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]

Not sure what this is, but wasn't designed with bikes in mind & cars regularly demolish it. National cycle route 7. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/fLJMPbMu79

NCN75 closed at the SECC due to the Festival of Motoring of all things.

Like #91605, a diversion sign that says "see map" without saying where the map is. And it's at a flight of steps (the turning for the ramp is behind the camera).

@sturmeyarcher3 @GoBikeGlasgow Apparently there is a diversion on a map... somewhere... https://t.co/XxexndT9Zu

Cycle parking inside Gourock railway station.

NCN75 goes right through Gourock Station, hence the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign.

Nice job! Makes cycling along the Clyde so much nicer @GlasgowCC @SustransScot #NCN75 https://t.co/pSQNMVmIkn

Still a kerb to bump for anyone trying to get onto the carriageway next to Bells Bridge, in this case due to the closure of the cycleway by a running event. One chap decided to go over the double kerb nearer the bridge ramp! See also #90342 ... [more]

NCN7 ahead and possibly NCN75 across Bells Bridge shut for a running event. The sign refers to a diversion but it is not clear where the diversion signs are. See also #90343.

These barriers on the NCN7/75 look brand new and contravene @sustrans guidance on access controls: https://t.co/fR4xOMAmRt https://t.co/fNQV15dMJi

Since my last visit here (see #88189) a route confirmation sign for NCN75 has appeared, but no directional signage.

Clyde Walkway Location: Glasgow Central, Glasgow (Scotland, United Kingdom)

The NCN75 crosses the Showcase Cinema access road on this zebra crossing without the usual Belisha Beacons or zig-zags.

Uncontrolled crossing of A8 sliproad at the Showcase Cinema roundabout.

The cycleway crosses the A8 sliproad on an uncontrolled crossing to the right of the mini-roundabout. When I crossed, a driver stopped to wave me across when I suddenly appeared from behind a van. I get that there are roadworks going on, ... [more]

A narrow "converted" footway alongside the A752, where I had to go onto the rough strip next to the carriageway to pass someone coming the other way.

I guess combined with the cycle route sign the "Rejoin Carriageway" sign could be interpreted as the more usual "Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway".

"Use Footway Opposite" - not directed at anyone in particular.

Route NCN75 turns left onto the road here, but the nearest dropped kerb is behind the bush on the left.

NCN75 continuity hopelessly mismanaged at new housing development where footway car parking is endemic.

A steep ramp out of underpass at Old Glasgow Road.

This ramp forms part of NCN75 and has been closed for a few weeks. See #88472.

This has apparently been left like this for several weeks! No warning signs for anyone approaching from the riverside.

The route sign directs cyclists to the flight of steps under the bridge, when they need to use the ramp up to street level. However, the ramp to street level has been partially dismantled, and has been left like this for a few weeks (see al ... [more]

A terrible layout for the Broomielaw shared-use footway at the Fastlink busway. See also #88469.

A narrow blind corner on the Broomielaw shared-use footway, with some upstand for anyone approaching from a position where they can see at least some way around the corner.

As if the Broomielaw shared-use footway wasn't bad enough in its own right, there is vertical upstand on the kerb at this private car park entrance.

SUSTRANS milepost installed on 31st March 2017

Another scheme where the designer has failed to take account of how vehicles will be parked, given that there is unlikely to ever be any parking enforcement around here. Putting in wide footways with big stone kerbs is a waste of money in t ... [more]

The Smart Bridge connects NCN75 with NCN756 on the opposite bank of the River Clyde. But the only signage is by means of Sustrans stickers.

The Cotton Street access to the Clyde Walkway. A choice of going onto the footway on the approach, or bumping the kerb next to the gate.

The Shore Street access to the Clyde Walkway.

A dropped kerb to access the St Andrew's Suspension Bridge from McNeil Street has now been installed.

The Clyde Walkway needs swept, like many off-road cyclepaths in Glasgow.

The new bridge connecting the Cuningar Loop park to the former athletes' village in Dalmarnock. But no connection to the Clyde Walkway below the bridge.

New bridge connecting the Cuningar Loop park to the former athletes' village, but no connection to the Clyde Walkway.

Still no dropped kerb at cycle path access point next to Dalmarnock Bridge.
