177198Photo #177198After a gap of a couple of miles, a permanent cycleway starts on London Road at the London Drive junction. It continues through the Mount Vernon junction onto Hamilton Road. Cycle lights allow cyclists across from the eastbound carriageway onto the new cycle track.

This section of the A74 was bypassed by the M74 motorway some years ago.

176480Photo #176480Having started with a clean slate, it is disappointing to see such a misalignment at the end of the West Street cycleway. The badly placed lamppost forces users to choose between going one side or the other, one of which means that they will be going diagonally across the tactile paving (see also #176481).Obstruction:

176479Photo #176479The South West City Way cycleway is blocked by contractors equipment. No diversion has been signed, and going onto the road requires cyclists to disregard the mandatory turn signage at the junction to continue straight ahead on the South West City Way.

Having used the correct tactile paving at Clyde Place, here at West Street corduroy hazard paving has been used instead of cycleway paving.
