A newly improved connection between Whitemoss Road and the Whitemoss Roundabout underpasses. But no direction signs for the cycle route nearby. The bin probably doesn't have to be located in the actual cycle track either.

A warning (not triangular) of low height at the Whitemoss Roundabout.

Route signs at the Whitemoss Roundabout for the cycle route to Brancumhall, but the Health Centre pointed to is not the closest health centre to this location, and so could be confusing.

The start of the cycle track for the Whitemoss Roundabout diverging from the carriageway of Kingsway. It could be extended back along the verge to meet the cycle track from the Birniehill Roundabout.

The Birniehill Roundabout cycle track merges onto the Kingsway carriageway, but there is room for it to continue off-road until the Whitemoss Roundabout where another cycle track starts. Again, tyre tracks in the mud and grass give away the ... [more]

The start of the cycle track approaching the Birniehill Roundabout, and the newer path put in for East Kilbride cycle route 2, coming from Mount Cameron Drive North.

Room for the cycle track at Whitemoss Roundabout to continue alongside the dual carriageway to reach Birniehill Roundabout, but instead, the cycle track merges with the A725 Kingsway carriageway. The footway to the left continues roughly ... [more]

Broken glass in the underpass at Whitemoss Roundabout. The only one of the town centre underpasses I found in such a state.

The underpass from Maxwellton Road under Kingsway ramps up to Maxwell Drive. The sign for NCN756 suggests cyclists are expected, yet there is no dropped kerb to join the carriageway at the end of the ramp. However, there is a dropped ker ... [more]

The Maxwellton Road underpass beneath Kingsway is unlit during daytime, apart from the skylight in the central reservation. A far cry from the neat conservation area on Maxwellton Road.

The underpass beneath Kingsway at the end of Maxwellton Road has ramps and is possible to cycle, but has lots of sharp corners. The dropped kerb is also a bit of a bump.

This track runs parallel to Kingsway and leads through to the Whitemoss Recreation Area and roundabout. A through route for cycling, but not driving.

The excellent footbridge across Kingsway, connecting Kelso Drive and Burns Park. A few more of these wouldn't go amiss!

The shared footway leading to Kingsway.

The only other person I saw on a bike in this part of the town. Poor infrastructure does not inspire great usage. The roadsign across the road is wrong in stating that motorway regulations apply to the road to the right at the junction a ... [more]

Signs at the Whitemoss Roundabout, including some pointing up a flight of steps.

Signs at the Whitemoss Roundabout. I can see a problem with the route to the Sports Centre, and I'm not sure the signs for the Health Centre are pointing the right way. The nearest health centre might be the Hunter Health Centre back in the ... [more]

This way to the cycle route, at Whitemoss Roundabout.

A sign for the Sports Centre, but what about the cycle route all the way to Brancumhall?

A path being widened at Whitemoss Roundabout.

I did suggest at a meeting with Transport Scotland that they link the two bridges across the Raith Interchange roundabout with a bridge over the M74 motorway, creating a far more direct route. But they weren't having it. "Eyesore" or "distr ... [more]

A toucan crossing across the dual carriageway connects Bothwell to the Raith Interchange walking and cycling provision. As it forms part of the junction traffic signal system, one side of motor traffic is stopped before the other.

The path from the Raith Interchange continues alongside the dual carriageway to Bothwell Bridge. There is literally nothing on this side of the road. A toucan crossing is provided for getting across to Bothwell.

The end of the ramp from the Raith Interchange roundabout cycle bridge (see #93301) ends at the A725 sliproad. There are then some right-angled corners to turn at and toucan crossings to cross to get to Bothwell. Queuing drivers also see ... [more]

The ramp from the cycle bridge over the Raith Interchange roundabout comes down in the No Man's Land between two dual carriageways, rather than on the side where Bothwell is. Users therefore have to cross four carriageways using toucan cros ... [more]

The second cycle bridge across the Raith Interchange roundabout requires all users to pass under it and go around a loop to get up to it. There isn't even a staircase shortcut for walkers!

A convoluted underpass for pedestrians at the busy East Kilbride Expressway junction.

A convoluted underpass for pedestrians at the busy East Kilbride Expressway junction. Clearly some people walk around the side to avoid it and take their chances crossing the sliproads.

"Discontinuous National Cycle Route - Rejoin route after 600 yds on Whistleberry Rd" "Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway" No dropped kerb to rejoin carriageway, and no signage for those unfamiliar with the area to get to Whistleberry Road. The ... [more]

Several of the roundabouts in East Kilbride town centre have their own cycle and pedestrian roundabouts in the centre of the road roundabout, with access via underpasses and sliproad-style cycle tracks. This is the start of the cycle track ... [more]
