They've finally removed one of the worst barriers on the NCN into Ross Hall Park. Could barely get a regular bike through it let alone in anything slightly bigger before. #spaceforcycling #accessibility https://t.co/4RsK7C80uN [See #9381 ... [more]

It is days like today that highlight how car centric Glasgow is. Almost 50% of Glaswegians don't have access to a private car. While the roads were ice free, the paths were like ice rinks. #activetravel #travelpoverty https://t.co/vhkNFMcgc ... [more]

The rebuilt Polmadie Bridge is now open. See also #102058.

The rebuilt Polmadie Bridge is now open. See also #102059.

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.

This traffic island needs a gap to allow signalled cycle access between the Tradeston Bridge and York Street. It could also be used for right turns from Broomielaw (for those coming from Blythswood St and James Watt St) towards the Tradesto ... [more]

The shared use sign (see #65297) for the Broomielaw footway has been removed and signs now direct cyclists to the Clyde Walkway. But old habits die hard.

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 surface on the ramp between Broomielaw and the Clyde Walkway has been reinstated. A sign proclaims "access improvements". Ah, it's slightly wider (see #88473).

Access to NCN75 Clyde Walkway is possible from Dunlop Street (and from the cycle track at Stockwell Place #30509), but not vice versa since Dunlop Street is one-way.

Now that the excellent new ramp next to Victoria Bridge has been built, the gates that so often blocked the former route of NCN75 (see #31366) seem to be left open much of the time.

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

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.

Despite the Clyde Gateway road and new police headquarters being built alongside, the cobbled ramp still remains unaltered. A flight of concrete steps has been provided for access to the police headquarters.

An interesting bollard, but access to the cycle path from the carriageway of Cotton Street involves either cycling along the footway or bumping the low kerb and going through the dirt.

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.

In response to a request for suggestions for minor improvement works, I contacted the council suggesting a dropped kerb at this location and received the following response: "Following an inspection of the cycle path access at Dalmarnock ... [more]

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.

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!

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]

The line of the Monkland canal, now filled in

M8 was built on the Monkland Canal

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

NCN75 closed at the SECC due to the Festival of Motoring of all things.

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

Nice job! Makes cycling along the Clyde so much nicer @GlasgowCC @SustransScot #NCN75 https://t.co/pSQNMVmIkn

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.

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

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

This ramp forms part of NCN75 and has been closed for a few weeks. See #88472.

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]

A terrible layout for the Broomielaw shared-use footway at the Fastlink busway. See also #88469.

A narrow blind corner on the Broomielaw shared-use footway, with some upstand for anyone approaching from a position where they can see at least some way around the corner.

As if the Broomielaw shared-use footway wasn't bad enough in its own right, there is vertical upstand on the kerb at this private car park entrance.

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 Cotton Street access to the Clyde Walkway. A choice of going onto the footway on the approach, or bumping the kerb next to the gate.

The Shore Street access to the Clyde Walkway.

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

The Clyde Walkway needs swept, like many off-road cyclepaths in Glasgow.

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

Still no dropped kerb at cycle path access point next to Dalmarnock Bridge.

A clear desire line for a ramp to the Clyde Walkway where there is only steps on this side of Dalmarnock Road.

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

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.

No crossing to get to the riverside or NCN75 from James Watt St, and way blocked by a continuous railing. At the same time, Glasgow City Council is progressing with plans to implement a contraflow cycle facility in Blythswood St that wou ... [more]

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.

To indicate a minor road will be closed, half of NCR75 is closed off to cyclists and pedestrians. https://t.co/GbHTksrdce

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.

A car parked on NCN75.

Infra stops functioning when 4+ cyclists (never mind pedestrians) use it at once. Built to fail. https://t.co/SKX6GH02q2 [See also #80717]

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

Cycled 18 miles home #TeamGlasgow No room to pass here, even without pedestrians @GlasgowCC is #lettingtheteamdown https://t.co/XJmpyAGInk

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

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! Of the destinations listed, only Richmond Park is o ... [more]

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]

If you're wanting to follow NCN756, this is your turn off.

Car parking obstructing NCN75/NCN756 on the Clyde Walkway at the Broomielaw.

Cycle parking next to the Fastlink bus stop.

The ramp up from the Clyde Walkway to the Clyde Gateway is still steep and cobbled, yet the new Police Headquarters has a shiny flight of steps!

Despite the money spent on the road and on the adjacent newly built Police Headquarters, the ramp for cycling down to the Clyde Walkway is still steep and cobbled.

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.

@glasgowCC the public realm/shared use at Broomielaw gets worse!Get a grip! https://t.co/wBc629Ao2A

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]

The junction of NCN75 and NCN756 beneath the Kingston Bridge is still signed solely with stickers.
