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.

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

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

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.

The cycle route along the Whitemoss Avenue shared footway is signed into the park, including a rather steep bit of path at the corner (seen also in #107580).

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

The Mossneuk cycle route crossing Mossneuk Road.

The Mossneuk cycle route leaves Pitcairn Place to cross to the other side of Mossneuk Road just along from the bus stop.

Still no dropped kerb on Strathtay Avenue at the start of the Mossneuk cycle route.

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

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.

Give way to a dismantled bus stop?

The cycle route into East Kilbride follows Queensway.

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.

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.

Huge 'No Cycling' and 'No Pedestrians' signs next to the Redwood Drive shared footway. What is actually meant is that the Glasgow Southern Orbital road beyond the junction is restricted.

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.

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

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

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

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 path connecting Whitemoss Recreation Ground to the cycle facilities at Whitemoss Roundabout.

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.

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]

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 shared footway leading to Kingsway.

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.

The start of a very narrow shared-use footway on Stoneymeadow Road. The dropped kerb is just beyond the map sign.

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

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.

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]

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?

Are U-turns a problem here? U-turns prohibited on a road with frequent roundabouts. There isn't room to perform a U-turn on the shared footway on Stewartfield Way.

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 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.

A path junction in Stewartfield.

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.

The cycle route to Stewartfield at Strathfillan Road.

The cycle route to Stewartfield along West Mains Road, opposite St Kenneth's Primary School, hence the part-time 20mph limit.

The cycle route to Stewartfield passing Kirtonholme Recreation Area.

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

Pavement-hopping at Brancumhall Road.

A path connecting Galloway Road to Brancumhall Road.

A dropped kerb in Tannahill Drive blocked by car parking, where the cycle route to Brancumhall joins the carriageway.

A dropped kerb on Alison Lea blocked by car parking.

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

Footway parking partially on the shared footway outside the Alison Lea Medical Centre. Google Streetview shows a greater degree of obstruction in its image.

The end of the Calderwood Road section of the cycle route to Brancumhall, and some footway parking outside the Alison Lea Medical Centre.

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.

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.

The Calderwood Road shared footway passing a bus stop at the sports centre.

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.

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]

A path being widened at Whitemoss Roundabout.

The shared-use footway alongside one side of the busy Whitemoss Avenue.

The Whitehills cycle path.

The Whitehills cycle path, at this point no wider than most other main paths in East Kilbride.

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.

There are a lot of construction markings on the eastern side at Happendon Services. Will the cycle route actually benefit from an upgraded facility or will there just be sliproads to cross?

The cycle route through and beyond the motorway junction is a shared footway. There is a lot of dirt from the carriageway affecting the cycleway.

Compared to the shared footway on other side of the road, the end of the purpose built cycleway looks over-engineered. It could also do with a sweep.

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]

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.

The path linking Bothwell and the Raith Interchange shared-use paths still looks like a building site, despite the motorway junction having been open for several months.
