163897Photo #163897The new cycle track along Old Dumbarton Road. In addition to the top surface (in the foreground) not being machine laid, the tactiles are incorrect Corduroy/Hazard type and not the Tramlines/Cycleway type. Being at the foot of a hill, these will sooner or later grab someone's tyre and throw them off their bike.

It is not clear how the junction with the cycle track in Bunhouse Road (on the right) will be formed yet.

163896Photo #163896The new cycle track on Old Dumbarton Road has expensive stone kerbs and divider strips, but the top surface has not been machine laid, so is lumpy and uneven. Disappointing.

Meanwhile, work continues on building the new bridge across the canal at Stockingfield Junction, connecting paths on each side, and due for completion summer 2022.
