Confusing signage for the COP26 diversion that has now ended.

The temporary segregation at the south end of Kelvin Way has temporarily been removed for COP26, and although the fences have now been removed from around the Kelvingrove Art Gallery, the segregation has not yet been replaced. The 'Road Clo ... [more]

COP26 diversion signs on Old Dumbarton Road. The one on the tree is indicating separate diversion routes for walking and cycling, due to the direct route along Argyle Street being quite a busy main road.

The COP26 fence completely obstructs the riverside path that forms part of the Kelvin Walkway, and although there is a gate and it is open, it opens onto the remaining width of the path blocking it.

A fence has been built all around the Kelvingrove Art Gallery for the COP26 event. It blocks the footway (the one that might be shared-use due to the one-way carriageway) and the gate only opens across the carriageway,

A sign advising of the diversions for NCN routes 7, 75 and 756, facing people heading away from the diversions.

So is the diversion for NCN7 straight ahead, or left?

Fallen signs on the path, and temporary signs that aren't too helpful (see #175562).

Temporary signage to "No Entry"!

This footway is significantly busier than when the area to the left was a scrapyard and not student accommodation. But the COP26 diversion route has been signed over this regardless.

A busy footway that cyclists have been directed to use as part of the COP26 diversion route.

Not much evidence of there being a COP26 diversion route around this corner.

"Diversion cyclists dismount" on Waterloo Street. No explanation as to where the diversion leads (other than an NCN7 emblem), or any obvious reason why cyclists might need to dismount. There were no further signs to be seen further along th ... [more]

The cycle route diversion sign on the left-hand side of the road is not particularly noticable from the West City Way cycleway.

I was surprised at how flimsy this barrier was, compared to all the others. Maybe there's a wall of steel barrier further on.

Rejoin traffic from the end of the cycleway at the corner of Old Dumbarton Road and Yorkhill Street.

Slow for the incorrect tactile paving and portaloo.

Back to business as usual with the traffic racing round the Benalder Street/Old Dumbarton Road junction.

A COP26 security gate has been installed beneath the railway bridge at Ferry Road. A similar installation has also been provided at the bottom of Kelvinhaugh Street. I met an annoyed pedestrian who had been turned back to find another route ... [more]

A diversion sign halfway along Kelvinhaugh Street.

No improvement at Argyle Street. However, the plastic barrier which had been pushed beyond the asphalt ramp has been restored to its intended position.

The end of Minerva Street has been closed off, and covered with a security barrier. The cycle route has been diverted via West Greenhill Place (see #175377).

The flow of the one-way system on West Greenhill Place has been reversed, with a contraflow cycle lane added. The No Entry signs have been painted over, but the paint appears to be washing off! A diversion sign for the cycle route has been ... [more]

Narrow redesignated footway on expressway sliproad, with added fencing. When the fencing was installed, it blocked a dropped kerb at the toucan crossing ahead, but this had been resolved by the time I was there.

Temporary one-way system on Elliot Street, and a cycle route diversion sign.

Anybody spot the issue here? 👀 The diversion for cycling during #COP26 is a mess. It’s inaccessible. It’s not signed correctly. It’s not a route that people want that makes them feel safe. https://t.co/6bNuDzihB0

The Clyde Arc has been divided in two for COP26.

The pop-up cycle lane at Lancefield Quay is now being used for signage. The signs include "CYCLISTS" is very small print.

The COP26 diversion route goes from Castlebank Street to Beith Street along the narrow remote footway, which has been signed as shared use.

The soft segregation for the COP26 diversion route does not extend as far as the Castlebank Street junction, even though Beith Street is a very wide road for a one lane each way road. Cyclists are diverted back onto the narrow footway to ge ... [more]

The ramps at the soft segregation provided for the COP26 diversion are tiny, and completely unusable should anyone turn up on anything other than a standard solo bicycle.

The soft segregation for the COP26 diversion on Beith Street does not even extend to the Benalder Street junction. It, like the similar work on Argyle Street, is done to a poor standard and provides a narrow space for cycling alongside the ... [more]

A diversion sign for the NCN7 COP26 diversion route obscured by a parked van. Not the van driver's fault, of course, since it should have been placed somewhere where it could be better seen.

The SEC covered walkway itself appeared to be open for business, although whether it was possible to get out the other end I don't know, having diverted around the gyratory system due to the sight at #175151.

The route to the SEC covered walkway appeared to be blocked.

The end of the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway in Ferry Road is now usable.

With NCN7 due to shut on Saturday, the cycle route on the diversion route on Old Dumbarton Road is still under construction at its eastern end. There does not appear to be any attempt to tie in the cycleway to the road network at this busy ... [more]

Unusably bad soft segregation has been put in on Argyle Street for the COP26 diversion route, and is dangerous for various reasons, including lorry parking right up to the pedestrian crossing point blocking sight lines. See also #175137.

Very poor soft segregation on Argyle Street for the COP26 diversion route.

Soft segregation has been put in on Argyle Street for the COP26 diversion route, but is of such poor quality that it is worse than useless. See also #175139.

The protracted roadworks to rebuild and extend the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway continue. The https://www.roadworksscotland.org/ website said the road closure to create the raised junction would have started by 7 October and Get Ready Glasgo ... [more]

I find it strange that, of all the bus stops around the city of Glasgow, the two sites chosen for the green-roof bus shelters are both at locations that are no longer served by bus services due to the adjacent Fastlink busway. See also #174 ... [more]

"Cyclists Please Dismount" on NCN7 at Scottish Events Campus. Also "Pedestrians this way" without indicating a way. The footway is shared use. Update: The "No Cycling/Cyclists Please Dismount" sign in the photo above has since been remov ... [more]

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]

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]
