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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Rather poor section through the woods
