Sighthill regeneration continues. From the width of this path, and the toucan crossings at the junction, it appears it may be a shared-use path in place of the Glasgow to Cumbernauld cycle route path that used to be here.

Still plenty to do to connect up the replacement bridge across the M8 motorway between Townhead and Sighthill.

The pop-up two-way cycle lane on Royston Road. approaching the Broomfield Road junction. The cycle signals are on green during both general traffic phases, so any turns from the cycleway are not protected.

The pop-up two-way cycle lane on Royston Road approaching the Broomfield Road junction. Note that the cycle traffic signals are green at the same time as traffic is exiting Broomfield Road. The cycle lights were green during both general tr ... [more]

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.

More debris collecting around the bus stop boarder, but correct cycleway tactiles, on Royston Road.

The end of the pop-up two-way cycle lane on Royston Road. The cycle route continues around the corner to the right.

Start of the pop-up two-way cycle lane on Royston Road.

Car parking still taking place in the Provanmill Road cycle lane, despite the armadillos. Double yellow lines have not been provided, making it difficult for the council's enforcement officers to do anything.

The build up of mud around the bus boarder after flooding, such as seen in #169649.

Debris lying in the Provanmill Road cycle lane.

The partly protected cycle lane in Provanmill Road is slightly wider than the advisory cycle lane it replaced. The pedestrian crossing is not working.

The end of the two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road. It just ends.

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road, at a bus stop boarder. Again, mud has accumulated at the bottom of the ramp, due to water running down the hill.

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road. Each build-out across the cycle lane on the hill has attracted accumulations of mud and other debris. Unlike the bus boarders, there was no indication of priority for pedestrians crossing the cycle ... [more]

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road. The previous with-flow lanes have been removed, the centre line repositioned, and one side of the road reallocated for the protected cycle lane.

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road, with a bus stop boarder. Again, the ramps are sharp and slowing down is good advice. The tactiles are of the correct type.

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road. The red areas across the road are the remains of the old with-flow cycle lanes.

A poor surface on the path the Glasgow to Cumbernauld cycle route is signed along in Glenconner Park. With a little bit of work it could even be quite nice, although the person cycling along the footway of Royston Road in the background wou ... [more]

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

The protected cycle lane in Royston Road appears to direct cyclists into the kerb without warning. Further along it became apparent that installation work was still on-going.

A protected cycle lane has appeared on Royston Road, but further along it became apparent that work had not been completed.

A filter lane removed and replaced by a protected cycle lane, on Provanmill Road at Royston Road.

A drainage problem at a bus boarder in the now protected Provanmill Road cycle lane, seen during a shower. An aftermath of such flooding is seen in #171650.

Although armadillos have been provided on one side of this section of Provanmill Road, this side has been left much as before, with the cycle lane outside of the parking layby and now with a narrow buffer zone.

The end of the protected section of cycle lane on Cumbernauld Road, where the Cumbernauld to Glasgow cycle route turns right onto Provanmill Road. The sign is of a non-standard pattern. The carriageway goes from one to three lanes for mo ... [more]

The Cumbernauld Road cycle lane, now protected with armadillos.

The start of the protected section of cycle lane on Cumbernauld Road. However, the motorists have decided to park in the bus layby instead.

A damaged route sign for the cycle route to the City Centre, but the route is closed off due to the Sighthill regeneration project a short distance away.

This fencing has been obstructing the access to the Sighthill motorway foot and cycle bridge for some time, even though the bridge is for now still open. The fencing appears to be being used to create nothing more than a contractor's parkin ... [more]

A route sign for the spur from the Glasgow-Cumbernauld cycle route to the Colleges cycle route facing the wrong way. In the background, the anonymous ramp to the North Hanover Street shared footway (see also #98888).

With a new building next door, the link between the North Hanover Street shared footway and St Mungo Avenue has had its strange half step (see #31794) removed and now is wholly ramp. However, all of the signage has disappeared so it is now ... [more]

Protected signs on path closed for Sighthill's redevelopment (the original Glasgow-Cumbernauld cycle route), and a reopened path to Baird Street.

The barriers on the Springburn Expressway footbridge remain in place. Sighthill seen during redevelopment, with some old and new buildings visible, and off to the right, reinstated access from the footbridge to Pinkston Drive.

A route sign for the Cumbernauld route pointing the wrong way.

What is the point of advisory cycle lanes? Cumbernauld Rd today, both sides covered in parked cars @AnnaLangside @GlasgowCC @policescotland https://t.co/ze1547or7Z

Routes through what was Sighthill Park closed due to redevelopment, and the bridge over the motorway is getting replaced at some point too. More information at www.glasgow.gov.uk/sighthill

Damage to the cycle path at Sighthill, caused by tree roots, making this half of the path unusable.

Since the cycle route is closed for the next 3 years while Sighthill is redeveloped, it might be an idea to take down or cover up this sign. The park is no more, so take those signs away at the same time.

An 'End of Route' sign, presumably for Cumbernauld cycle route 2, and signs with destinations facing across the road and towards a hedge for going towards the town centre. The Cumbernauld to Glasgow cycle route continues along the main r ... [more]

Route signs on the far side of the junction, not really visible on the approach when turning decision needs to be made on a main road. The sign for route 4 is only visible for someone coming from the Condorrat Ring Road, not from Mollins ... [more]

Exit from Glenconner Park, with sign for Cumbernauld cycle route. There used to be cycle lanes on Royston Road at this point, but they disappeared when the road was resurfaced.

Cycle lanes on Royston Road, but no Advance Stop Lines

The point where the Cumbernauld to Glasgow cycle route joins the redetermined footway (to the right only) of North Hanover Street. Not only do cyclists have to watch out for the step half way down the ramp, but the cycle route signs, on a s ... [more]
