NCN756 road crossing at the north end of Piccadilly Street.

Raised crossing where NCN756 and Piccadilly Street meet.

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.

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.

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

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

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

Richmond Park closed, why not visit Glasgow Green? Well, the Polmadie Bridge is down for starters.

A pothole has appeared in the South Bank path.

The entrance to Richmond Park now doubles as the construction site entrance. NCN756 is unuseable since there is no way through to the riverside other than the steps next to Rutherglen Bridge (see #95375).

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 path to Riverside Street collapsed when the river level changed. It wasn't looking too good before that either. If I owned one of those flats, I'd be asking my councillor what was going to be done about this.

The path between Ballater Street and Waterside Street has been closed off due to its collapse. Divert to Waterside Street via McNeil Street, or to Rutherglen via NCN75 on the other side of the river (NCN756 through Richmond Park is also ... [more]

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

Some subsidence on the cycle path at Adelphi Street, not as bad as at #95383.

The South Bank cycle path, which only opened a few months previously, collapsed when the river level changed. A diversion has been arranged through the adjacent car park (see #95382).

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

Plenty of tyre tracks in the frost, and the lamppost (previously in the middle of the path as seen in #86772) has been relocated to the edge.

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.

NCN756 blocked off at Richmond Park, part of which has been sold off for a housing development. The path to the left leads to a flight of steps.

Waiting for the lights in Elderslie Street.

#NCN756 shut all week due to...dinosaurs #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/It2CTo7obq

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

Damage the water drop from the broken Clyde Weir has been serious. Major subsidence just east of the Strathclyde distillery seems active https://t.co/FyyVRaTibV

Glasgow really pushing the boat out on cycling infrastructure I see... https://t.co/xEq1oobYaI

Glasgow's first Advance Green cycle light, allowing right turns into Bridge Street for a few seconds before motor traffic gets the green light to do likewise.

A nice wide toucan crossing across Ballater Street.

There's clearly something wrong with the foundation of this path for the blocks to be like this. UPDATE MAY 2017: The path has been shut for this to be dealt with. http://www.gobike.org/closure-to-cycle-route-south-side-of-clyde-ncn756-f ... [more]

I don't know what the purpose of this barrier is, but it isn't to direct cyclists onto the road, because as we saw at #88345 they need to be on the footway to get around the barrier there.

It appears that the cycle route goes along the footway (which isn't signed as shared use) because no dropped kerbs or other arrangements have been made to get past the road closure in Waterside Street. The bollard has received stripy tape.

Not the best surface for a cycle path. A dropped kerb for joining from the carriageway would also be advantageous.

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 South Bank cycle route alongside the River Clyde.

The path past the Rowing Club is now surfaced, with LED catseye lights.

More leaf mess on the South Bank cycle path.

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

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

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

Right turn in two stages. Or play chicken with four lanes of traffic. #glasgowcycling https://t.co/HjgOdnKF7P [Ahead Only signs mean that right turn can only be made by the two-stage route.]

The cycle track crosses to the opposite side of Elderslie St at the toucan crossing.

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]

Access to the path in front of the Sheriff Court is via a dropped kerb protected by double yellow lines.

It would have been nice if this ramp had been widened a bit.

New straight and lit cyclepath replacing steps outside the Sheriff Court. The old path next to the river has been retained for pedestrians.

The cyclepath merges with the footpath, but someone has decided a full Give Way marking is required.

It's cold, so jeans and hoodie for cycling journey. The fixings for the bollard nearest the camera appear to be loose.

Apart from the pointless wiggle, quite good.

A slightly better approach to the monument than in #86781, but that kerb line sticks out into the cyclepath and might catch someone out.

Left or right at the monument? Seems it is right, but could have been made more obvious and smooth.

After what has come before, this section is comparatively good.

I can't help thinking that this sharp corner could somehow have been avoided.

Potential for an impasse

Another tape-covered lamppost that has priority over cyclists.

Slow down and Give Way to a lamppost.

Lamppost in middle of path and flight of steps protected by hatching.

Paint and stripy tape will make it better!

The new path alignment along the south bank of the Clyde, with a straight path under construction in place of previous path with steps. #84282 shows view from other end. Update of the completed path at #86787.

It's middle of the path point-makers like this who make cyclists so angry about taxi drivers https://t.co/E5nSiBxCNy

Former steps on south bank path now replaced with ramp, still with surfacing to come. #84383 shows view from other end. Updated view of completed path at #86785.

Brand new. What a shambles. This council is ripping the pish out of us, folks. https://t.co/EWsktpLR7v

The end of the George V Bridge contraflow cycle track. The options here are turning left or right onto the Clyde Place cycleway, or left onto the Clyde Place carriageway, or perhaps U-turning.

The new section of cycleway along Clyde Place.

The George V Bridge crossing in the Clyde Place cycleway, where a parallel arrangement for pedestrians and cyclists has been used.

The Clyde Street cycleway approaching the George V Bridge crossing.

The Clyde Street cycleway approaching crossing across to Carlton Place.

A parallel arrangement for cyclists and pedestrians on this toucan crossing, but not very well aligned with infrastructure either side.

Now that this dropped kerb forms part of a cycle route, it might be time to trim back the lower branches on these trees.

The end of the new protected cycle lane across Glasgow Bridge. Only a poor quality painted cycle lane continues along Bridge Street, and apparently no provision for left or right turns onto the East-West NCN756 which crosses the road at the ... [more]

The stepped cycle lane on George V Bridge is somewhat difficult to get onto from Commerce Street due to all the clutter on the footway, and potentially people waiting at the crossing. But as we can see from #82971, it is only useful for ... [more]

Road Closed, and Footway Closed, but just barriers across the cycle track. Hardly difficult to get around, though.

"Look both ways" has been added to the carriageway at the Berkeley St/Claremont St junction, in what looks like a lettering size intended for pedestrians.

New path in Kelvingrove Park, providing shortcut to NCN756, and passing playground.

Playground next to new cycle path in Kelvingrove Park, but people walking on the grass around barriers, and path itself largely regarded as part of play area.

New path with blind corner at end, in Kelvingrove Park.

New path (behind the hedge) in Kelvingrove Park, providing a shortcut to NCN756, although as yet not signed as such. Very popular with pedestrians, but the sign says it's a cycleway.

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]

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! The narrow riverside footway to Springfield Quay is ... [more]

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]

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.

A dropped kerb has been provided at the end of Carlton Place.

A new toucan crossing across Gorbals Street, next to Victoria Bridge. The path straight ahead has a short flight of steps on it (see #37094).

A new toucan crossing across Crown Street, next to Albert Bridge. I pressed the button to cross, waited, crossed during a gap in traffic, then it detected that I had crossed and cancelled the call button.

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.

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

The cycle track switches from one side of Elderslie Street to the other. Location: Anderston, Glasgow (Scotland, United Kingdom)
