Photo listing : route signs (problem)

The most recent photos are listed first. See also photomap view.

This listing only shows photos within Falkirk.
Go to the national CycleStreets photo listings for photos beyond.

Four ways, only two signposted, and a desire line becoming apparent.

Signs in Bainsford. I can't think why Carron and Stenhousemuir are only for pedestrians, or why they didn't name the hospital. Imagine walking three and a quarter miles and it turns out to be the wrong one! The single-sided HArTT cycle r ... [more]

An 'End of Cycle Route' sign on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath near the Falkirk Wheel, but which cycle route is it that ends here? NCN754 continues to Clydebank. The ramp to the right leads to the Falkirk Wheel North Car Park.

The HArTT cycle route goes down this steep slope to the Union Canal (see #101156). A new sensibly graded ramp has been built to the right (see #101153).

Tiny route signage for the HArTT cycle route. Easy to miss at a turn.

While the John Muir Way signs give correct direction information, the HArTT cycle route signs tell people to cycle over a continuous crash barrier and down a steep embankment. The signs haven't been twisted around - they are bolted together ... [more]

A sign for the HArTT cycle route pointing towards Spinkhill (see #103160), but as the old railway bridge was removed (see #103161), a hair-pin bend path has been built up to New Hallglen Road to use its bridge instead. No indications whethe ... [more]

Tiny signs for the HArTT cycle route below another sign at Spinkhill. Are people really expected to notice these?

The destination sign points to the HArTT cycle route's destinations of Callendar Park and the Falkirk Wheel as being up the path to Ash Grove but the HArTT cycle route badge points right along the path to the Westquarter Glen. See also #103 ... [more]

Really not the end of the cycle route, which continues across the road crossing. If there were special regulations like on a motorway an 'end of cycle path regulations' sign would be appropriate, but it isn't like that.

With all these 'End of Cycle Route' signs, it is difficult to tell where the HArTT route continues!

A partially hidden marker post for the HArTT cycle route. You ain't gonna see that from the road!

Helix signage at Laurieston Road, but shows the HArTT cycle route turning right instead of left!

Working from the map on the Falkirk Helix website, I've decided this must be the junction where the HArTT cycle route turns in all directions, in order to do a loop around Callendar Park in addition to the woods. However, only the yellow wa ... [more]

A crossroads of paths in Callendar Woods, and just a solitary marker post for the John Muir Way. Nothing for the HArTT cycle route.

A 3-way junction in Callendar Woods. As this is meant to be on the HArTT cycle route, I'd expect some sort of route information. The post on the right is for a circular walking/jogging route around the woods from Callendar Park.

The way to avoid the steps at #101523 is to take the A9 road bridge across the railway, and the HArTT cycle route appears to do just that. However, there is no evidence that the narrow footway is legal for shared use, and the provision ... [more]

The view the opposite way to #101520, and the end of an unspecified cycle route. The HArTT cycle route comes through here too, but is without a sign.

Various signs but no mention of the HArTT cycle route which comes through here and along the path to Bainsford according to the council's map. See also #101522.

A route sign at the end of the path through Hallglen, pointing across the main road to the paths at #101176. The road crossing is terrible and desperately needs upgrading. Due to the terrain, a footbridge may even be an easy enough solution ... [more]

A route sign on the Union Canal, with four directions indicated: Union Canal eastbound (via Falkirk Tunnel) Union Canal westbound (Falkirk Wheel) Falkirk High station Dirt path to Slamannan Road (part of the HArTT cycle route, #103474) ... [more]

A route sign on the Union Canal, with four directions indicated: Union Canal eastbound (via Falkirk Tunnel, sign hidden behind post) Union Canal westbound (Falkirk Wheel) Falkirk High station Dirt path to Slamannan Road (part of the HAr ... [more]

A destination sign facing the wrong way in Stewart Avenue.
