The COP26 diversion route goes from Castlebank Street to Beith Street along the narrow remote footway, which has been signed as shared use.

The soft segregation for the COP26 diversion route does not extend as far as the Castlebank Street junction, even though Beith Street is a very wide road for a one lane each way road. Cyclists are diverted back onto the narrow footway to ge ... [more]

The ramps at the soft segregation provided for the COP26 diversion are tiny, and completely unusable should anyone turn up on anything other than a standard bicycle.

The soft segregation for the COP26 diversion on Beith Street does not even extend to the Benalder Street junction. It, like the similar work on Argyle Street, is done to a poor standard and provides a narrow space for cycling alongside the ... [more]

A diversion sign for the NCN7 COP26 diversion route obscured by a parked van. Not the van driver's fault, of course, since it should have been placed somewhere where it could be better seen.

The SEC covered walkway itself appeared to be open for business, although whether it was possible to get out the other end I don't know, having diverted around the gyratory system due to the sight at #175151.

The route to the SEC covered walkway appeared to be blocked.

Is this sign meant to be in use?

The Ferry Road dropped kerb (see #175002) did not stay clear for long. Again, materials dumped partly obstructing users of this dropped kerb.

The Clydeside Distillery has some cycle parking stands under a shelter.

The former NCN7 route at Pointhouse Road and the footbridge with steps over the Clydeside Expressway still form useful parts of the cycle network to differing degrees.

Temporary signs obstructing the northern end of the Benalder Street cycleway. Still no progress to report on the installation of traffic signals implied by the stopline and pedestrian crossing studs, or how the cycleway ties into the roa ... [more]

The end of the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway in Ferry Road is now usable.

The Benalder Street cycleway has now been connected to the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway, with the installation of the raised crossing. The old lamppost seen in #174295 has been removed.

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.

The present limit of the completed cycleway on Old Dumbarton Road at the rear of the Kelvin Hall. Work is ongoing to install the raised crossing at the Bunhouse Road junction.

Old Dumbarton Road closed for installing the raised crossing at the Bunhouse Road junction.

With NCN7 due to shut on Saturday, the cycle route on the diversion route on Old Dumbarton Road is still under construction at its eastern end. There does not appear to be any attempt to tie in the cycleway to the road network at this busy ... [more]

Unusably bad soft segregation has been put in on Argyle Street for the COP26 diversion route, and is dangerous for various reasons, including lorry parking right up to the pedestrian crossing point blocking sight lines. See also #175137.

Very poor soft segregation on Argyle Street for the COP26 diversion route.

Soft segregation has been put in on Argyle Street for the COP26 diversion route, but is of such poor quality that it is worse than useless. See also #175139.

  • Icon 175167 Limited pavement on Windingbrook Lane, Northampton, NN4 - several areas only have pavement on one side of the road, leading to pedestrians having to have to walk into the road to keep socially distanced.
