This is a large and complex project that will take several years to complete and will need to be delivered in different phases.
Work will start during 2022 and is not expected to finish until 2025.
The first thing we will do is create a new railway bridge that the road will go under and connect with Ravenscraig.
The dates we expect the different works to start
Ravenscraig Access Infrastructure South
- Building the bridge crossing under the West Coast Main Line Railway - begins May 2022.
- Building the dual carriageway from Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility to Motherwell and the junction at Airbles Road/Windmillhill Street - begins spring/summer 2023.
- Completing the dualling of Airbles Road - begins early 2024.
Ravenscraig Access Infrastructure North
- Upgrading 3km of the A723 from the New Craig Road junction at Ravenscraig to the M8 at Holytown - 2024.
When the project is fully approved, these dates may change and if we can, we may look to start work earlier.
