Was I imagining that this road got resurfaced last year? A very poor surface on a road that supposedly is the flagship Colleges Cycle Route. See #186854.

[Image taken 11.1.23] Water Lane, junction with Clifton Moor Gate. York. Context: #183195. Very disappointing this remains unresolved. Get wet feet at the start of your day or shift, on your way to school/work, etc, and you have wet feet … [more]

Traffic signals out again on Craighall Road. Not easy to see approaching traffic around the bend! The cycleway crosses here to get to the canal path at Speirs Wharf.

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.

Contactless method of activating the crossing.

New planters, and the toucan crossing is now free from obstruction. However, the tiny 'No Entry' on the bollard on the right is incorrect because this is just the way you would pass to turn right into the Kelvingrove Art Gallery grounds.

Revised road and Bears Way cycleway layout at Allander Leisure Centre access road, which now also serves as access to a couple of residential developments. The crossing seen in #72183 has been replaced by a toucan crossing associated with … [more]

A toucan crossing on Main Street, Milngavie, where the Bears Way cycleway crosses from one side to the other, missing one of the beg button call boxes. It also took so long for the lights to change that I found a gap in traffic on this busy … [more]

Shared path signal crossing with ‘begging-button’. Prioritises cars within the sensor zone of the signal, otherwise changes immediately.

Most folk may cross without making use of the toucan crossing in Kelvin Way, but that's no reason to block the crossing with planters. This raises accessibility issues.

A new crossing at the turn into Worts Causeway from Babraham Road.

While the two crossings on Maryhill Road are pedestrian crossings, the crossing on the Hopehill Road side of the junction is a toucan crossing.

'Cycles only' on University Avenue, apparently.

[Image taken 23.4.22] Malton Road close to junction with New Lane, Huntington, York. A toucan crossing. Access is tricky (see: #181985) and you have to know it is here. I didn't. I only saw it existed a week ago when someone cycled over … [more]

An off-side cycle lane on Hopehill Road. I'm not sure what this is for.

Toucan crossing carrying the NCN26 / Strawberry Line over the A370 / Weston Road in Congresbury. The photo shows the crossing and the ramps up to the path as it continues along the embankment beside the Congresbury Yeo River. Note that the … [more]

Norton Radstock Greenway exit onto A367 Bath Road in Radstock. Although it is shared path and exits onto a shared pavement the design is not bad. There is a barrier between the path and road to prevent young children using the path from … [more]

The route sign says "Primary School" but the dropped kerb at the junction is of poor quality, with no obvious dropped kerb on the other side of the road closure in Dowanhill Street. The Colleges Route cycle lane has been made narrower and … [more]

I'm still not sure what purpose this isolated section of cycletrack is for.

Several planters on Kelvin Way have been pushed aside, some of them are obstructing the cycleway. Fly parking is occurring without enforcement.

The traffic signals poles have been damaged.

The toucan crossing midway along North Canal Bank Street has been installed, but the tactile paving is still the incorrect corduroy (hazard) rather than the cycleway type. The top surface for both the cycleway and carriageway remains to be … [more]

a cyclist leant their bike here. Only explanation https://t.co/vmLh9GKEKP

The toucan crossing across Castlebank Street at the Glasgow Harbour development is missing its red man and green cycle lights. The road surface is also badly worn.

Looking towards #173895, this is where the Loch Lomond Railway Path used to start. Now the gap in the underpass wall has been filled in and the former railway embankment demolished, so NCN7 crosses Castlebank Street using this toucan … [more]

The footway on the north side of Castlebank Street resumes, but is fenced off just west of the toucan crossing (as seen in #173896). That doesn't stop people using it, and a worn desire line is visible in the grass verge too. NCN7 crosses … [more]

The toucan crossing is used to follow the cycle route which continues on the footway of the other side of South Street, but there is a clear desire line for staying on this side. There is a short break before the footway resumes at Ferryden … [more]

The council has fenced off the former cycle off-slip from the Clyde Arc bridge at the NCN75 toucan crossing. This helped those making right turns by allowing cyclists to leave the carriageway and make the turn with the assistance of the … [more]

If a gap wasn't possible opposite James Watt Street (see #173269), a cycle slip lane onto the central reservation island would be useful to enable a right turn onto the toucan crossing across the opposite carriageway to be made, and then … [more]

The lack of a connection from James Watt Street to the riverside NCN75 path and the Tradeston Bridge (visible background left) continues to make this a difficult place to cycle. A gap through the kerb and railing on the far side of the … [more]

There is no easy way to get to the start of the Sauchiehall Street cycleway at Charing Cross. From this painted lane a left turn into the motorway sliproad is required to get to the dropped kerb at the toucan crossing. There is nothing to … [more]

I noticed this dropped kerb at the Advance Stop Line box and investigated whether it was installed to aid cycling from St George's Road to the toucan crossing chain through the junction, but no, it was left over from a pedestrian crossing … [more]

Council destination sign all arms pointing the wrong way, and narrow green strip cycleway poorly implemented and signed.

Obstructive barrier on signed cycle path at toucan crossing across Menteith Avenue. What a mess!

Sighthill regeneration continues. From the width of this path, and the toucan crossings at the junction, it appears it may be a shared-use path in place of the Glasgow to Cumbernauld cycle route path that used to be here.

Another view of #172734, showing the narrow footway between the toucan crossing and the boundary fence.

Not a promising look for the Sighthill "cycling village". A toucan crossing with not even a bike's length between the kerb and the fence at the back of the footway. See also #172813.

Subsiding pedestrian crossing tactiles at toucan crossing in Dyke Road.

Despite the provision of a sign proudly pointing this way, there is still no dropped kerb to allow cyclists proper smooth access onto the carriageway of Springburn Way from the toucan crossing across Atlas Road. Not pictured, but while I … [more]

The toucan crossing gives access to the protected South West Cityway cycle route on Shields Road.

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 footway of Hillington Road (at least part of which is shared-use) is loosing width to the bush, which will need cut back at some point. The toucan crossing connects Penilee and Hillington as part of a minimal signage quietway style … [more]

The upgraded M77 motorway sliproad crossing at Dumbreck Road. However, the footway beyond is still quite narrow, and the pop-up cycle lane seeks to address this.

The funding sign for the Dumbreck Road/Mosspark Boulevard junction improvements, that included a staggered toucan crossing and footway upgrade to shared-use. This project linked up the Haggs Road/Dumbreck Road shared footway and NCN7/75 to … [more]

The western footway of Dumbreck Road is now shared-use as far as the Mosspark Boulevard junction, although the only sign to confirm this appears to be the low-level green sign seen on the railings in the background.

The cycle traffic signals at Dargarvel Avenue, at the Dumbreck Road/Dumbreck Avenue junction. The junction also has toucan crossings around two sides. The shapes of the gaps do not make it easy to make movements straight across the … [more]

A toucan crossing across the Clydeside Expressway sliproad, but not across Finnieston Street. Nothing to say any footway is legal for cycling. The toucan crossing is one of a chain of toucan crossings leading to the path to Minerva Street.

Toucan crossings all around the junction, but are any of the footways actually legal to cycle on? In any case, that street lighting column is blocking the footway.

Corkerhill Road, with a cycle lane for northbound cyclists, and a toucan crossing for those going via Pollok Park (following NCN7 and NCN75). Protection of the cycle lane by means of armadillos starts after the bus stop.

Linthaugh Terrace meets Corkerhill Road, where NCN7 and NCN75 cross over to the footway on the far side of the dual carriageway. If not going via Pollok Park, northbound cyclists should stay on this side where there is a (now protected) … [more]
