Trivia and Design

The new bridge being lifted into place

Full details: History:Heart of Scotland

Heart of Scotland is the only services between Glasgow and Edinburgh, and for this reason it doubles-up as a long-distance bus interchange.

Despite its large footprint, it only has a forecourt sales building, leaving a lot of unused space which looks overgrown and unattended to.

A new, modern, glass footbridge was lifted into place in 2008 helps form a park and ride site at the services, with ramps and access from the local road network.

POLAR electric vehicle charging points are currently being installed on both sides and are expected to go live before the end of 2020.
