The Seven Lochs Trail turns from the A752 into Drumpellier Country Park. The signs here make no mention of the Seven Lochs Trail. There is a dropped kerb here, but it is partly blocked by a mangled railing installed across it.

The footway of the A752 was supposed to be upgraded to be part of NCN route 755 south of Gartcosh, but this has still to happen. However, it is now part of the Seven Lochs Trail and still has obstructions like this boundary sign post.

A signpost within Palacerigg Country Park, but no mention of Cumbernauld's cycle route 2a to Abronhill which starts around here.

A Cumbernauld Cycle Network map outside Greenfaulds railway station.

A map of the Cumbernauld Cycle Network at the Palacerigg Country Park, right outside the visitors' centre.

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.

Give Way at Strathclyde Business Park.

The path to Strathclyde Business Park. See the comments at #99651 concerning the bridge ahead.

The path alongside this section of the A725. It ends at Strathclyde Business Park. Why not continue on to Strathclyde Country Park?

Motorway regulations apply henceforth. A bit bigger than the equivalent cycle route confirmation sign.

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]

More signs. They would make more sense facing the other way, come to think of it.

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

The M8 cyclepath crossing NCN75 and the A752 at grade. Signage this way for NCN75 but not straight ahead to Glasgow.

The M8 cyclepath crosses the busy A752 road and A8 sliproad at grade. Why only a flyover for motorists? And no directions facing this way for NCN75 other than a Sustrans sticker.

Why is the route sign so far away from the junction?

How can anyone trust signage like this? See further comments at #70290.

Little difference from my last visit at #70285.

According to my map from the council, Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 does not go up this busy road. I checked at the Balloch Roundabout and there were no further signs.

The Corduroy Heritage Path goes through the Croy station car park. More information at http://www.heritagepaths.co.uk/pathdetails.php?path=64

Route signs outside Croy station. Not facing those exiting the station via either exit. 'Town Centre' refers to Cumbernauld.

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.

A route sign pointing in an ambiguous direction, and no clue as to how one should rejoin the carriageway. All of the crossings are for pedestrians only. The shared-use footway does continue around the corner to the left into Kirkshaws Road.

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.

Two of these signs are pointing in the wrong direction. With non-logical routes involving multiple turns for destinations served by direct roads, it's important that signs can't be turned around. The signs on the M8 motorway in the backgrou ... [more]

Town Centre or Carlisle? I'd have thought Airdrie would have been a more relevant potential destination than Carlisle.

@andy_fab @BritishSigns @ShowMeASignBlog Today's position. At least the Coatbridge sign (hidden) is now pointing the right way [The others are pointing the wrong way. Strathclyde Business Park also needs added to the Uddingston sign, which ... [more]

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]

"Use Footway Opposite" - not directed at anyone in particular.

Sign for routes 1e and 1f pointing the wrong way. Signs for route 1 are only visible to those already on this route and not to those arriving on routes 1e and 1f. Route 1 is routed via the ramp between the bridge and Cumbernauld station, ... [more]

I never noticed on my last visit that Route 1 goes straight on here (note sign in #80515 just visible at top of steps), and not via the Carbrain Gully route. The steps have a ramp around them to the side.

Back onto the path, but first, which car do I risk accidentally scratching? No dropped kerb and no thought as to how this space is actually used.

Because going straight ahead would be too difficult. See #80303 for what happens next.

The second sign on route 2, starting from #80246 at Abronhill. I had to search for this one.

The point in Abronhill where routes 2 and 3 of the Cumbernauld Cycle Network meet. Except route 2 goes through the health centre car park, and route 2a goes to Palacerigg Country Park, not the station.

Lamppost partially blocking dropped kerb forming part of cycle route whose signs are fixed to said lamppost.

You have to be alert to avoid the steps (left foreground) and find the ramp (right), whilst looking out for signs. Cycling not built into Abronhill, but added as a cheap afterthought.

Spot the sign for route 3. (It's next to the underpass entrance).

Completely random signs at path junction. The path to the left goes to Wardpark Industrial Estate, not the town centre or Ravenswood, and is not part of the Cumbernauld Cycle Network. The path forking right does lead to Abronhill, but is ro ... [more]

Confusing signage at path junction. Does 'fork left' mean take the path to the left, or go straight across the junction? (It's the latter). Photo #80234 shows a close up view of the sign in the background.

Triangular junction with minimal but clear signage, assuming you know where the routes go to.

Signs for route 3a facing the wrong way at path T-junction. It's also unclear who the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign is aimed at. All directions?

The sign for route 3 should be facing people coming off the bridge over Wilderness Brae.

A barrier across the short path linking to Portland Road. The sign does not look particularly good, and could poke someone's eye out at that height!

Single-sided signs for route 1a on the footway at Carrickstone. Is nobody going to join the route here? And confusion for anyone following Cumbernauld's multicoloured arrow waymarker posts.

A couple of urban bollards looking out of place at this woodland path junction.

The route to Dullatur leaves the path alongside the railway line.

Another ambiguous route sign, and if it wasn't for the 'End of Route' sign being visible at the top of the ramp, it would appear the route continued through the car park.

An ambiguous route sign that doesn't make it clear whether route 1 is up the hill or through the car park.

The route of the Cumbernauld Cycle Network's route 1 through Croy is on-road, but goes off-road to get to Auchinstarry, crossing the Antonine Wall.

Broken sign for as yet unbuilt road (see #79938) at Calderwood Village development.

Incorrect signage on shared footway at Calderwood Village development, and top surface missing. The direction sign for Chapelhall and Airdrie in the background is somewhat premature!

An 'End of Cycle Route' sign on the shared use footway at Calderwood Village development.

Incorrect shared footway signage at Calderwood Village development.

Incorrect route sign at junction between Cumbernauld cycle routes 1e and 1f. 1e goes to Condorrat East to the right, 1f to Condorrat West (and Dalshannon) to the left.

Welcome to Cumbernauld! Some of the route signs have been twisted round a bit, so it is not obvious which route they point to at the crossroads of paths. Routes 1a and 1b are signed from here, but do not reappear on the signs until they bra ... [more]

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]

Route signs for route 1 up the hill to Palacerigg Country Park.

The route sign for the turn into Kelvin Road North is positioned on the far side of the triangular junction, so cannot be seen properly until it is too late to turn. It also says Cumbernauld Station is 1 3/4 miles away, when it is nearer 1/ ... [more]

Route 2 in Kildrum.

Route 2 in Kildrum.

The junction of routes 2 and 3a.

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

Route 2 forks left here, not right.

Route signs all pointing 90 degrees away from the correct direction for each.

Damaged route sign pointing slightly downwards in Cumbernauld town centre. [In this photo https://flic.kr/p/oUftnt the signs point in different directions.]

Steep slope out of underpass beneath Greenfaulds Road.

Route sign hidden in tree.

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.

This seems to be the junction between Cumbernauld's cycle routes 2 and 3. Destinations for route 3, but not for route 2, and double-sided signs for both at T-junction.

By 'fork left' do they mean turn left and cross under the dual carriageway only to cross back at #70418, or go straight ahead?

The junction signs for Cumbernauld's cycle routes 2 and 1e, with 1e seen going straight ahead.

The junction of Cumbernauld's cycle routes 2 and 1e, and these signs do have destinations. The sign for the turn where route 2 goes across the A73 footbridge can be seen in the distance.

Route signs on the far side of the junction, not really visible on the approach when turning decision needs to be made on a main road. The sign for route 4 is only visible for someone coming from the Condorrat Ring Road, not from Mollins ... [more]

The path around the stadium to the leisure centre and tennis courts.

Cumbernauld's cycle route 1 turns right here, at Cumbernauld railway station. No destination named for either direction. The roadway is one way.

Signage for Cumbernauld's cycle route 1, and walking information for the town centre.

Route signs for Cumbernauld cycle routes 2, 2a and 2c.

Route signs for Cumbernauld cycle routes 2, 2a and 2c, but no mention of the right fork.

Signs for Cumbernauld's cycle route 2. I'm not sure which way they are meant to be facing.

Croy 1 mile, Rome 1555 miles. A sign in Cumbernauld Community Park.

Route sign at Calderbank

Path from Chapelhall. The path is actually surfaced around the end of the barrier!

NCN75 turns left, but should cyclists use the A73's busy carriageway or cross over to the footway? See also #51043.

Path junction at bridge over North Calder Water

NCN 75 turns right here, but single-sided sign cannot be read from either direction if approaching on NCN 75.

"Danger - Slow Down - Path surface uneven and broken" sign on Luggie Glen path, the old route of NCN75, referring to subsidence such as at #43945 and #43947

"Danger - Slow Down - Path surface uneven and broken" sign on Luggie Glen path, the old route of NCN75, referring to subsidence such as at #43945 and #43947
