Glasgow Cycle Path: Not sure what this is for. It sticks out into the motor vehicle road. It's the only such projection.
Glasgow Cycle Path: Another view of the projection on London Rd
Glasgow Cycle Path: James Morrison St, looking at London Rd
Glasgow Cycle Path: Looking toward St Andrew's in the Square
Glasgow Cycle Path: The beginning of the path in St Andrew's St, at the junction with Saltmarket. Note that there is a raised kerb, and no easy way to cycle on to the cycle lane, except from the footpath.
Glasgow Cycle Path: Another view of the start of the new cycle path on St Andrews St. Again, note the raised kerb. There is no indication that the footpath is shared-use, and legal for cyclists to use - though the crossing around the corner seems to be some kind of toucan crossing (i.e. with a cyclist icon).
Dutch cycle path: Segregated cycle lane, beside a 50km/h road. Note that the speed limit changes to 30km/h where the cycle path ends and turns into a cycle lane (because of the narrow bridge).
Dutch cycle path: segregated cycling, with a clearly distinct footpath. This is quite an old design of path, I think. Newer builds use tarmac for the cycle path, usually coloured orange.
Dutch Cycling: The cycle lane meets a side-road here. Note how the road is engineered to slow down cars before they cross the cycle lane, and so reduce conflicts. The cycle lane is raised up slightly with a smooth gradient, while the roads have a steeper kerb to negotiate.
Dutch cycle lane: Residential street, but subject to through-going traffic. The street has just been redeveloped.
Dutch cycle lanes: with a cyclist walking 1 dog, while carrying another in a basket on the back. Just earlier to this I saw a man cycling along, carrying a large sheet of plasterboard on one shoulder, but didn't get a photo.
Dutch style traffic calming on a residential street: Pinch point introduced for cars, with a side diversion for cyclists, to avoid placing them in extra conflict with cars.
Entrance to the little-used Clydeport car park on the Broomielaw. The path is supposed to be a National Cycle Route cycle-path. However, here cyclists have a broken road surface and dropped kerbs to negotiate.
Cyclists view approaching the entrance to the motor-vehicle-free side street off the A814/Broomielaw. It's a pretty tight angle between the bollard with the metal sticking out and the traffic light pole.
Glasgow City Council's cycling officer has inspected this and found that it does not pose any undue danger.
Another view of this rusty, jagged metal clasp-on-pole, that doesn't pose any danger to manoeuvring cyclists.
A part of the new segregated cycle-path at the Glasgow Cross end of London Road has been re-surfaced - it was awful before.
However, inexplicably, the contractor did this half-arsed job on it. This brand-new cycle-path still looks an old & broken road (for that's what it is), and still is annoying to cycle on at more than walking speed with anything other than a full-sus MTB.
Brand "new" segregated cycle-path on London Road, near Glasgow Cross.
Sunken drain and uneven surface on segregated cycle-path, London Road.
Same cycle-path, London Rd, near Glasgow Cross.
White man van approves of new parking lane.
Completely broken up road surface on Turnbull St, just before junction with Greendyke St.
These gates to the NCN75 are always locked. Cyclists have to negotiate a narrower entrance with a bollard, to the right, and cycle over cobbles (more urban mountain-biking :( )
The NCN75 Clyde-side foot & cycle-path, where it goes under the Clyde foot-bridge. It's pretty glass-free, the council seems to have increased the cleaning of it - yay!
Broken up, uneven road surface and man-hole covers on the A814 / Broomielaw, outside the Gala Casino.
The new London Road segregated cycle path, in December, about 2 days after any heavy rain. Significant drainage problem.
