No eastbound pop-up cycle lane on this part of Bilsland Drive, and a van parked in the westbound lane, despite the armadillos.

The residents have decided to park all over the cycleway.

Just after taking this a cyclist went by and narrowly avoided a car turning across the cycle path which was unable to see because of the van being 'parked' like this. Its genuinely no exaggeration to say that a cyclist will be seriously inj ... [more]

The Forth & Clyde Canal and towpath looking east. The van at the locks was parked right across the path.

This fencing has been obstructing the access to the Sighthill motorway foot and cycle bridge for some time, even though the bridge is for now still open. The fencing appears to be being used to create nothing more than a contractor's parkin ... [more]

Hey @networkrail I know you guys think you are special and can park anywhere, but you cant. This is a segregated bike lane that your vehicle is parked in, the SCW, Pollokshaws Road, one of the few in Glasgow. Get it moved. @GlasgowCC @AnnaL ... [more]

A van parked on the cycle path in Cadzow Lane, and the twisted around sign from #89517.

The cycle route turns sharp right around the back of the bush to where the van is parked. The sign is facing the wrong way, and the footway markings are worn out. It's like they are not even trying to create a decent cycle route. The mod ... [more]

The segregated cycle track on Scotland Street turns left into West Street. Anyone wanting to turn right into West Street has to turn sharply at the gap in the railings. Minimal cycle parking outside West Street subway station, and a van ... [more]
