The gully in #51324 is now blocked with mud.

The 20mph outside the school ends and reverts to 30mph half way along the school building.

Anyone not turning left must leave the protected cycle lane and use the anonymous advance stop line.

Damaged cycle parking stand on the corner Kent Road and Elderslie Street.

The badly placed lamppost referred to in #176480 causes users to end up crossing the tactile paving on a diagonal course, due to the poor planning of the cycleway alignment.

Having started with a clean slate, it is disappointing to see such a misalignment at the end of the West Street cycleway. The badly placed lamppost forces users to choose between going one side or the other, one of which means that they wil ... [more]

The replacement Clyde Place cycleway is finally open. Here it meets the South West City Way.

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).

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

Preparing to shut the Stobcross Bridge for COP26.

Preparing to shut the Stobcross Bridge for COP26.

The Stobcross Bridge is to be shut during the COP26 conference for some sort of security reason.

A new section of cycle track at West Street, showing junction with Clyde Place cycle track. See #169987 for view in opposite direction.

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]

Construction work at Clyde Place, including a replacement cycle path and cycle parking. The riverside path is open (to the right).

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

The Tradeston Bridge is presently shut for work to be done.

Building work continues at Clyde Place. The cycle track approaching the Tradeston Bridge has been rebuilt. However, the position of the temporary railing directed me onto the new kerb which I wasn't expecting.

An asphalt ramp in place of a dropped kerb at the end of the Stobcross Street service road, probably as good as the location can hope for. The path leads to the Stobcross Bridge and NCN756.

The counter at the Anderston Bridge has now been removed.

No progress on rebuilding the south bank path (damaged by subsidence).

The person seen in #168687 gets frustrated at the lack of green signal on the cycle track and moves into the main carriageway to cross St Vincent Street legally on the Elderslie Street green.

Lack of cycle priority at cycle traffic signals on Elderslie Street. This person was already waiting as I arrived, when traffic on St Vincent Street had the green. See also #168688.

Nonsense bollards.

Diversion signage for the Stockingfield canal path closure. The signs have been fixed quite low down the pole.

Route signs and temporary diversion signs for the Stockingfield canal towpath closure. Lots of leaves are rotting away, awaiting being swept off the Kelvin Walkway.

Nothing to warn NCN756 and West City Way users that there is a locked gate preventing egress from Kelvingrove Park ahead, and that the nearest way out is onto Kelvingrove Street to the right.

Due to problems with public disorder on hot sunny days, various gates to Kelvingrove Park have been locked shut. This is one of the gates that was supposed to be left open, yet it is chained and locked shut. Simple for me to divert aroun ... [more]

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

The footway and cycleway remain open during Network Rail bridge works above Clyde Place.

Cycle parking on Gorbals Street near the Sheriff Court.

The residents have decided to park all over the cycleway.

Still no progress on fixing the riverside path.

It's March and last autumn's leaf mess is still plaguing the Kelvin Walkway. Overtrousers or a change of trousers required on wet days, even with full length mudguards.

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. See also #173269. At the same time, Glasgow City Council is progressing with plans to implement a contraflow cycle facility in Blyt ... [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.
