Avanti West Coast Set To Transform Motherwell Cross-Border Connectivity

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Rail Technology Magazine.

These are the first two paragraphs of the article.

Motherwell is set to see a transformation in services as Avanti West Coast announces plans for a major timetable boost on its Anglo-Scottish route.

The change in Avanti West Coast’s timetable will see the cross-border operator serve Motherwell with a further 96 services per week, the most substantial increase in cross-border rail services for the Scottish town in decades.

I used to have a client in Motherwell, thirty years ago, when I lived in Suffolk and that sort of service, would have been very helpful then.


  • CrossCountry and TransPennine Express services also call.
  • Motherwell station seems to have a variety of connections, most of which are electrified.
  • It is likely in future, an electric route will be created between Motherwell and Perth.

In the future High Speed Two will call half-hourly.


This seems to be an excellent proposal.
