Incorrect corduroy 'hazard' tactile paving used on Sighthill Avenue, in contrast to the correct 'cycleway' paving mostly used on Pinkston Road. This is one of the main flagship routes in Sighthill.

No cycle priority along Pinkston Road at minor side road crossing.

Incorrect corduroy 'hazard' tactile paving used on Pinkston Road at Sighthill Avenue, in contrast to the correct 'cycleway' paving used elsewhere on Pinkston Road.

A new (not even open) cycleway alongside Pinkston Road, approaching its end before the railway bridge.

No improvement on last year then. Leaf mess all over the path, and the tactile paving is still wrong.

Plenty of car parking spaces, but cycle parking hidden away on side streets. The rubber tactile matting is in a state of decay.

North Canal Bank Street back open to traffic, and there's plenty of it. The tactile paving on the cycle track is still incorrect.

The Cornwall Street cycle lane at the Fire Station. Incorrect corduroy tactile paving has been used instead of the cycleway type at the pedestrian crossing.

There is a branching cycle route along Brouster Hill as well as the continuing route along Cornwall Street. Corduroy tactile paving has been used instead of the correct cycleway type.

The Maryhill Road crossing on North Woodside Road has now been completed. Corduroy tactile paving has again been used erroneously in place of the wider gap Cycleway type. Left and right turns have been banned with the Ahead Only sign.

A zebra crossing on the Bunhouse Road cycleway. This one has tactile paving for pedestrians on one side only.

The incorrect tactile paving (corduroy in place of cycleway) is still in place on Old Dumbarton Road.

The bollards (see #172619) that were removed for the COP26 conference dinner at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery still have not been replaced, and taxi drivers are using the pedestrian crossing as a shortcut to exit the car park.

The Old Dumbarton Road cycleway still has incorrect corduroy (Hazard) tactile paving, and for some manoeuvers from Bunhouse Road, it is so close to the junction that cyclists will still be turning when crossing it. Leaf and other autumn … [more]

The badly placed lamppost referred to in #176480 causes users to end up crossing the tactile paving on a diagonal course, due to the poor planning of the cycleway alignment.

Having started with a clean slate, it is disappointing to see such a misalignment at the end of the West Street cycleway. The badly placed lamppost forces users to choose between going one side or the other, one of which means that they … [more]

The South West City Way cycleway is blocked by contractors equipment. No diversion has been signed, and going onto the road requires cyclists to disregard the mandatory turn signage at the junction to continue straight ahead on the South … [more]

The replacement Clyde Place cycleway is finally open. Here it meets the South West City Way.

A randomly pointing cycle route sign, no road markings, and a car parked on a marked tactile crossing.

The sign seen in #95295 to warn (or inform since it wasn't a warning sign) of the cycle track crossing has gone missing. Also, the tactile paving for the pedestrian crossing has several tyre tracks across it.

Slow for the incorrect tactile paving and portaloo.

The raised crossing at the junction of Old Dumbarton Road and Bunhouse Road is now in place. The tyre-grabbing incorrect tactile paving is still in place on the cycleway.

Slow progress on the North Canal Bank Street cycle track. The surface is now in on the cycle track side, but not the pedestrian side. The tactile paving is still the incorrect tyre-grabbing hazard type. This is the end of the cycle track.

Slow progress on the North Canal Bank Street cycle track. The surface is now in on the cycle track side, but not the pedestrian side. The tactile paving is still the incorrect tyre-grabbing hazard type.

The crossing to the east of Bunhouse Road has now been provided with asphalt ramps to aid pedestrians crossing. No sign of either dropped kerbs or raised crossings being installed. Incorrect corduroy (hazard) tactile paving is still in … [more]

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. … [more]

The crossings at the Old Dumbarton Road/Benalder Street junction still await raised carriageways, so these two had to bump the kerb in order to join the cycleway. UPDATE: This issue has now been resolved, see #175144.

The crossings on Old Dumbarton Road still do not have raised carriageways, so continue to hinder cycling across. However, the cycleway is still blocked further along.

The shared footway on Bunhouse Road has been rebuilt, but has not had its dividing line reinstated. The zebra crossing has a random section of tactile paving nearby with no obvious purpose.

Subsiding pedestrian crossing tactiles at toucan crossing in Dyke Road.

More debris collecting around the bus stop boarder, but correct cycleway tactiles, on Royston Road.

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road, at a bus stop boarder. Again, mud has accumulated at the bottom of the ramp, due to water running down the hill.

Two-way pop-up cycle lane on Royston Road, with a bus stop boarder. Again, the ramps are sharp and slowing down is good advice. The tactiles are of the correct type.

The end of the Hinshaw Street cycleway at the Maltbarns Street junction. The nib on the far side of the junction has a dropped kerb at the far side, if continuing along Hinshaw Street. The tactile strip is some new adhesive type I'd not … [more]

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

The cycleway on Craighall Road continues as far as the entrance to Speirs Wharf. This is not a good place to cross the road, but it looks like traffic signals will be installed.

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 raised crossing at this side access point, but not quite a continuous footway/cycleway.

Guidance Path tactiles installed just a few metres away from the correct Cycleway type.

The Garscube Road cycle track is nearing completion, but some of the tactile paving is the wrong colour for non-signalised crossings.

The gate at Robroyston station closes off the full width of the carriageway, and a dropped kerb has been provided on only one side of it to enable cyclists to join the footway and go around it. The nearest dropped kerb on the other side of … [more]

The Brockburn Road pop-up cycle lane. The ramps at the start of the bus boarders cause quite a jolt and could have been made a bit smoother. Again, Guidance Path tactile paving has been used. Contrary to the fuss being made in the press … [more]

The cycle track alongside Fountainwell Road ends here, with some Guidance Path tactile paving. It looks suspiciously like it will go no further on this side, and it crosses over to a new path on the other side of what can be quite a busy … [more]

Another helpful cycle lane [since modified]

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 toucan crossing next to Miller Street. The carriageway has been raised to the same level as the footway, and corduroy tactile paving is used to mark the edge of the footway since the kerb is flush.

South City Way at Bowman Street. In theory, it appears they expect cycles to be able to access the side road, but no dropped kerb has been provided to get from the cycle track onto the shared footway. And no provision for right turns or … [more]

Slow progress on the Old Dumbarton Road cycle track. The corduroy tacile paving is incorrect. UPDATE: The raised crossing has been installed, but the tactile paving remains incorrect. See #175266.

Transition between segregated paths and shared footway, with incorrect corduroy tactile paving.

Drainage problem on the Shields Road cycle track.

The tactiles seen in #70961 have now been installed with the bars parallel to the cycleway, but there's nothing in the regulations to say a diagonal installation is acceptable.

Fountainwell Road is presently closed in Sighthill, so St Rollox Drive is temporarily not a through road.

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

The 'cycleway' tactiles on the Sauchiehall Street cycle track are installed so the bars go across the cycle track instead of along it.

Pop-up cycle lane on Great Western Road, at bus stop near Balvie Avenue. The tactiles are of the lesser-spotted Guidance Path type, in a rubber stuck-down form. I think the pipe might be the drainage.

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]

Not a cycling route, but this footway crosses Stuart Street at an uncontrolled crossing near to the Priestknowe Roundabout, so is a bit difficult to cross at busy times. Traffic reduction through East Kilbride Village would help. The salt … [more]

Incorrect 'hazard' tactiles used for a road crossing.

The path to Bingley station crosses the entrance to the Aldi car park.

The path from the Waterloo Road car park ends at the Aldi car park, but another path connects across to Ferncliffe Road. Corduroy 'hazard' tactiles have been used in place of cycleway tactiles.

Corduroy 'hazard' tactiles used in place of 'cycleway' tactiles on NCN 7/10/72 on Castle Way. These caught my tyre slightly as I was cycling over them. Some of the paving slabs along here were a bit uneven too.

The cycle route to Stewartfield doesn't actually have any destination signs in the direction towards Stewartfield. Turn right here for Stewartfield, or continue straight ahead to #31495 where the shared footway along West Mains Road ends. … [more]

As seen in #103422, the dropped kerb on the Glenburn Road toucan crossing does not cover the full width of the tactiles.

At toucan crossing across Glenburn Road, the dropped kerb covers only about half the width of the tactiles. See close-up view at #103423.

The Wester Way ends at Westerhill Road and awaits the building of the next phase of the Bishopbriggs Relief Road, and a new path alongside the railway to Lenzie. Corduroy tactiles have been provided (not cycleway tactiles) even though this … [more]

@Warwickshire_CC @Warwick_DC who is responsible for this @bollocksinfra on Sydenham Drive, Leam? Are cyclists really supposed to dismount, walk 3m across the footpath junction, and then remount? Confusing and pointless. … [more]

I genuinely thought they would widen this extremely narrow footway as part of the Knightswood cycle route works, but no. See also #99502. At this point the shared-use footway on Dyke Road changes into a cycleway formed by orcas.

The end of the on-road cycleway on Lincoln Avenue, but where next? The fresh dropped kerb across the junction suggests that it is onto the existing footway. And another corner for collecting detritus. UPDATE: A direction sign for a … [more]

The new cycle track in Lincoln Avenue, past the new BMX centre in Knightswood Park. This bit looks like it may be prone to flooding.

The M8 cyclepath crossing the A8 sliproad and A752 at grade. No tactiles at this side.

The plans show a parallel cycle/zebra crossing to go in here. Incorrect corduroy tactiles have been used.

Corduroy tactiles were specified in the drawings and corduroy tactiles were duly installed, rather than cycleway tactiles.

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 … [more]

A mix of 'hazard' (on the pedestrian side) and 'cycleway' tactile paving slabs. They should all be the latter variety. The orientation is correct.

An 'End of Route' sign when the route clearly continues along New Craig Road. The route from here northwards uses the correct flat-topped tactiles and not the corduroy ones used across the junction southwards.

The most people I saw all day on bikes.

The sign and artwork outside the Ravenscraig sports centre.

The Ravenscraig cycleway outside the sports centre. The entrance is at the far end of the path, then double back to get to the cycle parking.

The cycleway through Ravenscraig crosses the access road to the sports centre. Corduroy 'hazard' tactiles are used on this section, rather than the correct flat-topped 'cycleway' type, and placed so close to the crossing that people on … [more]

The toucan crossing signal boxes are positioned so they face away from approaching users.

The designer of this has obviously been watching too many Danny MacAskill videos! Footway/cycleway crossing M74 off-ramp.

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]

A nice replacement bridge over the River Colne, but a pity about the tactiles being the wrong type. The sign reads "Please give way to pedestrians on bridge".

Junction crossing newly converted to toucan crossing, including some resurfacing and tactiles, but no dropped kerb for access to Springburn Way! This is meant to be a new cycle route!

The new section of cycleway along Clyde Place.

The Clyde Street cycleway approaching the George V Bridge crossing. Incorrect corduroy tactiles have been used.

The Clyde Street cycleway approaching crossing across to Carlton Place. Incorrect corduroy tactiles have been used.

The Water Street 2-way cycle track, with corduroy 'hazard' tactiles in place of the correct cycleway type.

Can I cycle or do I need to discount? @SuffolkSpokes anglia retail park http://t.co/S9ciwEZiFf

A bus stop on the shared-use footway into Chester-le-Street.

Hopefully the yellow paint marks indicate that bollards are to be installed and the 'No Entry' signs taken down. The tactiles could be corrected and the electrical cabinet moved at the same time.

Incorrect tactiles used on Shields Road at the point where the cycle track ends onto a shared-use footway at the junction with St Andrew's Road, and some upstand on part of the dropped kerb. [Updated in #166710.]

A floating bus stop on Shields Road, with incorrect tactiles and a metal strip in place of the kerb that will be slippery when wet. Plus an unnecessary and annoying wiggle in the track beyond the bus stop.

A continuous footway and a painted cycle lane on Main Street, but in poor condition.

Path Crossing Path

An 'End of Route' sign where clearly the cycle route continues across the other side of the road, and no dropped kerb on one side of the crossing. Broken tactiles becoming a trip hazard.
