A hostile road environment for anyone cycling to the Kingsgate Retail Park. The roundabout decoration does nothing to improve it.

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.

A newly improved connection between Whitemoss Road and the Whitemoss Roundabout underpasses. But no direction signs for the cycle route nearby. The bin probably doesn't have to be located in the actual cycle track either.

A warning (not triangular) of low height at the Whitemoss Roundabout.

Route signs at the Whitemoss Roundabout for the cycle route to Brancumhall, but the Health Centre pointed to is not the closest health centre to this location, and so could be confusing.

The start of the cycle track for the Whitemoss Roundabout diverging from the carriageway of Kingsway. It could be extended back along the verge to meet the cycle track from the Birniehill Roundabout.

The Birniehill Roundabout cycle track merges onto the Kingsway carriageway, but there is room for it to continue off-road until the Whitemoss Roundabout where another cycle track starts. Again, tyre tracks in the mud and grass give away the ... [more]

The accumulating mud on the cycle track at the Righead Roundabout shows that, despite conditions, people are using it. The underpass on the right leads to cycle tracks on the other sides of the roundabout.

The cycle track leaves the Queensway carriageway in time for the Righead Roundabout. There is plenty of room for it to have been off-road all the way along here.

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

No cycling or walking on the Glasgow Southern Orbital road.

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

The Redwood Drive shared footway continues south, but it is not clear how far it extends.

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.

The 'Cycles Only' sign at the start of the cycle track at the Righead Roundabout on Murrayhill has been facing the wrong way for years.

No demand for a cycleway alongside Queensway between Righead and The Murray Roundabouts? Pedestrians have their own footway all the way, but cyclists are expected to cycle on the dual carriageway. Evidently, not all do!

Despite there being room for a cycleway alongside Queensway between Righead and The Murray Roundabouts, cyclists are expected to cycle on the dual carriageway. Pedestrians have their own footway all the way.

The cycle track from Queensway to The Murray Roundabout, and parallel footway.

The underpass under Rothesay Street leading to the shopping centre from The Murray Roundabout, and on the right a truncated cycle path removed when the Churchill Avenue road layout was altered to allow easier motoring.

Both East Kilbride cycle routes 2 and 3 turn right after the underpass, but definitely not NCN route 3.

The cycle track from Churchill Avenue carriageway for avoiding The Murray Roundabout being resurfaced. On the right, the newly upgraded shared-use footway that runs the full length of Churchill Avenue.

East Kilbride cycle routes 2 and 3 turn left here, but only this tiny vandalised sign marks the way.

The start of the cycle track approaching the Birniehill Roundabout, and the newer path put in for East Kilbride cycle route 2, coming from Mount Cameron Drive North.

Room for the cycle track at Whitemoss Roundabout to continue alongside the dual carriageway to reach Birniehill Roundabout, but instead, the cycle track merges with the A725 Kingsway carriageway. The footway to the left continues roughly ... [more]

Broken glass in the underpass at Whitemoss Roundabout. The only one of the town centre underpasses I found in such a state.

The narrow shared footway at the Whirlies Roundabout.

The turn into Kingsway at another roundabout. There's no connection between this cycle route and NCN756 at the opposite side of this roundabout.

The Blantyre to East Kilbride cycle route turns from Stoneymeadow Road onto the shared footway leading to Kingsway.

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

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

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 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.

An underpass at the Birniehill Roundabout.

A fine example of a 'Cycles Only' sign, at the start of the cycle track leading to the Birniehill Roundabout underpasses.

An "improved" roundabout at Stroud Road and Kelvin Road. Not improved for cycling, as far as I can see.

South Lanarkshire College visible, but with no entrance here.

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

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

East Kilbride cycle routes 2 and 3 come out of the underpass and split to proceed in opposite directions. So I'd expect better signage than this!

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.

The original cycle track from the Whitemoss Roundabout joins Calderwood Road, but a new shared-use footway starts and continues to the Alison Lea Health Centre, from where there is a local cycle route extending to Brancumhall.

Signs at the Whitemoss Roundabout, including some pointing up a flight of steps.

Signs at the Whitemoss Roundabout. I can see a problem with the route to the Sports Centre, and I'm not sure the signs for the Health Centre are pointing the right way. The nearest health centre might be the Hunter Health Centre back in the ... [more]

This way to the cycle route, at Whitemoss Roundabout.

A sign for the Sports Centre, but what about the cycle route all the way to Brancumhall?

A sign for East Kilbride town centre. But choose the further away path if you intend to use the shared footway and don't want to bump over the grass (see #107587).

The original cycle track leads cyclists out onto the busy Whitemoss Road carriageway. But the footway has been made shared use, without a connection being made between the cycle track and the footway to allow transfer onto the shared footwa ... [more]

The original layout at four of East Kilbride's roundabouts was that cyclists could leave the road before the roundabout, use the underpasses (including a pedestrian and cyclist roundabout in the centre such as at #107590), and then rejoin t ... [more]

A path being widened at Whitemoss Roundabout.

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

The Centre Roundabout doesn't have any cycle facilities (unlike the other town centre roundabouts) but does have a ramp to bypass the steps at the town centre side.

The continuity of Netherton Road (now a path) has been destroyed by the junction at Applegate Drive. Not even a dropped kerb at the end of the path (which has been slewed away from its original alignment).

Another roundabout on East Kilbride's cycle route 1, this one at Crosshouse Road.

East Kilbride's cycle route 1 crosses Greenhills Road at this roundabout. There is a plan to dual Greenhills Road because it is so busy at peak times (although you'd never guess at 11am!).

East Kilbride's cycle route 1 crosses Greenhills Road at this roundabout. Quiet enough mid morning, but this road is so busy at peak times it is to be dualled.

Signs for the inbound version of East Kilbride's cycle route 1, which ends up on Cornwall Street before the turn into Blacklands Road.

Pedestrian signage at the Righead Roundabout, and over next to the underpass, an outbound sign for East Kilbride's cycle route 1.

The path to the underpasses at the Righead Roundabout. The path ahead joins with Queensway (A726). No sign for East Kilbride's cycle route 1 which turns right into the underpass.

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]

A convoluted underpass for pedestrians at the busy East Kilbride Expressway junction.

A convoluted underpass for pedestrians at the busy East Kilbride Expressway junction. Clearly some people walk around the side to avoid it and take their chances crossing the sliproads.

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]

NCN74 crosses the entrance to a busy supermarket, which, being some distance from much local housing, is accessed mostly by car.

Onto the footway at the roundabout at Drumsagard. South Lanarkshire Council has signed the A724 as NCN74, even though the Sustrans NCN74 goes to Uddingston to join NCN75.

Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway, at right angles!

This traffic island has a cage.

The cycleway around the roundabout at Drumsagard, where the traffic island isn't even big enough for the Give Way triangle!

The cycleway around the roundabout at Drumsagard.

Back onto the footway for the roundabout.

The cycle route joins the A724, at a signalised roundabout. An Advance Stop Line has been provided, nothing else. From the signs further along the road, it appears cyclists are meant to join the footway at the far side of this junction ( ... [more]

The crossing of Whitehill Road, right next to the A724 roundabout.

Cycle lane encroachment on approach to roundabout. Note how much of the red surface has been worn away.

The on-road cycle lanes continue right through the roundabout, but only for the route along the main road.

End of short path from toucan crossing (see #31494). Residential road links to further section of cycle path (see #31496).
