Ravenscraig Active Travel Links


Creating new paths for cycling and walking at Ravenscraig.

We’ve worked in partnership with Ravenscraig Limited to create a new route for cycling and walking. The route, which connects Ravenscraig with Craigneuk, improves links to existing facilities within Ravenscraig and expands the local active travel network.

The project comprised the construction of: 

  • a south-north link connecting Craigneuk via “The Castings” housing development, off Meadowhead Road, with the Regional Sports Facility (RSF) and the new public park - Meadowhead Road to O’Donnell Way
  • an east-west link connecting Craigneuk via “The Castings” housing development, to New College Lanarkshire Motherwell Campus – Meadowhead Road to Robberhall Road.

Planning permission for the project was granted in June 2021.
