A person on a bike leaves NCN756 on the Mavor Avenue shared footway to cross to the new retail park.

The dropped kerb associated with the crossing from the NCN756 Mavor Avenue shared footway, necessary for southbound cyclists due to the blind bend at the Gateway junction, has been removed and replaced with a regular kerb.

The start of the railway path section of NCN756, leaving East Kilbride, at St Bryde Lane. The traffic calming strips present a hazard to turning cyclists and could easily be bypassed with a more convenient access onto the path to the left. ... [more]

Not a cycling route, but this footway crosses Stuart Street at an uncontrolled crossing near to the Priestknowe Roundabout, so is a bit difficult to cross at busy times. Traffic reduction through East Kilbride Village would help. The sal ... [more]

The car park entrance for the new Lidl supermarket is across the new Churchill Avenue shared cycle path. An update on #107576.

The Mossneuk cycleway crosses Wellesley Crescent and heads over to Newlands Road.

The Mossneuk cycle route crossing Mossneuk Road.

The cycle route into East Kilbride crosses Glenburn Way, but ends at the next junction at #31505. Since this road is one-way, a sign to diagram 810 would be appropriate here to inform those crossing.

Not only does the cycle route cross Stewartfield Way at this split pedestrian crossing, and not a toucan crossing with the extra call buttons, but the sign for the cycle route into East Kilbride is pointing the wrong way! There are no furth ... [more]

The cycle route into East Kilbride crosses Stewartfield Way at this split pedestrian crossing.

The Redwood Drive shared footway crosses Redwood Crescent next to the roundabout.

The Redwood Drive cycleway detours to cross Redwood Crescent.

A split pelican crossing across Redwood Drive, rather than a toucan crossing with extra call buttons, when it forms part of a cycling route. It took a while for the lights to change.

Anonymous route signs for the cycle route to Thorntonhall and Eaglesham, but nothing for the shared footway ahead.

The end of the Stewartfield Way cycle route, from Kingsgate to the National Museum of Rural Life. The bollards were a little tight, especially so close to the turn onto the crossing.

Toucan crossing across Stewartfield Way, primarily for the Stewartfield Way cycle route, but also useful for the Glen Road path (straight ahead).

The Stewartfield Way cycleway approaches its destination at the National Museum of Rural Life. There used to be markings on the footway beyond the toucan crossing saying 'END', now faded away, since the shared-use section on this side ha ... [more]

The Stewartfield Way cycleway takes a detour half way to the next roundabout at each of the Macivor Crescent junctions. It may even be quicker, although marginally longer, just to cycle round Macivor Crescent.

The Stewartfield Way cycleway takes a detour half way to the next roundabout at each of the Macivor Crescent junctions. It may even be quicker, although marginally longer, just to cycle round Macivor Crescent.

The Stewartfield Way cycleway crosses Macneish Way (which is the entrance to the Morrison's supermarket) here, but no help to cross this busy road, not even use of a central island due to where the dropped kerbs have been installed.

A connection between the cycle route from Blantyre, NCN756, and Iona Avenue, via a toucan crossing across East Mains Road. Iona Avenue leads to Kelso Drive where there is a ramped footbridge across Kingsway. Also, if the markings barely fit ... [more]

The cycle route from Blantyre crosses Wilson Place to join NCN756, but no mention of NCN756 on the signs. Also, if the markings barely fit on the pavement, the shared footway is probably too narrow.

The Blantyre to East Kilbride cycle route crosses Kingsway here.

Crossing sliproads at Lee's Burn Court. Shared footways barely wide enough to paint the relevant markings on, and giving way to traffic coming from behind.. A more enlightened development would have brought the path through from Stoneyme ... [more]

A split toucan crossing across A749 dual carriageway for NCN756 to get to Nerston village en route to Rutherglen and Glasgow.

Motorists: Don't U-turn Cyclists: U-turn The A749 crossing on NCN756 outside the Kingsgate Retail Park, before the cycle route makes its way through Nerston village.

No improvement at the Kingsgate Retail Park entrance crossing on NCN756.

Waiting to cross. The bush seems to be taking over the NCN756 shared footway.

A new pedestrian crossing connecting the shared-use footway on Stewartfield Way to a sports centre across the road. Why no provision for cycling across?

The Stewartfield cycle route meets the cycle route along Stewartfield Way (connecting the National Museum of Rural Life to NCN756 at Kingsgate), but only directional signage for the latter.

The Stewartfield cycle path crosses Macarthur Drive.

The Stewartfield cycle path crossing Stewartfield Road.

The cycle signage now continues right along the path to Stewartfield.

The Stewartfield cycle path meets West Mains Road. Navigate between the bus shelter and the cabinet to get to the toucan crossing.

The cycle route to Stewartfield doesn't actually have any destination signs in the direction towards Stewartfield. Turn right here for Stewartfield, or continue straight ahead to #31495 where the shared footway along West Mains Road ends. ... [more]

The cycle route to Stewartfield approaching the toucan crossing where the route leaves West Mains Road.

A new toucan crossing replacing a footbridge with stepped ramps over West Mains Road. But nowhere obvious to cycle on the far side of the crossing.

The cycle route to Stewartfield at Strathfillan Road.

The cycle route to Stewartfield passing Kirtonholme Recreation Area.

A decrepit shared footway approaching the uncontrolled crossing across the High Common Road sliproad from Strathaven Road. Room for improvement.

The widened footway on this side of Calderwood Road ends, but not before it has been obstructed by a control cabinet for the toucan crossing.

The Calderwood Road shared footway switches sides at the toucan crossing ahead.

The Calderwood Road shared footway, with a bus shop, footway parking, and a pinch-point crossing on the road across to a school.

Give way at Capelrig Drive, with space for a waiting car.

Give way at the schools entrance.

Cross Carlyle Drive behind a waiting car.

Give way to drivers exiting the Whitemoss Recreation Area - loss of priority.

New cycle markings and site entrance on Churchill Avenue, complete with obstructive sign posts. Once this site is operational, it looks like cyclists will have to wait for drivers exiting the car park to move off the crossing. The 'Give ... [more]

The exit from Headhouse Greenway at Telford Road. Pass between the columns to get to the Queensway underpass directly to the shopping centre.

No barriers at the Livingstone Drive crossing, but potentially vulnerable to obstruction by car parking.

The only barriers I encountered on the Whitehills cycle route, and no signage to say whether the route goes straight ahead to the Queensway underpass or turns right along Strathcona Place towards the Murray Roundabout.

Toucan crossing across Murray Road at Whitehills Terrace.

Car park road crossing and ramp to underpass at Greenhills shops.

Barriers across the path at Curlew Drive, the Crosshouse Primary School access road.

Barriers across the path at Mallard Crescent, and no dropped kerb.

Barriers at Burnside View raised crossing. Hardly a busy main road!

The path from Lonsdale Gait goes right through Newlandsmuir to meet up with #107473. A proper crossing across Greenhills Road would help.

Barriers on the paths either side of Newlandsmuir Road. Quite why East Kilbride's cycle route 1 doesn't go straight across and along the path ahead right through to Lonsdale Gait (avoiding the Greenhills Road roundabout) I don't know.

The route from Bothwell to Strathclyde Country Park through the Raith Interchange first involves heading towards Bothwell Bridge to cross the dual carriageway in the toucan crossing seen in #93304.

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 anonymous cycle route signs points left, but the rather narrow footway straight ahead is also shared-use, as can be seen in #92637.

The sign says some anonymous cycle route turns right, but the footway to the left is also shared-use. Plus another pedestrian crossing on a cycle route where a toucan crossing (with the extra call buttons) would be expected.

The shared-use footway changes sides across the A726 dual carriageway, but the crossing is only a pedestrian crossing and not a toucan crossing.

The toucan crossing boxes at Rodger Drive have a restricted angle of view (see also #90573), but boxes across the road can been seen when this one is still dark.

The toucan crossing boxes at Rodger Drive have a restricted angle of view (see also #90574).

The Mill Street footway has a single toucan crossing at the Rodger Drive junction, outside Overtoun Park. NCN756 is present within the park.

The Mill Street footway has toucan crossings at the King's Park Avenue junction.

The Cathkin Relief Road's cyclepath looks more and more like an ordinary footway the further north it gets. But still has markings to remind users. No shared-use signage anywhere.

Nothing can be built to line up anymore when it comes to paths. The Cathkin Relief Road's pedestrian crossing at Fernhill Road.

The cycle path alongside the Cathkin Relief Road, and a toucan crossing leading to a path to Fernhill.

The path from Larchfield Drive is obstructed by barriers, then there is an uncontrolled crossing of the Cathkin Relief Road, and steps and a hair-pin path up to Fernhill.

Quite an awkward approach to the new toucan crossing alongside the Cathkin Relief Road.

Simple route to crossing on this side, but a mess on the other side (see #90314).

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.

Avant garde railing at Pollock Avenue road crossing. The traffic here is fast, but no signalised crossing has been provided. The path ahead is on the course of an old railway line to Peacock Cross.

It's possible to walk from Queen St, across the High Blantyre Road split Zebra Crossing, and into Stewart St, but there is no provision for cycling.

It's possible to walk from Stewart St, across the High Blantyre Road split Zebra Crossing, and into Queen St, but there is no provision for cycling.

Route (74) wiggles its way through the staggered junction at Calder St/Stonefield Road.

Route (74) crossing Cypress Avenue. I guess the 'Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway' sign should be facing the other way.

A branch of route (74) crosses Cypress Avenue.

Route (74) shared footway crossing Ballantrae Road.

The toucan crossing across the A724 links route (74) and the ASDA supermarket.

Totally inadequate shared footway/cycleway in downtown Blantyre, with toucan crossing in the distance where route (74) crosses the A724 to meet NCN74 in the park.

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

Another model horse in the middle of a busy junction, but only some arms of the junction have pedestrian crossings. No obvious reason why they aren't toucan crossings with shared-use footways all around. The crossings also seem to be of the ... [more]

At the top of the ramp from the retail park, no pedestrian crossing across Palace Grounds Road to get to the other pedestrian crossings on the fast and busy A72/A723 roundabout! There is no pedestrian crossing across Keith St here either, s ... [more]

Motoring convenience prioritised over walking and cycling at minor Chapel St junction.

The Chapel St crossing has a 'Cyclists Dismount' sign, even though it has toucan crossing like most of the other crossings. Not much thought has gone into aligning this junction for walking and cycling.

An unsignalled crossing of this car park entrance ramp.

Another toucan crossing on the cycle route along Leechlee Road.

A model horse in the middle of the Brandon St/Leechlee Road junction, which appears to have been dumped on some kind of mosaic, plus another toucan crossing.

The first sign of a cycle route in Hamilton town centre - a toucan crossing across Brandon Street.

An unsignalled crossing of Blantyre Farm Road, next to the busy A724 mini-roundabout, for primary school children. The dropped kerb doesn't even match the width of the cycle markings.

Route (74) goes for an unsignalled crossing of Blantyre Farm Road next to the busy A724 mini-roundabout.

A car parked across the dropped kerb for the route (74) crossing. The sign post isn't much better.

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

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

This crossing at Cameron Way would be categorised as an example of good practice if it weren't for the high kerbs each side of the road.
