A split toucan crossing across Bridge Street, with a narrow caged central island. But let's look at that blue sign up ahead... #110652

Hereford shared use on Ross Road.

When Drumry Road East was first closed off at the Great Western Road roundabout, the traffic order exempted cycles from the closure. But nothing was done to facilitate cycle access, and even now that there is a shared-use footway on the oth ... [more]

Llandudno shared-use near a school, taken from a bus.

Llandudno shared-use near a school, taken from a bus.

The railings on this bride seem a bit low and permeable for a cycle route.

The underpass from Maxwellton Road under Kingsway ramps up to Maxwell Drive. The sign for NCN756 suggests cyclists are expected, yet there is no dropped kerb to join the carriageway at the end of the ramp. However, there is a dropped ker ... [more]

Cycle parking outside the shops on Kinfauns Drive, although access is restricted from the road by railings.

Kinfauns Drive outside the Drumchapel Shopping Centre and Health Centre. Bike parking both sides but access restricted by extensive use of guard railings. The Drumchapel Way crosses the road here and the signs can just be seen.

'Keep Clear' but no clear cycle access to the crossings at the Dumbarton Road/Mountblow Road junction. Farm Road off to the right leads to the Forth & Clyde Canal, although Dumbarton Road ahead is the most direct route to the town centre.

The walking route from Old Dalnottar Road to Dumbarton Road (on the same alignment) involves use of this pedestrian crossing on Western Isles Road, some way from the roundabout, and on a road layout that does not impede fast driving.

Only pedestrian access from Old Dalnottar Road to Dumbarton Road, and even that is via a pedestrian crossing off to the left at #107094.

The end of the widened footway and transition onto an on-road painted cycle lane along Alderman Road.

Someone must have decided this layout was a good idea!

The alternative to #102065.

The Westburn Avenue shared-use footway passes a caged pedestrian crossing.

An uncontrolled crossing of the A9 in Falkirk. See also #101518.

The Partick Bus Station rebuild continues, but at least there will be a direct route onto the carriageway at Merkland Street once it's finished. The stone bases for the bus shelters were apparently imported all the way from Portugal! ... [more]

One route sign has two poles and is pointing the right way, but one of the signs sharing lamppost is pointing the wrong way. Plus a rather messy path junction.

Route signs pointing in various directions, facing people coming from the Forth & Clyde Canal at Blairdardie. Wheelchair users appear to have been forgotten about in the signs pointing to the unnamed railway station (Drumchapel).

A major road crossing, with the direct route across the dual carriageway blocked by a barrier at the far side and no dropped kerb, and only a pedestrian crossing to the left to get across to the residential roads on the far side.

Linking the two halves of Crow Road for cycling would provide a local alternative to the hostile A739 dual carriageway, but motorists' needs appear to come first.

According to my map from the council, the Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 turns left here then first right, rather than using the (rather ugly) caged crossing and the direct path to Craiglinn. But no signs.

No signs to say this is a shared-use footway, but according to my map from the council, this is where Cumbernauld Cycle Network routes 4 and 4a are to be found. The roundabout appears to be built on a different plane from the rest of the ... [more]

It appears that the roadway at Partick Bus Station is being fenced off and the first opportunity anyone cycling past the entrance to Partick station will have to access the roadway in Merkland Street will be at the crossing to the right (se ... [more]

The Partick Bus Station rebuilding project continues. It looks as if the bus station roadway is being fenced and the crossing in the foreground of this photo will be the first point that cyclists coming past Partick station entrance can acc ... [more]

I think the railings here are to keep the doorways free from blockage by car parking, rather than provide convenient cycle parking for the flats. Plenty of designated car spaces and garages, but still they are parked just anywhere.

The cycleway from the Clyde Tunnel has been blocked by a damaged guardrail. The CCTV coverage does not appear to have led to a speedy repair. The cube sign gives directions that are different from the green sign below it.

https://t.co/6CwEM6Rj1Q End of route! The road ahead leads into the town centre. The road running across the photograph is the ringroad around the town centre. The photograph in this link shows this location from the opposite direc ... [more]

Cycleway adjacent to Leicester Road.

Building works at Partick Bus Station have meant that the point where cyclists join Merkland St carriageway has now been closed, and cyclists are forced to share a narrow footway already obstructed by (unrelated) scaffolding. However, t ... [more]

The Doune Quadrant/Doune Gardens problem is still very much there.

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 when you are jealous of the railings the school have and want some to help protect your bike lane. https://t.co/BmLaHleRD1

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 Striven Gardens, west end. Unique filtering. Also unique in that it isn't blocked by a parked car like normal. https://t.co/ZTSmnVoTHF

Stroud ... not a bike park, apparently.

The inevitable result of placing a barrier in the way of the path and not diverting the path directly to the forced crossing point - a worn path across the grass. Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but is that fence panel not meant to be inst ... [more]

The north end of Brock Road has the same problem as the Brock Burn path, but is slightly nearer to the zebra crossing at the health centre.

The nearest proper pedestrian crossing to the end of the Brock Burn path is at the far side of the bus station, with continuous pedestrian guard railing all the way there.

The nearest end of the pedestrian guard railing is around the corner from the end of the Brock Burn path, where there is a traffic island crossing point.

The north end of the Brock Burn path is blocked by about 150m of continuous pedestrian guard rail. There needs to be a pedestrian crossing here to make it a viable route to the Silverburn Shopping Centre. See also #90961 and #90962.

I only found this on my second attempt at looking for it. "Glasgow's first community public bike pump", on Argyle Street in Sandyford. http://www.glasgowlive.co.uk/news/glasgow-news/glasgows-first-public-bike-pump-13193687

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.

Uncontrolled pedestrian crossing next to the Forge Retail Park's service access (see #89948) and on the left the path through Bellgrove.

A barrier across end of path through Bellgrove. After a small break at a car park serving the flats here, this path continues right the way across to Bellgrove Street. There is an uncontrolled crossing a short distance to the right, and a s ... [more]

Barriers each side of the Clyde Gateway toucan crossing still present an obstacle to anyone using Baltic Street as a through route on a bike.

Lots of barriers outside Dalmarnock Station result in people cycling on the footway in order to get to the fancy path, such as is seen in #89937.

Avant garde railing at Pollock Avenue road crossing. The traffic here is fast, but no signalised crossing has been provided. The path ahead is on the course of an old railway line to Peacock Cross.

Another footbridge across a sliproad, another 'Cyclists Dismount' sign.

Although there has been nothing to indicate that cycling is allowed on this path, the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign implies that it is allowed. The alternative is the quasi-motorway A723.

The Paisley Road protected cycletrack merges into a shared footway around the corner. The diagonal crossing is aligned for those going up and down West St, but has a signal facing anyone coming from Paisley Road, just in case someone wants ... [more]

This traffic island has a cage.

Some more cycle stands are needed in Hope Street to supplement the ones next to Central Station.

The Baltic Street alignment has been obstructed with railings both sides at the Clyde Gateway toucan crossing. This side doesn't even have a dropped kerb! See also #87992.

The way between Baltic St and the Clyde Gateway toucan crossing has been obstructed both sides with a railing. See also #87993.

A smattering of bikes locked to railings in Mongkok.

I don't think anyone has been fined for driving through this bus gate yet!

Bridge Street

No crossing to get to the riverside or NCN75 from James Watt St, and way blocked by a continuous railing. At the same time, Glasgow City Council is progressing with plans to implement a contraflow cycle facility in Blythswood St that wou ... [more]

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

@GlasgowCC Insufficient bike parking in #Shawlands - people shouldn't have to lock bikes to pedestrian barriers https://t.co/vsFWlASExI

An anti-cycling barrier in alleyway from Saucel Crescent, despite the continuous railing across the entrance on the road outside.

Route sign in Gilmour Street. Just need to get around the railings on the footway.

New guardrail already destroyed by a lawless speeding driver. http://t.co/VbI8GV6RoP

Turning off of Golspie Street onto the Langlands Road cycle track. Narrow crossing. Location: Govan, Glasgow (Scotland, United Kingdom)

One of the better pieces of cycle infrastructure in Hamilton, the toucan crossing across High Blantyre Road on Glenlee Street.

Notice reads: Health & Safety Please do not secure bikes to this railing. Either use the outside railing or the bike racks provided. This will be to keep the ramp and walkway clear.

A pedestrian entrance to the University of Liverpool in Pembroke Street.

The George Street cycleway approaching the junction where it switches sides.

The 3-stage toucan crossing at Anderston Quay that NCN 756 crosses (see also #60133)

The Fastlink dedicated bus road will not permit cycling when it finally opens, so cyclists will be forced to mix with pedestrians on the NCN 75 riverside path or with motor vehicles on the adjacent road. NCN 756 crosses here on a 3-stage ... [more]

Someone in Glasgow City Council keeps designing exceedingly poor cycle infrastructure such as this cramped caged traffic island on a split toucan crossing at the Clyde Arc bridge.

Cycle parking on Leith Walk, behind a fence. None on the opposite side of the road, e.g. outside the mini-supermarket.

Partially fenced off subsidence on path constructed under Safer Routes to Schools programme. The newer fencing has been painted black. There is cracking in the asphalt most of the way down this path.

The Auldhouse Road exit from Greenbank Park is blocked by a railing and there is no dropped kerb, although the road closure opposite on Holeburn Road has a cycle gap.

This used to be a straight across toucan crossing. Now it's an obstacle course over a split toucan at the side of the supermarket road junction.

Needlessly narrow shared-use footway on Haggs Road at side road crossing. The pedestrian guard rails have all been covered with banners, meaning small children will be completely hidden from the view of drivers. The vertical bars in the low ... [more]

A puckered railing at the junction of Clifton Road with Cherry Hinton Road.

Route sign on approach to junction, and clearly visible, unlike #53835

Having successfully given way at the works entrance on #53818, cyclists are then told to dismount to cross the road, via a caged central island.

The barrier dividing the car park from the path in Eastham Country Park has a small gap near the end to allow people through

Proper cycle parking needed outside station, and plenty space across road

Narrow, right up against a fence, poles on both sides, and straight into the waiting area for a toucan crossing. Is this what I pay my taxes for?

Damaged bikes left out on street in residential area

Bikes locked to railings due to lack of suitable storage space in flats (see also #51224)

Abandoned bike frame, rusty cycle stand, fly-tipping and general decay bringing the area down, and deterring cyclists from using stands.

No cycle parking stands provided at café in Park Road.

One of the measures done in Glasgow for the cycle racing. Railings removed and ramp down from kerb formed at exit from Kelvingrove Park. http://instagram.com/p/a6KcyiqBpl/ shows it in use.

Kissing gate and steps with awkward ramp at one side. I approached from the wrong side to use the ramp, and the central railing stopped me changing sides without backtracking. This is the Acre Drive entrance to Maryhill Park, and a conne ... [more]

This narrow footbridge over railway line has a choice of steps or ramp

Fence blocking end of path at Allander Road, forcing cyclists to squeeze through narrow gap to get to dropped kerb and onto road.

No direct access from footbridge ramp to park, forcing a detour out onto the street and back

Large car park but no cycle parking at ASDA Parkhead, so bikes get locked to this railing

Junction of old and new routes of NCN 75. No mention of what is up ramp, just a plain 'straight on' sign. Also, railing hinders access to and from Bredisholm Road, which provides a shortcut to Glasgow via Baillieston.

Railing (with white stripes - see #47279) that makes cycling through here somewhat awkward

No access to cycle track on so-called East End Regeneration Route from adjacent stopped-up streets
