Despite there being parking spaces on the opposite side of the road, this driver has decided to block the footway at the bus stop by parking at the most inconvenient place possible.

167662Photo #167662NCN7 meets Dock Street on the edge of Clydebank. This will become a busy crossing when the new bridge to Renfrew is built. There is scope to put the cycle path on a bridge to cross the road, reusing the abutment of the old railway bridge, but I don't think anything more than a toucan crossing is planned.

The space to each side of the barrier is less than desirable, but I guess the barrier will be going when the new road is built.

The road has numerous speed humps, but unless there is some form of traffic filtering, has potential to become a rat run. No cycle facilities were noted.
