A new roundabout at Mavor Avenue/Avon Drive. It wasn't clear where the cycle route went.

Glebe Street and other back streets in East Kilbride Village.

The cycle track leaves the Queensway carriageway in time for the Righead Roundabout. There is plenty of room for it to have been off-road all the way along here.

The Queensway footway resumes at Falkland Drive.

A ramped footbridge to cross Westwood Road and access Westwood Square shops.


The ford at Hole. Although the water is still high, it is no longer overflowing onto the roadway.

Barbana Road runs parallel to Redwood Drive, and serves an office development, as well as playing host to the cycle route between Eaglesham, Thorntonhall and East Kilbride.

The Redwood Drive shared footway crosses Redwood Crescent next to the roundabout.

Toucan crossing across Stewartfield Way, primarily for the Stewartfield Way cycle route, but also useful for the Glen Road path (straight ahead).

This track runs parallel to Kingsway and leads through to the Whitemoss Recreation Area and roundabout. A through route for cycling, but not driving.

Burns Park ends in the Maxwellton Conservation Area.

The Burns Park end of the footbridge across Kingsway.

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.

An "improved" roundabout at Stroud Road and Kelvin Road. Not improved for cycling, as far as I can see.

Blacklaw Drive, and footbridge. Again, no signage for East Kilbride cycle route 2 at the junction ahead.

A path across the Blacklaw Drive roundabout and into the Tesco supermarket. There are no signs for East Kilbride cycle route 2 at this roundabout. However, the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign has vanished too.

Brancumhall Road looking towards St Leonards Road, and to the right a path to an underpass.

A path connecting Galloway Road to Brancumhall Road.

The shared-use footway alongside one side of the busy Whitemoss Avenue.

No evidence that this section of footway on Whitemoss Avenue is a cycleway. It's also rather busy and cluttered.

Car park entrance on Rothesay Street. Also leads to the cycle parking at #107435.

The exit from Headhouse Greenway at Telford Road. Pass between the columns to get to the Queensway underpass directly to the shopping centre.

The path from Murray Road joins Baird Hill, but without a dropped kerb.

Car park road crossing and ramp to underpass at Greenhills shops.

Having thought you were now in the countryside, housing in Lindsayfield appears on the left.

Actual countryside, just around the bend from #107482.

The end of the housing development on the edge of East Kilbride.

Another roundabout on East Kilbride's cycle route 1, this one at Crosshouse Road.

The cycle route through and beyond the motorway junction is a shared footway. There is a lot of dirt from the carriageway affecting the cycleway.

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 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 starts again at Drumilaw Road, and is also the access path for a bus stop.

The Cathkin Relief Road at the Fernhill Road junction, and a view of the soak-away drainage.

Where are all the bussists? Newly built disused bus stops on the Cathkin Relief Road, because the bus company quite sensibly decided it would rather continue running its buses along Fernhill Road. But still no excuse for the lighting col ... [more]

Simple route to crossing on this side, but a mess on the other side (see #90314).

Typical nonsense markings in South Lanarkshire, where it appears cyclists are meant to cross from the footway of Glasgow Road (off to the right) onto the footway in the foreground, then immediately leave it for the on-road cycle lane. No he ... [more]

Another model horse in the middle of a busy junction, but only some arms of the junction have pedestrian crossings. No obvious reason why they aren't toucan crossings with shared-use footways all around. The crossings also seem to be of the ... [more]

The town centre cycle route crosses Cadzow St on Campbell St.

An attempt to improve Campbell Street, but ruined by the bin storage.

An unsignalled crossing of this car park entrance ramp.

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

Earnock St has a path across to Pollock Avenue at the end, which then continues towards Peacock Cross.

Earnock St has pedestrian access to Burnbank Road, but only away from Hamilton town centre. No provision for cycling.

Cycling exempted from road closure at High Blantyre Road crossing at Russell St, and route (74) heads along the footway to the right.

Route (74) switches from the roadway of Ballantrae Road to the footway of Main Street. Lots of road markings.

The end of Bellsfield Drive, open to pedestrians, closed to vehicles. With a little work could be open to bikes too.

The view along Calder Street.

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

Route (74) wiggles its way through the staggered junction at Calder St/Stonefield Road.

I'm not sure how the cycle lane helps anything. The parked cars are more of a hazard than a low traffic sideroad with good sightlines.

Route (74) crossing Cypress Avenue. I guess the 'Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway' sign should be facing the other way.

End of shared footway, start of on-road painted cycle lanes to Cambuslang along the A724.

End of shared footway, start of on-road painted cycle lanes to Cambuslang along the A724.

Traffic filtering at Viewfield Avenue, and paths to either side, although the path southwards starts with a flight of steps.

Nothing special at these bus stops.

The stop-start cycle lane starts again under the parked car at the right of the picture.

Continuous cycle lanes past sideroad and traffic island.

After the bus stop, the cycle lane resumes on the road.

South Lanarkshire Council's interpretation of a bus stop bypass, with no continuous footway so all pedestrians expected to walk via the bus stop island. The bus stop itself is in a layby so buses may get delayed waiting to leave.

The new road layout at Downiebrae Road includes a curious path on the old alignment.

Dalmarnock Bridge - the link between the road to the Cuningar Loop park and NCN75 Clyde Walkway - all fenced in with guardrail. If going on-road, the turn at #87965 does not have a dropped kerb.

Plenty of room to do something offering a little more protection.

Back onto the carriageway for the final section of King Street.

A cycle lane in the middle of the (two-way) road approaching the one-way section of King Street!

Split toucan crossing across Bothwell Road, part of NCN74.

Unconventional road markings for the cycle crossing across the New Douglas Park car park.

Cycle route across the New Douglas Park car park.

Motor traffic on this minor road has a slight chicane, while the signed cycle route turns left through the bollards and along the Burnbank pedestrian precinct.

End of the on-road cycle lanes section of the cycle route into Lanark from Hyndford. Spot the sign telling cyclists to turn right.

The on-road cycle lanes continue right through the roundabout, but only for the route along the main road.

On-road cycle lanes on the Lanark to Hyndford cycle route.

Change of speed limit on Lanark to Hyndford cycle route. The on-road cycle lanes continue to Hyndford village.

The start of the on-road cycle lanes section of the Lanark to Hyndford and Biggar cycle route.

Cycle lane (with wrong type of broken line) across junction mouth, and pavement hopping (see #38907) to get to toucan crossing across main road (see #38909) to avoid roundabout ahead

Cycle lane (with wrong type of broken line) across junction mouth, then pavement hopping (see #38908) to get to toucan crossing across main road (see #38909) to avoid roundabout ahead

Fire path at end of Rockhamton Avenue, with gap for cycles (although not mentioned in signage), on East Kilbride local cycle route 1.

New cycle lanes on Glasgow Road, Shawfield, part of NCN 756 (as far as first junction on left). Cycle lanes stop at junction with main section of Glasgow Road. No waiting restrictions either (photo taken at weekend).

The Murray Roundabout, East Kilbride, showing pedestrian and cycle facilities in the centre, accessed by underpasses. Image created by Billy Smith:

Old railway bridge over road between Blackwood and Stonehouse

The view from Hawthorn Walk. It and Calderwood Road make a good route down into Rutherglen town centre.

NCN 756 approaching toucan crossing across East Kilbride Road

Everybody Give Way tonight!

There's a steep climb coming out of Rutherglen, or a good view going in.
