Motherwell town centre and rail station

Partnership plans transport hub

We are currently working with Abellio Scotrail ltd and Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) to develop proposals to improve transport interchange at Motherwell Station.

This will help to increase the role of Motherwell Rail Station as a key transport connection hub in the future, and we are currently working on the designs for this.

The proposal involves upgrading and improving the infrastructure around Motherwell train station to improve access to the station.

It includes works to Muir Street and to the station forecourt, where new paved areas and street furniture will be designed to match what is currently on Muir Street, to reduce congestion in the town centre. It will expand the park and ride capacity for the station and enhance the interchange between car/bus/bike and train as well as improving cycling and walking links between the station and Strathclyde Park.

By working with Abellio Scotrail as they upgrade Motherwell Station, we will ensure the projects complement each other and make the most of the funding opportunities.
