Work begins on £14.5m Motherwell station redevelopment [ScotRail]





Date: 25/06/2020

Work on the £14.5m redevelopment of Motherwell station is set to begin next week.

From Monday, 29 June, contractors will begin work on the initial stage of the redevelopment project with the demolition of an old building at the bottom of Platform 1 to make way for a new staff car park.

The demolition and construction of the new car park is expected to take around six weeks to complete and will have no operational impact on the station.

However, the taxi rank at the front of Motherwell station will close over the coming weeks to make way for staff portacabins in preparation for the next stage of the redevelopment works. Taxi pick up and drop off will remain available on Muir Street.

The second stage of the redevelopment will see work take place on the main station building over a six-month period, which will bring changes to how customers access to the station platforms.
