Not a promising look for the Sighthill "cycling village". A toucan crossing with not even a bike's length between the kerb and the fence at the back of the footway.

The shared footway on Bunhouse Road has been rebuilt, but has not had its dividing line reinstated. The zebra crossing has a random section of tactile paving nearby with no obvious purpose.

A decent footway width on this Llandudno street.

The pop-up cycle lane resumes, but only once the road happens to get wider. I bumped the kerb to allow the couple walking towards me to avoid walking single file. A decent permanent installation would not look like this.

The line narrowing the shared footway over the motorway bridge, and a scooter user approaching.

The shared footway over the motorway bridge has a solid line marking near the railing. Is this because the railing is too low for a shared use footway/cycleway to be there?

The pop-up two-way cycleway, which only just began back at the Provanmill Road junction, ends, and gestures for cyclists to go onto the footway at the motorway bridge.

Although not itself part of the National Cycle Network, Sustrans has provided "This way to" stickers for NCN routes 7 and 75 for this section of signed cycle route which meets up with the NCN routes in Cessnock. This section is part of a 'c ... [more]

The Hillington Road footway link between the residential area of Hillington and the industrial estate is not signed as being anything other than an ordinary footway, but I remember it been shown as proposed for redetermination in part of a ... [more]

Approaching the end of the Hillington Park cycle route shared footway on Mossland Drive. The section beyond Huntly Road is a dead-end and does not connect with anything. It does not even have a dropped kerb from which to join the carriagewa ... [more]

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway blocked by two parked cars in one of the unused entrances that interrupts the cycleway.

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway blocked ahead, opposite a huge car storage facility. See also #170682.

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway crosses an unused entrance on Mossland Drive.

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway crosses to the other side of the road on the approach to the roundabout at Kelvin Avenue, then crosses back again.

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway crosses to the other side of the road on the approach to the roundabout at Kelvin Avenue, then crosses back again.

The proper Mossland Road cycle route has a dropped kerb to cross to the entrance on the opposite side, but the newer cycleway on the opposite side does not have a dropped kerb to allow access to it.

Footways on both sides of Mossland Road are signed as cycle routes, but the far side has the wrong type of sign for the type of cycle route. The footway then just ends in a bush. No dropped kerb to cross.

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway is on this side of the road, but the footway across the road now has a dividing line along it. Unlike #170674, the crossing is shared for both walking and cycling, and features a right-angle co ... [more]

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway is on this side of the road, but the footway across the road now has a dividing line along it. Separate cycle and pedestrian crossings have been provided.

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway is on this side of the road, but the footway across the road now has a dividing line along it.

The start of the Hillington Park cycle route, a shared footway along Mossland Road.

Fire Path in Balgonie Road, with no provision for through cycling. The sign has an unusual partial yellow background. Normally yellow backgrounds are used with a full border, to make the sign more conspicuous. No need for this nonsense! ... [more]

The footway of Hillington Road (at least part of which is shared-use) is loosing width to the bush, which will need cut back at some point. The toucan crossing connects Penilee and Hillington as part of a minimal signage quietway style c ... [more]

This footway was once upgraded to a shared-use cycle route.

The bridge between the bascule bridge and the Inchinnan Bridge only has a narrow footway on one side. The access to the new bridge must therefore be via some new path constructed off to the left.

The footway cycle lane from Maxwell Drive ends at the toucan crossing on St Andrew's Drive. The person cycling had come from the path from Maxwell Grove.

Car parking on the footway cycle lane in Maxwell Drive. The cycle lane leads to a toucan crossing across St Andrew's Drive and is two-way.

The cyclist avoids the pavement cycle lane that the driver up ahead is in the process of parking in.

A ramp has been provided behind the bus stop, in addition to steps, to connect from Thornliebank Road up to Cartcraigs Road. (This does not form part of the cycle route, but could be used for connections to and from it.)

I came around the corner from Barrhead Road into Pollokshaws Road to find the footway there is now shared-use. There was no obvious start to this.

The western footway of Dumbreck Road over the railway and motorway bridges here is now shared-use. Although the footway is only slightly wider, various permanent clutter has been removed such as a cabinet and sign poles.

The funding sign for the Dumbreck Road/Mosspark Boulevard junction improvements, that included a staggered toucan crossing and footway upgrade to shared-use. This project linked up the Haggs Road/Dumbreck Road shared footway and NCN7/75 ... [more]

The western footway of Dumbreck Road is now shared-use as far as the Mosspark Boulevard junction, although the only sign to confirm this appears to be the low-level green sign seen on the railings in the background.

The meeting point of Macfarlane Road and Milngavie Road, which includes a shared footway link between the northern part of Macfarlane Road and Killermont Road. On the right, a busy road to Canniesburn Toll.

Installation work on a protected cycle lane in Royston Road. Alterations appear to have been made.

After the bridge, the footway reverts to the east side of the gated section of Bogside Road.

The footway on the gated road changes sides at the bridge, and the remains of Bogside Road disappear into the housing development in the distance.

As with #169532, the first opportunity to leave the presumably shared footway (there are no signs to confirm this) is beyond the roundabout where a dropped kerb crossing has been provided.

The first opportunity to leave the presumably shared footway from the toucan crossings at the motorway junction is up beyond the roundabout at the housing on the left (see #169533).

A toucan crossing across the Clydeside Expressway sliproad, but not across Finnieston Street. Nothing to say any footway is legal for cycling. The toucan crossing is one of a chain of toucan crossings leading to the path to Minerva Street.

Continuous footway = good. Ridiculous kerb transition at the junction = dangerous. This will seriously hurt somebody turning across it.

First 'Copenhagen crossing' type junction (Footway/cycleway continuous, without kerbs, over side-road) in Cambridge

That moment when you stop to take a photo and there's a cyclist approaching on the narrow shared footway and a bus approaching on the adjacent busway, before there's time to get the camera ready. All I could do was to move into the side.

New pavement on #BrigadeRoad is almost ready! 🤯 Work started just about 5 weeks ago. https://t.co/FLy2Kc4czb

An Italian Job on Mill Road, plenty of outrageous driving through pedestrian areas in that movie! https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Italian_Job

Great Shelford Broken bollard was reported at: https://highwaysreporting.cambridgeshire.gov.uk?id=00358336 Update 2021 Feb 01: Received notification that the bollard will be fixed within the next three months.

This is what my local council calls a cycling path! Might be better to rename it an obstacle course! https://t.co/AI2TRxAvvI

Has anyone @BuryCouncil considered how these these repeated kerbs / car driveway access arrangements (eg St Marys Rd, Prestwich) are a real barrier to disabled people, ppl with V small kids etc? @cllralanquinn @LBBuryS @pootlers @walkridepw ... [more]

Mock-up of a idea to improve access to the footway cycle parking. Motor vehicles often park right up or overhang the buildout and this creates problems of access to our front door as these other photos show: #6501 and #106944. The ram ... [more]

New link?

The shared-use footway on Archerhill Road crosses sides, from the wide footway to the narrow footway with a campervan parked on it, right at the end of the zig-zags for the toucan crossing and next to a junction.

Car parking by a professional driver on the shared-use footway on Archerhill Road.

Regular, not sporadic, enforcement of dbl yellows is needed on Spean St. This shared footway/cycle path is blocked daily by cars, SUVs, vans and lorries. 21 vehicles today. Zero space for people to social distance either. @GlasgowCC ple ... [more]

LÔN ADDA cycle route towards Bangor Station

LÔN ADDA cycle route on the shared use footway here.

The Queensway footway changes from asphalt to slabs, and shimmies to the side slightly. The drainage is poor.

The Queensway footway resumes at Falkland Drive.

The Seven Lochs Trail turns from the A752 into Drumpellier Country Park. The signs here make no mention of the Seven Lochs Trail. There is a dropped kerb here, but it is partly blocked by a mangled railing installed across it.

The footway of the A752 was supposed to be upgraded to be part of NCN route 755 south of Gartcosh, but this has still to happen. However, it is now part of the Seven Lochs Trail and still has obstructions like this boundary sign post.

Some sort of ramp between the roadway and the footway, then a footway crossing on the approach to the station access. There's another of these ramps at #112866.

A roundabout where a bend would have sufficed. At least the previous roundabout has imminent plans for actual roads leading off to a new housing development.

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.

There's nothing to indicate whether the footway that came from the toucan crossings back at the motorway junction is shared-use or not. In any case, anyone using the footway has a particularly indirect route to the station. At this roundabo ... [more]

Turn left for Hebble Trail and Halifax town centre 2 miles. Road from the top deck of the Huddersfield to Halifax bus.

Although there are no signs on this section, this footway joins together two toucan crossings so can probably be considered shared-use. The roundabout on this side of the motorway has been considerably enlarged.

A toucan crossing at Saughs Avenue. There is no indication whether or not the shared footways continue beyond the crossing up Saughs Avenue.

The end of the shared footway on Saughs Avenue. But since there is a shared footway across the toucan crossing, there is really no need for the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign. However, the shared footway is far too narrow.

The shared footway between Saughs Road and Robroyston Road. It continues as far as the Nova Business Park.

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

The shared-use sign seen in #112689 is single-sided, and there is only a dropped kerb crossing on the southwest and southeast sides of the roundabout, not the northeast side.

A shared-use footway on Robroyston Park outside the Nova Business Park.

No crossing from the exit from Robroyston Park to the shared footway on the east side of Robroyston Park. The footway on the near side is not shared-use.

Apparently this narrow footway is shared-use!

The shared cycleway on Park Grange Road looking suspiciously like an ordinary footway, and certainly no wider than an ordinary footway.

Route signs at Spring Lane. The route to the left along Spring Lane appeared to go right through the tramstop platform.

An overrun area for U-turning vehicles on new Derek Dooley Way gyratory layout, but judging from the tyre marks on the footway, even this is insufficient.

Cycle lanes on Shalesmoor, and damage to the footway consistent with pavement parking.

The lack of a proper dropped kerb at the end of the Cobweb Bridge at #112458 encourages cyclists to use the footway in Sussex Street.

A cycleway on the footway at the huge Park Square roundabout, partly obstructed by temporary signs for roadworks.

Cycleway on the footway at the huge Park Square roundabout.

Footway cycleways routinely used for car parking at Leverndale Hospital, including more tyre tracks seen in the frost.

Footway cycle markings near Leverndale Hospital.

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.

The footway markings on Leverndale Road end into an Advance Stop Line at the Crookston Road junction. There is no cycle provision on the main road. If there is moving traffic, this layout means cyclists waiting until the lights turn red ... [more]
