Post Office plans to open a new branch in Motherwell

The Post Office is proposing to re-locate the former Bellshill Road Post Office in Motherwell to create a modern branch with extended opening hours.

The new branch will offer services from an open plan service point integrated into a retail counter instead of from a screened counter.

To be known as Kylemore Crescent Post Office, it will be situated within Ali & Son, Premier Store, Kylemore Crescent. This is 400 metres from the former post pffice which closed in August.

The Post Office is now inviting comments on the proposal.

The branch would open from 9am to 8pm Monday to Saturday and 11am to 4pm on Sunday. This would be 51 hours a week more than are currently offered.

Simon Drinkwater, Post Office regional manager, said: “We are confident this new service will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.’’
