A section of the National Cycle Network Route 7 in Whiteinch has recently been upgradedIMG_20130405_105819 as part of the preparations for the Commonwealth Games. NCN7 runs from from Bells Bridge in Glasgow all the way to Balloch, has recently been completed. The work improves the connection between the NCN7 and the Scotstoun Stadium and Sports Centre, which will be a venue for table tennis and squash as well as a training venue for the track and field athletes.

The upgrade has seen the pavement in Primrose Street widened outside St Pauls Primary School. The exit from NCN7 onto Primrose Street has been widened and re-surfaced and ground level solar lighting installed as well as new signage. The cycle path then connects to the nature trail and up to the Stadium.
