The cycleway between Eurocentral and Shawhead is open at last!

The footway of McNeil Drive at Eurocentral has now been upgraded to shared use. However, there were no signs on the wide footways around the B799 Bo'ness Road roundabouts at the adjacent motorway junction which, according to the M8/A8 upgra ... [more]

A fairly smooth unbounded track through the forestry at Dunsyston, avoiding a busier road through Gartness on the way to Chapelhall. But could equally go on towards Salsburgh.

A rough, stony track across a former opencast mining site, with a bit of a climb towards the end, but more direct than the road around the site.

An assortment of barriers at the entrance to Stanrigg Memorial Park, so just as well the gate had been left open!

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

The alternative to #102065.

Car parking at the entrance to the Monkland Canal towpath. One more and access to the kissing gate (beyond car) becomes very tricky.

Road crossing at Paddock Street on the alignment of the Monkland Canal.

A single uncontrolled sliproad crossing with 'Cyclists Dismount' signs (see #51057) has been replaced with two uncontrolled sliproad crossings, without signs. No attempt to line up the footway with the crossings.

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

A split toucan crossing on Townhead Avenue, Eurocentral, with an HGV combo stopped some way forward of the stopline on the far side.

A split toucan crossing across Townhead Avenue at Eurocentral. I don't know which direction the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign applies to. The kid on the bike took no notice of it.

The M8 cycle path approaching Eurocentral.

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 path from Eurocentral to Shawhead alongside the A8 dual carriageway. Closed ahead, see #99666.

The path from Eurocentral to Shawhead alongside the A8 dual carriageway. Closed ahead.

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.

A 15mph limit on Carnbroe Road beyond the edge of Bellshill.

The end of the path from Clay Road at the Clay Crescent bus turning circle. All this could be upgraded to improve active travel permeability within Shirrel.

I don't see any reason why Clay Road shouldn't be upgraded to make an all-weather path serving the Shirrel area of Bellshill.

Clay Road forks to the right, forming a sort of active travel spine through the estate.

Pinch-point traffic-calming on North Road, Bellshill. The dropped kerbs don't appear to have been thought through to create a half decent crossing for pedestrians.

A shared-use sign on Kirkshaws Road. I did check and there was no evidence as to whether the shared-use footway continued further or where it might end.

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.

Bridges across the massive Shawhead road junction.

If you are coming from Bellshill, this is the first sign to say this footway is shared-use.

Directions along the route from Strathclyde Business Park we are then told is a 'No Through Road' in #99868.

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]

A passing place on the farm access road and M8 cycle route in the Douglas Support Estate.

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

The farm access road turns south towards the Douglas Support estate woods. A triangular junction with the road to Shawhead Farm.

The farm access road and cycle route adjacent to the M8 motorway.

The farm access road alongside the new M8 motorway continues as a single track road.

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.

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 reverse view of #99830 shows this access road leads only to this piece of land. The route ahead becomes a cyclepath.

The cyclepath becomes a farm access road again. I doubt there's much traffic to give way to (see #99831).

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

Give Way. Just do it!

A downhill section on the farm access road and cycle route adjacent to the new M8 motorway. The Showcase foot and cycle bridge can be seen in the distance.

Farm access road and cycle route alongside the new M8 motorway.

A rough track from Cardowan to Cardowan Moss.

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

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

A paint mark possibly for some sort of forthcoming work on the path through the Luggiebank Wood Wildlife Reserve.

A path junction in the Greenfaulds area of Cumbernauld.

The path past Woodlands Primary School in Greenfaulds.

Paths in Greenfaulds.

Cycle lanes on Greenfaulds Road, and the typical junction layout in many parts of Cumbernauld.

A rough transition to the road at Kirk Place, but a barrier to ensure you don't accidentally cycle down the steps.

Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 crosses the B8048 here, then crosses the side road to get to the path to Craiglinn Interchange.

Route 4 from Craiglinn joins the path to the B8048. I don't know which kerb I prefer to bump!

According to my map from the council, the Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 turns left here then first right, rather than using the (rather ugly) caged crossing and the direct path to Craiglinn. But no signs.

No signs to say this is a shared-use footway, but according to my map from the council, this is where Cumbernauld Cycle Network routes 4 and 4a are to be found. The roundabout appears to be built on a different plane from the rest of the ... [more]

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

Cycle parking at Croy station, protected by high containment kerbs and bollards.

Cycle parking at Croy station.

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

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.

The cycleway in Strathclyde Country Park, but this gets extremely busy with pedestrians on sunny days.

No cycling or walking in the new Raith Interchange underpass. Or at least I think that is what it is meant to mean. The shared footway hasn't been completed yet.

No obstruction for pedestrians going to the nearside footway on Mary Rae Road, but I want to cycle to the footway on the far side of the road and link to the (future) shared-use footway to Raith Interchange.

Less of a barrier than at other locations on the Greenlink path.

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

The western branch of the path from Holytown to Eurocentral.

The path from Holytown to Eurocentral would be even better if the lampposts had been placed outside the width of the path. As it is they create an unnecessary narrowing at each post.

The path from Holytown to Eurocentral.

The start of the path from Holytown to Eurocentral, at the sports centre car park. I don't know what the bollard is supposed to achieve.

The cycle route from Holytown station slowly but surely edging nearer to Eurocentral.

"Give Cycle Space" - in this case the cycle space is through the Scotmid car park.

The shared use footway in Holytown just can't keep the same alignment for very long.

The Holytown shared footway crossing Windsor Road.

Shared footway in Holytown.

Shared footway in Holytown.

A new entrance ramp to Holytown station from Holm St, but since the footbridge still has steps, only useful for getting to the westbound platform. The eastbound platform has level access, but the nearest step-free crossing of the railway li ... [more]

The start of the cycle route from Holytown station to Eurocentral.

The road environment in Quarry St. Scope for extending the off-road provision in Holytown to the A723, and to join up with the Ravenscraig route.

The roundabout between Loanhead Road and Glenmore Road has underpasses beneath it, as if it was planned to be part of some larger road scheme.

An underpass at the Glenmore Road/Loanhead Road roundabout, seen from the centre. Every other roundabout in the area seems to have some fancy design in the centre, but this one, where people can actually access the space in the centre, is j ... [more]
