At the bottom of the stepped ramp in #175030, new path construction associated with the Scottish Water works.

Slow progress on the North Canal Bank Street cycle track. The surface is now in on the cycle track side, but not the pedestrian side. The tactile paving is still the incorrect tyre-grabbing hazard type. This is the end of the cycle track.

Slow progress on the North Canal Bank Street cycle track. The surface is now in on the cycle track side, but not the pedestrian side. The tactile paving is still the incorrect tyre-grabbing hazard type.

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 plac ... [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. T ... [more]

The canal path access next to the Centre81 community centre is now opened. There are steps and a hair-pin bend ramp. The community centre also has some cycle parking.

A new canal towpath access point has been created at the Centre81 community centre in Whitecrook. UPDATE: Now open.

A new steps and ramp access to the canal towpath is being built at the Centre81 community centre in Whitecrook. The towpath here has been resurfaced over a short distance.

[Image taken 9.7.21] New Lane, Huntington, York. 30mph on one side, 40mph on the other. Despite the narrowness of the carriageways, the lack of sightlines - both directions. In the direction of the camera a short distance further on there i ... [more]

The new bridge across the Black Cart Water is now in place, and awaiting completion of work.

The new bridge across the Black Cart Water is now in place, and awaiting completion of work.

The cycle track alongside Fountainwell Road ends here, with some Guidance Path tactile paving. It looks suspiciously like it will go no further on this side, and it crosses over to a new path on the other side of what can be quite a busy (a ... [more]

The cycle path along St Rollox Drive now extends onto Fountainwell Road.

The new road between Clydebank College and Cable Depot road. This section is as yet unopened, but I saw a few people on bikes using it. At this end, it connects with NCN7. There are bus stops, but no cycle facilities along the road.

A section of new road linking Cable Depot Road to the Clydebank College area. This section is as yet unopened. Here the road is raised to footway level, and corduroy tactiles are used to mark the limit of the carriageway.

A poorly designed corner on junction at Cable Depot Road. The verge and tactile paving is being run over by vehicular traffic.

A new road parallel to Dumbarton Road, connecting Cable Depot Road to the area around Clydebank College. I don't know what bus service they expect will use this road once open completely, since this road effectively bypasses the town centre ... [more]

A new section of path connecting the Snow Bridge and the grounds of the University of Glasgow, with potential to connect to the redevelopment of the Western Infirmary (behind).

The new path in Dawsholm Park (on the right) ends where it meets the old path for the second time. A direct asphalted route through the park between Dalsholm Road and Ilay Road has been reestablished.

The new path from Dalsholm Road continues through the park and has at long last provided an alternative route around the section of park that was fenced off years ago. The fence is now lined with trees. The old path can be seen to the right ... [more]

A brand new path with a brand new barrier obstructing it, in Dawsholm Park. The path to the left leads to a flight of steps, and to the right continues around the edge of this part of the park to link with the main path through the woods, b ... [more]

Slow progress on the Old Dumbarton Road cycle track. The corduroy tacile paving is incorrect.

[Image taken 4.4.21] Near New Bridge Lane, York. This 'self service' noticeboard always looks well used. It is likely much cheaper to source, install and maintain than the glass fronted ones administered by the wards. I often stop and look ... [more]

The Old Dumbarton Road cycle track isn't even finished and already it is attracting fly parking by motorists.

The new cycle track along Old Dumbarton Road. In addition to the top surface (in the foreground) not being machine laid, the tactiles are incorrect Corduroy/Hazard type and not the Tramlines/Cycleway type. Being at the foot of a hill, these ... [more]

The new cycle track on Old Dumbarton Road has expensive stone kerbs and divider strips, but the top surface has not been machine laid, so is lumpy and uneven. Disappointing. The cycle track replaces on-street metered parking.

[Photo taken 5.2.21] This wooden gate is on the motor traffic-free access between New Lane and the P&R at Monks Cross, York/Vangarde/the leisure centre... and the community stadium. What is its purpose?

[Image taken 4.2.21] The outside of the Folk Hall has been landscaped. It looks inviting. There are two areas of seating. The benches at this location are attractive - with wooden elements, have arm rests for people who need to push themsel ... [more]

[Image taken 4.2.21] The Folk Hall (https://newearswickfolkhall.com/about/) is a long, attractive building. Even into 2020, access from the road, for example for people with cycles or using mobility scooters, was poor. It wasn't clear how y ... [more]

No dropped kerb and a pavement parking problem at the new end of the path from Jessie Street to Prospecthill Circus.

A new roundabout at Mavor Avenue/Avon Drive. It wasn't clear where the cycle route went.

Cycle parking at the new Lidl store. The car park is outside the front door.

No turns between the new St Rollox Drive and Keppochhill Drive. There is also no connection from the cycleway to Keppochhill Drive industrial estate. Must U-turn at the Keppochhill Road junction crossing.

The new road layout at the junction of Fountainwell Road and St Rollox Drive does not include a connection to the new cycleway. The speed of some of the traffic on the new road seemed quite high.

The junction of Fountainwell Road and St Rollox Drive, seen from the old footpath along the edge of Sighthill Cemetery. The start of the cycleway can be seen, and this is the only access. UPDATE 2021: The cycle path has now been extended ... [more]

Effectively the end of the new cycleway alongside St Rollox Drive, with no way back onto the road and only a connection to the old footpath. UPDATE 2021: The path has now been extended, see #170148.

The new cycleway alongside St Rollox Drive, the new road along the northern edge of the Sighthill redevelopment.

A new toucan crossing at the junction of Keppochhill Road, Carlisle Street and St Rollox Drive, the new road across the northern edge of the Sighthill redevelopment.

NCN75 goes right through Gourock station, but it doesn't look like anyone is getting in this gate today. A path to the left is really what is needed, allowing access past the station to reach #91054 without dismounting.

New Zealand - Auckland - Cycleway

The start of the Lincoln Avenue cycle track, seen from the opposite direction to #101264.

If you like roller coasters @NewcastleCC is building one along the great north road. These driveways could have been dealt with so much better. @NewCycling https://t.co/rWWKtW2nsq

I'm not normally one for ragging on my colleagues but this shiny new car park at Gloucester station is an active travel crime scene. True @bollocksinfra https://t.co/c1octJbVNO

I was surprised to see this sign at the newly rebuilt Partick Bus Station. The pedestrian crossing around the corner has been removed. Non-bus traffic has to use this lane past Partick Bus Station, but a left turn is required to get to t ... [more]

Precisely no-one ends their journey here, so why does the cycle lane end here?

Since my last visit painted cycle lanes have appeared on Hamilton Road west of Daldowie Road. Perhaps some of the extensive hatching could have been sacrificed in order to provide some segregation.

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.

The Dyke Road cycleway ends at a new toucan crossing which provides a connection to Speirshall Close. There were new 'Recommended Route for Cyclists' signs in Speirshall Close, but I couldn't work out where they were leading. NCN7 can be ... [more]

The Dyke Road cycleway at the Craggan Drive junction. Although the cycleway markings suggest the cycleway has priority, the 'give way' markings at the kerbline have not been refreshed and there is a danger drivers from Craggan Drive will pu ... [more]

The space-wasting hatching on Dyke Road has been removed and a cycleway installed instead.

I skidded to a halt to take photo #101275. Didn't expect that.

The spacing of the orcas changes opposite the junction of Moorhouse Avenue to accommodate turns to and from the cycleway.

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.

A blind corner on the Dyke Road shared-use footway. See also https://twitter.com/CalumCook91/status/1022590507606831106

Another vehicle parked on the widened shared-use footway in Dyke Road. See also #99500.

The new section of widened shared-use footway on Dyke Road, with a surface mounted sign.

The end of the on-road cycleway on Lincoln Avenue, but where next? The fresh dropped kerb across the junction suggests that it is onto the existing footway. And another corner for collecting detritus. UPDATE: A direction sign for a qu ... [more]

The new cycleway on Lincoln Avenue, with a staggered uncontrolled pedestrian crossing.

A bus stop bypass on Lincoln Avenue, next to Knightswood Park. Most bus passengers will be alighting at this stop rather than boarding. Looking back at my photos of this route, I notice that only this section has the 'No Loading' kerb ma ... [more]

The new cycleway on Lincoln Avenue. If you don't want to turn left into Archerhill Road you need to leave the cycleway, but there's nothing to say this.

The new cycle track in Lincoln Avenue, past the new BMX centre in Knightswood Park. This bit looks like it may be prone to flooding.

The new cycle lane in Archerhill Road needs swept, and a motorist has decided to park in the gap between orcas at the BMX centre entrance.

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.

The new cycle track in Archerhill Road turns right into Lincoln Avenue.

The new cycle track on Archerhill Road turns into Lincoln Avenue and is no use for getting to Knightswood Cross or Anniesland.

A new ramp up to a new car park and cycle parking (see #101148), linked to Falkirk High station. The gap in the railing halfway up is for a dirt path leading to Slamannan Road.

New cycle parking in a new car park for Falkirk High station. But 'Cyclists Dismount' on the ramp down to the Union Canal. See also #101153.

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.

This just doesn't look good at all.

The cycleway suddenly turns from a shared-use footway behind the bus shelter and jumps into an on-road two-way cycle lane.

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.

The bus stop impasse (seen in #99495) has now been painted up. A closeup of the dropped kerb can be seen in #100294.

I was expecting something a little more physical for separation than just paint, but maybe it's not finished yet. UPDATE: Orcas have since been installed.

Car parking in the under construction cycle track in Archerhill Road, opposite the, erm, car parking layby.

Car parking on the under construction cycle track in Archerhill Road.

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.

A new cycle route under construction on Dyke Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. I imagine this isn't finished.

A new cycle route under construction on Dyke Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. A shared footway is going in here, and some education of the locals on the purpose of the shared footway appears to be necessary.

The BMX Centre under construction at Knightswood Park. Bigger than I thought.

A new cycle route under construction on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The entrance to the new BMX Centre, showing something close to a continuous footway across the entrance roadway.

A new cycle route under construction on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. I think the cycleway is to be segregated from the road using orcas or similar.

A new cycle route under construction on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. A staggered pedestrian crossing across the road (signalled) and cycleway (probably zebra). I think the cycleway is to be segregated w ... [more]

A new cycle route on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. A bus stop impasse? It appears the intent is that cyclists using this cycle lane should use the dropped kerb to join the footway and go around the back ... [more]

A new cycle route on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The view from the rear of the bus shelter in #99493.

A new cycle route on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. Quite why a proper bus stop bypass wasn't installed here I don't know. The bus shelter should be moved closer to the boarder and the segregated cycle tr ... [more]
