Airbles is a small suburb to the south-east of Motherwell, North Lanarkshire. It is mainly a residential area, consisting mostly of a mixture of high-rise and low-rise flats. The dual carriageway, known as Airbles Road, passes through the suburb. It is hoped that in future, the dual carriageway can become a link road between the M8 and the M74 motorways. A section of the town park (the Duchess of Hamilton park) and Airbles Cemetery are also located in Airbles.
The suburb is served by Airbles railway station, which opened in 1989, offering services to and from Glasgow Central, lying on the Argyle Line. It is the nearest station to Motherwell landmarks such as the Civic Centre and Fir Park Stadium. There were plans to close the station, but nearby residents objected, saying it was a vital transport stop for that area of Motherwell.
