First sight eastbound of what's around the corner

Good progress on backfill and reinstatement above south end of underpass

'Making it up as they go along'? Looks as if they may have decided against adding a second cattlegrid

Tarmac looks almost finished, broken swing gate has been replaced, other swing gate has been hooked open again.

Still some work to do between resurfaced path and existing cattlegrids. Not very walk- or cyle-friendly at the moment, and not obvious how they can finish without fencing off the route via the grids.

Improved path for Chisholm Trail making progress, but still plenty of 'making good' to do.

Some sort of pipe dangling from the road bridge over the River Kelvin and NCN7.

The sign permitting cycling in the Fastlink busway has gone, and there is a sign directing cyclists to the shared path along the riverside. However, the crudely altered "Bus and cycle only" road markings remain.

Cycling in the cycle lane on Gorbals Street. The taxi driver driving behind the bus then barged through this group of four cyclists to park in the layby. The permanent cycle provision for this road can't come soon enough!

The contraflow cycle lane in Howard Street is blocked by roadworks, and this sign is at the end cyclists won't be approaching from while using it. See also #170198.

Roadworks closing the contraflow cycle lane in Howard Street. See also #170198.

"Cycle Lane Suspended" - no further details. Roadworks are taking place in the contraflow cycle lane in Howard Street ahead. A diversion could have been set up via Dixon Street and Fox Street. See also #170199.

There is are no segregated cycle lanes on Schützenweg. At the railway crossing, there are no proper sidewalk either. Right north of the railway line, a major cycle route is also crossing Schützenweg. This area is growing rapidly with addi ... [more]

The start of the Garscube Road cycleway, seen coming from the Queens Cross direction. Next time I'll try going between the first and second bollards rather than the second and third which was quite tight.

The end of the Garscube Road cycleway, but there is a short length of cycleway to the left in Hinshaw Street. Construction is underway to the right, of a new ramp for access to the Forth & Clyde Canal.

The Garscube Road cycle track at the entrance to the Oakbank Trading Estate. There is a flashing LED cycle sign, but this one didn't light up, unlike one further south.

One day I'll come along here and it will be open. There's a continuous cycle track around the corner into Possil Road which continues as far as Baird's Brae. A short connection has been built in St George's Road, which will later be extende ... [more]

The Garscube Road cycleway still unopened at Possil Road.

Still surfacing work outstanding at the south end of the Garscube Road cycle track.

A Nextbike docking station at Keppochhill Road, with the St Rollox Drive cycle track in the background.

The speed cushions in the middle of Bateman St have been replaced by partial-width cushions, much easier for both cars and bikes. The three to the east are full-width.

The three speed cushions at the east end of Bateman St have been replaced by gentler full-width cushions.

The three speed cushions at the east end of Bateman St have been replaced by gentler full-width cushions. Did they also repair the potholes caused by drivers braking for the previous cushions? No, of course not.

[Image taken 14.6.21] Near Grimston House, Vanbrugh Way, University of York, York. Good practice: using green tarmac to link sections of a through campus cycle route over a road. I think this would be very helpful at Bootham Terrace/Longfie ... [more]

[Image taken 14.6.21] Spring Lane Building, University of York, York. Two examples of best practice - though, as with all the examples on the campus, you have to know they exist and where to find them. A designated disabled space (see: #170 ... [more]

  • Icon 170179 Location: Tollgate Road from Colney Heath to the war memorial/gates to North Mymms. issue: road is dangerous for cycling and is a missing link between the St Albans-Hatfield cycling route and the safe and enjoyable cycling routes in and around North and South Mymms and National Cycle Network route 12 to Chipping Barnet and London. There are footpaths that cover this link but they are not accessible to cyclists. please can this be changed (and signposted)... fixing this half mile or so segment of route would be a great aid to safety and to promoting cycling in the county. Thank you!
  • Icon 170146 There is a well used "natural path" across the grass from St Luke's Church towards the bus stop. Can this be made into a well defined metalled path and the grass replanted beside the path? It needs to be side enough for tweo or even three people as the route is very popular.
  • Icon 170145 The pavement is too narrow here outside the pub on the corner at the bottom of Islingword Street even when the pub benches are not being used. Add a build-out on Islingword Street round this corner to allow passers-by to pass by without stepping into the road.
  • Icon 170144 Add a build-out outside this cafe (La Famille) on Islingword Road to allow people to sit outside and socialise safely while letting passers-by pass by without stepping into the road.
  • Icon 170143 Widen the pavement by adding a build out that goes from the Pharmacy to the corner on Queen's Park Road, to allow room for the the queue to the pharmacy and the post office and for people to congregate and socialise safely while letting passers by pass by without stepping out into the road. The road is wide enough and the pavement certainly isn't.
  • Icon 170142 Add a build-out outside the Constant Service pub on the corner of Islingword Road and Southampton Street to allow people to congregate and socialise safely while letting drivers see better at the corner and let passers-by pass by without stepping into the road.
  • Icon 170141 Add a build-out to widen the pavement on Southover Street outside this Takeaway (China Star) and the Convenience Store next door, so there is room for people to queue outside, to wait outside while their takeaway order is being prepared, and to come out without bumping into people and for passers-by to pass by without stepping into the road.
  • Icon 170140 Add a build-out outside the Haus on the Hill on Toronto Terrace and on Southover Street to allow people to congregate and socialise safely while letting passers-by pass by without stepping into the road.
  • Icon 170139 Add a build-out to widen the pavement on Southover Street outside this Fish and Chip shop (Sea Breeze) on Islingword Road so there is room for people to queue or wait outside while their order is being prepared, and for passers-by to pass by without stepping into the road
  • Icon 170138 Add a build-out outside the Dover Castle on Islingword Street and on Southover to allow people to congregate and socialise safely while letting passers-by pass by without stepping into the road.
