Bollards in the path on the approach to the connection to Courthill.

The path to Stockiemuir Road, and across to the Baljaffray estate, could easily be upgraded for cycling, along with the rest of the route from the Allander Centre.

A severe barrier on the path between Duncryne Place, Bishopbriggs and Ashgill Road, Glasgow.

Randomly placed bollards leading up to the main event.

Largely pointless gate and step-through bypass.

A gate across the lane leading to the narrow Thomas Muir Trail path. Passing this is easier than negotiating the path ahead.

The same cycle route seen in #88255, with this interesting feature across the road.

It would be useful to have a dropped kerb on the opposite side of the divider, or better still a proper signalised crossing, to allow easier access between this side road of Kirkintilloch Road and Meadowburn. (The ASDA superstore is off to ... [more]

It's almost as if they don't want people cycling to the main north-south path through the housing development (see for contrast #88251).

This box surely didn't need to be placed right in the way of the path, creating a blind corner?

Previously locked central gate removed, removing need for cyclists to open sprung side gate. Planter boxes obstruct central gate enough to prevent motor vehicle access, but not enough to stop footway parking alongside. See also #85471.

Ramped steps up from bridge seen in #70911. The path behind the camera is level and it looks like this could have been built as a ramp with a lesser gradient. If the lampposts were moved back into the planted area at least bikes could be ... [more]

Road closure in Keystone Avenue, 'No Motor Vehicles' sign and route sign including cycling information, but no dropped kerb for cycling. As if the turn off of the A81 Glasgow Road wasn't awkward enough!

Clearly there used to be a kissing gate here, where the Allander Way meets Glasgow Road. (Sign close-up at #70761.)

Gate, barrier and a big puddle where people have gone around the end of the wall, on the Strathkelvin Railway Path. Also, the sign (seen in #68168 closeup) still shows old route of path, now built over by the Kirkintilloch Initiative Road.

A path to Calfmuir Road, with stile, that is rough and no use for cycling. Better stick to the Strathkelvin Railway Path.

Not only is the southern section of the Strathkelvin Railway Path diverted (due to the Kirkintilloch Initiative Road) and unsurfaced, but users have to go around a crash barrier to get to it!

Fence blocking end of path at Allander Road, forcing cyclists to squeeze through narrow gap to get to dropped kerb and onto road.

Former alignment of path now blocked by new housing development, forcing cyclists and pedestrians heading for Allander Road and Colquhoun Park to detour around it.

Stepped ramp on footbridge over Forth & Clyde Canal at Westerton

Closed bridge over River Kelvin on path from Balmore to Cadder. A replacement bridge is to be built by East Dunbartonshire Council some time in the 2012/13 financial year. UPDATE: The replacement bridge has now opened! (March 2013) Se ... [more]

Brand new road with no dropped kerbs at path crossing. Well done Kirkintilloch Initiative!
