Parking at the primary school makes the road dangerous. People parking on the pavement and blocking the road makes it dangerous to walk, wheel or cycle to school

Parents dopping off children at St Charles Primary is really dangerous. No safe space for walking, wheeling or cycling because of selfish parents parking on the pavements and blocking the road

Cycle path on Kings Park Avenue would be a strategic asset. It would be of great benefit.

There is no provision for cyclists to get from the town centre to the cycle path apart riding a busy 2 lane road or on the pavement.

There is a decent cycleway here (part of the N74 route), however there is a constant problem with overhanging branches which forces cyclists to dismount or to move onto the busy A72 to avoid them.

There are plans / consultations to make this a dual carriageway. On the fly through there was no segregated cycle lane, existing pedestrian crossings have been removed cutting off the heritage park to pedestrians. Road improvements would be ... [more]

A Narrow footpath that has been converted to shard use path (I assume, no one would design one so narrow, surely?). There is enough of a hard shoulder on the slip road to widen the footpath in this location

Toucan crossing takes too long to stop traffic - many many people just run across the road nearer the roundabout to avoid having to walk up to the crossing point and wait for ages.

Cyclists forced to use busy and fast dual carriageway as shared path ends at the roundabout. Hatched areas mean there is room for a dedicated cycle path here. It is also uphill, so even more dangerous for cyclists to share with 50mph + moto ... [more]

No toucan crossing even though it is on a shared use path. Lights often take a long time to stop the motor traffic

Speeding fast flowing traffic

The path from Logie Park splits to form a triangular junction with the East Kilbride railway path. Left for the town centre, right for towards Kingsgate.

The path to Logie Park heads to the right, but there is a desire line over the mound straight ahead to get to the railway path. See also #113803 looking from the opposite direction.

Paths connecting from the East Kilbride railway path to Halfmerke Primary School, Logie Park, and Maxwell Drive.

The East Kilbride railway path near Dunblane Drive (to the left) and Halfmerke Primary School (to the right).

The dropped kerb for entering the Whitemoss Avenue underpass from Whitemoss Road has been positioned in an awkward place handier for the steps than the ramp, and is only convenient for coming from the east. There is already a dropped kerb a ... [more]

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.

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.

The start of the cycle track for the Whitemoss Roundabout diverging from the carriageway of Kingsway. It could be extended back along the verge to meet the cycle track from the Birniehill Roundabout.

The Birniehill Roundabout cycle track merges onto the Kingsway carriageway, but there is room for it to continue off-road until the Whitemoss Roundabout where another cycle track starts. Again, tyre tracks in the mud and grass give away the ... [more]

The path seen being widened in #107574, and now officially shared use, alongside Churchill Avenue in East Kilbride.

The accumulating mud on the cycle track at the Righead Roundabout shows that, despite conditions, people are using it. The underpass on the right leads to cycle tracks on the other sides of the roundabout.

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.

The Mossneuk cycle route continues along Pitcairn Crescent to the left, but takes a detour to join the footway of Mossneuk Road first.

Blind bend on shared path as part of NCR 756

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 continues south, but it is not clear how far it extends.

The Redwood Drive cycleway detours to cross Redwood Crescent.

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

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

The Glen Road path, linking Stewartfield Way to actual Glen Road, which leads towards Carmunnock and Glasgow.

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 cycle track from Tantallon Park arrives in Glenluce Terrace, with a street name sign to confirm location for users.

Broken glass on the cycle track between Tantallon Park and Glenluce Terrace.

The underpass beneath Queensway, connecting St Lawrence Park and Falkland Drive. Like many of the old underpasses in East Kilbride, there is a cycleway and separate footway.

No demand for a cycleway alongside Queensway between Righead and The Murray Roundabouts? Pedestrians have their own footway all the way, but cyclists are expected to cycle on the dual carriageway. Evidently, not all do!

Despite there being room for a cycleway alongside Queensway between Righead and The Murray Roundabouts, cyclists are expected to cycle on the dual carriageway. Pedestrians have their own footway all the way.

The cycle track from Queensway to The Murray Roundabout, and parallel footway.

The start of the cycle track approaching the Birniehill Roundabout, and the newer path put in for East Kilbride cycle route 2, coming from Mount Cameron Drive North.

Room for the cycle track at Whitemoss Roundabout to continue alongside the dual carriageway to reach Birniehill Roundabout, but instead, the cycle track merges with the A725 Kingsway carriageway. The footway to the left continues roughly ... [more]

Broken glass in the underpass at Whitemoss Roundabout. The only one of the town centre underpasses I found in such a state.

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

The excellent footbridge across Kingsway, connecting Kelso Drive and Burns Park. A few more of these wouldn't go amiss!

I'm not sure whether this kerb is dropped or not, but the path leads to the ramped footbridge across Kingsway to Burns Park.

A path signed as a cycle access to NCN756, but could do with being a little bit wider. The road at the top, Logie Park, is one way, but there is no sign to tell cyclists this.

The older path connects Highfield Place and The Gateway, while the newer path connects across to NCN756 on the railway path. No signage, but as NCN756 also joins The Gateway, it can be reached by either route for those heading north.

One of East Kilbride's old cycleway and footway combinations, through the underpass connecting Highfield Place and The Gateway.

The railway path into East Kilbride, part of NCN756.

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 shared footway continues along East Mains Road, to meet up with NCN756.

The narrow shared footway at the Whirlies Roundabout.

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.

An update on #28413, taken from the opposite direction.

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.

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

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 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 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.

The cycle track along Queensway, between Birniehill and The Murray roundabouts.

An underpass at the Birniehill Roundabout.

East Kilbride's cycle route 3 continues alongside the A726 to the Calderglen Country Park overflow car park.

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

The cycleway merges into the bus stop layby, but the layout could easily be revised within the available space.

Before route 3's path was built, cyclists were expected to return to the carriageway once past the roundabout.

Someone needs to set up a website 'Rate My Asphalting'.

No signage at this major path junction in St Leonards. The only clue as to which way East Kilbride cycle route 2 goes is the widened path.

East Kilbride cycle route 2 at the High Commons Road underpass.

East Kilbride cycle route 2 follows the asphalt path.

Follow the asphalt path for East Kilbride cycle route 2.

Pavement-hopping at Brancumhall Road.

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

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.
