Oh good. Cobbles https://t.co/jb9o6qoSez

The path from the Forth & Clyde Canal footbridge at Old Farm Road over to Netherton Road is in a very poor condition (still). What doesn't show up in the photograph is the step between the asphalt surface and the washed-out unsealed path.

The new bridge at Stockingfield Junction is taking shape.

No change to the barrier at the Kelvindale access to the Forth & Clyde Canal.

Surface dressing has been applied to the canal towpath between Yoker and Clydebank.

There is a lack of a dropped kerb to allow access to the canal towpath at the end of the car park at Firhill. A temporary ramp has been provided, but this is possibly related to the construction work on the bridge to the Claypits nature res ... [more]

The resurfaced section of the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath will tie into the work at Stockingfield Junction, where a bridge is being built across the canal.

Although the main towpath has been resurfaced, nothing has been done about the poor connection from the towpath to the path to Vaila Street. In addition to local access, this is important for making connections between the canal and Summers ... [more]

A section of Forth & Clyde Canal towpath has been resurfaced, between Cadder and Stockingfield.

The signs for the Forth & Clyde Canal diversion (see #155655) are no longer pointing the correct ways.

Still no connection between the towpath and Great Western Road on the south side of the dual carriageway. But a clear worn desire line up the embankment. The north side access at #145337 is left on, left off on the eastbound carriageway, ... [more]

Signage relating to the Stockingfield Junction canal towpath closure for construction of a new bridge.

The Forth & Clyde Canal towpath is now shut at Stockingfield Junction for construction of a new bridge. Signed diversions have been put in place. In the opposite direction, the closure is at Ruchill Street. On the opposite bank, the path ... [more]

A map showing the full diversion route for the Stockingfield canal towpath closure. Similar signs are located at the Kelvin Aqueduct and at Stockingfield Junction itself, possibly elsewhere too. The canal towpath is open up to Stockingfi ... [more]

Permanent route signs and temporary diversion signs relating to the Stockingfield canal path closure, but who would know? The temporary diversion signs should be yellow. The canal towpath is open up to Stockingfield Junction, but only to ... [more]

Claypits Nature Reserve bridge under construction over the Forth & Clyde Canal.

A new bridge being constructed across the Forth & Clyde Canal at Firhill.

I've never worked out if these strips are badly installed drainage (for the boggy grass to the right), or anti-cycling rumble strips. A swimming contest can be seen in the background.

There is an unmarked speed hump either side of the Cleveden Road bridge on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, which are quite hard to spot if you don't know they are there.

One route sign has two poles and is pointing the right way, but one of the signs sharing lamppost is pointing the wrong way. Plus a rather messy path junction.

Is Bowling over the bridge? No.

A pole minus its signs. Now just Sustrans stickers.

Signs pointing in random directions on the path linking the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath to Duntreath Avenue and Great Western Road.

A path linking the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath to Duntreath Avenue.

An unsurfaced link to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath from the end of a residential part of Netherton Road. See also #100261.

A canal towpath access path, unsigned, and comprising just a dirt path. Why is this not surfaced to the same standard as the main path?

An extremely narrow section of path along the canal below the Ruchill St bridge. Shameful that something so bad could have been built in modern times! See update at #185407.

The canal path goes under a modern road bridge on a very narrow section of path (see #92011), but it is possible to bypass it by going up the ramp to Ruchill St and crossing to rejoin the canal path beyond the bridge.

A barrier with a gap at the side on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath.
