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 … [more]

"Footpath Closed" - the footway wasn't closed, it was the cycleway.

A temporary closure of NCN75 Clyde Walkway starts tomorrow, for 7 months, as far as the Smart Bridge. Yet again, the steep ramp at the Rutherglen Bridge access point here (see #98398 and #71262), will be showing how useful replacing it … [more]

Works have started at the Snow Bridge.

The Fastlink busway over the Clyde Arc bridge has been shut for COP26, with the other carriageway in effect becoming a busway (with cycling allowed), as seen in #175363.

I was surprised at how flimsy this barrier was, compared to all the others. Maybe there's a wall of steel barrier further on.

A COP26 security gate has been installed beneath the railway bridge at Ferry Road. A similar installation has also been provided at the bottom of Kelvinhaugh Street. I met an annoyed pedestrian who had been turned back to find another route … [more]

Anybody spot the issue here? 👀 The diversion for cycling during #COP26 is a mess. It’s inaccessible. It’s not signed correctly. It’s not a route that people want that makes them feel safe. https://t.co/6bNuDzihB0

People make Glasgow difficult to cycle around. Another closure of McPhater Street on the Colleges Cycle Route. The parallel main road behind is not closed.

Sighthill regeneration continues. From the width of this path, and the toucan crossings at the junction, it appears it may be a shared-use path in place of the Glasgow to Cumbernauld cycle route path that used to be here.

Still plenty to do to connect up the replacement bridge across the M8 motorway between Townhead and Sighthill.

Sauchiehall Street cycleway closed for works. No obvious attempt to sign a diversion route. See also #173268.

Kelvin Way closed to motor traffic to allow more room for walking and cycling. Nothing to say that the road closure is exempting cycles, but people seem to have got the message regardless. Unusually, one of the parking bays extends into … [more]

This is a very narrow stretch of the Kelvin walkway and with Inn Deep now offering a take away service the narrow path is overly clogged making passing safely very very difficult.

Close junction between Station Road & Drummore Road to reduce the amount of through-traffic on Station Road where there are very narrow pavements, and a significant increase in the number of pedestrians and cyclists accessing Colquhoun Park … [more]

Close the road permanently please

Byres road needs to be clsoed to all traffic bar deliveries at set times. This is long overdue and the pavements are too crowded to adaquately socially distance
