Bears Way / Milngavie Road signage

1)Burnbrae RBT - Main St
I'm not sure if pavement cycling is OK here

August 2015 - does TSRGD 956 refer to the side road or main road ?

By Oct 2015 the round sign on the lamp-post was turned round to face those entering Bears Way

Many bike+ped-safety signs (TSRGD 562, orange ground) have been turned round on Bears Way itself - see 3), 4), 5) below

2)Kelvin Timber
Bollard with no reflective sign ?

3)Reid Ave
2x Ped signs hidden to traffic!

4) Junction Kilmardinny Ave
1x Ped sign TSRGD 562 missing - an empty post !

1x other turned edge-to-cars

5) Mosshead Rd
1x Ped sign TSRGD 562 green with moss - not sure about the 'shared path' sign - it's new - side-road pavement? StreetView history implies they took out the red-brick shared use side-road crossing, but put in the shared-use sign !

1x other turned edge-to-cars

I'm not local so can only go by Google StreetView snapshots - things may have changed since !
Worth doing a thorough survey, comparing it to the definitive design ?
I believe I reported most of these via EDC website a year ago.
Is it possible bus/van drivers are worried about hitting the signs ?
Maybe drivers are offended - "Of course we're careful of pedestrians!"
Is it just malicious - involve 'beat bobby' ?
