[Image taken 29.11.21] Field View, York. Pavement parking. Other images this issue: #176442 and links. (Streetview also illustrates one of the results of pavement parking: two people - one who does not have a choice - are in the road.)

[Image taken 29.11.21] Field View, York. Pavement parking on the other side of the street. This side (close to the junction with Haughton Road) has been patched many times. It has a variety of surfaces and today part of it was icy. The blac ... [more]

The revitalised former railway bridge across Dumbarton Road in Bowling, now part of the Bowline project.

Painted bollards at Anderston Cross.

Pavement parking outside the school gates in Dornal Avenue.

A recommended route for cycling on Kendoon Avenue. Where did it start? Where does it end?

A council van has been parked on the footway at the entrance to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery car park, obstructing families trying to walk past. The footway also forms part of the West City Way cycleway, since the adjacent carriageway is one ... [more]

The incomplete Old Dumbarton Road cycleway is unusable for cycling, but is being used for parking vans.

Cars being parked on the footway of Garscube Road, rather than in the place indicated by a single yellow line on the road. Not helped by a waiting peak restrictions sign being next to the double yellow lines.

Large gaps in protection on the eastbound cycle lane in Brockburn Road, and parking bays with pavement parking.

The sign on the gate says "No Parking" but there is no enforcement. The footway forms the link between the partly installed toucan crossing across Craighall Road and the canal path.

A van driver parked in the protected cycle lane and on the footway, while pedestrians try to get by.

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 toucan crossing across Castlebank Street at the Glasgow Harbour development is missing its red man and green cycle lights. The road surface is also badly worn.

On the left a Loading Bay, and ahead some pavement parking loading activity. See also #173732.

The junction where it is proposed to close NCN7 during the COP26 conference and divert users around the streets of Yorkhill, Finnieston and Anderston. The carriageway of the road is accessed via the dropped kerb before the bridge, and the f ... [more]

The first sign that the Benalder Street/Beith Street junction is going to be signalised, but no clues as to how the cycle track ending here will be tied into this. The dropped kerb and crossing studs have not deterred these selfish drive ... [more]

Subsidence on the Nicholson Street cycle track.

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.

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.

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 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.

Look at this guy just enjoying the new cycle lane installed on Bilsland Drive in Glasgow. Who cares about cyclist safety? Not this guy! What a tw*t!! 🤬🤬🚴🏻‍♀️ https://t.co/RJQ3Ud3b9S

One for you @UrbanistTOC 😠 t.co/7ge2Ygk40g [Car parking in the cycle lane in Corkerhill 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]
