Photo listing (problem)

This listing only shows photos within Renfrewshire.

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

Worn out cycle markings on path in Barshaw Park

Worn out cycle markings on path in Barshaw Park

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.

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.

Current end of Paisley to Barrhead cycle path. Handy for the bus stop. Roughly midway between Paisley and Barrhead. UPDATE June 2014: The path to Barrhead has now opened. http://www.eastrenfrewshire.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=5142 htt ... [more]
