91255Photo #91255What looks like a nice straight through alignment is spoilt by dropped kerbs in the wrong place (see #91229) and the path beyond the road being narrowed and not asphalted (see #91163).Cycleway:

91236Photo #91236The inevitable result of placing a barrier in the way of the path and not diverting the path directly to the forced crossing point - a worn path across the grass.

Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but is that fence panel not meant to be installed so the bars allow visibility the other way, i.e. from the roadway to the left of the picture to the footway crossing point on the right, rather than from the roadway on the crossing to the footway behind the railing, so small children about to cross can be seen by drivers?

91233Photo #91233I guess they never thought that anyone would cycle to the industrial units, so never thought to install a dropped kerb where the path meets the road.

Of course, the majority of users will be going the other way, so why the turn away from that direction where the path meets the road, leading to the grass being worn away?

91164Photo #91164The narrow path in #91163 joins a wider path that has come down a slope from Tweedbank Drive and is both NCN1 and the Southern Upland Way. Only the latter is signed as going up the ramp here. But the narrow path is the more direct route and is flatter for going to the station and beyond on NCN1.Cycleway:
