The desire line seen in #113801 comes over the mound and onto the path seen to the right of this picture. If there is no special reason to retain the mound, it should be removed and a proper path provided as a through route from the East Ki ... [more]

The path from Logie Park splits to form a triangular junction with the East Kilbride railway path. Left for the town centre, right for towards Kingsgate.

The path to Logie Park heads to the right, but there is a desire line over the mound straight ahead to get to the railway path. See also #113803 looking from the opposite direction.

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]

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

Poor quality path in a park signed as shared use.

A new 'No Entry' sign for the resurfaced cycle off-ramp from Churchill Avenue at the Murray Roundabout, but no longer any signs for local routes 2 and 3. So close to the town centre, but no wayfinding.

The path seen being widened in #107574, and now officially shared use, alongside Churchill Avenue in East Kilbride.

The Queensway footway changes from asphalt to slabs, and shimmies to the side slightly. The drainage is poor.

Path junctions outside Westwood Road underpass from Dunedin Park. Duncanrig Secondary School is to the right.

No dropped kerb at end of path at Columbia Way.

The Mossneuk cycleway changes from unsegregated to line segregated path, although it isn't signed as such, for the final section to Newlands Road. The crossing footpath has priority over the cycleway.

The path from Queensway to Tennant Avenue appears to suffer from ponding, and is covered in mud. There's also no easy way onto the carriageway for cyclists due to the parking.

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]

The path from Peel Park Place climbing up from the railway bridge to Eaglesham Road at Hairmyres.

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

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

The Glen Road path, linking Stewartfield Way to actual Glen Road, which leads towards Carmunnock and Glasgow.

Arrotshole Road path climbs up towards the Morrison's supermarket, with other paths connecting at various points.

This section of Arrotshole Road has been closed to motor vehicles.

The Burns Park end of the footbridge across Kingsway.

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

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 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.

The view out of the sliproad underpass towards a roundabout and development site. Room for upgrading.

A footway next to the High Common Road/Strathaven Road sliproad. If this was upgraded to a cycleway, there's room to move the path away from the road to give better sightlines into the underpass.

East Kilbride's cycle route 3 continues alongside the A726 to the Calderglen Country Park overflow car park.

The footway and cycleway merge together for the High Common Road sliproad crossing. The 'shared use' sign has completely faded out.

The cycleway merges into the bus stop layby, but the layout could easily be revised within the available space.

Before route 3's path was built, cyclists were expected to return to the carriageway once past the roundabout.

A path across the Blacklaw Drive roundabout and into the Tesco supermarket. There are no signs for East Kilbride cycle route 2 at this roundabout. However, the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign has vanished too.

A path across the roundabout in Blacklaw Drive, and onwards through the housing scheme.

Someone needs to set up a website 'Rate My Asphalting'.

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

Give way at the schools entrance.

Both paths have cycle signs on them, so possibly could divert if a heavily laden bus pulls up and starts unloading, but otherwise the left path goes directly to the school and the right is for following Calderwood Road.

Cross Carlyle Drive behind a waiting car.

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

Options to pass in front of or behind the bus shelter, depending on bus passenger activity.

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

A path being widened at Whitemoss Roundabout.

The cycleway along the Whitemoss Avenue footway (see #107581) is signed into the park and towards Avondale Avenue (and the path with steps in #107573).

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 path parallel to Churchill Avenue is being widened, although not by much.

A slightly wider path next to Greenhills Primary School, although the lampposts have been planted within the width of the path, making it effectively slightly narrower.

A ramped path retro-fitted next to two and half steps without a banister, creating a slightly complex junction behind the Cedar Drive shop.

Path parallel to Cedar Drive.

Ramped footbridge over Stroud Road at Pine Crescent.
