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.

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.

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.

NCN756 leaves the railway path and joins The Gateway and Mavor Avenue.

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.

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

The path linking the South Bank path and Oatlands is presently shut while work is underway on rebuilding the Polmadie Bridge.

Richmond Park closed, why not visit Glasgow Green? Well, the Polmadie Bridge is down for starters.

A pothole has appeared in the South Bank path.

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

The path at Shawfield heading away from the Smartbridge.

Art?

The Smartbridge at Shawfield.

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.

#NCN756 shut all week due to...dinosaurs #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/It2CTo7obq

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

Damage the water drop from the broken Clyde Weir has been serious. Major subsidence just east of the Strathclyde distillery seems active https://t.co/FyyVRaTibV

NCN756 continues along Larchfield Drive, but the path to the left is also a cycle path and goes up to run alongside the Cathkin Relief Road.

A path up to the Cathkin Relief Road from Larchfield Drive.

The narrow path is covered in mud washed down from the Cathkin Relief Road embankment.

The new route of NCN756 is over the right fork to the toucan crossing. The path ahead leads to a high kerb. I took a group ride over this and half of them went straight on, and it's not difficult to see why, especially with the old Give Way ... [more]

Quite an awkward approach to the new toucan crossing alongside the Cathkin Relief Road.

Simple route to crossing on this side, but a mess on the other side (see #90314).

Painted markings direct cyclists from Rutherglen onto the road to the right, but NCN756 actually goes left towards the Smart Bridge. Some dropped kerbs nearer or behind the camera would be useful here.

Typical nonsense markings in South Lanarkshire, where it appears cyclists are meant to cross from the footway of Glasgow Road (off to the right) onto the footway in the foreground, then immediately leave it for the on-road cycle lane. No he ... [more]

Glasgow really pushing the boat out on cycling infrastructure I see... https://t.co/xEq1oobYaI

Glasgow's first Advance Green cycle light, allowing right turns into Bridge Street for a few seconds before motor traffic gets the green light to do likewise.

A nice wide toucan crossing across Ballater Street.

There's clearly something wrong with the foundation of this path for the blocks to be like this. UPDATE MAY 2017: The path has been shut for this to be dealt with. http://www.gobike.org/closure-to-cycle-route-south-side-of-clyde-ncn756-f ... [more]

I don't know what the purpose of this barrier is, but it isn't to direct cyclists onto the road, because as we saw at #88345 they need to be on the footway to get around the barrier there.

It appears that the cycle route goes along the footway (which isn't signed as shared use) because no dropped kerbs or other arrangements have been made to get past the road closure in Waterside Street. The bollard has received stripy tape.

Not the best surface for a cycle path. A dropped kerb for joining from the carriageway would also be advantageous.

It seems the designer expects cyclists to cross to the park using the toucan crossing away to the right, rather than crossing the centre of the junction. Coming from the park there are no push-buttons for the crossing at the park gate.

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 Smart Bridge between Shawfield and Dalmarnock.

The South Bank cycle route alongside the River Clyde.

The path past the Rowing Club is now surfaced, with LED catseye lights.

More leaf mess on the South Bank cycle path.

The River Clyde South Bank Commuter Route has its own sign.

The South Bank cycle route and the dismantled Polmadie Bridge, with diversion signs.

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

Right turn in two stages. Or play chicken with four lanes of traffic. #glasgowcycling https://t.co/HjgOdnKF7P [Ahead Only signs mean that right turn can only be made by the two-stage route.]

The cycle track crosses to the opposite side of Elderslie St at the toucan crossing.

No crossing to get to the riverside or NCN75 from James Watt St, and way blocked by a continuous railing. At the same time, Glasgow City Council is progressing with plans to implement a contraflow cycle facility in Blythswood St that wou ... [more]

The sign gives directions for left and right, but some people may actually want to go straight on, but the way is blocked by a planted area and the Fastlink busway. Behind the planted area is a 3-stage toucan crossing across Broomielaw (see ... [more]

Access to the path in front of the Sheriff Court is via a dropped kerb protected by double yellow lines.

It would have been nice if this ramp had been widened a bit.

New straight and lit cyclepath replacing steps outside the Sheriff Court. The old path next to the river has been retained for pedestrians.

The cyclepath merges with the footpath, but someone has decided a full Give Way marking is required.

It's cold, so jeans and hoodie for cycling journey. The fixings for the bollard nearest the camera appear to be loose.

Apart from the pointless wiggle, quite good.

A slightly better approach to the monument than in #86781, but that kerb line sticks out into the cyclepath and might catch someone out.

Left or right at the monument? Seems it is right, but could have been made more obvious and smooth.

After what has come before, this section is comparatively good.

I can't help thinking that this sharp corner could somehow have been avoided.

Potential for an impasse

Another tape-covered lamppost that has priority over cyclists.

Slow down and Give Way to a lamppost.

Lamppost in middle of path and flight of steps protected by hatching.

Paint and stripy tape will make it better!
