Lift off for repair work to Motherwell towers

SIX Motherwell tower blocks are benefiting from works costing nearly £600,000.

North Lanarkshire Council’s housing and social work committee gave approval for new floor coverings in Burnside, Muirhouse, Shields and Elvan Towers and replacement lifts within Woodside and Glen Towers.

Contractor McGarry Flooring has started work on replacing the floor coverings in the entrance halls and landings of the four tower blocks at a cost of £183,000. The contract is expected to be completed by the end of March.

The four lifts in Woodside and Glen Towers will be replaced by contractor Lift Maintenance Ltd. Preparatory work on site will begin over the next few weeks with the main work starting on April 25 for 27 weeks. The cost of this work is £412,000.
