Intermittent painted cycle lanes on the 40mph A88 Bellsdyke Road, a signed diversion route for the M876 motorway.

Priority over oncoming vehicles for northbound traffic at the bridge over the River Carron, and narrow gaps for drainage and maybe cycling. The road is bypassed by the newer New Carron Road.

An opportunity to create a cycle link between Abercrombie Street and Mansionhouse Road across the A803 Main Street in Camelon by upgrading the existing pedestrian crossing. Mansionhouse Road leads to the Forth & Clyde Canal.

An opportunity to create a cycle link between Mansionhouse Road and Abercrombie Street across the A803 (and with A9 traffic) Main Street in Camelon, by upgrading the existing pedestrian crossing and installing dropped kerbs outside Falkirk ... [more]

The end of the cycle path from Cumbernauld Road and the Forth & Clyde Canal, but neither a dropped kerb to get onto the carriageway or a shared footway in either direction. Allandale to the left, Castlecary (and the quieter Walton Road to A ... [more]

The nearest dropped kerb to the start of the path to Falkirk High station (see #103464) is on a very narrow section of footway, and together with the barriers makes for a needlessly awkward piece of cycling.

The end of Hallglen Terrace and the start of the path through to the Glenburn Road underpass. See also #103233.

No signs for the HArTT cycle route at the busy Redding Road Roundabout, nor any suggestion that the footway may be shared use. Plenty of space, but just an ordinary narrow footway.

No dropped kerb for the HArTT cycle route at the end of the path, a very narrow footway, and a busy road to cross. See #103067 for the view the other way.

The HArTT cycle route turns left from Sandy Loan onto Polmont Road, then turns right onto a path (at the sign post) where there isn't even a dropped kerb! No help crossing this busy road. See #103068 for the view in the other direction. ... [more]

This crossing across the A9 took a while to cross. I wouldn't want this to be my route to and from work.

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]

A painted cycle lane has been provided through the traffic calming pinch-point, but only in one direction.

The painted cycle lanes on Bo'ness Road end here, and a jug-handle is provided to cross to the parallel access road to the right.

The painted cycle lanes continue from here into Grangemouth town centre.

The Grangemouth cycle route leaves the relative calm of the access roads to join painted cycle lanes on the main A904 carriageway.

The Grangemouth cycle route links between sections of access road alongside the main Bo'ness Road carriageway, with a short cycle track to wait on before making the turn across potential motor traffic to and from the A904 roundabout.

The Grangemouth cycle route links from one section of access road alongside Bo'ness Road to another.

Bo'ness Road in Grangemouth oil refinery. The footway has resumed, but the cycleway (see #102751) has yet to start.

The National Speed Limit applies on Bo'ness Road towards Grangemouth oil refinery. The footway ceases shortly, and only resumes at the refinery some distance past the narrow River Avon bridge.

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.

A poor uncontrolled pedestrian crossing across the M9 on-ramp at the Cadgers Brae Roundabout. A gap in the cycle network between Falkirk and Grangemouth.

The A9 approaching the Cadgers Brae Roundabout. A gap in the cycle network between Falkirk and Grangemouth. A shared-use path commences just after the roundabout.

Boyd Street, looking towards Laurieston Cross mini-roundabout.

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

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

The main road around Falkirk town centre doesn't look very cycle-friendly.

Bus priority in Falkirk doesn't extend as far as traffic signal detection.

End of the cycle lane and part-time bus lane on Camelon Road, and start of Falkirk town centre's one-way system.

In theory the bus lane should help separate the cycle lane from the traffic in the general traffic lane, but almost all of the car drivers were choosing to drive in the bus lane outside of operational hours.

The start of a narrow painted cycle lane on Camelon Road, just after a collapsing gully at a bus stop.

An uncontrolled crossing of the A9 in Falkirk. See also #101518.

A short section on-road at Bankside to avoid the steps in #101138.

The shared-use footway alongside the A9 crosses sides for some reason, as well as crossing the side roads to industrial estates.

The staggered toucan crossing connecting the main Helix park and the football stadium (and car park). The central island is quite narrow and negotiation is required when people are passing in opposite directions.

An uncontrolled at-grade crossing of the A9 road, on the path to the Helix park.

A safe route linking Bog Road to Callendar Boulevard along Callendar Road would provide a direct route between the Helix and Callendar Park. Even upgrading the footway to shared-use and putting in a crossing would probably suffice.

The cycle lane has been painted the wrong way around. Such incompetence!

A break in the car parking to see the narrow painted cycle lanes.

A simple road closure that allows cycles through.

Rather poor section through the woods
