The station building is located about 200 metres west of the point where Main Street (north/south) crosses the tracks.
Station Road leads west, south of the tracks, to the ticket office and entrance to platform 1. There's an extensive car park, which we'll call the south car park, along the south side of this road.
An unnamed road leads west from Main Street, north of the tracks, past an entrance to platform 2. A path continues west to join Old Glasgow Road (north/south) some distance west of the station. There's an extensive car park along the north side of this road which we'll call the north car park.
There are three entrance/exits to this station, all of which provide step-free access to the platform:
As you go into the ticket office, the sales window, with variable height counter and induction loop is to your left. Continue, through automatic doors onto platform 1.

There’s an open area lying west of this including a vehicle pick-up/drop-off point and three disabled persons’ parking bays.
There is a broad entrance, with eight bollards between the north car park and the platform, just east of the steps to the bridge. We noted 11 disabled persons parking bays just west of this entrance.
This is a K-junction with Main Street north/south, Station Road west and another road, we think Station Lane, southwest. There is no formal crossing of Station Road or Station Lane.
This is a single-stage crossing with tactile paving and sounder. There’s a post with push button, but no rotating cone, to each side as you cross to the east. Note that the left-hand post is shorter than the right.
When crossing west, the post with push button but no rotating cone, is to your right only.
Bus Stop 6150275, is near the south end of the bridge over the tracks. This stop has a shelter and seating though there was no information about services at the time of our survey.
Bus Stop no. 6150274, Uddingston Main Street, with shelter but no seat, serves:
Note that there’s a post, function unknown, just north of the actual bus stop post.

road, with central island, towards north car park and platform 2
Leaving platform 2, going north then turn left (west). There’s a vehicle pick-up/drop-off point just outside this entrance.
We pass a mesh fence on the left and a series of 11 bollards, each of which marks a disabled persons’ parking bay, to the right.
The car park continues beyond the bollards, beyond which the path continues west, down the hill.
There’s a metal rail across the end of the path, as you reach the pavement on the east side of Old Glasgow Road. We’re at a roundabout junction with Kyle Park Drive leading west. There is no formal crossing of these roads.
