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

The Loch Lomond railway path used to carry on here, but now flats block the route as well as the expanded car showroom that initially took over some of the land. NCN7 continues along the footway across South Street to the right.

Different styles of sign on the Primrose Street off-ramp from the Loch Lomond railway path.

The Balmoral Street off-ramp from the Loch Lomond railway path. The first time I've seen a postal district on a cycle route sign.

The connection to NCN7 at Sandholm Terrace is formed with horrible concrete blocks with gaps in between.

A raised crossing across Mellerstain Drive in Yoker.

I remember being told by a council official how planning gain was going to be used to help develop the cycle route network in Glasgow. I don't think anything beneficial happened as a result of the new housing on the left.

A plastic bollard has replaced the previous metal barriers in the path (seen in #48603), but the site still needs a general tidying up.

A plastic bollard has replaced the previous metal barriers in the path.

The underpass has replaced the old railway bridge under Dyke Road.

A path could connect Speirshall Close (see #99544) to the NCN7 Loch Lomond cycle path, but there is just open ground.

The opening on the right leads to the NCN7 Loch Lomond cycle path, but there is no actual path, just open ground (see #99545).

Roadworks affecting the signed link between NCN 7 and Partick station, but not clear if the route is open or closed, no diversion, obstructions on the toucan crossing. A poor show all round!

Tree root damage to NCN 7 cycle path in Partick.

Brand Street approaching the turn into Harvie Street. But how is anyone meant to know to turn onto the shared footway rather than the carriageway at the junction?

Now that NCN7 has been moved onto the footway at Harvie Street there is a new blind corner problem. Also, why is there a priority crossing at Govan Road and no priority for crossing Brand Street?

The parallel cycle and zebra crossing has now been finished. Go left to turn right. It's also not clear what is and what is not shared use footway.

What's that rule about not parking within so many metres of a junction? A car parked blocking entrance to the cycle track, so that it becomes easier to go around the other side of the traffic island to get to Lorne Street.

No access to the cycle track from the side road. Not unique.

Could the route alignment be any worse? How about a cycle crossing straight across to the new path (see #93791) at the Village development rather than the split toucan?

If you're expecting signs for NCN 7 or 75, they are visible on the right.

I guess the best way onto the Pacific Drive shared use footway is via the toucan crossing on the left. They don't appear to think anyone would approach from this direction.

A variable width newly nominated shared-use footway alongside the Fastlink busway. Also in the picture, cycle parking for the Village development.

A 2018 Glasgow cycle infrastructure.

The new zebra and cycle parallel crossing on Govan Road has still not been completed! Note the parking layby is narrower than the vehicle parked in it.

The new zebra and cycle parallel crossing on Govan Road still hasn't been completed. Not even the shared footway surface has been finished!

Quite why this hole has been left in the road I don't know. The cycle lane has been replaced by the cycle track on the right.

The new road layout at the junction of Govan Road and Lorne Street.

Take care if you're riding south on Govan Rd - a big chunk of road surface has not been reinstated after recent resurfacing. Reported to @GlasgowCC via #FillThatHole https://t.co/LIqNPAI57X https://t.co/sM2wzw6rme

Slow progress on the parallel cycle/zebra crossing on Govan Road.

The plans show a parallel cycle/zebra crossing to go in here.

A slight adverse camber on the shiny smooth asphalt cycle track.

Corduroy tactiles were specified in the drawings and corduroy tactiles were duly installed, rather than cycleway tactiles.

The surface on the cycleway is the same shiny smooth asphalt used on the footway. Not good for grip.

Dropped kerbs have been installed at the access to the Village development (rectifying #71113), but that footway next to the stepped cycleway is so narrow!

Desire line from NCN7 path up to main road.

Desire line to Riverside Museum

Bus lane cameras. Will there be cycle lane cameras? A stepped two-way cycle track is being built along part of Govan Road, but the footway has been reduced to a minimal width, resulting in people walking on the cycle track. An extra metr ... [more]

NCN7. No idea how to do this legally, safely & avoiding grass. Carefully dodging left turning cars from main road? #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/tDWHotHSKP

Ncn7 worst designed cycle path entrance on my route. At least nettles have died down a bit now. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/QDIhlbFwMy

NCN7. Downhill stretch that dumps cycling children straight across busy road. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/yXpsWKxmSi

NCN7. Always floods here. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/5pnSklD7Hi

NCN7. Unmarked & almost invisible speed bump. No cycle bypass. My ass is still sore from first time I 'found' this. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/mEgKZ3Z6JP

NCN7. A mud pit because it's often (presumably illegally?) driven on. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/DXj0zXUQdL

National cycle route 7 again. Potholes, metal sticking out of path, random damaged concrete markers. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/XoQY8boiyK

Guess which of these poles isn't visible in low sun? Hint: it's on desired path; full of collision marks. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/UwwAntGmfG

Uphill stretch of NCN7. Almost always get tailgated here. Shameful that this is classed as a national cycle route. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/ceu7MAic2x

Another one. Still on NCN7. Unpleasant to navigate with a car behind you. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/8kmHoamQxU

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?

Not sure what this is, but wasn't designed with bikes in mind & cars regularly demolish it. National cycle route 7. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/fLJMPbMu79

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

Disappointing to see a business using cycling space to dump their goods on today @S4CGlasgow https://t.co/al31RX7tS8

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

A nice uncluttered layout leading from cycle path onto Greenlaw Road, but photo taken while waiting for others in group to mend a puncture caused by broken glass on the path.

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.

A mix of proper and homemade signs at the point where NCN7 turns to leave the Glasgow Harbour development, some of them making more sense than others. If someone cycling to the Clyde Tunnel or Victoria Park follows the green sign, they will ... [more]

NCN7, the Meadow Road underpass, and the toucan crossing across to the Glasgow Harbour development.

NCN7 at the Meadow Road underpass, with a dropped kerb for anyone heading up Meadow Road itself.

Getting from Sandy Road to NCN7 on Beith Street involves negotiating a maze of parked cars and kerbs.

The path to Bells' Bridge.

NCN 7 & 75 tight turn for Bells' Bridge. You are just meant to know where they lead to. And watch out for the bricks!

A 2-stage toucan crossing across Pacific Drive and the Fastlink busway. Is there any reason why one direct crossing in line with the path on each side could not have been used? At one bus every 10 minutes each way on the busway, it's not li ... [more]

No priority for cycling across car park access road for NCN 7 & 75 users. You have to have good eyesight to spot the small signs posted along Pacific Drive.

A random "Cyclists Dismount" sign on car park access road, approaching NCN 7 & 75 on Pacific Drive.

Although there are no shared-use signs, the position of this little NCN sign suggests that all cyclists are expected to use this bog standard footway when following the National Cycle Network routes. Or at least that squares with the work-a ... [more]

NCN 7 & 75 turn right here, but the council banned the turn on the road, so it must be made via the footway and the 3-stage toucan crossing in #87102.

Tricky 3-stage toucan crossing across Pacific Drive on NCN 7 & 75. Hopeless design! But if you are following the National Cycle Network routes, you must use it due to the banned turn in #87103.

Clydeside Path

@ErnieMarples @magnatom @FMcAveety Presumably this "cycle lane" on Govan Rd is also included in km total #pointless https://t.co/ZbbBvLyXlq

@S4CGlasgow @GlasgowCC @HelenCLondon Don't go via Pollok Park! https://t.co/oJ36FkSWE8

While the cycle parking provision at the new Village development is welcome, I think we can all see what is going to happen due to the lack of a path directly into the site from the toucan crossing. [Paving has since been provided.]

Another instance of there being no dropped kerb at the end of a path in the Village development, this time in Govan Road. [This one has since been rectified, see #95263]

Not sure I 100% understand the principle behind @Sustrans national cycle network... @carsickglasgow http://t.co/NZw3T1Ek1w

So frustrated with "National Cycle Network". I give up. Lost 4 times in 45 min (I have the @sustrans map) now this. http://t.co/jjYw0P5QZe

A large mini-roundabout with double yellow lines around the centre circle!

The toucan crossing (see #65231) is not in line with this path or the one on the far side of the road.

The Fastlink busway alongside Pacific Drive, with the multi-stage staggered toucan crossing that forms part of NCN7&75.

@carsickglasgow @GlasgowCC #desirelines south of Bell's Bridge - lights in wrong place #fastlinkmess http://t.co/YL8GhpktYv

@Byron_Silver dont forget convenient and responsive cycle crossings for the shared-use paths #glasgowcycleinfraday http://t.co/9vBrzjcCVV

Bollards to this. #glasgowcycleinfraday M8 footbridge, part of NCN7 I believe. http://t.co/tgUs0QlXZj

Govan Rd. Beneath this row of cars is a cycle lane. Better than 'door zone' across the road? #glasgowcycleinfraday http://t.co/lxOL7vpvOc

A collapsing billboard obstructing NCN7 shared-use footway on Castlebank Street near Glasgow Harbour.

A new path has been laid between Bells' Bridge and Pacific Drive. A toucan crossing has been provided across Pacific Drive and the adjacent Fastlink busway. They don't meet up and force users to make a zigzag or cut across the grass.

Shared-use footway forming NCN7 and NCN75, linking between Dumbreck Road Toucan crossing and the road into Pollok Country Park.

NCN7 and NCN75 cross the main road, Dumbreck Road, on a split stage Toucan crossing to enter Pollok Country Park to the right. The right-hand footway of Dumbreck Road is shared-use from here along Haggs Road and Pollokshaws Road to Nether A ... [more]

Although LED catseyes have been installed on part of NCN7 between Whiteinch and Scotstoun, surface defects have not been attended to, like this missing piece of tarmac

Flush LED catseye on part of NCN7 in Whiteinch. These have been installed between the current starting point of the railway path at Smith Street, and the Primrose Street off-ramp in Scotstoun.

Access road crossing on NCN7 at Yoker sports centre

New bridge at Dyke Road

Link path to Glasgow-bound NCN7 at Mellerstain Drive, but no dropped kerb. However, cycle lanes have been provided on the cul-de-sac road.

NCN7 crossing Mellerstain Drive in Yoker, next to Lidl

The cycle lanes in the cul-de-sac end before the supermarket junction, not even making it as far as the NCN7 crossing.

A 'Cyclists Dismount Here' sign has been provided at the start of a diversion over to the adjacent road around the Bell's Bridge refurbishment worksite

NCN 7 signs at the stepped footbridge across the Clydeside Expressway. The rough path straight on (see #37218) offers an alternative to dismounting, or just take the road!
