Priority over oncoming vehicles for northbound traffic at the bridge over the River Carron, and narrow gaps for drainage and maybe cycling. The road is bypassed by the newer New Carron Road.

New traffic calming on Devonshire Road, Cambridge - won't this make things worse? Taxis will constantly brake and accelerate, and will also cut in on cyclists to find the smoothest (fastest) route.

Poor capitalisation on road sign. No sign for East Kilbride cycle route 2.

A shared-use path starts on the left, to avoid the junction ahead, although NCN76 appears not to use it and instead turns at the junction, then turns again onto the next section of the same path. The dropped kerb is also far from flush, ... [more]

A painted cycle lane has been provided through the traffic calming pinch-point, but only in one direction.

Broken bollards and broken speed cushions on Netherton Road.

Pinch-point traffic-calming on North Road, Bellshill. The dropped kerbs don't appear to have been thought through to create a half decent crossing for pedestrians.

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park.

The footway of Old Polmadie Road has been designated as a shared-use footway, with hazards such as cars being reversed out of driveways, and the alternative is the road with rough surfaces through each junction. This will become the dire ... [more]

A rough surface at each junction, but the footway through this residential area has been designated shared-use, with all the hazards that might be expected, such as car drivers reversing cars out of driveways.

A rough surface for cycling, but barely noticeable in a car.

"Traffic calmed area" in Govanhill

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 The chicanes on Mansewood Rd force cyclists into the road, head on against cars. Make cycle paths to each side https://t.co/04DfR4uruH

Not sure what this is, but wasn't designed with bikes in mind & cars regularly demolish it. National cycle route 7. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/fLJMPbMu79

Traffic calming road-narrowing outside a school in Tinto Road, with broken bollards.

A rumble-strip across the entrance to Station Park, but with vertical upstand that could catch a bicycle wheel when turning across it at an angle.

The width restriction shown in #88851, and also showing the massive over-capacity of Edinburgh Road.

Traffic calming by width restrictions that force motorists to slow right down when leaving Edinburgh Road, and prevent wider vehicles using the local roads as a rat-run.

Lots of new buildings appearing in Collegelands.

Cycle bypass to mini-roundabout and traffic-calming for those going straight ahead, while NCN 7 is signed to the right for the Low Green path. The footway is also signed as shared-use. Take your pick.

Cycle bypass to traffic-calming, but vulnerable to blockage by car parking.

short steep humps - extremely uncomfortable to ride over

Woolston Park greenway crosses Grren Lane on a flat topped hump. The ramps are at a gentle angle so it is comfortable to cycle along the road.

'S' shaped flat topped road hump. It is designed to give a smoother ride for buses - the wider spaced wheels use the gentler ramps while cars have to slow down for the steeper section. Cyclists also benefit and can ride on the gentle part o ... [more]

This path isn't part of Cumbernauld's cycle network, but it is plagued with barriers at every minor road crossing. The raised crossing might have been better installed in line with the path and made into a zebra crossing.

Traffic-calming by chicane in Croy on Cumbernauld Cycle Route 1.

Traffic calming by pinch-point and restrictions on through traffic in Front Street.

Hamilton Road appears to be quite a busy rat-run, and traffic calming has been provided by means of chicanes. Advisory cycle lanes have been painted in one direction through these chicanes. This appears to encourage motorists to overtake cy ... [more]

An advisory cycle lane painted around one side of a traffic-calming chicane. Is this to encourage motorists to overtake cyclists in the chicane? A wider view of this location is at #70529.

The traffic calming on Hamilton Road is by means of chicanes. Cycle lanes have been painted in one direction through these chicanes.

During a break in the railway path, NCN 23 utilises this lane which has unmarked speed humps at intervals along it.

A traffic-calming chicane on The Duver, with a narrow gap for bikes. Going around the chicane looked easier than using the gap.

Speed hump on Chilling Lane

Cycle path alongside traffic-calmed road.

A mandatory cycle lane on Myrtle Street, approaching segregated traffic signals. Traffic is busier on the other side of the junction, but no cycle facilities have been provided for the opposite direction.

Long speed cushions on Princes Parade.

Watch out for that door!

Cycle lanes on McDonald Road, with speed hump.

Traffic calming by cobbled speed cushion!

Lots of signs at the end of Wettenhall Road - oh and some bikes parked on the footway.

New much flatter speed bump. In fact this is so flat you barely notice - much better for bikes than the older models along here.

Speed bump in Catharine Street. Their steep edges are perfect for ejecting the contents of bicycle baskets into the road - for the uninitiated.

Traffic calming and a climbing wall that evokes stonehenge (at least it did to me on this occasion).

Traffic calming by chicane in Eastham

'Traffic calmed area' - Really? In what way? This must be a very important sign, since it has been provided with a light!

A very narrow cycle bypass to the traffic calming chicane at the entrance to Hale Village

A traffic-calming measure to reduce speed and rat-running, motor vehicles have to slow to a crawl to negotiate the link between the two roads, but not a problem to get through on a bike.

Traffic calming by chicane on NCN 75 in Airdrie

Line-segregated shared-use footway in Hillington Park. The route switches sides ahead (see #47473) but this raised junction traffic calming would make a better location to cross, since motor traffic slows down here.

Shared-use footway switches sides, close to roundabout, but why not cross at the raised junction traffic calming (see #47474) a short distance along the road, where cars are slowing down?

Traffic-calming by chicane. Cars parked everywhere.

Upstand on raised crossing at entrance to Bellahouston Drive on Paisley Road West. Typical of many similar structures installed as part of the Route Action Plan programme.

Raised table traffic calming

Seymour Street How stupid to put this raised table ten metres away from Mill Road! It should be inline with the footway there.
