A cover on one of the traffic signals at the Robroyston motorway junction sliproad, even though the toucan crossing is working and uncovered.

A cover over one of the traffic signals at the partly signalised roundabout at the M80 Robroyston junction at Saughs Road.

A route sign for the Trans Pennine Trail at Corporation Street.

A cycle contraflow on the High Street (without the necessary 'except cycles' plates), and some real world cycling.

A pedestrian crossing and roundabout at the top of Corporation Street.

A cycle track leading to Piccadilly station, but not for left turns into Ducie Street.

The straight across access from the Berryknowes Road flats to Kingsland Drive (see also #112402) has been blocked off, including to cycles. The turning head is used for fly car parking.

The straight across access from Kingsland Drive into the road in front of the Berryknowes Road flats has been closed off, without exempting cycles.

The footway markings on Leverndale Road end into an Advance Stop Line at the Crookston Road junction. There is no cycle provision on the main road. If there is moving traffic, this layout means cyclists waiting until the lights turn red ... [more]

Cycle lanes approaching the Crookston Road junction.

A tiny notice explaining how Advance Stop Lines work to drivers. I can't imagine many notice this, or take the time to read it.

Crookston shops on Barrhead Road.

Another dual carriageway road (three lanes here) in Hereford, near the railway station.

A complex junction of Canal Road, Valley Road, Balme Street and the goods ramp from the Broadway shopping centre. The traffic signals seemed to be quite responsive to the limited traffic I saw at the time.

The cycle crossing across the junction of Canal Road, Valley Road and Balme Street.

A short piece of cycle lane, with a bus stop unusually in the middle of the junction, on Godwin Street.

A bus lane for right turns, forbidden to other traffic.

Forge Crescent meets Barrangary Road. You just have to know that the cycling provision is on the footway to the left and right, and to get onto it at the toucan crossing just beyond the Advance Stop Line.

A split toucan crossing across A749 dual carriageway for NCN756 to get to Nerston village en route to Rutherglen and Glasgow.

Motorists: Don't U-turn Cyclists: U-turn The A749 crossing on NCN756 outside the Kingsgate Retail Park, before the cycle route makes its way through Nerston village.

Street lights in Edirne, Turkey, indicate which routes are available (also on the red phase).

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

Car park entrance on Rothesay Street. Also leads to the cycle parking at #107435.

Where now? Again, missing any signage, East Kilbride's cycle route 1 goes onto what looks like a footway at the far side of the junction, which is a path that leads to an underpass at the Righead Roundabout.

Duntocher Road approaching the Kilbowie Roundabout, with access to the cycleway around the roundabout.

Kilbowie Road northbound approaching the Kilbowie Roundabout, including an access to the cycleway around the roundabout. A flush kerb (see #107322) was installed at each of the accesses to the cycleway at the insistence of the local cycling ... [more]

A 'No Cycling' sign on what is now the much vaunted Clydebank North Circular Link cycleway alongside the A82 dual carriageway.

A toucan crossing over the A82 at the Kilbowie Roundabout. Are these the lowest call boxes ever, particularly on the far side?

The Kilbowie Roundabout cycleway alongside the A82. Cross here to go south or to use the shared footway on the other side of the dual carriageway, or rejoin the eastbound carriageway.

The start of the Kilbowie Roundabout cycleway when coming from Kilbowie Road southbound. One presumes that the 'No Stopping Clearway' and 'Give Way to Pedestrians' signs aren't aimed at the same roaduser, even though they are mounted one ... [more]

I waited 4 sequences of Argyle st/ Jamaica st🚦- this remained red (having dodged a taxi who’d pulled in and parked on the cycle lane). We simply won’t shift people to cycling if even the limited infrastructure doesn’t work @Glasgow ... [more]

The NCN76 turn from Bo'ness Road into Park Road is quickly blocked by traffic queuing at the Abbots Road traffic signals. No signage for the route to Grangemouth oil refinery to the right.

No right turn, with no exemption for cycling.

Bus priority signals, accessed via a left turn lane that gets a green before the straight ahead direction. But no cycling in the bus lane.

Milton Keynes NCN51 Faded red lane and markings

I initially thought this was some kind of time-restricted 'No Entry' but on closer inspection the plate underneath is for loading restrictions.

A major junction in Falkirk town centre. The road ahead on the left is restricted for motor vehicles to local buses and loading (see #101534).

Bus priority in Falkirk doesn't extend as far as traffic signal detection.

Upper Newmarket Street is restricted for motor vehicles to loading and local bus services.

A short section on-road at Bankside to avoid the steps in #101138.

The traffic signals on Alderman Road have acquired a cycle advance green of about 6 seconds before the full green in one direction, plus a toucan crossing on this side for those cycling down the footway of Lincoln Avenue.

The Advance Stop Line box has acquired a stop line across the cycle lane too.

The new cycleway on Lincoln Avenue. If you don't want to turn left into Archerhill Road you need to leave the cycleway, but there's nothing to say this.

The new cycle track in Archerhill Road turns right into Lincoln Avenue.

The new cycle track on Archerhill Road turns into Lincoln Avenue and is no use for getting to Knightswood Cross or Anniesland.

A route sign pointing in an ambiguous direction, and no clue as to how one should rejoin the carriageway. All of the crossings are for pedestrians only. The shared-use footway does continue around the corner to the left into Kirkshaws Road.

The road layout at the Govan Road/Golspie St junction due to the Fastlink busway. Not particularly cycle friendly.

Behind me is a shared-use footway sign. Across the junction and to the right is an "End of Cycle Route" sign. Are they related? Is this shared-use footway nothing to do with the one a little distance along Govan Road at #99434? But still th ... [more]

The footway across the far side of the junction is shared use, but the crossing is for pedestrians only. But the previous shared-use sign was back at #99434. Is this one continuous route or two unrelated shared-use footways? The drainage ... [more]

A funders' sign for whatever aspect of this road layout they wish to trumpet about. Fastlink maybe or the cycle route? There isn't any sign to say whether or not the footway here is shared use. There was a sign at #99434 and there's one jus ... [more]

Although there are items of cycling paraphernalia back at Carnoustie Street and at Houston Street, this crossing is not a toucan crossing on the path in between the two locations. The space on the central reservation is somewhat restrict ... [more]

This traffic island needs a gap to allow signalled cycle access between the Tradeston Bridge and York Street. It could also be used for right turns from Broomielaw (for those coming from Blythswood St and James Watt St) towards the Tradesto ... [more]

The contraflow lane on Gordon Street, with a cargobike and a hire bike in use.

When the Polmadie Bridge is rebuilt, the route to Glasgow Green will be straight ahead, across the split toucan crossing and down the ramp to Old Polmadie Road.

The proposed cycleway for Jura Street will be on the left side, and end at a toucan crossing across Paisley Road West to Bellahouston Park. So this door-zone cycle lane will be removed.

New red cycle lights and low level miniature lights on the Argyle Street contraflow lane.

The roundabout now includes a shortcut for Fastlink buses only. No cycling through this! Also, the traffic signals for the bus gate have been replaced by a Give Way.

Waiting for the lights in Elderslie Street.

A toucan crossing to cross the A7 in Newtongrange.

Roadworks on the shared-use footway on Moss Road.

A split toucan crossing across the western hospital entrance on Govan Road, but no obvious signs allowing cycling on the footway, and the eastern entrance a short distance away has ordinary pedestrian-only signals.

As part of the bus priority, buses are allowed to turn right (into the bus station) from the left-hand lane, but the traffic signals all along the Fastlink route do not seem to change with the approach of buses.

If cycling isn't allowed on the footway on this side of Shieldhall Road, then why the toucan crossing?

Four toucan crossings to reach the far side of Fairhill Avenue, with unresponsive traffic signals, and green on different phases. The Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route starts here, at its unsigned junction with the Corkerh ... [more]

Three toucan crossings to reach the far side of Barrhead Road, with unresponsive traffic signals, and green on different phases, so potentially a lot of waiting, unless you spot a gap in the traffic and just go on red. The Silverburn to ... [more]

As soon as the protected cycle lane finishes, the girl in #90598 goes onto the footway. And I don't blame her.

The junction before the start of the protected cycle lanes on Hamilton Road.

The Cathkin Relief Road's cyclepath looks more and more like an ordinary footway the further north it gets. But still has markings to remind users. No shared-use signage anywhere.

I'm not sure what the purpose of this cycle lane is.

Glasgow's first Advance Green cycle light, allowing right turns into Bridge Street for a few seconds before motor traffic gets the green light to do likewise.

A busy shared-use footway outside Cambuslang station.

Posts, one of them seemingly just for the hell of it! All three cars were driven through the second red light as well.

The route just ends at the traffic signals before the M74 off-ramp junction, with a Give Way into the Advance Stop Line. It's hard to see any logic as to when cycle facilities are provided here. Westbound it is to cross the off-ramp, with n ... [more]

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]

The Territorial Army Centre sign has been moved from the right to the left side of the shared-use footway. The cycle lane on the road leaves the adjacent lane too narrow for the traffic using it. No mention that the 74 route turns left at t ... [more]

The cycle lane can only be accessed by going across the footway, but watch out for the raised kerb at the end. Only the kerb at the footway side is dropped. (See also #88922)

I don't know what the designer thought would happen here.

A decaying cycle marking on Edinburgh Road. There is so much potential for a protected cycle facility along the full length of Edinburgh Road, but this is about all there is apart from some ASLs.

The stop-start cycle lane starts again under the parked car at the right of the picture.

Just when the road gets to a narrow bit on a slight climb, the cycle lane stops briefly.

It seems the designer expects cyclists to cross to the park using the toucan crossing away to the right, rather than crossing the centre of the junction. Coming from the park there are no push-buttons for the crossing at the park gate.

A new pinch-point in Oswald St to look out for cycling, which is also successful in trapping buses in the bus stop. And useless Advance Stop Line.

The original full size cycle traffic signals seen in #72137 have been replaced with miniature ones.

Right turn in two stages. Or play chicken with four lanes of traffic. #glasgowcycling https://t.co/HjgOdnKF7P [Ahead Only signs mean that right turn can only be made by the two-stage route.]

The end of the inexplicable and abandoned cycleway on Saracen Street (see also #83824). Are cyclists expected to bump the kerb and use the ASL feeder?

Leeds City Centre Leeds City Centre - cycle lanes. if used please credit www.hotelmetleeds.co.uk

The Clyde Street cycleway approaching the George V Bridge crossing.

The Clyde Street cycleway approaching crossing across to Carlton Place.

I'm guessing that Jamaica Street will be resurfaced when the contraflow bus lane is abolished (and a new one is created in Midland Street). But in the meantime, some gas covers need attention, as does the dip at the stop line.

The end of the new protected cycle lane across Glasgow Bridge. Only a poor quality painted cycle lane continues along Bridge Street, and apparently no provision for left or right turns onto the East-West NCN756 which crosses the road at the ... [more]

The cycle routes from the council offices to Dumbarton's two railway stations appear to cross the A82 on this split pedestrian crossing, and use the narrow footway on the far side. No attempt has been made to actually provide a proper cycle ... [more]

A piece of cycle lane that has survived.

I'm not sure this should be like this!

Signed cycle route between Renfrewshire House and NCN7, crossing Causeyside Street.

The Toucan crossing linking Viables Industrial Estate with Hatch Warren Way cycle path Location: , Cliddesden (England, United Kingdom) This Toucan crossing, in common with others in Basingstoke, is passive. In rush hour, you can be ... [more]

No Entry except trams and cycles, straight ahead into Exchange Square. The painted cycle lane appears to encourage cyclists to risk left hooks rather than cycling closer to the tramlines. The road-width decreases suddenly just behind the ... [more]

No Left Turn except cycles, near Exchange Square (see also #72729).

A facility has been provided to allow cyclists to head straight up Water Street for a bit, to avoid the gyratory at Chapel Street.

Cycles allowed to make right turn outside Oxford Road station into Whitworth Street West (and thus access Oxford Street), when other vehicles restricted to left turn only.

Apart from the incorrect word 'STOP' and the flooding, this is not bad. The signals even seem to change before too long as well (which is rather better than the Wallace Street toucan crossing). The South-West City Way cycle route switche ... [more]
