The path parallel to Whitemoss Avenue and then Churchill Avenue, approaching the underpass beneath Whitemoss Avenue.

Although the lighting has been replaced in recent years, the path from the bus stop on Queensway to Tennant Avenue (and onwards to Hairmyres Hospital) is narrow, has poor quality paving, and has no dropped kerbs at its crossing with Linwood ... [more]

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

The narrow footway here forms part of the East Kilbride to Thorntonhall and Eaglesham cycle route. A pedestrian shown for scale.

The shared footway (although there has been no sign to say so) goes through a bus stop without any widening. Luckily for me, a bus had just left.

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

A shared footway that is narrower than the adjacent unshared footway.

Is the cycleway so narrow because it is one-way? Probably not.

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.

The Stewartfield Way shared footway - no wider on this stretch than it was further east.

A path signed as a cycle access to NCN756, but could do with being a little bit wider. The road at the top, Logie Park, is one way, but there is no sign to tell cyclists this.

The cycle route from Blantyre leaves Wilson Place to join NCN756, but no mention of NCN756 on the sign. A dropped kerb at the end of the path would be of assistance to anyone cycling to or from Wilson Place itself.

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 shared footway continues along East Mains Road, to meet up with NCN756.

The narrow shared footway at the Whirlies Roundabout.

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]

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.

No attempt to resolve conflict at the Kingsgate Retail Park bus stop on NCN756. No option to go around the back of the shelter as in #107619.

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

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]

An illustration of why these shared-use footways are all a bit too narrow. Earphones in and got a surprise when I slowly edged ahead. But no harm done. Just everyday cycling on the infrastructure provided. Stewartfield Way is apparently ... [more]

The shared footway outside the Alison Lea Medical Centre. I don't know who thought that this would be an adequate design.

Limited sight lines at the St Leonards Road traffic lights on the Calderwood Road shared footway.

I'm hoping this newly marked cycle path alongside Whitemoss Avenue will be widened once the work behind the hoardings has been finished.

'Slow' - a path that needs widened once the work behind the hoarding is finished.

The shared footway to the north of Blackwood is fairly narrow, right next to the carriageway, and ends pretty much as soon as it's past the 30mph signs. So roadies don't use it and it would be difficult to pass someone coming the other way ... [more]

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

A very narrow shared-use footway past a bus stop.

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

More obstructions on the narrow Mill Street footway.

A narrow footway unsuitable for cycling, but at either end has cycle facilities, seen in #90566 and #90572.

If cyclists are to stay on the footway at #90566, they will end up here at a very narrow section of footway through a bus shelter.

The narrow path is covered in mud washed down from the Cathkin Relief Road embankment.

The new route of NCN756 is over the right fork to the toucan crossing. The path ahead leads to a high kerb. I took a group ride over this and half of them went straight on, and it's not difficult to see why, especially with the old Give Way ... [more]

One branch of route (74) takes this narrow path between houses to reach Glasgow Road.

South Lanarkshire Council is excelling itself here, I think.

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.

The solution to the Whistleberry gap was not to build a ramp to the steps next to the A725, but to sign the existing footway as a cycleway, with no widening at bus stops, just markings.

The solution to the Whistleberry gap was not to build a ramp to the steps next to the A725, but to sign the existing footway as a cycleway, including a couple of toucan crossings across the A724. It has also been signed with (74) signs even ... [more]

The solution to the Whistleberry gap was not to build a ramp to the steps next to the A725, but to sign the existing footway as a cycleway.

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]

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.

A very narrow town centre footway that has been made shared use due to this part of King Street being one-way!

This footway has been made shared use, even though it is so narrow!

A very poor section of shared footway on the corner of Quay Road and Glasgow Road.

Plenty of roadspace, but clearly this footway has not been widened when it was "converted" to a shared-use foot and cycleway. There's no dropped kerb for cyclists to rejoin the carriageway if they are not turning left into Yews Crescent.

After crossing Glasgow Road, the cycle route goes down another narrow path, with another black-painted barrier. Since there is another barrier between the path and the road, why is the second barrier necessary? However, it would be bette ... [more]

The cycle route is via a narrow path to an unsignalised crossing of the A724, then along the footway to use another narrow path, before heading around the rear of the tower block, all because the powers that be won't tackle the real issue o ... [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

Needlessly narrow shared-use path next to East Kilbride Road at bus stop, with Cyclists Dismount signs

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

Birkhill Road, between Lee Castle and Crossford
