Glasgow City Council is planning some work to fix this retaining wall on the Kelvin Walkway.

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.

Obstructive pavement parking on the shared-use footway on Dalsholm Road between the Garscube Estate path and the Kelvin Walkway, forcing riders onto the crumbling carriageway. There is a free car park at the top of the hill in the backgroun ... [more]

The nettles are starting to take over the path again.

Another professional dog walker using the shared-use footway for van parking.

Pigeon mess problem at the Cowal Road bridge.

Poor forward visibility on the bit of the Kelvin Walkway that dips down next to the river then climbs back up quite steeply (out of sight around the bend).

The cycle parking at the Kelvin Hall (see #95296) has been removed without replacement, meaning bikes are getting locked to railings here and around the corner.

The utilities work on Old Dumbarton Road fail to take any account of the cycle route which crosses from one footway to the other at this point.

Utilities work on the shared-use footway on Old Dumbarton Road (lasting several weeks) and no account taking of cycling.

The cycle parking stands outside the Kelvin Hall are hopeless and need replaced. Bolting stands onto block paving is not sufficiently secure in a street environment. See also #95251.

Just a small sign away from the main line of sight to warn of the cycle track crossing the access road to the Bunhouse Car Park, and no indication of priority.

Still no sign as to whether this widened footway is shared use or not, now that the one-way carriageway is unusable for cycling in the other direction. However, there is this parking sign where no parking is allowed.

Broken asphalt on the route the Kelvingrove Art Gallery boss preferred cyclists to take rather than the more obvious route through the car park.

It turns out bolting cycle parking stands to block paving isn't very secure. Who knew? See also #95296.

Literally nowhere else to park! (*not)

An ambiguous sign at Partick Bridge. Is the cycle route to the City Centre along Argyle Street or around the Kelvingrove Art Gallery car park? And whereabouts does it join NCN7?

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

Footway car parking outside new student accommodation, including reversing across the shared-use footway/cycleway. There is plenty available on-road car parking, and a cheap all-day car park next door (behind the trees).

The crossing of Bunhouse Road is a mess, and is currently partially blocked by hoarding. In the background a van driver has blocked the cycleway with his van, right next to some car parking spaces on the road, and near a large car park j ... [more]

The start of the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway in Ferry Road is completely anonymous.

Old Dumbarton Road with the cycleway on the far side, passing an old gate.

The point on Old Dumbarton Road where the cycleway crosses to the opposite footway.

The Bunhouse Road cycle track partially blocked due to it being used as a dumping ground for materials during roadworks on Argyle St/Dumbarton Road. The van parked on the footway beyond the cordoned off area was blocking the dropped kerb fo ... [more]

A sign for the West City Way at Kelvingrove Art Galleries, with no further explanation. In the background, someone unlocking a hire bike.

As welcome as the rebuilt paths connecting to the Kelvin Walkway are, some have brought thier own problems, including here mud washing down onto the main path. There were problems here before, but now worse than ever! The sign covered in ... [more]

The Kelvin Walkway at the Kelvin Aqueduct. A pity about the kink in the path still being present. Awkward and annoying when you're just picking up speed from the preceding narrow climb and blind corner.

It's hard to believe that this path is only a few weeks old. Unlike the other rebuilt paths linking to and from the Kelvin Walkway, this riverside path was not asphalted, but instead has been given a loose surface. Unsurprisingly, it is ... [more]

Unlike the other rebuilt paths linking to and from the Kelvin Walkway, this riverside path was not asphalted, but instead has been given a loose surface. Unsurprisingly, it is already wrecked after the first heavy rain since it was built. W ... [more]

Welcome as these improved paths are, they've caused problems on the main Kelvin Walkway, including mud washing down the hill.

An unnecessarily sharp turn at the junction of the Kelvin Walkway and the path to Southmuir Place. This could potentially be a main route into North Kelvinside and the West End from the Kelvin Walkway. No addition to the signpost to refl ... [more]

A welcome new path connecting the Kelvin Walkway to Southmuir Place, but it appears to have been built without any regrading of the gradients, so has a sudden steep climb.

A welcome new path to Southmuir Place, but needs protected from use by drivers.

A welcome new path from Southmuir Place towards the Kelvin Walkway, but why the adverse camber, and couldn't more of an effort be made to tidy up the start? With no bollards to protect the path, there are also motor vehicle tyre tracks.

Cars being parked on the Kelvin Walkway and West City Way, because someone has removed some of the bollards that mark the limit of the car park.

Cycle parking at the Kelvin Hall, replacing #31550 where a new extension has been built. But the stands are bolted onto block paving and have since shown the shortcomings of that method of fixing (see #95251 and #95296).

Path in Wyndford being widened, rerouted and resurfaced, providing more direct route between Kelvin Walkway and Southmuir Place.

New cycle parking stands at shops in Maryhill Road, but new direction sign attempting to direct cyclists down a flight of steps!

A new set of signs has appeared, with tiny writing that cannot be read approaching the signs.

Route sign hidden by tree branches until the last moment, on narrow shared-use footway.

Useless barriers blocking path, but motor vehicles driven across grass, turning it into mud, plus uncollected rubbish next to bin, and path still covered in autumn's unswept leaf fall, causing clothing to get covered in muck for anyone cycl ... [more]

An attempt has been made to beautify the entrance to the Kelvin Walkway at Kelvindale Road, but this has been spoilt not just by the barriers, but by signs pointing to "National Cycle Network Route 7". It is NCN756 as can be see on the stic ... [more]

While the barriers have replaced worse barriers, the problem of the unnecessarily steep ramp remains, and the people I saw before and after taking this photo both dismounted rather than attempt to ride up this ramp. Also the bollard sugg ... [more]

Old barriers at Kelvindale Road crossing on Kelvin Walkway replaced by new barriers, slightly further apart. The old barriers are shown at: #45335.

Lots of ice on the Kelvin Walkway, next to the canal aqueduct, at a point where there is water running down slope onto path.

Compacted snow turned to ice on Kelvin Walkway, and with no gritting, staying frozen in shadow of railway viaduct.

No gritting of active travel routes in Glasgow. This is Dalsholm Bridge over the River Kelvin after much of the ice elsewhere had melted in the sun.

A very poor section of track linking the closed section of Bantaskin Street with the Kelvin Walkway. The sign says "Kelvin Walkway - Authorised Vehicles Only - 4 m.p.h."

Triple barrier on path connecting closed section of Bantaskin Street at the Skaethorn Bridge to Kelvin Walkway. Why?

Fly-tipping on closed section of Bantaskin Street, which forms access to Kelvin Walkway.

On the left, offside access to the Forth & Clyde Canal at Kelvin Dock. (Access to the towpath can only be gained from here by crossing over one of the lock gates.) On the right, access to the Kelvin Walkway. Poor surface all round.

A car parked on shared-use footway, blocking access to cycle path. There's a free car park about 30 seconds' drive away to the right.

No dropped kerb at end of path, and this path is useful as a diversion while the Kelvin Walkway is shut. UPDATE: A dropped kerb has subsequently been installed.

Mucky surface on Kelvin Walkway, with still lots of unswept leaves in March! This muck gets on your trousers when cycling in the wet.

Car parking at point where shared-use footway cycleway crosses over Old Dumbarton Road. Google Streetview shows Double Yellow Lines on the roadway here before resurfacing.

Cycle lane painted on footway, with Give Way parkings at entrance gateway

Cycle lane painted onto footway on Old Dumbarton Road

Good directions along the canal, but the sign for the Kelvin Walkway is non-reflective and doesn't mention the NCN route number 756.

Temporary closure of the Kelvin Walkway due to cracking appearing in path high above river bank.

Diversion route while Kelvin Walkway shut at Maryhill

Route sign with small writing, and not reflective. Since this route is not lit, reflective signs would help guide users, and they did until they were taken down to be replaced with these signs.

Temporary closure of Kelvin Walkway due to cracking appearing on section of path high above the riverbank. The diversion is via Garrioch Road.

Sign directing cyclists to the National Cycle Route and Milngavie

Large-slotted gully 2/3 across width of widened cycle path at bottom of slope. This could easily catch the wheel of a cyclist not paying attention, and should be moved to the edge of the path.

Route sign and removed kissing gate seen in #22104. The sign for Acre Road directs cyclists through a kissing gate seen in #50219, and thus an extra minute needs added to the journey duration time shown on the sign.

Kissing gate at entrance to Maryhill Park. This is on the route of the Kelvin Walkway, and is the Summerston scheme's off-road connection to the Kelvin Cycleway.

Sign in Maryhill Park. The right-hand sign directs cyclists to the kissing gate in #50218. To avoid this kissing gate, cyclists need to leave the park at this location (through gateway behind camera) and join local road network.

Kelvin Cycleway/Walkway at railway viaduct in Maryhill

Access to Lochgilp Street (the abandoned street blocked by bollards) and Whitelaw Street (next to modern flats) from the Kelvin Cycleway/Walkway (see also #47996)

Path junction for Lochgilp Street and Whitelaw Street on the Kelvin Cycleway/Walkway (see also #47997)

Newly rebuilt path linking Kelvingrove Park and Kelvinbridge, part of NCN 756 Kelvin Cycleway, at point where path goes from riverbank to under a former railway bridge. On the right is a former railway tunnel mouth, making this quite a tric ... [more]

Newly rebuilt path connecting Kelvingrove Park and Kelvinbridge, on NCN 756 Kelvin Cycleway, almost ready for opening. This replaces a narrow timber walkway on a difficult site, partly on a riverbank, and passes under a former railway bridg ... [more]

Gates are closed across part of the Kelvin Cycleway (NCN756) after dark. How quaint!

No sweeping of leaves, leading to slippery surface on Kelvin Walkway/Cycleway

Signs on round pole pointing in the wrong directions on Park Road

Barriers at road crossing on Kelvin Cycleway UPDATE 2015: These barriers have now been replaced, by different barriers - see #64259.

End of Ferry Road at junction with NCN 7. No double yellow lines in turning head to discourage parking from blocking dropped kerb. Motorists often park here and walk the last bit to the Riverside Museum.

Junction of NCN 7 and path to Riverside Museum, next to Clydeside Expressway

Artwork in underpass beneath road, on path between NCN 7 and Riverside Museum, next to River Kelvin

Unsigned path junction on Kelvin Walkway/Cycleway at Wyndford

Junction of Kelvin Walkway/Cycleway at Dalsholm Bridge. There is only a sign for the route across the bridge facing the other direction.

Kelvin Walkway/Cycleway at north end of NCN 756, where it goes up ramp to connect with NCN 754 on Forth & Clyde Canal (see #36201). It would be nice to have some proper destinations on the sign, rather than just the name of the canal.

Line-segregated route alongside one-way Bunhouse Road, next to Kelvin Hall, part of link from Kelvingrove Park to NCN 7 at Yorkhill, one of the earliest uses of green surfacing in Glasgow

Old School Cycling Mural next to River Kelvin near Eldon Street, not far from Kelvinbridge subway station.

Kissing gate in Maryhill Park, on the Kelvin Walkway UPDATE: This gate has now been removed (see #50220)!
