The engineers for the line were Joseph Locke and John Edward Errington, while the contractor was Thomas Brassey in partnership with William Mackenzie and Robert Stephenson. It was however absorbed by the Caledonian Railway, by an Act of Parliament on 18 August 1846, prior to the commencement of services between Rutherglen and Motherwell on 1 June 1849. Services on the section between Newton and Hamilton commenced on 5 September 1849.
