A number of streets in Dumbarton have been given a paint job in a bid to encourage more cycling and walking.

Bright colours were splashed across pedestrian crossings, bike lanes and outside schools.

West Dunbartonshire Council hopes the installations at Dumbarton Central Station, Dumbarton Academy and Dalreoch Primary School will help keep people safe.

Here’s a look at some of the eye-catching work.
