The HArTT cycle route turns right here, across Icehouse Brae, near the roundabout with the A9. What I didn't notice at the time was the shared-use sign on the grass verge to the right, before the roundabout.

This crossing across the A9 took a while to cross. I wouldn't want this to be my route to and from work.

A poor uncontrolled pedestrian crossing across the M9 on-ramp at the Cadgers Brae Roundabout. A gap in the cycle network between Falkirk and Grangemouth.

The A9 approaching the Cadgers Brae Roundabout. A gap in the cycle network between Falkirk and Grangemouth. A shared-use path commences just after the roundabout.

The HArTT cycle route goes through the underpass beneath the A9 at Beancross.

Yet another 'End of Cycle Route' sign! The HArTT cycle route continues through the underpass beneath the A9 and then on to the Helix park.

The way to avoid the steps at #101523 is to take the A9 road bridge across the railway, and the HArTT cycle route appears to do just that. However, there is no evidence that the narrow footway is legal for shared use, and the provision ... [more]

As with #101515 the railway blocks progress along the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, and a flight of steps provides the connection to the adjacent A9 road bridge.

The view the opposite way to #101520, and the end of an unspecified cycle route. The HArTT cycle route comes through here too, but is without a sign.

An uncontrolled crossing of the A9 in Falkirk. See also #101518.

A path leading to an uncontrolled crossing of the A9 (see #101519) and the Sunnyside playing fields. Although the HArTT cycle route goes past either end of this path, it uses a signalled crossing of the A9 further to the north.

The immediate way around the blockage in #101515 is to use this flight of steps up to the A9 bridge to cross the railway. The alternative is to use the road approach to the bridge to avoid the steps.

The A9 shared-use footway/cycleway turns a corner into Mungalend and just ends. The A9 itself continues without any cycle provision. The car parked on the footway across the junction has 'for sale' notices in the window. Buy from a pavem ... [more]

A poorly filled trench across the shared-use footway/cycleway alongside the A9, and a 'Cyclists Dismount' sign at the pedestrian crossing. The shared footway continues (for a short distance) beyond the crossing.

Posts for the huge motorist sign have been kept (almost) out of the way of the cycleway.

Unlike the provision for crossing to Abbotsford Business Park, where left and right turns are catered for instead of forced right-angled turns, the path to Hayfield is made difficult to use with a chicane barrier.

Left and right turns catered for at the Abbotsford Business Park junction on the A9 shared footway/cycleway, instead of the usual forced right-angled turn.

Low hanging branches above the A9 shared-use footway.

The shared-use footway alongside the A9 crosses sides for some reason.

The shared-use footway alongside the A9 crosses sides for some reason, as well as crossing the side roads to industrial estates.

The shared-use footway alongside the A9 crosses sides for some reason, although there appears to be room for it to stay on the same side. There's even a signalled crossing in about half a mile or so.

The shared-use footway alongside the A9 crosses sides for some reason, although there's a choice of going clockwise or anti-clockwise around the roundabout. But someone going to Abbotsford Business Park has to cross the A9 twice.

The shared footway alongside the A9, with a warning for drivers of the crossing up ahead.

No provision for joining the ramp down to the Forth & Clyde Canal directly coming from the west, so must make sharp turn. Maybe not the most popular direction to approach from, but would have been easy to build at the same time as the rest ... [more]

The turnoff from the A9 shared footway for the ramp down to the Forth & Clyde Canal, including a marker post for the HArTT cycle route.

A sign warning of the path junction up ahead. There's another beyond the junction facing the wrong way.

A sign warning of a path joining from the right. It's more of a dirt path than an actual cycle track.

A metal barrier and a parked Falkirk Council van blocking the shared footway/cycleway at the A9 roundabout.

The path, rather than coming to an end as the sign suggests, crosses the A9 at grade, and continues across the far side. There is also a shared-use footway alongside the A9 to the right.

An uncontrolled at-grade crossing of the A9 road, on the path to the Helix park.

Approaching the A9 crossing. Only the railway gets a bridge.

A route sign for the HArTT cycle route, directing cyclists onto the A9. There is no evidence to be seen that the footway on this section is legal for shared-use.
