The path over the River Kelvin bridge is very narrow, so having this fence block sightlines onto it until the last moment before knowing whether the way is clear or not is rather unhelpful. #102680 illustrates the width. With the gate left ... [more]

"Doom awaits" - a fence blocking sightlines onto the narrow path across the River Kelvin expressway bridge. No such problems for drivers on the adjacent road. See also #175173.

Unusably bad soft segregation has been put in on Argyle Street for the COP26 diversion route, and is dangerous for various reasons, including lorry parking right up to the pedestrian crossing point blocking sight lines. See also #175137.

Very poor sightlines where the path from the ramp of the footbridge and from Lindores Drive meets the Queensway footway.

Just after taking this a cyclist went by and narrowly avoided a car turning across the cycle path which was unable to see because of the van being 'parked' like this. Its genuinely no exaggeration to say that a cyclist will be seriously inj ... [more]

A corrugated underpass for the HArTT path beneath New Carron Road, but with poor sightlines at this side.

A footway next to the High Common Road/Strathaven Road sliproad. If this was upgraded to a cycleway, there's room to move the path away from the road to give better sightlines into the underpass.

Limited sight lines at the St Leonards Road traffic lights on the Calderwood Road shared footway.

'Cyclists Dismount' for going under the bridge with poor sightlines at Camelon Road. Why not just 'go slowly'?

'Cyclists Dismount' for going under the bridge with poor sightlines at Camelon Road. Why not just 'go slowly'?

Another path junction that would benefit from some upgrading work.

As also seen in #99784, this path needs a proper surface, and it could be rebuilt slightly to the side to improve sightlines at the path junction.

Some potentially useful paths here, but the route crossing this one needs a proper surface, and the opportunity could be taken to move it away from the vegetation to improve sightlines.

Poor sightlines at uncontrolled road crossing from narrow line-segregated cycleway.

On joining the shared-use footway from Aikenhead Road I almost collided with another person on a bike coming the other way at this blind corner. Poor sightlines here. Additionally, the writing on the direction sign is so small that it is ... [more]

Limited sightlines at the junction with the Innocent Railway Path (NCN1).

Many of the bridges on the Union Canal towpath have poor sightlines along the path.

Poor sightlines at bridges on the Union Canal - a common problem right along the canal's length.

Poor sightlines at Royal Mail depot (I could hear a lorry about to depart from behind the hedge) and irregular parking across a dropped kerb (although there is a second dropped kerb further round).

Poor sightlines, narrow and twisted route around traffic signal pole, and being told to dismount. Cheap and nasty cycle route in Paisley.

A rather pathetic sign, really - see #38931
