East Airdrie Link Road Options

We regret that due to COVID-19 we had to take the decision to postpone the public events.

You can still see all the information we would have presented at the events on this page.

We have also extended the date for you to provide comments.

We recommend you sign up to our email alerts as the best way to keep up-to-date.

Please continue to view this page for further updates.

What is the East Airdrie Link Road?

We propose to create a new route between Newhouse and Stand/Riggend.

Through City Deal funding, we are looking to create a new single carriageway road link with pedestrian and cycle ways to the east of Airdrie. This will reduce traffic journey times and congestion as well as improve air quality in and around Airdrie.

This proposal is a key part of a much larger vision, to improve the current link from the M74 to the M80. We feel a new East Airdrie Link Road is vital for this to be a success.

What are we doing?

This is the first stage in the process and will show you the options we have considered together with the options we propose to take forward to investigate further.

This is your first opportunity to give us feedback and it is important that we know what you think.

The options and your feedback on them

Due to COVID-19 we have extended the date for you to provide us your comments on the options.

Please provide any feedback you may have by 4.45pm on Thursday 30 April 2020.

We have made all the information that the team would have presented at the public events available for you to see.

You can still see the pdf icon Link Road options [8Mb] that have been considered, and the pdf icon shortlist of Link Road options [1Mb] we are planning to develop further.  

We would like your feedback on the shortlist to assist us, as we move forward to Stage 2.

Please provide any comments you have using our online feedback form or if you prefer, you can print-off the pdf icon paper version of the feedback form [65kb], fill it in and return it to us in the post. 

To assist you, we have provided answers to the questions we think you may have about the project.

What happens next?

As we progress the project and develop it further, there will be a number of other stages where you will be able tell us what you think.

The next stage is for us to develop the short listed options we are looking to take forward. At Stage 2 we will present the more detailed options for you to comment on. We expect this to be around October 2020.
