A path with a decent surface linking Greengairs to Wattston and Stanrigg Memorial Park.

The cycleway between Eurocentral and Shawhead is open at last!

Extremely poor finishing at the expansion joint at the north end of the Eurocentral bridge over the M8 motorway.

The remains of the buffer strip (see also #51059) separating the shared-use footway from the carriageway can just be seen.

The cyclepath, A8 dual carriageway and M8 motorway approaching Eurocentral. I'm sure it would have been possible to design a more economical A8 road layout at this point. The road to the right is a field/land access with next to no traff ... [more]

The cyclepath and westbound A8 cross the M8 motorway.

The Carnbroe foot and cycle bridge over the A8 dual carriageway. Why no direction sign? I know where it leads to, but that's not the point.

The view from the bridge over the M8 motorway on Carnbroe Road, looking towards Coatbridge.

Carnbroe Road approaching the bridge over the new M8 motorway.

This had better be an important sign to be positioned so close to the cyclepath.

I'm not sure what the best way to Uddingston from here would be, but the path on the left leads as far as Strathclyde Business Park. You'd have to find your own way from there. If you were approaching from this direction, you'd have been ... [more]

An expensive farm access road over the M8 motorway to Shawhead Farm.

The farm access road alongside the new M8 motorway has a direct connection to the 'all purpose' A8 dual carriageway, which, as the sign says, is unsuitable for pedestrians and cyclists.

The foot and cycle bridge over the M8 motorway and A8 dual carriageway to the Showcase Cinema and Kirkwood, but why the gate?

A sign for the footbridge over the M8 motorway and A8 dual carriageway to the Showcase Cinema and Kirkwood.

Some path damage due to construction traffic on the new cyclepath adjacent to the M8 motorway approaching the A752 crossing.

Accessible footbridge over Greenfaulds Road.

Steps link the Cumbernauld Cycle Network to Chapelton Road and the rugby club.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign at a useful footbridge over the M80 motorway.

I was reading the other day that David Hembrow likes cycle paths constructed out of concrete for their smoothness. He won't like this one however, because even without all the stones and muck it is still extremely bumpy! The shared footw ... [more]

If you can't read the sign next to the bridge, and don't know which side of this barrier to pass, no worries - it's pointing the wrong way anyway! See also #97669 and #99654.

The shared-use footway alongside the A725 into Coatbridge, with some users.

The shared-use path shares the bridge over the A8 dual carriageway with the A725.

Signs at the junction of bridges over the massive Shawhead road junction. You'll know where you're going if coming from Eurocentral? The route to/from Eurocentral is shut just now in any case, with no signed diversion.

Bridges across the massive Shawhead road junction.

No access to the bridge over the A725 coming from the south, although there is plenty of room for a ramp.

Unlike all the other bridges nearby, this bridge over the North Calder Water has a bumpy transition at each end, which since it is on a downhill section towards Strathclyde Business Park could cause someone to lose control of their bike if ... [more]

The path through the Luggiebank Wood Wildlife Reserve passes under Stirling Road.

A couple more barriers across the canal towpath.

A couple of barriers across the canal towpath.

No option for taking a shortcut down the embankment. Pedestrians have to walk this unnecessary distance too!

So tell me again why there isn't a ramp from the far side of this bridge directly towards Strathclyde Country Park to the right?

The most indirect route possible has been chosen for the cycle route between Bothwell and Strathclyde Country Park through the Raith Interchange.

The new bridge over the A8 and M8 for Bredisholm Road is still not quite ready! Note that the sign on the left says it's a No Through Road, but the sign on the right gives destinations reachable via this road. Highly illogical! But no me ... [more]

A new cycle bridge across the Raith Interchange roundabout, but you have to go under it and a distance up the road towards Bellshill because there isn't a ramp coming from Strathclyde Country Park.

Stepped footbridge over railway line. The nearest alternative is the A723.

Across the Clyde Bridge.

Not the prettiest, but a viable way through from Russell St to Mossend Primary School.

The replacement Bredisholm Road farm road access bridge across the A8 and M8 motorway was originally meant to be ready to reopen in July 2016, but looks like there is still quite a bit of work to do if it is to meet the revised target of Ma ... [more]

The cycleway crosses the A8 sliproad on an uncontrolled crossing to the right of the mini-roundabout. When I crossed, a driver stopped to wave me across when I suddenly appeared from behind a van. I get that there are roadworks going on, ... [more]

Routes 1e and 1f under the Janes Brae flyover.

Cycle parking at Greenfaulds station, right next to the Cumbernauld Cycle Network's routes 1e and 1f.

Route 1 sign in Carbrain, at end of new street.

Looking from the Vault Glen bridge towards Kildrum. The bridge is double width.

The Vault Glen path, looking from the Abronhill side towards the railway bridge.

No dropped kerbs on road crossing (marked with road studs) at exit from West Park.

Once across the footbridge from the car park, it's back onto the Cumbernauld path network, but this sign seems a bit confused. According to the council map I have, route 1 to Croy and route 3 to Ravenswood is left, route 3 to Cumbernauld Gl ... [more]

The lift at the end of the Linkbridge over Central Way. Not a convenient route for a group ride!

The cycle route goes into a lift to get up to the Linkbridge across Central Way.

Grade-separated paths!

Route sign for cycle route 1 directing cyclists down the complex ramp at the railway station (which has 'Cyclists Dismount' signs here and at #67691), and the starting sign for routes 1e and 1f. It may be better to start the route outside t ... [more]

Sign for cycle route 1 at the new bridge over the railway. The path on the right goes to one of the platforms at Cumbernauld Station.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign on Cumbernauld's cycle route 2 at a railway bridge, matching the similar sign in #67680 for the opposite direction.

Route 2 crosses the main carriageway of Lye Brae on a footbridge, but goes under a sliproad. The footbridge has both a ramp and steps at this end (level with ground at other end). [The concrete sculpture next to the steps can be seen to ... [more]

Route 2 passes beneath Lye Brae sliproad, then over the main carriageway.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign at the Jane's Brae footbridge.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign at the footbridge over Jane's Brae.

Sign says route 2 forks right here. Now possibly it means cross the footbridge and back through the underpass in #70416, but forking left leads there directly.

New bridge for Strathkelvin Railway Path over M80 motorway, but path is not straight.

A nice smooth curve in the junction at the end of the footbridge, but no signs for cycle route 2. [It goes straight ahead, to #70616.]

A useful shortcut to Airdrie town centre, with just Graham Street to brave!

New bridge across North Calder Water at Calderbank

Path junction at bridge over North Calder Water

Bridge over Luggie Water on the Luggie Glen path

There's nothing to say old route of NCN 75 is on footway, so must assume it is on the road under narrow railway bridge. (See also #43939 and #43940)

NCN 75 path alongside filled-in Monkland Canal, with basketball net under railway bridge! See #43847 for view in opposite direction.

Cyclists Dismount sign at Blairhill Street bridge over NCN 75 path in Coatbridge, with poor surface under bridge
