I wonder if the @PoliceScotland “safety camera” van beside their offices at Shawfield today can see the road for all those cars parked on double yellow lines & across a cycle lane? And whose cars might they be..? Let me guess. https://t ... [more]

King Street's cycle lane doubles as an overtaking lane when there are parked cars about. A contraflow has been provided on the one-way section by permitting cycling on the existing footway.

Users of this cycle lane need to look out for oncoming motorists overtaking parked cars.

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]

The view along Calder Street.

I'm not sure how the cycle lane helps anything. The parked cars are more of a hazard than a low traffic sideroad with good sightlines.

End of shared footway, start of on-road painted cycle lanes to Cambuslang along the A724.

End of shared footway, start of on-road painted cycle lanes to Cambuslang along the A724.

Poor alignment of cycle lane for those going straight on, and for the eagle-eyed, route (74) turns left.

Spot the route sign telling cyclists on route (74) to cross the road.

A recommended route for cyclists, along the A724.

Primary school children are expected to cycle along the A724 with only painted cycle lanes for "protection" on route (74).

After the bus stop, the cycle lane resumes on the road.

The Territorial Army Centre sign has been moved from the right to the left side of the shared-use footway. The cycle lane on the road leaves the adjacent lane too narrow for the traffic using it. No mention that the 74 route turns left at t ... [more]

The cycle lane ends and cyclists directed onto the footway. This sign has (74) rather than the 74 used on other signs nearby. Note also the crayon bike symbol on the carriageway.

I don't know what the designer thought would happen here.

No real attempt to allow bike access to housing estate via path from main road, and quite narrow cycle lanes for a 40mph road.

Onto the footway at the roundabout at Drumsagard. South Lanarkshire Council has signed the A724 as NCN74, even though the Sustrans NCN74 goes to Uddingston to join NCN75.

Nothing special at these bus stops.

Back onto the footway for the roundabout.

Each of the entrances to Halfway Park has barriers across it and no dropped kerb, making it difficult for people on bikes to visit. Also, another sign for local primary schools, and car parking in the cycle lane.

A door-zone cycle lane past a layby, and if you get hit, there's nowhere for passing motorists to swerve to avoid hitting you.

The stop-start cycle lane starts again under the parked car at the right of the picture.

Continuous cycle lanes past sideroad and traffic island.

Just when the road gets to a narrow bit on a slight climb, the cycle lane stops briefly.

Narrow cycle lanes with no parking restrictions. When there were offices and other workplaces along here there would be lots of daytime car parking here. Shawfield Road represents a more direct route to Rutherglen than NCN756. Some of th ... [more]

Route sign for NCN75 on Bridge Street. Of the two signs pointing up Bridge Street, one is for route 74 and the other for (74). Despite this being a signed turning, and there being on-road cycle lanes, the only dropped kerb is beyond the ... [more]

So has the cycle route suddenly gone back onto the road? Without warning (or space) a cycle lane appears in the road, carefully painting around a pothole, and does the straight ahead arrow mean the route is going straight on at the junction ... [more]

While other parts of the country are starting to build bus stop bypasses, South Lanarkshire has come up with this. A triangular area marked as a bus stop, then the cycle lane transfers onto the footway, and the bus stop pole is just beyond ... [more]

Is the designer of this facility designing for triangular cars in the parking bay? Cycle lane in the doorzone.

Just as suddenly as when it started (in #70539) the cycle lane jumps back to the kerbside, just in time for some car parking.

After the bus stop the cycle lane suddenly jumps from the kerbside to the middle of the carriageway, and motorists are just driving in it.

Intermittent cycle lanes and car parking. Plus central hatching showing how much space is available to waste.

Hardly an 8-80 type of environment on NCN74 on the A724. Paint with no consideration for creating space for cycling.

Plenty of room to do something offering a little more protection.

The instruction is clear that the route transfers from the footway to the carriageway at the junction ahead, but drivers are driving their vehicles like the cycle lane beyond the junction isn't there.

The cycle route joins the A724, at a signalised roundabout. An Advance Stop Line has been provided, nothing else. From the signs further along the road, it appears cyclists are meant to join the footway at the far side of this junction ( ... [more]

Hamilton Road appears to be quite a busy rat-run, and traffic calming has been provided by means of chicanes. Advisory cycle lanes have been painted in one direction through these chicanes. This appears to encourage motorists to overtake cy ... [more]

An advisory cycle lane painted around one side of a traffic-calming chicane. Is this to encourage motorists to overtake cyclists in the chicane? A wider view of this location is at #70529.

The traffic calming on Hamilton Road is by means of chicanes. Cycle lanes have been painted in one direction through these chicanes.

Some of the cycle lanes on Reid Street were painted, then scorched off and then repainted narrower, before being coloured red. But with the kerbside and footway parking, an utter waste of time and money!

Short lengths of cycle lane have been painted on Reid Street. A complete waste of time and money! No attempt made to tackle the footway parking, and now there is cycle lane parking too.

The painted cycle lanes on King Street lead straight into the kerbside car parking in Caledonia Avenue.

On-road cycle lanes on King Street, with the westbound side being in the doorzone of a parking lay-by outside Royal Burgh House.

Back onto the carriageway for the final section of King Street.

The central cycle lane heads through the No Entry signs before turning onto the footway. Would it not have been better to move the Give Way line back and allow cyclists onto the footway with the protection of the buildout rather than cyclin ... [more]

A cycle lane in the middle of the (two-way) road approaching the one-way section of King Street!

Random car parking on A73/A70 in Hyndford, with start of cycle lanes to Lanark seen in background.

Approaching the end of the cycle lanes on the Lanark to Hyndford road. Cars are parked all over the place! This section of road is used by traffic from both the A73 and A70.

Cycle lane encroachment on approach to roundabout. Note how much of the red surface has been worn away.

The on-road cycle lanes continue right through the roundabout, but only for the route along the main road.

On-road cycle lanes on the Lanark to Hyndford cycle route.

Change of speed limit on Lanark to Hyndford cycle route. The on-road cycle lanes continue to Hyndford village.

End of the on-road cycle lanes section of the cycle route into Lanark from Hyndford. Spot the sign telling cyclists to turn right.

The start of the on-road cycle lanes section of the Lanark to Hyndford and Biggar cycle route.

Cycle lane (with wrong type of broken line) across junction mouth, and pavement hopping (see #38907) to get to toucan crossing across main road (see #38909) to avoid roundabout ahead

Cycle lane (with wrong type of broken line) across junction mouth, then pavement hopping (see #38908) to get to toucan crossing across main road (see #38909) to avoid roundabout ahead

No Cycling sign before end of shared-use footway opposite junction on Uddingston to East Kilbride cycle route. (see also #31484) There are also narrow advisory cycle lanes on this section of the A724.

Short length of shared-use footway between junctions on Uddingston to East Kilbride cycle route. The vegetation at side of path eats into the useable space somewhat, as well as restricting sighting of sign facing into bush! (see also #31485 ... [more]

Adding narrow cycle lanes to a busy and fast road does not make it safe to cycle! (50mph limit inter-urban road)

New cycle lanes on Glasgow Road, Shawfield, part of NCN 756 (as far as first junction on left). Cycle lanes stop at junction with main section of Glasgow Road. No waiting restrictions either (photo taken at weekend).
