The path from Murray Road joins Baird Hill, but without a dropped kerb.

End of the Whitehills cycle route, but with a Toucan crossing across Quarry Road it could be extended along the path to Greenhills. The nearest dropped kerb to join the carriageway is at the uncontrolled crossing beyond the bus stop.

The start of the Whitehills cycle path at Quarry Road, but no dropped kerb. Plenty of room for a Toucan crossing across to the path to Greenhills.

Barriers across the path at Mallard Crescent, and no dropped kerb.

The continuity of Netherton Road (now a path) has been destroyed by the junction at Applegate Drive. Not even a dropped kerb at the end of the path (which has been slewed away from its original alignment).

The path to the canal could not only be wider, and have a dropped kerb at the end, but could also meet the road nearer the corner to avoid being blocked by parked vehicles. The priority sign to the right needs corrected too.

Briar Drive ends in a turning circle next to the Kilbowie Roundabout, and doesn't even have a dropped kerb for cycle access to the cycleway.

The start of the Kilbowie Roundabout cycleway when coming from Kilbowie Road southbound. One presumes that the 'No Stopping Clearway' and 'Give Way to Pedestrians' signs aren't aimed at the same roaduser, even though they are mounted one ... [more]

The sign says 'No Motor Vehicles' but no provision for cycling through this road closure on Braidfield Road to connect with the Kilbowie Roundabout cycleway.

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

The Drumchapel Way leaves Halgreen Avenue and takes the steps up to The Antonine Road. There is a bypass ramp, but no dropped kerb at the end for anyone following the route by bike.

Cycle parking at Milton Library and leisure centre, all up against a kerb.

A kerb and barriers across the start of the newly rebuilt path to Falkirk High station. There is a dropped kerb but it's off to the left (see #103465).

Lack of permeability at the end of Parkhead Road in Hallglen. There is a similar step off to the left as well.

Getting the sense these prefab kerbs fitted to anchor points aren't suitable on a route with such heavy traffic (Middlepath St, Belfast) https://t.co/DySgqGTitY

As seen in #103422, the dropped kerb on the Glenburn Road toucan crossing does not cover the full width of the tactiles.

At toucan crossing across Glenburn Road, the dropped kerb covers only about half the width of the tactiles. See close-up view at #103423.

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 HArTT cycle route turns left from Sandy Loan onto Polmont Road, then turns right onto a path (at the sign post) where there isn't even a dropped kerb! No help crossing this busy road. See #103068 for the view in the other direction. ... [more]

A path connecting Chisholm Place to Portal Road, without even basic crossing facilities like dropped kerbs where it crosses Newlands Road.

A path connecting Portal Road to Chisholm Place, although there are no dropped kerbs (nor any other crossing facilities) where it crosses Newlands Road. The whole length of Portal Road (which runs parallel to the A905 Beancross Road) is rid ... [more]

A single-sided sign for the routes available across the Grange Burn, but a low kerb rather than a proper dropped kerb at the end of the path. I wouldn't want to bump the bike over this when it is loaded with shopping!

A shared-use path starts on the left, to avoid the junction ahead, although NCN76 appears not to use it and instead turns at the junction, then turns again onto the next section of the same path. The dropped kerb is also far from flush, ... [more]

No dropped kerb into Rathbone Square.

The presumed shared-use footway alongside the road up to Palacerigg Country Park doesn't have a dropped kerb opposite Tannoch Road, making it difficult to join from the side road.

On the way to the park at Summerford, but there's no dropped kerb to join the path.

A path leading to an uncontrolled crossing of the A9 (see #101519) and the Sunnyside playing fields. Although the HArTT cycle route goes past either end of this path, it uses a signalled crossing of the A9 further to the north.

Roadworks blocking most of the shared footway on Smith Street, but no dropped kerb to join the carriageway of this quiet street. No provision for left turns into Northinch Street either.

There's a 'give way' at each field access, but there's little chance you'll actually need to give way to anything. The new kerbs appear to be stuck onto the carriageway and have come adrift in some places.

What I take to be the final layout at the Archerhill Road bus stop. The final white line (seen in #100294) directing cyclists into the undropped kerb has been blacked out.

A barrier guarding the steep access ramp down to the Union Canal towpath (see #101129) but rather awkward to get even a standard bike through.

The road does not extend as far as the flats in Lauderdale Gardens, making room for some grass and trees. But no dropped kerbs at either end of the path to assist with cycling through the area.

No dropped kerb at the end of the path linking the two halves of Turnberry Road, so anyone wanting to cycle along the path has to cycle along the footway for a little bit too.

The access to the canal is only from the footway in front of the shops and no account has been taken of the desire line to go straight to and from the carriageway.

The path cyclists are signed along in #100509 does not have a dropped kerb at the end, although there is one is a short distance along the footway near the mini-roundabout.

No actual kerb separating the carriageway and path to the canal, making for a smoother transition.

A high kerb across the end of the path to NCN754 Forth & Clyde Canal.

Cycle parking outside the sports centre in Yoker. It would be better with dropped kerbs to allow cycling through the road closure.

A closeup of the dropped kerb in #100293. The lining directs westbound cyclists into the undropped section of kerb. I am aware of one person who came off her bike at this location.

Call this a dropped kerb? Cut-through to Shafton Road.

Permeability for pedestrians only. Although there is a sort of ramp up to the kerb on this side, on the other side it is just a high kerb (see #48702).

Neither signed canal access paths (or the path to the continued Netherton Road) has dropped kerbs.

No dropped kerb at the entrance to a signed path linking Netherton Road to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath.

The end of the path from Clay Road at the Clay Crescent bus turning circle. All this could be upgraded to improve active travel permeability within Shirrel.

Pinch-point traffic-calming on North Road, Bellshill. The dropped kerbs don't appear to have been thought through to create a half decent crossing for pedestrians.

Brand new cycling infrastructure in Plymouth. Because nothing says "We care about cyclists and wheelchair users" quite as much as putting a kerb *right across* the path, eh @plymouthcc and @PersimmonHomes? https://t.co/sk5b8DquG4

The Cumbernauld Cycle Network's route 1 turns along this path to Craigmarloch, but there's no dropped kerb at the entrance. The 'No Through Road' sign could do with an 'except cycles' plate.

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

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.

No access to the cycle track from the side road. Not unique.

The path joins the car park without a dropped kerb for cyclists to rejoin the carriageway. All that matters seems to be car parking.

No dropped kerb for access to path network at Blackburn Street.

No dropped kerb at the start of the path from Drumoyne Road to the Craigton Road underpass.

The transition from path to street is not exactly award-winning.

Hopefully the new cycle route proposed for Jura Street will fix the problem of the missing dropped kerb at the ramp up to the M8 motorway underpass.

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.

"Welcome to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital" if arriving on foot or by bike.

A kerb on the approach to the pedestrian crossing across Cathcart Road. The cycle route continues across the other side of the road.

An interesting bollard, but access to the cycle path from the carriageway of Cotton Street involves either cycling along the footway or bumping the low kerb and going through the dirt.

A dropped kerb is to be added for access to the toucan crossing. Surely something that should have been done when this layout was originally built.

No dropped kerb to access toucan crossing across Fountainwell Road from adjacent road-end, and some subsidence in the footway.

This path is listed on the Glasgow City Council website as being part of the Glasgow Cycle Network. Cycle Routes: Stronend Rd Path - Stronend Rd Path N

Road closure on Whitevale Street, with no exemption for cycles. A useful street for crossing Dennistoun.

I was surprised to find that the path from London Avenue does not connect across Springfield Road to the path past the velodrome on the same alignment. A crossing is needed here.

Kerb across end of path between Contin Place and Wyndford Drive, on direct route from Tesco to the Kelvin Walkway. The path could be moved to the left a little, away from the wall, to reduce the problem of the blind corner.

Kerb across end of path from Wyndford Drive to Contin Place.

In response to a request for suggestions for minor improvement works, I contacted the council suggesting a dropped kerb at this location and received the following response: "Following an inspection of the cycle path access at Dalmarnock ... [more]

The Sighthill diversion route is obstructed by an undropped kerb.

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.

The Doune Quadrant/Doune Gardens problem is still very much there.

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 my favourite fragment of concrete in Glasgow, just by Science Centre. Been there for years. #nodroppedkerb https://t.co/7slQbFYLU7

What looks like a nice straight through alignment is spoilt by dropped kerbs in the wrong place (see #91229) and the path beyond the road being narrowed and not asphalted (see #91163).

I guess they never thought that anyone would cycle to the industrial units, so never thought to install a dropped kerb where the path meets the road. Of course, the majority of users will be going the other way, so why the turn away from ... [more]

The dropped kerb was placed at the roundabout off to the right rather than at the entrance to the cycle path, on a road that only services the station car park.

I didn't think it was possible for this crossing to become more farcical, but the roadway has been closed, meaning the cycle route bumps kerbs for no purpose.

Kerb should be dropped to allow children on bikes to enter park.

I don't know why Glasgow hasn't provided angled kerbs on the divider strip as it has elsewhere.

The last (or first coming from Rutherglen) cycle marking on the Cathkin Relief Road's cycle path. But no dropped kerb to rejoin the carriageway.

No dropped kerbs at the ends of the path between Wyndford Drive and Contin Place, useful for getting to and from the Kelvin Walkway.

No dropped kerbs at the ends of the path between Contin Place and Wyndford Drive, useful for getting to and from the Kelvin Walkway.

A kerb blocking the start of the path from Glen Dewar Place to Nitshill Road.

Still a kerb to bump for anyone trying to get onto the carriageway next to Bells Bridge, in this case due to the closure of the cycleway by a running event. One chap decided to go over the double kerb nearer the bridge ramp! See also #90342 ... [more]

A poor quality path from Kinfauns Drive across to Annan Drive, with a waymarker post for the Drumchapel Way.

Poor-quality surface, non-flush dropped kerb, not-so-great bollard, and a neglected but very clear desire line. This is the connection from Wadloes Road to Ditton Meadows.

A new toucan crossing on Beith Street for the new Lidl store, but needlessly difficult to get to from Anderson Street due to its position and all the clutter, including kerbs, in the way.

No dropped kerbs at Sword Street crossing on path to Bellgrove Street.

No dropped kerb at end of path to Bellgrove Street.

Railing and kerb present obstacles to anyone wanting to cycle to residential Barrowfield Street, although the far end of the turning head does have a dropped kerb.

Painted markings direct cyclists from Rutherglen onto the road to the right, but NCN756 actually goes left towards the Smart Bridge. Some dropped kerbs nearer or behind the camera would be useful here.

Typical nonsense markings in South Lanarkshire, where it appears cyclists are meant to cross from the footway of Glasgow Road (off to the right) onto the footway in the foreground, then immediately leave it for the on-road cycle lane. No he ... [more]

The kerb shown in #65650 has had an asphalt ramp added so what was meant to be a high quality gateway now looks a bit botched! A bollard has been removed and the motorists are taking advantage of the unenforced double yellows.

No dropped kerb for access from the road at the start of the path from Eurocentral to Holytown.

Route (74) turns right, but the dropped kerb is on the left.

At the top of the ramp from the retail park, no pedestrian crossing across Palace Grounds Road to get to the other pedestrian crossings on the fast and busy A72/A723 roundabout! There is no pedestrian crossing across Keith St here either, s ... [more]

The end of the path from Burnbank, near Peacock Cross. Could do with some dropped kerbs.

This crossing at Cameron Way would be categorised as an example of good practice if it weren't for the high kerbs each side of the road.

Path to the Livingstone Memorial Park, but there are steps further on.

A ludicrous arrangement at the bus stop on Main St. Not just the conflict caused by directing cyclists through the bus stop waiting area on the footway, but the raised kerb and drain cover at the start of the cycle lane! See also #89204.

A crazy arrangement for cycling on the footway through the bus stop. And watch out for the kerb when joining the cycle lane ahead - only the left side is dropped. See also #89206.

Despite the emphasis on 'footpath' and 'pedestrians' on the signs, the only other person I saw on this path was also on a bike. Could do with a dropped kerb here.
