The path over the River Kelvin bridge is very narrow, so having this fence block sightlines onto it until the last moment before knowing whether the way is clear or not is rather unhelpful. #102680 illustrates the width. With the gate left … [more]

"Doom awaits" - a fence blocking sightlines onto the narrow path across the River Kelvin expressway bridge. No such problems for drivers on the adjacent road. See also #175173.

The staggered toucan crossing on Castlebank Street at the end of the fancy bridge from Beith Street has a rather narrow central island, made worse by the railing have taken a bit of a battering.

Parking bays have been painted on the road adjacent to the double white lines. Even on a bike, there is insufficient room to safely pass parked vehicles without crossing or straddling the double white lines. The parking bays and double … [more]

'No Cycling' on the narrow path next to Robertson Park. There is a parallel route through the park where cycling is permitted.

Narrow barriers to negotiate at the end of the riverside path in Renfrew.

This footway was once upgraded to a shared-use cycle route.

The bridge between the bascule bridge and the Inchinnan Bridge only has a narrow footway on one side. The access to the new bridge must therefore be via some new path constructed off to the left.
