Pavement is extended several feet out into carriageway just past bus stop. I have seen vehicles collide with this as it is completely unexpected, and unnecessary. Each time I cycle past this location I am still shocked at how easily misse ... [more]

Pavement required down to the end of the houses where the Kilbarchan sign is

Parking restrictions required at corner & crossing for pedestrians improved.

Pavement too narrow

More people walking to/from village into/out of Forehouse Road, only path on one side, traffic comes speeding from Bridge of Weir over a hill, very bad junction for drivers trying to turn right into the village and in general for cyclist/pe ... [more]

Cars park on a wide section of pavement, if they don’t traffic flow is difficult especially for buses. Needs a solution......

Pavement too narrow, walking into road to pass also people parking either side of the road means you don’t have a clear view.

Speeding traffic makes it too dangerous to cycle on. Reduce speed to 20mph maximum as road is too narrow

Speeding traffic makes it too dangerous to cycle on. Reduce speed to 20mph maximum as road is too narrow

The pavement here is less than 3 feet wide! Which would be fine if it were a quiet village, but it seems to be a favourite for motorists avoiding speed cameras!

The village seems to be a favourite for people trying to avoid the motorway. As a result, this tiny street has a car or even truck going by every 20seconds. Doesn’t feel like the countryside.

Pavement is too narrow. There can be cars parked partly on the pavement. There are cyclists on the pavement because there are always cars in the cycle lane.

Lots of cyclists use Glasgow Road here - there is plenty of room for cycle ways

What is going on here? There is a shared use sign but not clear if that refers to the pavement leading towards Hairst St or what

Junction improvement, parked vehicles & road layout encourage drivers to overtake cyclists turning right onto road that leads to cycle path

Cycleways required the whole way along Paisley road in Renfrew and Renfrew road in Paisley in both directions to allow commuting to and from Braehead, Renfrew ferry links, Paisley town centre and train travel links

The main road through the village could be partially cordoned off to allow safe cycling, particularly between the cycle path and the village park.

There is no safe way to cycle from Renfrew to Paisley

The path running parallel to the A8 needs swept to restore the full width. There’s also an access with kerbs which need to be removed / levelled.

Cyclepath required to encourage cyclists who are heading for quieter roads having come across the bridge

The A726 dual carriageway between Dykebar and the Hurlet.

The A726 dual carriageway has a continuous footway from the edge of Paisley to the Hurlet and beyond, which could be upgraded to shared-use standard for those that need to use it.

The lack of cycle facilities on the A726 could be addressed by a modest upgrade of the existing footway to shared-use standards. Note that the dropped kerb crossing on the far side of the roundabout has been completed blocked for pedestr ... [more]

The dropped-kerb pedestrian crossing across Hurlet Road, near the roundabout for Grahamston Road.

No cycle facilities on the busy Grahamston Road, outside Dykebar Hospital.

A very poor surface on the path from Strathcarron Drive to Dykebar Hospital.

A very poor surface on the path from Dykebar Hospital to Strathcarron Drive, with raised edges creating a trip hazard and hazard for bike tyres.

Chicane barrier on path from Strathcarron Drive to Hurlet Road, even though there is pedestrian guard railing across the end preventing access to the road.

Damage to pedestrian guard railing on Hurlet Road.

No easy way across Hurlet Road from Ben Nevis Road to the path to Strathcarron Drive.

Tree root damage on the path alongside Ben Nevis Road.

Tree root damage on the path alongside Ben Nevis Road.

An awkward piece of path at the entrance to the park at the end of Ben Nevis Road. The combination of vertical and horizontal alignment, and the normally closed gate, make this tricky to cycle. It also doesn't seem to be easy for van driver ... [more]

It's hard to believe that this is right alongside the M898 motorway. The most intense vegetation is just ahead, and includes nettles.

The middle section of Shilton Lane is somewhat overgrown. This could be replaced by a path.

The soggy path meets the road network but there is a concrete edging strip sticking up. Uncomfortable to cycle over, and a tripping hazard for walkers.

The path has no connection to Barrangary Road, but instead curves around and the first connection with the road network is at Forge Crescent.

After a brief piece of asphalt at the railway access point, the path reverts to a soggy soft surface for the unexpectedly steep climb.

A newly built soggy wet path alongside the railway in the southern part of Dargavel.

A soggy wet path to Bishopton station from the new housing development. All of the roads have asphalt or paved surfaces, so why this for the main path?

A soggy wet path from Bishopton station to southern Dargavel.

One of the traffic signals has been demolished so now people have to cross the busy A760 unaided.

These barriers on the NCN7/75 look brand new and contravene @sustrans guidance on access controls: https://t.co/fR4xOMAmRt https://t.co/fNQV15dMJi

Slalom at each end of ramps to new Hillington footbridge.

Think I interrupted a dance off between these bollards... https://t.co/mZ9zk2HLwA Similar in Cambridge see: #9156

An anti-cycling barrier in alleyway from Saucel Crescent, despite the continuous railing across the entrance on the road outside.

Painted cycle lane that fades out, and is invaded by motorists.

I'm not sure this should be like this!

Faded footway cycle route (which only goes around the corner and into the supermarket) starts without a dropped kerb, and faded on-road cycle lane.

Narrow lanes on Lonend and a sign with the destination of "National Cycle Route (7, 75)"

Signs for cycle lanes on Bridge Street that were removed some time ago.

Rather than continue the short distance to connect up with the cycle path from Lochwinnoch station to the village, the roundabout-avoiding cycle path just gives up with a dropped kerb and a lit 'End of Route' sign. The footway gets so narro ... [more]

Poor quality roundabout-avoiding facility on the A737 at Roadhead Roundabout.

This gate fully blocks the carriageway and no by-pass has been created to allow cycles into the grounds of the leisure centre, expecting all vehicular visitors to use the other gate further down the road.

Faded painted cycle lanes on Ferguslie Park Avenue. There's parked cars in them further around.

Ridiculously small route sign hidden behind planters at entrance to playing fields.

The only sign that indicates that the cycle route is on the footway, and these two didn't realise that the route went straight on here rather than following the road around the bend.

This shared-use footway is far too narrow, but space on road wasted with hatching! No dropped kerb for crossing side street either.

This appears to be the point where cyclists should join the footway, but there are cars obstructing it, as well as the painted cycle lanes.

The kerbside painted cycle lanes on Russell Street are totally obstructed by parked cars.

Faded painted cycle lane on residential street, with an even more faded Disabled parking bay in the middle.

Route sign for Glasgow Airport facing the wrong way.

Beautiful example of filtered permeability in Erskine. Road connects river path to local supermarket. http://t.co/KEiQTygoyG

Lifting bikes over a locked gate on Core Path LIN/9. The gap at the side was only wide enough for slim pedestrians.

Sign facing the wrong direction (the 'cycle facility at the roundabout is itself inadequate). Part of the so-called Airport Cycle Route at Glasgow Airport.

There presumably should be a route sign on this post for the Glasgow Airport to Inchinnan Business Park route.

Poor to start with, absolutely awful with no maintenance. This is on the marked cycle/pedestrian route from the Inchinnan Swing Bridge to Porterfield Road (Renfrew)

Poor sightlines, narrow and twisted route around traffic signal pole, and being told to dismount. Cheap and nasty cycle route in Paisley.

Inadequate cycle parking at country park visitors centre cafe.

This used to be a straight across toucan crossing. Now it's an obstacle course over a split toucan at the side of the supermarket road junction.

One of Renfrewshire's beautiful cycle paths. Designed to be used to cross the road and onto the shared use path which begins on the other side. Awful surface and full of litter.

Cyclists are directed off the carriageway onto a shared-use segregated footway to go around the roundabout

No need to 'Beware of cycles' on the left arm of the roundabout, which cyclists are directed to cross at #52889

Pinchpoint on Glasgow Airport cycle route

'Traffic calmed area' - Really? In what way? This must be a very important sign, since it has been provided with a light!

Are cyclists meant to cycle through the hatching?

Poor cycle route design at bus stop

Signing #fail with cycle route signed through road where vehicles are prohibited except for access to properties on that road. The new path goes as far as the equestrian centre.

'No Vehicles Except for Access' sign prohibiting through use of this section of Old Greenock Road by cyclists. Must go via A8 instead.

'No Vehicles Except for Access' prohibiting through use of this section of Old Greenock Road by cyclists.

Wheel-twister cycle parking stands at miniature railway in Barshaw Park

Worn out cycle markings and poor drainage on path in Barshaw Park, at level crossing with miniature railway

Route sign for Glasgow Airport cycle route hidden in amongst bus layby street furniture.

Cyclists have not been considered in the revised road layout. These traffic signals have been installed without any provision being made for the cycle route, possibly because there wasn't any special provision before the junction was signal ... [more]

The two-way cycle track used to be protected by bollards, but they've been removed, leaving cyclists cycling into on-coming traffic with no separation. The road markings are badly worn, so there is little to tell motorists to stay off this ... [more]

The two-way cycle track is not linked into the junction, it just ends and cyclists have to find their own way across. None of the crossings are toucan crossings and the road is one-way.

Dropped kerb needed to allow cyclists through between Merlin Way parking area and Netherhill Road

Dropped kerb needed at entrance to Cockleshill Park

Temporary repair to motorway footbridge that was hit by an overheight vehicle! UPDATE June 2014: This footbridge is going to be replaced by an accessible ramped footbridge built adjacent to the existing structure.

Random start to pavement cycle track along Mossland Drive, with no dropped kerb at start. The adjoining Hillington Road is a far busier road and has no cycle facilities, not even at the motorway junction.

Narrow path linking to riverside promenade near Braehead Shopping Centre - quite a contrast from #30585

Former Erskine Bridge access path blocked by fence at new garden centre. All access is now from the bus layby on the main road where there isn't even a dropped kerb.

Give Way to a fence! It would be more appropriate to put the Give Way in at the road crossing, which is closer to a blind corner off to the left.

Not the end of the route. The route continues on the other side of the road.
