The shared footway outside the Alison Lea Medical Centre. I don't know who thought that this would be an adequate design.

Limited sight lines at the St Leonards Road traffic lights on the Calderwood Road shared footway.

I'm hoping this newly marked cycle path alongside Whitemoss Avenue will be widened once the work behind the hoardings has been finished.

'Slow' - a path that needs widened once the work behind the hoarding is finished.

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.

No widening of this narrow footway took place to convert it into the Clydebank North Circular Link cycleway. Pathetic!

The road markings on part of Alderman Road have been renewed, including a buffer strip between the parking bays and the cycle lane, but there's really no point in painting it less than the width of a car away from the kerb.

Narrow cycle lane, Greenbank Road, Liverpool

Steep ramp from under bridge up to lock at Tapton - cyclists should use alternative route over bridge

Narrow towpath under road bridge at Tapton Lock - hence cyclists detour over road bridge

Towpath under road bridge at Tapton Lock Northbound showing narrow width and blind corner - hence recommendation for cyclists to follow signposted alternative over the road.

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.

A single bollard in an already narrow path, approached in all directions by paths. Is this really necessary? No directions on the signpost for the route to the right, which also happens to be the HArTT cycle route.

The path into the Kinneil Estate starts off narrow and twisty, but later widens out into more of a track.

Bridge over River Doe Lea on Cuckoo Way

@TrothBen @CycleInfraDay @Fenmonkey @bencooper Here is my trike on the bridge. Not much room for anyone coming the other way. https://t.co/19Afh1W4Gc

According to Network Rail, the railway bridge on Muirhead Road has been "rebuilt stronger and wider to enable two-way traffic, cycle route and pedestrian footpath". I don't see a cycle route. https://www.networkrailmediacentre.co.uk/news ... [more]

If the footway is narrow, of course the roadworks will block the full width.

The start of a narrow painted cycle lane on Camelon Road, just after a collapsing gully at a bus stop.

The way to avoid the steps at #101523 is to take the A9 road bridge across the railway, and the HArTT cycle route appears to do just that. However, there is no evidence that the narrow footway is legal for shared use, and the provision ... [more]

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.

The shared footway to the north of Blackwood is fairly narrow, right next to the carriageway, and ends pretty much as soon as it's past the 30mph signs. So roadies don't use it and it would be difficult to pass someone coming the other way ... [more]

This appears to be the end of the Dyke Road cycleway and the cycle route to the new BMX centre in Knightswood Park. I'm surprised the footway hasn't been widened behind the toucan crossing traffic signals to allow more room for turning.

I genuinely thought they would widen this extremely narrow footway as part of the Knightswood cycle route works, but no. See also #99502. At this point the shared-use footway on Dyke Road changes into a cycleway formed by orcas.

The path connecting the Forth & Clyde Canal to Netherton Road next to the David Lloyd centre is in a very poor condition, not just a poor and narrow surface but quite overgrown too.

A big sign for the roundabout at the end of Callendar Boulevard, but motorway regulations do not apply immediately on the road to the right. This sign is in effect a 'No Turn Right' sign for non-motorway traffic, and completely bogus.

The car parking in the Callendar Boulevard painted cycle lanes resumes, but with no waiting restrictions to force drivers to take their cars to the car parks, it appears the council approves.

A break in the car parking to see the narrow painted cycle lanes.

The passageway under the railway linking Drossie Road to the Union Canal (part of the John Muir Way), plus some cycle parking stands in a car park.

A steep access ramp to the Union Canal towpath, although there's not much that could be done to reduce the gradient without a big budget.

A very narrow and bumpy path that could be improved to connect Kirklee with Kelvindale Road and the Kelvin Walkway across the river.

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.

The route to the canal is signed along the narrow path to the left, to bypass the roundabout.

This is the route pedestrians and wheelchair users are directed along from Drumchapel station (see #100504), a narrow path with a poor inclined surface. Would two wheelchair users be able to pass easily? The far end is shown at #100508.

An update on #99502, double white lines have been added. Note the two on bikes on the footway across the other side of the road.

An already narrow shared-use footway in Fairlie, with a bus stop.

A narrow shared-use footway in Fairlie. I've no idea why specifically West Kilbride railway station is signed, when Fairlie's own station (with all the same train services) is much closer.

I guess they thought this old piece of path would be acceptable within this huge motorway building project. If someone ever did shut this gate properly and someone in a wheelchair needed to open it, it would be extremely difficult to do ... [more]

The path beneath the A8(M), Scotland's shortest motorway, has now been completed. I can't help but think they could have been more generous on the width. Not that lots of people will use it, but passing a couple of people walking a dog will ... [more]

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

I was reading the other day that David Hembrow likes cycle paths constructed out of concrete for their smoothness. He won't like this one however, because even without all the stones and muck it is still extremely bumpy! The shared footw ... [more]

A new cycle route under construction on Dyke Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. This was the last sign of work I saw heading down Dyke Road. Perhaps the footway will get widened. Update at #100297 and #101274.

The footway in the foreground was widened when it was converted to shared use (although the lampposts were left where they were), but beyond the toucan crossing the section to the shared use ramp to Old Polmadie Road has been left at its or ... [more]

The parking layby is again too narrow for ordinary cars to be reliably parked within, so eroding the buffer zone that is meant to contain door openings.

Despite the footway of residential Old Polmadie Road being designated as shared-use (see #98669), the narrow footway of the busy New Rutherglen Road has not. However, this non-standard route signage seems to assume it has been. A new eat ... [more]

A variable width newly nominated shared-use footway alongside the Fastlink busway. Also in the picture, cycle parking for the Village development.

Narrow shared use footway next to A road.

Horribly narrow cycle lanes.

https://t.co/tsUEhTAIsK A narrow two-way cycle track between a new housing development and the railway viaduct. There was a cycle track here before the housing was built, and it went through a car park and was wider (see old Google Stree ... [more]

Bus lane cameras. Will there be cycle lane cameras? A stepped two-way cycle track is being built along part of Govan Road, but the footway has been reduced to a minimal width, resulting in people walking on the cycle track. An extra metr ... [more]

Crossing of Groby Road

A vast roundabout and a narrow shared footway.

Far too narrow and unpleasant, but at least it's away from motor traffic.

Gets very narrow passing this industrial complex. There's a turnstile pedestrian access gate a little further on.

Narrow Advisory Cycle Lane leading to a Dangerous Pinch Point

Track towards Salisbury from Old Sarum is narrow in some places.

This restricted byway is the most overgrown and difficult track that I've experienced that is marked as National Cycle Network. I rode mostly in a rut with at times stinging nettles at least as high as my handlebars.

Narrow footway access at Taunton station southern side. This is a bit silly really as there is plenty of space in the vast forecourt.

A very narrow shared-use footway adjacent to the 'no expense spared' A727 dual carriageway flyover and sliproads.

A very narrow shared-use footway past a bus stop.

The anonymous cycle route signs points left, but the rather narrow footway straight ahead is also shared-use, as can be seen in #92637.

An extremely narrow section of path along the canal below the Ruchill St bridge. Shameful that something so bad could have been built in modern times!

The canal path goes under a modern road bridge on a very narrow section of path (see #92011), but it is possible to bypass it by going up the ramp to Ruchill St and crossing to rejoin the canal path beyond the bridge.

The path ahead goes to the A6091 at the Galafoot Bridge, while the waymarked Borders Abbey Way diverges to go down the steps in #91192.

Steep steps down to pass beneath the Galafoot Bridge, on the Borders Abbey Way.

The narrow path in #91163 joins a wider path that has come down a slope from Tweedbank Drive and is both NCN1 and the Southern Upland Way. Only the latter is signed as going up the ramp here. But the narrow path is the more direct route and ... [more]

I don't know why this path wasn't made wider, placed further away from the fence, and asphalted. Too narrow to pass anyone without that person stepping aside.

A pathetic worn-out narrow painted door-zone cycle lane in Kilmarnock Road from the council that won the "Achievements in Cycling" award at the 2017 Scottish Transport Awards.

Too narrow for two-way segregated lanes. There is no colour difference between the two sides, and the cycle symbols are rarely repeated, making it hard for users to tell which side they should be on. To add to the confusion, it is contrary ... [more]

Loose gravel is a bad surface for cycleways, as it can create slips and falls and increase risk of puncture. Here we can see that it is also not very attractive, because it gets thrown out of the path and embedded in the ground next to it. ... [more]

Obvious wheelruts where people are avoiding the fresh deep gravel. Loose gravel is a completely unsuitable surface for cycling. It can cause slips and falls, and increases the risk of punctures. It increases the difficultly of cycling for p ... [more]

These bollards pose a hazard to people walking and cycling. In the winter it is dark when most people are leaving work, but the bollards are unlit and unreflective. The further bollard in this picture partially blends in with the shadows fr ... [more]

Still no progress on getting this barrier removed. See #44115.

Dropped kerb is far to the left off the desire line, and if used means up to 3 sharp turns. Hedge gives poor visibility with the car park entrance. Narrow shared-use path.

Narrow gate restricts access, hedges mean poor visibility with the connection with the busway. The gate is locked in the evening, so even though some people will still be working, they cannot leave by foot and bike this way. The main road a ... [more]

The busway is an excellent facility for walking and cycling, as it is off-road, direct, smooth and wide. The Science Park has therefore made it as difficult as possible to use this facility with the potential to really boost active travel, ... [more]

Narrow central cycle lane mixes vulnerable cyclists close between lanes of moving traffic.

More obstructions on the narrow Mill Street footway.

A narrow footway unsuitable for cycling, but at either end has cycle facilities, seen in #90566 and #90572.

If cyclists are to stay on the footway at #90566, they will end up here at a very narrow section of footway through a bus shelter.

The narrow path is covered in mud washed down from the Cathkin Relief Road embankment.

The new route of NCN756 is over the right fork to the toucan crossing. The path ahead leads to a high kerb. I took a group ride over this and half of them went straight on, and it's not difficult to see why, especially with the old Give Way ... [more]

Dirt path between Waterbeach and Milton. (can you spy the drone flying overhead?)

Shared footway partially blocked on corner of Bunhouse Road and Old Dumbarton Road.

Contraflow cycling on the road to Yorkhill Hospital. Not much room for passing other than vacant car parking spaces, but downhill for an easy restart.
