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.

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.

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.

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

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Cobbles in Carlton Place

New riverside path between Richmond Park and Gorbals which is mostly fine, but soft surface is suffering from some washing out on slope at rowing club building. [UPDATE: Now surfaced with asphalt, see #88172]
