A new steps and ramp access to the canal towpath is being built at the Centre81 community centre in Whitecrook. The towpath here has been resurfaced over a short distance.

Paths on both sides of the canal at Linnvale have bumpy surfaces.

The path on the north side of the Forth & Clyde Canal at Linnvale has a loose gravel surface, while the direct route to Strauss Avenue is just a grass path.

A path connecting Bearsden and Drumchapel has been kept open during the long-term water works in the area. However, the surface is not good for cycling on, and the other path nearby, from the western end of Annan Drive, would probably be a ... [more]

Access between Drumchapel and Bearsden has been maintained during the long-term water works. The surface of the temporary path is stones and not good for cycling on. However, the path south (to the right) has been closed since it goes throu ... [more]

The Drumchapel Way path surface is poor.

The path does not have a proper built surface.

The footway is meant to be shared-use, but is not signed as such, and is covered in debris from the disintegrating road surface. This provides a cycle route between the Clyde Tunnel and some entrances to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

The riverside path in Renfrew, alongside the River Cart. The concrete panels give way to asphalt for the rest of the path's length to Inchinnan Road.

The surface of the riverside path changes from asphalt to concrete panels. One or two of them are slightly out of alignment here and there, although not a serious problem.

A section of tree root damage on the riverside path, next to the golf course. There was another smaller area of tree root damage over next to the River Cart.

This footway was once upgraded to a shared-use cycle route.

Still surfacing work outstanding at the south end of the Garscube Road cycle track.

A new section of cycleway has appeared on Craighall Road and the correct Cycleway tactile slabs have been used. I'm going to have to have another look at that central dividing strip though. The surface has been left incomplete.

A short diversion around some ongoing work, but the uneven surface and narrow width make it rather awkward to negotiate.

The Garscadden Way and path to the Drumchapel Way is presently blocked by Scottish Water works, but the path to Annan Drive has been kept open. Conon Avenue has now reopened.

The path from Canniesburn Road going over to join the Garscadden Way and Drumchapel Way.

A poor surface on the path the Glasgow to Cumbernauld cycle route is signed along in Glenconner Park. With a little bit of work it could even be quite nice, although the person cycling along the footway of Royston Road in the background wou ... [more]

The resurfaced section of the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath will tie into the work at Stockingfield Junction, where a bridge is being built across the canal.

Although the main towpath has been resurfaced, nothing has been done about the poor connection from the towpath to the path to Vaila Street. In addition to local access, this is important for making connections between the canal and Summers ... [more]

A section of Forth & Clyde Canal towpath has been resurfaced, between Cadder and Stockingfield.

Slow progress on the Old Dumbarton Road cycle track. The corduroy tacile paving is incorrect.

The path from Shields Road and Scotland Street runs alongside the northernmost section of Shields Road before rejoining the road. The asphalt strip gets progressively narrower, forcing everyone onto the cobbles.

The section of cycle track on the traffic island between Pollokshaws Road and Cathcart Road has been marked with red surface, unlike anything else in the South City Way to date. Work continues.

The cycle track linking Stockwell Place to Dunlop Street, providing an alternative route for a banned turn from Stockwell Street into Clyde Street, and a local link between parts of Howard Street and Dunlop Street. The green surface is b ... [more]

Regular parking spot in the pop-up cycle lane in Bilsland Drive, and also further drainage issues.

Drainage problems on pop-up cycle lane in Bilsland Drive at toucan crossing next to Ruchill Park.

Drainage problems on pop-up cycle lane oon Bilsland Drive.

Bumpy path at the riverside.

Ponding and tree root damage on the rebuilt section of canal path at Blairdardie.

The lack of sweeping on the canal path means the LED catseyes are starting to disappear into the extended verge.

Collapsing and muddy tactile paving at the M8 on-slip toucan crossing at Craighall Road.

Grit from disintegrating road surface covering cycle lane. But makes seeing several sets of bike tyre tracks easier.

Poor lumpy asphalt surface on bridge over Forth & Clyde Canal.

Deteriorating road surface beyond the mini-roundabout on Alderman Road. The cycle lane appears to be in the poorest of condition compared to the surrounding road surface.

Deteriorating road surface on much of the Alderman Road cycle lanes. The opportunity could be used to swap the parking and cycle lanes about, which would result in less wear and tear on the cycle lane in future.

The southern end of the Garscube Road cycle track still hasn't been completed, but is at least now rideable. Top surface is all that is required. Further north, the path is complete up until Sawmillfield Street, with work in progress at the ... [more]

The new cycle track along Old Dumbarton Road. In addition to the top surface (in the foreground) not being machine laid, the tactiles are incorrect Corduroy/Hazard type and not the Tramlines/Cycleway type. Being at the foot of a hill, these ... [more]

The new cycle track on Old Dumbarton Road has expensive stone kerbs and divider strips, but the top surface has not been machine laid, so is lumpy and uneven. Disappointing. The cycle track replaces on-street metered parking.

The surface of Lymburn Street is rather bumpy, with poorly relaid cobbles.

One of several nasty breaks in the asphalt on the path between Caldercuilt Road and Acre Road.

Terrible surface here, just where you have to ride to avoid dooring and overtaking motor vehicles

A poor surface in the University Avenue cycle lane, and incursion by a car driver.

Messy obstructed cycleway on Douglas Street, with a totally inappropriate surface. Just like the one on Waterloo Street to the left (see #95475 and #95476).

The ramp at Glendinning Road is still steep and poorly surfaced. There's plenty of room here for a decent ramp to be built.

No dropped kerb at the start of a path connecting Collina Street near new housing development to the Forth & Clyde Canal and Maryhill Road. The path is in poor condition and has some shallow steps in it too.

@MCRCycleSam @RantyHighwayman @CyclingSurgeon @theJeremyVine I guess we should also factor in that you’ll have double deckers coming straight at nearly on the line... 😢 https://t.co/6dNqsRA9eY [See also #139326]

The surface of the path between Prospecthill Circus and Toryglen Road in Rutherglen has still not been improved. This would form a useful alternative to the main Prospecthill Road, including for commuting. But not in this state.

The path through the woods at Cathkin is usable on this section, but some parts are too steep, including crossfall, to cycle all the way. The path ends before the connection to Burnside Road, so it is necessary to rejoin the busy Cathkin Ro ... [more]

I had intended to head west through to the Cathkin Braes mountain biking site, but the path was too muddy to cycle, so I headed in the opposite direction instead.

The track from Markethill Road to South Cathkin Farm passes the entrance to the former quarry and landfill site, and the surface quality only gets worse from here onwards. Large muddy puddles, and best to avoid. The muddy track joins asphal ... [more]

Poor quality path in a park signed as shared use.

The Queensway footway changes from asphalt to slabs, and shimmies to the side slightly. The drainage is poor.

A missing section of asphalt on the Glen Road path.

Anyone wanting to avoid the traffic on Argyle Street by using the route in #113424 is faced with this poor quality back lane to get to Corunna Street. Watch out for glass!

The path surface has become mud on this short section.

Path rebuilding work in progress.

Path rebuilding in progress.

One of the signs is clearly not pointing the right way, and the surface is poor, but the path behind the camera is being rebuilt (see #113011).

A big hole in the path between the bollards, and evidence of flooding and poor drainage.

I doubt the Dutch would design the path this way.

Tree root damage on the path alongside Ben Nevis Road.

Tree root damage on the path alongside Ben Nevis Road.

Surface repairs to NCN7 alongside the White Cart Water.

An old speed limit sign on the path from Strathcarron Drive to Dykebar Hospital.

A very poor surface on the path from Strathcarron Drive to Dykebar Hospital.

A very poor surface on the path from Dykebar Hospital to Strathcarron Drive, with raised edges creating a trip hazard and hazard for bike tyres.

A poor transition between one section of riverside path and another, which could be made much smoother to allow users to concentrate on not hitting the posts instead.

A poor change of surface on the path from Crookston Road into Rosshall Park.

A terrible change of surface on the path from Rosshall Park to Crookston Road. Mind how you go!

On the left, the Garscadden Way, leading to the Drumchapel Way, and on the right, the path through to Annan Drive. Both could do with some proper path building works.

The narrow and unsurfaced path from Heather Park towards the Craigdhu Wedge is not particularly suitable for cycling, although it is popular with dog walkers.

A damaged directions sign at the path junction near Cromarty Crescent. The path to the right is unsurfaced.

Very muddy, slippery surface when wet

Was I imaging in #107165 that this path was being upgraded?

The path has no connection to Barrangary Road, but instead curves around and the first connection with the road network is at Forge Crescent.

A short path off from the main path to a cannon. This area used to be home to the Bishopton Royal Ordnance Factory.

After a brief piece of asphalt at the railway access point, the path reverts to a soggy soft surface for the unexpectedly steep climb.

A newly built soggy wet path alongside the railway in the southern part of Dargavel.

A soggy wet path to Bishopton station from the new housing development. All of the roads have asphalt or paved surfaces, so why this for the main path?

A soggy wet path from Bishopton station to southern Dargavel.

Clear access to the path to the southern part of Dargavel, but why does the asphalt not continue?

The broken surface makes for a bumpy ride.

Unfinished trenching work at the Kelpies Marina.

Molehills in the asphalt?

The asphalt surface has ended as the HArTT cycle path nears the River Carron.

A barrier at the Cumbernauld Road bridge and crossing on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, but no asphalt for the bypass gap.

A decrepit shared footway approaching the uncontrolled crossing across the High Common Road sliproad from Strathaven Road. Room for improvement.

The cycle path between the Murrayhill underpass and Mungo Park is in a rather poor condition.

A poor quality surface at the start of the Cleddans Burn path, part of the Garscadden Way cycle route and Drumchapel Way walking route. The footway on the Goals access road swaps from the north to the south side at this point.

Poor condition asphalt path and damaged marker post on the Drumchapel Way.

The Grantchester Meadows path just doesn't get any better. This is the condition after the County Council have allegedly "fixed" it. All it needs is a tarmac path between the end of the surfaced road to the start of the surfaced path. I am ... [more]

End of the asphalt as the path heads towards the Westquarter Burn.

The road surface at the end of Callendar Boulevard is even worse than this photograph! There is a painted cycle lane on the left side of the carriageway, but not the right.

A rough, stony track across a former opencast mining site, with a bit of a climb towards the end, but more direct than the road around the site.

The connection to NCN7 at Sandholm Terrace is formed with horrible concrete blocks with gaps in between.

If it's not for cars then it's alright to park across. Still no surfaced connection to NCN7.

This is what happens when you resurface the car driving lane and not the cycle lane. A few years later and the surface has deteriorated so much that it can barely support the road markings.
