Holytown Link Road Business Case

Developing a business case for new link road

Supporting commercial development at Eurocentral

Evidence shows the current transport access arrangements at Eurocentral Business Park are constraining development at the facility and in the wider area. To tackle this, North Lanarkshire Council commissioned Stantec to develop a business case for a new link road between Holytown and Eurocentral as part of the Glasgow City Region City Deal.

The goal? To improve journey times and access to the facility, make the site more attractive to developers, improve connectivity for employees, and therefore increase employment and support economic activity in the local area. We developed a full business case in line with the Department for Transport’s five-case business case guidance. Our first task was to review existing material and gather evidence of the current situation and how this was limiting growth and development at Eurocentral. This included consultation with stakeholders. Following identification of the problems, we appraised options to determine value for money solutions, supported by a strategic and economic case of the preferred scheme option. We undertook several innovative tasks that added considerable value to the business case, including project infographics to easily summarise the benefits of the preferred option and key findings, and a range of value for money assessments.

Following the findings of the business case the scheme was taken forward for further development.
