Shows new raised-table junction (Canterbury St/Histon Rd) with continuous kerb along Histon Road. Local resident felt the junction was 'invisible' (and therefore dangerous).

The track from the playing fields car park (see #170045) arrives at Guidmans Road just short of the path northwards on the other side of the road. However, the road is one-way.

What is the point of these cyclelanes? Is it just a tickbox exercise for the local authorities, claiming they are spending money on cycle infrastructure? It's a complete waste of time.

The new road between Clydebank College and Cable Depot road. This section is as yet unopened, but I saw a few people on bikes using it. At this end, it connects with NCN7. There are bus stops, but no cycle facilities along the road.

A section of new road linking Cable Depot Road to the Clydebank College area. This section is as yet unopened. Here the road is raised to footway level, and corduroy tactiles are used to mark the limit of the carriageway.

A poorly designed corner on junction at Cable Depot Road. The verge and tactile paving is being run over by vehicular traffic.

A new road parallel to Dumbarton Road, connecting Cable Depot Road to the area around Clydebank College. I don't know what bus service they expect will use this road once open completely, since this road effectively bypasses the town centre ... [more]

[Image taken 18.2.21] York, Wigginton Road. The Do not overtake cyclists sign is now visible but it is very close to the junction. This would seem to limit the chances of drivers seeing it and is too late on this section of Wigginton Road f ... [more]

[Image taken 18.2.21] York, Wigginton Road. Again, the Do not overtake cyclists sign would seem to have limited use being placed among a line of other signs, and therefore obscured. See also: #164311, #164310, #164312, #164313, #164315

[Image taken 18.2.21] York, Wigginton Road. Only at this point do road users have a chance of seeing the Do not overtake cyclists sign. But this location is too late to make a difference. Plus drivers have had so many signs with so many mes ... [more]

[Image taken 18.2.21] York, Wigginton Road. Too many signs. Messages get lost. The Do not overtake cyclists sign is still completely obscured at this point and therefore has no value. See also: #164311, #164310, #164313, #164314, #164315

Oncoming Vehicle, almost constant parking either side, too narrow to pass, not kid friendly

Van parked on the pavement blocking visibility of junction with Muriel Road

Any wonder that we struggle to keep the public behaving correctly on road when we have this LK68 CMV example. Legislation says emergency services can stop here ONLY in the event of an actual emergency. Note roadspace on side street, ... [more]

This is where the driver of this van and trailer decided to stop and have a phone call. Completely blocking the cyclepath and pavement. I had to stop and ask, then shout "hello" as he wasn't paying any attention to other traffic. Why not st ... [more]

Yet another development with spaces for cars but not bikes.

Yet another development with acres of space to manoeuvre and store cars, and no visible cycle facilities at all.

Driver of 629 FLO completely fails to drive properly and distance properly on Devonshire Road. When pointed out, they haven't got a clue what they've done wrong. https://t.co/qaG8YWlr5n

You had thought that people would work out to give space in this difficult time. Not here though. Here's @jrhoardingltd illegally blocking the cycle access across Newmarket Rd. Driving into this site through here has been expressly forbidd ... [more]

Helensburgh Cycles, at 5 West Clyde Street.

The footbridge across the railway in #113719 leads to the busy Eaglesham Road and there is no pedestrian crossing to help people get to either the bus stop or Hairmyres Hospital a short distance away.

@IanGManning @camcycle Any idea how we can deal with this blatant illegal parking? It's not isolated, it's parked up here a lot. https://t.co/WZRZZ9MRu6

A simple and unobstructed crossing at Morton Avenue.

The Hurlet junction is arranged for the convenience of motorists at the expense of all other road users.

No cycle facilities on the busy Grahamston Road, outside Dykebar Hospital.

Another example of the poor cycle infra in the Newmarket Road retail park. The driver just pulls up and stops (without indicating to traffic behind) in the cyclelane and the passenger opens the door straight away. This, combined with https ... [more]

New, very poor cycle infra in the retail park. Note "Cyclists use cyclelane only" is advisory so will confuse a lot of people. And it's a very bad place to ride, as shown by people walking in it. Just 10 metres earlier, this happened: https ... [more]

Signpost access to walkers, cyclists and horse riders. Walkers and cyclists can cross the river Bollin at the bottom of the lane. I will let one of the horse riders comment if they can get over.

This is where the surfaced section ends. You can turn and go beside the wood or through the wood onto the transPennine trail.

Bridgewater Way looking towards Seamons Road Bridge

Bridgewater Way and the canal looking towards Seamons Road Bridge.

Link from Seamons Road Bridge down to Bridgewater Way resurfaced May 2019. Push button not yet moved so no way anyone disabled can come up the ramp and push the button to go over the bridge.

Cycling on Blackbog Road, which is part of a series of quiet country roads between Palacerigg and Moodiesburn.

The Stewartfield Way cycleway crosses Macneish Way (which is the entrance to the Morrison's supermarket) here, but no help to cross this busy road, not even use of a central island due to where the dropped kerbs have been installed.

Narrow road requiring dismount or finding passing place when meeting a motor vehicle.

The old road under the old railway bridge has been closed to motor vehicles, but remains open to cycling and walking into the Kinneil Estate.

An abandoned section of old road at Kinneil, with no connecting path to the footway on the new road, although it is not too difficult to walk across the grass.

Road from the M1 to Milton Keynes

The sign on the right gives destinations and distances, but does not have an arrow, so is effectively a route confirmation sign of the type that should be provided after a junction, not before it. The destinations can be reached by turni ... [more]

Tregolls Road looking outbound in the snow

The approach at Inchwood Road to the M80 footbridge over to Kirk Place is somewhat messy.

Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 crosses the B8048 here, then crosses the side road to get to the path to Craiglinn Interchange.

According to my map from the council, Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 does not go up this busy road. I checked at the Balloch Roundabout and there were no further signs.

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.

A rough transition to the road at Kirk Place, but a barrier to ensure you don't accidentally cycle down the steps.

The Old Military Road Location: , Drumsleet (Scotland, United Kingdom) NCN 7

First time through this way for a little while. As usual, an illegally stopped vehicle, with a nearby legal space. Looks like they've been here awhile and are not leaving soon. I know you've worked hard on this @IanGManning, what more can w ... [more]

I was surprised to find that the path from London Avenue does not connect across Springfield Road to the path past the velodrome on the same alignment. A crossing is needed here.

That Advance Stop Line is sure encouraging people to cycle!

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.

The road environment in Quarry St. Scope for extending the off-road provision in Holytown to the A723, and to join up with the Ravenscraig route.
