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, and
  • Strathclyde Country Park

We have funding from SPT and the Scottish Government Place Based Investment Programme this year to carry out design work.

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.

Work to widen the path from Merry Street at the Woodcutter pub, past the Aquatec centre to the pedestrian crossing on Hope Street, are underway. New signs will also be installed, all this work will be completed by the end of November. 

What’s happening next?

The design work is expected to be completed by March.

We are aiming to carry out the work over 2022 and 2023, depending on funding.

Completed work

In 2020 we have 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.
