The shared footway outside the Alison Lea Medical Centre. I don't know who thought that this would be an adequate design.

Footway parking partially on the shared footway outside the Alison Lea Medical Centre. Google Streetview shows a greater degree of obstruction in its image.

The end of the Calderwood Road section of the cycle route to Brancumhall, and some footway parking outside the Alison Lea Medical Centre.

The widened footway on this side of Calderwood Road ends, but not before it has been obstructed by a control cabinet for the toucan crossing.

The Calderwood Road shared footway switches sides at the toucan crossing ahead.

The Calderwood Road shared footway, with a bus shop, footway parking, and a pinch-point crossing on the road across to a school.

Give way at Capelrig Drive, with space for a waiting car.

Give way at the schools entrance.

Both paths have cycle signs on them, so possibly could divert if a heavily laden bus pulls up and starts unloading, but otherwise the left path goes directly to the school and the right is for following Calderwood Road.

Cross Carlyle Drive behind a waiting car.

Give way to drivers exiting the Whitemoss Recreation Area - loss of priority.

Options to pass in front of or behind the bus shelter, depending on bus passenger activity.

Limited sight lines at the St Leonards Road traffic lights on the Calderwood Road shared footway.

No evidence that this section of footway on Whitemoss Avenue is a cycleway. It's also rather busy and cluttered.

No widening of this narrow footway took place to convert it into the Clydebank North Circular Link cycleway. Pathetic!

Obstructive pavement parking on the shared-use footway on Dalsholm Road between the Garscube Estate path and the Kelvin Walkway, forcing riders onto the crumbling carriageway. There is a free car park at the top of the hill in the backgroun ... [more]

A poor end to the footway from The Antonine Road at the Goals access road, part of the Drumchapel Way signed walking route.

A poor quality shared-use footway on Halgreen Avenue. The other side of the road doesn't even have a footway, even though it is outside a school!

The end of the widened footway and transition onto an on-road painted cycle lane along Alderman Road.

Probably the start of the cycleway alluded to in #107051.

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]

A Cycle Quietway has been signed through Knightswood, but doesn't use the newly widened and converted shared-use footway on Dyke Road.

Glasgow's joined up infra as it transitions from segregated to 'shared with pedestrians'. A pole and a parked van. Nice. https://t.co/I1zYIvWeLB

Harvest Way

Cycling home with Flora along Pollokshaws Road. Traffic management for the shared path resurfacing better cycle provision than path itself! Buy hey, 6 lanes for motors obviously essential https://t.co/Whhbubr5SC

Walking route between Rosslare railway station and ferry port.

No signs for the HArTT cycle route at the busy Redding Road Roundabout, nor any suggestion that the footway may be shared use. Plenty of space, but just an ordinary narrow footway.

No dropped kerb for the HArTT cycle route at the end of the path, a very narrow footway, and a busy road to cross. See #103067 for the view the other way.

The Humber Road cycling improvements are coming along in Beeston. What do people think? @broxtowebc @D2N2GrowthHub @Anna_Soubry https://t.co/rMweFggKPm "Beware of opening car doors" (and signs on the cycleway).

The uncontrolled pedestrian crossing across the A905 leads to the Inchyra Road shared-use footway. Presumably anyone cycling over that painted 'END' has to turn left with the traffic, onto the carriageway leading back to Inchyra Road.

A triple uncontrolled crossing across the A905 carriageways for pedestrians at Cadgers Brae Roundabout, across to the Inchyra Road shared use footway which runs between Rannoch Park and Grangemouth oil refinery.

A poor uncontrolled pedestrian crossing across the M9 on-ramp at the Cadgers Brae Roundabout. A gap in the cycle network between Falkirk and Grangemouth.

The A9 approaching the Cadgers Brae Roundabout. A gap in the cycle network between Falkirk and Grangemouth. A shared-use path commences just after the roundabout.

A footway alongside the A9 at Beancross. A gap in the cycle network between Falkirk and Grangemouth.

"CYCLISTS DONT RIDE ON PAVEMENTS Go safe on our roads it's everyone's responsibility" And a pretty narrow footway it is too.

According to Network Rail, the railway bridge on Muirhead Road has been "rebuilt stronger and wider to enable two-way traffic, cycle route and pedestrian footpath". I don't see a cycle route. https://www.networkrailmediacentre.co.uk/news ... [more]

The towpath on the Forth & Clyde Canal merges into the footway of the adjacent road at Lock 16. Signage includes directions to the Union Canal, although the route is just along the main road.

If the footway is narrow, of course the roadworks will block the full width.

The Westburn Avenue shared-use footway passes a caged pedestrian crossing.

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 Victoria Park Drive South, and signage for local destinations.

There are a lot of construction markings on the eastern side at Happendon Services. Will the cycle route actually benefit from an upgraded facility or will there just be sliproads to cross?

The cycle route through and beyond the motorway junction is a shared footway. There is a lot of dirt from the carriageway affecting the cycleway.

Compared to the shared footway on other side of the road, the end of the purpose built cycleway looks over-engineered. It could also do with a sweep.

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.

I genuinely thought they would widen this extremely narrow footway as part of the Knightswood cycle route works, but no. See also #99502. At this point the shared-use footway on Dyke Road changes into a cycleway formed by orcas.

A blind corner on the Dyke Road shared-use footway. See also https://twitter.com/CalumCook91/status/1022590507606831106

Unlike the provision for crossing to Abbotsford Business Park, where left and right turns are catered for instead of forced right-angled turns, the path to Hayfield is made difficult to use with a chicane barrier.

Low hanging branches above the A9 shared-use footway.

The shared footway alongside the A9, with a warning for drivers of the crossing up ahead.

The turnoff from the A9 shared footway for the ramp down to the Forth & Clyde Canal, including a marker post for the HArTT cycle route.

A sign warning of the path junction up ahead. There's another beyond the junction facing the wrong way.

A sign warning of a path joining from the right. It's more of a dirt path than an actual cycle track.

A metal barrier and a parked Falkirk Council van blocking the shared footway/cycleway at the A9 roundabout.

A safe route linking Bog Road to Callendar Boulevard along Callendar Road would provide a direct route between the Helix and Callendar Park. Even upgrading the footway to shared-use and putting in a crossing would probably suffice.

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 utilities work on Old Dumbarton Road fail to take any account of the cycle route which crosses from one footway to the other at this point.

Utilities work on the shared-use footway on Old Dumbarton Road (lasting several weeks) and no account taking of cycling.

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

An update on #99502, double white lines have been added. Note the two on bikes on the footway across the other side of the road.

This just doesn't look good at all.

A single uncontrolled sliproad crossing with 'Cyclists Dismount' signs (see #51057) has been replaced with two uncontrolled sliproad crossings, without signs. No attempt to line up the footway with the crossings.

Another set of pedestrian crossings to revert to the west side of the A8 Eurocentral junction, since there is no footway around the western side of the roundabout anymore.

As with #100118, the crossing of the A8 is a pedestrian crossing.

Despite the toucan crossing at #100117, all of the other crossings at the A8 Eurocentral junction are pedestrian crossings. It's almost as if they have forgotten that this is/was a shared use route.

No signs to say this is a shared-use footway, but according to my map from the council, this is where Cumbernauld Cycle Network routes 4 and 4a are to be found. The roundabout appears to be built on a different plane from the rest of the ... [more]

"Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway" but no dropped kerb to enable that. Pathetic!

If you can't read the sign next to the bridge, and don't know which side of this barrier to pass, no worries - it's pointing the wrong way anyway! See also #97669 and #99654.

A shared-use sign on Kirkshaws Road. I did check and there was no evidence as to whether the shared-use footway continued further or where it might end.

The shared-use footway alongside the A725 into Coatbridge, with some users.

The shared-use path shares the bridge over the A8 dual carriageway with the A725.

If you are coming from Bellshill, this is the first sign to say this footway is shared-use.

A new cycle route under construction on Dyke Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. This was the last sign of work I saw heading down Dyke Road. Perhaps the footway will get widened. Update at #100297 and #101274.

A new cycle route under construction on Dyke Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. I imagine this isn't finished.

A new cycle route under construction on Dyke Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. A shared footway is going in here, and some education of the locals on the purpose of the shared footway appears to be necessary.

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]

A new cycle route on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The view from the rear of the bus shelter in #99493.

A new cycle route on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. Quite why a proper bus stop bypass wasn't installed here I don't know. The bus shelter should be moved closer to the boarder and the segregated cycle tr ... [more]

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. I figure this probably isn't finished, but all the surface work appears to be done and only the lining remains to be finished. However, what alignmen ... [more]

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The purpose of the shared footway appears to be lost on the locals.

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The approach to the toucan crossing appears to be quite messy. I'm not sure why the white lines extend around each corner into the side roads. Maybe thi ... [more]

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. Looking back towards the toucan crossing in #99488.

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The route crosses sides here at this new toucan crossing. Maybe they'll put in some cycle parking for the shops before they are finished. Quite a sho ... [more]

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park.

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 shared use sign (see #65297) for the Broomielaw footway has been removed and signs now direct cyclists to the Clyde Walkway. But old habits die hard.

Could the route alignment be any worse? How about a cycle crossing straight across to the new path (see #93791) at the Village development rather than the split toucan?

If you're expecting signs for NCN 7 or 75, they are visible on the right.

The route sign directs cyclists up a flight of steps at the new eatery, where once there was a path into the park (see #29467). This is not good enough!

Despite the footway of residential Old Polmadie Road being designated as shared-use (see #98669), the narrow footway of the busy New Rutherglen Road has not. However, this non-standard route signage seems to assume it has been. A new eat ... [more]

The dropped kerb (see #29466) for accessing the M74 junction shared-use footway has inexplicably been removed! Despite the position of the sign on the left, the footway of New Rutherglen Road eastwards is not for cycling.

Footway cycle route crosses here onto the Foss Islands Cycle Route on York's Orbital Cycle route.

Pavement cycleway rejected by this shopper! On the orbital cycle route around York.

This footway at Springburn Road appears to be part of the cycle route to Springburn, but there is a complete lack of shared-use signage. It also suffers from pavement car parking (see Streetview) on weekdays.

Rollercoaster footways, undulating up and down. They had complete freedom of design and lots of space, and yet they managed to build the footway in the worst possible way!

Active travellers on foot and bike, your leafy shared use path of safety must be rendered useless cos the three lanes of important motorists have to be informed. @CalumCook91 @GoBikeGlasgow https://t.co/rMPWuWQsBb

The Fastlink busway was built without any dropped kerbs outside the Festival Park gate, hindering cycle access between the Science Centre and Festival Park. The footway here is to be converted to shared use.
