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]

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 Blantyre to East Kilbride cycle route crosses Kingsway here.

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

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.

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

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.

A new toucan crossing replacing a footbridge with stepped ramps over West Mains Road. But nowhere obvious to cycle on the far side of the crossing.

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.

Toucan crossing across Murray Road at Whitehills Terrace.

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.

A toucan crossing across the dual carriageway connects Bothwell to the Raith Interchange walking and cycling provision. As it forms part of the junction traffic signal system, one side of motor traffic is stopped before the other.

The path from the Raith Interchange continues alongside the dual carriageway to Bothwell Bridge. There is literally nothing on this side of the road. A toucan crossing is provided for getting across to Bothwell.

The end of the ramp from the Raith Interchange roundabout cycle bridge (see #93301) ends at the A725 sliproad. There are then some right-angled corners to turn at and toucan crossings to cross to get to Bothwell. Queuing drivers also see ... [more]

The toucan crossing boxes at Rodger Drive have a restricted angle of view (see also #90573), but boxes across the road can been seen when this one is still dark.

The toucan crossing boxes at Rodger Drive have a restricted angle of view (see also #90574).

The Mill Street footway has a single toucan crossing at the Rodger Drive junction, outside Overtoun Park. NCN756 is present within the park.

The Mill Street footway has toucan crossings at the King's Park Avenue junction.

The Cathkin Relief Road's cyclepath looks more and more like an ordinary footway the further north it gets. But still has markings to remind users. No shared-use signage anywhere.

The cycle path alongside the Cathkin Relief Road, and a toucan crossing leading to a path to Fernhill.

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).

The toucan crossing across the A724 links route (74) and the ASDA supermarket.

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.

Motoring convenience prioritised over walking and cycling at minor Chapel St junction.

The Chapel St crossing has a 'Cyclists Dismount' sign, even though it has toucan crossing like most of the other crossings. Not much thought has gone into aligning this junction for walking and cycling.

Another toucan crossing on the cycle route along Leechlee Road.

A model horse in the middle of the Brandon St/Leechlee Road junction, which appears to have been dumped on some kind of mosaic, plus another toucan crossing.

The first sign of a cycle route in Hamilton town centre - a toucan crossing across Brandon Street.

Primary school children are expected to cycle along the A724 with only painted cycle lanes for "protection" on route (74).

NCN74 signs mix with (74) signs. NCN74 and the route signed as (74) both ways cross the A724 here, then take different routes to Hamilton. Surely it would be better to give (74) a proper route number like NCN741?

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]

A busy shared-use footway outside Cambuslang station.

The toucan crossing call point post is completely obstructing the cycle side of the footway. If a post was put in a motorway lane like this, it would be flattened by someone driving into it.

The toucan crossing signal boxes are positioned so they face away from approaching users.

Toucan crossing call point post in the way of the cycle lane. Clearly the designer isn't interested in providing a useable facility, just tick-boxing.

A very tight turn around the call point post to get into the cycle lane.

The designer of this has obviously been watching too many Danny MacAskill videos! Footway/cycleway crossing M74 off-ramp.

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 route sign here says NCN74 turns left down Bridge Street, but there is another sign further down Bridge Street that refers to route (74) meaning that the road leads to route 74 and isn't itself route 74. There are other signs for 74 fur ... [more]

The instruction is clear that the route transfers from the footway to the carriageway at the junction ahead, but drivers are driving their vehicles like the cycle lane beyond the junction isn't there.

Split toucan crossing across Bothwell Road, part of NCN74.

One of the better pieces of cycle infrastructure in Hamilton, the toucan crossing across High Blantyre Road on Glenlee Street.

No Entry signs at road closure, without "except cycles" plates, but route signage between Hamilton town centre and NCN 74 directs cyclists through closure and across toucan crossing

Toucan crossing on route across main road. Path extends a considerable way across town (but see #31493).

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.
