Transport links are one of Uddingston’s greatest attributes. It is bisected by the M74, which has been widened to eight lanes as part of a £500 million upgrade to the central Scotland motorway network. The M74 merges into the M8 that connects west coast counties like Inverclyde and Renfrewshire with Edinburgh, sixty miles to the east.
Uddingston train station has direct services to Glasgow and Edinburgh
The M74 runs parallel to the West Coast Mainline that provides a vital rail artery between England and Scotland. Uddingston enjoys strong suburban rail connections with direct services to Glasgow and Edinburgh; three trains an hour make the 15-minute journey into Glasgow Central. Uddingston is also well-served with buses, including the 255 to Glasgow and the cross-county 107 service.
For residents travelling further afield, Glasgow and Edinburgh Airports are 25 and 35 minutes by car from the Raith Interchange. A key beneficiary of the aforementioned roads network investment, the Raith provides one of three motorway gateways into Uddingston. Slip roads beyond Calderbraes lead onto the M74, M73 and M8 respectively, while it’s also possible to join the Edinburgh-bound M8 via the new high-speed A725 East Kilbride-to-Coatbridge dual-carriageway.
