A map showing the full diversion route for the Stockingfield canal towpath closure. Similar signs are located at the Kelvin Aqueduct and at Stockingfield Junction itself, possibly elsewhere too. The canal towpath is open up to Stockingfi ... [more]

Ashfield Street has been closed at Mansion Street, with concrete blocks across the road. There is just enough room between the blocks for a standard bicycle. This has been in place for a number of years now, and could be formalised into a p ... [more]

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]

The barriers for the pop-up closure in Hanover Street are possible to cycle around on a standard bicycle, but awkward. New cycle parking has been installed too. It would make a lot of sense for this to become a permanent road closure, wi ... [more]

Associated with the new bus gate on George Square, Hanover Street has been made for 'Local Access Only'. Hanover Street is part of a north-south route for cycle access across the city centre.

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

If Langdale St was closed to motor traffic at Royston Rd, through traffic would be diverted along more suitable through roads like Provanmill Rd, leaving Langdale St as a quieter environment rather than a rat run.

City centre closure to allow social distancing and shared cycling space free from cars

The covered walkway at the SECC is temporarily closed, due to the use of the building as a temporary hospital.

Unfortunate that part of the Clyde Walkway is still closed after fire last year. Mind you, it was narrowest bit (between Kingston bridge and Squinty bridge). At least the road is quieter now and easier for distancing. Still not sure what wi ... [more]

The Clyde Place cycleway has been shut for building works, but a diversion has been established via the riverside walkway.

@GoBikeGlasgow @AnnaLangside @GlasgowCC @SPTcorporate @GlasgowSubway @collin_little @GlasgowEcoTrust no idea what's happening under bridge at West St by SW City Way - some sort of stage getting set up - no diversion signs, narrow pavements ... [more]

Bridge maintenance work at the Snow Bridge. See also #100431.

Part of Richmond Park has been sold off by the council to a housing developer.

The path into Richmond Park doesn't actually connect to the main part of the path at the moment due to further house building.

The path beyond the fence in #95371 has already been built, but isn't being maintained since it is within a construction site.

The path to Ballater Street closed due to the damage seen in #95387.

The path to Riverside Street collapsed when the river level changed. It wasn't looking too good before that either. If I owned one of those flats, I'd be asking my councillor what was going to be done about this.

The path between Ballater Street and Waterside Street has been closed off due to its collapse. Divert to Waterside Street via McNeil Street, or to Rutherglen via NCN75 on the other side of the river (NCN756 through Richmond Park is also ... [more]

Some subsidence on the cycle path at Adelphi Street, not as bad as at #95383.

The path south from Pinkston Road has now closed.

Building works at Partick Bus Station have meant that the point where cyclists join Merkland St carriageway has now been closed, and cyclists are forced to share a narrow footway already obstructed by (unrelated) scaffolding. However, t ... [more]

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

The gates have been locked shut across the Kelvin Cycleway/NCN756 for the duration of a dinosaurs event in Botanic Gardens.

The as yet unopened cycleway beneath the Bredisholm Road bridge, next to the M8 motorway. The path appears to be routed around a SUDS pond, after which it rejoins a position adjacent to the motorway. Not sure a road would be designed like t ... [more]

The as yet unopened cycleway beneath the Bredisholm Road bridge, next to the M8 motorway. Note that the signs at the junction with Brediholm Road are for destinations requiring a sharp turn and no destination is given for straight ahead.

Damage the water drop from the broken Clyde Weir has been serious. Major subsidence just east of the Strathclyde distillery seems active https://t.co/FyyVRaTibV

NCN75 closed at the SECC due to the Festival of Motoring of all things.

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

Rogerfield Road appears to have been commandeered for the motorway widening project. Another loss for active travel. Does Core Path status actually mean anything?

The new bridge over the railway line at Bredisholm Road is not finished.

NCN7 ahead and possibly NCN75 across Bells Bridge shut for a running event. The sign refers to a diversion but it is not clear where the diversion signs are. See also #90343.

The replacement path under the new A8(M) bridge does not look like being a priority for Transport Scotland. The only path under Scotland's shortest motorway!

Apparently Polmadie Bridge was found to be in such a perilous state that it had to be shut immediately, including closing the paths and river beneath it! Demolition is due to start on 12 October 2015. No replacement bridge has been proposed ... [more]

Road closure in Minerva St for the Commonwealth Games. The covered walkway to the SECC is also closed.

"Cycle Route SUSPENDED" for Commonwealth Games Always a good idea to give some sort of diversion signage (see #59999)

Temporary closure of the Kelvin Walkway due to cracking appearing in path high above river bank.

Temporary closure of Kelvin Walkway due to cracking appearing on section of path high above the riverbank. The diversion is via Garrioch Road.

This signposted route has been closed. Behind the barrier is a great rubble pile from a demolished tower block, so evidently the route has been and will be closed for some time. No alternative route is posted, but you can get to the bri ... [more]
