NCN 755 Strathkelvin Railway Path

NCN 755 Strathkelvin Railway Path

Gate, barrier and a big puddle where people have gone around the end of the wall, on the Strathkelvin Railway Path. Also, the sign (seen in #68168 closeup) still shows old route of path, now built over by the Kirkintilloch Initiative Road.

A path to Calfmuir Road, with stile, that is rough and no use for cycling. Better stick to the Strathkelvin Railway Path.

Bridge over the Bothlin Burn on the Strathkelvin Railway Path.

A poor surface on path built to replace Strathkelvin Railway Path built over by Kirkintilloch Initiative road scheme, only suited for leisure use rather than commuting.

A poor surface on path built to replace Strathkelvin Railway Path built over by Kirkintilloch Initiative road scheme.

Sign wrongly identifies the southern part of the Strathkelvin Railway Path as being NCN75. It is proposed to make it NCN755 at some point.

Not only is the southern section of the Strathkelvin Railway Path diverted (due to the Kirkintilloch Initiative Road) and unsurfaced, but users have to go around a crash barrier to get to it!

Lots of space dedicated to motoring with pedestrians and cyclists caged in on split pedestrian crossing (not even a toucan crossing).

The cycle route crosses the newly built Kirkintilloch Initiative Road on a split pedestrian crossing, rather than a toucan crossing.

Pathetically narrow shared-use footway past bus stop, with lamppost and railings further obstructing it. The group on the opposite footway would have to walk single file to get past this! But this is meant to be a purpose built cycleway, bu ... [more]

Ramped shared-use footway replacing steps in #26221.

The steps, built for the Strathkelvin Railway Path diversion due to the Kirkintilloch Initiative Road scheme, have been replaced with a ramp.

As the diversion of the Strathkelvin Railway Path is now permanent (due to the building of the Kirkintilloch Initiative Road), the diversion sign should be removed. There are now permanent signs across the road in any case.

The continuation of the Strathkelvin Railway Path in Industry Street, but no dropped kerb to access path directly from road. However, a nearby dropped kerb allows a short ride along the footway to gain access, with limited sight-lines due t ... [more]

Ramp down from Industry Street, allowing access to the open space around the Luggie Water and the Strathkelvin Railway Path.

Toucan crossing across Parliament Road, and ramp up to Industry Street, making the Strathkelvin Railway Path more user-friendly.

Junction in path and underpass beneath New Lairdsland Road. Either route will get the user to Industry Street from where the Strathkelvin Railway Path continues, but the route on the left is now more user friendly.

Footbridge over the Luggie Water, and the path up to the canal and town centre. The Strathkelvin Railway Path turns right at the end of the bridge.

Path surface does not join up on the Strathkelvin Railway Path, with an unsurfaced gap left between the tarmac and the mock railway track section under the canal bridge.

Money spent on some sort of artwork that would be better spent on the Strathkelvin Railway Path surface. The mock railway surface which continues under the canal bridge is getting a bit bumpy and there is full-width ponding on the unsurface ... [more]

Kerb across route of Strathkelvin Railway Path where it leaves the care home car park.

Ramp up to bridge over Luggie Water on route of the Strathkelvin Railway Path through Kirkintilloch. Route sign does not have any destinations other than North and South.

A car parked blocking the Strathkelvin Railway Path crossing on Eastside, forcing users into the road. The bollards in the foreground are the wrong way around, showing red to the offside of approaching drivers, but that's not the importa ... [more]

A new crossing of Eastside has been provided, next to the roundabout, but some motorist has parked on the northern-most part, forcing users into the road.

Junction of the Strathkelvin Railway Path and Canal Street (which links to the Forth & Clyde Canal). Signs here show various destinations for each (although walking to Kirkintilloch Town Centre would be quicker along Eastside in the opposit ... [more]

Lots of signs with tiny writing for the Strathblane Railway Path, the Thomas Muir Trail and the John Muir Way, at junction of NCN 754 and 755, but no destinations signed along the canal.

Sign for Strathkelvin Railway Path at Canal Street junction.

Sign for Strathkelvin Railway Path

Incorrect Sign This sign on the left is out of date. Although the railway path seems to continue a few yards NW, it is now cut off by a road and an impenetrable fence. If you are heading towards Kirkintilloch, you now need to divert off ... [more]

The Thomas Muir Trail has been signed to Clachan of Campsie, just off the Strathkelvin Railway Path.

The Strathkelvin Railway Path is now a bit overgrown on much of the section between Lennoxtown and Strathblane, making it hard to pass people coming the other way.

A typical bridge on Strathkelvin Railway Path

Strathkelvin Railway Path - the section west of Lennoxtown is tarmac

Cycle parking shelter at Kirkintilloch Leisure Centre

Undercover cycle parking at Kirkintilloch Leisure Centre

Cycle parking stands next to skatepark in Kirkintilloch, next to Strathkelvin path.

There's this new road being built between Kirkintilloch and the M80 motorway so the cycle path has been diverted......onto a flight of steps! UPDATE 2015: The steps have since been replaced by a ramp (see #68236).
