The Drumchapel Way continues down some very shallow steps to a bridge across the Garscadden Burn.

There is an unmarked speed hump either side of the Cleveden Road bridge on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, which are quite hard to spot if you don't know they are there.

@TrothBen @CycleInfraDay @Fenmonkey @bencooper Here is my trike on the bridge. Not much room for anyone coming the other way. https://t.co/19Afh1W4Gc

According to Network Rail, the railway bridge on Muirhead Road has been "rebuilt stronger and wider to enable two-way traffic, cycle route and pedestrian footpath". I don't see a cycle route. https://www.networkrailmediacentre.co.uk/news ... [more]

Pigeon mess problem at the Cowal Road bridge.

Bridge maintenance work on the Snow Bridge. See also #100430.

Bridge maintenance work at the Snow Bridge. See also #100431.

Is Bowling over the bridge? No.

Directions for anyone getting over the locked gate in #99820, but why no directions for the route to the left, which leads to Baillieston and Glasgow?

Broken glass on the cyclepath under the Bredisholm Road bridge, next to the new M8 motorway.

The motorway surface would never have been left like this, so why the core path and cycling route?

Fences ✅ Crash barriers ✅ Surface ❌ Unless you like cycling on the A89 dual carriageway, this is one of the few options for getting around Baillieston Interchange and on to Bargeddie.

The path looking southwards from the A8(M) motorway bridge.

The path beneath the A8(M) motorway bridge.

The path beneath the A8(M), Scotland's shortest motorway, has now been completed. I can't help but think they could have been more generous on the width. Not that lots of people will use it, but passing a couple of people walking a dog will ... [more]

The unmade path from Cardowan meets the made paths around Cardowan Moss.

Richmond Park closed, why not visit Glasgow Green? Well, the Polmadie Bridge is down for starters.

Polmadie Bridge being rebuilt.

Work of some sort happening on the piers of the former Polmadie Bridge, with the Clyde Walkway remaining open.

Security advice on the new cycle stands at the bridge to the Murano Street student halls complex.

New cycle stands at the bridge to the Murano Street student halls complex, with CCTV coverage, and a forgiving kerb!

Contractors still using the cycle lane for their temporary signs.

There appears to be some demand for a ramp to bypass the steps up to Dalmarnock Road.

A diversion sign for NCN756 at the Smartbridge since its route through Richmond Park is currently blocked.

Having been prevented from going into Richmond Park by the housing construction, path users now have no option but to use the steps up to Shawfield Drive.

Two sets of route signs giving directions over the dismantled Polmadie Bridge.

The Sighthill diversion route is obstructed by an undropped kerb.

Diversion sign for Sighthill path closure.

Settlement at the south end of the flagship active travel bridge across the Clydeside Expressway at the Glasgow Harbour development.

This puddle gets splashed off the side of the bridge and onto unsuspecting underpass users by passing vehicles.

The gates have been locked shut across the Kelvin Cycleway/NCN756 for the duration of a dinosaurs event in Botanic Gardens.

The as yet unopened cycleway beneath the Bredisholm Road bridge, next to the M8 motorway. The path appears to be routed around a SUDS pond, after which it rejoins a position adjacent to the motorway. Not sure a road would be designed like t ... [more]

The as yet unopened cycleway beneath the Bredisholm Road bridge, next to the M8 motorway. Note that the signs at the junction with Brediholm Road are for destinations requiring a sharp turn and no destination is given for straight ahead.

An extremely narrow section of path along the canal below the Ruchill St bridge. Shameful that something so bad could have been built in modern times!

The canal path goes under a modern road bridge on a very narrow section of path (see #92011), but it is possible to bypass it by going up the ramp to Ruchill St and crossing to rejoin the canal path beyond the bridge.

Like #91605, a diversion sign that says "see map" without saying where the map is. And it's at a flight of steps (the turning for the ramp is behind the camera).

Just some of the broken glass that plagues this section of cycle path.

The Brock Burn path meets the cycle route through Silverburn.

There appears to be a gap in the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route at this bus stop in Barrhead Road.

Upgraded bridge across the Auldhouse Burn.

The new bridge over the railway line at Bredisholm Road is not finished.

A replacement bridge for Bredisholm Road over the widened M73 motorway.

NCN7 ahead and possibly NCN75 across Bells Bridge shut for a running event. The sign refers to a diversion but it is not clear where the diversion signs are. See also #90343.

Since my last visit here (see #88189) a route confirmation sign for NCN75 has appeared, but no directional signage.

A bus stop bypass being formed on Pollokshaws Road, to be part of the South City Way.

Clyde Walkway Location: Glasgow Central, Glasgow (Scotland, United Kingdom)

Toucan crossings to access the Paisley Road cycle track.

The replacement path under the new A8(M) bridge does not look like being a priority for Transport Scotland. The only path under Scotland's shortest motorway!

The path beneath the road bridges at Baillieston could do with a litter-pick along its whole length.

I've noticed from my travels that a road in England would probably have a shared-use footway through here, but this is not the case in Scotland. The A89 expects cyclists to be on the carriageway, or go via Uddingston on the Sustrans route.

An old canal bridge on Castle Street, but there are steps on the other side so not useful for cycling.

This has apparently been left like this for several weeks! No warning signs for anyone approaching from the riverside.

The route sign directs cyclists to the flight of steps under the bridge, when they need to use the ramp up to street level. However, the ramp to street level has been partially dismantled, and has been left like this for a few weeks (see al ... [more]

The unsurfaced canal path from Bishopbriggs finally arrives at Lambhill Bridge. Much quicker (and cleaner) to use NCN754 across the other side of the canal, but what if you live in the area around Aultbea Street?

Another scheme where the designer has failed to take account of how vehicles will be parked, given that there is unlikely to ever be any parking enforcement around here. Putting in wide footways with big stone kerbs is a waste of money in t ... [more]

The Smart Bridge connects NCN75 with NCN756 on the opposite bank of the River Clyde. But the only signage is by means of Sustrans stickers.

The South Bank cycle route and the dismantled Polmadie Bridge, with diversion signs.

A dropped kerb to access the St Andrew's Suspension Bridge from McNeil Street has now been installed.

The path network in the former athletes' village includes a few unusual features such as this bridge across the water feature, and this plaque explaining a bit about the village.

New bridge connecting the Cuningar Loop park to the former athletes' village, but no connection to the Clyde Walkway.

"No Entry except buses and taxis" at the former Water Bus terminal, now part of NCN75.

Demand exists for a contraflow cycle lane over the Cathedral St bridge (see middle distance).

Midland St now has a contraflow bus lane from Jamaica St, before becoming two-way by the mid-point.

Some new surfacing on the canal path at Baird's Brae, partly replacing cobbles

The path between Vaila St and Langa St, with a low railway bridge.

Fortified bridge across the railway line beyond the end of Lochburn Road.

The sign gives directions for left and right, but some people may actually want to go straight on, but the way is blocked by a planted area and the Fastlink busway. Behind the planted area is a 3-stage toucan crossing across Broomielaw (see ... [more]

A sign at the end of the suspension bridge.

Clydeside Path

The end of the George V Bridge contraflow cycle track. The options here are turning left or right onto the Clyde Place cycleway, or left onto the Clyde Place carriageway, or perhaps U-turning.

The Clyde Street cycleway approaching the George V Bridge crossing.

The end of the new protected cycle lane across Glasgow Bridge. Only a poor quality painted cycle lane continues along Bridge Street, and apparently no provision for left or right turns onto the East-West NCN756 which crosses the road at the ... [more]

The start of the new protected cycle lane on Glasgow Bridge

The start of the new protected cycle lane on Glasgow Bridge.

The stepped cycle lane on George V Bridge is somewhat difficult to get onto from Commerce Street due to all the clutter on the footway, and potentially people waiting at the crossing. But as we can see from #82971, it is only useful for ... [more]

Bridge joints in the new stepped cycle lane on George V Bridge have still to be finished.

If you are going straight on from George V Bridge, the new stepped cycle lane is no use (see #82971), so must continue to use the carriageway, in lane 3. But there's a 20mph sign, so that makes it all right!

A person on a bike who has missed the NCN75 ramp (to his immediate left) and is heading towards a flight of steps under the bridge.

The stepped cycle lane on George V Bridge is for left turns only. Anyone going straight on should remain on the carriageway, in lane 3 or 4 (see #82973). Plenty of footway clutter to deal with on the corner.

New infra heading southbound on the A77 - ends at a toucan. Better with at least! @S4CGlasgow @carsickglasgow https://t.co/jVJaP0NsfE

Officially approved advertising?

More miles for #TeamGlasgow. That painted lane looks so safe (NOT). @GlasgowCC is #lettingtheteamdown https://t.co/YfcNzTVwRc

A 'Cyclists Dismount and use footway' sign at rail bridge roadworks, where the footway is now shared use. Scaffolding was partly blocking the footway, making it single file but no real need to dismount. No real need for that shared use s ... [more]

This narrow corner is going to be rebuilt as part of Glasgow City Council's cycle route along the south bank of the River Clyde. Update at #83027.

NCN756 has now been signed via the south bank of the River Clyde, but the cycle route along this bank hasn't been built yet, and there are still some flights of steps such as at #71267! The narrow riverside footway to Springfield Quay is ... [more]

Lighting repairs beneath the M74 motorway bridge.

Kilbirnie Street approaching the Eglinton Street junction.

No physical impediment to cycling through the road closure over the bridge between Chestnut Street and Kippen Street, but the 'No Through Road' signs as in #71226 imply it isn't legal to do so.

Although there are 'No Through Road' signs without any exemption for cycles, there is no physical impediment to cycling over the railway bridge between Kippen Street and Chestnut Street.

A road narrowing at an old railway bridge in Ashfield Street, where a barrier has been erected to stop vehicles being driven through the parapet on one side.

A brand new bridge on Cathcart Road, over the brand new M74 motorway, and what have they done for cyclists?

A bit of a gap between the long-term temporary bridge barriers and the resumption of the cycle track segregation, due to the gateway. Perhaps the temporary barrier could be lengthened a bit.

The problem of the bridge over the railway still awaits a proper solution.

The Allander Way has an underpass beneath the A879 Balmore Road (although not Boclair Road), but the path does not connect up with it, and if you want to join Balmore Road, access is by climbing over the crash barrier!
