Cycle Facilities on Google's Street View

Website by Andy Preece

This page could get silly. Now Glasgow is in Google's Street View system, we can show off all the cycle facilities without having to go and take a camera! So here goes.

Glasgow's shortest cycle lane, Hawthorn Street.

Car parking in cycle lanes, Corkerhill Road.

This cycle lane you have to cross hatching to enter..., ...avoiding the parked cars..., ...and the pedestrian crossing..., ...and more parked cars..., ...then it just disappears..., ...starts again..., ...tells you to cycle on the pavement..., ...cross the Toucan Crossing and jump into the Advance Stop Line box, Westerhouse Road.

Glasgow's most desolate cycle route, Lillyburn Place.

Spot the shared pedestrian/cycle use sign, Cowcaddens Road.

Road closure with gap for cycles, Kingsborough Gardens.

Another road closure with gap for cycles, Eriska Avenue.

Is there any reason cycles shouldn't be allow through here? David Street.

Tropical cycle facilities, West Street.

Cobbled cycle lane, Hope Street.

Speed cushions positioned where they will encourage motorists to drive in the cycle lanes, Garrioch Road.

The cycle lane for middle-of-the-road cyclists, Cambridge Street.

Overranking taxis queuing across a pedestrian crossing, Gordon Street.

Looks like Google didn't notice the No Motor Vehicles signs, Gordon Street.

Or these Buses Only signs, Cathedral Street.

Or here, Hotspur Street.

It isn't just Google that's being naughty, a lorry is caught going through a fire path at Regent Moray Street.

However, Google didn't violate these No Vehicles, Skateboarding or Rollerskating signs, Royal Exchange Square.

A close shave with a low bridge, Lochburn Road.

This van wasn't so lucky, Drummore Road.

Returning to cycle facilities, East Kilbride isn't much better. This cycle path has no dropped kerb at its entrance, East Kilbride Road.

Look at the pot holes on this cycle route, minor road between Cambuslang and Blantyre.

If you have a cycle route that needs looked at then tell me all about it!
