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.

Extremely poor finishing at the expansion joint at the north end of the Eurocentral bridge over the M8 motorway.

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

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 view from the bridge over the M8 motorway on Carnbroe Road, looking towards Coatbridge.

Carnbroe Road approaching the bridge over the new M8 motorway.

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

An expensive farm access road over the M8 motorway 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.

The foot and cycle bridge over the M8 motorway and A8 dual carriageway to the Showcase Cinema and Kirkwood, but why the gate?

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).

The M8 cyclepath crossing the A8 sliproad and A752 at grade. No tactiles at this side.

The M8 cyclepath crossing the A752-A8 sliproad at grade. Why are some 'Give Way' and other signs lit but not other similar signs at this junction?

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.

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

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.

Broken glass on the cyclepath under the Bredisholm Road bridge, next to the new M8 motorway.

A junction between a section of cyclepath alongside the M8 motorway and Bredisholm Road coming off its bridge over the motorway and A8 dual carriageway. If the intent was that cyclists would go to Bargeddie (and not straight ahead to Bailli ... [more]

Signs on the farm road adjacent to the newly built M8 motorway at Bargeddie.

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.

The path to Eurocentral has still to open (due to subsidence, see #97667) but no diversion has been signed.

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.

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.

If you want to go south to Bellshill you must first go north to go around the end of this barrier. And if you're coming south you need to pick a side and hope you've picked the right side when you get to the direction sign in #99653. See al ... [more]

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]

If motorway regulations apply up to the sign, shouldn't there be a fence between the motorway and the path?

The start of the toucan crossing chain from the former Harry Ramsden's restaurant to the Paisley Road cycle track.

Toucan crossings over Paisley Road and the sliproad from Carnoustie Street, under the Kingston Bridge.

Hopefully the new cycle route proposed for Jura Street will fix the problem of the missing dropped kerb at the ramp up to the M8 motorway underpass.

Jura Street where a new cycle route is proposed linking the M8 motorway underpass to Bellahouston Park.

A new approach path to the M8 motorway underpass at the end of Craigton Road, arranged to dissuade obstructive parking, although this doesn't always work (see #102730).

@andy_fab Here is the path at Shawhead which heads towards Eurocentral, affected by landslip This is the only unopened section but it has been like this since about August last year. They fence it off and folk pull off the fences but not us ... [more]

The as yet unopened cycleway beneath the Bredisholm Road bridge, next to the M8 motorway. The path appears to be routed around a SUDS pond, after which it rejoins a position adjacent to the motorway. Not sure a road would be designed like t ... [more]

The as yet unopened cycleway beneath the Bredisholm Road bridge, next to the M8 motorway. Note that the signs at the junction with Brediholm Road are for destinations requiring a sharp turn and no destination is given for straight ahead.

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]

The replacement Bredisholm Road farm road access bridge across the A8 and M8 motorway was originally meant to be ready to reopen in July 2016, but looks like there is still quite a bit of work to do if it is to meet the revised target of Ma ... [more]

The cycleway crosses the A8 sliproad on an uncontrolled crossing to the right of the mini-roundabout. When I crossed, a driver stopped to wave me across when I suddenly appeared from behind a van. I get that there are roadworks going on, ... [more]

Other than the barriers in #87543, a good job has been made of the replacement footbridge at Hillington.

Slalom at each end of ramps to new Hillington footbridge.

To get from Vermont Street to Scotland Street involves going around the odd-shaped roundabout under the motorway, or hopping onto the footway, which as #70775 and #70773 show gets very narrow.

The replacement for the damaged Hillington Footbridge is still not in place. It's meant to be opening this month! http://www.transportscotland.gov.uk/project/m8-hillington-footbridge-replacement UPDATE: This timelapse sequence shows t ... [more]

Clear & comforting signage for cyclists looking for that award winning bridge. #glasgowcycleinfraday http://t.co/D8poHQe95m

Ramped bridge over motorway - this one has no steps!
