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!

If the route to Bellshill and Coatbridge is so important, why does the shared-use footway alongside the A725 basically peter out at the top of Bogs Brae?

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]

The route from Bothwell to Strathclyde Country Park through the Raith Interchange first involves heading towards Bothwell Bridge to cross the dual carriageway in the toucan crossing seen in #93304.

The path linking Bothwell and the Raith Interchange shared-use paths still looks like a building site, despite the motorway junction having been open for several months.

A toucan crossing across the dual carriageway connects Bothwell to the Raith Interchange walking and cycling provision. As it forms part of the junction traffic signal system, one side of motor traffic is stopped before the other.

The path from the Raith Interchange continues alongside the dual carriageway to Bothwell Bridge. There is literally nothing on this side of the road. A toucan crossing is provided for getting across to Bothwell.

The end of the ramp from the Raith Interchange roundabout cycle bridge (see #93301) ends at the A725 sliproad. There are then some right-angled corners to turn at and toucan crossings to cross to get to Bothwell. Queuing drivers also see ... [more]

The ramp from the cycle bridge over the Raith Interchange roundabout comes down in the No Man's Land between two dual carriageways, rather than on the side where Bothwell is. Users therefore have to cross four carriageways using toucan cros ... [more]

The second cycle bridge across the Raith Interchange roundabout requires all users to pass under it and go around a loop to get up to it. There isn't even a staircase shortcut for walkers!

The second cycle bridge across the Raith Interchange roundabout requires all users to pass under it and go around a loop to get up to it. There isn't even a staircase shortcut for walkers!

An enforced sharp double-back to get to cross the new cycle bridge across the Raith Interchange roundabout coming from Strathclyde Country Park. Very poor design!

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.

Since the old footway around the Raith Interchange has been dug up, and the new footway (including the two new footbridges) is not finished, there is currently (May 2017) a free shuttle bus connection. It picks up here near the entrance to ... [more]

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.
