone killed here at the A82/A898 junction. https://www.clydebankpost.co.uk/news/15097952.ghost-bike-appears-in-roadside-tribute-to-cyclists-killed-on-a82-last-year/

Take care at the high speed junction at Mountblow Road.

Duntocher over the footbridge.

The Clydebank North Circular Link alongside the A82 dual carriageway, with some advance notice for motorists of roadworks in a different county!

Signs for the Clydebank North Circular Link alongside the A82 dual carriageway. The ramp to Glenhead Road replaces steps that were there previously.

A 'No Cycling' sign on what is now the much vaunted Clydebank North Circular Link cycleway alongside the A82 dual carriageway.

A toucan crossing over the A82 at the Kilbowie Roundabout. Are these the lowest call boxes ever, particularly on the far side?

The end of the Kilbowie Roundabout cycleway for those heading east. Join the A82 carriageway here.

Quite a lot of work to do on Dumbarton Road outside Clydebank Town hall to get to the artist's impression given in https://www.scottishconstructionnow.com/article/4-3m-project-to-transform-clydebanks-town-centre-links

Dumbarton Road has service roads in front of the houses most of the way between Western Isles Road and Mountblow Road. It wouldn't take the earth to create a cycle link between Old Dalnottar Road (see #107093) and here to form a quietway on ... [more]

Guidance requires: ☑️A pair of signs, for easy visibility from both lanes ☑️900mm diameter, for visibility at high speeds This ensures they are seen by cyclists doing 70mph in the outside lane https://t.co/S00hLs87hw

NCN76 turns right here towards Bo'ness while the Inchyra Road route carries on towards Grangemouth oil refinery (although this is not signed).

A sign with its posts blocking part of the width of the shared-use footway along Inchyra Road. The path clearly predates the sign. If someone is coming the other way, one of you will have to slow down to let the other go first.

A road sign straddling the shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road, with the posts more or less at the edges of the path, unlike the next sign.

NCN76 joins the shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road, but has several barriers across it.

The shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road. The person with the bike had ridden through Rannoch Park but dismounted at the awkward bit linking the park to the main road (see #102853).

The shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road. I'm sure there is room for the mobile phone mast to have been positioned further back and out of the way of the cycleway.

A sign for a cycle route to Lanark, but without a destination. There is no longer a corresponding sign on the other side of the road, just signage for NCN74.

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

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

A major road crossing, with the direct route across the dual carriageway blocked by a barrier at the far side and no dropped kerb, and only a pedestrian crossing to the left to get across to the residential roads on the far side.

The spacious Great Western Road, with no space set aside for safe cycling.

Great Western Road - plenty of room but no protected space for cycling.

A gate at the end of the path from the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath at Great Western Road, with gaps both sides, but only access to the footway and westbound carriageway.

Linking the two halves of Crow Road for cycling would provide a local alternative to the hostile A739 dual carriageway, but motorists' needs appear to come first.

No room for cycle infrastructure on Great Western Road? There seems to be ample room for everything else.

The path to Strathclyde Business Park. See the comments at #99651 concerning the bridge ahead.

The path alongside this section of the A725. It ends at Strathclyde Business Park. Why not continue on to Strathclyde Country Park?

Do not attempt to cross the Moss Road expressway here.

You need a lot of patience to cross the road in Milton. Crossing the A82 from Milton Brae to get to the NCN7 cycle path.

Not sure what this is, but wasn't designed with bikes in mind & cars regularly demolish it. National cycle route 7. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/fLJMPbMu79

A toucan crossing across the dual carriageway connects Bothwell to the Raith Interchange walking and cycling provision. As it forms part of the junction traffic signal system, one side of motor traffic is stopped before the other.

The path from the Raith Interchange continues alongside the dual carriageway to Bothwell Bridge. There is literally nothing on this side of the road. A toucan crossing is provided for getting across to Bothwell.

The ramp from the cycle bridge over the Raith Interchange roundabout comes down in the No Man's Land between two dual carriageways, rather than on the side where Bothwell is. Users therefore have to cross four carriageways using toucan cros ... [more]

The shared-use footway changes sides across the A726 dual carriageway, but the crossing is only a pedestrian crossing and not a toucan crossing.

Pollok's road network is not cycle friendly. Will the Peat Road roundabout replacement plans be modified to rectify this?

A339 Hackwood Road looking north towards Basingstoke Location: , Basingstoke and Deane Borough (England, United Kingdom) on a surprisingly quiet afternoon

Crow Road has a local access road for a distance approaching Anniesland (and the listed Anniesland Tower), but no alternative to the main carraigeway through Jordanhill to the south.

The footways each side of the A8 Shieldhall Road are largely identical, but the council has decided that cycling is only allowed on one of them.

That Advance Stop Line is sure encouraging people to cycle!

No cycling facilities east of the Broomhouse roundabout, on the road to Uddingston, but the footway has been upgraded so pedestrians can take their chances with the traffic rather than use the stepped ramp footbridge.

Airbles Road is a busy dual carriageway, hostile to cycling, and yet not even a shared footway, despite room to widen the existing footway along much of the road, and many footway connections to adjacent residential streets.

A toucan crossing outside Airbles station. It does not appear to connect to any actual cycle infrastructure.

Earnock St has pedestrian access to Burnbank Road, but only away from Hamilton town centre. No provision for cycling.

Space for motoring, but only one bus at the bus stop at a time please! And no-one will want to walk to the bus stop from this direction. Someone did cycle along the dual carriageway just after I'd taken the photo, in all the proper cycling ... [more]

Space for motoring. Even the pedestrian infrastructure is pretty flaky, leading to people walking along the verge.

Across the Clyde Bridge.

Not good for cycling, not good for bussing.

Route (74) switches from the roadway of Ballantrae Road to the footway of Main Street. Lots of road markings.

A wider view of the toucan crossing shown in #89015 that leads only to the bus stop in the distance (beside the bus). The toucan crossings do not connect anywhere where it is legal to cycle other than the carriageway. The crossings are barr ... [more]

Despite the footway of the A89 not allowing cycling, and despite this crossing leading to nothing but a bus stop that does not have any bus services carrying bikes, a toucan crossing has been installed across Coatbridge Road. Does this come ... [more]

A messy join between old and new footways on Coatbridge Road.

On the right of the crash barrier the A89 dual carriageway and its single footway, to the left the currently shut path beneath the bridges southwards. Off to the left by the fence, the path to Rhindmuir Road.

I've noticed from my travels that a road in England would probably have a shared-use footway through here, but this is not the case in Scotland. The A89 expects cyclists to be on the carriageway, or go via Uddingston on the Sustrans route.

No attempt to provide for cycling on the A89 through Bargeddie. This is usually crazily busy during rush-hour.

The NCN75 crosses the Showcase Cinema access road on this zebra crossing without the usual Belisha Beacons or zig-zags.

The width restriction shown in #88851, and also showing the massive over-capacity of Edinburgh Road.

Quiet on a Sunday morning, but plenty of room for motoring under the Turner Road railway bridge in Colchester. The lane the cyclist is in is a bus lane.

Banned turn to Raigmore Estate for private motorists

NCN 7 shared-use footway alongside the A79 at Prestwick Airport. Just a buffer strip of coloured surfacing between the cycleway and the 40mph carriageway.

The end of the Bears Way interim route through Cluny Park, at a new toucan crossing across the A81 Maryhill Road dual carriageway. A shared-use footway connects to the entrance to Garscube Estate just off to the left, and continues as far a ... [more]

The shared-use footway alongside Maryhill Road ends at this new toucan crossing, from where the interim Bears Way route continues through Cluny Park. A "Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway" sign has been provided just beyond the crossing, so footwa ... [more]

Shared-use footway on Maryhill Road at the entrance to the Garscube Estate. A gap has been left in the central reservation for those turning right off of the main A81 dual carriageway. See also #85470.

Prudential Ride London - Surrey 100 Bromley-by-Bow, with Balfron Tower by Erno Goldfinger

Wide shared use cycleway - not at all pleasant being alongside this busy dual carriageway.

Shared-use footway along Maryhill Road dual carriageway, with sign for Milngavie. Until East Dunbartonshire Council finishes its Bears Way cycle route, you'll have to find your own way from the City Boundary.

Crossing the A4018 Dual Carriageway on regional route 16.

Rather than taking the obvious route to the Forth & Clyde Canal adjacent to Duntreath Avenue, the signage indicates a route via Strauss Avenue, although I wasn't sure where it went after that, possibly onto Kirkwood Avenue and the lifting b ... [more]

A single-stage toucan crossing across Rochdale Road dual carriageway, connecting the shared-use footway of NCN60 to the entrance to Queen's Park. This is about the best feature of NCN60 in this area, which is generally baffling in its extra ... [more]

@OfficialTfGM @ManCityCouncil How do you legally continue to ride towards Deansgate from here? https://t.co/sLmLMkxyhN

Southbound cyclists cross at split toucan. Dog-walker illustrates width of shared-use footway/cycleway.

Unusual double-humped footbridge across Lye Brae dual carriageway.

Electrical cabinet obstructing cycleway.

Cycleway alongside West Quay Road.

Cycleway gives way to footway and heads for strip between dual carriageway and service road.

A 'Cycles Only' sign and no room for pedestrians to get around the bus shelter.

The shared-use footway along West Quay Road

A shared-use footway obstructed by poles.

The cycle lane on Wester Hailes Road is partially obstructed by vegetation. The surface is also somewhat rough.

I don't know what they were thinking either! The cycle lane has a 'Give Way' at the far end of the bus stop.

Another confused sign for the "RR" cycle route. The red (westbound) direction is given as both straight ahead and U-turn back around the Clovenstone Roundabout.

We build a perfectly good cycle lane (on this Belfast quasi-motorway) and look.. NO-ONE'S USING IT. Ungrateful wee.. http://t.co/emWGga2872

The new Golden Bridge across the A9 dual carriageway and sliproads, on the outskirts of Inverness. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-22058146 Note the pedestrian walking along the sliproad on the far side (see #631 ... [more]

The cycle lanes on King Duncan's Road continue to the foot of the hill. The junction with the dual carriageway is restricted Left On Left Off.

The central reservation of the dual carriageway has been narrowed to allow the footway to be widened.

NCN810 crossing New Islington dual carriageway.

A pedestrian relying on drivers' good will rather than waiting for the pedestrian phase at crossing.

A group ride tries to negotiate its way across a staggered pedestrian crossing to cross the hostile road environment of Byrom Street.

A sign for NCN56 on Strand Street, with suspended bus lane.

A messy start to the cycle track on Western Esplanade, and particularly so for eastbound cyclists, who are directed onto the footway, and then left to choose between continuing along it and the carriageway via the central reservation gap.

A pedestrian lane on the A8 dual carriageway! No cycle lane. The speed limit here is 40mph.

Right turns to and from Pollokshaws Road at Christian Street are only for cycles

Cycle track from #55095 detours at road junction to go around the end of a traffic island

Cycle track takes a slight detour at road junction, see #55096

Cycle track crossing side road (foreground) and A59 dual carriageway (background with cyclist waiting on central reservation) at roundabout

Uncontrolled cycle crossing of A59 dual carriageway next to roundabout

Advice on best way around roundabout for cyclists

Sign post planted in cycle track on A565 dual carriageway

Why is the path around the roundabout not like this? Nice wide path alongside A565 dual carriageway, but narrow path next to hedge around the roundabout itself! (There is a shared-use sign at the other end at the side road.)

Abrupt end of cycle track, just where motorists will be looking the other way. Narrow footway continues into Formby to the left.
