East Side of Bellshill Road, Going North from the Crossing

There’s a grass verge between the pavement and the road with a gap to bus stop 616069.

The Bridge Over the Station

This bridge runs west from Bellshill Road to a side street off Ladywell Road, which is part of a housing estate along the west side of the tracks.

From the east end, Bellshill Road, you go up 14 steps, going west, onto the bridge. This had a rough, gravel surface at the time of our survey. Continue, west, over the tracks then down seven steps, going west, to street level. Continue west, past a metal fence on the right into Ladywell Road. Ladywell Road actually runs past the little side street which leads east to the bridge.
