NCN756 closed in North Claremont Street, with a partly obscured sign saying to dismount and use footway. But there is no footway on this side of the road, and the road itself is one-way the opposite way. The 'diversion' sign lying on the cycleway alongside the other clutter is of no help either.

According to the sign, cyclists are to give way to pedestrians on the steps and narrow, steeply graded path down to the Kelvin Walkway.

187867 Photo #187867

Part of Queen Margaret Road/Doune Quadrant has been shut to all vehicular traffic, and now Heras fencing has been put across the full width of the carriageway, preventing its use for cycling. The footway remains open and some cyclists are using that, although there is a lack of dropped kerbs to get onto it at this end.

However, the solution is not cycling on the narrow footway, but allowing it on the road. Whatever the problem is, the road is not so dangerous that it has been closed to people walking. This is a popular unadvertised cycling route through North Kelvinside and onwards towards the city centre.

The parking control traffic order for North Kelvinside has been fully implemented, including the one-way streets, and yet this Fire Path, which was proposed for opening up to cycling, remains closed to cycling.

Just as the Queen Margaret Drive cycleway (see #185851) appears to have been dropped, so this minimal cycle enhancement has also failed to appear, dispite all the hindrances to cycling being implemented.

Cycles only beyond this point? The one on the nearside of the crossing should not be there, and signs to diagram 955 should have the bicycle symbol with the front wheel to the left.

Just after I took the photo, a delivery van driver used the level area of the cycleway and footway as a turning circle.

It's great that the path from Netherton Road to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath has been widened and resurfaced, but those bollards are just in the way at the point of a blind corner. Put them at the road end of the path where they would be easier to get past.

The kerb approaching from the western part of Netherton Road and Spencer Street (see #100265) remains an issue.

One thing that is quite disappointing on the Garscube Rd project is the minor junction design, what is going on with these bell mouths, no sharp kerb / ramp up from either direction - really promotes fast driving without taking due care. t.co/Rt11zNy1Fa
