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.

No cycling or walking on the Glasgow Southern Orbital road.

The Redwood Drive shared footway continues south, but it is not clear how far it extends.

Huge 'No Cycling' and 'No Pedestrians' signs next to the Redwood Drive shared footway. What is actually meant is that the Glasgow Southern Orbital road beyond the junction is restricted.

The Redwood Drive cycleway detours to cross Redwood Crescent.

A split pelican crossing across Redwood Drive, rather than a toucan crossing with extra call buttons, when it forms part of a cycling route. It took a while for the lights to change.

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!

No room for a cycleway alongside Queensway between Righead and The Murray Roundabouts? Pedestrians have their own footway all the way.

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 underpass under Rothesay Street leading to the shopping centre from The Murray Roundabout, and on the right a truncated cycle path removed when the Churchill Avenue road layout was altered to allow easier motoring.

Both East Kilbride cycle routes 2 and 3 turn right after the underpass, but definitely not NCN route 3.

The cycle track from Churchill Avenue carriageway for avoiding The Murray Roundabout being resurfaced. On the right, the newly upgraded shared-use footway that runs the full length of Churchill Avenue.

Roadworks blocking the footway on Queensway, but the workers' van and trailer blocking the cycleway.

East Kilbride cycle routes 2 and 3 turn left here, but only this tiny vandalised sign marks the way.

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

An underpass at the Birniehill Roundabout.

Not a cycleway, just a footway alongside High Common Road, passing under Strathaven Road, with South Lanarkshire College in the background.

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

A decrepit shared footway approaching the uncontrolled crossing across the High Common Road sliproad from Strathaven Road. Room for improvement.

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.

East Kilbride cycle routes 2 and 3 come out of the underpass and split to proceed in opposite directions. So I'd expect better signage than this!

The only underpass I saw in East Kilbride with a height restriction sign. Leads to the shopping centre (with some cycle parking at #107433).

Signs for the inbound version of East Kilbride's cycle route 1, which ends up on Cornwall Street before the turn into Blacklands Road.

Pedestrian signage at the Righead Roundabout, and over next to the underpass, an outbound sign for East Kilbride's cycle route 1.

The path to the underpasses at the Righead Roundabout. The path ahead joins with Queensway (A726). No sign for East Kilbride's cycle route 1 which turns right into the underpass.

The shared-use footway changes sides across the A726 dual carriageway, but the crossing is only a pedestrian crossing and not a toucan crossing.

Painted cycle lane that fades out, and is invaded by motorists.

Faded footway cycle route (which only goes around the corner and into the supermarket) starts without a dropped kerb, and faded on-road cycle lane.

Narrow lanes on Lonend and a sign with the destination of "National Cycle Route (7, 75)"

A piece of cycle lane that has survived.

Huge "No Cycling" sign next to shared-use footway alongside Redwood Drive (see #48424). The sign actually refers to the Glasgow Southern Orbital dual-carriageway beyond the next road junction.

Cycleway and footway merge on East Kilbride local cycle route 3 to cross sliproad.

At the second bus stop in Strathaven Road it is not clear whether you are meant to join the road or use the footway. Why isn't it like the first (see #31514)?

East Kilbride local cycle route 3 runs alongside Strathaven Road, with a parallel and separate footway for most of the way.

East Kilbride local cycle route 3 approaching the Birniehill Roundabout on Strathaven Road.

Several of the roundabouts in East Kilbride town centre have their own cycle and pedestrian roundabouts in the centre of the road roundabout, with access via underpasses and sliproad-style cycle tracks. This is the start of the cycle track ... [more]

End of Cycle Route and Cyclists Dismount signs at end of shared-use footway on Queensway. Quite why the footway on the rest of Queensway is considered any less suitable for shared-use is anybody's guess!
