65163Photo #65163An off-centre bollard at the end of the path between May Gardens and May Street, but then the cycle route is routed along the footway of May Street cul-de-sac, rather than going onto the carriageway. Needless to say someone has parked a car across the dropped kerb intended for cyclists joining the footway.Cycleway:

65157Photo #65157Plenty of roadspace, but clearly this footway has not been widened when it was "converted" to a shared-use foot and cycleway.

There's no dropped kerb for cyclists to rejoin the carriageway if they are not turning left into Yews Crescent.

65153Photo #65153After crossing Glasgow Road, the cycle route goes down another narrow path, with another black-painted barrier. Since there is another barrier between the path and the road, why is the second barrier necessary?

However, it would be better if the cycle route missed out Donaldson St completely and a new cycle track was formed heading right (from the photo) alongside Glasgow Road to join the Burnbank precinct directly next to the big A724/B7012 junction.

65152Photo #65152Barriers across the path next to the unsignalised Glasgow Road crossing.

Cyclists following the signed route cross and don't actually rejoin the carriageway.

The distance of 3 miles to Hamilton is only slightly less than on a sign in Blantyre - #89452.

65151Photo #65151The cycle route is via a narrow path to an unsignalised crossing of the A724, then along the footway to use another narrow path, before heading around the rear of the tower block, all because the powers that be won't tackle the real issue of the big A724/B7012 junction nearby.

However, if this path was widened, a signalised crossing installed across Glasgow Road, and a cycle track installed alongside Glasgow Road directly to the Burnbank precinct, this route could be so much better!

No dropped kerb to rejoin carriageway, and no signage for those unfamiliar with the area to get to Whistleberry Road.
The road on the left is a sliproad onto the A725 East Kilbride Expressway. The eventual plan is to continue the path alongside it, building a ramp to replace the existing flight of stairs, but for now cyclists have to use the road under the bridge and around the other side of the expressway to reach the rest of NCN 74.
