Barriers as well as bollards on this section of NCN75 cycle path between Plains and Caldercruix, at farm road crossing

Dropped kerbs missing at closed-down filling station entrance on NCN75 shared-use footway, or maybe they just forgot to install them and left them lying across the entrance!

Car parking on the NCN75 shared-use footway through Plains is common

NCN75 shared-use footway alongside A89 on the east side of Plains, especially narrow across bridge over North Calder Water

Needlessly sharp corner on NCN75, on rebuilt path next to new school

Access to NCN75 from Cairnhill Road

Junction of path from school and NCN75. The only signpost is at the junction in the background (see #44123).

Speed sign ready for 100mph+ speeds on Victoria Place, Airdrie!

Obstructive railings on NCN 75 cycle path in Airdrie.

Junction of old and new routes of NCN 75. No mention of what is up ramp, just a plain 'straight on' sign. Also, railing hinders access to and from Bredisholm Road, which provides a shortcut to Glasgow via Baillieston.

Cyclists Dismount sign at the Plains end of the cyclepath from Bathgate. Are cyclists meant to walk to Airdrie where NCN 75 recommences?

A752 footway widened to make it shared-use for NCN75, then narrowed by having new streetlighting poles installed within the width of the footway. Shared use sign has at least been installed in the grass, outside of the footway. No buffer zo ... [more]

NCN 75 turns right here, but single-sided sign cannot be read from either direction if approaching on NCN 75.

Off-ramp to Drumpellier Business Park, but cyclists expected to know where they are going, so sign only provided on adjacent A89.

There's nothing to say old route of NCN 75 is on footway, so must assume it is on the road under narrow railway bridge. (See also #43939 and #43940)

Route signs on old route of NCN 75 pointing in opposite directions along Woodside Street. One should point along path behind where photo was taken from. They should also be larger so can be seen from other side of road. (See also #43939 and ... [more]

No dropped kerb at the end of ramp on old route of NCN 75. Route turns right onto road here. (See also #43940 and #43941)

No dropped kerb to get onto ramp on NCN 75

NCN 75 did used to come here some years ago, when it turned right under bridge in background of photo and up onto an old bridge on the far side of it to run alongside railway line to Stobcross Street.

Sustrans right turn sticker without route number, but it appears the route actually turned right onto path at previous corner where there was a left arrow on its own. Old route of NCN 75 in Coatbridge.

Minimalist route signage on Buchanan Street, Coatbridge, outside entrance to The Time Capsule leisure centre, just where cycling should be very visibly promoted!

I had lost the route but rejoined it here, where both sign patches are facing away from approaching cyclists on old route of NCN 75

Right turn on old route of NCN 75

Sign patches on the ground show the way on NCN 75 in Coatbridge, along narrow footway under railway bridge and across dead puffin crossing (see also #43848).

Sign patch breaking up at Coatbridge Fountain. NCN 75 goes along footway under bridge to the left (see #43849).

NCN 75 ramp up to Bank Street crossing from filled-in section of Monkland Canal, but no obvious signage. See #43846 for view in opposite direction.

NCN 75 path alongside filled-in Monkland Canal, with basketball net under railway bridge! See #43847 for view in opposite direction.

NCN 75 path along route of former Monkland Canal in Coatbridge. Note that lighting has been installed outside the edge of the path to avoid narrowings.

Even without the car parked there, these wheel-twisters at Summerlee Heritage Park are useless for parking bikes securely!

New signage for rerouted NCN 75 at Bargeddie

Toucan crossing across A89 dual carriageway and narrow NCN 75 shared-use footway

Will a new path entrance be formed here to Drumpellier Lawns housing estate when the temporary fencing is removed, or will a permanent fence go up, blocking the opportunity for a connection to a quiet road route into Glasgow?

lack of ncn signage. maybe due to recent vandalism.

New Airdrie-Bathgate path recommences after using access road for a short distance at Hillend Loch

Lots of covered cycle parking stands at Airdrie station, but their position is awkward to get to from the road network.
