The Ferry Road dropped kerb (see #175002) did not stay clear for long. Again, materials dumped partly obstructing users of this dropped kerb.

The end of the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway in Ferry Road is now usable.

The Old Dumbarton Road cycleway has now been cleared of obstructions at the Ferry Road junction. The raised crossing has been installed and awaits lining. Some bollards might be in order too.

A council van has been parked on the footway at the entrance to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery car park, obstructing families trying to walk past. The footway also forms part of the West City Way cycleway, since the adjacent carriageway is one ... [more]

Several planters on Kelvin Way have been pushed aside, some of them are obstructing the cycleway. Fly parking is occurring without enforcement.

The incomplete Old Dumbarton Road cycleway is unusable for cycling, but is being used for parking vans.

The protracted roadworks to rebuild and extend the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway continue. The https://www.roadworksscotland.org/ website said the road closure to create the raised junction would have started by 7 October and Get Ready Glasgo ... [more]

The slab paving work at Ferry Road is now complete but the asphalt footway remains to be finished. Some graffiti has been painted over, but new graffiti has appeared. The obstruction seen in #173875 has been removed. The former cycle dir ... [more]

The dropped kerb at the end of Ferry Road is now clear from obstructions (see #173875), but the footway surface is still incomplete.

Roadworks continue on Ferry Road. The surface on the footway is still incomplete. Updated at #175001 and #175002.

The building of the Old Dumbarton Road cycle track continues at the Benalder Street/Ferry Road junction, and shows no sign of being complete in time for the COP26 diversion route coming this way. There is a high kerb at the end of the cycle ... [more]

The diagonal cycle crossing from Bunhouse Road to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery still awaits commissioning.

The shared footway in Bunhouse Road has been covered in beige surfacing, except for a gap just beyond the crossing. The main pedestrian egress from the car park comes up the ramp on the left.

Just a small partly hidden rectangular sign on the off-side to warn drivers of the cycle track crossing at the exit from the Bunhouse Road Car Park.

Still finishing work to be done on the rebuilt Bunhouse Road shared footway, and still no indication of priorities at the car park entrance.

Still finishing work to be done on the rebuilt Bunhouse Road shared foootway, and the cycle route sign is pointing the wrong way, and least for Loch Lomond.

Still finishing work to be done on Old Dumbarton Road, and not looking likely to be finished in time for the COP26 diversion route coming this way.

The diagonal crossing from Bunhouse Road awaiting commissioning. See also #172619.

The crossings at the Old Dumbarton Road/Benalder Street junction still await raised carriageways, so these two had to bump the kerb in order to join the cycleway. UPDATE: This issue has now been resolved, see #175144.

The crossings on Old Dumbarton Road still do not have raised carriageways, so continue to hinder cycling across. However, the cycleway is still blocked further along.

The shared footway on Bunhouse Road has been rebuilt, but has not had its dividing line reinstated. The zebra crossing has a random section of tactile paving nearby with no obvious purpose.

The toucan crossing across Argyle Street has been replaced by a pedestrian crossing and a separate cycle crossing. However, the approach is a bit cramped behind a bit of wall. See also #173170.

Roadworks closing the shared footway alongside Bunhouse Road. Pedestrians are diverted through the car park, no mention of cycling. I went onto the road, but this is not possible in the opposite direction since it is one-way.

A four-arm sign at a six-arm junction. Plenty of room for confusion, but most of the destinations on this side, where there is a choice of three routes, are already within sight. The Kelvin Hall has also been written as one word.

Some sort of pipe dangling from the road bridge over the River Kelvin and NCN7.

Diversion signage for the Stockingfield canal path closure. The signs have been fixed quite low down the pole.

Route signs and temporary diversion signs for the Stockingfield canal towpath closure. Lots of leaves are rotting away, awaiting being swept off the Kelvin Walkway.

No dropped kerb at the end of the Kelvin Walkway access path at Lochgilp Street, although there is one slightly further on at the steps.

A tree surrounded by a concrete plinth in Bantaskin Street. The path to the Kelvin Walkway now has a barrier saying 'No Entry' at its entrance.

With the housing development now happening off of Bantaskin Street, it might be time to remove at least one of these barriers.

It's March and last autumn's leaf mess is still plaguing the Kelvin Walkway. Overtrousers or a change of trousers required on wet days, even with full length mudguards.

The Kelvin Walkway diversion via Contin Place. Still no dropped kerb at the start of the path to Wyndford Drive.

Diversion signed with blue (permanent) rather than yellow NCN stickers. And still no dropped kerb at the start of the path to Contin Place.

Glasgow City Council is planning some work to fix this retaining wall on the Kelvin Walkway.

Excellent signage at the Scottish Water work on the Kelvin Walkway Garriochmill Road access, where a short path has been laid to divert around the worksite.

Excellent signage at the Scottish Water work on the Garriochmill Road access to the Kelvin Walkway. A short path has been laid around the back of the work compound to maintain pedestrian and cycle access.

Obstructive pavement parking on the shared-use footway on Dalsholm Road between the Garscube Estate path and the Kelvin Walkway, forcing riders onto the crumbling carriageway. There is a free car park at the top of the hill in the backgroun ... [more]

The nettles are starting to take over the path again.

Another professional dog walker using the shared-use footway for van parking.

Pigeon mess problem at the Cowal Road bridge.

Poor forward visibility on the bit of the Kelvin Walkway that dips down next to the river then climbs back up quite steeply (out of sight around the bend).

The cycle parking at the Kelvin Hall (see #95296) has been removed without replacement, meaning bikes are getting locked to railings here and around the corner.

The utilities work on Old Dumbarton Road fail to take any account of the cycle route which crosses from one footway to the other at this point.

Utilities work on the shared-use footway on Old Dumbarton Road (lasting several weeks) and no account taking of cycling.

The cycle parking stands outside the Kelvin Hall are hopeless and need replaced. Bolting stands onto block paving is not sufficiently secure in a street environment. See also #95251.

Just a small sign away from the main line of sight to warn of the cycle track crossing the access road to the Bunhouse Car Park, and no indication of priority.

Still no sign as to whether this widened footway is shared use or not, now that the one-way carriageway is unusable for cycling in the other direction. However, there is this parking sign where no parking is allowed.

Broken asphalt on the route the Kelvingrove Art Gallery boss preferred cyclists to take rather than the more obvious route through the car park.

It turns out bolting cycle parking stands to block paving isn't very secure. Who knew? See also #95296.

Literally nowhere else to park! (*not)

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?

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

Footway car parking outside new student accommodation, including reversing across the shared-use footway/cycleway. There is plenty available on-road car parking, and a cheap all-day car park next door (behind the trees).

The crossing of Bunhouse Road is a mess, and is currently partially blocked by hoarding. In the background a van driver has blocked the cycleway with his van, right next to some car parking spaces on the road, and near a large car park j ... [more]

The start of the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway in Ferry Road is completely anonymous.

Old Dumbarton Road with the cycleway on the far side, passing an old gate.

The point on Old Dumbarton Road where the cycleway crosses to the opposite footway.

The Bunhouse Road cycle track partially blocked due to it being used as a dumping ground for materials during roadworks on Argyle St/Dumbarton Road. The van parked on the footway beyond the cordoned off area was blocking the dropped kerb fo ... [more]

A sign for the West City Way at Kelvingrove Art Galleries, with no further explanation. In the background, someone unlocking a hire bike.

As welcome as the rebuilt paths connecting to the Kelvin Walkway are, some have brought thier own problems, including here mud washing down onto the main path. There were problems here before, but now worse than ever! The sign covered in ... [more]

The Kelvin Walkway at the Kelvin Aqueduct. A pity about the kink in the path still being present. Awkward and annoying when you're just picking up speed from the preceding narrow climb and blind corner.

It's hard to believe that this path is only a few weeks old. Unlike the other rebuilt paths linking to and from the Kelvin Walkway, this riverside path was not asphalted, but instead has been given a loose surface. Unsurprisingly, it is ... [more]

Unlike the other rebuilt paths linking to and from the Kelvin Walkway, this riverside path was not asphalted, but instead has been given a loose surface. Unsurprisingly, it is already wrecked after the first heavy rain since it was built. W ... [more]

Welcome as these improved paths are, they've caused problems on the main Kelvin Walkway, including mud washing down the hill.

An unnecessarily sharp turn at the junction of the Kelvin Walkway and the path to Southmuir Place. This could potentially be a main route into North Kelvinside and the West End from the Kelvin Walkway. No addition to the signpost to refl ... [more]

A welcome new path connecting the Kelvin Walkway to Southmuir Place, but it appears to have been built without any regrading of the gradients, so has a sudden steep climb.

A welcome new path to Southmuir Place, but needs protected from use by drivers.

A welcome new path from Southmuir Place towards the Kelvin Walkway, but why the adverse camber, and couldn't more of an effort be made to tidy up the start? With no bollards to protect the path, there are also motor vehicle tyre tracks.

Cars being parked on the Kelvin Walkway and West City Way, because someone has removed some of the bollards that mark the limit of the car park.

Cycle parking at the Kelvin Hall, replacing #31550 where a new extension has been built. But the stands are bolted onto block paving and have since shown the shortcomings of that method of fixing (see #95251 and #95296).

Path in Wyndford being widened, rerouted and resurfaced, providing more direct route between Kelvin Walkway and Southmuir Place.

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

A new set of signs has appeared, with tiny writing that cannot be read approaching the signs.

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

Useless barriers blocking path, but motor vehicles driven across grass, turning it into mud, plus uncollected rubbish next to bin, and path still covered in autumn's unswept leaf fall, causing clothing to get covered in muck for anyone cycl ... [more]

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]

While the barriers have replaced worse barriers, the problem of the unnecessarily steep ramp remains, and the people I saw before and after taking this photo both dismounted rather than attempt to ride up this ramp. Also the bollard sugg ... [more]

Old barriers at Kelvindale Road crossing on Kelvin Walkway replaced by new barriers, slightly further apart. The old barriers are shown at: #45335.

Lots of ice on the Kelvin Walkway, next to the canal aqueduct, at a point where there is water running down slope onto path.

Compacted snow turned to ice on Kelvin Walkway, and with no gritting, staying frozen in shadow of railway viaduct.

No gritting of active travel routes in Glasgow. This is Dalsholm Bridge over the River Kelvin after much of the ice elsewhere had melted in the sun.

A very poor section of track linking the closed section of Bantaskin Street with the Kelvin Walkway. The sign says "Kelvin Walkway - Authorised Vehicles Only - 4 m.p.h."

Triple barrier on path connecting closed section of Bantaskin Street at the Skaethorn Bridge to Kelvin Walkway. Why?

Fly-tipping on closed section of Bantaskin Street, which forms access to Kelvin Walkway.

On the left, offside access to the Forth & Clyde Canal at Kelvin Dock. (Access to the towpath can only be gained from here by crossing over one of the lock gates.) On the right, access to the Kelvin Walkway. Poor surface all round.

A car parked on shared-use footway, blocking access to cycle path. There's a free car park about 30 seconds' drive away to the right.

No dropped kerb at end of path, and this path is useful as a diversion while the Kelvin Walkway is shut. UPDATE: A dropped kerb has subsequently been installed.

Mucky surface on Kelvin Walkway, with still lots of unswept leaves in March! This muck gets on your trousers when cycling in the wet.

Car parking at point where shared-use footway cycleway crosses over Old Dumbarton Road. Google Streetview shows Double Yellow Lines on the roadway here before resurfacing.

Cycle lane painted on footway, with Give Way parkings at entrance gateway

Cycle lane painted onto footway on Old Dumbarton Road This facility has now been upgraded, see #175143.

Good directions along the canal, but the sign for the Kelvin Walkway is non-reflective and doesn't mention the NCN route number 756.

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

Diversion route while Kelvin Walkway shut at Maryhill

Route sign with small writing, and not reflective. Since this route is not lit, reflective signs would help guide users, and they did until they were taken down to be replaced with these signs.

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

Sign directing cyclists to the National Cycle Route and Milngavie

Large-slotted gully 2/3 across width of widened cycle path at bottom of slope. This could easily catch the wheel of a cyclist not paying attention, and should be moved to the edge of the path.

Route sign and removed kissing gate seen in #22104. The sign for Acre Road directs cyclists through a kissing gate seen in #50219, and thus an extra minute needs added to the journey duration time shown on the sign.
