Amey scoops roads design job for Clyde crossing

Amey Consulting has won a design contract to align associated and new roads for the 184-metre road bridge that is to be built over the River Clyde.

The new two-lane crossing, expected to cost around £90m, will connect Renfrew to Clydebank and Yoker and is the centrepiece of a major infrastructure project to transform the Clyde waterfront.

The Clyde Waterfront and Renfrew Riverside (CWRR) project is being led by Renfrewshire Council and is part of the Glasgow City Region City Deal.

Amey said the project is also a significant step for its consulting arm in partnering with a private contractor on a major design and build programme in Scotland.

Working in partnership with Ramboll and delivering the design to construction contractor GRAHAM, Amey Consulting will undertake highways design including road alignment, drainage and pavement, ITS, street lighting, and traffic sign and signals works. Pedestrian walkways and cycle lanes will also be incorporated into all new roads and bridges.

The focal point for Amey Consulting will be the approach roads to the bridge (above). The remainder of the scheme comprises around 2km of new roads, three new roundabouts and signalised junctions around the west side of Glasgow.

Amey Consulting managing director Alex Gilbert said: ‘Utilising our extensive infrastructure design capability and our history of delivering highways schemes in Scotland, Amey Consulting is perfectly placed to deliver this project.

‘We will provide the people of Renfrewshire and its council developed design solutions which are efficient and sustainable, whilst supporting economic growth in the region. We will also deliver these works with local teams, opening new opportunities for people in Scotland.’

Leo Martin, managing director for GRAHAMS' civil engineering division, said: ‘The new bridge will provide a gateway to the area's fast-growing manufacturing innovation district and help better connect communities with significant employment and development opportunities for what will be a transformational project for the Renfrewshire and Glasgow City regions.’

The CWRR works are expected to be completed by the end of 2023.
