The only other person I saw on a bike in this part of the town. Poor infrastructure does not inspire great usage. The roadsign across the road is wrong in stating that motorway regulations apply to the road to the right at the junction a ... [more]

The cycle route through and beyond the motorway junction is a shared footway. There is a lot of dirt from the carriageway affecting the cycleway.

Compared to the shared footway on other side of the road, the end of the purpose built cycleway looks over-engineered. It could also do with a sweep.

The dropped kerb (see #29466) for accessing the M74 junction shared-use footway has inexplicably been removed! Despite the position of the sign on the left, the footway of New Rutherglen Road eastwards is not for cycling.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign at a pedestrian crossing? Why hasn't a toucan crossing been installed here?

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.

I did suggest at a meeting with Transport Scotland that they link the two bridges across the Raith Interchange roundabout with a bridge over the M74 motorway, creating a far more direct route. But they weren't having it. "Eyesore" or "distr ... [more]

Do motorway regulations apply to this path?

Another footbridge across a sliproad, another 'Cyclists Dismount' sign.

Although there has been nothing to indicate that cycling is allowed on this path, the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign implies that it is allowed. The alternative is the quasi-motorway A723.

Posts, one of them seemingly just for the hell of it! All three cars were driven through the second red light as well.

The route just ends at the traffic signals before the M74 off-ramp junction, with a Give Way into the Advance Stop Line. It's hard to see any logic as to when cycle facilities are provided here. Westbound it is to cross the off-ramp, with n ... [more]

The toucan crossing call point post is completely obstructing the cycle side of the footway. If a post was put in a motorway lane like this, it would be flattened by someone driving into it.

The toucan crossing signal boxes are positioned so they face away from approaching users.

The start of the M74 junction cycleway on Cambuslang Road.

The M74 junction cycleway starts just after a slight road narrowing, so users will have to take a defensive road position to avoid being run over, in which case they could just continue on the road in such a position.

Toucan crossing call point post in the way of the cycle lane. Clearly the designer isn't interested in providing a useable facility, just tick-boxing.

A very tight turn around the call point post to get into the cycle lane.

The designer of this has obviously been watching too many Danny MacAskill videos! Footway/cycleway crossing M74 off-ramp.

The cycleway on the footway starts just after the first M74 on-ramp junction.

Lighting repairs beneath the M74 motorway bridge.

A brand new bridge on Cathcart Road, over the brand new M74 motorway, and what have they done for cyclists?

NCN756 on the shared footway of Glasgow Road at the M74 motorway flyover. One of the better bits along this road, although there is no separation between the cycleway and the carriageway.

The Sri Lankan cycling team cruising down the M74, lovely spot for a bike ride. http://t.co/NYr17Pp6So

This road layout was completed from a blank canvas (the whole of the Oatlands housing scheme east of this point was demolished) and yet the road planners still didn't leave enough space for their planned "cycle facility" past one of the few ... [more]

A brand new shared-use footway/cycleway at the M74 motorway junction, already in a very poor state of repair!

Misleading tactiles and more posts in the shared-use footway on Polmadie Road, at the M74 motorway junction.

Toucan crossing across motorway sliproad at Polmadie Street, including shuttering even though it can't be seen from any other crossing, and making it difficult to see on approach to crossing!

Confused tactiles on corner of New Rutherglen Road and Polmadie Road

Footbridge over M74 sliproads near Strathclyde Park. This section is "Cyclists Dismount" (or cycle on the A723 dual carriageway through the motorway junction).
