The path under the M9 motorway connecting the Helix park to Grangemouth. From here, the signed route to the Jupiter Wildlife Centre is for pedestrians only. A signed cycle route to the centre of Grangemouth could be organised at minimal exp ... [more]

A toucan crossing across A905 Beancross Road, a signed walking route to the Jupiter Wildlife Centre, and barriers across a path to Chisholm Place/Almond Street. Primrose Avenue (to the left behind the camera) is a key link between Grange ... [more]

A path connecting Chisholm Place to Portal Road, without even basic crossing facilities like dropped kerbs where it crosses Newlands Road.

A path connecting Portal Road to Chisholm Place, although there are no dropped kerbs (nor any other crossing facilities) where it crosses Newlands Road. The whole length of Portal Road (which runs parallel to the A905 Beancross Road) is rid ... [more]

A single-sided sign for the routes available across the Grange Burn, but a low kerb rather than a proper dropped kerb at the end of the path. I wouldn't want to bump the bike over this when it is loaded with shopping!

A footbridge across the Grange Burn Flood Relief Channel, linking the Grange Burn path to Rannoch Park. The A905 and M9 motorway lie beyond.

The path alongside the Grange Burn, a bridge across the Grange Burn, and a sign for a completely cycleable walking route to Grangemouth Stadium.

Signs on the path network near the Grange Burn. The sign for Grangemouth Stadium is for pedestrians only, unlike the next one, shown in #102918.

Looking across NCN76 at the path junction near Torwood Avenue.

The paths clearly existed before NCN76 came along, and the alignments and widths were not altered.

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.

NCN76 shared footway looking towards Zetland Park.

The transition between shared footway and road is a mess, with right-angled turns, and a bin and a cabinet blocking the way.

Murals on the former line of the railway near Irlam Station.

Cycle barrier. Rounded shape enables a normal bike to be wheeled through, but it would be difficult with a tandem or trailer.

Cycle Barrier. not quite as inconvenient as it looks.

NCN76 goes from Park Road into Zetland Park.

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 old road under the old railway bridge has been closed to motor vehicles, but remains open to cycling and walking into the Kinneil Estate.

An abandoned section of old road at Kinneil, with no connecting path to the footway on the new road, although it is not too difficult to walk across the grass.

The John Muir Way leaving a car park at the Kinneil end of the Bo'ness waterfront section.
