The (summer only) free Govan Ferry makes its way across the River Clyde to the Water Row pontoon. It can carry bikes, and details can be found at http://www.getintogovan.com/visit/

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.

A protected cycle lane along Pearce Lane, between Pearce Street and Water Row.

The end of the Burleigh Street contraflow cycle track currently under construction. The route to Water Row is via Pearce Street.

Roadworks in Burleigh Street to create a contraflow cycle track and repave the footways.

@RantyHighwayman @peterwalker99 Though this is good design, but it’s in back street of Govan, Glasgow... almost as cyclists don’t ever shop or stop for coffee! https://t.co/qzxO60mslu

The approach to the Clyde Tunnel cycle tunnel entrance from Holmfauld Place, with no dropped kerb for anyone that missed the dropped kerb in #99461.

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.

A path connecting to the riverside path in Govan.

The walkway alongside the River Clyde in Govan ends in a dead-end. This is the last junction to access the local road network.

A riverside walkway in Govan, with the Riverside Museum across the other side. In summer a free ferry operates across the river.

Cycle parking at the end of Burleigh Street in Govan, plus a burnt out litter bin and a cabinet with its door falling off, all next to a statue. Glasgow City Council intends to install a contraflow cycle lane along this street. Good luck ... [more]

The road layout at the Govan Road/Golspie St junction due to the Fastlink busway. Not particularly cycle friendly.

The final evidence I could see of the cycle route along Summertown Road. It just vanishes after here.

On-road provision on Summertown Road.

The Summertown Road cycle route leaves the shared footway for the carriageway. Spot the clues.

And so we get to Summertown Road with a blind corner to start with. It sets the tone! See also #99174.

An obstacle course of poles and a random channel snaking its way across the surface. Not good enough!

Behind me is a shared-use footway sign. Across the junction and to the right is an "End of Cycle Route" sign. Are they related? Is this shared-use footway nothing to do with the one a little distance along Govan Road at #99434? But still th ... [more]

The footway across the far side of the junction is shared use, but the crossing is for pedestrians only. But the previous shared-use sign was back at #99434. Is this one continuous route or two unrelated shared-use footways? The drainage ... [more]

A funders' sign for whatever aspect of this road layout they wish to trumpet about. Fastlink maybe or the cycle route? There isn't any sign to say whether or not the footway here is shared use. There was a sign at #99434 and there's one jus ... [more]

The Govan Road shared-use footway crosses sides here, although there is only the presence of a toucan crossing as a clue. As always, the asphalt does not provide a direct route to the crossing, and as the wear on the grass shows people are ... [more]

The Govan Road toucan crossing leads straight into a wonky lamppost on Pacific Drive. The footways straights ahead and to the right are both shared use.

The shared-use footway on Govan Road crosses sides at the split toucan crossing at the Pacific Drive junction.

Glasgow's newest cycle project.

Professionally driven - NOT!

Vehicle parking on the footway appears to be a problem here. The shared use footway crosses to the other side of Summertown Road here, not that you'd notice.

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.

A single parking stand provided in shopping area near the Langlands Cycle Path, and no dropped kerb for cyclists heading to and from the path

The end of the Langlands Cycle Path in Govan. It doesn't continue across the other side, nor is the crossing even a Toucan

The new Langlands Cycle Path features pieces of art incorporated in the surface next to the cycleway

Start of the Langlands Cycle Path, outside Elderpark Library, rebuilt from #36125. Note the infill tar put up against the badly-installed dropped kerb!
