Amey has been awarded a six-year contract to maintain and improve the motorways and trunk roads in south east Scotland.

The commission, which is valued at over £90m, is subject to up to two one-year extensions and will see Amey deliver engineering design and operational delivery services for more than 550 miles of road.

Under the Scottish Trunk Roads Unit South East (STRU SE) contract Amey will be responsible for managing and maintaining routes through central Scotland, the Lothians and Scottish borders, including Edinburgh’s city bypass and a long stretch of the M8 motorway which connects Glasgow and the country’s capital.

Mel Ewell, Amey’s chief executive, said: “Transport Scotland is a key client to Amey and we are delighted to build on our long-standing relationship to deliver effective infrastructure management and maintenance services for road users. As a business we recognise the importance of delivering a well-functioning road network in supporting the local economy and achieving the country’s future growth aspirations"

Transport Minister Keith Brown added: “Our motorways and A class roads are fundamental to Scotland’s economic well-being as we need well maintained routes, with reduced congestion and reliable journey times to allow the transfer of goods and services.

“This contract will result in the high quality and value for money trunk road maintenance service that our communities and businesses expect.”

The contract scope includes the design and delivery of major road and bridge maintenance work, as well as inspections to ensure the routes remain safe and well maintained. Amey will also carry out salting and snow clearing as well as gully cleaning and the repair of motorway lighting and traffic signals.
