The towpath of the Forth & Clyde Canal at Stockingfield Junction has reopened, with just the bridge remaining closed.

The towpath of the Forth & Clyde Canal at Stockingfield Junction has reopened, with just the bridge remaining closed.

The cobbles under the Ruchill Street bridge have been replaced by asphalt, removing one hazard at this very narrow section of path built in modern times. See #92011 for previous surface.

I don't think the replacement Sighthill Bridge will be opening in "the early months of 2022". https://www.glasgow.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=27331

Placemaking (I think) at Ferry Road. Benches have been installed next to the bin, but still no restoration of direction signage (such as in #37216) for the cycle routes.

Construction work continues at Stockingfield Junction.

A new path to Southdeen Avenue, but the connection to Glenkirk Drive behind the camera is via a flight of steps. The Drumchapel Way crosses from right to left.

The new bridge at Stockingfield Junction is taking shape.

Dalsholm Bridge has had its deck surface replaced by slippery, lumpy cobble stones, and if you fall off spiky railings have been fitted to the bridge's parapets.

Work in progress on the Stockingfield Bridge.

Having started with a clean slate, it is disappointing to see such a misalignment at the end of the West Street cycleway. The badly placed lamppost forces users to choose between going one side or the other, one of which means that they wil ... [more]

Works have started at the Snow Bridge.

Slippery cobbles being installed on Dalsholm Bridge.

No clearance of any of the muck covering up part of the NCN7 path next to the Clydeside Expressway.

The Glasgow Harbour "land bridge" (as it was described when it was first proposed) has subsidence issues.

The Clyde Arc has been divided in two for COP26.

Preparing to shut the Stobcross Bridge for COP26.

Painted bollards at Anderston Cross.

The paintwork at Anderston Cross, before it was hidden by lots of barricades.

The path over the River Kelvin bridge is very narrow, so having this fence block sightlines onto it until the last moment before knowing whether the way is clear or not is rather unhelpful. #102680 illustrates the width. With the gate left ... [more]

"Doom awaits" - a fence blocking sightlines onto the narrow path across the River Kelvin expressway bridge. No such problems for drivers on the adjacent road. See also #175173.

The Ferry Road dropped kerb (see #175002) did not stay clear for long. Again, materials dumped partly obstructing users of this dropped kerb.

The former NCN7 route at Pointhouse Road and the footbridge with steps over the Clydeside Expressway still form useful parts of the cycle network to differing degrees.

The slab paving work at Ferry Road is now complete but the asphalt footway remains to be finished. Some graffiti has been painted over, but new graffiti has appeared. The obstruction seen in #173875 has been removed. The former cycle dir ... [more]

The dropped kerb at the end of Ferry Road is now clear from obstructions (see #173875), but the footway surface is still incomplete.

The Stobcross Bridge is to be shut during the COP26 conference for some sort of security reason.

Progress on the bridge under construction at Stockingfield Junction, looking through the worksite gate.

The odd narrow footway arrangement under the Castlebank Street railway bridge approaching NCN7. There is a dropped kerb to join the path immediately after the bridge (see #173856), while the rest of the road is just a dead-end alongside NCN ... [more]

a cyclist leant their bike here. Only explanation https://t.co/vmLh9GKEKP

Roadworks continue on Ferry Road. The surface on the footway is still incomplete. Updated at #175001 and #175002.

The junction where it is proposed to close NCN7 during the COP26 conference and divert users around the streets of Yorkhill, Finnieston and Anderston. The carriageway of the road is accessed via the dropped kerb before the bridge, and the f ... [more]

I don't know what the purpose of that bar attached to the underside of the bridge is, but there's a bit missing now. I'm sure the edge of the NCN7 cycle path next to the Clydeside Expressway was straight when it was installed, but is now ... [more]

The council has fenced off the former cycle off-slip from the Clyde Arc bridge at the NCN75 toucan crossing. This helped those making right turns by allowing cyclists to leave the carriageway and make the turn with the assistance of the cro ... [more]

Broken glass and a parked van blocking the contraflow cycle lane in Cleland Street. The lane and path to the left over to Gorbals Street was also blocked by parked motor vehicles.

A view of the fly parking at Charing Cross, seen from the footbridge.

Still plenty to do to connect up the replacement bridge across the M8 motorway between Townhead and Sighthill.

The replacement Sighthill footbridge is now in place across the M8 motorway. See also #172744.

Bridge over the White Cart at Pollok House.

The line narrowing the shared footway over the motorway bridge, and a scooter user approaching.

The shared footway over the motorway bridge has a solid line marking near the railing. Is this because the railing is too low for a shared use footway/cycleway to be there?

No dropped kerb for access to the bridge across the railway and M80 motorway, connecting Robroyston Road to Winifred Street and the other half of Robroyston Road.

A wide bridge across the M80 motorway and railway for walking and, presumably, cycling.

No dropped kerb at western access to motorway bridge in Winifred Street.

A former railway bridge in Carmichael Street that Highways England has proposed for filling in. This one is probably no loss since the area either side has been developed and the railway cutting filled in.

Some sort of pipe dangling from the road bridge over the River Kelvin and NCN7.

Greenbank Park, approaching the bridge over the Auldhouse Burn.

The bridge appears to be in the process of being rebuilt. UPDATE Oct 2021: A new bridge is now in place.

A pop-up painted cycle lane has appeared on George V Bridge, wider than the narrow stepped lane to its left, but still inside of a left turn motor vehicle lane, so probably best to continue moving out if not turning left.

The Tradeston Bridge is presently shut for work to be done.

Building work continues at Clyde Place. The cycle track approaching the Tradeston Bridge has been rebuilt. However, the position of the temporary railing directed me onto the new kerb which I wasn't expecting.

The signs at the foot of the footbridge connecting the two parts of Beech Avenue across the M8 motorway. The direction sign is obscured by tree braches, and not visible if following the original Paisley to Glasgow cycle route (an important ... [more]

The footbridge connecting the two parts of Beech Avenue across the M8 motorway, and part of the original Glasgow to Paisley cycle route. The footbridge ramps have a single step at each side of the bridge.

A bridge over the railway line next to Cartcraigs Road. Network Rail has applied to demolish this bridge without replacement as part of the project to upgrade and electrify the railway through here. See https://publicaccess.glasgow.gov.u ... [more]

The western footway of Dumbreck Road over the railway and motorway bridges here is now shared-use. Although the footway is only slightly wider, various permanent clutter has been removed such as a cabinet and sign poles.

After the bridge, the footway reverts to the east side of the gated section of Bogside Road.

The footway on the gated road changes sides at the bridge, and the remains of Bogside Road disappear into the housing development in the distance.

A gate has been provided across the full width of the road beyond the station. Partly due to its colour, I didn't realise it covered the full width of the road until I'd passed the last opportunity to leave the carriageway and join the (per ... [more]

The alignment of Abbotsford Place is continued in the form of a path, but is blocked by the parked car transporter on Cumberland Street. There is no formal crossing or even dropped kerbs.

Path under the M8 motorway.

Temporary signs placed in cycle track, blocking the entire width, again.

Work progressing on the new bridge across the Forth & Clyde Canal at Stockingfield Junction.

The traffic signals at Lochburn Road are now operational, and the low-level cycle signals give a head-start of a few seconds before the main signals change.

The signed diversion route is shut! Still no dropped kerb.

The bridge between North Wallace Street and Sighthill is being replaced, and diversions have been signed to Craighall Road and Pinkston Road.

Poor lumpy asphalt surface on bridge over Forth & Clyde Canal.

Traffic signals being installed on Lochburn Road at the canal bridge. Low-level cycle signals have been included for cyclists going along Lochburn Road. [Now they are operational, the low-level signals give cyclists a head-start of a few se ... [more]

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign on the path alongside the Springburn Expressway, at a point where all approaches have steps, except for the route to Carleston Street over the bridge.

Pop-up cycle lane on Hawthorn Street. This bus stop appears to have been forgotten for the bus boarder treatment. Hatching has been removed from the centre of the road to make room for the cycle lanes, which much improve safety for as lo ... [more]

Light segregation installed on the Colleges Route cycle lanes in Clarence Drive. A big improvement on #112288. Ahead are two parking bays, the first is located outside of the cycle lane, the second is kerbside and the cycle lane goes around ... [more]

The protected cycle lane on Victoria Bridge and the narrow painted lane it replaced.

Armadillos protecting a wide cycle lane on Victoria Bridge.

The tops have been sliced off some of the armadillos on Victoria Bridge.

The new bridge across the canal at the Claypits Local Nature Reserve is now open.

Refurbished bridge, seen previously in #87513. The area has been tidied up, although graffiti has returned. Unmade paths lead through the woods to Cadder.

It's clear here what the transport priorities are when there are steps at one side of this footbridge.

The new bridge to the Claypits nature reserve nearing completion.

Someone using Lochburn Road to gain access to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath towards Bishopbriggs and Kirkintilloch. The car driver made a sharp stop. Construction work has now started on a new bridge across the canal at Stockingfield Junc ... [more]

The popup cycle lane continues onto Broomielaw, passing under the Central Station bridge.

The footway and cycleway remain open during Network Rail bridge works above Clyde Place.

The footbridge at the end of Dolphin Road has fairly steep ramps, but also has quite a bit of upstand on the kerbs on each side.

Most of the gullies on this section of road appeared to be blocked, but this one was also dislodged from its mounting.

A new bridge taking shape in the Claypits nature reserve.

A new bridge being constructed across the Forth & Clyde Canal at Firhill.

A footbridge across the M8 motorway, connecting Queenslie Industrial Estate and Garthamlock.
