The Post Office is proposing to move Muirhouse Post Office from its current location in Muirhouse Road to create a ‘modern open-plan local-style branch’ with extended opening hours.

The proposed new location is Smartway in Shields Road, 161 metres from its current site, and the Post Office is now inviting customers and interested parties to participate in a public consultation.

Should the move go ahead, the branch would open from 6:30am to 9pm on Monday to Saturday and 8:30am to 7pm on Sunday. This would be 51 and a half hours more than are currently offered.

Suzanne Richardson Post Office regional manager said: “We understand how important having a Post Office is to residents in Motherwell and we are confident that this new modern Post Office service will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.”

Submissions can be made during the consultation which runs until October 22 by Freepost YOUR COMMENTS to Post Office Ltd, via e-mail to, via the customer helpline on 08457 22 33 44 or Textphone 08457 22 33 55.

Customers can also share their views through the questionnaire at Post Office Views with the branch code 114855.
