Still no replacement bollards at the western end of the Kelvingrove Art Gallery grounds.

New planters, and the toucan crossing is now free from obstruction. However, the tiny 'No Entry' on the bollard on the right is incorrect because this is just the way you would pass to turn right into the Kelvingrove Art Gallery grounds.

The gully in #51324 is now blocked with mud.

Missing bollards where Garriochmill Road becomes the Kelvin Walkway, with graffiti obscuring the sign. Yet other sections of the Kelvin Walkway have multiple barriers in the name of attempting to prevent access for motorbikes.

A car-sized gap between the water-filled barriers and the sign-post. The barriers are no replacement for the four bollards that used to be here before COP26.

A route sign (if you can read the small writing) pointing cyclists the wrong way along a one-way road, marked as 'No Entry'. The 'West City Way' emblem has its own separate post.

Milngavie left, City Centre right. Good luck spotting this route sign!

The Bunhouse Road cycle traffic signals are finally operational, about a year after installation. On this occasion the signal was triggered by someone cycling on the footway opposite. See also #183675.

The Bunhouse Road cycle traffic signals are finally operational, about a year after installation. However, some cyclists are continuing to use the pedestrian crossings, including this one who never pressed the button and had to wait a coupl ... [more]

The double yellow lines continue across the advisory pedestrian crossings and into the Restricted Parking Zone where double yellow lines are not meant to go. There are no markings or signs to say that the parking extending into the distance ... [more]

Temporary barriers have returned to close off the Kelvingrove Art Gallery pedestrian and cycle access from use by drivers.

A driver reversing and turning, having seen the previous driver head down towards Argyle Street to find the way now blocked. See also #183413.

Detectors have been installed in the Argyle Street footway at the crossing to Bunhouse Road, not just on the side that cyclists will be approaching from, but also on this side which is not part of any cycleway. The signals remain bagged, ha ... [more]

A detector has been installed in the Bunhouse Road cycleway, but is so close to the traffic signal users will have almost stopped before being detected.

Benches and an overflowing bin, but no cycle route signage at the junction of Ferry Road and the cycle path to Kelvinhaugh Road.

Placemaking (I think) at Ferry Road. Benches have been installed next to the bin, but still no restoration of direction signage (such as in #37216) for the cycle routes.

With only one original cycle hire parking stand remaining, the hire bikes are taking over the visitor cycle parking at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. See update at #185039.

The Bunhouse Road cycleway signals at Argyle Street remain under wraps.

A zebra crossing on the Bunhouse Road cycleway. This one has tactile paving for pedestrians on one side only.

Ponding on the Bunhouse Road cycleway.

The bollards (see #172619) that were removed for the COP26 conference dinner at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery still have not been replaced, and taxi drivers are using the pedestrian crossing as a shortcut to exit the car park.

With the local elections approaching, I'd have thought that there would be a little more urgency to get the cycle routes that have been built already properly up and running, but no, the Argyle Street crossing has been rebagged. (See also # ... [more]

The sharrows encourage cycling in the door-zone, adjacent to the parked cars.

The start of the Ferry Road cycleway, leading to the Old Dumbarton Road and Benalder Street cycleways. The sharrows point cyclists along the main carriageway and not onto the cycleway.

The end of the Ferry Road cycleway, with a Give Way back onto the carriageway. This road is a dead end for motorists, but leads to the National Cycle Network.

Erased markings at the junction of the Old Dumbarton Road, Benalder Street and Ferry Road cycleways. The plans used in the consultation period showed a mini-roundabout!

Unlike the approach taking at the previous junction, the crossings of the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway at the Ferry Road junction do not involve tactile paving on the cycleway and instead only have crossing tactiles at the pedestrian sides. ... [more]

The Old Dumbarton Road cycleway still has incorrect corduroy (Hazard) tactile paving, and for some manoeuvers from Bunhouse Road, it is so close to the junction that cyclists will still be turning when crossing it. Leaf and other autumn ... [more]

The Bunhouse Road cycleway crosses Old Dumbarton Road without priority, and illegal parking restricts visibility.

The Bunhouse Road cycleway priority crossing as seen from the car park. Restricted visibility, tiny Give Way markings and an offside information sign.

Priority has returned to the Bunhouse Road cycleway at the car park entrance, but has been indicated by a random use of miniature Give Way markings as the only indication of this.

Zebra crossings across both the carriageway and cycleway on Bunhouse Road. It is unclear whether pedestrians are allowed or barred from the former shared use footway.

Zebra crossings across both the carriageway and cycleway in Bunhouse Road.

Although now completely unbagged, the cycle traffic signal at Bunhouse Road doesn't seem to ever change to green.

Although now completely unbagged, the cycle traffic signals at the end of Argyle Street don't seem to ever change to green. The approach is still a mess.

Dalsholm Bridge has had its deck surface replaced by slippery, lumpy cobble stones, and if you fall off spiky railings have been fitted to the bridge's parapets.

The route sign at Kelvingrove Art Gallery has been reinstated after COP26. Interestingly, the walking and cycling directions to some destinations are different. The Kelvin Hall is referred to as Kelvinhall. The shortest route to the univers ... [more]

The Benalder Street/Argyle Street crossing still awaits commissioning, and signage for former car parking spaces awaits removal. New works have started on the Snow Bridge across the junction, making access trickier.

The cycle traffic signals for the Bunhouse Road/Argyle Street crossing still await commissioning.

The sign seen in #95295 to warn (or inform since it wasn't a warning sign) of the cycle track crossing has gone missing. Also, the tactile paving for the pedestrian crossing has several tyre tracks across it.

The temporary segregation at the south end of Kelvin Way has temporarily been removed for COP26, and although the fences have now been removed from around the Kelvingrove Art Gallery, the segregation has not yet been replaced. The 'Road Clo ... [more]

Slippery cobbles being installed on Dalsholm Bridge.

The cycle signals at the Argyle Street crossing have been partly uncovered. The tactile paving on this side of the pedestrian crossing has been removed, as have the bollards.

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,

The brand new cycleway on Old Dumbarton Road covered in leaves.

A COP26 security gate has been installed beneath the railway bridge at Ferry Road. A similar installation has also been provided at the bottom of Kelvinhaugh Street. I met an annoyed pedestrian who had been turned back to find another route ... [more]

The crossing at the junction of Bunhouse Road and Argyle Street is still not in use.

The raised crossing at the junction of Old Dumbarton Road and Bunhouse Road is now in place. The tyre-grabbing incorrect tactile paving is still in place on the cycleway.

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. UPDATE: The raised crossing has now been installed. See #175266.

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?
