Eurocentral park and ride

Improving transport links for businesses and employees

A new park and ride/share facility is proposed at the location due to the proximity of Eurocentral/Maxim to the A8 and improved transport accessibility following Transport Scotland's M8 upgrade programme.

We are exploring options to provide a new facility at Eurocentral that incorporates bus stops and approx 250 car park spaces (with the potential to expand to accommodate 500 spaces).

The proposal aims to encourage a shift from private car to bus and reduce the number of car journeys on the M8. It will combine accessible parking for motorists with good public transport links into Glasgow and Edinburgh city centres. The facility will enable commuters travelling along the Glasgow to Edinburgh route to leave vehicles and transfer to a bus system for the remainder of their journey. 

There is increasing demand for a park and ride/share facility at the site to replace the informal arrangement at Maxim that have caused on-site parking issues from those using the Glasgow to Edinburgh bus route. The project will formalise the informal parking activity that has taken place and follow on from the success of similar facilities at Newhouse and Harthill.

The facility, importantly, will also enhance both Eurocentral and Maxim as key employment and investment sites and help preserve their high quality environment. It will improve access to the employment opportunities for local people to Maxim Business Park and the rest of Eurocentral.

It will link with existing and future bus services to enable better public transport and providing increased demand will lead to the development of an improved, more frequent bus service. We will be working closely with bus companies to try and make this happen as the current situation to ensure it meets the requirements of a major employment site.

We are looking to identify the most suitable location for this and are working with our partners and landowners to develop the proposals further.
