There were no signs for the Drumchapel Way at the junctions at either end of Hecla Avenue, only this one midway along the street.

The sign on the right gives destinations and distances, but does not have an arrow, so is effectively a route confirmation sign of the type that should be provided after a junction, not before it. The destinations can be reached by turni ... [more]

A route sign not pointing the correct way to the Forth & Clyde Canal. And if that's a cycle parking stand, it may be better positioned in front of the shops, not at the rear. On the plus side, a dropped kerb has been installed since #332 ... [more]

One route sign has two poles and is pointing the right way, but one of the signs sharing lamppost is pointing the wrong way. Plus a rather messy path junction.

Route signs pointing in various directions, facing people coming from the Forth & Clyde Canal at Blairdardie. Wheelchair users appear to have been forgotten about in the signs pointing to the unnamed railway station (Drumchapel).

Signs for getting to Drumchapel station by different modes. Wheelchair users should ignore the directions given here if going to the eastbound platform, since the footbridge at the station is stepped. There are no cycle facilities on the ro ... [more]

The sign in #100506 facing the wrong way and a sign for the westbound platform at an unnamed railway station. The direction to the eastbound platform is different and the sign for it is visible in the distance.

A damaged sign facing the wrong way.

Is Bowling over the bridge? No.

A sign for the Forth & Clyde Canal pointing the wrong way, and 'No Through Road' signs on the road that leads there, without 'except cycles' plates.

A pole minus its signs. Now just Sustrans stickers.

Signs pointing in random directions on the path linking the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath to Duntreath Avenue and Great Western Road.

A signed link to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, but unsurfaced and overgrown. Not the same link as shown in #100262.

A route sign for the spur from the Glasgow-Cumbernauld cycle route to the Colleges cycle route facing the wrong way. In the background, the anonymous ramp to the North Hanover Street shared footway (see also #98888).

Now that the riverside path has reopened, I notice a sign for NCN75 pointing up the old diversion around the former Polmadie Bridge, and now that path has shut for work on the old bridge piers.

The route sign directs cyclists up a flight of steps at the new eatery, where once there was a path into the park (see #29467). This is not good enough!

Despite the footway of residential Old Polmadie Road being designated as shared-use (see #98669), the narrow footway of the busy New Rutherglen Road has not. However, this non-standard route signage seems to assume it has been. A new eat ... [more]

A route sign hidden behind a tree on Nithsdale Road.

A sign giving directions along the path on the other side of the roundabout, but no actual crossing of Shieldhall Road at the roundabout.

Direction sign for secure cycle parking in Cadogan Square partly obscured by whatever UB07 signifies. The size of the text also makes it hard to see, and the sign at the next junction is even less conspicuous.

Two sets of route signs giving directions over the dismantled Polmadie Bridge.

A route sign for the Cumbernauld route pointing the wrong way.

The Sighthill diversion is via a flight of steps!

I'm not sure the risk assessment for the Sighthill diversion route has been completed correctly.

The Sighthill diversion route is obstructed by an undropped kerb.

this sign continuing NCR7 towards Balloch near the Riverside Museum is very craftily hidden behind copious greenery #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/7UOL2UFpqv

Since posting this, I've been informed of the correct route using Kinnell Avenue. VERY poor signage. Mosspark Dr is hectic at rush hour #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/1DBKMerLHc

[via email] Riverside to Glasgow Harbour - confusing shared space: Toucan crossing but no shared pavement signs #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/A2n8EIHMnB

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?

Nice wide new shared use path, part of Cardonald-> Southern General route. Could do with a sign to say so though! #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/okwtkW4xoV

There is an 'End of Cycle Route' sign, but the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route continues to the right. It's the route from Haggs Road that's ending.

A mix of proper and homemade signs at the point where NCN7 turns to leave the Glasgow Harbour development, some of them making more sense than others. If someone cycling to the Clyde Tunnel or Victoria Park follows the green sign, they will ... [more]

Since my last visit here (see #88189) a route confirmation sign for NCN75 has appeared, but no directional signage.

The route sign directs cyclists to the flight of steps under the bridge, when they need to use the ramp up to street level. However, the ramp to street level has been partially dismantled, and has been left like this for a few weeks (see al ... [more]

A sign giving directions to Glasgow Green, but the bridge has been taken away, meaning that the best direction now is to the right joining the signed diversion.

The Smart Bridge connects NCN75 with NCN756 on the opposite bank of the River Clyde. But the only signage is by means of Sustrans stickers.

Since the cycle route is closed for the next 3 years while Sighthill is redeveloped, it might be an idea to take down or cover up this sign. The park is no more, so take those signs away at the same time.

A diversion sign for pedestrians and cyclists (like #87688) lying on the ground, and a motoring diversion sign fixed securely to a pole.

Diversion sign for pedestrians and cyclists while Sighthill is being rebuilt. This sign is meant to last for 3 years, but it's only been a few months so far!

This sign reckons the narrow muddy path to Lambhill is wheelchair accessible, but see #86812.

NCN 7 & 75 turn right here, but the council banned the turn on the road, so it must be made via the footway and the 3-stage toucan crossing in #87102.

An important junction for active travel, but only signed in one direction for cycling due to the banned right turn onto Argyle St (see #87099).

No attempt either to ensure this tiny directions sign is visible to those on the carriageway, or that those on the shared-use footway can actually make the turn.

New cycle parking stands at shops in Maryhill Road, but new direction sign attempting to direct cyclists down a flight of steps!

Route sign hidden by tree branches until the last moment, on narrow shared-use footway.

Brand new direction sign with graffiti. It is easier to get to the hospital by bike via the path to the left which leads to Hardgate Road. The path to the right leads to the Shieldhall Road roundabout where it is difficult to cross the r ... [more]

NCN756 has now been signed via the south bank of the River Clyde, but the cycle route along this bank hasn't been built yet, and there are still some flights of steps such as at #71267! Of the destinations listed, only Richmond Park is o ... [more]

NCN756 has now been signed via the south bank of the River Clyde, but the cycle route along this bank hasn't been built yet, and there are still some flights of steps such as at #71267! The narrow riverside footway to Springfield Quay is ... [more]

Cycle directions in tiny writing on the right-hand side of Devon Street. The straight-ahead directions can't be read due to the left sign getting in the way, and strangely no directions for the right. Basically, this type of sign is of no u ... [more]

If you're wanting to follow NCN756, this is your turn off.

Cycling directions given via a flight of steps (see #71267).

A bogus sign for NCN75 (the connection on the right at the toucan crossing is a flight of steps, see #60171, the ramp is to the left), and a sign for the Polmadie Bridge diversion. I don't suppose they've considered cycling in this diversio ... [more]

The junction of NCN75 and NCN756 beneath the Kingston Bridge is still signed solely with stickers.

An attempt has been made to beautify the entrance to the Kelvin Walkway at Kelvindale Road, but this has been spoilt not just by the barriers, but by signs pointing to "National Cycle Network Route 7". It is NCN756 as can be see on the stic ... [more]

Not sure I 100% understand the principle behind @Sustrans national cycle network... @carsickglasgow http://t.co/NZw3T1Ek1w

The junction of NCN 756 and NCN 75, signed only with Sustrans stickers.

To get to the Clyde Gateway, there is a choice of steps on this side, or a steep cobbled ramp on the other side (seen in #31368). The sign gives directions via both in tiny writing.

A diversion sign for NCN75 directing cyclists the wrong way along a one-way street.

Route sign gives directions to the City Centre only for pedestrians, and cyclists are just meant to know that the segregated cycle route goes there by a more circuitous route. The segregated cycle route has been resurfaced, but the surfa ... [more]

A rare example of a double-post cycle route sign, but the posts are in the way on the narrow footway. The destinations refer to the ramp down to the canal path, before the billboard, and not the path after the billboard, which goes to Vaila ... [more]

A faded route sign pointing the way across split stage Toucan crossing across Dumbreck Road to Fleurs Avenue. No connection to the shared-use footway along Haggs Road to the right.

The Stobcross Bridge, across the Clydeside Expressway, but route signs don't include NCN route number, which is left to Sustrans stickers on an electrical cabinet.

Sign directing cyclists to the National Cycle Route and Milngavie

Route signs on round pole at Old Farm Road. The one for the canal is pointing the wrong way, but the bridge over the canal is clearly visible from here and a sign for this direction isn't really necessary.

Route sign directing cyclists and wheelchair users up a flight of steps, when there is a ramp up to the canal path on the opposite side of the road!

Signs on round pole pointing in the wrong directions on Park Road

Route sign directing cyclists to the "National Cycle Network". I didn't check if there was one at the other end of the path pointing to the National Road Network.

Junction of Kelvin Walkway/Cycleway at Dalsholm Bridge. There is only a sign for the route across the bridge facing the other direction.

Graffitied and faded sign at Victoria Park

End of Cycle Route sign on Kirkton Avenue, but we haven't reached Scotstoun Sports Centre yet (advertised at start of route #36032)

Faded out sign for Scotstoun Sports Centre on Kelso Street

Colleges Cycle Route direction sign approaching Broomhill Cross. Directions for cyclists turning left are given on the far side of the junction! Worn out cycle lane markings no longer visible.

Quality signage in Damshot Road.

The point where the Cumbernauld to Glasgow cycle route joins the redetermined footway (to the right only) of North Hanover Street. Not only do cyclists have to watch out for the step half way down the ramp, but the cycle route signs, on a s ... [more]

Official Route 7 signs leading into a dead end. The signs have been there since long before the BBC building, when the real route was slightly to the left of this picture. Now that has been barricaded off, with no signs to show that the n ... [more]

Dead end: signage on former route of NCN 7 & 75, not taken down when path re-routed due to new school being built in Rosshall Park
