Highways Reporters

Balfour Beatty has been awarded a £35 million contract by Perth and Kinross Council to create a new grade separated junction on the A9 dual carriageway in Scotland.

The contract, which has been awarded under the Scape Group’s National Civil Engineering and Infrastructure Framework, will also see the company build a new link road that will enable access to development land to the west of the city. This is the first of four phases of the Perth Transport Futures project which aims to alleviate congestion, enhance accessibility to the city and unlock £500m of economic growth for the local economy.

Balfour Beatty have worked in collaboration with Perth and Kinross Council under the Scape National Civil Engineering and Infrastructure Framework since December 2015.

Hector Macaulay, Balfour Beatty regional managing director, Scotland, said: “We are really pleased to have been awarded this key contract and to be a part of the exciting development plans in Perth & Kinross. We have a vast wealth of experience in delivering significant highway infrastructure schemes across Scotland including locally on the A9, A90 and the M90.

“Through the Scape framework we have had the opportunity to collaborate with the council at an early stage, and ultimately provide Perth and Kinross Council with price certainty and best value. Furthermore, delivery of this project will provide significant opportunities for local sub-contractors and suppliers, ensuring that the Perth and Kinross community not only benefits from greatly improved infrastructure, but also from the added economic benefit delivered through this scheme.”

The works are due to commence in September 2016, with completion expected in Spring 2019. The scheme will employ around 100 people and will provide a number of apprenticeship opportunities.
