Still no dropped kerb at the Panmure Gate entrance to the award-winning Claypits Local Nature Reserve.

Part of Queen Margaret Road/Doune Quadrant has been shut to all vehicular traffic, and now Heras fencing has been put across the full width of the carriageway, preventing its use for cycling. The footway remains open and some cyclists are … [more]

The parking control traffic order for North Kelvinside has been fully implemented, including the one-way streets, and yet this Fire Path, which was proposed for opening up to cycling, remains closed to cycling. Just as the Queen Margaret … [more]

The Doune Quadrant/Doune Gardens traffic filter is even harder to use with added roadworks and carefree parking.

The sharp edge on the kerb in the foreground gave my front wheel a pinch puncture. Reported at: https://highwaysreporting.cambridgeshire.gov.uk?id=402957.

[Image taken 28.9.22] Raylor Centre, James Street, York. [NOTE: No street view at this location] Context and comments about the measurements, also links: #186444.

The Netherton Road traffic filter has still not been modified to comply with Council Policy to allow cycles through, and this rusty stump of a post is a tripping, cutting and puncture hazard when trying to get around using the lowest point … [more]

[More recent image here: #186206.] [Image taken 14.9.22] Screwfix, James Street, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] Positives: 1. There is cycle parking. 2. The cycle parking is covered. 3. The cycle parking is very close to the … [more]

The most dangerous thing about cycling has to be an abrupt end to a cycle lane where you literally have nowhere to go except up on a high curb. This is on Thomas Hynes Road, Newcastle. Imagine if a car lane ended like that! @GalwayCycling … [more]

The nearest dropped kerb to the start of the West Highland Way path is not convenient if coming from Ellangowan Road, and is located at the narrowest point in the footway. A second dropped kerb would be desirable further along nearer the … [more]

No dropped kerb to join the start of the West Highland Way path at Ellangowan Road. The nearest is off to the left.

The end of the West Highland Way path at Ellangowan Road. There is no dropped kerb to conveniently join the road to the left, only one off to the right to cross to the car park.

A path to North Dumgoyne Avenue to the left, and Cloberfield Gardens to the right. The latter has a 'No Cycling' sign part of the way along the path. No dropped kerb for either.

'No Cycling' on path towards a bridge over the Allander Water. No dropped kerb either. The bridge can also be accessed from the adjacent car park.

'No Cycling' on signed path from Mugdock Country Park, and no dropped kerb at Stable Road crossing.

A barrier across the entrance to the Craigdhu Wedge path. There is a dropped kerb to the right. The banner can cause visibility problems.

[Image taken 8.7.22] Parliament Street, York. The cycle parking in York centre moves. If there is an event on or an ‘attraction’ such as a merry go round, the racks are relocated. This is stressful and definitely not conducive to … [more]

No path connection between the road crossing and the entrance to Hogganfield Park. Have to bump kerb and cross grass. This is a signed walking and cycling route, the Seven Lochs Trail.

Traffic calming by way of filtering, but cycle access not provided, at a number of nearby junctions.

The contraflow cycle lane on Netherlee Road is now kerb protected.

The contraflow cycle lane on Netherlee Road is now kerb protected.

"A Fairtrade Town" (whatever that is), but no dropped kerb at the start of this narrow shared foot and cycle path alongside the A727 dual carriageway at Philipshill.

The South City Way cycle route construction is at least now happening on Gorbals Street and Victoria Bridge. While the cycle lane is shut, some cyclists ride on the road, some on the footway.

Kerb upstand on eastern side of crossing is nowhere near flush. Upstand of 20-25mm is higher than my tyre.

Filtered permeability for pedestrians only. This road closure was temporarily removed during the COP26 conference (due to road closures elsewhere) but has been reinstated without including cycle access.

[Image taken 26.4.22] Deangate, York. Context: #182113. Two lots of racks in a very practical location, with excellent natural surveillance (security), and if this rack is full there's always the next one, and vice versa. Other images today … [more]

[NOTE: #185679 The bollard protects a 'York' cycle] [Image taken 26.4.22] Deangate, York. The toastrack Sheffields (cycle parking) are too close to the kerb. I took the image for my collection of examples of 'what happens if racks are too … [more]

Filtered permeability for pedestrians only, with barriers and a lack of a conveniently sited dropped kerb on the other side impeding cycling. Not a major desire line, but I came this way due to roadworks on the main road.

[Further image of this issue here but also positive comments about the rack design: #182113.] [Image taken on 27.3.22] Deangate, York. Putting racks here is a good move. They are on the edge of the shopping area and very close to numerous … [more]

A new path has been built towards Kinfauns Drive, and has Drumchapel Way branded marker posts on either side, but there are no dropped kerbs or any other form of crossing on the road at this point. The original route of the Drumchapel Way … [more]

Looking the opposite way from #180493, the Drumchapel Way path awaits rebuilding on the east side of Kinfauns Drive, but a new path has been build on the west side, ending at a Drumchapel Way marker post next to the bus shelter, but with no … [more]

The obstructive toucan crossing with kerbs and railings on one side still remains unmodified, and none of the other problems previously noted on the Bilsland Drive cycle lanes have been resolved either.

Image taken 11.1.22] King Street, York. The onstreet rack (toastrack, Sheffields) is too close to the kerb. Hence the cycles being unstable. Other issue this rack see also: #177527. Other images today: #177526 and links.

No attempt has been made by the housing developer to integrate the existing paths into the new road layout, let alone upgrade them. The path on the left connects Daldowie Road with Caledonia Road at the bus terminus.

A gate across the road into Cuningar Loop park, passable on a standard bicycle, but the gap at the side will be problematic for non-standard bikes and for those with trailers.

The road closure on this side does not appear to accommodate cycling, but there is a direction sign at #176164 directing cyclists into this street.

The route sign says "Primary School" but the dropped kerb at the junction is of poor quality, with no obvious dropped kerb on the other side of the road closure in Dowanhill Street. The Colleges Route cycle lane has been made narrower and … [more]

The carriageway at the end of Park Drive has been claimed for a private car park, and obstructed by a lifting barrier. The sign proclaims it to be private land. This hinders cycle access to Kelvingrove Park.

No access to Blantyre Street from the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway, due to a continuous kerb opposite the junction. While it will probably only affect those wanting access to Blantyre Street itself, i.e. residents, access could have and … [more]

Although the former steps connecting Milton Mains Road and Glenhead Road to the Great Western Road shared footway have been replaced by a ramp (as seen in #107326), at the other end the nearest dropped kerb (just out of the picture) assumes … [more]

No crossing from shared footway/cycleway to sports facilities across the road.

The narrow path to Inchfad Drive does not have a dropped kerb at the Kendoon Avenue end, even though it should be a recognised crossing point from another path directly across the road.

Several of the entrances to Drumchapel Park have no dropped kerbs available to leave the carriageway, and also have railings hindering access. This is one of the shorter ones. The railing on the corner of Hecla Avenue makes it too difficult … [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 incomplete Old Dumbarton Road cycleway is unusable for cycling, but is being used for parking vans.

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 … [more]

No dropped kerb at the end of the path through Yorkhill Park at Centurion Way.

The end of Port Street has cycle route signage, but no dropped kerb to access the path seemlessly.

Still no raised crossing or dropped kerb to join the Benalder Street cycle track, which otherwise appears nearly complete, apart from the lamppost. UPDATE: These issues have now been resolved, see #175144.

The Old Dumbarton Road into Ferry Road cycle track is still under construction, and there is no temporary kerb ramp to aid joining the carriageway. There is also a drainage gully oddly in the middle of the westbound cycle lane.

The crossing to the east of Bunhouse Road has now been provided with asphalt ramps to aid pedestrians crossing. No sign of either dropped kerbs or raised crossings being installed. Incorrect corduroy (hazard) tactile paving is still in … [more]

The lining on the new Old Dumbarton Road cycle track has been done, for the section that is complete (either end is still in construction), but there is still no way of crossing the road from the Bunhouse Road shared footway due to kerbs. … [more]

South Street carries quite a lot of industrial traffic, due to the area it is in. So the cycle route (on the footway on the right) is so unattractive to these two cyclists that they prefer this road to the shared footway cycle route. The … [more]

Even this rebuilt entrance crossing does not have dropped kerbs for pedestrians.

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]

Still finishing work to be done on Old Dumbarton Road, and not looking likely to be finished in time for the COP26 diversion route coming this way. UPDATE: The raised crossing has now been installed. See #175266.

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 … [more]

No dropped kerb for getting onto signed cycle path at Woodhill Road.

The footbridge over Springburn Road is accessed from a car park at the end of Carbisdale Street, but there are some steps to climb. These could easily be ramped so this route is properly accessible. The footbridge itself is step-free, … [more]

The road closure on Denmark Street does not permit through cycling, even though Hawthorn Street now has protected cycle lanes. Access for pedestrians only.

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]

There is a lack of a dropped kerb to allow access to the canal towpath at the end of the car park at Firhill. A temporary ramp has been provided, but this is possibly related to the construction work on the bridge to the Claypits nature … [more]

The crossings at the Old Dumbarton Road/Benalder Street junction still await raised carriageways, so these two had to bump the kerb in order to join the cycleway. UPDATE: This issue has now been resolved, see #175144.

The crossings on Old Dumbarton Road still do not have raised carriageways, so continue to hinder cycling across. However, the cycleway is still blocked further along.

The West Street access point to the Forth & Clyde Canal could use a dropped kerb.

No dropped kerb for access to the bridge across the railway and M80 motorway, connecting Robroyston Road to Winifred Street and the other half of Robroyston Road.

No dropped kerb at western access to motorway bridge in Winifred Street.

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]

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).

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.

A dropped kerb is still required at both ends of the path connecting the Clydebank Business Park and Singer Road.

A diagonal road filter retro-fitted with full cycle access.

A diagonal road filter, with full access for cycling. But no dropped kerbs for pedestrians to cross by.

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]

Fire Path in Balgonie Road, with no provision for through cycling.

The area around Crossloan Terrace and Harmony Square is permeable for pedestrians, but things could be made easier for cycling by installing a few dropped kerbs and connecting paths.

No provision for cycling through the road closure at the end of Clunie Road onto Corkerhill Road.

No provision for cycling through the road closure at the end of Ladybank Drive into Corkerhill Road, but since the kerb is low on this side, it can be bumped. Council policy says road closures should exempt cycles from the closure.

No provision for cycling through the road closure at the end of Moness Drive onto Corkerhill Road.

The end of McClue Avenue has been shorted and the area given over to parkland, but there's no proper dropped kerb to access the path to the left.

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.

No direct cycle access from Claddens Street and Claddens Place to Balmore Road, just access for pedestrians.

Again I forgot to approach this gate on the footway, since there is no dropped kerb to assist with getting around it from the carriageway. Update 2022: See #188011 where dropped kerbs have been provided.

No provision for cycling through the road closure on Albert Drive.

No provision for cycling through the road closure in Aytoun Road.

The path from the allotments (see #170043) reaches the playing fields car park via this gate. The kerb could be lowered to make it more accessible.

No provision for cycling (other than the parking stands) and minimal provision for pedestrians at the busy Wallace Street junction with Dalintober Street. A dropped kerb crossing across three lanes of fast moving traffic heading for the … [more]

Building work continues at Clyde Place. The cycle track approaching the Tradeston Bridge has been rebuilt. However, the position of the temporary railing directed me onto the new kerb which I wasn't expecting.

Fire Path at Skene Road. There is no dropped kerb on the Paisley Road West side.

The path connecting Cogan Street and Shawbridge Street has been laid out for pedestrian use only, but provides a route to and from the retail park that avoids Nether Auldhouse Road, so would be useful for cycling too. Although there is a … [more]

A road closure in Saracen Street that does not permit through cycling, against Council Policy. In this case, the location of some dropped kerbs make it not too difficult to get around, but may be trickier with a non-standard cycle. Saracen … [more]

A road closure in Barloch Street that does not permit through cycling.

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 gate right across the carriageway of Bogside Road, hindering cycling between Millerston and Robroyston. There is no dropped kerb on this side of the gate to enable it to be bypassed using either footway.

An asphalt ramp in place of a dropped kerb at the end of the Stobcross Street service road, probably as good as the location can hope for. The path leads to the Stobcross Bridge and NCN756.

The alignment of Abbotsford Place is continued in the form of a path, but is blocked by the parked car transporter on Cumberland Street. There is no formal crossing or even dropped kerbs.

Maybe not terribly useful for cycling, but the path that crosses Buccleuch Street on its way from West Graham Street to Hill Street and Renfrew Street does not have dropped kerbs at either side. There are also some cycle parking stands … [more]
