A driver reversing and turning, having seen the previous driver head down towards Argyle Street to find the way now blocked. See also #183413.

Detectors have been installed in the Argyle Street footway at the crossing to Bunhouse Road, not just on the side that cyclists will be approaching from, but also on this side which is not part of any cycleway. The signals remain bagged, ha ... [more]

A detector has been installed in the Bunhouse Road cycleway, but is so close to the traffic signal users will have almost stopped before being detected.

Still no reinstatement of bollards to stop drivers from using this pedestrian and cycle route as an access route to and from the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. The bollards were removed for the COP26 dinner.

The sign reads "No vehicular access to Argyle Street" but is covered in graffiti. A sign at Argyle Street suggests this is part of the West City Way council cycle route. A case where 'No Motor Vehicles' should be used, and the bollards rein ... [more]

With only one original cycle hire parking stand remaining, the hire bikes are taking over the visitor cycle parking at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery.

The Bunhouse Road cycleway signals at Argyle Street remain under wraps.

A zebra crossing on the Bunhouse Road cycleway. This one has tactile paving for pedestrians on one side only.

Ponding on the Bunhouse Road cycleway.

The bollards (see #172619) that were removed for the COP26 conference dinner at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery still have not been replaced, and taxi drivers are using the pedestrian crossing as a shortcut to exit the car park.

With the local elections approaching, I'd have thought that there would be a little more urgency to get the cycle routes that have been built already properly up and running, but no, the Argyle Street crossing has been rebagged. (See also # ... [more]

The Old Dumbarton Road cycleway still has incorrect corduroy (Hazard) tactile paving, and for some manoeuvers from Bunhouse Road, it is so close to the junction that cyclists will still be turning when crossing it. Leaf and other autumn ... [more]

The Bunhouse Road cycleway crosses Old Dumbarton Road without priority, and illegal parking restricts visibility.

The Bunhouse Road cycleway priority crossing as seen from the car park. Restricted visibility, tiny Give Way markings and an offside information sign.

Priority has returned to the Bunhouse Road cycleway at the car park entrance, but has been indicated by a random use of miniature Give Way markings as the only indication of this.

Zebra crossings across both the carriageway and cycleway on Bunhouse Road. It is unclear whether pedestrians are allowed or barred from the former shared use footway.

Zebra crossings across both the carriageway and cycleway in Bunhouse Road.

Although now completely unbagged, the cycle traffic signal at Bunhouse Road doesn't seem to ever change to green.

Although now completely unbagged, the cycle traffic signals at the end of Argyle Street don't seem to ever change to green. The approach is still a mess.

The route sign at Kelvingrove Art Gallery has been reinstated after COP26. Interestingly, the walking and cycling directions to some destinations are different. The Kelvin Hall is referred to as Kelvinhall. The shortest route to the univers ... [more]

The Benalder Street/Argyle Street crossing still awaits commissioning, and signage for former car parking spaces awaits removal. New works have started on the Snow Bridge across the junction, making access trickier.

The cycle traffic signals for the Bunhouse Road/Argyle Street crossing still await commissioning.

The sign seen in #95295 to warn (or inform since it wasn't a warning sign) of the cycle track crossing has gone missing. Also, the tactile paving for the pedestrian crossing has several tyre tracks across it.

The temporary segregation at the south end of Kelvin Way has temporarily been removed for COP26, and although the fences have now been removed from around the Kelvingrove Art Gallery, the segregation has not yet been replaced. The 'Road Clo ... [more]

The cycle signals at the Argyle Street crossing have been partly uncovered. The tactile paving on this side of the pedestrian crossing has been removed, as have the bollards.

The COP26 fence completely obstructs the riverside path that forms part of the Kelvin Walkway, and although there is a gate and it is open, it opens onto the remaining width of the path blocking it.

A fence has been built all around the Kelvingrove Art Gallery for the COP26 event. It blocks the footway (the one that might be shared-use due to the one-way carriageway) and the gate only opens across the carriageway,

"Diversion cyclists dismount" on Waterloo Street. No explanation as to where the diversion leads (other than an NCN7 emblem), or any obvious reason why cyclists might need to dismount. There were no further signs to be seen further along th ... [more]

The cycle route diversion sign on the left-hand side of the road is not particularly noticable from the West City Way cycleway.

No Left Turn from Blythswood Street into the Waterloo Street two-way cycle track.

The brand new cycleway on Old Dumbarton Road covered in leaves.

The end of the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway in Ferry Road is now usable.

The Old Dumbarton Road cycleway has now been cleared of obstructions at the Ferry Road junction. The raised crossing has been installed and awaits lining. Some bollards might be in order too.

A council van has been parked on the footway at the entrance to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery car park, obstructing families trying to walk past. The footway also forms part of the West City Way cycleway, since the adjacent carriageway is one ... [more]

Several planters on Kelvin Way have been pushed aside, some of them are obstructing the cycleway. Fly parking is occurring without enforcement.

The incomplete Old Dumbarton Road cycleway is unusable for cycling, but is being used for parking vans.

The slab paving work at Ferry Road is now complete but the asphalt footway remains to be finished. Some graffiti has been painted over, but new graffiti has appeared. The obstruction seen in #173875 has been removed. The former cycle dir ... [more]

The dropped kerb at the end of Ferry Road is now clear from obstructions (see #173875), but the footway surface is still incomplete.

Roadworks continue on Ferry Road. The surface on the footway is still incomplete. Updated at #175001 and #175002.

The building of the Old Dumbarton Road cycle track continues at the Benalder Street/Ferry Road junction, and shows no sign of being complete in time for the COP26 diversion route coming this way. There is a high kerb at the end of the cycle ... [more]

The diagonal cycle crossing from Bunhouse Road to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery still awaits commissioning.

The shared footway in Bunhouse Road has been covered in beige surfacing, except for a gap just beyond the crossing. The main pedestrian egress from the car park comes up the ramp on the left.

Just a small partly hidden rectangular sign on the off-side to warn drivers of the cycle track crossing at the exit from the Bunhouse Road Car Park.

Still finishing work to be done on the rebuilt Bunhouse Road shared footway, and still no indication of priorities at the car park entrance.

Still finishing work to be done on the rebuilt Bunhouse Road shared foootway, and the cycle route sign is pointing the wrong way, and least for Loch Lomond.

Still finishing work to be done on Old Dumbarton Road, and not looking likely to be finished in time for the COP26 diversion route coming this way. UPDATE: The raised crossing has now been installed. See #175266.

The diagonal crossing from Bunhouse Road awaiting commissioning. See also #172619.

The crossings at the Old Dumbarton Road/Benalder Street junction still await raised carriageways, so these two had to bump the kerb in order to join the cycleway. UPDATE: This issue has now been resolved, see #175144.

The crossings on Old Dumbarton Road still do not have raised carriageways, so continue to hinder cycling across. However, the cycleway is still blocked further along.

The shared footway on Bunhouse Road has been rebuilt, but has not had its dividing line reinstated. The zebra crossing has a random section of tactile paving nearby with no obvious purpose.

The toucan crossing across Argyle Street has been replaced by a pedestrian crossing and a separate cycle crossing. However, the approach is a bit cramped behind a bit of wall. See also #173170.

A four-arm sign at a six-arm junction. Plenty of room for confusion, but most of the destinations on this side, where there is a choice of three routes, are already within sight. The Kelvin Hall has also been written as one word.

The counter at the Anderston Bridge has now been removed.

Flooding across the West City Way in Kelvingrove Park. Not as deep as the previous time I went through it.

Keep Left pedestrians on the West City Way in Kelvingrove Park. But puddle ahead.

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.

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]

Waterloo Street, at the end of the proper protected cycle lane, and the start of the divided footway with bumpy paving for the cycle side (see #95475). I notice from Google Streetview and OSM that there appears to be something similar go ... [more]

The Hope Street contraflow cycle lane, part of the West City Way, and leading to the Waterloo Street protected cycle lane.

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

A puddle on the West City Way in Kelvingrove Park.

I'm not sure what the barriers here are meant to achieve, or why they are blocking the flagship cycleway on Waterloo Street.

The segregated cycle lane on Waterloo st at 9am today, right next to the @nextbikeUK stop. Reg: S6 DAT. #cycling #glasgow https://t.co/dBE1y4pG0o

The newly built section of the Waterloo St cycle track has been surfaced with little stone blocks, and features this sharp deviation around a new layby. In the background is the toucan crossing across to the Anderston Bridge.

A brand new section of cycle track on Waterloo St, which has been surfaced with silly stone blocks, with little to distinguish it from the footway, unlike the rest of Waterloo St where the distinction is much clearer.

Just a small sign away from the main line of sight to warn of the cycle track crossing the access road to the Bunhouse Car Park, and no indication of priority.

Still no sign as to whether this widened footway is shared use or not, now that the one-way carriageway is unusable for cycling in the other direction. However, there is this parking sign where no parking is allowed.

Literally nowhere else to park! (*not)

West City Way, Glasgow. Flagship cycling infrastructure. Dismount and use pavement. Pathetic. https://t.co/wU0gexsvJZ [See also #93831]

Waiting for the lights in Elderslie Street.

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 when you are jealous of the railings the school have and want some to help protect your bike lane. https://t.co/BmLaHleRD1

An ambiguous sign at Partick Bridge. Is the cycle route to the City Centre along Argyle Street or around the Kelvingrove Art Gallery car park? And whereabouts does it join NCN7?

@twanduiv @GoBikeGlasgow @GlasgowCC @TwoWheeledTank city West way be gone to be replaced with horrendous non bike detour https://t.co/hIiKqwZ395

The start of the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway in Ferry Road is completely anonymous.

The point on Old Dumbarton Road where the cycleway crosses to the opposite footway.

The Bunhouse Road cycle track partially blocked due to it being used as a dumping ground for materials during roadworks on Argyle St/Dumbarton Road. The van parked on the footway beyond the cordoned off area was blocking the dropped kerb fo ... [more]

A sign for the West City Way at Kelvingrove Art Galleries, with no further explanation. In the background, someone unlocking a hire bike.

Cars being parked on the Kelvin Walkway and West City Way, because someone has removed some of the bollards that mark the limit of the car park.

WCW, at least he only blocked half of the cycle lane https://t.co/Mj7W9Fqq3P

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

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