How is anyone meant to read this sign on the approach to the junction?

The Benalder Street/Argyle Street crossing still awaits commissioning, and signage for former car parking spaces awaits removal. New works have started on the Snow Bridge across the junction, making access trickier.

A randomly pointing cycle route sign, no road markings, and a car parked on a marked tactile crossing.

No further progress on reinstating the road markings at the newly rebuilt Old Dumbarton Road/Ferry Road/Benalder Street junction. All of the pedestrians visible are walking on the cycle track and not the narrow footway.

The cycle traffic signals for the Bunhouse Road/Argyle Street crossing still await commissioning.

Neighbours in #Islington please be aware the top end of Noel Road is closed due to a car having been driven into a house. @CycleIslington I hope nobody was hurt 🙏 https://t.co/DUU2YPskcO

Not much evidence of there being a COP26 diversion route around this corner.

A parked van blocking access to the new cycleway on Benalder Street.

Looking for further diversion signs to continue from #175406, but none were visible.

"Diversion cyclists dismount" on Waterloo Street. No explanation as to where the diversion leads (other than an NCN7 emblem), or any obvious reason why cyclists might need to dismount. There were no further signs to be seen further along th ... [more]

The cycle route diversion sign on the left-hand side of the road is not particularly noticable from the West City Way cycleway.

No Left Turn from Blythswood Street into the Waterloo Street two-way cycle track.

Back to business as usual with the traffic racing round the Benalder Street/Old Dumbarton Road junction.

The Benalder Street cycleway has now been connected to the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway, with the installation of the raised crossing. The old lamppost seen in #174295 has been removed.

The Old Dumbarton Road cycleway has now been cleared of obstructions at the Ferry Road junction. The raised crossing has been installed and awaits lining. Some bollards might be in order too.

Unusably bad soft segregation has been put in on Argyle Street for the COP26 diversion route, and is dangerous for various reasons, including lorry parking right up to the pedestrian crossing point blocking sight lines. See also #175137.

Soft segregation has been put in on Argyle Street for the COP26 diversion route, but is of such poor quality that it is worse than useless. See also #175139.

"Park only in marked bays" on Kelvin Way.

It was interesting watching (from the other side of the junction) the differing strategies employed by drivers when confronted with traffic signals where both the red lights were faulty. The impatient ones assumed wrongly that the signals f ... [more]

The closure at the eastern end of Overnewton Street does not provide for through cycling, the cycle parking stands are past their best, and the driver on Haugh Road has no respect for the road markings.

The protracted roadworks to rebuild and extend the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway continue. The https://www.roadworksscotland.org/ website said the road closure to create the raised junction would have started by 7 October and Get Ready Glasgo ... [more]

The cycle off-slip at Finnieston Street allows cyclists to legally leave the carriageway and use the toucan crossing across Lancefield Quay to get to the National Cycle Network route 75, even when the traffic signals are on red. The similar ... [more]

The one remaining cycle off-slip at the Finnieston Street/Clyde Arc junction. The one at #173654 has been blocked off with a railing.

Freshly painted Advance Stop Lines at Anderston Cross, but none at the second stop lines under the motorway bridge.

Waiting on red.

The Old Dumbarton Road cycle track is far from complete, and the raised crossings further along still haven't been started. This is on the COP26 diversion route.

A new section of cycle track at West Street, showing junction with Clyde Place cycle track. See #169987 for view in opposite direction.

The start of the Benalder Street cycle track at the Castle Street junction. There is a high kerb across the other end (see #174295).

The junction of Sawmill Road and South Street. NCN7 is visible on the footway to the right.

The Sawmill Road junction used to have the cycle path on a former railway bridge over the top of the road, but now that has been demolished, the cycle route is on the South Street shared footway to the right. The footway on this side res ... [more]

The building of the Old Dumbarton Road cycle track continues at the Benalder Street/Ferry Road junction, and shows no sign of being complete in time for the COP26 diversion route coming this way. There is a high kerb at the end of the cycle ... [more]

Junction on NCN7 for Partick to the left and City Centre to the right. I'm not so sure about Kelvingrove Park being to the left, since that way is just along the main road. Head right and leave NCN7 at Ferry Road for the West City Way route ... [more]

Van parking in the cycle lane on Crow Road at Broomhill Cross. Location: Broomhill, Glasgow (Scotland, United Kingdom)

Tiverton Drive meets Hinckley Road, Nuneaton

The lack of a connection from James Watt Street to the riverside NCN75 path and the Tradeston Bridge (visible background left) continues to make this a difficult place to cycle. A gap through the kerb and railing on the far side of the junc ... [more]

There is no easy way to get to the start of the Sauchiehall Street cycleway at Charing Cross. From this painted lane a left turn into the motorway sliproad is required to get to the dropped kerb at the toucan crossing. There is nothing to m ... [more]

I noticed this dropped kerb at the Advance Stop Line box and investigated whether it was installed to aid cycling from St George's Road to the toucan crossing chain through the junction, but no, it was left over from a pedestrian crossing t ... [more]

The ironwork at the Hill Street junction in Cambridge Street is rather uneven, and is directly in the cycle lane with little option to avoid if someone happens to be coming the other way. The bollard also looks rather beaten up.

The road markings here are a mess, with hatching across the contraflow cycle lane, and no indication of priorities. There is, however, a Give Way sign facing traffic exiting South Portland Street. There is also a No Through Road sign bel ... [more]

The signs here state that a left turn is mandatory, but there is a contraflow cycle lane so cycles can turn right.

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.

The ramp seen in #172741 leads users over a kerb when joining the Garscube Road cycleway.

The tie-in between the bottom of the new ramp down from the Forth and Clyde Canal to Garscube Road is poor. A kerb blocks the entrance to the ramp from Firhill Road and a ramp has been provided facing Firhill Road but this appears to be for ... [more]

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

Despite the provision of a sign proudly pointing this way, there is still no dropped kerb to allow cyclists proper smooth access onto the carriageway of Springburn Way from the toucan crossing across Atlas Road. Not pictured, but while I ... [more]

A Nextbike hire station has been added to Shields Road at the start of the Southwest City Way.

The Garscube Road cycle track is now open for business! Although the elephants feet crossing indicates to cross to Hinshaw Street, there are no turning restrictions, so it is possible to also continue along Garscube Road or head up Firhi ... [more]

The Garscube Road cycle track is now open for business!

Shows new raised-table junction (Canterbury St/Histon Rd) with continuous kerb along Histon Road. Local resident felt the junction was 'invisible' (and therefore dangerous).

[UPDATE 25.11.22: More of the cavities have been filled. CYC said the damage was to have been repaired end Oct 2021 but there was no tarmac to be had.] [Image taken 28.6.21] Duncombe Place/Museum Street/Blake Street/St Leonard's Place junct ... [more]

No right turns from Dumbreck Road into Paisley Road West, just like the opposite side of the junction at #170596.

The pedestrian crossings form part of the original Glasgow to Paisley cycle route, opened by Cllr Charlie Gordon back in 1993. This section is part of one of the many 'Cyclists Dismount' sections, and it remains so to this day. Nowadays, ... [more]

The sign back at #170595 should have warned that this left turn is directly onto the M8 motorway.

No right turns from Broomloan Road onto Paisley Road West, principally to keep the car traffic moving faster.

The sign should really mention that motorway regulations begin immediately on the road with the motorway numbers all in brackets. This is a sliproad directly onto the eastbound M8 motorway, see #170597.

Is this still the most appropriate layout for this junction, given the change of priorities and connectivity at the other nearby junctions in recent years?

Update. On 27.6.21 I saw most of the holes had been filled though not the first one (see: #171156) inside the orange markings - so cyclists still have to look down and pick their way through in the three directions you can turn here. [Image ... [more]

Parking on the footway, driving in the hatching. The rules of the road have broken down. Just beyond the van is a dropped kerb, before the traffic signals, that allows access to the footway in order to use the toucan crossing across to t ... [more]

No provision for cycling through the closure of Victoria Park Drive South at Westland Drive. A dropped kerb and toucan crossings at the junction signals would probably suffice.

The Hinshaw Street cycleway at the Maltbarns Street junction. It is not clear what the priorities at the junction might be, but in practice traffic volumes are generally low.

The end of the Hinshaw Street cycleway at the Maltbarns Street junction. The nib on the far side of the junction has a dropped kerb at the far side, if continuing along Hinshaw Street. The tactile strip is some new adhesive type I'd not see ... [more]

This is pretty much the full length of the Hinshaw Street cycleway. It ends at the Maltbarns Street junction.

A short section of cycleway in Hinshaw Street feeds into the cycleway in Garscube Road.

The start of the Garscube Road cycleway, seen coming from the Queens Cross direction. Next time I'll try going between the first and second bollards rather than the second and third which was quite tight.

The end of the Garscube Road cycleway, but there is a short length of cycleway to the left in Hinshaw Street. Construction is underway to the right, of a new ramp for access to the Forth & Clyde Canal. See update at #171178.

The Garscube Road cycle track at the entrance to the Oakbank Trading Estate. There is a flashing LED cycle sign, but this one didn't light up, unlike one further south.

One day I'll come along here and it will be open. There's a continuous cycle track around the corner into Possil Road which continues as far as Baird's Brae. A short connection has been built in St George's Road, which will later be extende ... [more]

The Garscube Road cycleway still unopened at Possil Road. See update at #171177.

A cycle hire station in Pollokshields on Maxwell Drive/St Andrew's Drive, and a painted footway cycle lane leading to a toucan crossing to the right.

A short cycle lane approaching traffic signals on St Andrew's Drive.

A dropped kerb, possibly to allow cycling through the road closure in Dalziel Drive at St Andrew's Drive.The dropped kerb on the other side is to the right of the bin.

The Dumbreck Road/St Andrew's Drive/Titwood Road/Haggs Road junction outside Pollok Country Park. No sign of the proposed pop-up cycle route on St Andrew's Drive yet.

Pavement parking in Cogan Road, outside a huge free car park at the retail park. The Advance Stop Line is the only concession to cycling on this road.

Torridon Avenue closed to motor traffic at its junction with Dumbreck Road, with cycles exempted and gaps provided.

Torridon Avenue is closed to motor traffic at its junction with Dumbreck Road, with cycles exempted and gaps provided.

The cycle traffic signals at Dargarvel Avenue, at the Dumbreck Road/Dumbreck Avenue junction. The junction also has toucan crossings around two sides. The shapes of the gaps do not make it easy to make movements straight across the junction ... [more]

The cycle filter at the end of Dargarvel Avenue has a signal since the junction of Dumbreck Road and Dumbreck Avenue is signalised. However, the gaps are not best aligned for movements straight across the junction.

The road leading away from Canniesburn Toll roundabout and onto Maryhill Road.

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.

A small route sign almost unreadable due to stickers (and appears not to mention the one route where there is a cycle facility), and a fallen diversion sign blocking the gutter. Providing a path in the park to connect to the segregated c ... [more]

The Possil Road spur of the Garscube Road cycle track ends at Braid's Brae, but drivers are parking on the footway on both Possil Road,across the end of the cycle track, and on Baird's Brae where the beige path is supposed to be shared use, ... [more]

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

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 path on the right connects Jessie Street with Prospecthill Circus (at #113826), while the one on the left heads past some of the new housing and onto the Malls Mire nature reserve.

The northbound South City Way cycle track is now operating at the Cumberland Street junction, but the southbound is closed off awaiting the installation of the two-way cycle track in Gorbals Street. The junction is marked as being for "a ... [more]

Toucan crossings all around the junction, but are any of the footways actually legal to cycle on? In any case, that street lighting column is blocking the footway.

An advance green has been provided for cycling into the protected cycle route straight ahead on Cambridge Street.

It must be a cycle path if it has a barrier across it. Ah, but it leads to a pedestrian crossing, not a toucan crossing, and the path on the other side does not align with the crossing. I noticed while waiting that a number of vehicles w ... [more]

The on-road option for cycling from Aikenhead Road onto Polmadie Road. A central cycle lane has been provided between the left-turn filter lane and the ahead lane for motor traffic.

The shared footway on Aikenhead Road, at the junction with Polmadie Road. There is no off-road cycling option for journeys that do not continue along Aikenhead Road. All the crossings are for pedestrians only.

The pop-up bus lanes in Braidcraft Road have been implemented in such a way as to make certain manoeuvers almost impossible without infringing the bus lane. At the Neilsland Square/Langton Crescent junction the central reservation gaps to p ... [more]

The person seen in #168687 gets frustrated at the lack of green signal on the cycle track and moves into the main carriageway to cross St Vincent Street legally on the Elderslie Street green.

Lack of cycle priority at cycle traffic signals on Elderslie Street. This person was already waiting as I arrived, when traffic on St Vincent Street had the green. See also #168688.

Nonsense bollards.

The shared footway has been built along Spean Street without any thought for those that want to leave or join the route at intermediate junctions. Dropped kerbs are missing at various locations where such a turn may be required. And foot ... [more]
