Details of the steps down from the Stockingfield Bridge. There is a wheeling ramp (with the usual problems they entail), but once the bridge is properly open, using the main ramp will be far more attractive for those cycling. See also #1864 ... [more]

Some artwork can be found alongside the new Stockingfield Junction bridge.

View of the very busy Accademia footbridge, from the Peggy Guggenheim Collection museum, on the Grand Canal, Venice.

Traghetti are paddled across the Grand Canal in Venice, weaving in between the oncoming motorized Vaporetti - which act as the city's public system. A traghetto is a gondola used as a ferry to cross the canal for 2.5 Euros. Two oars peop ... [more]

@scottishcanals the approach to the canal at Stockingfield is blocked by a car https://t.co/YGzt9A4nhx

Why advertise that the access ramps are open onto towpath at Stockingfield then allow vans to park on them forcing people into deep mud?. And I walked round from the house the other evening with yard brush to clean glass off I mentioned pre ... [more]

Active travel routes into and around Sighthill still closed. This is at Port Dundas Basin.

The stepped footbridge over the Forth & Clyde Canal at Westerton has had wheeling ramps added at one side.

Construction work continues at Stockingfield Junction.

The path from the Forth & Clyde Canal footbridge at Old Farm Road over to Netherton Road is in a very poor condition (still). What doesn't show up in the photograph is the step between the asphalt surface and the washed-out unsealed path.

The new bridge at Stockingfield Junction is taking shape.

Amongst the shop units under the Bowline path are a café and a bike shop.

The refurbished former railway bridge over the Forth & Clyde Canal is now part of the Bowline path.

A ramp and steps connect the canal towpath to the Bowline path.

The route sign at the Bowline junction, east of Bowling. NCN7 is now signed via the new Bowline route, while NCN754 continues along the canal towpath. In the Clydebank direction, NCN7 is incorrectly shown in brackets.

A broken sign on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath at Dalmuir.

Simple access between the canal bank at Port Dundas Basin and Payne Street.

The area around the old boat has been tidied up and new paths laid.

Redeveloped canal bank at Port Dundas Basin.

A sign rendered unreadable by graffiti.

The area could do with tidying up, noting the routes people actually use, and to have some benches installed.

No change to the barrier at the Kelvindale access to the Forth & Clyde Canal.

Progress on the bridge under construction at Stockingfield Junction, looking through the worksite gate.

The sign on the gate says "No Parking" but there is no enforcement. The footway forms the link between the partly installed toucan crossing across Craighall Road and the canal path.

The canal path access next to the Centre81 community centre is now opened. There are steps and a hair-pin bend ramp. The community centre also has some cycle parking.

Surface dressing has been applied to the canal towpath between Yoker and Clydebank.

There is a lack of a dropped kerb to allow access to the canal towpath at the end of the car park at Firhill. A temporary ramp has been provided, but this is possibly related to the construction work on the bridge to the Claypits nature res ... [more]

The West Street access point to the Forth & Clyde Canal could use a dropped kerb.

A new canal towpath access point has been created at the Centre81 community centre in Whitecrook. UPDATE: Now open.

A new steps and ramp access to the canal towpath is being built at the Centre81 community centre in Whitecrook. The towpath here has been resurfaced over a short distance.

Paths on both sides of the canal at Linnvale have bumpy surfaces.

The path on the north side of the Forth & Clyde Canal at Linnvale has a loose gravel surface, while the direct route to Strauss Avenue is just a grass path.

Lack of verge trimming has lead to the LED catseyes being, in a number of cases like here on the left, completely covered over.

The little bridge across the Forth & Clyde Canal in Clydebank appears to have stuck. Access is still available across the main bridge at the shopping centre, but this is often busy with pedestrians, making this a preferred route for cycling ... [more]
