£70m sub-contracts up for grabs

11/11/2014
Highways Reporters

Sub-contracts worth £70 million for the Aberdeen Bypass will be advertised by Transport Scotland.

The sub-contracts, which are in addition to more than £121 million of sub-contracts already advertised since August, include a wide range of business opportunities for SMEs like drainage works, plant and equipment hire, earthworks, steel reinforcement and rock crushing and screening.

Transport Minister Keith Brown said: “These significant sub-contract opportunities mark the final steps prior to the construction of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route/Balmedie-Tipperty scheme. In the coming weeks, another £70m in sub-contracts will be advertised through Public Contracts Scotland, with a further £30m to be advertised in the coming months, bringing the total package to £221m.

“These will provide excellent opportunities to get involved in the largest project to be procured using the Scottish Government’s innovative non-profit distributing funding model.”

Preparatory work on Aberdeen bypass is nearing completion with full construction due to start shortly.
