Very poor sightlines where the path from the ramp of the footbridge and from Lindores Drive meets the Queensway footway.

Links to local streets from the north side of the Queensway footbridge.

Lots of barriers on the southern side of the Queensway footbridge at Sudbury Crescent.

Footbridge across Queensway, linking Sudbury Crescent and Lindores Drive, and other local streets. But no dropped kerb at the base of the ramp.

The railway footbridge from Tennant Avenue to Eaglesham Road (and towards Hairmyres Hospital) has steps at one end, and they look like they need replacing, so let's have a ramp instead.

The steps on the southwest side of the Queensway footbridge have been shut due to deteriorating concrete, leaving only the steps to the southeast for users. Perhaps it's time this footbridge was replaced.

Not only has the footbridge got steps and no ramp, but it is also in the way of the Queensway shared-use footway.

A bridge on the path from Hairmyres to Peel Park Place.

The Burns Park end of the footbridge across Kingsway.

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

I'm not sure whether this kerb is dropped or not, but the path leads to the ramped footbridge across Kingsway to Burns Park.

The cycle route from Blantyre joins NCN756. The railway path has now been properly surfaced.

An extremely narrow shared-use footway on the corner of Stoneymeadow Road and Whin Place.

The start of a very narrow shared-use footway on Stoneymeadow Road. The dropped kerb is just beyond the map sign.

Not a cycleway, just a footway alongside High Common Road, passing under Strathaven Road, with South Lanarkshire College in the background.

Blacklaw Drive, and footbridge. Again, no signage for East Kilbride cycle route 2 at the junction ahead.

East Kilbride cycle route 2 follows the asphalt path.

Steps on the path between The Centre Roundabout underpass and Avondale Avenue. Avoid this path on a bike.

Ramped footbridge over Stroud Road, looking towards Cedar Place.

Ramped footbridge over Stroud Road, looking towards Pine Crescent.

Ramped footbridge over Stroud Road at Pine Crescent.

Footbridge to Greenhills Library and shops.

The unusual timber and concrete footbridge across Greenhills Road to the Greenhills Library and shops.

Footbridges across Crosshouse Road (foreground) and Mallard Crescent (background). Plus a 'Cyclists Dismount' sign.

The path between Crosshouse and the Greenhills shops, crossing Crosshouse Road by means of a footbridge.

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

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]

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!

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 sign with destinations, but what if I want to go towards Philipshill Cemetery and Carmunnock (route visible through the bridge)?

A very narrow shared-use footway adjacent to the 'no expense spared' A727 dual carriageway flyover and sliproads.

Clyde bridge below Lanark at the start of the walkway

Another footbridge across a sliproad, another 'Cyclists Dismount' sign.

Although there has been nothing to indicate that cycling is allowed on this path, the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign implies that it is allowed. The alternative is the quasi-motorway A723.

Awkward barrier before railway bridge, so combined with the steps from Viewfield Avenue, I'd not be tempted to cycle this way on a regular basis.

While the Clyde Walkway isn't exactly an ideal cycle route, it is disappointing to see such an awkward barrier at the John St access in Blantyre.

Posts, one of them seemingly just for the hell of it! All three cars were driven through the second red light as well.

The toucan crossing call point post is completely obstructing the cycle side of the footway. If a post was put in a motorway lane like this, it would be flattened by someone driving into it.

The start of the M74 junction cycleway on Cambuslang Road.

The M74 junction cycleway starts just after a slight road narrowing, so users will have to take a defensive road position to avoid being run over, in which case they could just continue on the road in such a position.

The cycleway on the footway starts just after the first M74 on-ramp junction.

Access maintained for pedestrians and cyclists during bridge works. Narrow but way better than a lengthy diversion.

Dalmarnock Bridge - the link between the road to the Cuningar Loop park and NCN75 Clyde Walkway - all fenced in with guardrail. If going on-road, the turn at #87965 does not have a dropped kerb.

The Smart Bridge between Shawfield and Dalmarnock.

The new bridge connecting the Cuningar Loop park to the former athletes' village in Dalmarnock. But no connection to the Clyde Walkway below the bridge.

Lit main route through Cuningar Loop park.

NCN756 on the shared footway of Glasgow Road at the M74 motorway flyover. One of the better bits along this road, although there is no separation between the cycleway and the carriageway.

Advance Stop Line at the A70/A73 junction at Hyndford Bridge (at end of cycle track seen in #49697), and cycle route sign for Biggar for cyclists coming from Lanark. If turning left, note that the traffic signals will change for traffic ... [more]

The reason for the sign in #38930, the narrow and muddy path under Strathclyde Bridge, where no attempt has been made to improve the path

Route sign on Avon Water path

Cyclists Dismount signs at bridge over Avon Water

Cycle path with separate footway, under railway line in East Kilbride (see also #31496)

The David Livingstone Memorial Footbridge over the River Clyde, between Bothwell and Blantyre

Footbridge over M74 sliproads near Strathclyde Park. This section is "Cyclists Dismount" (or cycle on the A723 dual carriageway through the motorway junction).
