Encyclopedia Article for Livingston

"new"new town," West Lothian council area, southeastern Scotland, on the Glasgow-Edinburgh motorway (superhighway). Livingston lies mainly within the historic county of West Lothian, but the part of the town south of the River Almond belongs to the historic county of Midlothian. Livingston was designated a new town in 1962 with the dual purpose of accommodating population from Glasgow-30 miles (50 km) west-and providing a focus for economic growth to replace the declining heavy industries in West Lothian and the surrounding region. Once dependent on coal mining and oil shale, Livingston now houses a variety of computer hardware and software firms in five industrial estates. Pop. (2004 est.) 53,670.
