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 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]

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. I figure this probably isn't finished, but all the surface work appears to be done and only the lining remains to be finished. However, what alignmen ... [more]

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The purpose of the shared footway appears to be lost on the locals.

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The approach to the toucan crossing appears to be quite messy. I'm not sure why the white lines extend around each corner into the side roads. Maybe thi ... [more]

The newly built section of the Waterloo St cycle track has been surfaced with little stone blocks, and features this sharp deviation around a new layby. In the background is the toucan crossing across to the Anderston Bridge.

A brand new section of cycle track on Waterloo St, which has been surfaced with silly stone blocks, with little to distinguish it from the footway, unlike the rest of Waterloo St where the distinction is much clearer.

The finishing touches remain to be done at the new path into the Clay Pit local nature reserve.

A new path at the Clay Pit local nature reserve.

New paths at the Clay Pit local nature reserve. The surface is gravel so not so good for cycling, but was frozen solid with frost when I visited.

A toucan crossing across the dual carriageway connects Bothwell to the Raith Interchange walking and cycling provision. As it forms part of the junction traffic signal system, one side of motor traffic is stopped before the other.

The path from the Raith Interchange continues alongside the dual carriageway to Bothwell Bridge. There is literally nothing on this side of the road. A toucan crossing is provided for getting across to Bothwell.

The end of the ramp from the Raith Interchange roundabout cycle bridge (see #93301) ends at the A725 sliproad. There are then some right-angled corners to turn at and toucan crossings to cross to get to Bothwell. Queuing drivers also see ... [more]

The ramp from the cycle bridge over the Raith Interchange roundabout comes down in the No Man's Land between two dual carriageways, rather than on the side where Bothwell is. Users therefore have to cross four carriageways using toucan cros ... [more]

The second cycle bridge across the Raith Interchange roundabout requires all users to pass under it and go around a loop to get up to it. There isn't even a staircase shortcut for walkers!

An enforced sharp double-back to get to cross the new cycle bridge across the Raith Interchange roundabout coming from Strathclyde Country Park. Very poor design!

A new cycle bridge across the Raith Interchange roundabout, but you have to go under it and a distance up the road towards Bellshill because there isn't a ramp coming from Strathclyde Country Park.

I'm not sure the sign for Newark Castle is strictly necessary!

A sign on the newly signed regional route 21 in Port Glasgow (referred to in council documents as R21).

Nice job! Makes cycling along the Clyde so much nicer @GlasgowCC @SustransScot #NCN75 https://t.co/pSQNMVmIkn

It's hard to believe that this path is only a few weeks old. Unlike the other rebuilt paths linking to and from the Kelvin Walkway, this riverside path was not asphalted, but instead has been given a loose surface. Unsurprisingly, it is ... [more]

A welcome new path connecting the Kelvin Walkway to Southmuir Place, but it appears to have been built without any regrading of the gradients, so has a sudden steep climb.

A welcome new path to Southmuir Place, but needs protected from use by drivers.

A welcome new path from Southmuir Place towards the Kelvin Walkway, but why the adverse camber, and couldn't more of an effort be made to tidy up the start? With no bollards to protect the path, there are also motor vehicle tyre tracks.

Where are all the bussists? Newly built disused bus stops on the Cathkin Relief Road, because the bus company quite sensibly decided it would rather continue running its buses along Fernhill Road. But still no excuse for the lighting col ... [more]

These barriers on the NCN7/75 look brand new and contravene @sustrans guidance on access controls: https://t.co/fR4xOMAmRt https://t.co/fNQV15dMJi

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.

A new contraflow cycle lane on Holm St, still awaiting signage.

A mysterious strip of asphalt has appeared at the new toucan crossing in Royston.

A nice new replacement bridge over the River Colne, but the signs obscure visibility of each other. Also on a round pole, rather than the square poles used elsewhere locally.

A nice replacement bridge over the River Colne, but a pity about the tactiles being the wrong type. The sign reads "Please give way to pedestrians on bridge".

At a path junction like this I'd expect the corners to be filled in. I guess at some point the vacant plots of land will be developed and the opportunity to do this missed.

The path network in the former athletes' village includes a few unusual features such as this bridge across the water feature, and this plaque explaining a bit about the village.

New path connecting Dalmarnock to the new bridge across the River Clyde to the new Cuningar Loop park.

Mysterious new path. See #87997.

Phase one of Access to Headington complete. Narrow on road lane replaced with shared footway. https://t.co/6BqtOy7yfp

New straight and lit cyclepath replacing steps outside the Sheriff Court. The old path next to the river has been retained for pedestrians.

Shiny new cycling infrastructure on Cattlemarket Road. https://t.co/nfKO1r8T0L

The shared-use footway alongside Maryhill Road ends at this new toucan crossing, from where the interim Bears Way route continues through Cluny Park. A "Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway" sign has been provided just beyond the crossing, so footwa ... [more]

Brand new. What a shambles. This council is ripping the pish out of us, folks. https://t.co/EWsktpLR7v

Some fairly new wheel-twisting cycle parking in the West Park in Cumbernauld Village.

Brand new direction sign with graffiti. It is easier to get to the hospital by bike via the path to the left which leads to Hardgate Road. The path to the right leads to the Shieldhall Road roundabout where it is difficult to cross the r ... [more]

While the cycle parking provision at the new Village development is welcome, I think we can all see what is going to happen due to the lack of a path directly into the site from the toucan crossing. [Paving has since been provided.]

Another instance of there being no dropped kerb at the end of a path in the Village development, this time in Govan Road. [This one has since been rectified, see #95263]

As with #71111, there is no dropped kerb at the end of the path to Govan Road. The chap in the previous photo cycled around the turning head to the left.
