An independent report into the maintenance of Scotland’s trunk roads and motorways has found that operating companies are continuing to maintain their strong performance levels.
The report has been published by engineering consultant Halcrow - who as “PAGplus”, lead the Performance Audit Group commission for Transport Scotland.
Halcrow’s team of engineers, supported by accountants PricewaterhouseCoopers, carried out almost 100 detailed audits and monitoring activities of operating companies Amey, BEAR Scotland and Scotland TranServ while visiting over 1,000 road maintenance sites.
Bruce Lunn, Halcrow’s commission manager for PAGplus said:“Throughout the year our team has been monitoring and auditing the operating companies’ management systems and visiting their depots, roadworks sites and routes to assess and report on performance in maintaining the trunk road network across Scotland.
"Our most recent report examines 50 separate areas of performance in each of the four operating companies, with more than 93% found to be excellent, good or fair.”
The report said the operating companies performed well across activities including network availability, inspecting roads and structures, winter service and planned maintenance.
