The badly placed lamppost referred to in #176480 causes users to end up crossing the tactile paving on a diagonal course, due to the poor planning of the cycleway alignment.

Having started with a clean slate, it is disappointing to see such a misalignment at the end of the West Street cycleway. The badly placed lamppost forces users to choose between going one side or the other, one of which means that they wil ... [more]

The replacement Clyde Place cycleway is finally open. Here it meets the South West City Way.

A sign advising of the diversions for NCN routes 7, 75 and 756, facing people heading away from the diversions.

So is the diversion for NCN7 straight ahead, or left?

Fallen signs on the path, and temporary signs that aren't too helpful (see #175562).

Anybody spot the issue here? 👀 The diversion for cycling during #COP26 is a mess. It’s inaccessible. It’s not signed correctly. It’s not a route that people want that makes them feel safe. https://t.co/6bNuDzihB0

Preparing to shut the Stobcross Bridge for COP26.

Preparing to shut the Stobcross Bridge for COP26.

The Stobcross Bridge is to be shut during the COP26 conference for some sort of security reason.

A new section of cycle track at West Street, showing junction with Clyde Place cycle track. See #169987 for view in opposite direction.

A triangle of new paving has been placed to the side of the large barrier at Buchanan Wharf, because people were walking across the flower bed to get past the barrier. This is also the cycle diversion for NCN756 until the cycle track at #16 ... [more]

This part of the Clydeside path at Shawfield has been closed for so long without be any repairs being attempted that the sign is now faded and falling to bits. Whether it's @GlasgowCC, @SouthLanCouncil or @clydegateway that's responsible ... [more]

Construction work at Clyde Place, including a replacement cycle path and cycle parking. The riverside path is open (to the right).

If you haven't found the diversion by now, you won't see this sign.

The Tradeston Bridge is presently shut for work to be done.

Building work continues at Clyde Place. The cycle track approaching the Tradeston Bridge has been rebuilt. However, the position of the temporary railing directed me onto the new kerb which I wasn't expecting.

An asphalt ramp in place of a dropped kerb at the end of the Stobcross Street service road, probably as good as the location can hope for. The path leads to the Stobcross Bridge and NCN756.

The counter at the Anderston Bridge has now been removed.

No progress on rebuilding the south bank path (damaged by subsidence).

The person seen in #168687 gets frustrated at the lack of green signal on the cycle track and moves into the main carriageway to cross St Vincent Street legally on the Elderslie Street green.

Lack of cycle priority at cycle traffic signals on Elderslie Street. This person was already waiting as I arrived, when traffic on St Vincent Street had the green. See also #168688.

Nonsense bollards.

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.

Nothing to warn NCN756 and West City Way users that there is a locked gate preventing egress from Kelvingrove Park ahead, and that the nearest way out is onto Kelvingrove Street to the right.

Due to problems with public disorder on hot sunny days, various gates to Kelvingrove Park have been locked shut. This is one of the gates that was supposed to be left open, yet it is chained and locked shut. Simple for me to divert aroun ... [more]

The Clyde Place cycleway has been shut for building works, but a diversion has been established via the riverside walkway.

The footway and cycleway remain open during Network Rail bridge works above Clyde Place.

Cycle parking on Gorbals Street near the Sheriff Court.

The residents have decided to park all over the cycleway.

Still no progress on fixing the riverside path.

A person on a bike leaves NCN756 on the Mavor Avenue shared footway to cross to the new retail park.

A new roundabout at Mavor Avenue/Avon Drive. It wasn't clear where the cycle route went.

The dropped kerb associated with the crossing from the NCN756 Mavor Avenue shared footway, necessary for southbound cyclists due to the blind bend at the Gateway junction, has been removed and replaced with a regular kerb.

Steps linking from Dunblane Drive onto the East Kilbride railway path. If there was the political will, there would be a ramp here.

The East Kilbride railway path near Dunblane Drive (to the left) and Halfmerke Primary School (to the right).

The start of the railway path section of NCN756, leaving East Kilbride, at St Bryde Lane. The traffic calming strips present a hazard to turning cyclists and could easily be bypassed with a more convenient access onto the path to the left. ... [more]

A route sign for NCN756 in Old Mill Road, although I don't think Glasgow is just one mile further along the route than Rutherglen.

Cycle parking at East Kilbride station, one of two shelters, and a shared footway on Torrance Road.

A busy junction between Kittoch Street and West Mains Road.

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.

NCN756 road crossing at the north end of Piccadilly Street.

Raised crossing where NCN756 and Piccadilly Street meet.

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

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.

A vandalised sign for NCN756 in a non-standard format, and no dropped kerb to allow cyclists to leave the carriageway and join the path.

A path signed as a cycle access to NCN756, but could do with being a little bit wider. The road at the top, Logie Park, is one way, but there is no sign to tell cyclists this.

The access to NCN756 is vulnerable to blockage by van parking at Glamis Drive.

The railway path into East Kilbride, NCN756, with a sign for "Primary Schools" off to the left.

The older path connects Highfield Place and The Gateway, while the newer path connects across to NCN756 on the railway path. No signage, but as NCN756 also joins The Gateway, it can be reached by either route for those heading north.

Clear signage for destinations along NCN756, but none for some of the paths off to the side. Highfield Place's turn-off.

The railway path into East Kilbride, part of NCN756.

NCN756 turns left to leave the railway path alignment, while the cycle route to Blantyre and Hamilton starts, but is only signed as going to East Mains. There's a sign for Hamilton up on Wilson Place.

The cycle route from Blantyre joins NCN756. The railway path has now been properly surfaced.

The cycle route from Blantyre leaves Wilson Place to join NCN756, but no mention of NCN756 on the sign. A dropped kerb at the end of the path would be of assistance to anyone cycling to or from Wilson Place itself.

The cycle route from Blantyre crosses Wilson Place to join NCN756, but no mention of NCN756 on the signs. Also, if the markings barely fit on the pavement, the shared footway is probably too narrow.

Chapelside Road signed as a 'No Through Road' but is a through road for walking and cycling, and can be used to bypass the poor crossing facilities around the A749 to get to Nerston East or for heading east.

I'm not too sure what's going on here.

A split toucan crossing across A749 dual carriageway for NCN756 to get to Nerston village en route to Rutherglen and Glasgow.

An update on #28413, taken from the opposite direction.

Motorists: Don't U-turn Cyclists: U-turn The A749 crossing on NCN756 outside the Kingsgate Retail Park, before the cycle route makes its way through Nerston village.

No attempt to resolve conflict at the Kingsgate Retail Park bus stop on NCN756. No option to go around the back of the shelter as in #107619.

No improvement at the Kingsgate Retail Park entrance crossing on NCN756.

Waiting to cross. The bush seems to be taking over the NCN756 shared footway.

To get onto the cycle route to Stewartfield from NCN756 on West Mains Road, the simplest way appears to be to use the slip onto Torrance Road and then the dropped kerb inside the junction.

The connection from Barr Terrace to NCN756 on West Mains Road is pedestrian only.

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

Something has happened that has caused the still fairly new main riverside path to be closed. Diversion via the secondary path.

The entrance to Richmond Park now doubles as the construction site entrance. NCN756 is unuseable since there is no way through to the riverside other than the steps next to Rutherglen Bridge (see #95375).

I don't know which closure this sign relates to. The next closure in this direction appears to be at Richmond Park.

The path to Ballater Street closed due to the damage seen in #95387.

The path to Riverside Street collapsed when the river level changed. It wasn't looking too good before that either. If I owned one of those flats, I'd be asking my councillor what was going to be done about this.

The path between Ballater Street and Waterside Street has been closed off due to its collapse. Divert to Waterside Street via McNeil Street, or to Rutherglen via NCN75 on the other side of the river (NCN756 through Richmond Park is also ... [more]

The end of the diversion due to the collapse of the South Bank cycle path, and reversion to the path.

Some subsidence on the cycle path at Adelphi Street, not as bad as at #95383.

The South Bank cycle path, which only opened a few months previously, collapsed when the river level changed. A diversion has been arranged through the adjacent car park (see #95382).

Due to the cycle path collapse at Adelphi Street, the cycle route is diverted through the car park.

Plenty of tyre tracks in the frost, and the lamppost (previously in the middle of the path as seen in #86772) has been relocated to the edge.

Advance warning of the closure of NCN756 ahead.

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

Part of Richmond Park has been sold for housing, and thus NCN756's route is presently severed.

NCN756 blocked off at Richmond Park, part of which has been sold off for a housing development. The path to the left leads to a flight of steps.

Waiting for the lights in Elderslie Street.
