The bus stop on Lancefield Quay, at the popup cycle lane, is still in use so there is a gap in the cones, and as soon as I turned around to take a picture of the end of the popup cycle lane, someone was trying to park a car there, in the wa ... [more]

Although the popup cycle lane has been marked for westbound use only, there is quite a bit of use eastbound, particularly here where the parallel NCN75 Clyde Walkway has been shut due to a building fire.

The popup cycle lane at Lancefield Quay has "No Entry" markings on it, but the parallel NCN75 Clyde Walkway (visible to the right) is closed due to a building fire.

The council has stated that the popup cycle lane is for westbound use only, but this section in particular at Lancefield Quay is seeing significant wrong direction use, since the only other alternative to the closed Clyde Walkway is to cycl ... [more]

The recommencement of the popup cycle lane at Lancefield Quay, where the parallel NCN75 riverside cycle path is shut due to a building fire.

The popup cycle lane recommences in Broomielaw, after George V Bridge, while NCN75 U-turns down a ramp onto the riverside path. The footway along this section ahead is no longer shared-use, but still sees people cycling along it, even with ... [more]

The Clyde Street popup cycle lane, and a closed layby.

The recommencement of the popup cycle lane in Clyde Street, after Victoria Bridge.

A traffic lane removed on Clyde Street and turned into a popup cycle lane.

The popup cycle lane in Clyde Street, to provide extra capacity for NCN75 on the shared footway.

The plastic ramp hasn't stayed in place, but the sandbags are better than nothing for bumping down the kerb. An asphalt ramp added on top of the road surface would be better.

Start of temporary cycle lane on Clyde Street. People joining from either the carriageway through the cones, or from the ramp from the shared footway.

NCN75 busy at Glasgow Green.

Unfortunate that part of the Clyde Walkway is still closed after fire last year. Mind you, it was narrowest bit (between Kingston bridge and Squinty bridge). At least the road is quieter now and easier for distancing. Still not sure what wi ... [more]

A route sign for NCN7/NCN75, and council signs for the local path network.

A minimalist crossing put in for the Cardonald Quietway. Basically a patch of asphalt on the central reservation. Slightly diagonal too.

Signage for the Cardonald Quietway on the right-hand side of Linthaugh Road, but not very easy to read from the left-hand carriageway (which, since the footway is not shared-use, is where approaching cyclists should be). Quite frankly, t ... [more]

A simple and unobstructed crossing at Morton Avenue.

Routes NCN7 and NCN75 have been restored to the direct route at Hawkhead Hospital after a diversion lasting several years.

Route signage on route NCN7 and NCN75 together should not have brackets around the '75'.

The previous barriers have been removed from end of the path to Ben Nevis Road (see #90312).

The previous barriers have been removed from the path alongside Ben Nevis Road.

Tree root damage on the path alongside Ben Nevis Road.

Tree root damage on the path alongside Ben Nevis Road.

An awkward piece of path at the entrance to the park at the end of Ben Nevis Road. The combination of vertical and horizontal alignment, and the normally closed gate, make this tricky to cycle. It also doesn't seem to be easy for van driver ... [more]

A gate on NCN7 near the park at the end of Ben Nevis Road. Sometimes it is open, sometimes it is shut.

Surface repairs to NCN7 alongside the White Cart Water.

The boundary sign for Renfrewshire on NCN7 alongside the White Cart Water.

A route sign for NCN7/75 on Linthaugh Road, and cycle only access on Dormanside Road.

A poor transition between one section of riverside path and another, which could be made much smoother to allow users to concentrate on not hitting the posts instead.

Signs at the point where the main path goes beneath the Crookston Road bridge, including a sign for the alternative route in case of flooding on the main path.

The cycle route towards Paisley passing under Crookston Road, and following the White Cart. The ramp up to Crookston Road (at #112178) can be seen to the left.

A hair-pin bend in the ramp up from the White Cart path to Crookston Road.

The White Cart path meets Crookston Road. The signs have vanished from the signpost.

Pavement parking just after NCN7 and NCN75 turn into Rosshall Park. This is right next to a car park!

A poor change of surface on the path from Crookston Road into Rosshall Park.

A terrible change of surface on the path from Rosshall Park to Crookston Road. Mind how you go!

Signs at the junction of NCN7/75 and the riverside path in Rosshall Park.

A complete lack of signage, save for some dilapidated Sustrans stickers, at the left turn into Rosshall Park.

They've finally removed one of the worst barriers on the NCN into Ross Hall Park. Could barely get a regular bike through it let alone in anything slightly bigger before. #spaceforcycling #accessibility https://t.co/4RsK7C80uN [See #9381 ... [more]

NCN75 goes right through Gourock station, but it doesn't look like anyone is getting in this gate today. A path to the left is really what is needed, allowing access past the station to reach #91054 without dismounting.

NCN75 runs along the footway of Lower Kempock Street, passing a car park exit and a bus stop layby along the way.

A choice of shared-use steps or shared-use pathway on the seafront at Gourock, plus some cycle parking.

Signs for the Clyde Coastal Path, but not NCN75, outside the entrance to Gourock station. Only some of the poles have a blue stripe on them.

It is days like today that highlight how car centric Glasgow is. Almost 50% of Glaswegians don't have access to a private car. While the roads were ice free, the paths were like ice rinks. #activetravel #travelpoverty https://t.co/vhkNFMcgc ... [more]

The rebuilt Polmadie Bridge is now open. See also #102058.

The rebuilt Polmadie Bridge is now open. See also #102059.

The M8 cyclepath crossing NCN75 and the A752 at grade. Signage this way for NCN75 but not straight ahead to Glasgow.

The M8 cyclepath crosses the busy A752 road and A8 sliproad at grade. Why only a flyover for motorists? And no directions facing this way for NCN75 other than a Sustrans sticker.

Brand Street approaching the turn into Harvie Street. But how is anyone meant to know to turn onto the shared footway rather than the carriageway at the junction?

Now that NCN7 has been moved onto the footway at Harvie Street there is a new blind corner problem. Also, why is there a priority crossing at Govan Road and no priority for crossing Brand Street?

The parallel cycle and zebra crossing has now been finished. Go left to turn right. It's also not clear what is and what is not shared use footway.

What's that rule about not parking within so many metres of a junction? A car parked blocking entrance to the cycle track, so that it becomes easier to go around the other side of the traffic island to get to Lorne Street.

No access to the cycle track from the side road. Not unique.

This traffic island needs a gap to allow signalled cycle access between the Tradeston Bridge and York Street. It could also be used for right turns from Broomielaw (for those coming from Blythswood St and James Watt St) towards the Tradesto ... [more]

The shared use sign (see #65297) for the Broomielaw footway has been removed and signs now direct cyclists to the Clyde Walkway. But old habits die hard.

Could the route alignment be any worse? How about a cycle crossing straight across to the new path (see #93791) at the Village development rather than the split toucan?

If you're expecting signs for NCN 7 or 75, they are visible on the right.

I guess the best way onto the Pacific Drive shared use footway is via the toucan crossing on the left. They don't appear to think anyone would approach from this direction.

A diversion sign for NCN756 (due to severance at Richmond Park) at the Smartbridge, and NCN75 Clyde Walkway on the far bank.

A variable width newly nominated shared-use footway alongside the Fastlink busway. Also in the picture, cycle parking for the Village development.

A 2018 Glasgow cycle infrastructure.

The surface on the ramp between Broomielaw and the Clyde Walkway has been reinstated. A sign proclaims "access improvements". Ah, it's slightly wider (see #88473).

Access to NCN75 Clyde Walkway is possible from Dunlop Street (and from the cycle track at Stockwell Place #30509), but not vice versa since Dunlop Street is one-way.

Now that the excellent new ramp next to Victoria Bridge has been built, the gates that so often blocked the former route of NCN75 (see #31366) seem to be left open much of the time.

Work of some sort happening on the piers of the former Polmadie Bridge, with the Clyde Walkway remaining open.

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.

Despite the Clyde Gateway road and new police headquarters being built alongside, the cobbled ramp still remains unaltered. A flight of concrete steps has been provided for access to the police headquarters.

An interesting bollard, but access to the cycle path from the carriageway of Cotton Street involves either cycling along the footway or bumping the low kerb and going through the dirt.

The new zebra and cycle parallel crossing on Govan Road has still not been completed! Note the parking layby is narrower than the vehicle parked in it.

The new zebra and cycle parallel crossing on Govan Road still hasn't been completed. Not even the shared footway surface has been finished!

Quite why this hole has been left in the road I don't know. The cycle lane has been replaced by the cycle track on the right.

The new road layout at the junction of Govan Road and Lorne Street.

Just be grateful junctions of the M25 aren't signed like this. https://t.co/UrIcAmAHap

Take care if you're riding south on Govan Rd - a big chunk of road surface has not been reinstated after recent resurfacing. Reported to @GlasgowCC via #FillThatHole https://t.co/LIqNPAI57X https://t.co/sM2wzw6rme

Slow progress on the parallel cycle/zebra crossing on Govan Road.

In response to a request for suggestions for minor improvement works, I contacted the council suggesting a dropped kerb at this location and received the following response: "Following an inspection of the cycle path access at Dalmarnock ... [more]

There appears to be some demand for a ramp to bypass the steps up to Dalmarnock Road.

A diversion sign for NCN756 at the Smartbridge since its route through Richmond Park is currently blocked.

The plans show a parallel cycle/zebra crossing to go in here.

A slight adverse camber on the shiny smooth asphalt cycle track.

Corduroy tactiles were specified in the drawings and corduroy tactiles were duly installed, rather than cycleway tactiles.

The surface on the cycleway is the same shiny smooth asphalt used on the footway. Not good for grip.

Dropped kerbs have been installed at the access to the Village development (rectifying #71113), but that footway next to the stepped cycleway is so narrow!

Bus lane cameras. Will there be cycle lane cameras? A stepped two-way cycle track is being built along part of Govan Road, but the footway has been reduced to a minimal width, resulting in people walking on the cycle track. An extra metr ... [more]
