Work gets underway at Airdrie development

A sod cutting ceremony marked the start of construction work

NEW homes and a park and ride car park form plans for a new development in Airdrie.

Based on the site of the former Alexandra Primary School, the plans include 14 new cottage flats, which are part of North Lanarkshire Council’s programme of works, which will see more than 2,000 homes built by 2027.

A 40-space park and ride car park, associated with Airdrie Train Station, is expected to be completed by March next year. SPT is contributing £400,000 this financial year to the construction of the new service.

The new homes are expected to be completed by July next year. Gareth Edwards, contracts manager for Robertson Partnership Homes Central said, “The housing development at Cairnhill Road, Airdrie, is one of eight projects Robertson is delivering in partnership with North Lanarkshire Council, procured through Scape Group’s National Major Works Framework.

“Once complete, these homes will bolster the region’s housing portfolio, providing high-quality and affordable living spaces for local residents. We are proud to be part of such a transformational investment.”

The Scottish Government contributes towards the development costs at each site.
