First Glasgow has announced short term changes to a number of services due to the road closure in Motherwell town centre.

Work started today (Monday) and the gas distribution firm estimates it will be finished in three weeks, but the closures could potentially be in place until August 6.

Services X11, 201, 241 and 266 will be diverted and the nearest alternative stops are:

Service X11 towards Glasgow or Wishaw – Avon Street after Hamilton Road (temporary stops); Windmillhill Street east of Airbles Road.

Service 266 towards Hamilton – West Hamilton Street; Hamilton Road south of Tinkers Lane.

Services 201 and 266 will not serve Hamilton Road between Tinkers Lane and West Hamilton Street.
