Amey fails in Scottish highways challenge

Transport Scotland resumed the tender process for its highway maintenance contract yesterday following a legal challenge from contractor Amey.

Transport Scotland today awarded two trunk road maintenance contracts, worth about £230M, following a successful bid to have a court suspension lifted.

It was suspended after a legal challenge from failed bidder Amey earlier this month.

Amey lodged an appeal with the Court of Session after it lost out to infrastructure management firm Bear Scotland in its bid for the contract

Amey and Bear Scotland had bid to operate and maintain 1,300km of trunk roads in north west and south west Scotland. Transport Scotland chose Bear Scotland as the preferred bidder for the 10 year contract last month.
