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

A new roundabout at Mavor Avenue/Avon Drive. It wasn't clear where the cycle route went.

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.

Steps linking from Dunblane Drive onto the East Kilbride railway path. If there was the political will, there would be a ramp here.

The East Kilbride railway path near Dunblane Drive (to the left) and Halfmerke Primary School (to the right).

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]

A route sign for NCN756 in Old Mill Road, although I don't think Glasgow is just one mile further along the route than Rutherglen.

Cycle parking at East Kilbride station, one of two shelters, and a shared footway on Torrance Road.

A busy junction between Kittoch Street and West Mains Road.

A vandalised sign for NCN756 in a non-standard format, and no dropped kerb to allow cyclists to leave the carriageway and join the path.

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 access to NCN756 is vulnerable to blockage by van parking at Glamis Drive.

The railway path into East Kilbride, NCN756, with a sign for "Primary Schools" off to the left.

The older path connects Highfield Place and The Gateway, while the newer path connects across to NCN756 on the railway path. No signage, but as NCN756 also joins The Gateway, it can be reached by either route for those heading north.

Clear signage for destinations along NCN756, but none for some of the paths off to the side. Highfield Place's turn-off.

The railway path into East Kilbride, part of NCN756.

NCN756 turns left to leave the railway path alignment, while the cycle route to Blantyre and Hamilton starts, but is only signed as going to East Mains. There's a sign for Hamilton up on Wilson Place.

NCN756 leaves the railway path and joins The Gateway and Mavor Avenue.

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

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.

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.

Chapelside Road signed as a 'No Through Road' but is a through road for walking and cycling, and can be used to bypass the poor crossing facilities around the A749 to get to Nerston East or for heading east.

I'm not too sure what's going on here.

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

An update on #28413, taken from the opposite direction.

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 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.

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.

To get onto the cycle route to Stewartfield from NCN756 on West Mains Road, the simplest way appears to be to use the slip onto Torrance Road and then the dropped kerb inside the junction.

The connection from Barr Terrace to NCN756 on West Mains Road is pedestrian only.

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

The path at Shawfield heading away from the Smartbridge.

Art?

The Smartbridge at Shawfield.

Something has happened that has caused the still fairly new main riverside path to be closed. Diversion via the secondary path.

Part of Richmond Park has been sold for housing, and thus NCN756's route is presently severed.

NCN756 continues along Larchfield Drive, but the path to the left is also a cycle path and goes up to run alongside the Cathkin Relief Road.

A path up to the Cathkin Relief Road from Larchfield Drive.

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]

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.

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]

It seems the designer expects cyclists to cross to the park using the toucan crossing away to the right, rather than crossing the centre of the junction. Coming from the park there are no push-buttons for the crossing at the park gate.

The Smart Bridge between Shawfield and Dalmarnock.

The junction of NCN74 on King Street and NCN756 on the shared footway of Glasgow Road (see also #70517). Users are expected to bump a kerb and pass a No Entry sign.

Signs at the junction of NCN756 on the shared footway of Glasgow Road, and NCN74 on King Street (see also #70518).

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

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.

The path between the Smart Bridge and Glasgow Road. Could do with a dropped kerb at the end.

Dig it up, put a bus shelter on it, then slap some paint on it! Shared path for #cycling @SouthLanCouncil style http://t.co/Pfpx2Vc1Ig

http://t.co/JgH6ypdNpX can you please stop parking your vans on the #cycling path in Rutherglen #Glasgow road? http://t.co/JYtxWMQXMX

Found this in the middle of route 756 today at Rutherglen. Shared path. Any advice? @magnatom @sustrans http://t.co/HiDOGBUjxF

I'm not sure what the designers were thinking here.

Even without the temporary fencing this shared use footway makes a poor cycle route, with no separation from the main Glasgow Road carriageway, no bypasses at bus stops, Cyclists Dismount signs at pedestrian crossings, but there is a servic ... [more]

NCN 756 crossing of busy Kingsgate Retail Park access road at partly-signalised roundabout, frequently blocked by vehicles waiting at roundabout

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

NCN 756 approaching toucan crossing across East Kilbride Road

NCN 756 on Johnstone Drive, Rutherglen. The sign is rather small and does not give route number.

Junction of NCN 756 and East Kilbride to Uddingston cycle route. The sign with back to camera should be pointing toward camera, i.e. towards East Kilbride.

NCN 756 crosses Stewartfield Way at this toucan crossing, while there is a continuation of the shared-use footway along most of the rest of this road to the agriculture museum on the west side of town.

NCN 756 is on a shared-use footway through industrial estate

The surface of the railway path section of NCN 756 in East Kilbride has still not been upgraded. UPDATE: The railway path has since been asphalted, see #108031.

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).

Can you tell what it is yet?

Look out for the sign tucked down a side-street.

Pavement hopping on Camp Road. See also #33726.

Cycle track linking Larchfield Drive to Burnside Road. A tad narrow, but a good idea at least. Lamp-posts within the path make it narrower still.

There's a steep climb coming out of Rutherglen, or a good view going in.

NCN756 ends for the bus stop, then starts up again.

Give Way to the fence, you know it makes sense!

Everybody Give Way tonight!

Pole in shared-use footway, Nerston, by East Kilbride. This is NCN 756.
