When this store was a Somerfield there were proper Sheffield stands in the corner of the car park (visible on old Google Streetview images), but these have now been removed.

101291Photo #101291The 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 if it were ever to become popular. But it isn't.Cycleway:

97823Photo #97823I 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 "distraction to drivers" or something.Cycleway:

93302Photo #93302The 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 seem extremely willing to stop on the crossing, repeatedly blocking it. No enforcement noted.

93301Photo #93301The ramp from the cycle bridge over the Raith Interchange roundabout comes down in the No Man's Land between two dual carriageways, rather than on the side where Bothwell is. Users therefore have to cross four carriageways using toucan crossings to get to the town.Cycleway:
