General description

Lines Served

This is a through station on the line between Glasgow Central and Edinburgh or Motherwell.


The tracks run along a raised viaduct, running about east/west between separate platforms. Platform 1, serving westbound trains towards Glasgow Central lies south of platform 2, serving trains to Motherwell or Edinburgh via Shotts.

The ticket office is on platform 1, whilst a bridge, across the eastern half of the station, provides stairs access between platforms.


There is step-free access between Hamilton Road and each platform. There is also step-free access between Motherwell Road and platform 1, though there is stairs-only access to platform 2 from Motherwell Road.

There is also stairs access between platforms via the bridge.

We therefore believe this station is accessible to Guide Dog and wheelchair users.
