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.
The notorious old footbridge was replaced by a new, glass one in 2008, following a major bridge lift. The upgrade wanted to make use of the extra space at this service area, by turning it into a park and ride site. Buses use the M8 while customers arrive using the rear access from Harthill village, using the bridge to cross over.
bp pulse electric vehicle charging points were installed here on both sides in 2021 with 4 charging points on the northbound side and 6 charging points on the southbound side.
Both sides are currently undergoing major redevelopment works. As part of these works, both sides are receiving upgrades to the toilet facilities and will gain new M&S Food branding. The westbound main building will close on 22 November 2021 and reopen on 9 December 2021. Temporary facilities will be provided in a portable building during this time.
