Motherwell town centre and rail station

Motherwell Station Active Travel links

Improving routes for pedestrians and cyclists in Motherwell.

We are working on improving walking, wheeling and cycling routes between:

  • Motherwell rail station
  • Motherwell town centre
  • Strathclyde Country Park
  • Ravenscraig

We have funding from SPT and the Scottish Government Place Based Investment Programme to carry out design work and deliver the first phase of the project.

What will the project provide?

  • new and improved shared paths for walking, wheeling and cycling
  • improved pedestrian and cyclist road crossings

What’s happening now?

We have appointed a company to carry out design work for the walking, wheeling and cycling route improvements. The designs for the first phase of the project are now complete.

Work to construct a shared-use walking, cycling and wheeling path from Motherwell Rail Station to Braidhurst Industrial Estate will start in November.

It is also planned to construct shared-use paths on Hope Street, and change the roundabout at Muir Street and Hope Street to a junction. This will have traffic signals and pedestrian/cyclist crossings, and the work should start in Spring.

What’s happening next?

Depending on funding over 2023, we hope to do more design work for active travel routes on:

  • Hamilton Road
  • Merry Street
  • Bellshill Road

We will also bid for more funding to construct these routes.

Completed work

In November 2021 we did work to widen the path from Merry Street at the Woodcutter pub, past the Aquatec centre to the pedestrian crossing on Hope Street.

In 2020 we completed walking and cycling route improvements in Strathclyde Park and put up new signs between Strathclyde Park and Motherwell Rail station.

What else are we doing in the area?

We’re working in partnership with Ravenscraig Limited to create new routes for cycling, walking and wheeling into and through Ravenscraig. The new routes will make it easier to get to neighbouring communities and improve links to facilities in Ravenscraig.
