The latest new car park in Motherwell town centre, offering space for up to 133 vehicles, has been officially opened.

Located in Scott Street, the facility has been built by North Lanarkshire Council on the site of the former Cathedral Primary School at a cost of £500,000.

It is the third new car park opened around Motherwell town centre recently, after similar facilities at St Vincent Place and Farm Street.

Councillor James Coyle, convener of the council’s planning and transportation committee, said: “The Scott Street car park is ideally placed for all the facilities in the town centre, linking through the underpass direct to the pedestrianised section of Merry Street then on to Muir Street and Brandon Parade.

“By increasing the number of parking spaces in our town centres, the council is making it easier for people to access local facilities and therefore helping to boost the local economy.

“This car park also forms part of the latest element of the town centre regeneration, which will see a public space created in front of Motherwell Cathedral and the area along Coursington Road landscaped and improved.”
