107593Photo #107593The 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.Cycleway:

107591Photo #107591Signs 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 town centre (see #107429), but there's a cycle route from here to the Alison Lea Medical Centre off to the right, and the distance appears to be about right.Route sign:

107587Photo #107587The 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 footway.Obstruction:

107586Photo #107586The 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 the carriageway after the roundabout. This cycle track is missing its 'Cycles Only' sign.Cycleway:
