The end of the protected cycle track over the Erskine Bridge. The choice is going down the ramp to the main road below, or continuing through the former toll plaza to get to the same place via the slip-road and roundabout. But no dropped ke ... [more]

I'd conclude that Shilton Lane's status as a 'No Through Road' is the correct one.

The end of the overgrown section of Shilton Lane. The northern section is the access to various properties.

The southern section of Shilton Lane is a track leading to various properties and a farm.

Is it really so bad to cycle on the footway of Old Greenock Road between Bishopton and Erskine? This couple appeared out of Shilton Lane just as I approached, giving me hope that it could be used as a through route.

The start of the cycle facilities at the Barrangary Roundabout on the A8 near Bishopton.

The end of the cycle facilities at the Barrangary Roundabout, and the merge back onto the A8 carriageway, heading towards Bishopton.

The shared-use footway from Dargavel approaching the Barrangary Roundabout. The A8 currently doesn't have any cycle infrastructure on it in either direction from here. Although the sign says 'road on right closed', the road to the left w ... [more]

A shared-use footway along one side of Barrangary Road, connecting Dargavel to the A8.

A shared-use footway along one side of Barrangary Road. Strictly speaking, there shouldn't be 30mph signs here since the road has street lighting.

Forge Crescent meets Barrangary Road. You just have to know that the cycling provision is on the footway to the left and right, and to get onto it at the toucan crossing just beyond the Advance Stop Line.

A short path off from the main path to a cannon. This area used to be home to the Bishopton Royal Ordnance Factory.

Clear access to the path to the southern part of Dargavel, but why does the asphalt not continue?

Ramp down to cycle path at Paisley Canal station, but no dropped kerb on Causeyside Street.

A segregated cycle lane at Saucel Street that doesn't connect up with the main road (behind camera).

A piece of cycle lane that has survived.

Signed cycle route to Renfrewshire House, but it doesn't take the most direct route (see #79948).

Signed cycle route between Renfrewshire House and NCN7, crossing Causeyside Street.

Signed cycle route between Renfrewshire House and NCN7, via a cobbled back street.

Route sign for cycling, at a mandatory right turn. The light on the mandatory turn sign isn't facing the right way, while above the light there appears to be some other equipment taped on. Across the road, a van is parked on the footway.

A 'Watch Your Speed' sign in a pedestrian precinct, where there are already speed humps!

Route sign in Gilmour Street. Just need to get around the railings on the footway.

Bike lockers at Glasgow Intl Airport. Secure with own lock

Riverfront walkway in Erskine, looking towards Clydebank.

Some random cycle parking in Erskine.

No horse riding!

The path alongside the roadway continues through to Irvine Drive.

Cycle parking at the On-X leisure centre in Linwood. Only a single scooter present today. Access at this end appears to be across the grass. Only the other end has asphalt.

A ramp and steps up to the Greenock Road toucan crossing.

Ramp up to toucan crossing across Greenock Road. This appeared to be the last route sign before reaching the edge of Linwood.

More of the high quality infrastructure linking the Inchinnan Business Park and Glasgow Airport.

This appears to be part of the route from the Inchinnan Swing Bridge to Porterfield Road. There are a few different paths, none of which is properly signed, none of which is of any quality.

A shared-use footway in Paisley, complete with sign posts

The cycleway alongside Ben Nevis Road, and the gate into the park beyond, on NCN7 and NCN75

This is a new road (2013) leading to the entrance of the new Dargavel housing estate. Unfortunately, only a shared use pavement has been provided.

This is a new (built around 2013) roundabout. There's some completely useless cycling infra around it. Here, the cycle path ends and people cycling must merge back onto the main road (40mph limit).

This is a new (built around 2013) roundabout. There's some completely useless cycling infra around it. Here, the cycle path turns into shared use.

This is a new (built around 2013) roundabout. There's some completely useless cycling infra around it. Here, cyclists are taken off the road to avoid the roundabout.

I was about to categorise this as 'good practice' but then noticed the sign appears to show that the 'Airport Cycle Route' goes straight on while NCR (National Cash Register?), Town Centre and Railway Station are to the left.

Large signs, but most of the Glasgow Airport cycle route is just along the main road

Route sign with small print explaining how to traverse the "cycle route" since it isn't obvious, due to poor design

A shared-use footway alongside new road serving Dargavel housing development near Bishopton

To the left, 30 secs away is Paisley Canal station. Steep hill down so need to brake.

A737 queued back May 2013

Cycle parking next to vandalised street furniture

Cycle parking outside supermarket and shopping centre.

Wheeling ramp on motorway footbridge steps. UPDATE June 2014: This footbridge is going to be replaced by an accessible ramped footbridge built adjacent to the existing structure.

Footbridge across M8 motorway, linking Hillington and Renfrew, is stepped, but has wheeling ramps. UPDATE June 2014: This footbridge is going to be replaced by an accessible ramped footbridge built adjacent to the existing structure.

Junction sign at Hillington Park. There is no indication as to whether the route to Penilee is on the footway (like the route in the opposite direction) or not. There are no 'shared use' signs anywhere further along the road.

Shared use footway route crossing car-park entrance, with none of the signage or 'give way' markings or found at other crossings

Shared-use footway in Hillington Park

Shared-use footway switches sides, close to roundabout

"Change is moving up a gear - Watch out for the exciting changes at Hillington Park!" - promotional sign next to a shared-use footway.

Shared-use footway switches sides, close to roundabout, but why not cross at the raised junction traffic calming (see #47474) a short distance along the road, where cars are slowing down?

Line-segregated shared-use footway in Hillington Park. The route switches sides ahead (see #47473) but this raised junction traffic calming would make a better location to cross, since motor traffic slows down here.

Line-segregated shared-use footway in Hillington Park, with Give Way markings at unused road-mouth

New anti-climb fencing being installed on Erskine Bridge. Cycle track on opposite side has become two-way temporarily while work is being undertaken.

Footway cycle route and toucan crossing on King's Inch Drive, near IKEA store

Close-up of unusual cycle parking at Braehead Shopping Centre (see #30582)

Slippery surface sign at former railway bridge entering Bridge of Weir

"Lorries prohibited from this road". The bollards help enforce this!

Paisley to Barrhead cycle path, leaving Paisley. Not sure what the Give Way is about.
