The COP26 fence completely obstructs the riverside path that forms part of the Kelvin Walkway, and although there is a gate and it is open, it opens onto the remaining width of the path blocking it.

A fence has been built all around the Kelvingrove Art Gallery for the COP26 event. It blocks the footway (the one that might be shared-use due to the one-way carriageway) and the gate only opens across the carriageway,

Narrow barriers to negotiate at the end of the riverside path in Renfrew.

Barriers and signs at the start of the riverside path in Renfrew. It only reaches the riverside after the scrap yard.
