The Boquhanran Road underpass beneath the Forth & Clyde Canal. I'm sure the road network would still function if this was shut to motor traffic and a more suitable surface laid for safer cycling.

An underpass with steps linking the two parts of Boquhanran Road beneath the railway. Unlikely to ever be made accessible, I guess. Duntocher Road is the nearest alternative crossing.

A dropped kerb is still required at both ends of the path connecting the Clydebank Business Park and Singer Road.

Toucan crossing across Mosspark Boulevard to reach the Dumbreck Road shared footway route across the railway and motorway bridge, heading towards Pollok Country Park. If coming from the west, the grass separates the shared path from the ... [more]

The path alongside Bellahouston Park and Mosspark Boulevard leads directly to the toucan crossing across Dumbreck Road to Fleurs Avenue, but there is no link across the grass to the new toucan crossing across Mosspark Boulevard to join the ... [more]

A dropped kerb and diagonal path over to the cycle path alongside Bellahouston Park. It's completed unsigned and unmarked, but it can only be for someone cycling on Mosspark Boulevard wanting to leave the carriageway to use the toucan cross ... [more]

A diagonal road filter retro-fitted with full cycle access.

A diagonal road filter, with full access for cycling. But no dropped kerbs for pedestrians to cross by.

Fire Path in Balgonie Road, with no provision for through cycling. The sign has an unusual partial yellow background. Normally yellow backgrounds are used with a full border, to make the sign more conspicuous. No need for this nonsense! ... [more]

Fire Path in Balgonie Road, with no provision for through cycling.

Entrance to Balgonie Road on Arisaig Drive.

Car parking at the north end of Grantchester Meadows, proposed for closure - since the introduction of parking restrictions in Newnham Croft, and the growth in van-living, the numbers of vehicles here have gone up. There's a clear need for ... [more]

Car parking at the north end of Grantchester Meadows, proposed for closure - it used to be that the road surface was terrible here, and that vehicles tended to only park at the far end - but since the introduction of parking restrictions in ... [more]

Notice of the county council's plans to close the car parking at the north end of Grantchester Meadows, and a petition against it.

Imaginative redecoration of a bollard in Sedgwick Street, Cambridge.

Sensor above the lights might be for the right turn phase? There isn't an equivalent facing the other way for the Cherry Hinton Road -> Queen Edith's Way turn. Difficult to know why it's so high - unless instead it's actually looking ... [more]

Good to see that in the carriageway utility covers that have been dangerously (and noisily) uneven for years are now level - but here that wasn't possible. Instead, sloping the kerbs to meet the cover has created an inpromptu 'dropped kerb ... [more]

Redmac for the short cycle lane now finished

Bike sensor (I think) above the lights

Another case where it's too easy to be confused by the wrong lights when making the second-stage crossing

I haven't noticed elsewhere this bollard treatment for cycle lane behind bus stop

Redmac for the cycle lane past the bus stop is now finished

I think that's a sensor for the advance bike green at the top of the lights. Seems to give about 7 seconds head start before the vehicle green, but only when a bike is sensed.

The sign back at #170595 should have warned that this left turn is directly onto the M8 motorway.

No right turns from Broomloan Road onto Paisley Road West, principally to keep the car traffic moving faster.

The sign should really mention that motorway regulations begin immediately on the road with the motorway numbers all in brackets. This is a sliproad directly onto the eastbound M8 motorway, see #170597.

Edmiston Drive (which becomes Shieldhall Road beyond the next junction) is a horrible busy dual carriageway, with a mixture of roundabouts and crossroads along its length. So it was not surprising to see a mix of road and pavement cycling g ... [more]

Helen Street is not a cycle-friendly road by any means, but its junction with Edmiston Drive is particularly bad. This guy was cycling on the carriageway further back, but switched to the footway on the approach to the roundabout.

Is this still the most appropriate layout for this junction, given the change of priorities and connectivity at the other nearby junctions in recent years?

The area around Crossloan Terrace and Harmony Square is permeable for pedestrians, but things could be made easier for cycling by installing a few dropped kerbs and connecting paths.

Roadworks closing the shared footway alongside Bunhouse Road. Pedestrians are diverted through the car park, no mention of cycling. I went onto the road, but this is not possible in the opposite direction since it is one-way.

A four-arm sign at a six-arm junction. Plenty of room for confusion, but most of the destinations on this side, where there is a choice of three routes, are already within sight. The Kelvin Hall has also been written as one word.

Lanes for walking and cycling have been painted in various places in Kelvingrove Park, but are having little impact on where people actually walk or cycle. Not that the lack of compliance seems to cause any problems.

[Image taken 4.5.21] Tanner Row, York junction with Rougier Street. So. Much. Clutter. And five cycle parking spaces remain blocked by the temporary signage - see #170372 and links. The colourful tubs are part of the Buzz About York project ... [more]
