The shared footway outside the Alison Lea Medical Centre. I don't know who thought that this would be an adequate design.

Footway parking partially on the shared footway outside the Alison Lea Medical Centre. Google Streetview shows a greater degree of obstruction in its image.

The end of the Calderwood Road section of the cycle route to Brancumhall, and some footway parking outside the Alison Lea Medical Centre.

The widened footway on this side of Calderwood Road ends, but not before it has been obstructed by a control cabinet for the toucan crossing.

The Calderwood Road shared footway switches sides at the toucan crossing ahead.

The Calderwood Road shared footway, with a bus shop, footway parking, and a pinch-point crossing on the road across to a school.

Give way at Capelrig Drive, with space for a waiting car.

Give way at the schools entrance.

Both paths have cycle signs on them, so possibly could divert if a heavily laden bus pulls up and starts unloading, but otherwise the left path goes directly to the school and the right is for following Calderwood Road.

Cross Carlyle Drive behind a waiting car.

Give way to drivers exiting the Whitemoss Recreation Area - loss of priority.

Options to pass in front of or behind the bus shelter, depending on bus passenger activity.

Limited sight lines at the St Leonards Road traffic lights on the Calderwood Road shared footway.

The Calderwood Road shared footway passing a bus stop at the sports centre.

The original cycle track from the Whitemoss Roundabout joins Calderwood Road, but a new shared-use footway starts and continues to the Alison Lea Health Centre, from where there is a local cycle route extending to Brancumhall.

The original cycle track leads cyclists out onto the busy Whitemoss Road carriageway. But the footway has been made shared use, without a connection being made between the cycle track and the footway to allow transfer onto the shared footwa ... [more]

A path being widened at Whitemoss Roundabout.

The shared-use footway alongside one side of the busy Whitemoss Avenue.

The Whitehills cycle path.

The Whitehills cycle path, at this point no wider than most other main paths in East Kilbride.

Barriers on the paths either side of Newlandsmuir Road. Quite why East Kilbride's cycle route 1 doesn't go straight across and along the path ahead right through to Lonsdale Gait (avoiding the Greenhills Road roundabout) I don't know.

The Clydebank North Circular Link alongside the A82 dual carriageway, with some advance notice for motorists of roadworks in a different county!

A 'No Cycling' sign on what is now the much vaunted Clydebank North Circular Link cycleway alongside the A82 dual carriageway.

Obstructive pavement parking on the shared-use footway on Dalsholm Road between the Garscube Estate path and the Kelvin Walkway, forcing riders onto the crumbling carriageway. There is a free car park at the top of the hill in the backgroun ... [more]

A poor quality shared-use footway on Halgreen Avenue. The other side of the road doesn't even have a footway, even though it is outside a school!

@michaelamj @SpokesLothian @POPScotland Here’s the “cycling/pedestrian” lane right in front of the Straiton retail park. I had to lift my bike so I didn’t puncture any tyres https://t.co/ARu4x2OzL7

The start of the Lincoln Avenue cycle track, seen from the opposite direction to #101264.

The Cycle Quietway through Knightswood links the Orca cycle routes on Dyke Road and Lincoln Avenue without going along Alderman Road. The entrance to the Lincoln Avenue cycle track is rather cluttered and the cycle track itself can barel ... [more]

A Cycle Quietway has been signed through Knightswood, but doesn't use the newly widened and converted shared-use footway on Dyke Road.

Richard doing the valuable work of measuring the width of the new cycleway. It was four metres.

Richard doing an excellent job of measuring the cycleway- it’s four metres wide here, but note that it’s shared with horse and foot.

Shared use comes to an end, cyclists continue on the road at this junction. CYCLISTS REJOIN CARRIAGEWAY

The only (?) Segregated cycleway between Midlothian and the city and it's used as parking on a frequent basis for housing development. @lmacinnessnp @SEStCC @SpokesLothian https://t.co/MknV62iylB

Leighton Buzzard new bit of cycleway to the right but rest feels like it belongs (quite rightly) to pedestrians.

Yarrow Road

Four metre wide cycleway alongside Yarrow Road. Cyclists still have to give way at the side-roads, but at least there's not many of them along here.

New shared use cycleway on Fulbourn Road. Width measured here: 4.0m

Informal crossing of Fulbourn Road from the shared-use cycleway to the Peterhouse Technology Park.

Estimating the width of this shared use cycleway using the iPhone measure app. Width shown is 2.83m but add about 76cm for the manhole cover. Width of shared use cycleway: 3.5m

Shared use joins carriageway at a short advisory cycle-lane ahead of a pinch point.

Glasgow's joined up infra as it transitions from segregated to 'shared with pedestrians'. A pole and a parked van. Nice. https://t.co/I1zYIvWeLB

“Share the road” will always disappoint. https://t.co/sGd1pEyqT7 Location determined from the VAME visible in the distant building, the letter D is occluded. Possible original tweet: https://twitter.com/radentscheid/status/1066291 ... [more]

Cycling home with Flora along Pollokshaws Road. Traffic management for the shared path resurfacing better cycle provision than path itself! Buy hey, 6 lanes for motors obviously essential https://t.co/Whhbubr5SC

Really not the end of the cycle route, which continues across the road crossing. If there were special regulations like on a motorway an 'end of cycle path regulations' sign would be appropriate, but it isn't like that.

With all these 'End of Cycle Route' signs, it is difficult to tell where the HArTT route continues!

The cycle lane marking at the end of Callendar Boulevard encourages cycling on the wrong side of the road, just like #101199 at the other end of the road.

The end of Callendar Boulevard and the start of the path to Old Redding Road.

The Humber Road cycling improvements are coming along in Beeston. What do people think? @broxtowebc @D2N2GrowthHub @Anna_Soubry https://t.co/rMweFggKPm "Beware of opening car doors" (and signs on the cycleway).

The HArTT cycle route crossing Icehouse Brae (North), with a waymarker post tucked away in the corner. Surprisingly, no 'End of Cycle Route' signs!

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.

A single bollard in an already narrow path, approached in all directions by paths. Is this really necessary? No directions on the signpost for the route to the right, which also happens to be the HArTT cycle route.

'End of Cycle Route'? The HArTT cycle route turns left here, and there is a link to Grangemouth through the underpass on the right. See #102937 for a close-up of the directions sign.

Looking across NCN76 at the path junction near Torwood Avenue.

The paths clearly existed before NCN76 came along, and the alignments and widths were not altered.

A shared-use path starts on the left, to avoid the junction ahead, although NCN76 appears not to use it and instead turns at the junction, then turns again onto the next section of the same path. The dropped kerb is also far from flush, ... [more]

NCN76 shared footway looking towards Zetland Park.

The transition between shared footway and road is a mess, with right-angled turns, and a bin and a cabinet blocking the way.

NCN76 turns right here towards Bo'ness while the Inchyra Road route carries on towards Grangemouth oil refinery (although this is not signed).

A sign with its posts blocking part of the width of the shared-use footway along Inchyra Road. The path clearly predates the sign. If someone is coming the other way, one of you will have to slow down to let the other go first.

A road sign straddling the shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road, with the posts more or less at the edges of the path, unlike the next sign.

NCN76 joins the shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road, but has several barriers across it.

The exit from Rannoch Park, a path from Rannoch Road, and their connection to the shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road.

The shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road. The person with the bike had ridden through Rannoch Park but dismounted at the awkward bit linking the park to the main road (see #102853).

The shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road. I'm sure there is room for the mobile phone mast to have been positioned further back and out of the way of the cycleway.

A path to Rannoch Park at the end of the Inchyra Road shared-use footway.

The uncontrolled pedestrian crossing across the A905 leads to the Inchyra Road shared-use footway. Presumably anyone cycling over that painted 'END' has to turn left with the traffic, onto the carriageway leading back to Inchyra Road.

A triple uncontrolled crossing across the A905 carriageways for pedestrians at Cadgers Brae Roundabout, across to the Inchyra Road shared use footway which runs between Rannoch Park and Grangemouth oil refinery.

Mumrills Road is now a well surfaced path between Sandy Loan and the A9 underpass at Beancross.

A faded solid line orders cyclists off the road onto a narrow shared use footway on Cambridge Road. This is probably because ahead there's a central right turn only lane (in both directions) for a garden centre and rugby club. The proble ... [more]

The signs say shared use ends but as you can see there’s nothing qualitatively different about the footway either side of the notice.

A solitary sign outside the chip shop declares that the footway on this section of James Street is shared-use. Leads to #33490.

The footway of McNeil Drive at Eurocentral has now been upgraded to shared use. However, there were no signs on the wide footways around the B799 Bo'ness Road roundabouts at the adjacent motorway junction which, according to the M8/A8 upgra ... [more]

The presumed shared-use footway alongside the road up to Palacerigg Country Park doesn't have a dropped kerb opposite Tannoch Road, making it difficult to join from the side road.

The cycleway between Eurocentral and Shawhead is open at last!

The Westburn Avenue shared-use footway crosses Westburn Avenue to get to the signalled crossing on Glenfuir Road and the bridge over the canal to the main towpath. The footway widening doesn't quite make it to the end of the shared footway.

The Westburn Avenue shared footway crossing Blinkbonny Road.

The Westburn Avenue shared-use footway passes a caged pedestrian crossing.

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.

Various signs but no mention of the HArTT cycle route which comes through here and along the path to Bainsford according to the council's map. See also #101522.

A shared footway in Victoria Park Drive South, and signage for local destinations.

A shared footway in quiet Glendore Street, and I think the raised crossing in Medwyn Street in the foreground could be better aligned with the footway.

Roadworks blocking most of the shared footway on Smith Street, but no dropped kerb to join the carriageway of this quiet street. No provision for left turns into Northinch Street either.

There are a lot of construction markings on the eastern side at Happendon Services. Will the cycle route actually benefit from an upgraded facility or will there just be sliproads to cross?

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 shared footway to the north of Blackwood is fairly narrow, right next to the carriageway, and ends pretty much as soon as it's past the 30mph signs. So roadies don't use it and it would be difficult to pass someone coming the other way ... [more]

This appears to be the end of the Dyke Road cycleway and the cycle route to the new BMX centre in Knightswood Park. I'm surprised the footway hasn't been widened behind the toucan crossing traffic signals to allow more room for turning.

I genuinely thought they would widen this extremely narrow footway as part of the Knightswood cycle route works, but no. See also #99502. At this point the shared-use footway on Dyke Road changes into a cycleway formed by orcas.
