Motherwell Station Redevelopment

Click here for the latest update on Motherwell station redevelopment work.

Motherwell Station is currently undergoing a £14.5m development to transform the station building and its facilities.

ScotRail, North Lanarkshire Council, Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT), and Transport Scotland have all teamed up to revamp Motherwell station to create a more comfortable and efficient gateway to the Glasgow City Region.

£14.5m is being invested into the project to enable significant redevelopment work to take place on and around the station. The area at the front of the station building will see a complete overhaul to improve links between bus and train services, and to reduce congestion.

Once complete the project will deliver:

  • An enhanced station forecourt and building with a glazed roof and a brighter, larger concourse.
  • Improved ticket retailing facilities.
  • A better retail environment with more choices for food and drink.
  • Refurbished customer toilets and waiting facilities.
  • Improvements to pedestrian and cycling access.
  • Expansion of the bus facility on Muir Street.
  • New facilities for taxis, car drop-offs and disabled parking.
  • Expansion of nearby park and ride facilities at Farm Street.

The project is being delivered in phases and will take around 18 months to complete.
