West Thomson Street has been partially resurfaced (see #107341), but the cycle lane has not been reinstated, even though the signs remain, albeit one facing in the wrong direction.

The cycle lanes on Broomfield Road are almost invisible now.

The end of the two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road. It just ends.

Part of Kenmure Street has been converted to cycles only to reduce through traffic, but motorists have decided to use both the walking and cycling spaces for motor vehicle parking.

Part of Kenmure Street has been converted to cycles only, but incorrectly signed on approach as a 'No Through Road'.

Parking on the footway, driving in the hatching. The rules of the road have broken down. Just beyond the van is a dropped kerb, before the traffic signals, that allows access to the footway in order to use the toucan crossing across to t ... [more]

No provision for cycling through the closure of Victoria Park Drive South at Westland Drive. A dropped kerb and toucan crossings at the junction signals would probably suffice.

"Cycle Lane Suspended" - no further details. Roadworks are taking place in the contraflow cycle lane in Howard Street ahead. A diversion could have been set up via Dixon Street and Fox Street. See also #170199.

Car parking on the footway cycle lane in Maxwell Drive. The cycle lane leads to a toucan crossing across St Andrew's Drive and is two-way.

The cyclist avoids the pavement cycle lane that the driver up ahead is in the process of parking in.

Pavement parking in Scotland Street, opposite a car park. The line segregation cycleway sign is wrong too, since the cycleway is to the left of the footway.

The transition from the path to Bengal Street is a bit messy, since it is missing a bit of asphalt.

Pavement parking in Cogan Road, outside a huge free car park at the retail park. The Advance Stop Line is the only concession to cycling on this road.

Canniesburn Toll roundabout, where changes are proposed including signalisation. See https://arcg.is/1P81rb Also included in the plans is a sliproad outside of the shops with parking spaces, since the parking presently occurs exclusively ... [more]

Secure cycle parking required at tower blocks in Charles Street. This location is very handy for cycling into the city centre, but better storage is required.

As with #169532, the first opportunity to leave the presumably shared footway (there are no signs to confirm this) is beyond the roundabout where a dropped kerb crossing has been provided.

Parking problems outside the shops.

Unlike other armadillo-protected cycle lanes around the city, there are no double yellow lines on Wallacewell Road, and fly parking is still a problem, particularly at gaps in the armadillo provision.

Car parking in Laurieston all over the place, and some random cycle parking. I guess the streetlighting is nearing replacement.

Car parking in the rebuilt Laurieston area is perhaps not how the designers intended.

Class Parking Glasgow 🥰 https://t.co/pGRC0XOoWt

The shared footway has been built along Spean Street without any thought for those that want to leave or join the route at intermediate junctions. Dropped kerbs are missing at various locations where such a turn may be required. And foot ... [more]

The South City Way cycle track on Victoria Road.

Revamped contraflow cycle track in Gourock Street, replacing a painted lane.

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

The dropped kerb on the right (see #46778) is blocked by van parking, and the stopped up section of road is also covered with indiscriminate parking.

A van parked in the Clarence Drive cycle lane, another also on double yellow lines in the adjacent back lane.

Light segregation installed on the Colleges Route cycle lanes in Clarence Drive. Again, a break in the armadillos for the pedestrian crossing, and a car illegally parked just before they resume.

The Langlands Road cycleway restarts as a designated strip of asphalt outside the shops. Despite the tyre marks on the kerb, there is no dropped kerb, and cycle access is from the narrow toucan crossing.

The shared-use footway on Archerhill Road crosses sides, from the wide footway to the narrow footway with a campervan parked on it, right at the end of the zig-zags for the toucan crossing and next to a junction.

Car parking by a professional driver on the shared-use footway on Archerhill Road.

Albert Road Hale . Filtered road. Modal filter with inadequate and poorly located dropped kerb. Quite often the access is blocked by many parked cars (google view from Albert Road .

Persistent pavement parking problem here. More problematic now due to the need for social distancing - this pavement tends to get a fair amount of footfall as it is a key route from Petersfield to Riverside. [Photographer unknown]

The start of the Great Western Road cycle lane. The motorists have found somewhere else to park - on the footway.

Regular, not sporadic, enforcement of dbl yellows is needed on Spean St. This shared footway/cycle path is blocked daily by cars, SUVs, vans and lorries. 21 vehicles today. Zero space for people to social distance either. @GlasgowCC ple ... [more]

More cars parked in the Cardonald Place Road contraflow cycle lane. When I got to the traffic signals, I waited for two pedestrian phases and still the cycle phase did not happen.

The cycle route from Blantyre leaves Wilson Place to join NCN756, but no mention of NCN756 on the sign. A dropped kerb at the end of the path would be of assistance to anyone cycling to or from Wilson Place itself.

An entrance to the Calderglen Country Park, with steps.

Brancumhall Road looking towards St Leonards Road, and to the right a path to an underpass.

Glasgow's joined up infra as it transitions from segregated to 'shared with pedestrians'. A pole and a parked van. Nice. https://t.co/I1zYIvWeLB

The nearest dropped kerb to the start of the path to Falkirk High station (see #103464) is on a very narrow section of footway, and together with the barriers makes for a needlessly awkward piece of cycling.

A kerb and barriers across the start of the newly rebuilt path to Falkirk High station. There is a dropped kerb but it's off to the left (see #103465).

Superb example of inappropriate pavement parking and encroachment onto a roundabout from the ever inconsiderate @ArnoldClark @ACHelpTeam It’s no wonder the concrete is sinking. @BadParkersUK https://t.co/TFDuYXL0qv

A wide pavement with a really crummy painted cycleway and pavement-parked cars. This side of the city seemed to have worse infrastructure than the other side. But selfish pavement parking is widespread here.

Pavement parking is the scourge of Romania.

Tameside nr Manchester on the Lord Sheldon Way . This states the obvious but more of these are required to prevent obstruction of the footway especially when it is shared like here. Also enforcement notices are very welcome.

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

A mobile shop van parked on a footway buildout rather than using an empty parking space nearer the static shops. The bus stop is only served by the once-a-day service 709. This section of road used to have a cycle lane that followed t ... [more]
