Light segregation in Dublin with Wand in Orcas as opposed to wandorcas. Nice. https://t.co/f31hPKkG67

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

Tavistock Place

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.

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.

So my first trip up the protected cycleway on Leith Walk was predictably enjoyable https://t.co/1OKNi69gCn

A bus stop bypass with a zebra crossing in Wallacewell Road.

Work in progress on Wallacewell Road.

A motorist that doesn't understand how the footway works. A bus stop bypass with zebra crossing.

The cycle lane could do with a sweep, but the newly installed light segregation extends the cycle provision to the end of Wallacewell Road.

Right turn in two stages. Or play chicken with four lanes of traffic. #glasgowcycling https://t.co/HjgOdnKF7P [Ahead Only signs mean that right turn can only be made by the two-stage route.]

The cyclepath merges with the footpath, but someone has decided a full Give Way marking is required.

It's cold, so jeans and hoodie for cycling journey. The fixings for the bollard nearest the camera appear to be loose.

Apart from the pointless wiggle, quite good.

A slightly better approach to the monument than in #86781, but that kerb line sticks out into the cyclepath and might catch someone out.

Left or right at the monument? Seems it is right, but could have been made more obvious and smooth.

After what has come before, this section is comparatively good.

I can't help thinking that this sharp corner could somehow have been avoided.

The end of the new protected cycle lane across Glasgow Bridge. Only a poor quality painted cycle lane continues along Bridge Street, and apparently no provision for left or right turns onto the East-West NCN756 which crosses the road at the ... [more]

New infra heading southbound on the A77 - ends at a toucan. Better with at least! @S4CGlasgow @carsickglasgow https://t.co/jVJaP0NsfE

Beware of these at Aldgate... they scared the crap out of me the other day. If you hit one, you're going to be off. https://t.co/E3smhT1GUW Ed: The offending items are known as Orcas.

At the end of the Aikenhead Road cycle lane trial there is a final traffic island with bollards, and the an advisory cycle lane continues until the Calder Street junction. The cycle lane passes a wide depot entrance.

Stage 5 of the Aikenhead Road cycle lane trial consists of orcas between the cycle lane and the rest of the carriageway, after another traffic island.
