    Like the idea. I would put it to Glasgow council that on each island they need one extra bollard...

    That is the best one I have ever seen I think. Agree one more bollard per is needed though.

    The important things are the start and end. How does it look there?

    If it leads to another crappy cycle lane full with debris and parked cars, then it ruins the image that was just painted.

    Is that two way?

    If it is, I wouldn't go near it. Sorry but it looks way too narrow.

    Quite right. Get rid of the cars in one direction :thumbsup:.

    From the parking in that picture (sorry, I didn't read the blog in full) it looks like it's a one way street for motorised traffic anyway.

    Yes, there's a sign that says it is one-way (it's probably why it was done at all). It depends what bit you're talking about. I was also looking at the next road along that appears to be two-way (might not be) and has the path restart on the other side of the road :wacko:. Still two lanes for a one way street is overly generous, they have space to nick a bit more.

    we have one here that runs parallel to the A55 ( dual carriageway) and I am very pleased that it does. It makes me feel a lot safer when I hear the cars going past at 70 + mph!
    I dont always use the ones in town though, I use my own jugdment for that.

    That's a 2 way cycle lane & I wouldn't go near that thing! way to narrow if I meet a cyclist going in the opposite direction.

    Looks like yet another comedy cycling facility to me - unnecessary and marginalises cyclists from the road.

    I don't even know why the councils in this country bother with cycle lanes. The money would be better spent educating idiots on the road on how terrifying them driving 6 inches from us at 50mph is.

    If that's a one-way road, why can't they just have a wide contraflow cycle lane, and let bikes going the other way ride with the traffic?

    Hadn't noticed it was two way. It's less good now.
