NCN7 alongside the Clydeside Expressway, with the right-hand verge encroaching onto the path.

Low overhanging tree branches all along this section of path next to the Clydeside Expressway, restricting visibility and the ability to use the full width of the path.

In need of some basic maintenance, overhanging branches and unswept surface on the cycle off-slip from Balshagray Avenue.

A "Happy Way", but the bushes are taking nearly half the width of the path.

Overgrown bushes along the path towards Pollok House from the southern side of the Pollok Estate. This was in the process of being cut back a little distance further on.

Cycle art produced by a local school on the wall at the entrance to the Drumchapel Way at Drummore Road, but no maintenance done to trim the overhanging branches or to the path surface.

The footway of Hillington Road (at least part of which is shared-use) is loosing width to the bush, which will need cut back at some point. The toucan crossing connects Penilee and Hillington as part of a minimal signage quietway style c ... [more]

The signs at the foot of the footbridge connecting the two parts of Beech Avenue across the M8 motorway. The direction sign is obscured by tree braches, and not visible if following the original Paisley to Glasgow cycle route (an important ... [more]

The path between Cartcraigs Road and Kennishead Road is a little overgrown, but may not see use for much longer since the nearby railway bridge (see #169924) is proposed for demolition.

The path from Canniesburn Road going over to join the Garscadden Way and Drumchapel Way.

Vegetation encroaching onto path near Gower Street, and evidence of people going across the grass instead.

The Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane at the turn-off for the canal path. Since the cycle lane stops at Lincoln Avenue, this is where many will leave it for the longer route to town along the canal path. The sign is obscured by tree bran ... [more]

The counter at the Anderston Bridge appears to have been abandoned. See update at #168811.

The path connecting the Forth & Clyde Canal to Netherton Road next to the David Lloyd centre is in a very poor condition, not just a poor and narrow surface but quite overgrown too.

The nettles are starting to take over the path again.

Poor forward visibility on the bit of the Kelvin Walkway that dips down next to the river then climbs back up quite steeply (out of sight around the bend).

A signed link to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, but unsurfaced and overgrown. Not the same link as shown in #100262.

Parts of the Kelvin Walkway could do with a sweep and having the low-hanging branches cut back.

Access to the Brock Burn path here is by steps over the flood defences.

The narrow path between the A89 and Bargeddie Parish Church gets wider for a bit, but much of the benefit is negated by the vegetation. However, it probably copes fine with the present level of use.

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

Route sign hidden by tree branches until the last moment, on narrow shared-use footway.

On joining the shared-use footway from Aikenhead Road I almost collided with another person on a bike coming the other way at this blind corner. Poor sightlines here. Additionally, the writing on the direction sign is so small that it is ... [more]

The Kelvin Walkway goes down the steps and into thick vegetation. I gave this section a miss!

The improved section of path doesn't even stretch as far as the bridge. The path beyond here is even worse!

Spot the path. Don't bother trying to cycle this one just yet. However, Sustrans is part-funding a new path near here called the Levern Valley Way: "The project will connect Barrhead to Glasgow and close a major hole in the network by u ... [more]
