Confusing signage for the COP26 diversion that has now ended.

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.

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).

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

"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.

A COP26 diversion sign on Old Dumbarton Road.

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

A diversion sign halfway along Kelvinhaugh Street.

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]

The flow of the one-way system on West Greenhill Place has been reversed, with a contraflow cycle lane added, but the signage has not been done correctly or completely. The diversion sign for the cycle route is barely noticable. The Get Rea ... [more]

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 Old Dumbarton Road cycleway is not finished, but it is open, and the COP26 diversion is now active.

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.

Is this sign meant to be in use?

A triangle of new paving has been placed to the side of the large barrier at Buchanan Wharf, because people were walking across the flower bed to get past the barrier. This is also the cycle diversion for NCN756 until the cycle track at #16 ... [more]

The path into the park is closed for works, but the diversion appears to be signed into the worksite! I used another route instead.

Access between Drumchapel and Bearsden has been maintained during the long-term water works. The surface of the temporary path is stones and not good for cycling on. However, the path south (to the right) has been closed since it goes throu ... [more]

Roadworks closing the shared footway alongside Bunhouse Road. Pedestrians are diverted through the car park, no mention of cycling. I went onto the road, but this is not possible in the opposite direction since it is one-way.

A short diversion around some ongoing work, but the uneven surface and narrow width make it rather awkward to negotiate.

A short but awkward diversion around some ongoing work, see #170152.

If you haven't found the diversion by now, you won't see this sign.

A small route sign almost unreadable due to stickers (and appears not to mention the one route where there is a cycle facility), and a fallen diversion sign blocking the gutter. Providing a path in the park to connect to the segregated c ... [more]

The signs for the Forth & Clyde Canal diversion (see #155655) are no longer pointing the correct ways.

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

Ambiguous diversion sign for pedestrians and cyclists (the closed "footway" is the path from Craighall Road to Pinkston Road, alongside the motorway), and fancy electronic sign for motorists.

No change to the diversion signs in #95364 and #95363.

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

Pedestrians and cyclists diverted into the presently dead-end Pinkston Road, but motorists are not.

A sign for the diversion due to the closure of the path between Pinkston Road and Craighall Road. There are no longer signs displayed for the diversion between Pinkston Road and Charles Street.

The path between Pinkston Road and Craighall Road has been closed, and the footbridge across the motorway to North Wallace Street has been removed. Diversion signs are in place along Baird Street and Dobbie's Loan. However, the diversion ... [more]

Signage relating to the Stockingfield Junction canal towpath closure for construction of a new bridge.

The Forth & Clyde Canal towpath is now shut at Stockingfield Junction for construction of a new bridge. Signed diversions have been put in place. In the opposite direction, the closure is at Ruchill Street. On the opposite bank, the path ... [more]

A map showing the full diversion route for the Stockingfield canal towpath closure. Similar signs are located at the Kelvin Aqueduct and at Stockingfield Junction itself, possibly elsewhere too. The canal towpath is open up to Stockingfi ... [more]

Permanent route signs and temporary diversion signs relating to the Stockingfield canal path closure, but who would know? The temporary diversion signs should be yellow. The canal towpath is open up to Stockingfield Junction, but only to ... [more]

Diversion signage for the Stockingfield canal path closure. The sign should be yellow. The diversion for city centre is rather lengthy from this direction, and those with local knowledge may be better going via Glenfinnan Road instead. The ... [more]

I was surprised to see this Scottish Canals branded route sign after the turn for Shakespeare Street, but it turns out it is part of a signed diversion due to the Stockingfield canal path closure, so it should be yellow. The diversion appro ... [more]

Claypits Nature Reserve bridge under construction over the Forth & Clyde Canal. There is a rough path to get around the side of the worksite.

A rather inconspicuous diversion sign for the SECC covered walkway closure, facing the wrong way.

The Clyde Place cycleway has been shut for building works, but a diversion has been established via the riverside walkway.

Still no dropped kerb at Pinkston Road to join the path between the M8 motorway and the former Sighthill Park. The new location for the Sighthill standing stones can be seen to the right.

The Kelvin Walkway diversion via Contin Place. Still no dropped kerb at the start of the path to Wyndford Drive.

Diversion signed with blue (permanent) rather than yellow NCN stickers. And still no dropped kerb at the start of the path to Contin Place.

Excellent signage at the Scottish Water work on the Kelvin Walkway Garriochmill Road access, where a short path has been laid to divert around the worksite.

Excellent signage at the Scottish Water work on the Garriochmill Road access to the Kelvin Walkway. A short path has been laid around the back of the work compound to maintain pedestrian and cycle access.

The path linking the South Bank path and Oatlands is presently shut while work is underway on rebuilding the Polmadie Bridge.

Now that the riverside path has reopened, I notice a sign for NCN75 pointing up the old diversion around the former Polmadie Bridge, and now that path has shut for work on the old bridge piers.

I don't know which closure this sign relates to. The next closure in this direction appears to be at Richmond Park.

The path to Ballater Street closed due to the damage seen in #95387.

The end of the diversion due to the collapse of the South Bank cycle path, and reversion to the path.

Due to the cycle path collapse at Adelphi Street, the cycle route is diverted through the car park.

Advance warning of the closure of NCN756 ahead.

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

The Sighthill diversion is via a flight of steps!

I'm not sure the risk assessment for the Sighthill diversion route has been completed correctly.

The Sighthill diversion route is obstructed by an undropped kerb.

Diversion sign for Sighthill path closure.

Building works at Partick Bus Station have meant that the point where cyclists join Merkland St carriageway has now been closed, and cyclists are forced to share a narrow footway already obstructed by (unrelated) scaffolding. However, t ... [more]

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).

@sturmeyarcher3 @GoBikeGlasgow Apparently there is a diversion on a map... somewhere... https://t.co/XxexndT9Zu

Still a kerb to bump for anyone trying to get onto the carriageway next to Bells Bridge, in this case due to the closure of the cycleway by a running event. One chap decided to go over the double kerb nearer the bridge ramp! See also #90342 ... [more]

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.

The River Clyde South Bank Commuter Route has its own sign.

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

Routes through what was Sighthill Park closed due to redevelopment, and the bridge over the motorway is getting replaced at some point too. More information at www.glasgow.gov.uk/sighthill

Since the cycle route is closed for the next 3 years while Sighthill is redeveloped, it might be an idea to take down or cover up this sign. The park is no more, so take those signs away at the same time.

Some Sighthill diversion signs that are still in place, and some illegal parking outside the Police Station.

A diversion sign for pedestrians and cyclists (like #87688) lying on the ground, and a motoring diversion sign fixed securely to a pole.

Diversion sign for pedestrians and cyclists while Sighthill is being rebuilt. This sign is meant to last for 3 years, but it's only been a few months so far!

Diversion signs for drivers, one of which is fixed to a permanent pole.

New toucan crossing, not presently on any permanent cycle route, just a long term diversion. Plus some sandbags that once held a diversion signs in place, both in the foreground and in the background across the crossing.

A bogus sign for NCN75 (the connection on the right at the toucan crossing is a flight of steps, see #60171, the ramp is to the left), and a sign for the Polmadie Bridge diversion. I don't suppose they've considered cycling in this diversio ... [more]

A sign attempts to divert pedestrians and cyclists onto the path nearest the riverside, even though the two paths join up a short distance further on. A 'Diversion Ends' sign would be more appropriate here.

Apparently Polmadie Bridge was found to be in such a perilous state that it had to be shut immediately, including closing the paths and river beneath it! Demolition is due to start on 12 October 2015. No replacement bridge has been proposed ... [more]

Do I need to get authorisation to cycle past here, or do I have it already?

Diversion routes diverge: on the right is the diversion for NCN75 and NCN756 returning to the Clyde Walkway, while behind that is the route of the 'Footbridge Diversion' for anyone wanting to cross the now closed Polmadie Footbridge. The on ... [more]

Temporary diversion on NCN75 and NCN756 for Polmadie Bridge closure, including the path under the bridge.

Leftover sign from Commonwealth Games. The cycle route was open. And where is Sunlight Way?

I've found the Glasgow 2014 diversion signs! Do I win a prize?

A diversion sign for NCN75 directing cyclists the wrong way along a one-way street.

A diversion sign for NCN75

Gate blocking most of the width of the access ramp to the Clyde Walkway/NCN75 at Dalmarnock Bridge. There's still no dropped kerb, despite repeated requests to Glasgow City Council, for cyclists coming from the road. However, a sign has bee ... [more]

The Commonwealth Games fence narrowing the Cairncraig Street path. Cyclists trying to follow NCN75 will be diverted up here come the 'lock down' period covering the event.

Temporary NCN75 diversion around the section of Anderston Quay wall that collapsed, somewhat narrow and cobbled at this end (see also #47843 and #47844) UPDATE: A thin strip of tarmac has now been laid alongside the cobbles and the fence ... [more]

Diverted NCN75 around Anderston Quay wall collapse (see #47843 and #48484)
